    Whizzer-Origin of name?

    I actually know the answer to this. Back when we were building the railroads in the USA, guys would ride the cars out to where they needed to keep working. There were no bathrooms in the trains. When they would have to "take a whizz" they would hang on to a rail and piss off the side. They called this rail a "whizzer rail" and would overhook it with one arm and use the other to control their member. Lots of these dudes wrestled for fun in their off time and would compete with each other after work. The overhook from standing looked like guys hanging on the whizzer rail, so the move got named a whizzer. If anyone knows why or how the term "chancery" came about, I would be curious to know that.

    Suriano wrestles tight in big matches trying to over power his opponents. For all the hype, the guy is passive in big matches. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

    Vak - thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We are watching entertainment people. Too many people on these boards have their lives so freakin wrapped up in entertainment. It’s sport people! Relax and get off these boards ... go do something a bit more productive!! Come back and appreciate the sport and the entertainment it provides. Cheer on your team and freakin have a good time with your other fans. As opposed to jumping at any opportunity to be enraged, cry foul, or find ways to insult and demean. Lighten up!!

    Here's my take on Nick from Jersey guy who's watched in person his HS career and now the last 2 years of matches at RU -I wish Nick the best and hope he is a NC but wouldn't bet on it because... -Don't think he has the deep belief and conviction that he's the best. He's a head case. The drama that's been part of his career supports this -He's not a complete wrestler (technique wise) as many have discussed. And you need to be when you wrestle the top, top guys because they will be. -I think if he stayed at PSU he would've been more 'complete' by now. DeSanto at IA has showed progress because of better coaching and better competition in the room all week. -Too much pressure on him. He became famous and had the target on his back BEFORE he AA'd or made a mark. And this is the worst for a young kid. -A positive for him going into the post season is he's taken the losses, he's not the man anymore and now he can do the hunting and have a payback, chip on his shoulder mental approach, be pissed off and prove everyone wrong. But he needs to work on and improve his technique and head game in the coming weeks to do so. Ashnault on the other hand has upped his game and has a better mental approach and why he's crushing it and stands a very high chance to be a NC. He's now better on his feet and mentally he's wrestling care free. He use to wrestle with the target on his back and lost his big matches to Jack, Heil and the like. No more of that for Ash. Suriano needs to to be like Ashnault. This is what I'd be telling him if I was his coach.

    I'll play... 125: Lee WBF Schnupp: 6-0 Iowa 133: RBY Dec. Desanto: 6-3 Iowa Note: Call me whatever you want, by RBY is improving significantly, within the current season. Desanto is the favorite on paper, but after seeing RBY win the match against Pletcher, which was very methodical, poised, and athletic, I'm convinced that he's not be discounted. 141: Lee Mdec. Murin: 7-6 PSU 149: UPSET ALERT: Berge dec. Lugo: 10-6 PSU Note: After seeing Sasso (tOSU's true freshman BACKUP) beat Lugo, it's not outside the realm of possibilities that Berge wins this one. 157: Nolf MDec Young: 14-6 PSU Note: Young is a "go'er" and I think can physically "hang" with Nolf. Then... Nolf turns sadistic and really cranks it on him. Still a major, but it will feel like Tech. 165: UPSET ALERT (if you can call it that): Marinelli dec. Joseph: 14-9 PSU Note: I'm on the Bull's Bandwagon this year. That's it. Marinelli has showed very little in terms of overall weaknesses. Joseph has shown some vulnerabilities against the Top 5 calibre guys. 174: Hall MDec. Bowman?: 18-9 PSU Note: I could see Hall pinning Bowman too. 184: Shak dec. Wilcke: 21-9 PSU Note: I think Wilcke is ultra stingy and Shak hasn't wrestled in a while. I think Shak could put up the points, or the cradle, but if wrestled this weekend, I see it as "Just" a decision. 197: Nickal WBF Warner: 27-9 PSU Note: I think Nickal enjoys "toying" with lesser opponents, and there will be a lot of hype about this particular match. I see Bo absolutely going "sadistically Nolf" on Warner, and crunching him like he did Moore. HWT: Cassar Mdec. Stoll: 31-9 Note: Stoll stands no chance against Cassar's athleticism. With the bum knee, Cassar blast doubles his way over and over.

