    Maybe, just maybe,  it would be best to let Yianni win at LEAST 1 NCAA title before comparing him to one of very best most accomplished college wrestlers of all time?

    Theoretically, since Thorn majored  McKenna, and Lee  majored Thorn, Lee should beat McKenna handily.  
     
    But I guess that is why they still wrestle the matches  .  .  .

    But you gotta admit - the Neville Brothers may not be as good at wrestling as the Stevensons, but the are MUCH better singers!

    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 TobusRex in Retherford v. Heil - what's the outcome?   
    I doubt Heil would win, but I would be willing to bet Zain did not get a major decision.  Heil is that tough IMHO.

    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.
     
    Suriano
    NATO
    141 With Heil at OK St
    Zain
    Nolf
    Cenzo
    Hall/BoJo
    Nickal
    Moore
    Snyder
     
    Obviously not all of these are locks, but geesh.

    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 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?
