It wasn't funny the first time.

 

I only said it once...but to make your comment seem worthy...

 

Looks like I am getting some offers...I should rethink this...I was looking for a tougher forum room

 

There, now you make sense.

De La Riva to NDSU was officially announced yesterday. Not surprised, but disappointed he didn't stay in CA. I thought

Fresno State would have been a great option.

 

The kid has legit AA potential and he'll help NDSU right away. Not sure what happened last year, injuries, bad situation, etc. but his freshman year he was in top 15 and beat numerous top 20 guys including a guy that was #4 in the country at the time.

 

Looking at NDSU, i noticed they had several guys perform well at the US Open including numerous qualifiers for the WTT at the junior level and 1 at the senior level. Looks like some good things are happening over there.

I agree it is disappointing to see him leave the state.  Sometimes you do need a different environment to find the most success.  In regard to is freshman year, a lot of that success came at 157, a weight he never competed in outside of his red-shirt year.

Incorrect...He only competed at 157 his redshirt year and his Freshman year was 165 the entire time. Also placed at Midlands that year. I checked wrestlestat to make sure I'm not off base, and it shows some of his notable top 20 wins his freshman year at 165 as:

 

Cottrell

Subjeck

Fogarty

Torres

Romero

Sebastian

How is that much different than what I said.  I said he only competed at 157 his redshirt year, as in he weighed in and competed at 157 when was a red-shirt freshman.   I'll quote myself, "a lot of that success came at 157, a weight he never competed in outside of his red-shirt year."  

 

Arguing where he had the most success is subjective at best.  At 157 he won 3 open tournaments.  And you can counter by listing some of his quality wins.

No worries, I guess I misunderstood your point. Either way, I hope De La Riva can AA this year. He's one of the only guys left from the SJS section here in CA doing good things at the D1 level. I hope to see his teammate Colunga in the mix this year as well.

with this line-up and a good NCAA--they could be 2nd

They could win. It would require one of PSUs big 4 to not score nearly as many as projected plus some of the up and comers not performing, but it is possible

 

For example, if Nolf’s injury had been worse, tOSU would’ve won

 

Unlikely but 10 AAs is very difficult to overcome, even with 4 finalists

 

Don’t worry. I’m picking PSU

I almost wrote they could win also--but the PSU fan in me just wouldn't allow it--but very true--the wheels could fall off the PSU bus--stranger things have happened.

There is still a lot up in the air about who will be at what weight for OSU - If history is any indicator you will see the guys going down to the lowest weight they can reasonably manage.  The 2 biggest questions are can Jo Smith hold 157 and will Fix make 125.  If the answer is yes to both of those I think you may see this lineup:

 

125 Fix

133 Brock

141 Gfeller

149 Lewallen

157 Joe Smith

165 Rodgers

174 Jacob Smith

184 Geer

197 Weigel

Hwt White

 

This is a line up that could compete for the national title even with PSU

Agree, still going with PSU but this team could win it.
