Semis: predict and root for

Recommended Posts

125:

Predict: Rivera, Lee

Root for: Mueller, Lee. I have always enjoyed watching Mueller and since I'm rooting for Lee to win it all, I'd rather he face Mueller.

 

133:

Predict: Fix, Micic

Root for: Pletcher, Micic. Some movies don't deserve a sequel. Fix/Suriano 2 would ruin the finals of our best event of the year.

 

141:

Predict: Yianni, McKenna

Root for: Yianni, McKenna. Some movies deserve a sequel. This one is at the top of the list. 

 

149:

Predict: Ashnault, Jordan

Root for: Kolodzik, Jordan. Kolodzik in the finals would be a symbol of all the great things happening at Princeton wrestling. The Jordans have done a ton for wrestling. They deserve a champion.

 

157:

Predict: Nolf, Berger

Root for: Nolf, Young. Nolf is one of my favorites of all time. Young is on a Cinderella run and it would be incredible to see him make it all the way to the beheading by Nolf. 

 

165: 

Predict: Lewis, Joseph

Root for: Wick, Shields. I have a soft spot for lanky guys who aren't incredible athletes because they epitomize the "sport for every body" and I was once like that myself. Shields is a great guy and role model. Been a fan ever since he did something incredibly nice for my nephew.

 

174:

Predict: Hall, Valencia

Root for: Amine, Lewis. Mr. Amine looks like he's about to go into a coma every time they zoom in on him in the stands. I want to see him smile. Valencia is going to have a long and illustruous wrestling future. Let Lewis get one this year. Zahid will barely care many years from now.

 

184:

Predict: Martin, Foster

Root for: Dean, Ness. I was a huge fan of the Destroyer of Worlds so his brother gets my rooting manna as well. Ness for the same Cinderella reason as Young.

 

197: 

Predict: Nickal, Moore

Root for: Brucki, Weigel. I want to see someone try to pick Bo up like a fallen baby. As an unabashed John Smith fanboy, I have to root for one of his guys every year, and by process of elimination, it's Weigel this year.

 

HWT:

Predict: White, Steveson

Root for: Wood, Steveson. Lehigh is one of the most storied programs in the sport and a wrestling gem. We should all root for one of their guys to win it all every once in a while. The reformed Steveson looks all business and I'm a big fan again.

I thought Berger was the one taking heads? I have Young in this match. He looks so solid right now.

Love the concept: the picks vs want to dynamic...

125 Lee over Muller. Want to:Picc

133: Fix over Suriano. Want to: Fix ( no I’m not a poke fan)

141: Yanni over McKenna. Want to: Lee

149: Jordan over Ashnault. Want to: Jordan 

157: Nolf over Berger. Want to: does it matter?  But yeah would like to see Nolf close it out. 

165: Lewis over Cenzo: Want to: Lewis

174: Hall over Valencia. Want to: Valencia

184: MyMar over Ness. Want to: Ness, just like what’s happening on Tobacco Road. 

197: see 157

285: Steveson over White. Don’t have a want to at all  but Steveson needs to send Cassar a Christmas card for waking him up
