  1. I think Labriola is a much tougher match up, stylistically, than Massa.
  2. Not much movement that I can see
  3. Where is O'Toole going to slide in? Undefeated but no great wins. If Lewis doesn't win his conference, O'Toole may jump him. But if Mekhi doesn't win his conference, he is likely not the bad matchup he was in 2019. It's a good question, I have no idea. Far away from Marinelli, hopefully for me. :) Hopefully the 10 or the 13 seed. Truthfully, though, he might go into 9, setting Marinelli up with another tough quarter as the 1 seed against a red-hot, highly skilled freshman.
  4. No chance, IMO, no matter what happens this weekend.
  5. Take it back. I never do good posts. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. I write all my own material. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. I love Eierman. Just being realistic. I've been clear that I think Eierman beats Rivera who beats Lee who beats Eierman, stylistically. He's got two elite guys in his weight, so he's lower on this list. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. You're a dumb post. It was a joke. A twist on the "Cowboy Bulk Job" from Flo et al.
  9. 1. Spencer Lee 2. Aaron Brooks 3. Alex Marinelli 4. Ryan Deakin 5. Gable Steveson 6. Sammy Sasso 7. Michael Kemerer 8. Roman Bravo-Young 9. Jaydin Eierman 10. Eric Schultz
  10. I would agree, but he did have the positive COVID test, and we've seen athletes come back at less than 100%.
  11. Hone was apparently injured. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

  13. That's the thing. Wentzel could end up being a fistfight. That tends to favor Marinelli, but if Wentzel can keep it close and try to steal it late... Honestly, that's what happened against Mekhi, too. Marinelli was winning the handfighting and in deep multiple times, but obviously that's only half the battle with a healthy Mekhi. It was 1-1 with 30 seconds late, and Mekhi hit a reshot. Just watched it back, and Marinelli should have just gone out of bounds, instead he tried to fight back in and ended up in a scramble, where he is definitely not strong.
  14. That's a tough one. Wentzel presents problems from top, but Marinelli seems to have figured out better top wrestlers like Wick (in terms of winning the match, not in terms of escaping necessarily). It could go like that. Marinelli gets takedowns on everybody. I think Marinelli beats both. If forced to pick one, I'd rather see Valencia, I guess, because he has a history of wilting under physical pressure.
  15. Possibly. It will depend on the matrix and what they do with it this year. I don't believe RPI will be part of it, but Coaches Rankings will, and I think it will be weighed more heavily given the circumstances. I had forgotten, though, that Braunagel has the quality win over Ethan Smith. Common opponents will be out due to the B1G competition rules. In summary, you may be right. I think Ethan Smith beats Braunagel this time though, rendering it moot. But, what do I know?
  16. Extremely unlikely. Could be a quarter, though. I would bet it's not, I think Lewis is more likely to be 6 or 7. Obviously that depends on Marinelli winning B1Gs. Presuming Marinelli and Wittlake take care of business at their conferences, I would guess the seeds are: 1. Marinelli 2. WIttlake 3. Valencia/Wentzel 4. Valencia/Wentzel 5. Shane Griffith 6. Hartman/Lewis 7. Hartman/Lewis 8. Smith/Braunagel winner
  17. It's not a narrative on my end. I didn't bring it up and falsely claim that people were disregarding Marinelli's draw, and then argue against it. Somebody literally brought it up, and I responded. Again, that's how message boards work. You are creating this conversation where people are constantly dredging up the Marinelli draw and claiming it somehow obviates Marinelli not having a championship, and then knocking down that argument. You are creating the argument you are fighting against. I am not.
  18. Every time you're wrong, you try to shift the conversation somewhere else. I didn't point out Marinelli's draw or complain about it. I responded, in 6 sentences to a specific point.
  19. You are the one pointing out the length of the thread. I didn't tell you not to respond. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  20. Again, yes, that's how message boards work. Somebody says something (Housebuye), other people respond (me, Uncle Bernard, etc.) Other people respond to the response (you, Ionel, etc.) It wouldn't be pages and pages if you just didn't respond. And again, there is nobody using it as some excuse or claiming it cost Marinelli a national championship. The only time anything like that gets mentioned, it's you claiming people are saying it and then "defeating" the argument you have created in your head.
  21. It wasn't brought up by me or any Iowa fan. It was brought up by an Ohio State fan and this claim about "excuse-making" is just some weird narrative you've concocted.
  22. Yes, that is how message boards work. People respond to one another. Marinelli got a tough draw. Nobody is saying that should retroactively be given the 2019 NCAA title because of it, except for the strawman you've set up about it.
  23. Look at this deep dive! Look at how triggered! Six sentences of raw emotion!
