    1. the PD call I was referring to was the one on Ness’ leg in the 2nd period.

  1. 3rd period
    Get on your defense, Kelly and I don’t say that often.
    (After the carnage) Big move got him! :((((

  2. end of 2nd period
    Ironside yelling for hand control, escape, takedown, reversal, takedown

  3. 1st period
    Kelly gets a TD
    Finally gets it after 3 shots!
    Ness looks tired
    (talks some more)
    Ness could be playing oppossium

  4. 157
    I like that Mike Kelly is on a leg right away
    Kelly scrambles and scoots with Ness and Ness is a scrambler.

  5. (Late TD by Sorensen)
    Ironside- We’ll take it.
    (Iowa clinches the dual, BTW)

  6. 3rd period
    (First Metcalf mention)
    Sorensen keeps that front arm low, you can tell he wrestles Metcalf a lot.
    Sorensen has gone after it just not enough attacks
    Create angles.
    Set a guy up.

    1. watching on btn now, sorensen just did what everyone complains that (young)tsirtsis does to win. am i the only one disappointed by that match?

      thanks vall for additional commentary

  7. 2nd period
    Grace- Sorensen has a good suck-back
    Sorensen has a good Ride.
    Sorensen has so much fwd pressure.
    Iowa bench wants a SW call as MN inches goes OOB
    So much pressure by Sorensen.
    Big Ride by Sorensen.
    Tell you about Sorensen, that kid is strong. Short looks bigger but Sorensen is stronger.

  8. Sorensen just wears people out
    (Didn’t short beat BS this summer?)
    Grace amused that MN fans don’t like SW on their guy.
    MN is good, they hit a lot of dbls

  9. 3rd period
    Grace is amused that MN wants a SW for his two shots
    Ironside wants Jeva to go

  10. 141
    2nd period
    Our favor not giving up a TD in the fist period for Jeva
    Grace- Tom is up – 3 shots for Jeva this period
    Hard time getting through that wall of hands / arms

  11. 133- Great match, even though we lost.
    141- Jeva gets out to slow starts
    Dardanes going hard.
    Grace- expect hard wrestling at MN
    Ironside- except Logan Storely
    Jeva has got to follow up on his shots.
    On Jeva’s stall warning- Brands is questioning how is it a SW when the guys are battling.

  12. 3rd period
    Ankle pick attempt by Dardanes
    According to Ironside if the calls are the same as Gilman’s this isn’t a TD
    Grace thinks it is 50/50
    And they give a TD

  13. 3rd period
    Ironside thought Cory could get backs but almost got RV
    Great job by Clark to fight that off
    He is trying but needs to get his offense.

  14. My comment- I found where I put my national dual ticket, earlier today.

    Cory needs to work the 2 on 1.

  15. Grace mentioned that the National Duals don’t count in B1G seedings (?)

  16. Beautiful finish by Gilman
    Went one way and switched off to another side.

    3rd period
    Grace-Tom reminded Gilman to get back points / fall

  17. 2nd period
    Gilman may have had problems underneath so it surprised Ironside that he didn’t go down.
    Gilman all over Lizak
    He is absolutely tormenting Lizak.

  18. 1st period
    Gilman is tormenting Lizak
    He’s getting some trouble from this MN kid bc he’s long.
    I don’t know how Lizak will hold up after 4 more min of wrestling Gilman.

  19. (unless I type My comment or Grace, everything is Ironside)

    MN guy looks like a HSer
    Starting 6th is different
    He’s got to be champing at the bit.
    Catch and release for TG
    Brands called for the intentional release.

  20. I just peeked in at the guiliotine. The “monkey” comments are out. I love it.

  21. Grace
    If you looked at this on paper, it was supposed to be 9-6 (if the Evans loss) and instead it is 15-3.
    Is pissed off (kind of smiling through the radio when he said that) that we missed bonus points in 184 and Hwt and the win vs Schiller. Never satisfied.
    Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely happy right now, esp with Nick Moore. Big Fall for Moore, Biggest of his career. That’s cool for Nick more.

  22. Fun thought.
    These must be new or blind Gopher Fans (or filled with amnesia) if they are boing lack of action in the HWT match.

  23. 2nd period
    Bobby riding and the MN bench wants stalling
    There is not stalling there.
    Great shot by Bobby
    Bobby has 1:19 of RT
    Ironside- I’d like to see him go and get the Major
    Grace- Maybe he can turn him
    Ironside- He hasn’t turned him all day. I’d like to see him go and get a bunch of TD
    Kroellis first shot of the match was a bad one but Bobby didn’t go around.
    Bobby’s face tells Ironside that he doesn’t want to take any more shots.
    Mark doesn’t like it.

  24. Tom Brands very upset with the RT people
    (I can see him pointing on TV)
    (They may be arguing over 2 seconds- jeez just wrestle!)
    This is the side official’s call.
    Tom told the side ref- “That’s your job”
    Imagine being an official in this environment.
    Gave Iowa 2 seconds back

  25. Tellford-1st period
    My comment- I read that this is the first MN wrestler that Bobby will wrestle that isn’t named Nelson.

    C’mon Bobby T.
    Right in the middle tonight usually he wrestles at the end.
    Man, that would have been good for Burak.
    Nice job pulling him back into the center of the mat
    After the TD
    MN is crawling for the edge

  26. Ironside- Great shot at the end by Schiller.
    Caught Burak a little relaxed.
    Really good shot by Schiller Good heads up westling.

  27. Burak My comment not Ironside.
    I thought he looked better against Schiller than every before – more aggressive. And I agree with Ironside, he needs to commit to the shot. Tough loss.

  28. 3rd period
    Burak has to commit to the shot.
    He’s there
    He looks good
    He’s taking shots and backing out at the same time.

  29. 2nd period Burak
    A good shot and didn’t finish.
    May have surprised himself on the shot.

  30. Ironside on Burak
    Ironside Not sure why we are ranked higher at this weight
    “well, Schiller has lost twice”
    Ironside – doesn’t matter.
    Pretty darn full at the barn
    (BTW there is only about a 4 second delay btw video and radio)

  31. Brooks
    Ironside wanted two more TD with a min left.
    Wanted Brooks to go.
    Wasn’t sure about the 3rd TD at the end of the second period.
    A guy up in the crowd in the upper deck yelled, “Eat sh#t, Brands”
    Ironside likes it.
