    2017 184lbs NCAAs

    IMO Myles was still growing into the weight and just couldn't find an answer to Brooks' strength and hard hand fight. Looked like he was wrestling a brick wall each time they matched up, and Sammy would just stalk forward with a russian or hard collar tie.

    Suriano vs Micic

    Yeah. While we're at it let's get a Nolf/Nickal matchup going.

    Suriano vs Micic

    If Micic comes out and kills him, that Suriano post-Vegas interview is going to be even more hilarious in hindsight. Can you imagine the meltdown Suriano would have if Micic ducks him at the dual?

    Never Been Pinned

    This isn't exceptionally uncommon. There are hundreds of guys that have done this. There are probably 50-100 guys in the NCAA right now that haven't been pinned yet. Never given up bonus points would be a much more exclusive accomplishment.

    What were the Indiana coaches thinking?

    I was being tongue-in-cheek about them prepping for his next matchup with Ashnault. They know very well who Ashnault is, they thought Silva had a better chance of getting out without getting turned than winning the match on his feet. Didn't work this time around.

    What were the Indiana coaches thinking?

    Maybe it's just me, but when you're a 3-7 wrestler, I think you improve wherever you can.

    What were the Indiana coaches thinking?

    Obviously they felt picking down gave Silva the best chance to win. It almost worked... I mean, he did get an escape, right? Maybe he was just feeling out the position so he can get the real upset when at counts at Big 10's... lol. Serious improvements this year in Bloomington. I don't really feel the need to be overly critical of a decision that backfired in a February dual.

    Joseph vs Marinelli

    There's a clear top 3... but both White and Massa are more than capable of knocking off any of the others.
  9. The right time to apply it is when someone is obviously ducking multiple matches, or has seen limited action throughout the course of the season. Cenzo has wrestled more matches than Marinelli this year, and has plenty of quality wins to justify keeping his #1 rank and seed.
  10. Joseph is undefeated with wins over #4, #5, #6, and #7. I don't hate the concept, but this is the wrong time to apply it. I guess I can buy Marinelli as the 1 seed if he beats Wick again, but saying Cenzo should be the #3 seed regardless of the Wick/Marinelli outcome is going way too far IMO.

    Who is going to screw up seeding this year?

    I think he will. If he isn't, it would be somewhat unprecedented. I looked back 6 or 7 years and couldn't find a single example of an undefeated wrestler from a major program being seeded outside the top 8. My guess is Vito comes in at #6, worst case scenario #8. If he's #8, that's a bad scenario for whichever of Lee or Rivera gets the 1 seed.

    Pletcher loses to #15 wrestler but doesn't drop in rankings

    The issue is that RBY has by far the weakest resume. He has 1 meaningful win, and it was TB rideouts at that. Head to head comparisons can go on indefinitely. Lizak beat Thornton who beat RBY who beat Pletcher who beat Lizak who beat Bridges who beat Myers who beat Phillipi who beat Fix... etc. etc. etc.

    Pletcher loses to #15 wrestler but doesn't drop in rankings

    RBY has faced 3 ranked opponents. He's lost to two of them, and beaten Pletcher in overtime. I'd be fine with Gomez over Pletcher, but we're splitting hairs there, and I don't think you can justify putting RBY over Gomez from a ranking perspective.

    Who is going to screw up seeding this year?

    Guys likely to be seeded 13th or higher that I think could knock off a top 4 seed on Thursday night: 141) Demas, Brock 149) Lugo 157) Rahmani 184) Caffey 285) Thomas, Elam
  15. steamboat_charlie v2

    Who is going to screw up seeding this year?

    Won't he be at top 6 seed? He's 15-0 at 125, and he's likely to win out and be a 22-0 conference champ at the weight.

    Bo good, 197 bad

    Bo Nickal not elite? In what world...
  18. Ok boys, better late than never. Quick refresher on the rules: Procedure 1) Pick the wrestler (any weight) you think will go farthest into the season without a loss. 2) Pick a back-up, same criterion. Rules 1) Your choices must not have been previous All Americans (not just last year). 2) Your choices are out: a) if they lose, forfeit, or default; b) if they do not compete in one of the duals or in tournaments in which at least five starters from their team are competing. (beginning now, for example, RBY skips the Keystone open but the rest of the team goes, he's out) 3) You cannot pick the same two wrestlers in the same order as someone who has already picked. 4) A loss to a non-collegian does not count. Standings/Elimination 1) If your starter loses, you are eliminated if any remaining starters are still alive. 2) If your backup loses, and someone else has both their start and backup still alive, you are eliminated. OFFICIAL PICKS BEGIN TODAY (11/14) AT NOON EASTERN. PLEASE DON'T POST YOUR PICK BEFORE THAT TIME. PICKS CLOSE CLOSE TOMORROW, 11/15, AT 5:00PM ET.

    Fair enough. Your first post was so condescending I had to rib you at least a little bit.

    I know you're joking... but Nickal is actually a 5.5 point favorite.
