  1. Rocky might be a 184, but I suspect Hoffman will be the starter there.
  2. Does he make the lineup? Could be a three way battle among him, Ethan Smith, and Romero (if karchla goes right away).
  3. Nolf Nickal Martin Steveson Diakomihalis Hall Jordan Marinelli Fix Rivera

    Final Picks: National Champs.. tOSU or PSU?

    Gonna be fun. I think PSU slight favorite and would be my pick at this point. However, I do feel like the Buckeyes could win. Lots of interesting variables. For instance, if Nolf competes and looks his typical self, tOSU winning seems much less likely. Then again, it wouldn't shock me to see the Buckeyes put 9 in semi finals (not predicting it will happen, but also not unrealistic). If that happens, then I think tOSU wins even with a healthy Nolf. Basically, I don't know what the hell is going to happen but it should be one of the most exciting team races in a while.

    Who makes the podium at NCAAs?

    There are a lot of teams with 3/4 potential, maybe even add in Virginia Tech and Arizona State to have an outside shot if things fall their way. At least at the moment, I think it ends up being Michigan at 3, and Iowa at 4. However, I'd love to see a non Big Ten team sneak in there.

    Ohio State could end up in 4th

    Over the past few years, Ohio State seems to be a stronger tournament team than they are dual team. The also have done a good job finishing strong at Big Tens and NCAA's. While anything is possible, I see it highly unlikely they finish lower than 2nd. They have potential point scorers up and down the lineup, and several guys who could make it deep into the AA rounds. Not to mention potential finalists in at least four weights (125, 184, 197, 285). I think the battle between The Buckeyes and Penn State at both Big Tens and NCAA's is going to be very exciting and likely decided during the finals of each tournament.

    What to do about 141?

    That doesn't even include guys like Thorn, Red, Alber, and Smith. Hell, Thursday evening session in this weight is going to be nuts.

    Big Ten Predictions

    NATO Micic McKenna Zain Nolf IMAR BoJo Nickel Moore Snyder

    Best free agent move?

    At this point i would bet on McKenna because I'm skeptical PDIII makes it that far. However, if both at the tourney, then I'd say PDIII but by a close margin

    Predicted Order of NCAA Team Race

    1. PSU/tOSU (going to be fun to watch this race) 3. Michigan (they are loaded) 4. OK State (presuming both Fix and Smith RS but will still be a threat for third) 5. Several teams battle close for 5th - Iowa/ASU/Mizzou/VT/Lehigh/NC State
  11. Storr does look good. Maybe Darmstadt at Cornell?

    What other sport would most benefit a wrestler?

    Wasn't Nate Tomasello a gymnast?

    Ohio State Next year

    Just because Pletcher is from PA doesn't mean you know what his plans are. As you've proven on many occasions, you seldom know what you are talking about. And if you read my post instead of planning your next case of verboria, you'd recognize that I was not predicting Nate to 125 nor was I stating that there was any credible discussion of that happening. Micah to 157 only creates a hole at 149. Keyshawn and Pletch going 141&149, respectively, makes little sense to me unless they are really able to pack on the weight and muscle. Oh yeah, and regarding Sorensen, using your analogy MM beats Bo when it matters. But somehow that's different, right?

    Ohio State Next year

    Ohio State really needs to solve their issues at 125 and 157 to have a shot next year. If Nate can drop - which I doubt - they *could* get 8 or 9 AA's next year. However, with enormous holes at each of those weights they are destined to finish second again. Next year's team race might not be very interesting. PSU clear #1 and tOSU clear #2. Big separation between them, and also big separation between the Bucks and whoever finishes 3rd.
