  1. Each of these two teams has a # 1 ranked wrestler. # 1 ranked Zahid Valencia at 184 lbs for Arizona State and # 1 ranked Kollin Moore at 197 lbs for Ohio State.
  2. When I wrote this van der Merwe was the # 2 seed at 149 lbs but I looked yesterday and this morning, and for reasons unknown to me, he apparently was bumped up to the # 1 seed at 149 lbs. I can't recall who WAS the # 1 seed at 149 lbs on the pre-seeds - but it wasn't van der Merwe. Require van der Merwe was defeated 4-3 by the # 8 seed (Milner of Appalachian State) in the quarterfinals.
  3. WrestleStat dual comparison projects Arizona State wins this dual 22-13 Arizona State vs. Ohio State dual projection According to Arizona State's schedule this will be on Fox Sports1 - scheduled for 5 p.m. Mtn Time next Monday. (7 p.m. Eastern - 4 p.m. Pacific)
  4. I see Stanford has five wrestlers in the pre-seeds included one as the # 1 seed and two more as the # 2 seed at their respective weight classes. 125 lbs - Gabe Townsell # 4 seed 141 lbs - Real Woods - # 3 seed 149 lbs - Require van der Merwe - # 2 seed 165 lbs - Shane Griffith - # 1 seed 197 lbs - Nathan Traxler - # 2 seed
  5. I can relate. Seems like Traxler has been there for at least four years already. But yes, he's listed on their roster as a RS Junior this season.
  6. By comparison the 2020-2021 Stanford lineup appears (to me) to have no "holes" at all. They seem to have recruited very wisely of late. 2020-2021 Stanford PROBABLE lineup 125 - Jackson DiSario - True So. and Logan Ashton - RS Fr. and Kyle Rowan - True Fr. 133 - Dalton Young - RS Jr. and Luciano Arroyo - RS Fr. and Jason Miranda - True Fr. 141 - Real Woods - RS So. and Fabian Santillan - RS Fr. 149 - Requir van der Merwe - RS Sr. and Jaden Abas - RS Fr. 157 - Tyler Eischens - RS So. and Dawson Sihavong - RS Fr. and Charlie Darracott - True Fr. 165 - Shane Griffith - RS So. 174 - Jared Hill - RS Sr. and Foster Karmon - RS Jr. 184 - Nick Addison - True So. and Judah Duhm - RS Jr. 197 - Nathan Traxler - RS Sr. and Nick Stemmet - True Fr. and Marshall Kools - True Fr. 285 - Haydn Maley - RS Jr. and Seamus O'Malley - RS Fr. and Peter Ming - True Fr.
  7. Anthony Valencia should be back next season at 174 lbs. Unless he drops back down to 165. to replace Shields. Anthony is listed as a RS Junior this season - even tho this is his 5th year at ASU.
  8. Looking at Arizona State's roster this season and it appears there are three holes in their lineup for next season. ASU has five Seniors in their starting lineup this season and in the case of two of those five there are probable replacements for those Seniors for the 2020-2021 season. Namely Tanner Hall at 285 lbs being replaced by Cohlton Schultz and Josh Kramer being replaced by Josiah Kline (who is being redshirted this season) or current true freshmen Julian Chlebove or Cleveland Belton. But there does not appear to be anyone likely to replace Josh Maruca (149), Josh Shields (165) and Zahid Valenzia (184) - unless Zane Coleman is the likely replacement for Zahid. Yet Coleman, as far as I can tell, hasn't competed once this season. And it also appears that ASU has no signed recruits for next season either. The only verbal commits I see for ASU are Juniors in H.S. this season and won't be at ASU until the 2021-2022 season. So what's ASU doing to fill these three spots in their lineup for 2020-2021?
  9. Is one were to win a large lottery such as Powerball or Mega Millions and the winning amount is let's say 300 million (to keep the math simple) AND one opts for the annuity payout option that would mean the winner would receive 30 payments of roughly six million dollars per year AFTER taxes (basically) in 30 payments over 29 years. With that as the base premise then one could divert as little as $500,000 to up to $ 1 million PER YEAR to fund a Div. I NCAA college wrestling program. The funds would have to be diverted into a trust fund of course but even after diverting as much as $ 1 million per year the lottery winner would still be receiving $5 million per year for 29 years (and 30 payments total). With that having been said the choice for me would be very simple. I'd fund the return of the Boise State wrestling program. Of course that would not be a simple proposition after the CRAP that former Boise State school President Bob (let's just LIE to them) Kustra pulled here a few years ago.
