    #7 Mizzou vs #10 Virginia Tech

    I don’t blame haught. He was going for bonus. I prefer guys going for it rather than running away. But yeah...that was like the tOSU LOSS TO PSU at the dual. Everyone thought tOSU had it locked up and then Moore lost to the PSU backup (I know Caesar is amazing). Also - You are right. 6-4 Missouri.

    Iowa vs Princeton

    Highly touted. Has some wins over Teasdale, Lee’s former training partner. Very good scrambler. Wouldn’t be shocked if he snuck on the podium this year. With that said...you are probably right

    Iowa vs Princeton

    Exciting dual happening at 8 eastern tonight How will Glory look be Spencer Lee? Lugo has had Kolodzik’s number. Kolodzik is ranked #1. Great matchup. Princeton always wrestled tough. Iowa will have to be in point. With a few of their starters missing, this should be a fun one. Iowa should still dominate, but will likely lose some matches

    #7 Mizzou vs #10 Virginia Tech

    125 - interesting. Not sure who VT will start. Either guy is an underdog but can win. 133 - Erneste has a dominant win over Korbin 141 - Moore is solid for a true freshman but is going to get smashed 149 - Blees is good and rumor is he has jumped levels, but Leeth is a title contender. Leeth smash 157 - Laprade is the favorite 165 - Flynn is solid but Mekhi is going to win ncaas, so... 174 - McFadden is wrestling at U23s. I think h would’ve beaten Lewis again. Lewis prob gets a pin, which could be the difference in the team race. 184 - another good match. Wiseman is no joke. ZZ is perpetually ranked 6th and will get the win here due to top 197 - crazy match last season, but neither guy is still in the team. Sleigh takes it 285 - backup for VT. I say Elam takes it. I think it ends up being: 24-12 Missouri, but that includes 2 pins (141,174) I have the matches split at 6-4, but am not confident at all in 2 of those picks. VT has a way to win this. With McFadden Missouri would only be a slight favorite. Big point swing at 174

    Fix vs Gross/Lizak this weekend

    Not sure if you responded to the right person? I said that Fix is better on the feet than both gross and lizak

    Anyone who picked Gable Steveson May want to reconsider, unless you know he is competing attached for Minn this weekend

    Fix vs Gross/Lizak this weekend

    Ok state is sometimes weak in bottom, especially at the lighter weights. Piccinnini and Brock come to mind. Hoping Fix doesn’t have these issues. Fix is a freestyle phenom. Remember we were all concerned about Spencer’s transition (too small, not strong enough, etc) Fix has different challenges (isn’t as good as Lee on top, doesn’t have leg attacks quite as good) but nobody is doubting his strength or size. Even if Fix takes a loss or two, remember Spencer did as well earlier in the season. Granted Fix is older and has an extra year in a college room too. If Fix hits a few takedowns but loses because he struggles on bottom, I think he will still end up high on the podium. If he loses the takedown battle convincingly, he might be in a bit of trouble come March. Cant wait
  10. McFadden will learn from this. He showed that his wrestling is on par with Shapiev, who very well could win the tournament. That was poor tactics from McFadden. That is the easiest component to improve upon. very impressed with him. Hope he gets a shot at bronze

    Iowa vs Iowa State

    Iowa State could actually win this, although it is super unlikely. I'm not predicting this, but... 125 Lee tech Mackall - 5-0 133 Desanto vs Gomez - toss up - 5-3 141 Murin vs Parker - Murin slight fav, but Parker can win - 5-6 (ISU takes a lead) 149 Lugo vs Degan - toss up, both have taken surprising losses this season - 5-9 157 Young vs Straw - Young is a favorite, but a Straw win wouldn't be shocking - 5-12 165 Marinelli vs Jennings - Marinelli is a way better. Can Jennings hold him to a major? 9-12 174 Kemerer vs Coleman - Kemerer hasn't wrestled yet. He may still be out of the lineup. While Coleman has looked solid, if Kemerer is there, he wins. If it is a backup, ISU takes it. with Kemerer: 13-12 without kemerer: 9-15 184 Wilcke vs Colbrey - Wilcke is a favorite. Colbrey is game, but probably loses by 1 or 2 takedowns. Kemerer: 16-15 (Iowa lead) no kemerer: 12-15 197 Warner vs Miklus - Warner may still be out of the lineup. Even if he is there, this is a tossup. Warner did major him last year. Kemerer: 16-18 no Kemerer - 12-18 285 Stoll vs Gremmel - Stoll may not start. Backup loses to Gremmel. Stoll pin Kemerer and Stoll: 21-18 no Kemerer: 18-18 - tie, Iowa criteria (relies on Stoll pin) No stoll or kemerer: 12-21 ISU wins TLDR ISU has a tiny chance of winning. If Iowa has their full lineup, it is even less likely. If Stoll and/or Kemerer is out, ISU could win. ISU needs to limit bonus points wins (125, 165, 285 especially) and win every close match (133, 141, 149, 157, 197).

