Montorie Bridges

Recommended Posts

I’m certainly biased as this is my hometown team... But why is nobody talking about Montorie Bridges? He has beat two top five guys this season. He just majored Terao, after beating Brock his last time out.

Great topic. I think a lot of people give Brock a pass on that loss, and therefore give Bridges an asterisk on the 1-point win, because Brock gave up 6 points on a very poorly executed throw due to overconfidence or perhaps altitude-induced temporary stupor. Majoring Terao 10-2 as a follow-up is a big deal though. Did anyone see the match?

 

Bridges had one hell of a weekend, going 4-0 and beating not only Terao but also Zach Sherman (UNC), who has been wrestling very well overall.

He has certainly been a surprise. Branch was very high on him throughout the recruiting process. I think out of HS he was ranked 10-15 in his weight class, which is a typical top tier recruit for a team like wyo.

Yeah the whole ok state team is getting a pass because it’s the first time they’ve ever competed at elevation. Brock certainly did out wrestle him after Montorie went up 6-0. I’m pretty sure he got taken down four or five times, but he did fend off takedowns for the final minute of the match. Which I think most upsets happen in the last minute rather than the first

 

I figured he would lose to terao and Sherman was a toss up match. He is certainly overly exceeding expectations.

Definitely a sleeper as the end of the season approaches.  I give Bridges credit for keeping the win as opposed to giving Brock "a pass".

Brock's supposed to be a top talent and title contender, things happen and yada yada but credit has to be given.  The best of the best either do not make those types of mistakes or account for them by completing the comeback.

 

Next time they meet like many I'd pick Brock but that doesn't diminish the fact that Bridges earned that win.

Altitude Schmaltitude.

Heil proved in his last outing that maybe Jack/Meredith, etal are actually just that good.  Something we've suspected all along.

We will see where he is at on January 18th when he wrestles Seth Gross in their dual. 

 

A win is a win so he beat Brock.  I would take Brock in the rematch though.  That being said this young man has a great Fresh. season going!
