  1. That’s it, and it looks like 2 before they went OB. Watched several Rider matches and they definitely seemed to get bad calls. Sucks for Walton.
  2. 197: Bulsak (1seed and #9 in coaches ranking) just got upset, so we don't get to see him vs Elam.
  3. Really close, but it looks like they were both out of bounds before the takedown. Sucks for the Rider wrestler because Kent was totally gassed and would've eventually lost if there was more time.
  4. 125: Surtin beat the 2 seed Ferri (KentSt) and is into the finals. He'll face Hildebrandt (CMU) who had a dogfight in his semi.
  5. Mekhi's best win was the 10 seed (Ashworth), with losses to 15 (Flynn) and the 7 (White). He was 15-0 after that, but only wrestled guys seeded 16 or lower. I think the 8 seed was pretty fair, but of course he looks like a really tough draw in retrospect. IMO, Marinelli deservedly carries the stigma of underperforming at NCAAs. He's been there twice, lost to lower-seeded guys each time (including Wick who he usually beat) and finished below his seed. That's the problem with being so good in the regular season, you get high seeds and it's pretty tough to match or exceed them (Alan Waters was a good example for Mizzou). The good news is that Marinelli has a couple more chances to drop that label.
  6. What happened to Connor Brown? I haven't seen it anywhere official, but heard in a couple places that Brown was injured in practice this week. Bad luck this close to NCAAs.
  7. Surtin (Mizzou) just pinned the 3 seed Werner (LHU) at 125.
  8. For some reason there's no dashboard, but if you click on the match number in the brackets, it does show the clock and the scoring. There's also a mat assignment tab in the Hub on Track, which I've never seen before but it works. O'Toole will be coming up on Mat 1.
  9. Hart seemed pretty cautious, only taking one real shot before OT and didn't quite finish it. Looking at Ervin's wrestlestat page, he seems to keep matches low scoring and is getting better too (up from #146 last year). Beat #25 Spann 5-1 and lost to Kaid Brock 12-7 a few weeks ago.
  10. Smith made a comment about R Elam probably not wrestling again until MACs. Pretty sure O'Toole's dad commented on FRL that Keegan wouldn't be there either. Probably most interested to see if Kent or Hawks wrestles. Heard on powermizzou that Kent is out for reasons unrelated to performance, so hopefully he makes it back. Seems weird to send half the team if they're worried about COVID, but maybe they plan to keep them separate in practices. Or maybe they're only sending starters that are pretty much locks for at-large NCAA bids if they miss MACs. Also heard on FRL that Fix would be back this weekend.
  11. Agreed. I could see a pin happening(either way) if somebody gets caught on their back, but I can't see a big score. I wouldn't be surprised to see Schultz win, as Elam loses some close ones. Really hoped that O'Toole ended up at 157. He looked a bit undersized at 165 and I think he'd get more bonus down a weight.
  12. Actually got a chuckle from that tweet. Probably because the first thing it brought to mind was Ogre.
  13. I agree and it looks like both guys will face enough top guys to have a strong resume. O'Toole should hit Franek (NDSU) this weekend and Carr (ISU) and Teemer (ASU) on Jan 17th. He'd also have Sheets (OkSt) and Dellavecchia (Rider; twice including MACs) later in the season. Depending on the ranking service, that's 2 guys in the top 5 and 3 more in the top 15. Elam should get Noah Adams (WVU), Tanner Sloan (SDSU; this weekend), Bulsak (Clarion at MACs), Norfleet (ASU), Coleman (ISU), and Holschlag (UNI). The number 1 guy, another top 7 guy, and 4 more in the top 15. Hopefully it doesn't happen, but COVID or injury will probably cause some of these guys to miss each other. On the flip side, maybe there will be fewer 'ducks' to protect seed with so few available matches.
  14. Sounds like O’Toole will be at 157 if he beats Jacques (I think he will). He wrestled 70kg at juniors and, per FRL, B Smith indicated it will be Jacques or O’Toole.
  15. Had his wisdom teeth removed right before. I believe Bratke said Smith told him it would be O’Toole or Jacques at 157.
  16. Brian Smith went over Mizzou's schedule on a podcast yesterday, but I can't find it posted anywhere online yet. No duals with BIG10 (going conf only) or ACC teams (limiting travel) this year. Sounds like Mizzou will have the Black and Gold on December 22nd and tri or quad meets on seven straight weekends starting January 3rd. Notable quad on January 17th with Northern Iowa, Iowa State, and Arizona State in Ames. As Jon noted, Mizzou has West Virginia and Oklahoma State on Feb 14th. MAC championships are the last weekend in February.

  18. Where was Karissa Schweizer on the list? She might be in the top 2 if not already listed.
  19. "Funky" Ben Askren was pretty appropriate.
  20. I'm sure he meant Max, who as a FS freshman was 28-1 (I believe his only loss was by defensive pin) prior to the 2007 NCAAs.
  21. Eierman majored him 12-4 at NCAAs the only time I can remember they wrestled. Until today.
  22. Looks like transferring has him well on his way ‘to the next level’.
  23. I wondered that too. Also, seemed like a short count to give the takedown. Picc may have been been in "danger" for 3 seconds, but looking strictly at the refs count it appeared that Picc started turning belly down as soon as heard the count (before 3 full swipes). Kind of similar to the Eierman/Yanni match at NCAAs.
  24. I’m pretty sure J’Den was our World rep at 86 kg in 2017 if that means anyhing.
  25. Mizzou forfeited 133, wrestled their backup at 141 (who got pinned) and their 3rd string hwt (Elam is redshirting). No fan of Mizzou (or folks that know anything about the team) are worried based on that dual.