    Kemerer and Warner are out. Not sure about Stoll

    Iowa vs Princeton

    125 wont be close, but it’s still a fun matchup. Glory is a solid scrambler and has good leg attacks. He also has nothing to lose.

    Last Man Standing - 2018/19 (Belated Edition)

    Damn. Ruffin will prob wrestle David Carr tomorrow. Griffin parriot too. Nervous about Carr. Also don’t want to root against him.
  15. Great performance so far! hidlay taking baev down like that is super impressive. Moore looking amazing.
  16. Who has the toughest schedule this year? Warner would've been #1 possible, but is sitting out the first few (not hating...I'm sure there is a good reason) Kordell Norfleet has Chip Ness, Myles Martin, Shakur Rasheed and Jelani Embree in his next 4 duals. He started off with 5 easy matches, but he doesn't get an easy one for a little while. Daton Fix has Seth Gross, Ethan Lizak and Montorie Bridges in his next 3 matches. That's pretty crazy. There are plenty of other guys with difficult starts to the season. Who else should be on this list?

    Last Man Standing - 2018/19 (Belated Edition)

    The handful of people who have Gable in either position will be eliminated if he doesn't start the next dual, right? Seems risky. Hope he does...
  18. UWW is missing out on capturing a bigger chunk of the US market. If the sport can continue to grow here, especially in freestyle, UWW, the fans, and athletes from around the world will benefit. We have an incredibly powerful economy and a strong culture of supporting sports. Combine that with an America vs the world pitch and wrestling can explode. The US has the most amount of support and we are the best we’ve ever been. Now is the time for UWW to capitalize. If we can get more American money flowing into the sport it will help every country’s athletes. A guy like Sadulaev would be hugely popular. Look at how infamous/famous Khabib is! For a guy like Bonne, it could be life changing to have some American support too. He could do clinics here, all star matches, etc. LA Olympics is too far away. Maybe 2021 or 2022 in an accessible US city with a strong fan base would be great. It should’ve been 2019, but it’s too late for that. UWW has a great chance to grow the sport right now in the biggest market in the world. It’s time to act.

    Last Man Standing - 2018/19 (Belated Edition)

    Fair point. Yeah. Wanted to find someone under the radar. I like Ruffin. He is consistent, or at least was in high school. Him being a true freshman also makes this fun, because I think guys will underestimate him.

    Last Man Standing - 2018/19 (Belated Edition)

    I would’ve put Mekhi but 3 people already did. I could choose a different backup, but whatever First pick: Justin Ruffin backup: Labriola

    Iowa vs Iowa State

    Fair enough. I think you are underestimating Gremmel but I could be doing the same with Costello, especially if the dual is on the line. Maybe im crazy, but I don’t get the Young love (ha). He has looked good so far but against mediocre competition. Dropping weights often times works out poorly. While he is certainly a favorite in this match, I don’t think he is nearly as good as people have been claiming for the last week. I do like Ike his story and hope he does well this year, but there is some serious overhyping going on. He has virtually no chance of making the podium unless he is way better than I think he is.
  22. Housebuye

    Iowa vs Iowa State

    That honestly might make the dual competitive. Both of those are winnable bs backups for ISU. Taking into account Stoll was likely to get a pin, that’s a major point swing (maybe 15)
  23. Worth noting that this isn’t our U23 A team We won’t have great results in freestyle either. We have 4 guys who have any shot at a medal. We aren’t sending out A team their either. We don’t take U23s seriously, so we shouldn’t expect good results. I honestly think our junior freestyle team from this year would fair better at U23s than our U23 team. To put it another way, our junior freestyle team would beat our U23 freestyle team in a dual.

    Fix vs Gross/Lizak this weekend

    Lizak may end up being even better at 133. He generqlly could go on the feet with anyone (besides Lee and Suriano) prior to getting tired. At 133 he may never get tired. I think he will have to get his turns going to beat Micic and Suriano, but he may be even on the feet with Gross. Tariq and Fix are unknown right now, but could both give Lizak similar trouble. I think Lizak is way more consistent this year due to the smaller weight cut and ends up placing top 5

    Iowa vs Iowa State

    True. ISU doesn’t have any locks. Their backup at 125, 133, 149, 157, 174, 184, 197 and hvwt would be underdogs though. If they don’t have all of their starters, they have almost no chance of blanking them. Does anyone really expect them to put all of their starters out there? 3 of them haven’t wrestled a match yet.
