Also, is anyone a member of Flowrestling's technique wave? The NWCA All-Star Classic is tomorrow and I'm actually pretty excited for the Dake/Taylor matchup. I'm also really interested in the heavyweight battle between Missouri's Bradley and Northwestern's McMullan. I'm not a member but was thinking of doing their 7 day free trial and then just canceling it, just wondering if anyone has any experience with them.
Also, for those who haven't seen it, UI-Mags has a cool website on Iowa wrestling. Theres a tour of the wrestling facility, info on the coaches and history etc. Pretty cool, heres the link.
Just called up to Chattanooga and got a ticket for the day so I will get to see those three duals on the 16th. I don't get many opportunities so see the Hawks wrestle live so I am pretty excited.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
Just for any ones info I upvote every post in this thread if I have upvotes. Swarm I heard Colon moved to 125. wolf to 33 and Reiter transfered from minny and is at 141 that is a solid front 3 UNI is building a pretty good team
Yup I just watched Schwab's press conference from media day yesterday, they expect Colon to be at 125 by Midlands (really sucks that Iowa's not going to be there) and Wolfy could probably drop to 133 by next month. Both weights are these guys' natural weights, and they really expect a lot of things out of Colon here. The only problem is that UNI doesn't really have a guy at 125 until Colon drops down, but that seems to be about their only problem with their lineup this year. No forfeited weights and no scrambling around to fill weights this year for UNI.
And for those of you wondering, single-dual tickets go on sale this Monday for all of Iowa's home duals this year.
I thought Taylor backed out due to injury?
I don't think so....Flo is still promoting it heavily, I guess I don't know for sure.
Wrestling owns the Olympics
Swarm means you don't answer your inbox. Are you going to the Harold Nichols to watch UNI next Saturday? Let me know we are going. And Bp that and Basketball are what we have to look forward to now.
Cant get here soon enough. Time to watch an aggressive team whose coach doesnt hope the other team beats itself.
Here are the results of the All Star so far. Dake and Taylor did wrestle
125: No. 2 Nico Megaludis (Penn State) dec. No. 3 Jesse Delgado (Illinois), 4-3

Just trying to learn some wrestling!
I know son you will soon enough. First you must learn the ways of the ninja
And the rest of the All Star results
184: No. 3 Robert Hamlin (Lehigh) dec. No. 4 Kevin Steinhaus (Minnesota), 5-3
197: No. 3 Matt Wilps (Pittsburgh) pinned No. 2 Quentin Wright (Penn State), 6:50
285: No. 2 Dom Bradley (Missouri) dec. No. 5 Mike McMullan (Northwestern), 3-2
Nice work Brad.
My only expectation of the night was for the Dake/Taylor match to be close and it was. I thought last year at nationals that Taylor would just roll Dake, obviously I don't know a whole lot.
They didn't wrestle the same weight last year. But I did think Taylor would win but really the match plays in Dakes strengths,he is kind of like Howe not flashy but almost impossible to take down and he waits for you to screw up and bam wins 3to2 or 2 to 1 or whatever. He did stick Taylor at the freestyles though
And also here I see that Wright is realizing the jump from 184 to 197 is not easy and the people that ranked him so high are also dumb as . I mean look at GG last year and he was naturally bigger than Wright. He is going to have his hands full at 97 the size and strength difference is a HUGE factor. The rest of the matches pretty much wne t what I figured it is early in the year and they are not in total shape yet all pretty low scoring and close
