Lehigh vs Michigan this weekend

Recommended Posts

This dual, in my opinion, is the best dual of the weekend and the best dual of the early season. A fw other duals seem to be getting talked about more for this weekend, but this looks like the best to me.

 

125: Cruz, Lehigh vs ?, Michigan. Doubtful Michigan pulls Mattin's shirt this early for a Novemeber dual, even if he does look like their best option right now. Assume it's Assad, win for Cruz with bonus a possability

 

133: Parker, Lehigh vs Micic, Michigan. #2 vs #3 in the country, thats a pretty good lower weight match up. Parker must be feeling pretty good after that win over Brock, he's wrestling great and this is probably a close match but I still think Micic takes it.

 

141: Karam, Lehigh vs Profaci, Michigan. Definitely a toss up match here, both guys unranked, could see this one going either way.

 

149: Schuyler, Lehigh vs Amine, Michigan. Identical to 141 IMO, a pair of unranked guys in a toss up match. Both matches could be big for the dual.

 

157: Brown, Lehigh vs Pantaleo, Michigan. Pantaleo is a clear favorite here, an All-American and junior world team member, but he has taken a couple tough early season losses. Maybe a slight chance at an upset here but hard not to pick Pantaleo.

 

165: Walter, Lehigh vs Massa, Michigan. Walter is pretty good but Massa is elite and on another level, Massa wins.

 

174: Kutler, Lehigh vs Amine, Michigan. These next two matches are where it gets really interesting. Kutler was ranked near the top of 157 last year before having weight issues, now hes up two weights to 174. We keep hearing he's going to be great this year and this is his first chance to show he's on that level at 74. Amine was 4th last year at NCAA's, thats where he's ranked while Kutler is ranked 6th. Obvious toss up match, Amine favored on paper but I'm taking Kutler.

 

184: Preisch, Lehigh vs Abounader, Michigan. Two of the best who are yet to AA, Big 10 champ Abounader and Preisch similiar to Kutler had a great year last year and is now up a weight after a disappointing NCAA's. Aboundader ranked slightly higher, another big test at the new weight for Preisch who took out Zavatsky last week and I think he does it again this week, give me Preisch.

 

197: Weiler, Lehigh vs Beazley, Michigan. The 6th year senior vs the freshmen. Beazley a returning AA clearly the favorite, Weiler another one for Lehigh moving up a weight. Will be interesting to see if the freshmen can hang with the senior or pull the upset, but for now safe bet is Beazley.

 

285: Wood, Lehigh vs Coon, Michigan. ANother Michigan seniuor vs Lehigh freshmen, but unlike 197 I dont see any chance the freshmen can pull an upset here. Wood is tough and is a ranked wrestler right now, but like Massa at 65 Coon is just on a different level.

 

So, depending how you view it, there could be between 4-6 tossup matches in this dual. I have Michigan as the favorite, they are probably favored on paper in more individual matches, but a win by Lehigh wouldnt be a complete shocker either.

The OP doesn’t know Lehigh’s lineup very well. Has incorrect starters at 149 and 165. Perhaps 197 as well, but I think Weiler will go.

Hmmm.... Does anyone know Lehigh's lineup very well?  Looks like they may have been sitting a few starters vs. Edinboro.  Will they all go today?  And who will be the starters at 149, 165?

How do we watch this?  And is it 1PM central or eastern?

 

I think Patriot League Network is carrying this - https://watchstadium.com/network/patriot-league-network/

 

And the match is at Lehigh, so I'd assume the 1:00 PM start (per the Lehigh match notes) is EST.

One would think, but the link itself says 2pm. Screwy and conflicting.
