Iowa - There’s certainly a lot going on in Iowa City. That much can’t be denied. Whether you’re talking about some of the things yet to be decided (NCAA decisions on possible gambling violations mostly), or things yet to be seen (incoming freshmen or transfers and their immediate impact), there will certainly be a lot of eyes on Iowa. That’s usually the case, and usually, it goes pretty well for the Hawkeyes. This year though I feel like there are going to be a lot more haters than normal. Sad to say haters, but I feel like Brands and Co. thrive off of your negative vibes. They get stronger with every negative thought about Iowa, and they are masters at motivating their athletes when it’s them against the world. But that all seems too negative. Let’s focus on the positives. This group returns an NCAA finalist, some All-American caliber talent, and brought in a couple podium guys as well. Not to mention a couple blue-chip recruits to slide in as well. Per usual, the depth at Iowa is wild and I expect their talent to continue to develop. This staff gets the best out of their talent, which generally seems to be why talent goes there. All that plus Carver-Hawkeye always adds an extra element of chaos to their duals. For every Iowa hater, there is an Iowa Wrestling superfan who already has season tickets to every home dual, and has had season tickets for the last 20+ years. There’s a lot to get to with this squad, so let’s get to it.
