Pletcher enters to Johny Cash?

Pletcher will run up the score in this match. Probably win by 3, maybe 4 points.

Lol, Ryan coaxes a point out of the refs for a Pletcher escape.

Pletcher is known for a lot of close wins.  The Dean Heil of the Buckeyes.

Bucks will be led this year by the four M's--Myles, Moore, McKenna and Micah.  Add in Pletcher and you have five solid AA types and 3 guys with legit national champ aspirations.  Hayes remains a talent but he is overranked to start the season and will struggle against bigger, stronger 157's.  (sort of like Jason Johnstone about ten years ago).  Campbell remains solid but unspectacular...and he's already limping.  Romero has athleticism and power but a long way to go to contend for AA honors.  He's a project but the talent is there.  Mead and Traub bookend the lineup and while they'll give an effort, they are only modestly competitive especially in the BT.  Look for Heinselman and Singletary to enter the lineup sooner than later and possibly Ethan Smith as well at 174 if Ryan tires of Campbell.  

This Buckeye squad is in transition but still has a good shot to finish in the 3-5 range at NCAA's.  The good news is they have Sasso, Hoffman, Kinner, Heinselman and RoJo in redshirt and an amazing group arriving in the fall (Kirkvliet, Kharchla, Jo Decatur and Super 32 champ D'Emilio plus Ja Decatur).  Their new facility is almost finished and their RTC has added Dennis Hall as they look to expand their Greco presence.  Tom Ryan loves to talk and takes a beating for it in some corners but he backs it up with fundraising, recruiting and program innovation.  Bucks are currently the standard bearers when it comes to showing how much more a D1 program can be than just the team on the mat.

Are either of the Koontz's in contention at 125?  I don't remember them wrestling off, I know it's a different style but one of them make a age level world Greco team over the summer. 

One of them made the finals of the MSU Open and lost a decision to teammate Malik Heinselman.  Ryan seems to like them along with fellow Wisconsinite Fritz Schierl.  All three are being groomed to compete for future world teams in Greco.
