Skip to comments.No. 3 Hawks start fast, beat top-ranked Penn State
Posted on 02/02/2013 7:40:03 AM PST by traderrob6
On paper, the third-ranked Iowa wrestling team had every bit a chance to win Friday nights dual with Penn State as the top-ranked Nittany Lions.
Both teams had top-ranked wrestlers and both had matches they should have won.
The Hawkeyes took care of the matches they were favored in and did a little more as Tony Ramos earned a big win by fall at 133 and sophomore Mike Evans won the only true swing match of the night during a 22-16 victory over Penn State in front of a loud and crazy sold-out crowd of 15,077 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
The win gave the third-ranked Hawkeyes (16-1, 6-0) sole possession of first place in the Big Ten and snapped Penn States (8-1, 5-1) streak of 20 consecutive dual victories.

Terrific key words. For a 3rd grader maybe.
I didn’t do that Einstein.
So an administrator added those key words? If so, that’s a new low.
As to the meet. Good meet. Tough loss at 125, but McDonough is just a stud.
The two close matches and 157 and 174 that reversed in the last 30 seconds were obviously huge.
I was disappointed in the PSU horses. No falls and not enough points. Other than Taylor, only Nico seemed to show up. The Altons havent wrestled much in a month and it showed.
It is a tough place to go to. 15,000 I guess can change things.
PSU would win this at home and I still think is the favorite to win the ncaas.
It appears so. I happen to be a Hawkeye fan and the 3 keywords I added were sports, wrestling and Iowa.
The thread was changed from the “News” forum to “General chat” and the disgusting keywords were added.
I have lodged a complaint for what good it will do.
Thanks traderrob...the haters aren’t going to like the month of February. Lots of news will be coming out.
Pardon my ignorance. I am a transplanted Iowan myself. Which “keywords” are you talking about?
I thought it was some kind of NCAA law that Iowa and Iowa St would always be ranked 1 and 2 in either order. When did that change?
PSU hired Cael Sanderson a few years ago and has won the last two national championships.
Some nimrod added “pedophilestate; pedstate” to my list of keywords.
Actually Oklahoma State is rated number 2. That may change now with them taking over the number 1 spot and Iowa #2.
Iowa’s only loss came at the hands of OSU. PSU was off their game a bit last night though so nothing may change.
Hey traderrob - what’s the average Hawk fan’s view of Ferentz these days? I was sort of shocked at his last contract. You see him being there in a few years?
That Iowa crowd is such a difference maker, but they won't be there come the national tournament. Kudos to Iowa on this dual meet, but Penn State looks like it will be in the driver's seat again at the end of the year.
I think the vast majority of fans are still strongly behind him. He had a pretty fair amount of talent this year but they underperformed ie. Vandenberg.
As you know though a few more bad years and that could all change.
Appears that wiser minds prevailed, they removed the offensive keywords.
I added the keywords: juvenile, administrator
That might have had something to do with it. Good luck in the Big Tens traderrob...
We can tell who adds keywords.
Yeah, but can you activate the camera on my laptop without me knowing it?
No, just listen to you breathing.
That’s not me. That was my dog.
I love how the Iowa crowd screams for back points or when they don’t like an escape or a non-escape. They are all in unison and they are all on the same page. Reffing those meets can’t be easy, and it has to be harder in Carver/Hawkeye.
PSU crowds are the same way, but Rec Hall only holds 6500 people. PSU women’s volleyball fans are like that too. Knowledgeable to the point that sometimes you wonder if they are more on top of things than the actual officials.
The Nationals, other wise known as the Big Ten tournament with friends invited, is in Iowa’s back yard, Wells Fargo Arena - Des Moines. As you know the chanpioship will be decided by the team that has the most wrestlers who out perform their seeds.
The 157 and 174 results once again demonstrate that it’s not over until it’s over, i.e., Rob Rohn 2002 win in the finals at 184.
Don’t say that out loud around an Oklahoma Cowboy.
Thanks for the ping. Sort of an Iowa State - Iowa show down.
Good to know you’re surving the winter.
Also guessing that you’ll be busy between wrestling seasons now that Senator Harkin has made his announcement. Please keep me posted on developments in that area.
Looks like Cael got through to a few guys. PSU shut out #8 Illinois 37-0 today.
As to the B1G’s and ncaa’s, I think PSU is set up as a better tournament team than the rest. We’ll see though.
