    Wasn’t there a rumor he was looking to transfer out of there and this would be a way to bulk up for next year and save eligibility?

    Can’t remember who said it or what thread it was in but didn’t someone mention the growth of Gary steen and maybe a high prized recruit? Well if so he just committed to Pittsburgh.

    Word around Ames is he likes to party and skip practice.

    Without knowing of anything behind the scenes, I just find it very difficult to think Gomez can make it down to 133 for next season. Without factoring in the concussion ramifications, does anyone really think he's going to magically change his training regimen/diet... including weight control?

    Everyone at ISU knew where he needed to slot into the lineup since the 2019 Nattys. Rumor has it he was in the high 60s. 35 lbs is a lot to lose if you weigh 200 lbs. As a percentage of 170 lbs... that's ridiculous.

    And expecting Parker/Degen/Carr to go up isn't fair to those three and likely makes ISU weaker. The only way I see to make it work is if Carr can go 165 and Gomez goes 157.

    This saga has "transfer portal" written all over it. This isn't on the staff.

    Gomez ain’t making 133 again.

    Concussion issues are legit.

    Have my doubts about him finishing any season going forward.

    The Degen injury could also be a year ending type of thing if what his sister is claimed to have said is true.

    Gomez ain’t making 133 again. Perhaps, but I would bet 141 next year.

    Concussion issues are legit. Truth.

    Have my doubts about him finishing any season going forward. It's a concern to be sure

    I am purposefully trying to be that guy right now. Gomez isn’t a millennial, he is Gen Z.

    So if there's already a that guy and an other guy, what guy am I?

    After watching The Matrix last night, I'm really questioning my existence today.

    If that is true, he could very well never win a title, imo.

    In hindsight, it would’ve been real interesting to see what a TnT trained Austin Gomez would’ve looked like... Minus the concussions of course.

    Did he pin RBY with one arm behind his back? Did Cael throw a chair?
