  1. I have very high confidence that Cassioppi will AA for Iowa, time will tell how high. I don't think a top 4 or 5 finish is unrealistic. He has the tools to beat most at the weight, but definitely takes risks and sometimes unnecessarily puts himself in precarious situations that cost him a match or two. 


  2. List of guys who have AA'd or made R12 in their careers + other impactful newcomers that will presumably be competing at 133 this season: 

     

    Gross (R12-2-1)

    Micic (4-2)

    Suriano (X-2)

    Fix/Piccinnini (4-R12)

    Pletcher (R16-4)

    DeSanto (R12)

    Wilson (3)

    Lizak (R16-2-4)

    Parker (R24-8-7)

    Bridges (8)

    Mueller (6-R12)

    Erneste (DNQ-NQ-R12)

    Lantry (NQ-R12-R16)

    Arujau/Tucker (NQ)

    Gomez

    RBY 

     

    Weight could be 15-16 deep with really quality guys. 


  3. Looking at the guys rumored to be moving up, and the returners at 133.. shaping up to be a monster weight class. 

     

    (Results are just from this past season) 

     

    Seth Gross (Champ @ 133)
    Stevan Micic (2nd @ 133)
    Nick Suriano (2nd @ 125)
    Daton Fix/Nick Piccinnini/Kaid Brock (Piccinnini R12 @ 125 - Brock 5th @ 133 - Fix Incoming RS FR)
    Ethan Lizak (4th @ 125)
    Luke Pletcher (4th @ 133)
    Tariq Wilson (3rd @ 133)
    Montorie Bridges (8th @ 133)
    Scotty Parker (7th @ 133)

    Austin DeSanto (R12 @ 133)
    John Erneste (R12 @ 133)
    Jack Mueller (R12 @ 133)

    Josh Terao (12 seed @ 133)
    Roman Bravo-Young (Incoming TR FR)
    Austin Gomez (Incoming RS FR)

    Vitali Arujau (Incoming GS FR)

     

    Any other notable names that belong on that list? The depth resembles 125 or 165 from 2018. 


  4. Iowas Multi Time Champs 

     

    Royce Alger - 2

    Ed Banach - 3

    Lou Banach - 2

    Terry Brands - 2

    Tom Brands - 3

    Chris Campbell - 2

    Barry Davis - 3

    Mark Ironside - 2 

    Eric Juergens - 2

    Marty Kistler - 2

    Randy Lewis - 2

    Terry McCann - 2

    Matt McDonough - 2

    Jeff McGinnis - 2

    Lincoln McIlravy - 3

    Brent Metcalf - 2

    Mark Perry - 2

    Joe Scarpello - 2

    Joe Williams - 3

    T.J. Williams - 2

    Chuck Yagla - 2

    Jim Zalesky - 3

     

    83 Total NCAA titles won by Iowa wrestlers. 

    50 of them won by the above list of multi time champs. 


  5. For working with what Bono has in Brookings, SD; small town and previously irrelevant to the national scene, he has got to be doing "more with less" and has butts in seats for every meet, and all of them are crazy for the team and program.  In my opinion, he is setting the standard of what a coach can/should do.

    I definitely agree. Any smaller school, or Non-Traditional wrestling power need look no further than SDSU and Bono to figure out how to elevate their program and excitement around it. Very impressive what he has done there in a short amount of time. 


  6. Tomasello TF Schnupp 5-0 tOSU

    Pletcher Dec Keener 8-0 tOSU

    Lee Dec McKenna 8-3 tOSU

    Retherford TF Hayes 8-8 TIE

    Jordan Pin Pipher 14-8 tOSU

    Joseph MDec Campbell 14-12 tOSU

    Hall Dec Jordan 15-14 PSU

    Nickal Dec Martin 18-14 PSU

    Moore Dec Rasheed/Cassar 18-17 PSU

    Snyder MDec Nevills 21-18 tOSU

     

    Bouts that I view as toss ups: 141-174-184 

     

    Something I don't expect to happen, but wouldn't shock me is if Rasheed came out like a ball of fire and lit up Kollin Moore with a cradle. I can just envision this happening at rec hall for some reason. His cradle has always been fierce, and he has hit it on multiple AA level guys in his career.  


  7. Didn’t Alex lose to McFadden in their first matchup in a tight one then beat him convincingly the second time around?

     

    Seems to demonstrate the ability to make adjustments albeit it wasn’t mid match.

    He won the first one 7-5 in a close one at the JR Open, then the second one 10-4 at JR WTTs.

  10. Is the Bey/Meyer match on trackcast accurate?  I'm not watching, but the "Alex Meyer" type kind of wrestler is beating the Jr. World Champ right now.

     

    Edit:  According to Track, Bey won, but can anyone tell me/us how the match actually went?

    I wasn't able to watch it, but from HR Meyer was leading 7-2 with 10 seconds left and got launched, maybe into a turn. Track shows him losing 9-7.
