I'd pretty much agree with this. I might throw in Gunther, though, as 141 is such an underwhelming weight. Meyer/Sorensen/Kem are better wrestlers than he is, but they're in tougher weights or have to deal with an absolute hammer.
Very nice work. A 4 seed would be a pretty tremendous accomplishment.
Beating Maryland AND Wisconsin on the road is going to be incredibly difficult, though.
I have no idea where the Iowa coaches in any sport live, honestly.
Costello is a bit short for a heavyweight, I guess -- he might be in that 5-10 to 6-0 range. But the contrast in body types there is just extraordinary.
I worry about Wirfs playing OL, though -- I hope his arms aren't too long to be a left tackle at Iowa!
I love that photo so, so much. It's so wild.
Some extra baseball on tap this week too:
SCHEDULE CHANGE -- BONUS BASEBALL -- The #Hawkeyes will host Loras College on Wednesday at 5 p.m. at Banks Field!— Iowa Baseball (@UIBaseball) February 19, 2017
The forecast is for 69 (!) on Wednesday, so I guess they want to take advantage of the good weather.
Hawkeyes get their first win of the year!
All 4 runs came off homers. They hit a 2-run HR in the top of the 9th to take the lead. There was an almost 3 hr rain delay in the game, too.
285: #13 Billy Miller DEC (6-1) Steven Holloway
IOWA wins the dual 28-9
197: Cash Wilcke DEC (6-2) Dylan Reynolds
Solid little performance from Cash. Good to see him get a late TD to ice it.
The Flo announcer thought the same.
His shoulders looked pretty flush to the mat to me. Wish there had been a few more camera angles to look at it.
The lack of additional camera angles (and the lack of a riding time clock) is irritating me a bit.
I think that's the first 0-0 1st period of the dual.
Been some pretty good action in this dual. This match, not so much.
IOWA 25-6 rather.
Math is hard.
184: #3 Sammy Brooks MAJ DEC (14-4) #17 Dakota Geer
That was a wild one. Looked like Sammy had him pinned at the end of the 1st.
174: #11 Alex Meyer DEC (11-7) Ty Schoffstall
Meyer rode the heck out of him in the 3rd period.
