Thread: Minnesota v. Illinois

    Granted, it isn't the NCAA tournament, but I worked one of the tables at the UNI Open this year and saw Ervin wrestle up close and personal. I was really impressed with him then and expected to see good things from him in the future.

    His "stuff" that he was pulling on top wasn't a fluke; he did it all day long at the UNI Open too, eventually placing third.

    The Ness thing is concerning just because with a back injury, who knows when you're really back. But I think the other Minny guys may have been looking ahead to Iowa/training thru this meet to set up for Iowa, so that's why they were a little flat. Not that the match against Illinois wasn't important, but the Minnesota-Iowa rivalry is among the most heated in the country, and I'm sure it's been a focal point for J (get well soon) and the staff.

    How do we know Ness had a back injury? That wasnt what I had gathered about his time away.

    Kinda had to be impressed that Minny dug deep and came away with the win. Minny looked whipped going into the break .
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    All the things I've heard, mostly from Minny posters, was the the reason Ness was out for most of the beginning of the year was a back injury. I suppose they could have been wrong/lying, but what have you heard?

    There's a first time for everything so I guess I will agree with Chop for once. I deleted the rest of his post as he got carried away.

    If Ness gets healthy (big if) he will make the adjustments and be in the title hunt once again. You may remember that he defended his legs in St Louis.

    I just don't see it...David Thorn is not elite. I don't think he'll place"

    Good ankle shots, with quick finishes, will do that to anyone though. With ankle picks, specifically, that hit, I'm not sure that I've ever thought of or seen a defense that can stop that.
