This is hilarious!  Thanks for sharing Gantry.

OBTW, I think I saw an illegal paw to the back in that replay.

Wow, that was by far the best match of the finals and arguably the entire tourney.  I've seen Ness beaten before but I've never seen him out-Nessed so handily.  I hope they meet again in the NCAA finals.

What is funk?
I was being cynical by quoting Delgado after he beat an injured McDonough a couple years ago.  You'd have to ask him.  I can tell you what irony means.

Another way to look at it is that Iowa won B1Gs despite a lackluster performance (especially in the finals).  This could be indicative of not being as good as everyone thought.  Or it could mean that they'll pull away for the title.  Regardless, it should make for an exciting tournament and a great opportunity for the Iowa haters to practice their "boo's".

Speaking of fan participation, does anyone know if that was Kokesh's dad making all that noise during the 174lb final?  An older, white haired gentleman was putting his entire being into chanting "Kooo-Kessshhh" again and again.  The arena was packed but everyone could hear him.  He was wearing red and sitting in the first row of the Nebby section.  He was very committed.

Just remember that technique beats funk.

Hunter Stieber #3 seed at 149 pounds with a 1-2 record. Weak.
You're probably right, but 149 is a relatively weak class in the B1G.  Same thing with Delgado as the #2 seed at 125.  It just happens these are the weakest weights in the B1G and both have a high profile wrestler who's been injured.

Today's match between Iowa and Missouri could be the poster child for what's wrong with our brand.  The lack of offensive minded wrestlers is boring and it won't keep current fans much less generate new fans.  Win, lose, or draw it's not good for our sport and certainly not good from this fan's perspective.  There was lots of riding time but I can't recall any back points. 

That was definitely a disappointment...and I would have felt the same way had Iowa won.  This biggest kick in the gut is that it will be called the same way at B1Gs and NCAAs.  Every year I get my hopes up that this year things will be different.  And every year I find myself disappointed.  I should learn my lesson but I have high expectations.

Not sure how I feel about this proposal as there would be second and third order effects; many unintended consequences. Besides the jaded side of me thinks it's more about money and indoctrination than education.  Also, isn't this essentially equal to a redshirt?

I would choose neutral in my semi-finals match my senior year.
