Anybody in the know if Iowa is sending it’s A-team to Junior duals. It’s in 2 weeks in Oklahoma. We could send a pretty salty line up if all the hammers go. Jesuraga, Ayala, Avila, Rathjen, Garvin, Taylor, Naka, Kueter, ect… Disney Duals is around the same time.

Good question. I know a few guys have been pretty active already. Jesuroga has cadet worlds to prep for. It would be a really salty lineup if they were all in.

I feel like Iowa always fields a good team as we almost always place top 8. Rarely do we send our best guys at all weights. I think if we sent all our best guys we would be top 3. I love following Junior Duals. To me it’s better than Fargo.

I don' think you get any weight. Ayala was at 100 for the state Freestyle so he probably will be there for the duals. C Bellis will be at 120.

I heard yesterday that Jesuroga is going. Sure helps the team. I would say it give Iowa an 83% chance of winning it all.

If any of you guys go, I will be there for Freestyle and wearing blue Clic Glasses - the kind that are magnetic and come apart and hang around your neck. Stop and chat if you are there - except for spoons or spooner. One of you scare me, but I can't keep it straight as to which one it is. ;-)

Spoons freaks me out but I bet you’re talking about me. Honestly, all of you freak me out but him more than most.

Weight allowance:

Scratch weight for Greco and must wrestle at least two matches to receive +4 for Freestyle.
Was that way when I coached Jr duals for 4 or 5 years up to my last year in 2017 or so
That is the way it is this year also. I was pretty sure they did not get any weight for Greco. I was not aware that they got the 4 for freestyle if they meet the criteria. Thanks for clearing that up.

How is Morningstar a coach for this? Is there no rule against it?

There have been a lot of complaints about it for the obvious reasons, but this is standard practice across the board. Pretty much every state with a D1 program will have one of those coaches coaching at Fargo/National Team events. Kind of similar to how kids are allowed to train at RTCs.

Wasn’t Carl one of the coaches on the junior world or U23 staff. How is that any different? In fact I’d think being a head coach of a D1 program would be more to complain about.

Yeah, carl has been quite active when he is part of these teams and I don't mean just the coaching aspect.

I was looking at the junior dual Greco/Freestyle line ups on “the predicament” website. We don’t have anyone listed at 100 or 113. It would be a shame if Team Iowa can not get those weights filled.

I think they only are missing guys at Greco. The freestyle team is full.

Yeah, I seen that. Iowa has Dru Ayala and Jesuroga filling 100 and 113 in freestyle. I'm sure there would be some solid kids willing to wrestle on the team iowa junior greco team. You're going to get a bunch of matches. I hope those spots get filled.

I don’t see much of a difference between camps or letting them train at the RTCs. Basketball lets their guys coach the U19 world teams…Dixon from TCU and Haase from Stanford. I believe there is an equitable system set up so UNI, ISU, and Iowa plus other share the coaching duties and Fargo prep sites.
