    After DAY ONE scoring from 2008 Wrestling Nationals

    This is how things looked last year after day one. Iowa had seven wrestlers in the championship bracket at this point last year compared to six this year, but they have scored more bonus points this year through one day than they did one year ago.


    ISU had six wrestlers move on to the Friday morning quarterfinals last year, so as you can see, they have done better in bonus point scoring, too.


    Just for those that are curious, as I know the questions will come: there are a LOT of points in play tomorrow. A lot. Iowa went from 29 on Thursday night to 108 on Friday night last year, with second place at the time Ohio State having 71, and ISU then in third with 68. A big thing, and I don't think we will see this tomorrow, is that Jake Varner was the only Cyclone remaining in the championship bracket last year once the Friday sessions were over.


    Again, here is the scoring after the Day One session at last year's Nationals


    Place Team Points
    1. Iowa 29.5
    2. Nebraska 26.5
    3. Iowa State 25
    4. Central Michigan 24
    Minnesota 24
    6. Missouri 23
    Oklahoma State 23
    8. Ohio State 22
    9. Cornell 17.5
    Penn State 17.5

    Classic hawkeye, conitnually living in the past. J/K Jon, but give us this year and the potential match ups to look forward to tomorrow if you can.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    ISU has a legit shot at getting 4 to the finals. This is going to be a lot closer than last year.

    Yeah, I'm not sure why you keep comparing this year to last.

    Re: After DAY ONE scoring from 2008 Wrestling Nationals

    I have a number of reasons for posting these things on this site and mine. None of it is gloating, or saying past results will dictate future results. I find it interesting to look back at last year at this stage of the game, as ISU brought 10 and Iowa brought 9 to that event, too. And I think from an ISU perspective, it's clear to see that the Clones came to wrestle with regards to bonus points, which is a huge turnaround from last year, something Cael told me last March he wanted to focus on for this season.

    I think folks that follow the sport probably like seeing stuff like this, if not, just ignore it because it will be clearly labeled last year.

    Jon - are you freaking serious? I think most if not all people would prefer that you were banned from this site, especially since you are so quick to ban everyone on your little HN site if you don't like what they say about your precious little EIU Squawkers..

    Another worthless Miller post....

    With all due respect Jon, I fail to see the connection and I do follow the sport. I also would be saying this if ISU had won it last year.

    Re: After DAY ONE scoring from 2008 Wrestling Nationals

    I may not agree with everything miller says on things on this site, but i do think that he should be allowed to talk sports with other sports fans.

    Yeah we all know he is a hawk and that is not going to change.

    But atleast he shows interset in cyclone sports

    And as a reporter he is able to see things from different views

    the post from this thread he comparing the chances for each team the rest of the tourney

    Re: After DAY ONE scoring from 2008 Wrestling Nationals

    Miller's posts are fine. Iowa and ISU are basically the same teams as last year minus Perry for Iowa. These comparisons are valid and interesting. All Miller is saying is that ISU is scoring a lot more bonus points than last year.

    Re: After DAY ONE scoring from 2008 Wrestling Nationals

    I don't think that Miller should be banned. I might not agree with everything he says, but I always like to hear his insight on issues, partly because he is a hawk fan and he is normally not obnoxious about it (I would whether hear from him than anyother hawk fan on this site).

    As for this particular thread, it sounds allot like Miller is trying to layout how the hawks are going to win, though he denies it. If that isn't the purpose, I still don't understand what the purpose of this thread is, especially since he started another thread earlier just like this.

    My personal opinion is that this will be a very close race between the two Iowa schools. We are tied going into the second day. Iowa has more wrestlers advancing, by 1, but ISU has more wrestlers overall. I think our extra few in consolation rounds will make up for not having as many advancing. The big question is can ISU keep up with bonus points.
