Fletcher

June 28 streaming freestyle matches

Recommended Posts

Are these all FS matches with the typical UWW rules (also, isn’t Rau a Greco guy?)? I thought I remembered hearing something about FS, single 10 min round, no push outs? The no push modification would probably play into JO’s favor.

Picks (assuming standard FS):

JO over Nolf

Pletcher over Lugo

Ness over Palacio

Zane over Zach

Pfarr over ZBrau

Nazar over DBrau

Dardanes over McKee

Rau and Downey were signing "Crimson & Clover" to one another DURING their third-place match at the Challenge Tournament a few years ago in Rochester. One of the stranger things I'd seen/heard, but knowing both of those guys, not really THAT surprising. 

Maybe they'll run it back.

If these are actually competitive matches it might be the best wrestling event in a while and for awhile. Looking forward to it. 

I'd pick:
JO over Nolf
Pletcher over Lugo
Ness over Palacio
Rau over Downey
Zane over Sanders
ND over Mckee
and 
Pharr 
Kulchytskyy
 

BTS Chicago has been putting on a ton of great events.

If the matches are good, they might be good?  How insightful....

Rau is a Greco guy but has competed in freestyle as well. 

Rau is definitely a Greco guy, but he's also a dedicated Chicagoan (including a tatoo that's a variation of the city's flag on one of his shoulders).

I have the exact same picks as you.  I don't see most of these matches as being close, with the exception of JO-Nolf and Pletcher-Lugo.

I’m going  Nolf over JO. Nolf is bigger and his pace will wear JO out. 
  
Really excited for that one. Great matchup that I haven’t really considered

I wonder if JO's improved cardio over thas past 18 months combined with no weight cut may open some eyes

I really like Pletcher............ but I see Lugo coming out on top in this one. I met Pletcher's grand parents ( really good people) on the Alaska ferry going into his freshman year at Ohio St............... followed him closely after that

To be fair Pletcher could blow Lugo out of the water and still only win 2-0

Right because your comment was so much more helpful wasn't it?

Just not sure everyone will be wrestling to win as opposed to trying to make it entertaining for fans with some added theatrics.

lol......I think that could be true.

I also think the same could be said for Lugo with a win.

Oh, absolutely! Hahahaha

I guess a better way to say it is one of them could completely dominate the match in every aspect and still only win 2-0, meaning a takedown at the end would win it for either.
