  1. Interview starts at 24:00 https://twitter.com/SteelwoodRadio/status/1176850302034698242?s=20
  2. It would make more sense to have McKenna vs. Yianni. Yianni being the NCAA Champ and McKenna the World Team Member. McKenna is the highest placing returning wrestler from this weight class since Logan is retired
  3. Actually they'd be able to score 30.5 if they're in a rat tail
  4. Actually, if you win your first match, lose, then win out, assuming all wins are by pin, you'd score 27.5. 3rd place has higher scoring potential than 2nd(24pts)
  5. Nickal did not look himself. He was backing up the entire match. That was the third time we saw one of the "locks" not look themselves (Martin v. Dean and Nolf v. Hidlay)
  6. I don't think the 133 loss factors into seeding
  7. Marinelli could be in contention for OW at NCAA's, but not Hodge.
  8. I could have been off on the spelling but that is how it's pronounced. He discussed it in an interview on our podcast a while back.
  9. Disagree with a lot of the takes on 157. Hayes was clearly the aggressor during the match. The only thing Hidlay did was dig an underhook and drive. He took zero risk.
  10. Good point on freestyle not being a direct translation. My point really comes down to that my mind isn't blown if Moore pulls it off. He nearly beat J'den Cox as a freshman. Sebastian Rivera beating Spencer however would be much more surprising to me. It's splitting hairs but its my take
  11. I would put Spencer over Nickal. 197 has Kollin Moore who just got a silver medal at U23's. He's certainly not the favorite, but i'd be far more surprised to see Spencer lose than if Moore beat Nickal.
  12. Bingo! The math on this actually checks out! If we take the best wrestlers from Iowa(3rd last year) and Michigan(4th last year) to make a super-team they would beat at least one of those teams.... barely... 125-Lee 27pts 133-Micic 19pts 141-Turk 3.5pts 149-Sorenson 13pts 157-Kemerer 16pts 165-Marinelli 13pts 174-Amine-15pts 184-Abounader 10pts 197-Wilcke 4pts 285-Coon 19pts The Iowa Wolverines would have scored 139.5pts, edging out Ohio States 134.5pts and falling just short of Penn State's 141.5. Feel free to check my math, i calculated all of their points by hand. This obviously doesn't account for certain variables but goes to show just how good OSU and PSU were last year.
  13. It think that has more to do with Lizak. He did not perform well on 1 hour weigh ins. The Lizak that lost to Nate in the dual would not have been able to beat Cruz at NCAAs
