Hastings' record was not the best but he pushed through an ankle sprain that nagged him throughout the latter part of the season and finished sixth at the Big 12 Championships before earning an at-large bid.  And even if he was a major underdog on paper, Hastings said he felt good about his first-round matchup against the No. 4 seed, Purdue’s Dylan Lydy, whom he defeated last season for the first ranked win of his career. trib.com

Re: Colbray - I can't see a guy that lost to Brandon Martino on 1/31/20 making a run like that.

Nobody saw Brewer making the run he did either.

What?  You mean 1 loss Cody Brewer?  Several people I know, including myself had him pegged as champ that season.

Colbray beat the underdogs and beat the favored wrestler as he had previously done.  The stars aligned for him.  Lydy would be in the semis if history had not repeated itself with Hastings.

Are you going to have him upset Mark Hall too?

Brewer was a 2X AA at the time (4X AA) and had 1 loss that season that he avenged.  He was a clear favorite to win the title that year, in fact John Smith and Zalesky also predicted he was going to win.  

He was a total stud.

Ouch. Called out.

I guess perhaps what I meant was the opposite.

It is well understood that nobody was beating Brewer that weekend. It wasn't thought to be that way going into the weekend.

 

I thought Inhad a point but I lead wrong with it. Sorry.

Lydy's match appeared to be headed into overtime, sitting tied 1-1 after both wrestlers escaped to start the second and third periods. However Lydy began creating action in the final minute of the third, nearly getting a takedown in front of the Arizona State bench and beating the buzzer with a takedown on the edge to seal the win.  purduesports.com  Lydy was fired up after winning his forth match in a row following his opening round loss.

Saturday Morning Results

AA 7th

(5) Bryce Steiert (UNI) 27-3 Over (9) Anthony Mantanona (OU) 21-7 By Pin 5:52**

 

 

AA 5th

(4) Dylan Lydy (PUR) 31-2 Over (13) Samuel Colbray (ISU) 18-9 By MD 14 - 4*

Lydy had one of the best seasons in program history, amassing a 31-2 overall record which stands as the No. 3 single-season win percentage all-time at Purdue. He won both the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational and Midlands Championships, becoming the first Boilermaker to win both tournaments, and went on to take third at the Big Ten Championships. His 111 career victories are tied for eighth most all-time at Purdue, while he finished 13th in the record books with 267 career takedowns.  He was nominated for Flo Wrestling's most improved award this season.  He posted double digit losses in his first three seasons before going 31-2 this season.  He was knocking on the AA door for the last two years and it looked like he’d leave nothing to doubt this year coming in as the #4 seed.  After that opening round loss, Lydy rattled off five wins in a row before a narrow defeat to Jordan Kutler.  Lydy ended his career with a dominating win over Colbray.

Saturday Night Results - Finals

15862195483930986-3107878737.gif

Hall

The calm-and-collected senior, a three-time All-American and the top-ranked wrestler in his weight class, doesn’t feel much pressure these days. He’s expected a national title for four straight seasons — winning once and finishing twice as the runner-up.

Teammate Nick Lee shook his head when asked if Hall has shown any signs of unease this tournament. “I probably get more nervous for any of Mark’s matches than Mark does,” he added.  Lee wasn’t even sure the last time Hall appeared nervous. Maybe, he joked, Hall was a bit nervous Monday night when a few friends played the Mafia card game and Lee caught on to Hall’s bluff. But otherwise?  Well, Lee said after some thought, Hall has never had pre-match butterflies — at least not since Lee, a junior, has been a Nittany Lion.  “He’s right,” Hall added. “I don’t really get nervous too much because I’ve had a lot of experience.”

So when was the last time Hall’s legs felt like Jell-O on a wrestling mat? You’d have to go back to the time he didn’t have experience — when head coach Cael Sanderson removed his redshirt as a freshman in 2017 and Hall was preparing for his first collegiate dual bout. Against Iowa at Carver-Hawkeye.  “The timing wasn’t great for him, but it also was maybe a blessing for him,” Sanderson recalled, alluding to Hall’s 7-5 loss to Alex Meyer. “He ended up winning nationals, so it worked out.”  Added Hall, with a laugh: “I couldn’t feel my legs. Like bottom half from my hips down, it was like Jell-O. It was bad.”

Mark Hall seems dialed in and even relaxed for this match with Kem.  Hall shared "Being a big 10 matchup, we've already wrestled twice this year.  I prepared the same for this match as the last ones.  I came into PSU ready and tough.  VJ and Cael have helped prepare me for the tight matches and I know if I wrestle hard, the result will take care of itself.  There are no more chances and you will see me leave my all on the mat."

Kemerer

Michael Kemerer finished third in the national meet in 2017, fourth in 2018. He missed all of last season with an injury, but came back this season and won all of his regular-season matches, including a victory over Penn State's Mark Hall. But Hall came back to defeat Kemerer in the Big Ten championships.

Kem said, "I am not really about proving myself to anyone but myself.  The work in the room, pushing myself to score, it will come out in the match.  I believe in what God gives me and I will just let it happen.  Keep wrestling, keep wrestling, do what I train to do... and I will be fine.  I beat Hall at Carver, he beat me at the Big 10s.  Nationals is what I've been looking to and I'm ready to win."
