Parris vs Gable S., who ya' got?

Recommended Posts

Well - given that Gable ducked Parris when Michigan wrestled Minnesota, I am pretty sure they will only wrestle twice this year.  Having said that - the biggest problem Parris will have is that his domination on the mat will be lessened by Gable's ability to keep this match from being decided from there - Gable is a take down specialist - similar to how Kyle Snyder was - and if Parris is not able to take Gable down and defend against Gable's quickness it will be a long 7 minutes for Parris. 

I would not have thought Parris could pull off the fireman's carry on Cass but if he can get Gable down with that, he will have a big edge. 

Should be fun and should be in the Big 10 finals and NCAA finals for all to see!

 

 

You are right. 2-0 then.

At Big 10's - Gable by 1-2 Takedowns.

In NCAA Finals - Parris with a dramatic takedown at the end to win it. 

Gable, the most highly touted heavyweight since Mocco (or maybe even more highly touted), goes 0-2 in his quest for the NCAA Title.  

This then sets up the 2021 & 2022 Seasons as "showdown central".  

(Enter Kerkvliet...) dum dum dum... (that's supposed to be dramatic sounds, not calling it dumb).

Cohlton Schultz will be in the mix as well.

Gable didn't wrestle in either of the two duals he was scheduled for that weekend as I recall so it is not as if he just said no to parris. He (like Lee) has also been wrestling much better guys than parris or cass on the sr circuit

Not to mention his schedule was to have just returned from Rome, but for reasons unknown he pulled out. There was no expectation of him wrestling in the Michigan dual anyway.

True.  Although we did know the Friday before he was to wrestle in Rome that he wasn't going.

I understand that. But obviously something kept him from going. 
 

Just get a chuckle out of that part of it, plus he didn’t wrestle that Friday.....but since he didn’t wrestle Sunday it’s automatically (I refuse to even say the word anymore)

For the record Gable beat Hilger from UW on 1/10/20 and then did not wrestle the following weekend against Michigan. 

Gable tweaked a hammy or glute during the Hilger match.  You can see him hobbling during/after the match.

I think once we see Gable wrestle Cass this coming weekend, we'll have a better idea of how Gable and Mason will match up.  

Mason clearly moved better than Cass this Saturday, but it's a given that Gable is an amazing athlete with a similar skillset.

As noted, Cassar beat Steveson last year largely by shutting down his offense and finding the right openings later in the match.  Parris will need all his athleticism to do this.

Gable over Parris 3-2 at Bigs

Parris over Gable 5-3 at NCAAS 

Parris has great straight on shots but he lacks the lateral movement and footwork to compete with Gable on scrambles and re-attacks.  That will be the difference.

I will take Steveson, 8-5. Parris is undoubtably athletic, but Gable is a notch above. 
 

Parris aggressiveness will get him a take down of Steveson. Which will be an accomplishment in its own right. However his aggressiveness will get him taken down 3 times or so when Gable counters. 
 

Like others have stated, if your going to beat Gable you need him to gas and take advantage.

Steveson’s TD skills are a level above his competitors. His mat skills are on a par with the other top heavies or less. Cassiopi for example scores more points in top position and registers more pins than Steveson.
If Cass or Paris can keep things in the first period they may be able to win out against Steveson on the mat.