    He's a straight on wrestler with little creativity. If he can't bully his way through a hand fight, he struggles. Against guys with a higher wrestling IQ and more experience he will struggle to score on them. He also is limited in his ability to defend against the better guys that can actually get in on his legs while seasoned freestylers can negotiate traditionally tough positions. In other words.....he has a low ceiling for improvement.

    in chancery 1. Literally, in a court of chancery, which is the Lord Chancellor's court (in the UK) or a court of equity (in the US). I'm in chancery today, waiting for the decision in our case to be announced. 2. Faced with a hopeless or challenging situation. I'm in chancery here, trying to fix my car on the side of the road with no clue what to do! The Head Chancery as taught by George Hackenschmidt in The Complete Science of Wrestling: "On coming to head-holds and breaking suddenly from them, it frequently happens that one may offer a waist, or leg, or even a double leg-hold to a rushing adversary; practically any opening which may tempt such an opponent to come in quickly with his head and arms down, when by a quick movement of the body and arm the offered hold may be withdrawn slightly and the opponent's head trapped in chancery by throwing either arm round his neck from above." Being put in chancery by Hackenschmidt sounds like being faced with a hopeless or challenging situation. Hence, the origin of the term. (At least that's my theory - and I'm sticking to it until a better one comes along.)

    Oklahoma looking much better

    It is still early in Roselli’s tenure, but we as fans are impatient and want results quickly, like what we are seeing at ISU and Wisconsin. Worth noting that most teams take longer (Cornell, Rutgers, SDSU, Campbell, etc) anyways...here are the results from the Fresno State dual. It was actually a pretty fun one to watch I will say Fresno State didn’t look good overall even though they were at home. Even AJ nevills , who got the pin, was down 4-0 early 125: Christian Moody (OU) Fall 3:30 Jeremy Trinh (Fresno State)133: Gary Joint (Fresno State) Dec. 2-0 Anthony Madrigal (OU)141: No. 18 Dom Demas (OU) Tech fall 19-4 (6:54) Chris Deloza (Fresno State)149: Davion Jeffries (OU) Dec. 5-3 No. 17 Khristian Olivas (Fresno State) 157: Justin Thomas (OU) Dec. 6-2 No. 19 Jacob Wright (Fresno State)165: Isaiah Hokit (Fresno State) Dec. 3-0 Jeremy Thomas (OU)174: Anthony Mantanona (OU) Fall 5:59 Dominick Kincaid (Fresno State) 184: Jackson Hemaeur (Fresno State) Maj. Dec. 9-1 Kayne MacCallum (OU)197: Jake Woodley (OU) Dec. 3-1 No. 14 Josh Hokit (Fresno State)HWT: AJ Nevills (Fresno State) Fall 3:30 Jake Boyd (OU) They pulled off 3 upsets against 3 ranked wrestlers. Going j to next week I expect OU to have at least 3 if not 4 ranked guys. Demas - on a bit of a slide but is the best chance OU has at an AA Jeffries - so much potential. Will he take advantage of his final chance? A solid ranked win this late in the season is positive. Thomas - has some weird losses but is likely to qualify. Good showing Woodley - freshman that was highly touted. He expects himself to AA. This is the weight to do it. He has the ability and I’m confident he will AA eventually. His season hasn’t been great but I actually think he is the second most likely to AA.

    PSU vs Iowa (if they wrestled in 2019)

    Haha drives me nuts that fans will post stuff like that. Sasso has been an absolute monster this year and would almost certainly place, but he's only a "freshman BACKUP." That's like piling on Brian Realbuto for losing to Penn State's "freshman backup" (Nolf) back in the day. Also Lugo had that match won, but kept shooting and put himself in danger against Sasso who is one of the best counter wrestlers in the country. Gave up two counter takedowns late to lose.

    Berge is 5 spots higher than Lugo in the last Coaches Ranking. Lugo has a 2-4 record vs common opponents while Berge is 3-2 vs. common opponents with 1 of the 2 losses being the match where he was up 3 TD's to 0 before he gassed out vs. Cole Martin. This is why I think that as long as he doesn't gas he probably beats Lugo with solid positioning and a couple well timed converted shots.

    Mizzou...overrated yet again?

    Very interesting. Kent State had one guy, Connell, have the tournament of his life and he carries the whole Kent team into the top 5 in the plus column. Probably the same applies to Princeton with Kolodzik and Lock with their finalist--one man show carrying the program. The only team in the top five "plusses" with numerous point scorers (more than 2, to my knowledge--could be wrong) is Nebraska. Two of the very best teams in college wrestling, PSU and OSU, make the "worst" five in the negative column. Toss in Mizzou, a top 5-8 team year to year of recent. Were the members of these teams overrated or undeserving of their seeds? Did the favorable seeding give them some kind of advantage in the actual points they did accumulate? Were the seeds deserved and the team had subpar performances? Penn State winning it all and making the bottom five deserves some interpretive analysis.

