murin controlled their last match. also vince turk doesn't hit "big moves." he has one move, a double from space, which he doesn't hit successfully on anybody that good. he's an inferior version of murin. tough to score on, physical, but offensively limited. and murin is much better on the mat.My comment was knowing how Murin wrestles which is very sound and the way Turk operates. I just thought it might be a little easier for Turk to hit on a big move. It's hard for guys to score on each other when they go against each other all the time. Do I think Murin is better wrestler, yes. My comment was more about how they match up against each other.
if you actually followed how that 5-4 match went, you'd know it wasn't as close as the score. murin was in total control, rode the tar out of him and then gave up 2 stall points late when the match was in hand. it wasn't that close.I changed my response to just posting the article from hawkcentral.com about how Murin barely edged out Turk in their wrestleoff. 5-4 on a riding point.
if you think there is any chance of vince turk being the starter this year for any reason other than injury (and murin has struggled with injury this year), you're out of your mind. he has ZERO wins over D1 wrestlers this year. the big ten would lose murin's allocation and he would have to steal a spot. it's not happening. probably wishful thinking on your part knowing that he's not as good as murin and it would weaken iowa.
