    I’m not sure if Zain vs Yianni has a favorite. Yianni won in a super close match. 
    I’m picking Yianni, but man it’s a tough call 
    i think Ringer is a live underdog. Dake is injured and hasn’t wrestled since worlds. Ringer is top 5ish level even before the open and trials. He is ready to go. Super excited for this one. 
    Gilman vs Fix is 50/50. Gilman owns the series. 
    Nickal vs Jden is also compelling.  Jden is a heavy favorite but I’m pumped for it. 
    It is astounding that with so many returning world champions, there are so many matches up in the air. We’ve never been this deep

    It was asked if he could.
    Anyone can be pinned.
    Bo can pin anyone.
    Therefore it could happen.
    Doesn't mean it will.
    Quit being a flower.

    Zillmer is a stud cmon. I think he could beat Nickal. Moore will be fine and compete for a spot. I doubt just because of our team that Moore will ever make a world team. Our team may be the best it has ever been in the history of our team. Especially in the upper weights.

    I don't think Nolf is ready but he has upside and Green I think his best days are behind him. 
    Nolf is going to progress at a much higher rate if he gets on this world team.

    Oliver is never going to be the rep guys, he's a mental midget and lacks the grit in competitions. He's probably the best practice guy you've ever seen no one more talented, but he just doesn't have the it factor. Yanni does. Yanni lives for the big moment. Oliver may be one of those guys that if he ever stepped into the octagon would get taken down and people would say I thought he was a wrestler ? kinda like Ed Ruth. Same problem with Ed in freestyle.

    cangemi got a reaction from Coach_J in Aside from Snyder and Cassar, are there smaller HWT champs?   
    Howard Harris and he pinned everyone he weighed below 200 maybe 195
     
    Harris is one of the greatest wrestlers in the history of Oregon State University. He was a four-time All-American at 190 lbs and heavyweight, and holds the school record for career wins (169) and single season pins (40, 1980). He won the NCAA Heavyweight championship in 1980 with a perfect record of 46-0 and is one of only five wrestlers to pin every opponent in the NCAA tournament.[4] His dominance at the NCAA tournament garnered him the Outstanding Wrestler Award, the first African-American to win the award.[5]

    The only logic I can come up with for TD for Yianni, is that it was a makeup call for the one they botched earlier, and they wanted a fresh slate in OT.

    "Next Year".....I don't think I'm looking at the same ISU and Iowa rosters you are if you think ISU could take the crown "next year".
    If Iowa stays healthy (big if) they SHOULD (another big should) be pushing PSU for a team title. 
    125- Lee
    133- DeSanto
    141- Renteria
    149- Lugo
    157- Young/Brands
    165- Marinelli
    174- Kemerer
    184- Wilcke
    197- Warner
    HWT- Cassioppi
    Freshman like Assad and Kennedy coming in to maybe push Wilcke. 
     
    I agree that Dresser is on a major upward trend and definitely has the ability to contend with Iowa, but I just don't think it's coming next year.

    I am a Rasheed homer. Have history with his high school coach.
    I think he wrestled well. He really is more then just a cradle. He has great mat sense.
    That said I'm rooting for Venz be on opposite side of bracket at Nationals.  He is extremely dangerous. You can see he is up to no good at all times. He had me edge of seat., Almost got Rasheed at end.

    hey, I'm a Long Island NY (section XI) transplant living in PA myself who is always asked, "are you from NY, NJ?" My aging Mom gets it all the time too. Our accent always gives it away, but you know what - we try not to let the dislike for those of us from this part of the country get to us. Nick does'nt seem to care either. He is who he is and he's proud of it. Maybe he "talks too much" because people talk too much about him.
