    Would feel a lot better about it if we had Gallick.

    Crazy?
    no.

    Overoptimistic?
    maybe.

    Its a long shot but it can be done.

    I think it is a decent bet. It is just lunch.They are definitely a favorite but nothing wrong with a friendly bet.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: I bet my Hawkeye buddy...

    Ask for 5 team points and I think you got a shot to win. No Gallick, Jensen and Ward digressing, and Burk and Sorensen likely not contenders for placing, we need our big guys to wrestle outstanding tournaments. 5 points would give you a decent shot if we wrestle really well.

    Re: I bet my Hawkeye buddy...

    It isn't crazy but it is unlikely. Crazier things have happened, but it would be a fairly decent upset. It would be an upset of epic proportions if someone other than Iowa or ISU won it...


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Good bet, I like our chances.

    Hawks are wrestling very good right now, but Nationals is 5 weeks away, a lot can happen.

    I like your attitude, but I think next year is ISU's year.

    Re: I bet my Hawkeye buddy...

    I love the optimism but I am going to be a realist. I hope you didnt bet much because you are likely going to lose.
    Iowa would be favorites to place higher than us at 125, 133, 141, 149, 157, 174, 184? and they beat us at 165 once this year and did last year at HWT. SO??? Not a great bet... But I would be smiling for a long time if we could get it done.

    Re: I bet my Hawkeye buddy...

    I would love it if they could do it, but I'd bet on the Twister Sisters to make the Elite Eight again before I'd bet on beating the Hawks at this point. Not impossible, but some things would have to fall right. If Gallick were healthy, it might have to weigh it again.

    The Hawks will have some guys get upset. We need Long, Fanthorpe, Reader, Varner and Big Z to have good Tournaments. (3) Seniors need to step it up.

    The fun thing about wrestling is that it only takes one match to change evertything.

    I'd ask for at least 10...up to 14.5 if you can get it.
