  1. His college career was not a total bust but I expected to see more from Mario Mason in college. A fair amount of Blair alums on this thread -- I would also throw the Shanaman brothers in this category.
  2. Travis Blasco. Great HS career but never followed through at Iowa.
  3. I'm not a PSU fan but I recall that in years past they underperformed at the B10s and peaked at the national tournament. I think Iowa will win it all this year but PSU may perform better than they are this weekend.
  4. Correnti from Rutgers just entered the portal at 197. NQ two years back but seemingly regressed after that.
  5. Rutgers: 125: Aguilar (Aragona redshirts) 133: Suriano 141: Lipari 149: Benner/VanBrill (younger)/Firestone 157: Benner/VanBrill (younger) 165: Glasgow (hopefully healthy) 174: Grello 184: Janzer (looking forward to it) 197: Correnti 285: Colucci as an aside, it looks like Raimo to ASU a Done deal.
  6. Suriano can turn on the offense when he wants to (the Lizak match is a good example), but he tightens up against the top guys. I thought both Suriano and Fix could have been more aggressive in the finals, but ultimately Suriano was more willing to shoot while Fix waited for a counter or penalty. Headgear call could’ve went either way but I don’t think anyone is too upset about Fix losing with that strategy.
  7. Interested to see if the hands to the face changes result in more offense from Fix.
  8. He’s better off teaching Fix a go-to takedown than insisting on a hands to the face call. Fix never tried to score.
  9. Despite all of the baseless Rutgers hate, I think the coaching staff did a great job developing Van Brill. The guy didn’t win a state title in high school and still ended up a multiple NCAA qualifier. Same with Gravina, who I don’t think ever placed top 8 in high school.
  10. I’m not a fan of Stoll or his old-school heavyweight style. That being said, I thought he outwrestled Parris apart from the stall calls and deserved to win that match.
  11. Is the speculation that White would be seeded behind Cassar based on strength of schedule?
  12. He generally doesn’t do himself any favors in interviews. I thought he wrestled well last night and hope he keeps the momentum. I don’t blame Micic- he was injured most of the year and probably just got a match in to stay fresh. Suriano, Nolf, etc. have all done that in conference tournaments. Not necessarily the same as a Lee “duck” when it’s because you need to be healthy in two weeks to have a shot at a title.
  13. Exciting match overall. Some notes. Ashnault is exciting to watch and really pushes to score throughout. Hope he keeps it up down the stretch. Van Brill looked sharp against Monday at 157. I think Monday has a lot of potential and will put it together over the next few seasons. I hope Glasgow is ok- he torqued his knee early on and could barely stand. I really like Gravina but for a guy who is tough on top and solid defensively, he’s never developed a go-to shot. Lots of counter wrestling. Pleasantly surprised by Correnti’s effort today. He was inches away from being in bounds on that TD and stayed away from upper body (which has been tough for him lately).
  14. He looked good against Jordan and Gfeller. We should see an exciting match vs Kolodzik in a few weeks. Tough weight class though.
