I saw Ruth get beat before. He doesn't deserve the #1 seed.

I'm with VAIS on this . i've seen Bosak lose a lot of matches plus he hasn't been tearing up things since his staph infection. Chewy took him to the limit and he is ranked in the mid teens.Steve is a personal favorite of mine yet unless he stalls the entire match ruth will beat him to death .
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.

The seeds are based on who is better rather than past accomplishments.

After looking at these seeds though I think whoever claimed that The Scuffle is better than the Midlands this year just lost their argument.
I am trying to remeber who that was. I posted a thread about that and never heard a peep

Really wanna get this going again?

Last time I blew your argument out of the water you disappeared.

You asked which was more top heavy.  Midlands has zero of the top 5 teams, and 2 number 1 ranked wrestlers. 

Scuffle has 3 top 5 teams, and 5 number 1's. 

You're still wrong.  It's as though you like me shining a light on your incorrect opinions.

Midlands had Mango. Nuff said.

Anybody else out there think Brands is a coward for not participating in the Scuffle OR the Midlands? I think it's pathetic.

So Ruth is ahead of the undefeated returning National Champ at this weight? Did Bosak take a loss I missed?

He should be, Ruth is a lot better than Bosak.

Nope.  It's disappointing, but coward is not a word that entered my mind.

You are right, that's poor wording. However I'm disappointed that Brands seems to exhibit a tendency to avoid tough competition whenever possible. Such as dodging big dual meets when they aren't held in Iowa, for example.

Brands intentionally took money out of his pocket by not entering Midlands.  He gets a bonus for winning Midlands.  His team would have been a big favorite to win.  Instead he put the team's interest first.  The furthest thing from cowardice.

Didn't Brands do something really really bad in his younger years?

Just curious...but how is Brands helping his team by keeping them out of a tough tournament? Wouldn't competing against other good teams be good for the Hawkeyes? Not trying to pick a fight here, but I don't understand how dodging Midlands and the Scuffle are helping Iowa.

He feared the Mango brand. Wisely in retrospect.

Don't question what Iowa does.  PSU, on the other hand, is always fair game.
