    Re: Metcalf interview on Flowrestling

    Personally, I like his mentality in that interview. It was more of a "I beat myself" and not a "he's better than me" attitude.


    "Seven minutes to glory."

    That sounds like a sore loser mentality.

    Metcalf's demeaning comments about Palmer, a day before, reveal a lot about him. You can be intense with class. Ask Cael...

    sounds consistent with all of the iowa programs philosophies on losing.

    Consider the source and it doesn't.

    Re: Metcalf interview on Flowrestling

    Here's the deal; Brent Metcalf is dominant, and all wrestling fans can see his brilliance. If you are an Iowa fan, you absolutely love the guy. If you are not an Iowa fan, first of all, you hate all things Iowa wrestling out of spite, and second, re-read the first thing.

    The fact is, every single team in the nation and their fanbase would take Brent Metcalf as their 149 pounder. If you say you wouldn't, we'll have to disagree.

    Then why did he lose?

    Except NC State.

    Metcalf has two losses in his career, both to that guy (who was undefeated this year).

    Re: Metcalf interview on Flowrestling

    OK, NC State. Will give you that :)

    Amazing turnaround in a year where Metcalf beat him 19-3 at the all star meet, to that last night. But I think people get what I am saying. If you don't, then we'll just disagree. And I went in and edited my first post, as that was probably too strong of a statement by me.

    Re: Metcalf interview on Flowrestling

    Brent Metcalf is a great wrestler and I enjoy watching him, but there is definitely a screw loose in that guys head. His mind is just constantly wandering. Every interview he has I get scared for the reporters life. He seems like he could just snap at any second. He's the type of guy that I would want to be as far as possible from if he was drinking.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Metcalf interview on Flowrestling

    He is just a poster boy for Iowa Wrestling. Is he great...undoubtedly. The greatest? Not according to NC State or *cough* Cael Sanderson *cough*. Would I take him? sure. Would he act this way at ISU?..probably not. He is a product of their school and coach. When is the last time a University of Iowa team lost in ANYTHING and ever said, that team/individual was better and out performed me. It is ALWAYS, "I beat myself, the refs beat me, our team didn't show up, the other person/team wanted it more." Combine that with the fact that Brands, while a great wrestler and obviously a good and motivating coach, is a complete classless a-hole. Is it a surprise that his wrestlers exude a winning is everything classlessness? There is going to be a lot more hate and resentment building up by other teams against Iowa because of the way they act, talk, and carry themselves under Brands. As long as Iowa is the best and bringing home the hardware then they can say, "who cares." But, as parity sets in there will be a lot of people returning the favor when they do beat Iowa and their wrestlers so they should get used to it. I am in no way in favor of the backflip but can see why it would be nice to rub the iowa arrogance right back in their face. You stay classy, hawks.

    Yeah, I'm 100% certain ISU fans would HATE it if their wrestlers showed the same type of confidence that Iowa wrestlers do.

    I'm sorry, but the mentality that "the other team was just better" is for losers. If you plan on being a winner, you don't come out and say, "yeah, he was just better." That's stupid.

    If it makes you feel better about your sports teams by saying, "Yeah, we're classy because our coaches and players say things like 'the other team was better'", then so be it. I, for one, would not have been in the least bit pleased if Metcalf would have come out and said, "yeah, even though I beat him by technical fall earlier this year, he is much better than me now."
