Seth Gross- Not a 2018-2019 Finalist

Recommended Posts

Great guy, hard to say anything against him. But... I don't think he would have made the finals last year. 

Based on the AFC Duals I think Suriano would have beat him in a tight match with a TD being the difference. Probably a similar story with Fix. Gross just didn't look clean enough to stop those guy from taking him down.

I do think he'll make the finals this year and do very well. His style matches up well with the rest of the weight class. At this point, I think that the biggest threat for him this year will be Gomez. 

I know it was kickoff weekend and he has plenty of time to prove me wrong, but I think he's very fortunate that Suriano and Fix aren't around.

Also two years ago when Gross bumped to take on Bryce Meredith he was able to hang with Bryce from neutral the entire match. You may be underestimating Gross’ ability to scramble a little bit.  

I’m honestly not sure what the outcome of those matches would’ve been though, just playing devils advocate.

Chris Bono will have him ready to go. Wisconsin is on the way up and Gross will benefit from another year working with his Coach as they set a good example for the team.

That’s a good point. I liked Wisconsin and hope to see them continue to succeed this year

I agree that both Suriano and Fix were better from neutral, but the real question would have been how they faired on bottom for 2 minutes when Gross chose top. I really wish we could have seen that.

That is true. I still think Suriano would rack up enough points to survive any trouble on top. Fix maybe not and would have to decide the match on top/bottom. If you had to make stance, do you think Gross could ride Fix out?

I don’t think so. I think Gross may be able to ride for a little bit but not for an entire period. Fix is just so explosive. I think the closest we got to see to that was Phillippi vs Fix last year. Fix was able to get off bottom in that match if I remember correctly. But Gross is an elite scrambler. I’d love to see Fix and Gross scramble. It would be a heck of a match.
