    Cael had his guys ready at the conference tournament. Can he do it twice?

    Past history says 'close, but no cigar'.

    His guys have historically fallen short when bonus points were critical. Has he learned enough as a coach to help the guys get those extra points that will be needed if the team is to win a title?

    Iowa knows how to do it. Does Penn State?

    It's true that Iowa and Coach Brands have proven they know how to win NCAAs whereas Cael's teams haven't yet. However, if you're talking about bonus points then Penn St has easily been better at scoring them than Iowa this season in big tournaments. Iowa has a good chance to finish ahead of Penn St, but I don't think it's likely they will score more bonus points.

    Going to need to start adding content to this thread again (not just external links) or we'll have to close it.

    Penn State 92.5 3 Finalist 2 3rd-6th
    Cornell 75 1 Finalist 4 3rd-6th
    Iowa 74 1 Finalist 4 3rd-6th
    Oklahoma State 65.5 1 Finalist 2 3rd-4th

    1st place 4 points + 1 pt Advancement = 5
    3rd 4 points + 2 x 1/2 pt advancement =5
    Falls 2 pts

    PSU max points = 15 ch + 6 Bonus + 10 consi + 8 Bonus = 39 total
    Cornell max points = 5 ch + 2 bonus + 20 consi + 16 bonus = 43 total + 75 = 118
    Iowa max points = 5 ch + 2 bonus + 20 consi + 16 bonus = 43 points + 74 = 117
    Oklahoma State = 5 ch + 2 bonus + 10 consi + 8 bonus = 25 points + 65.5 = 90.5
    COWBOYS are out of it

    125
    McD wins
    PSU 92.5
    Iowa 79
    Cornell 75

    133
    Long vs Grey
    Grey 3rd
    Long 5th
    PSU 93.5
    Cornell 80
    Iowa 79

    141
    Marion wins
    PSU 93.5
    Iowa 84
    Cornell 80

    149
    Molinaro vs Dake
    Dake wins
    PSU 93.5
    Cornell 85
    Iowa 84

    157
    Taylor wins
    St John wins
    PSU 98.5
    Iowa 89
    Cornell 85

    174 COULD be 3rd PSU vs Cornell match of the day
    Lewnes 3rd
    Ruth 5th
    PSU 99.5
    Cornell 90
    Iowa 89

    184 Could be Cornell vs Iowa for 3rd
    Wright loses
    Gambrall 3rd
    Bosak 4th
    PSU 99.5
    Cornell 94
    Iowa 94


    197 Could be Cornell vs Iowa
    Simaz 3rd
    Lofthouse 4th
    PSU 99.5
    Cornell 99
    Iowa 98

    So it looks like if PSU wins just one match out of 7 tomorrow, they might clinch it.
    If they go 3-4 they definitely will.

    Going in and still, it all comes down to bonus points.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
