    Z is my favorite wrestler, but I gotta give the intro props... even though ISU isn't really Iowa's true rival...

    That picture of the Iowa Wrestling team is the most distraught national champion team in any sport ever.
    They all look ******. To them it must be an individual sport.

    Just looking at that picture I am kind of surprised Z couldn't roll out of that move. Maybe he tried and got his shoulders on the mat for just a second too long.

    If you're looking at it that way, why do individual national championships get awarded? The rest of the team had nothing to do with Varner winning his.

    I am just saying that if a TEAM wins a national title you should be happy. If you are the only guy on the team to not hit a home run in baseball but the team still wins the world series I am pretty sure you would be happy about it. I know they wanted to win for themselves however College sports are about team, not individual.

    Wrestling is not like baseball or any other team sport. It's individual first, team second.

    Re: Hawkeye athletics intro page...

    although the hockeyes won the n/c in the wrestle backs and still didn't produce an individual n/c champion, thanks to caldwell of n.c.state, was to say the least shocking. i for one have often wondered why they give team points for medical forefits or any other forefit for that matter not only on the collegiate level but the high school level as well. shouldn't the athlete 'earn' the team points on the mat against an opponent or give less points for a forefit? if this would have been the case, then the hocks may not have won the n/c...any thoughts?

    Re: Hawkeye athletics intro page...

    You have to award some type of points or coaches could duck the other teams best wrestlers and not give up fall or tech fall points. Luck of the draw. We draw a no. 3 seed to wrestle they draw a guy who I believe was injured wrestling Cyler. And no, I dont think Cyler wrestles dirty and tried to hurt.

    Well one was for 7th place on Saturday morning so there wasn't any matches after that, and the other was the first match on Friday for Tshirt and he went out the next match after so I wouldn't say they helped with prep time or being less tired for the Hawks.
