  1. Thoughts: Chad Red doesn't appear to be improving at all and has lost to every significant opponent this year. It appears to be only a matter of time until IU passes Purdue up. Angel has brought a totally different vibe. There's still a lot of straight on offense and guys struggling to create action, but I can see a definite change in the program. Micic looks like a champion to me. Poised and calm, he's straight up wrecking guys. He's on a Hodge type trajectory. He's 9-0 with 2 Falls, 2 TF, 3 Majors. The way he broke Pletcher was impressive.
  2. Why isn't Rypel on the IU roster? https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/33/indiana/profile
  3. How great would it be if Zadick landed at IU? The dude is an absolute wizard at teaching the sport. https://iawrestle.com/2018/08/09/mike-zadick-no-longer-on-isu-staff/
  4. What can we expect? How much has the time off affected his progress? Will he ever be the same wrestler? Do you think he projects as an AA?

  6. straight up strangling dudes at the Scuffle. He tortured Cole Manley and broke him.
  7. I thought Jeremiah Reitz would perform better than that at the Scuffle. He ended up getting wrecked 19-3 by the App State kid.
  8. Nate Jackson gassed and quit as usual
  9. https://spark.adobe.com/page/AoNjdMKT1QHWc/ Ranked #13 by Flo
  10. Alex Tirapele was fired from Penn after 3 years... because they want to win. Goldman is a travesty and has never done anything for wrestling at IU or for the state of Indiana.
  11. Micic is a seriously dangerous bracket killer this year. Mark it down. Clark loses to Hall. Micic runs through Alber and Hall and drags Tomasello in to a grinder and wins to make the finals.
  12. The thing that stands out to me when watching this team is how loose and creative they are. You can see the wear and tear on a lot of teams, even early on. They all seem to be wrestling with a sense of joy. Nobody is matching this team offensively right now. Most of these guys do not struggle getting to their opponents... at all. Yes they're getting one blue chip after another, but even middling guys like Gulibon seem like they can get to their offense at will. Gulibon was getting owned in this match before the 3rd period then this happened
  13. Both of these guys have been wrestling above 184 for years. Woods hasn't wrestled that low since before high school.
  14. What is Ersland going to do with Brunner/Woods log jam?
  15. 149 is gonna be crazy this year http://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/weight/149 Rank Wrestler School Conference Year Record Win % Bonus % Points #1 Retherford, Zain #3 Penn State Big Ten JR Jul-00 100% 100% 2117.78 #2 Sorensen, Brandon #4 Iowa Big Ten JR Sep-00 100% 88.89% 2008.48 #3 Mayes, Lavion #5 Missouri MAC SR Feb-00 100% 0% 1814.64 #4 Chishko, Solomon #6 Virginia Tech ACC SO 1-Apr 80% 40% 1748.87 #5 Jordan, Micah #2 Ohio State Big Ten SO Nov-00 100% 81.82% 1729.99 #6 Collica, Anthony #1 Oklahoma State Big 12 SR Feb-00 100% 0% 1726.32 #7 Oliver, Justin #18 Central Michigan
  16. It got ugly but the future is looking pretty good. A lot of guys melted, which I always hate to see, but it's early. I'll remain optimistic for now. Streck is a savage and he's ranked higher as a RS frosh than Kral has ever been. Hope he hangs around as a workout partner.
  17. This recruiting class for Iowa is incredibly impressive. http://www.flowrestling.org/article/48211-no-1-jacob-warner-commits Multiple P4P #1's
  18. http://www.purduesports.com/sports/m-wrestl/recaps/103016aag.html WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Tightly contested matches were the storyline of Purdue's Wrestle-Offs on Sunday inside Holloway Gymnasium with five of the nine bouts decided by one point or were pushed into sudden victory. On the other end, there was one pin and a major decision issued by a true freshman. "You expect tight matches with teammates that know each other so well," Purdue head wrestling coach Tony Ersland said. "However, I'm not happy with tight matches when we have the guys that can score points and I want to see them
  19. What are the odds that Purdue lands Jacob Warner? http://iowawrestlingblog.com/2016/07/jacob-warner-interview-2/