  10. Saying that I said something which I did not say, i.e., "it only looks at common opponents".........................is about as ignorant as can be.
  11. Then he was about as "clear" as mud about that then.
  12. According to the WrestleStat projections I saw - when I did a dual comparison between ASU and OSU - ASU is projected to win 6 of the 10 matches. However one of the projected wins for OSU is # 48 ranked Elijah Cleary over # 21 ranked Jacori Teemer. According to WrestleStat Cleary wins that match 6-5 over Teemer - based on ONE common opponent that both of them defeated. Teemer beat Stanford's Tyler Eischen last March 3-2 at the National Collegiate Open tournament and Cleary was taken to overtime against Eischen last month before winning 10-8 in Sudden Victory overtime # 1 during the dual between Ohio State and Stanford.
  13. Nickal???? Nobody with that name on either team.
  14. I just found it odd that both Kramer and Norfleet BOTH lost their last match at the Vegas tournament to a wrestler from Ohio State and they then BOTH forfeited their subsequently scheduled match after losing to their Ohio State opponent. And now their next scheduled event is a dual against Ohio State.
  15. Thanks for the feedback guys. I appreciate it. Good to know.
  16. I noticed that two of Arizona State's starters forfeited out of the Cliff Keen tournament last weekend in Vegas. That being Josh Kramer at 133 lbs and Kordell Norfleet at 197 lbs. Kramer lost his opening round match in SV OT (8-6) to Dylan Koontz of Ohio State and then Medically Forfeited his next match. Norfleet won his first round match 9-8 over Greg Bulsak of Clarion and he then lost 5-3 to # 1 ranked Kollin Moore of Ohio State. Then he too Medically Forfeited his 3rd match. My question is how seriously were these two injured last weekend? I realize that ASU doesn't compete again for about 1 month - before taking on Ohio State on Jan. 6th. Just curious if those two will be back in the lineup for ASU for that match vs. Ohio State. And if Kramer can't compete then who is likely to replace him. I know Josiah Kline is being redshirted this season so I would have to think if Kramer can't go it would have to be True Freshmen Julian Chlebove or Cleveland Belton who would replace him in the lineup.
  17. Tell me.........is it still considered an upset when Kyle Conel loses another match? So far this season Conel has lost to guys who were ranked as follows on WrestleStat: # 30 ranked Aaron Bolo of Central Michigan (Conel lost 5-3) # 26 ranked Jake Jakobsen of Lehigh (Conel lost 3-1) # 20 ranked Kordell Norfleet of Arizona State (Conel lost 10-4) And all three of Conel's wins this year were by one point: 6-5 over # 41 ranked Cole Urbas of Pennsylvania and 4-3 over # 29 ranked Jake Koser of Navy and 2-1 in OT over # 28 ranked Jaron Smith of Maryland.
  18. One thing that is VERY clear to me regarding all of this is the word COMMITMENT means something VERY different now than it did when I was young.
  19. If I understand this correctly: A. Kerkvliet first committed to wrestle for Minnesota (where he's from) B. Kerkvliet changed his commitment to Oklahoma State C. Kerkvliet actually signed to wrestle for Ohio State D. Kerkvliet enrolled at Ohio State last fall E. Kerkvliet entered the transfer portal on Nov. 1st of this year F. Kerkvliet has now "committed" to wrestle for Penn State Does that about sum it up? The only question that comes to my mind is...........WHERE will he ACTUALLY be at next season?

  21. "Zahid is not a pinner" ?????? FACTS Zahid already has four pins this season in 7 actual matches (not counting last night's win by Forfeit) Zahid won 12 matches by FALL during the 2019 season Zahid won 9 matches by FALL during the2018 season Zahid won 14 matches by FALL during the 2017 season Zahid won 5 of 11 matches by FALL during his redshirt year (2016)
  22. Looks like Patrick Thompson (who I quoted in my previous post here) guessed correctly about Norfleet.
  23. I noticed that Brandon Kier, who has been competing this season at 133 lbs, moved up to 141 lbs because Real Woods was not in the Stanford lineup. I also noticed that for the 2nd straight dual match Requir van der Merwe was not in the Stanford lineup at 149 lbs
