    One Super Meet once a year or twice?

    IT wasn't but just a few years ago . . Iowa didn't want to wrestle ISU twice a year. In the RAG this morning, we see a shift in positions.

    Personally, once a year is enough seeing "Roid Rage" Brands tramping around outside the mat like a caged gorilla . . . somebody needs to remind him this is not ultimate fighting.

    I would also wait until Cael gets all the pieces together with his national recruiting. Hold these yahoos off for a couple more years . . because I have a sneaking suspicion this deal is a pre emptive strike to deal a death blow to Cael's recruiting in Iowa. I don't trust Iowa . . never have . . never will.

    Here's the link: Keeler: Double the pleasure of Iowa-ISU wrestling | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

    Anyway, I think it would be fun to have it back like that. We dropped it in the middle of Iowa's 15 year winning streak if I remember right. I also didn't see anywhere in that article that says that Iowa or Iowa State is against it, but that it seems like the Big Ten schedule has kept this from continuing. I guess it sounds like you're more afraid of losing to Iowa because you don't think we have the horses.

    Yep . . this is Iowa's super roid bowl. ISU needs to focus on the nationals.

    Yup, Iowa didn't do anything after the big dual last year.

    From the column before it gets changed:

    “Being able to wrestle in Hilton and wrestle in Carver,” ponders Iowa State junior Nick Kragthorpe, the Cyclones’ 133-pound All-American.

    Pick you poison bro . . getting beat once or twice (right now). Iowa is a better program at the PRESENT . . also, this is a contrast in coaching style. Roid Rage versus Technique.

    Would we be putting our athletes at increased health risk by giving them more exposure to that dreaded pestulance known as "herkies"?

    Just kidding. I think twice a year would be great. It would give both teams a one more competetive dual to prepare them for Nationals.

    So Brands says that he wants to wrestle twice but unfortunately he can't because he doesn't have the time in January. Still seems like he's making excuses as to why he doesn't want to wrestle ISU twice.

    That is good if ISU can win its share of these meets. Right now, I don't see it happening. Maybe in a couple of years . . but not yet.

    I read that too, I didnt know that he was related to the Louisville head coach. Great attention to detail by the RAG's best writer
