Can we see Austin desanto be in the running for a ncaa tittle this year? Can he overcome RBY? Can we see the old desanto again?!

Why, did he lose to RBY at NCAA?

No, but the returning champ is the man to beat.  If Fix, RBY, and Desanto are all at 133, Desanto takes 3rd at best.

Tenacity is great but to navigate what that bracket could end up being, he’s going to have to have the technique…and tactics….to get through a number of individuals competing on a world class level, and the defending champ, who has his number. Going to take more than being tenacious.

He took third last year, dominantly.  He's an underdog to win the title, but he definitely could.  Given the constitution of the weight, it's going to be tough, of course, and he would probably be the 4th betting favorite

He's really good at a lot of things, but also has some definite limitations. Given the amount of time he's spent wrestling in the limelight those limitations are very well known and the top guys use them to totally take away his offense in big matches.

This rings true, though I would remind everyone how much better his mat wrestling got at Iowa, so an optimist would hope he retained the ability to improve and has become a more dynamic wrestler on his feet. He has been shut down by the top guys, but he wouldn't need much more diversity of offense to be a hand full for anybody.

Byrd and Myers wrestled DeSanto tough in the Big Tens and NCAA respectively.  133 is my favorite/most anticipated weight class for this year.  

Byrd at big tens yes, but he dominated Myers at NCAAs

Isn't Seabass dropping back down to 133?  If so, he is another guy I take over DeSanto.

If Spencer had both acl replaced he'll have to go up to 133, correct?  ;-)

Yea completely forgot about that, he’s dropping to 133 and Alvarez is moving up 

 

Rby, Fix, Micic, Seabass, Desanto, Vito then guys like Myers, Bird, Cannon, Paetzall, McGee might be the deepest weight this year

If anyone doesn't believe Desanto can win it, they don't watch wrestling.

A fan or not, there isn't as tenacious a 133lber out there.

Lol Just decided to venture back over to the college boards and glad to see you appreciating somebody's tenacity. 
Also no, he can not win the NCAA's

You left?

Is it weird that somehow my soul suddenly feels a little less full?

Frank seems to be off living his best life. I'm just glad he was around to get that Dake win under his belt. 


@nhs67 I, snobbishly, claim the college boards are ridiculous.
But it's 100% a reflection of it being the offseason. 
I'm so sad it's now the international off-season.
Double OF has me grasping at straws.
#Cheers. I'm going to crush College Sig Bets (It's my goal for the 21/22 season)
