    Spencer Appears Focused and Ready for Sunday

    He actually had walking pneumonia. I'm not kidding either.

    Spencer Appears Focused and Ready for Sunday

    Yeah I can't recall it either, even in high school. If he did sneer at some opponents after pinning him, it couldn't have been too blatant
  3. Yeah, because he was tired. I, for one, could see it. He was noticeably slower in the third period, compared to Micic who seemed fresh. His reaction time was way down, which is how Micic shot and scored that TD so quickly and cleanly.
  4. I think Austin Gomez can beat Suriano as well. I think the book on Suriano now is avoid the TD in the first but make him work, and then you'll get an opening or two in third as he tires and slows down. His muscles require a lot of oxygen!

    In the third period. Final score was 9-2. Fix had 2+4+1+2

    Fix took Erneste down twice - plus he got back points.

    It's going to be interesting to see how Suriano handles the gauntlet of Big10s and the NCAAs with a loaded weight class. Last year at NCAAs, he didn't meet a top guy until the semis, and beat Cruz 2-0 in a match where he didn't really do anything. We all know what happened in the finals. I thought Suriano has looked tired a few times this year against top guys: he looked gassed to me against Erneste, he was clearly exhausted at the end of the DeSanto match while DeSanto was still in high gear, and he looked noticeably slower in the 3rd period against Micic. This doesn't bode well for him.

    Suriano also only scored three point against Erneste in a 3-2, and stalled at the end of that match while appearing wiped out. Refs have also got wise to some of the things that Suriano has done in the past - stalling by constantly interlocking fingers and refusing to shoot, bending the fingers back, not seeking to improve position on top, hands to the face, etc. He's kind of a dirty wrestler. That said, it was good to see him take more chances against Micic, although I don't think he is very comfortable doing that. Micic took one full shot and finished it quickly and cleanly.

    Finishing is already Suriano's strength - his conversion rate is extremely high. Yet he wasn't able to finish against Micic. That doesn't bode well, especially since Micic is great at figuring guys out the second time he sees them (see Pletcher, DeSanto).

    Except refusing to wrestle freestyle after losing to Fix years ago.

    Agreed. It was good to see Suriano open up today some more and push the issue, but I don't think he's comfortable there. I see him losing close matches to the top guys again at Big 10s and NCAAs. Also, Micic is a guy who is great at making adjustments against wrestlers he sees more than once. His TD in the 3rd period was quick, clean and lethal - Suriano never even had an opportunity to fend it off.

    Imagine the outcry if DeSanto had attempted that move.

    Nolf

    Kennedy would have won without that TD anyway. He was leading by criteria at 6-6. I know Kennedy didn't "drub" him. It was a close, competitive match, but Kennedy did expose why Nolf's complete dominance in folk won't necessarily translate to dominance in freestyle.

    Va Tech vs Cornell

    For those saying Vito is a threat to be a finalist at 125, just watch his match against Prata. It's not happening this year. Also, Vito is so sucked out right now he looks like Christian Bale in The Machinist.
