Tsirtsis vs Sueflohn

Recommended Posts

Nebraska won with 2 back ups in the line up at 184 and HWT. Seems this dual came down to OT matches and pins.

FFT at 174 helped. I don't see Munster beating Kokesh but a decision there for Munster would have tied it up.

my understanding is sueflohn just learned he was not going to redshirt a wk or so ago.... so not in shape.... maybe sucking down a bit...

but still...he didn't wrestle as well as perhaps he should have... jammens assessment is fairly accurate

NW forfeited 174 after introducing Dylan Marriott. This is a disturbing trend in college wrestling that cheats the fans. How may forfeits are we going to have this year before rule changes are made.

 

Interesting they introduced Dylan Marriott at 174. Marriott is on the NW roster as a 149. Against Air Force, they sent out David Helmer at 174 who is also on the NW roster as a 149 (he got pinned by Connor Witt from AF). No other guys in the room close to 174 they aren't redshirting?

I don't think seed protection is happening here for a few reasons. First, it's early in the season, so there's plenty of time to bounce back from potential losses. Also, seed protection only really works late in the season because in order to protect a seed you need to be solidly in that seed and there can't be major flux around you, none of which is true when we have over 3 months of wrestling to go. Second, the depth of 174 this year makes seed protection relatively ineffective. Last year, the big seed protection move was Dom Bradley sitting vs. Okie State. But, that happened at the end of the season when there was little chance of great movement in the rankings, and it also happened in a weight where there were three heavy favorites. So for Bradley, protecting the 1 seed meant no Z or Nelson in the semis. This year, 125 shakes out similarly, and you can watch to see if Delgado gets benched late in the year so he doesn't have to see Megaludis/Garrett in the semis. 174 goes 8-9 deep in God knows what order so seed protection doesn't really work. Odds on he sprained his ankle in practice or something like that and Pariano is holding him out as a precaution.

I don't think Jammen was talking about seed protection regarding this. I think he was referencing the fact that NW weighed in a 174lb wrestler and had him come out for introductions and then chose not to wrestle him. This robs the fans of a match that they paid to see.
