    Or perhaps Borlaug was the worst wrestler from Iowa...

    Maryland's best was probably "Butch" Keaser who won a World title and an Olympic silver.

    Alexander Cockburn is an anti semite who's political views are derived from communism. Need I say more? Borlaug would've kicked his ass up main street and down in a wrestling match.

    That was a pretty pathetic attempt at a trophy. Glad they pitched it and are designing something else.

    I reject the knee-jerk anti-Semite label given to anyone critical of Israeli policy by invoking the hot niece argument. Maxim magazine "hottest woman in the world" Olivia Wilde would distract Borlaug sufficiently from the sidelines for her uncle to pull off the upset. Face it - Gable is a greater wrestler AND a greater human being than Borlaug - you can't avoid the typical answer.
