  1. Dunno Imar handled him pretty easily today and its not like he's much older than Nolf, 1 year I think. You could argue the Imar controlled all three matches and won 2 decisively. I mean I would have picked Nolf over Imar at the beginning of the day and been dead wrong. Maybe Nolf is injured? I'm not convinced his talent translates as well to Free as some would presume. Anyone know why Nolf went 74 instead of 70kg?
  2. Hmm..expected a better 3rd match from Nolf.
  3. MyMar vs Heflin in next round should be interesting...
  4. Bo is crazy talented offensively but when he has lost it has almost always been because he has gotten thrown to his back. See the MyMar matches and his FS losses to Heflin. If he's smart enough to avoid those tie ups then I think he has a "chance".

    The officiating in that match was highly questionable and could have easily been called in Sasso's favor. Teemer didn't even make it to the finals this weekend. Even so Teemer is legit and will do very very well next year. But ya the Yianni comparisons are stretching it. I think Sasso could be as successful as say Mekhi Lewis was last year, i.e. take a few early season losses but be right in the mix for a Nati come NCAA's. Not saying he will win it all next year, but he definitely has a shot.
  6. Kharchla was just named HS wrestler of the year by Intermat. http://intermatwrestle.com/articles/21795
  7. Quite a few of those guys won't start next year... Stickley has not shot at 141. It will be Kinnar or Hayes if he can make 141. Hayes has no shot at 157, just not big enough and his interest level this year at the weight reflected this (one possibility would be Sasso at 157 and Hayes at 149, but still unlikely). 157 will likely be Mattox. Campbell has no eligibility left, 165 will be Romero or Kharchla. Rocky Jordan has not wrestled all year and has been in a boot and thus very unlikely at 174 next year. Will be Ethan Smith. I would love to see Kerk at HWT but all indications are that he will RS and it will be Singletary.
  8. As I said, I agree with Fix...he destroyed everyone at 2107 Junior Wolds and has beaten some very good senior wrestlers. I'm an tOSU guy but McKenna has no realistic shot at beating Oliver, Stieber or whoever he is competing against. Now if the OP would have said Eirmann....then maybe as he has beaten Stieber. Reenan is not on the OP list so your pt is moot. I'm responding to the OP list.
  9. This is like the question of whether Alabama would beat the worst NFL team.....the answer is a definite no in both cases. The over/under on the NCAA winners would be like 0.5 and I would probably bet the under. Fix would have the only "realistic" shot IMO.
  10. 149 and 157 are wide open. Look for RS Freshman studs like Sasso, Teemer and Carr to challenge immediately.
  11. Zero chance IMO Hayes goes 157 again. Simply not big enough and he is a disinterested wrestler at this pt. His only chance to make the lineup IMO is to cut back to 141 and wrestle off Kinnar. More likely 157 will be Mattox. Good chance Heinselman RS's next year as he was tiny and out muscled this year at 125. I could see Jordan Decatur for 1 year at 125 and then RS the next and ends up for 3 yrs at 133. Romero is unlikely at 165. Don't think he has a chance to beat out Kharchla next year. Ryan loves burning RS's and I could easily see this happening. Kerkvliet will be interesting and a likely AA if he starts but I get the feeling for various reasons he does RS.
  12. Still... it would be a lot worse if he were the 6 or 7 seed in which case he would face Tariq Wilson or Micic in rd 2.
  13. Pletcher second rd vs Bridges won't be easy
  14. Having such a strict formula and eliminating the human eye test is a recipe for poor seedings. We saw that when Michael Carr was the #1 in the BTN at 141 . I laughed at that one when he was seeded above Nick Lee and Joey McKenna.
  15. NCAA fail...anyone picking Derek White the #1 seed to win it all?
  16. "Trainer" decision....*cough*
  17. Wonder twins powers activate! Form of...an ice Merkle!
  18. I don't for one second think Rasheed had any part of it. Athletes want to compete and I don't think Rasheed is any different. Coaches decision IMO.
  19. Great kid and amazing wrestler and if it wasn't for the even more amazing Bo Nickal he would likely be wrestling for his 3rd NCAA title and in the conversation for the Hodge.
  20. Ditto. Guessing this was Cael's decision to not give MyMar a look at Rasheed until NCAA and I understand the logic behind it. Still, its a very bad look for wrestling in general especially on national TV. As someone else said...not good for the sport. I can only imagine someone not too familiar with the sport tuning in to the BTN and saying...WTF??
