    Nebraska at Penn State

    The Motivated Athlete/s as most at PSU and other top schools are ALWAYS WANT Training to be as hard as possible, which is fun to them, The motivated athlete is always on a thin line with breaking down from illness/injury do to wanting to train as much as possible, sometimes they go over the line, A big part of a coaches job is to keep them from doing too much and peaking at the right time.

    Penn State 2019-20

    Maybe it was a typo, meaning 2012-2020, to talk about next year? Hall and Cenzo could go in as favorites, as could Shakur if he gets a 6th year.

    Minnesota vs Iowa

    I just do not like the ducking by ANYONE, They should just have a blind draw at NCAA's, so there are no seeds to protect, Stoll is VERY GOOD and he would have a legitimate shot at upsetting Steveson, not wrestling because you Might get injured because you have been injured before, what if you slip and fall on your stairs at your house? do you never use the upstairs, have an elevator installed? or try again, you can get injured in practice, you can get injured against a non ranked wrestler, just do your best and let the chips fall where they may.

    Looks like Stoll decided to be a COWARD AGAIN, I am surprised Brands Recruits Wrestlers who puss out when they Wrestle someone they might lose to, These ARE NOT Gable's Wrestlers. It is better to battle and lose than to just be a coward. I know Stoll and Brands would disagree.

    And don't forget The True Freshman Phenom Gable Stevenson Facing The #1 Heavyweight in the Nation according to Intermat Sam Stoll

    Iowa vs Minn

    Stoll is a Wrestler/Combat Athlete, wouldn't DUCKING an opponent go against the mindset of a Wrestler? I know Ducking HAS ALWAYS been a problem in Boxing usually for Business Reasons the Promoters and Managers don't want to put their so called star in with a High Risk opponent unless they get Money they can retire on. Apparently Minnesota's Lizak ducked Rutgers Suriano, they say coaches protect their athletes seed by not letting them Wrestle people they have a reasonable chance of losing to, but in the case of Stoll and Lizak the lower seed is ducking the higher seed, meaning they have everything to gain and nothing to lose, Why does this happen? I would think Wrestlers would not want to Wrestle for coaches who don't let them Wrestle the top people, even in a loss you find out what the gap is, Lets say Stoll loses by 5, then he knows there is a 5 point gap, now just work hard and try to close the gap by Conference and just go for it at NCAA.

    Rutgers @ Minnesota 3:15pm on B1G Network

    Darn and that was the best matchup of the dual, I hope he gets better and is ready for Conference and NCAA.

    Yojo & Gene Davis in the OSU room

    Jerry Brisco said Myron Roderick would wrestle the Wrestlers on the team and the only ones he could not handle were Jack Brisco And Uetake, Sidenote as Athletic Director he would go to the Wrestling Practice and help out, one Wrestler who was NCAA Champ the previous year, interrupted him and Myron Roderick said TAKE ME DOWN, And Roderick got the best of the NCAA Champion and Myron Roderick took the NCAA Champion down, Roderick was in his mid 50's with a huge beer gut, amazing.

    PSU next year

    Would Hall And/Or Joseph take a redshirt next year with the Olympics coming up to work on Freestyle? Joseph could take an Olympic Redshirt as could Hall, Hall has not used his regular Redshirt as well.

    The Southern Scuffle Thread

    If he can't make 125, he probably redshirts, not really needed NCAA team point wise, and even if he beats Roman Bravo Young in a wrestleoff (Not a given) it is not a significant upgrade.

    Let's Scuffle (brackets out)

    All Heresay, but I heard Chandler Rogers ALWAYS kicked Marsteller's backside when they worked out at Oklahoma State Just what I heard, ZERO inside Knowledge) I know practice and a match are different, but Marsteller in the Southern Section Finals is not a given, And Yes Marsteller is wrestling better now than then, but even so with practice partners you can throw out the odds as each knows every little twitch the other does before a move, Marsteller did beat C. Rogers 9-7 last season at NCAA, But Happy New Year, enjoy the Tournament.

    Minnesota - 18/19

    AGREE 100%, but his future is bright, he will have a reasonable chance, Will be interesting at NCAA's with him, Cassar, and the young Stevenson.

    Predict Your Team’s NCAA Score

    Penn State according to Wrestlestat Penn State is Redshirting 3 Wrestlers, Teasdale has been injured and is just getting back, Teske was a big High School star (I don't follow High School much, but I have heard of Teasdale and Teske who were Blue Chip prospects) any chance Penn State pulls the Redshirt of Teske and/or Teasdale? Thank you in advance.
  15. Just do it the traditional way, start at 125 and end at Heavyweight, Maybe have Stevenson a True Freshman going for an undefeated season.