    141 seeds at Big Tens

    Here is Regularfan's reasoning about the seeds (from BWI forum). 141 lbs (projecting 9 qualifiers so will seed to 14 if that holds)1. Nick Lee (Penn State) (23-1, 7-1 Big 10 Starters) – Call this my bold prediction but Lee is the highest ranked in the coaches release of the top three and suffered his only loss in OT. I also think some coaches will punish Carr for missing the last dual and so Lee will get either #1 or #2 votes and Carr will get #1 or #3 votes (behind McKenna) to be the difference2. Mike Carr (Illinois) (11-2, 6-0 Big 10 Starters) – Undefeated I think he will split #1 and #3 votes3. Joey McKenna (Ohio State) (16-1, 5-1 Big 10 Starters) – higher than Carr in the coaches poll by two spots but he will split #2 and #3 votes from coaches and end up hitting Carr in semis (if my prediction holds)4. Tristan Moran (Wisconsin) (19-6, 5-2 Big 10 Starters) – Lost to McKenna, Carr, beat Lee and pinned McKee5. Mitch McKee (Minnesota) (15-3, 7-2 Big 10 Starters) – Beat everybody below (and a lot of them), McKee and Storr are very close but McKee has been slightly more dominant vs. common opponents6. Kanen Storr (Michigan) (20-4, 6-3 Big 10 Starters) – Storr could very easily be 5 and did have a higher coaches rank than both Moran and McKee but I just see him as #67. Max Murin (Iowa) (12-5, 5-3 Big 10 Starters) – has the weird loss by fall against Luigs but has been everybody else below him8. Chad Red (Nebraska) (15-10, 1-5 Big 10 Starters) – wrestled a lot of the top guys, did beat Lipari who beat Limmex (who I am projecting to get a bid)9. Peter Lipari (Rutgers) (9-10, 2-6 Big 10 Starters) – interesting to me because I don’t have Lipari qualifying one of the 9 bids but he did beat Limmex in overtime10. Nate Limmex (Purdue) (16-12, 2-6 Big 10 Starters) – better overall ranking than Lipari and in the coaches rank (which Lipari was not) but he lost the head-to-head, seeded 10th even though I have him qualifying the ninth and final bid11. Kyle Luigs (Indiana) (13-14, 1-4 Big 10 Starters) – Pinned Murin but lost to Limmex, could also be 1212. Austin Eicher (Michigan State) (13-11, 1-4 Big 10 Starters) – beat McKenna for only conference win13. Danny Bertoni (Maryland) (13-12, 0-4 Big 10 Starters) – winning record overall was difference to me although he was a backup doing opens for some of the year14. Alec McKenna (Northwestern) (8-10, 0-7 Big 10 Starters) – was the man all year long for Northwestern, will coaches reward that with 13 seed over Bertoni?

    Where is he providing adjustments? Providing adjustments would be calling the number of the AD provided by some guy with his panties in a twist. What he did is comment on a message board. Lucky for you as a Mizzou fan Brian Smith has a little thicker skin than you do and doesn't pick message board fights every time some nobody suggests he's less than perfect.

    That wasn't the Illinois starter, Duncan. Carr was out Friday against Northwestern too. Someone on the Illinois board said Carr was away from the team coughing into his shirt throughout that dual. Last night an Indiana recruit from Illinois, Eddie Bolivar, won a state championship in a bracket that had 3 Illini commits, including a state champ from last year. I think with Heffernan's new additions to the coaching staff of Mike Poeta and Bryan Medlin, they've start getting more in-state recruits and Heffernan holds on for a couple more years. However, 42 Illinois state champs this year and only one is going to U of I.

