    NCBuckeye reacted to Housebuye in Junior Worlds   
    We have 3 guys in the semis and the remaining two matches are winnable. We can realistically have 5 in the semis today. That would mean all 5 wrestle for medals. 
    Even cooler - 3 of our guys beat Iranians in the quarters. Iran is good on the senior level, but they are even better as of late in the junior level. These Iranian kids are very good and we managed to beat them today. Really impressive all around

    I don’t think it’s logical to compare fan interest in the South today to 1977. 
    Back then, there was very little high school wrestling going on in southern states. 
    Over the past 25 years or so (and especially the past 15) the number of high school teams in these states has increased exponentially. 
    If a few DI programs opened up in Florida and Georgia, giving the very best kids from the South a reason to staff close to home, I think such programs could be Top 20 within several years and be top ten contenders after that.

    NCBuckeye got a reaction from BigTenFanboy in 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.

    Except I think the two are connected, whereas you view them in isolation.  Being prepared to wrestle one match doesn't mean you're ready or obligated to wrestle every match.

    NCBuckeye reacted to steamboat_charlie in McKenna Transfer   
    I'm going to go against my better judgment and give you a serious response, and try not to insult you.  
     
    McKenna - Nobody reasonable expects McKenna to step into the lineup and win a national title.  In any case, most expect him to move to 149, with Hayes filling 141 and Micah 157.  To say he has "not made much noise in March for 2 years" is just incorrect.  He placed 3rd as a freshman, and quite obviously flamed out this year, falling far short of expectations.  He had a weird tournament, but it's not like he lost to scrubs.  Among the OSU lineup next season, he probably has the greatest variance in potential outcomes.  That said, over the past two seasons he's lost 6 matches, total.  
     
    Tomasello - Tomasello has had a pretty spectacular career.  His freshman year he wasn't expected to win NCAAs.  He got a great draw, and was on fire at the end of the season.  After all, he wrestled Zeke Moisey in the finals.  His freshman year he lost 4 matches.  Since then, he's lost two matches.  One to Gilman, and one to Clark.  You can look at placement and say "where's the improvement," but IMO that's a pretty terrible way to judge ability.  
     
    Jordan - 3 3 2 despite having 2 kids and persistent injury issues?  I mean, the guy couldn't even put a full week of practice together last year, and you say "no improvement" because he loses 1 controversial match to Mark Hall?
      Martin - On the way to his title as a freshman Martin wrestled:  unseeded Nick Wanzek, #6 seed Bryce Hammond, unseeded Matt Reed, unseeded Lelund Weatherspoon, and finally knocked off #1 seed Bo Nickal after going 0-3 against him during the season.  I mean, come on, Lelund freaking Weatherspoon, in the semis?  We all know his history with Nickal at this point.  Things broke his way in 2016 in a major way.  IMO he was much improved in 2017, but had a tough time adjusting to 184 in what was a deeper weight class than 174 the prior year.  
     
     
    How do you explain Kollin Moore's succes?  How about Jaggers?  Pucillo? Heflin?  Do they count as "improved" because their placements are in ascending order? I suppose Stieber and Snyder don't need coaches, because they would have done it on their own anyway?  I guess you win since you goaded me into a response.  Oh well.

    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.

    Crutchmer just got screwed.  He was in deep and out the back and the ref let it go for 30 seconds with no stalemate, and then inexplicably stalemated it right as Crutchmer was about to score (bottom leg stepped over and head popped out).  
     
    This might do in the Cowboys.  Crutcmer is not a guy I would peg for working back through the consis.  I think he comes out trying throws to either end matches or end his own tournament.

    myself and another poster on the 247 board have tweeted at white about him being a buckeye in the near future and he favorited both tweets. I guess that could be a good indicator he's coming but than again who knows. Wrestlingbucks put out a tweet about Jake Ryan having an injury riddled season this year after he lost the qualifying match in ot so I think we might see him at 157 again next year

    He is doing the opposite of bailing on his team. The fact that he still wrestles for the Bucks demonstrates his selflessness, especially since instead he could be taking financial advantage of his status as the new face of USA wrestling.
