Preposterously Early NCAA Predictions

Recommended Posts

Here we go, because I'm bored and I hadn't seen one lately.

125:. Lee.  I'm never betting against this guy again.

133:. Suriano if he can hold the weight, otherwise Fix.

141: Yianni.  He is going to torch the field.  The gap widens.

149: Sasso.  Yup.  My "bold" pick.

157: Hidlay.  It's his turn.

165: Joseph.  Gets revenge on Mekhi.

174: Hall. Because of my next prediction...

184: Zahid.

197: Moore.  He finally cashes in.

HWT:. Steveson.  (Please don't ban me) if he wrestles.  If not.  Cassar again.

Wick's career is over.  He tweeted that he had surgery and can't wrestle anymore.  Unless it was his brother.

It was his brother who hasn't been able to stay healthy his whole college career. Evan Wick retiring would be front page news on every wrestling site

My predictions will make some assumptions on oly shirts which ofc some are still unknown.

 

125 - arujau (lee does NOT redshirt)

133 - gross if 100% healthy suriano if he's at even 90% (fix and micic shirt)

141 - nick lee (eirmann and Yianni shirt)

149 - sasso makes a big statement in his first campaign. 149 is wide open next year

157 - hidlay's time has come though I think pantaleo will challenge him

165 - marinelli grits out a gold over a super tough field. Ofc at this weight he could also place 8th

174 - amine gets it done as a senior (hall shirts)

184 - zahid bumps up and wins number 3

197 - moore gets it done as a senior

285 - cassar wins his second (gable shirts)

Team prediction: penn state, iowa, tosu, osu

Hidlay is a 2xer.

I’m a VT fan, and if our guy isn’t in the finals, I’m pulling for hidlay. I like watching him. Technically sound and great personality on and off the mat.

Yes I am expecting some weight changes. 

Desanto, really?  Not saying it's impossible, but he may not even make their lineup.  And if he does then I'd put him behind Fix, Suriano, Gross, and Micic, at least.  I know some things may happen to thin that group out, but everything would need to fall in line just perfectly for him to have a decent shot at winning it.  I'll take Suriano.

Plus, DeSanto will have to stay out of trouble.  Although after Brands put his foot down and suspended him for that crucial Maryland match last season, I think he's learned his lesson.

Man I just don’t see Wick winning a title. He doesn’t have the offense to beat guys like Cenzo. 

Are you picking Mekhi over Hall? I haven’t thought about that potential matchup. Love it

Micic is redshirting 

Fix hasn’t decided yet. My guess is he redshirts

Sasso, Brayton Lee, Carr and Tanner Sloan will be some fresh blood this year that are capable of making big noise.

If Sasso and Brayton Lee are on your list then the redshirting freshman who beat them both at Midlands last year also belongs. Teemer is my #1 P4P incoming redshirt freshman. He’s gonna be a contender at either 157 or 149.

Are you sure Micic is red-shirting?  I thought he red-shirted at Northwestern before transferring, and then took an ORS his first year at UM. 

You can take multiple ORS. Everything I've heard has him redshirting. He has to make 57 kg and had trouble staying healthy the last two seasons, so I don't think they want to put a ton of strain on his body leading up to the Olympics.
