    Rome picks Cyclones

    Rome's talking about the match up right now. Just called Fanthorpe a FREAK and has liked us all year. Good to hear the Clones getting talk on National Radio!

    Rome

    He picks ISU to win! He loves Nick Fanthorpe and Jon Reader. Go Cyclones! It could come down to bonus points and he doesn't like our ability to get bonus points in those matches. Let's hope he is right on this one. Never seen a guy with a single leg takedown that nasty.

    Re: Rome picks Cyclones

    How many times did he reference water polo helmets?

    Re: Rome picks Cyclones

    I thought the segment was awsome. I was laughing so hard, I almost cried. Life is so much more fun when you can laugh and not take things too personal. I know he was making fun, but not the less, it was funny. Hopefully in the next few years, wrestling will make a comeback and become more mainstream, so Rome will actually be serious. Thanks to title 9, probably not, though.

    Rome - as in Jim Rome? Did he make this pick on his radio show? If so, I'm glad he's tuned into college wrestling.

    Of all the major sports shows, Rome does occasionally talk about college wrestling; Cael, etc. Most of the time he's busting on college wrestlers about wearing a unitard.

    Re: Rome picks Cyclones

    I think another reason he did it was to get calls and emails slamming wrestling. If that was his goal, he succeeded.

    Re: Rome picks Cyclones

    I'd rather Rome pick against us. I'm not a fan of tools like him being on our side.

    So what's wrong with all of that? Doesn't seem too crazy...


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...