    Missouri - '18/'19

    COLUMBIA, Mo. – In front of a program-record crowd of 4,721 at the Hearnes Center, fifth-ranked Mizzou Wrestling dropped a hard-fought, 19-15, decision against former Big 12 rival, No. 2 Oklahoma State Saturday (Feb. 16). The loss snapped Mizzou's 35-dual winning streak, which dated back to the 2016-17 season. It feel just two duals shy of the all-time program record winning streak of 37 duals. The historic dual began with recognizing Tiger Style seniors John Ereneste, Daniel Lewis and Nick Nasenbury, each of whom have helped propel the Tigers as one of the nation's most successful programs throughout the last four years. After dropping the first two bouts, the Tigers found the momentum after redshirt junior Jaydin Eierman earned his 13th fall of the season, taking down No. 13 Kaid Brock and cutting the Pokes' lead to 7-6 through three bouts. He needed just 3:48 to tally his team-leading 13th pin. At 149 pounds, true freshman Brock Maullercontinued his dominant initial campaign (25-1) by upsetting No. 5 Kaden Gfeller in a 9-4 decision, giving Mizzou a 9-7 lead, its first of the afternoon. His 25 wins rank second all-time amongst true freshman in the program, only behind Mizzou legend J'den Cox, who had 38. Columbia native Jarrett Jacques extended Mizzou's lead to 12-7 in the 157-pound, as he outlasted Wyatt Sheets and continued to prove his worth as a true freshman under head coach Brian Smith, earning his 22nd win of the campaign. At 174, reigning MAC Wrestler of the Week Lewis was riding an 11-match winning streak heading into Saturday's dual, one week removed from pinning the defending national champion Zahid Valencia at Arizona State. He comfortably found his way to a 7-0 decision over No. 6 Joe Smith, keeping Mizzou's lead at five heading into the final three bouts. Coming up short in the 184 and 197, the Cowboys regained a one-point lead on Mizzou heading into a top-25 heavyweight showdown between No. 16 Zach Elam and No. 2 Derek White. A perfect culmination to a very even dual from start to finish, White and Elam went into a sudden victory period where the Pokes emerged victorious with a takedown just 31 seconds into the frame, ending Missouri's 35 match winning streak. Match Notes: Mizzou Wrestling's last loss on Senior Day was to Oklahoma State in 2009 when the Tigers fell to the Cowboys 24-9. The Tigers' all-time record against the Cowboys is 7-42-1 and are 2-3 in the last five meetings against the former Big Eight rival. Coach Smith is 7-18-1 against OSU. Jaydin Eierman pinned No. 13 Kaid Brock to improve to 13 total falls this season. He is three falls away from beating his own season high and breaking into the top-10 Mizzou falls in a season. Brock Mauller improves to 25-1 on the season. This is the most single-season wins for a true freshman at Mizzou since J'den Cox, who tallied 38 wins in the 2013-14 season. This match broke the Mizzou Wrestling all-time attendance record with 4,721 fans in attendance. The previous record was 2,772. Results 125 Pounds – Dack Punke (9-7) vs. #4 Nick Piccininni – L, Major Decision (11-2, 4:10 RT) | 0-4 133 Pounds – #10 John Erneste (14-4) vs. #2 Daton Fix – L, 9-2 (1:45 RT) | 0-7 141 Pounds – #3 Jaydin Eierman (19-3) vs. #13 Kaid Brock – W, Fall (3:48) | 6-7 149 Pounds – #7 Brock Mauller (25-1) vs. #5 Kdaen Gfeller – W, 10-4 | 9-7 157 Pounds – #13 Jarrett Jacques (22-6) vs. Wyatt Sheets – W, 6-5 | 12-7 165 Pounds – #13 Connor Flynn (16-6) vs. #10 Chandler Rogers – L, 7-5 (1:53 RT) | 12-10 174 Pounds – #2 Daniel Lewis (20-1) vs. #6 Joe Smith – W, 7-0 (3:01 RT) | 15-10 184 Pounds – #16 Dylan Wisman (13-6) vs. #8 Jacobe Smith – L, 7-3 | 15-13 197 Pounds – #16 Wyatt Koelling (17-8) vs. #6 Preston Weigel – L, 4-1 (2:57 RT) | 15-16 285 Pounds – #19 Zach Elam (19-6) vs. #2 Derek White – L, 3-1 (0:32 SV1) 19-15 Mizzou will be back in action next Sunday as it faces another old Big Eight rival in Iowa State.

    Man people are going to say Suriano is overrated, regressed, etc. still think he is fairly likely to win ncaas. All 3 losses are matches he can get back. His cardio and lack of a weight cut will help at NCAAs too. Wish he had gone his freshman year. He would get so much more respect as I think he would’ve won. Now, I’m the deepest weight, he is right in the mix but could place 3rd even if he wrestles his best. I hope he pulls it off. Micic is damn good. I think Suriano beats Desanto and faces micic again in the Big10 finals. Whoever wins that will most likely Fix in the ncaa finals (if seeding goes as I think it will) love 133 this year. So much talent and effort by these top guys. Then you have RBY, Pletcher, Gomez, Phillipi all of whom could what the top 3 on the right day.
