JerryCallo got a reaction from silver-medal in Ryan seed protecting
You all need to take a deep breath. From what Ryan said, if NaTo is healthy after this week, he is planning on starting against the Gophers next week. If memory serves, they have a pretty decent 125 pounder so NaTo is not exactly ducking everybody. I think Ryan would be more rippable for putting NaTo out against Suriano without a warm up match -
JerryCallo got a reaction from BigTenFanboy in 1999-Current Tournament of NCAA Champions
This is about the most subjective thing I have seen in a while - but it is fun - so have at it!
The only way this made sense to me was to limit a guy to one weight class. Given that, here goes:
125 - Anthony Robles - ASU
133 - Jordan Oliver - Ok St
141 - Logan Stieber - Oh St
149 - Zain Retherford - PSU
157 - Kyle Dake - Cornell
165 - David Taylor - PSU
174 - Ed Ruth - PSU
184 - Cael Sanderson - ISU
197 - J'Den Cox - Mizz
285 - Kyle Snyder - Oh St
The 3 guys I left out who were the hardest to leave out were Askren at 174, Varner at 197 and Konrad at 285.
JerryCallo got a reaction from BadgerMon in Biggest weight gains
Here is a good one that always interested me - mostly since I knew the L-C wrestling coach and I followed Matt and his brother's career in HS.
Matt Pell was a 3 x Wisconsin HS champ from Luxemburg-Casco HS
1999-2000 at 119 lbs
2001-2002 at 140 lbs
2002-2003 at 145 lbs
He was 7th in the NCAA's for Mizzou at 184 lbs in 2005.
He dropped 2 weight classes and came in 3rd in 2007 at 165.
Pretty sure the reason for the jump to 184 was a little problem with making the team at 165 (AA Tyronne Woodley) or 174 due to the presence of another pretty decent former Wisconsin good wrestler by the name of Ben Askren. Pell even beat Roger Kish in the blood round in 2005, so he was no fluke!
JerryCallo got a reaction from grappler6 in Who is your team?
I would say my top 5 are:
1 Minnesota (I live in the Twin Cities)
2 Cornell (grew up in Upstate NY) Go Section V!
3 Rutgers (went there for a graduate degree)
4 Bloomsburg (went to Russ Houk's Camp way back when)
5 Appalachian State (daughter went there)
JerryCallo reacted to NCBuckeye in tOSU Lineup Next Year
If Campbell ends up in Columbus that helps at 165. With the training partners he will have an AA finish is very possible.
Best hope for 125 appears to be JRod if he can make the weight. Sounds as if he battled injury much of the year on top of the weight cut. Perhaps we see him back closer to what he looked like early this season.
Not sure about 157. Most likely starter appears to be Ryan. Perhaps Burcher makes the cut to challenge for the spot?
9 out of 10 champions next year could be either tOSU or PSU. Not sure how I feel about that.
141 With Heil at OK St
Obviously not all of these are locks, but geesh.
JerryCallo got a reaction from gobraves101905 in Can the West Win? (I mean Sun Devils really)
I heard from someone on another site who has good sources - at least way better than me - that there is no way T-shirt goes 149 next year and he has been building himself for the move to 157 during his off year. For what is worth . . .
JerryCallo got a reaction from CoachWrestling in Programs that need a change
In my humble opinion - the Big 10 wrestling programs break down like this:
Top Tier: Iowa, PSU, Ohio State, Michigan, Nebraska, Minnesota
On the rise/holding their own: Rutgers, Illinois, Wisconsin
Hurtin' for Certain: MSU, NW, IU, Purdue, MD
JerryCallo got a reaction from HurricaneWrestling in Tomasello - 4 timer?
OK - who has the best chance - in terms of % of being a 4 timer - from the following list:
t Tomasello - I say 33%
2 Nolf - I say 15%
3 Nickal - I say less than 10%
4 Mark Hall - I say 25%
I did indeed pull these numbers out of my butt - but hey - who can argue with math?
