All-Star Classic - What do you want?

Recommended Posts

The All-Star COULD be one of the biggest events of the year.  I know it's hard with wrestlers not always being able to commit, but here's what I would like to see.

 

125: Gilman vs. Dance

 

Dance always shows well in the early-season.

 

133: Clark vs. Tomasello

 

Fireworks baby!

 

141: Heil vs. Meredith

 

Both earned it.

 

149: Sorenson v. Mayes

 

You'll see

 

157:  Retherford v. Nolf

 

Don't know if the rules allow this, but if so, man would we all love to see this.  Cael has always seemed like a forward thinker.  It'd be unique and deserved to be honest.  

 

165:  Martinez v. Isaac Jordan

 

Isaac is stronger than he looks.

 

174: BoJo vs. BoNick

 

NCAA finals preview

 

184: Gabe Dean vs. Mark Martin

 

We'll get to see where Martin stands

 

197: Pfarr vs. Downey

 

Downey could end up in the finals.  Always a throw away.

 

285:  J'Den Cox vs. Kyle Snyder

 

Cox is NOT going to be holding his weight down this season.  He's already stated he'll be playing football in the spring.  Snyder isn't the biggest Heavy out there anyway.

I always like to see wrestlers from different conferences matched up who are likely to not meet during the regular season; keeping that as a guideline:

 

125 Gilman vs. Dance

133 Tomasello vs. Brock

141 Heil vs. McKenna

149 Retherford vs. Mayes

157 Nolf vs. Palacio

165 Martinez vs. Lewis

174 BoJo vs. Epperly

184 Boyd vs. Martin

197 Cox vs. Dean

285 Snyder vs. Walz

Don't know if this was posted here yet - but I just saw on Earl Smith's D1CW Forum that Daniel Lewis of Mizzou has been announced for 165...

I agree with the sentiment that getting matchups unlikely to happen in the regular season are preferable. That being said, this is what I would like to see:

 

125: Gilman vs. Dance

133: Richards vs. Brock

141: Heil vs. McKenna

149: Sorenson vs. Mayes

157: Palacio vs. Smith

165: Martinez vs. Lewis

174: Jordan vs. Epperly

184: Dean vs. Martin

197: Pfarr vs. Downey

285: Cox vs. Snyder

Seriously - why would Cox wrestle in this?  He shouldn't wrestle until January at least.

Because his teammates are going and he enjoys competing, that's why he does it.  He won't sit first semester, guaranteed. He probably wouldn't have made the trip on his own, but since others are going, I'm sure he's open to seeing if his match-up would interest him in some way.

Is Cox currently training?

Normally I would assume Cox would attend if invited, but given his knee injury a while back I wouldn't be surprised if he declined to make sure he's healthy and back to full form before competing again.
