Suriano Out

Recommended Posts

Saw this on another forum. Bad luck for NS but worse luck for Rutgers. I hope we don’t get the rep that the school on the Raritan is a graveyard for wrestlers.

 

Dude just has no luck for the postseason.  Maybe he needs to go on the Snyder schedule and just wait for Big Tens before his first match next year.

The post on the PSU board is not to be trusted. Not saying it isn't true, just that this specific source is a known troll on stuff like this.

A lot of what you read on the PSU board can’t be trusted, like any other message board.

Nick Suriano would have to be catastrophically injured to be "out" right now. Wouldn't Goodale want to use every second of time before the tournament for Nick to heal up and get cleared by the medical staff?

I guess could be either way... article on 3/3 says precautionary and will be ready... also says aggravated a lower body injury...

 Nick Suriano medical forfeited out of the Big Ten Championships semifinal round as a "precautionary" measure and will be ready for the NCAA Championships in two weeks, Rutgerscoach Scott Goodale said.

"He'll be ready (for nationals)," Goodale told NJ Advance Media. "He needed probably another week."

Suriano, the nation's top-ranked 125-pounder, wrestled his first bout in a month in the quarterfinal round after missing the Scarlet Knights' last four dual meets of the season due to illness. Additionally, Goodale revealed Suriano has also been battling a "lower body injury," and he aggravated the injury during his 9-2 quarterfinal win over Illinois' Travis Piotrowski, although it is not believed to be an issue.

the he aggravated the injury is not in quotes, so who knows if Goodale actually said such.  But given the issue, if he did in fact aggravate it then that's not good with short time to NCAA.

Who gets this spot? Hildebrandt from Central Michigan or Baughman from Cornell.

Who’s to say that the NCAA was notified in time for them to make the change and re-draw the brackets since they come out today? I thought last year they re-drew the bracket but it was too late to add a replacement for Suriano.

if a medical issue out of B10 qualifiers this might then go to Kuhn who finished 11th (3rd in the mini 2nd chance bracket).  Might be why PSU fans would be interested in this issue.

As I recall they kept saying he would be ready. And I think the injury replacement time is still the Monday before.

Kuhn is not next. Pretty sure they don't take the next man from the Big10, they just take the next best at large.

I believe there's a point in time (not sure when the cut off time) where if injury (broken leg etc.) and can't wrestle then the B10 replaces wrestler. That's why they wrestled the mini bracket for weights that had 8 AQ spots (141, 157 & 184).

The spot doesn't go to the next finisher from the Big Ten. It would go to whoever was the next guy in line in the at-large pool.  They've told that person who they are at each weight so they can continue to hold their weight and practice but they don't announce it.

That's incorrect. The purpose of the mini bracket was to determine who would finish "one spot short of qualifying" for at large purposes.

If that's true seems a little silly to wrestle that entire mini bracket as there's already a process in place to determine the next at large, but guess that's how the B10 does it now.

The spot is open to any 125 lbers. who didn't qualify but still weigh under 160 lbs. a week after their qualifying tourney. There may be none.

Kuhn finished 11th, there were 10 auto qualifiers for 125 in the B10.
