Skip to comments.A Long Simmering Feud: Penn State - Iowa Wrestling
Posted on 12/21/2013 1:14:34 PM PST by FlJoePa
...Earlier this summer, coaches, wrestlers, and fans in State College and Iowa City were alarmed to learn that the Lions and Hawks were not scheduled to wrestle - an unfortunate side effect to being in a 12- and soon to be 14-team conference. Many pointed to last year's awesome dual at Carver Hawkeye Arena, and wondered, with Olympic wrestling still fighting for its life, how could the Big Ten - the nation's premier wrestling conference - let this happen? Tom Brands and Cael Sanderson got it figured out, of course. And so for the first time since 1992, Penn State and Iowa will wrestle a non-conference dual at CHA.
This one won't count in the conference standings. But no one cares. And Penn Staters aren't the only ones eager to see the showdown this Saturday night (broadcast live on BTN at 9pmET; quote pulled from Hawk Talk):
"We can start looking ahead now," said Iowa's 133-lber, Tony Ramos, immediately after coming off the mat against Buffalo last Thursday. "There are some guys still wrestling but Im done. I can start looking ahead. Its real big."
"You dont look ahead in sports or life, but now were here," Brands said last Thursday after the Buffalo dual. "Lets get ready for now and lets get ready for Penn State."
The party's about to begin. It's been building every year since 1982. With the two teams splitting the last six national championships, 3 each, this simmering feud feels like it's ready to boil over.

I would rather watch the hotties in spandex shorts and ponytails rather than sweaty dudes groping each other LOL!
Beat ped state
I’d love to see you say that to David Taylor’s or Ed Ruth’s face. That would be really fun to watch.
Go Hawkeyes! I’ll be flying from SF to Iowa City on Monday, great to be back for a few days.
Does Ped State have violent wrestlers?
And that's something you sanction?
(Oh ya mean THE Joe Paterno, whose statue was torn out of pure shame by Ped State administrators? That JoePa? When that happened on that given day, what were you sucking?)
Yes, beat Ped State. Why do these losers keep posing these bread and circus sports articles here on a political forum? Who cares. And of all schools to root for why root for the one that was involved in the cover-up of homosexual assaults on underprivileged children?
My wrestling coach had been a wrestler for Iowa. Those guys are SERIOUS about wrestling.
Since this thread was already hijacked by a noted jackass, here's some breaking news on the PSU front: There was a video released yesterday (to zero media fanfare of course) where Graham Spanier is interviewed by a media putz. The interview occured in 2012 and was shelved due to the legal implications of cynthia baldwin's involvement in the grand jury proceedings.
You wouldn't know who cynthia baldwin is because you know nothing about the case/scandal. You just read headlines and regurgitate what the media tells you is the truth. This forum used to be about the truth, not the media's version of it. You got sucked in.
The University of Indiana sanctioned noted the scheming Kinsey, who openly child sexual abuse in his studies. Other Big 10 universities like Ohio State hands out degrees in gay studies. Why is this perverse conference being promoted in such a way?
Have a great trip. Welcome back.
I grew up in Iowa. Yes, wrestling is huge there!
Wrestling numba One!
Penn State numba Ten!

I just looked up in the right hand corner and what I saw was "General/Chat"
I guess I would have to pose the same question to you, "why do losers such as you continue to click on these threads? And if they're so irrelevant, why do you find it necessary to drop your load?
With that being said, I feel I'm justified in telling you to pick up your crap and drop your load on another thread........In other words, get lost ya loser!
“Why do these losers keep posing these bread and circus sports articles here on a political forum?”
Hmmmm... Upper right hand corner on my screen says “General/Chat”. I have no idea what it says on yours. If it bothers you so much, why are you reading the thread and posting in it?
(How about if I advised Ed Ruth to get a non-drinking partner when this Penn State athlete goes drinking & gets 3x the amount of legal liquor in his system...Is this the typical athlete you glorify?)
