Mueller back for UVa?

Recommended Posts

Saw mention on another thread that Jack Mueller might be pulled from RS and back at 125 for UVa. This kinda sorta confirms it.

given field at 125 this year I think he's a legit finalist contender. AA as a true freshman two years ago at the weight and then Rd of 12 last year at 133. 

doesn't seem like he'll be able to build up much of a match count at this point though

Why worry about match count?  All he needs is eight matches to be eligible for Silver standard: 5 matches to be included in the coaches' rank; and 8 matches to be eligible for win pct.

Thanks for info. I was thinking he needed 17.

He has 15 duals total on their schedule that he can compete at for this year (assuming 4 duals @ Va Duals)  - if he hits a weekend open tournament he could easily get to 17 matches

if 125 is a tough cut, why bother to attempt to reach 17?  employ the Fausz strategy from last year:  no back-to-back weigh-ins, and no Fri-Sun dual weekends.

get in eight bouts, making sure at least one of which is within 30 days of the final allocation, and qualify the spot for the conference.

The "Fausz Strategy" not working so well this year for Fausz.  First bout after the one-hour weigh-in at South Beach Day 1 was a LBF to Cole Verner of Wyoming in 2:20.

"The Cowboys started the first dual of the day on a high note as Cowboy junior Cole Verner pinned No. 7 Sean Fausz of NC State in the first period to take a 6-0 lead. Verner got the takedown over Fausz just 40 seconds into the bout, before getting the pin in 2:20."
