    1032004 got a reaction from vegetable lasagna in Will PSU Defend Their Crown?   
    Nice spin...
    You basically even said it but the seedings should really only make a difference for B10's, not NCAA's...
    If PSU wins I think it will be Cael's best coaching job.   Not just "coming close"...
    PSU returned 3 guys that were finalist contenders from LAST season (RBY, Lee, Brooks) 
    They will likely only be starting 2 true freshmen (Howard & Bartlett), but they were both top 5 P4P recruits, and they may also be their lowest point scorers.   And Bartlett is only in the lineup because a Cadet world champ hasn't panned out.
    Only Kerk and Starocci are true "redshirt freshmen," this is Beard & Lee's third year in the room, and I believe Starocci was the only one that wasn't a top P4P recruit?

    1032004 reacted to Jaroslav Hasek in Spey!! We Have a new Ranking Controversy   
    here's the explanation from this week's heavyweight rankings:
    Greg Kerkvliet is back and slides back into his rankings just one spot behind where he was earlier this season before Penn State Head Coach, Cael Sanderson, said he would likely be done for the season. He was ranked so high to begin the season thanks to his win over Lewis Fernandes of Cornell who was #16 before the Ivy League canceled winter sports.

    Three times I think?
    Minnesota first, then O(klahoma)SU, before ultimately enrolling at tOSU - https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6231674-1-kerkvliet-re-opens-commitment-releases-school-list
    Although I believe decommitting from Minnesota was after Gable committed?
    In general I don't really have an issue with the decommitting, but the transfer last year was a little weird considering how quick it happened and the fact that he went in the portal I believe the day before tOSU's first competition.

    1032004 got a reaction from Housebuye in Cowboy Challenge   
    I dunno, the wording of the answer is weird.    He starts out by saying "the infrastructure isn't in place," but then goes on to say "If we produce a live event, it is to go to ESPN+ or the ESPN family of networks (their choice) and their expectation is that our production is to be professional grade. If they choose not to pick up an event, then it can’t be shown"
    Sounds to me like ESPN wouldn't allow them to, but then not sure why he wouldn't lead with that.
    I agree, seems weird to complain about Flo since I'm sure they got a lot of complaints during this event about not being able to see some of the matches at all.

    Yes Amine is a 6th year senior, but isn’t Beard a 3rd year freshman (grayshirt/redshirt)?
    I think Amine wins it.

    1032004 got a reaction from madcat11 in College wrestlers getting married   
    I get this as a lot of people these days live together before getting married anyway so a lot of them say not much changes after getting married (which I'd agree with).  However being in college where in many cases you don't really have to support yourself is a lot different than being in the real world IMO and could change a relationship.

    Not a bad squad here spread all throughout every corner of the country.   Apologies if any are wrong or I missed anyone, this includes former wrestlers as well as last year’s recruiting class. A lot of these guys are starters, some aren’t and I did list the 2 Lock Haven guys since they haven’t wrestled yet so no clue if they’re the starter or not. (Rankings via wrestlestat since that’s where I looked them up)

    This.   He's also not really a sleeper since Flo had him at #4 or something.
    I guess Bulsak has an outside shot at the finals but I don't see him winning.  He's lost twice to Schultz in his career, has lost to Norfleet, and has split matches with Beard including losing to him when he was in grayshirt and I believe the match where he beat Beard was the one where Beard was up big but gassed hard.

    You don't have to "accept" them, I just think that makes him not really a sleeper (plus once he beat Bonnacorsi)

    1032004 got a reaction from bracketbuster in Big Ten 125   
    Good research.  If you have Twitter you should enter the Stalemates stats challenge.
    I guess you could probably add any guys from American that would be ranked (such as Gage Curry at 125) to your Amine, etc list since I don’t believe they were in the coaches rankings.   
    Does seem that in general, freshmen in weak conferences are probably the most harmed, since they don’t have any historical data to get ranked/ranked higher or earn an allocation for the conference.  Someone like Micah Roes is interesting, I saw he was undefeated but hasn’t really beaten anyone that good.  So EIWA gets champ+2 auto qualifiers at 125 right?
    Looks like the coaches rank has the following guys ranked from the EIWA: Jaret Lane (22), Logan Treaster (25), Dylan Ryder (31), Roes (32), Jonathan Tropea (33).   I guess one could argue that you wouldn’t feel too bad for Roes if he doesn’t finish ahead of Ryder and Tropea (2 more guys that Aguilar beat last year, although Treaster did beat him).  Interesting that the EIWA could have a ranked guy miss out despite EIWA getting the Ivy allocations and the Ivy had 4 qualifiers last year.

    1032004 got a reaction from JHRoseWrestling in Looks like Rutgers to send guys to Penn State for extra matches   
    Yeah the more I think about it my guess is the only starters Cael might want to get more matches anyway are Howard, Beard and whoever their 149 is going to be.  And Rutgers would have at least an outside chance to win all those matches, and other than the obvious covid concern, not much motivation to duck IMO since Aguilar is 0-4 and Van Brill is 1-3, and if Beard beats Hoffman he’d have a common opponent win on Janzer.
    Honestly since both teams have already been paused, that likely means at least a few guys have already had it.  It’s possible they may just wrestle guys “not in the testing pool” to minimize risk.  
    It could also just be a chance to get some of the backups (on both teams) matches too.

    This.  Missouri is great, and it’s not their fault they’re in a weak conference or tend get over-seeded at NCAA’s.  Doesn’t make it less true. 
    The problem is moreso the seeding criteria.  I can’t believe they use winning % when these teams have vastly different schedules (which IMO also encourages ducking).   Not to mention weighing all conference championships the same.

    He just wrestled in a dual Thursday.  Yes coaches have been ducking for awhile but at least in the past the guy just didn’t wrestle at all.   It’s BS IMO to basically say he’s too hurt to wrestle a guy he’ll probably lose to, but he’s not too hurt to wrestle a backup.
