Let's talk about Mckenna

Recommended Posts

McKenna is a different wrestler since beating Lee.  He's doing a very nice Logan Stieber imitation.  

 

Yea, I thought Lee was a bad match up for him, similar to Thorn. Seems like he has been on a roll since that win. Will be interesting to see how he does against some of the other top guys but right now I wouldn't count him out against anyone.

The thing that I think has really helped McKenna is scoring early. McKenna is so solid defensively and then not having to chase an opponent to score puts him in a better position to win. If he goes down early and needs to score to come back, it makes it very difficult against guys who can scramble like Meredith, Eierman, or Yianni.

McKenna had a great tournament, and has looked amazing as of late, but let's not pretend he won a tough bracket just because it's the Big 10.  

 

Seeding has to be:

 

1 - Meredith

2 - Eierman

3 - Yianni

4 - McKenna

5 - Jack

6 - Heil

 

I agree with that seeding. Crazy that the two time champ could very well not get a top 5 seed.

nobody scored on McKenna at Big Tens...that is impressive

look at killdozer's list above, how many in top 10 were at b10? What McKenna did was impressive & Carr is getting better, but McKenna didnt face any top guys.

Let’s also not forget McKenna just RECENTLY dominated then #2 Jack 6-2, who has wins over many of the top guys listed. The Big Ten results are just part of the equation. McKenna is on fire no doubt about it.

Love that McKenna is opposite Eierman and Yanni. Although Meridith is the #1, McKenna did beat Meridith at Cliff Keen last year 3-1 so not only does he have past success, he’ll be familiar with his style. He’s gotta a tough quarter again with Jack but obviously just beat him as well 6-2. Jack has to get past a red hot Brent Moore though in round of 16, who just beat Jack for the ACC championship.
