OK the Nebraska preview. NU is coming off a 9th place finish, losing 1 wrestler that earned points ninth NCAAs and a second qualifier who didn't make weight.
125 has gone from a question mark to a strength by adding Zeke Moisey, 2x AA graduate transfer from VTech. Zeke should earn a spot on the podium again giving NU points at 125. FR Alex Thomsen, originally would have started, will likely redshirt.
133 could see one from 125 move up, but more likely one of 2 SRs, 2 rFR and 2 FR will battle it out. I expect SR Brian Peska to start. Possible NQ here
141 AA Chad Red returns. Unseeded at the NCAAs he took 7. Two pins helped NU's team score. Red certainly expects to be on the podium aagain.
149 loses McCrystal who lost in the blood round. Two JRs will fight for this spot and I expect one or 2 from 157 to drop and see if they can win the job. Colin Purinton, who started two years ago, is the favorite. NQ, maybe a win or two in the tournament is what I would expect.
157 returns 2 time AA Tyler Berger. Don't know if he can improve on his 3rd place finish, especially with the talent at 157, but being hot at the right time could help. He'll be on the podium, just where is open.
165 Isaiah White fell in the blood round, both losses in SV, including the quarterfinal match against the NC Joseph. 165 is very tough again, White will make that blood round and a good shot at the podium.
174 rFR Mikey Labriola (I expect) will take that starting job from Breske. His redshirt year included two victories over 2018 AAs at 174. His only losses were to Lydy fro Purdue at the Midlands. Another likely AA.
184 returns AA Taylor Venz. Venz took 4th as a rFR. While he took more losses than you'd expect for #4, most were avenged later in the season. Venz will make that podium again and should be a finalist at some point in his career.
197 NQ Eric Schultz returns. He went 2-2 at the NCAAs. NU has some lighter guys at 285 and its possible one will try to drop. Either way NQ and a couple wins is a reasonable expectation.
285 David Jensen is one of 3 JRs,adding a FR and rFR into the mix looking to start. Jensen started last year but expect multiple challenges. There's a lot of new blood at 285 so this is really hard to predict.
In the end NU has a shot at 6 AAs, mostly 5-8, with a couple going for 3rd. Could do better, also could drop guys in the R12.
