Never had a doubt, he wrestled a great strategic match. Another great team performance, to bad about Joseph but a motivator for Nationals. As I stated earlier the seeding of Carr ahead of Lee was pathetic, the big ten better re-evaluate their priorities, Lee and Mckenna should have met in the finals, no logic could put Carr ahead of the second seeded wrestler in the country, proof is in the pudding. Also a big BS to the Big Ten Network, to not put the match on as scheduled to show the ending of that BB game was disgusting. They should have moved that game somewhere else when the Big 10 championships were starting, its not like many people would have cared.

I would love to agree with you about the basketball game, but basketball will always be the higher priority than wrestling since it's the moneymaker for the channel. Not to mention, the end of an OT game which I believe had seeding implications? Besides, the whole session was on BTN2go, I watched the 125 match live there.

No network ever moves an in-progress game. Ever.

I really like Cassar wrestling to the end there when Steveson had already given up. Welcome to college, kid. We wrestle for 7 minutes here.

I know why, but man that crowd absolutely hated us from start to finish, and this was just the cherry on top. The crowd was going absolutely wild for Cenzo losing, I assume as the fans of 13 teams banded together behind Iowa

I realize a network would never interrupt an on-going game (I saw and remember the Heidi debacle). The finals should be scheduled where this would never happen again. Who really wanted to watch the 125 match after it was decided?  Yes, we are the hated bully on the block and I love it.

285 side note:  White from OSU will move to #1 forcing a rematch between Cassar and Steveson. If their is any justice White should get his turn with Steveson before Cassar gets a rematch.

White wrestled Gable earlier this season and lost 8-2. It's going to be a conundrum for the seeding committee in terms of who gets the 1 or 2 between White and Cassar imo. Gable is basically guaranteed the 3 at this point considering he has a loss and didn't win a conference title while Cassar and White have a loss and won a conference title. My gut is the seeding committee will go 1 - White, 2 - Cassar, 3 - Gable, but I would not be surprised to see Cassar seeded ahead of White even though he lost to him.
