How I stopped worrying and caring about basketball and learned to HOLY CRAP DAVID TAYLOR JUST KILLED THAT GUY

With all due respect to my esteemed friend Joe from Boalsburg in the glorious shadow of the lofty mountain of the Nittany Lion, one should not care about basketball just because Penn State sucks at basketball. One should learn to stop caring about basketball because it's silly and vastly inferior to wrestling.

Why?

Reason 1: The rules of wrestling are not that difficult to comprehend and the refs usually enforce them properly. Just watch a match on the BTN sometime. They'll explain the scoring and whatnot to you, they'll also explain the stall warning (I vote the stall warning as the greatest rule for the prevention of jackwagoniness in any sport), and there won't be any crap with the refs calling "fouls" on people for touching other people (Read: Jared Sullinger) a little too hard.

Reason 2: As opposed to basketball, wrestlers are encouraged to physically dominate their opponent and basically tackle them.

Reason 3: Penn State wrestles where the basketball team should used to play.

Reason 4: Penn State is awesome already.

Reason 5: Seriously, David Taylor just killed some guy.

Reason 6: Why are you still reading this? Go find some PSU wrestling highlights on YouTube to watch and make sure you're here for the BEAT IOWA open thread in a week.
