As to the meet. Good meet. Tough loss at 125, but McDonough is just a stud.
The two close matches and 157 and 174 that reversed in the last 30 seconds were obviously huge.
I was disappointed in the PSU horses. No falls and not enough points. Other than Taylor, only Nico seemed to show up. The Altons havent wrestled much in a month and it showed.
It is a tough place to go to. 15,000 I guess can change things.
PSU would win this at home and I still think is the favorite to win the ncaas.
That Iowa crowd is such a difference maker, but they won't be there come the national tournament. Kudos to Iowa on this dual meet, but Penn State looks like it will be in the driver's seat again at the end of the year.
The Nationals, other wise known as the Big Ten tournament with friends invited, is in Iowa’s back yard, Wells Fargo Arena - Des Moines. As you know the chanpioship will be decided by the team that has the most wrestlers who out perform their seeds.
The 157 and 174 results once again demonstrate that it’s not over until it’s over, i.e., Rob Rohn 2002 win in the finals at 184.
