I've been admiring fuhr's clever sig line this month, but I have a feeling it's about to change.  I wonder if he is up for another bet.

fuhr, if you want Iowa, I'll give you two points even though they are #1.  I haven't decided on a new sig for you, but I'll try to make it something you can be proud to display.  If you want the new sig duration to be a week instead of a month, I'm OK with that.

Shameless plug: I will be there...

Also, recently announced is the Delta Air Lines Flyaway weekend January 20-22, which will include Iowa's duals at Ohio State and Penn State, and perhaps another dual to be announced on Saturday.

If Clark wins Midlands do they still start Ramos?  Or if you want to save team points isn't Clark  the go to guy?

If Clark wins Midlands maybe its an issue, but if Ramos wins and is #2 you can't sit him to save team points.  You have to give him a shot at #1.
Barring injury, this is Clark's last shot at winning the spot.  I'm sure he's motivated to give it his all.  Would be nice to see them in the finals, along with Marion and Ballweg at 141.  Heck, while I'm dreaming, what about Telford and Rasing in the finals at Hwt!

I will be up for another sig bet, but I think we should wait on points given until closer to the event.  DSJ in or out of the lineup will make a difference I believe.  Dumb on my part, I should take the 2 points at home and be happy but want it to be fair when the event rolls around.

That sounds right to me.  I see you are a man of honor.

Wait a minute....are you saying that the #1 ranked Hawkeyes are a two point dog? At CHA? Really?  :)

I didn't say that.  n9 said that.  I said, I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, take the points, and run.  But I'm not.

Here are my thoughts and let me say this dual scares me to death. But I would rather have the hawks lose to oky state than psu.

125: Matt wins by dec. and Hawks take a 3-0.
133: Ramos..... can't do it Oliver wins by dec. 3-3
141: Marion wins by dec. and Hawks grab the lead back 6-3
149 Parks over Kelly and ties it back up at 6-6
157: Moore wins..... a dec. over Bailey close with a  last second takedown & gives the Hawks the lead 9-6.
174: Lofthouse wins a dec. and we win 2 in a row making it 12-6 Hawks. Momentum building....
184: Perry majors Wagner and we are in trouble.... 12-10 Hawks
197: Rosholt/Byers dec. Gambrall and the Hawks lose the lead. 13-12 Cowboys
Hwt: Just when it looks like the streak is over Telford wins over the Russian and flips..... oops he just wins the dual for us making it 15-13 Hawks and the roof is blown off Carver and the place goes nuts......

this dual will really come down to whether or not DSJ can go.  taking the Midlands off will help him, but a knee can be a very problematic injury

Rochester, Austin, Albert Lea all get IPTV.  Don't think Owatonna does but not 1005 sure on that.

This isnt last year where a freshman was trying to grab the spot from a Jr.  It was still up in the air last year.  I don't think it is anymore.  Ramos will always be the wrestler that will score more points in a tournament than Clark will.  Ramos is clearly the 133lber for Iowa and will be wrestling against Oliver in the dual.

Fuhr, when I offered two points I thought I had heard DSJ was definitely out, but that may not be right.  If he's out, I'll stick with my two point offer.  If he's in, you should give me three points.  When are we likely to know if he's in or out?

If I win, your new sig will be:
