Damn that was boring. Thoughts from you guys? I wonder how many potential fans were driven away after watching that match?

I didn't think it was all that bad.  It wasn't like they were circling around doing jack squat for the entire match.  it was any more boring than 197 frankly.  Telford had a chance to finish it and him working that single while Coon fought it off was pretty exciting.

it was a heavyweight match.  90% of them are that way.

It's painful watching the big guys sometimes. Pretty dull match all around, but I thought Michigan did pretty good. Lots of "weak" wrestlers holding their Hawkeye betters to regular decisions. Pretty impressive, actually. That kid with the 4-10 record wrestling 2 weights up and taking on Evans was quite impressive.

I've come to the conclusion that I like watching Brian Murphy. Fun scrambler to watch!  Really enjoyed his match with Kelly (I think it was Kelly). Fun stuff!

Houdashelt vs. Sorensen made Coon vs. Telford seem exciting.

Didn't see it yet. Lots of pushing like the big boys do?

Pushing isn't the issue.  I'd rather watch a sumo match than watch what some call "riding."  There is 0 attempt to turn the other wrestler.  No intention whatsoever of getting anything but the riding time point, and once they get it they still simply hang on.  The only action is initiated by bottom man, and if he tries it then the answer is to run him out of bounds immediately so you can start the "ride" again.  149 is a void in excitement this year.  I'm glad Iowa has an elite 149 pounder again, but I don't really care to watch him wrestle.
