    Crowd after Gadson's Pin

    Hey thought I would post a link to the video that the cyclone wrestling twitter account posted. This is after Gadson got the fall tonight. Iowa State Athletics's post on Vine

    Don't follow wrestling but why is called getting the fall? Serious question.

    I was watching on tv and I couldn't hear that reaction, but that is awesome.

    I'm guessing they were cheering more for the girl running for the vault.

    Re: Crowd after Gadson's Pin

    Great pin, but what made it special watching on Cyclone.Tv, he knew he had it and was playing up to the crowd before it happened. He was nodding. He is going to be somebody to be reckoned with in the tourney.

    I believe is called a fall because in ancient times the wrestlers would literally spar until one would be beaten, not being able to continue or orced into submission...often referred to as having fallen ( just as a dead soldier has fallen). Best I can come up with!

    The full term is a "pinfall". You just very rarely hear people use that term. It is almost always just called a pin or a fall. I have no idea where the name initially came from.

    Same thing could be said for the football program.

    I saw that too, I thought it was awesome he had the kid, basically smiled and nodded and stuck him. It would have been funnier if he was turned the other way and nodded at the Monkey Brothers (schwabs) and then stuck him.

    Re: Crowd after Gadson's Pin

    I watch the matches on cyclones.tv, and you can see a difference in how the guys are wrestling from the beginning of the year. Even against OSU when a lot of them were outmatched they fought harder and looked better. I don't know squat about wrestling, but even I can see a difference.

    I hope KJ has success. I watch his interviews and you can sense the amount to pride and passion he has for ISU and Wrestling in general.

    I thought they wrestled OSU very tough. Tanner wrestled Perry extremely tough and is by far one of my favorites so far. Kyven is a force to be reckoned with. Its very promising to see this improvement from the wrestling team. Its been a loing time coming and just hope it continues. Our strenght has always been the upper weights, just hope with Nickerson our lower weights will pick up the slack. I couldn't be at the meet last night and disappointed i couldn't be after the way things turned out.

    How come this team is not ranked? They seem to be on a roll.

    Re: Crowd after Gadson's Pin

    We are never given credit, even when we win. In ranking service(other than Kyven) when we beat a higher ranked guy, its an upset and we don't get a big move in the rankings.

    I have been arguing that Tanner Weatherman should have been ranked with a ranking service for 3 weeks. They had Cody Caldwell ranked and Tanner beat him earlier this year. But they responded that they had Tanner on their radar.

    Glad to see Tanner put a exclamation point on his win over Caldwell!!!
