Team title next year may hinge on these five wrestlers

Recommended Posts

I think most people know how the stiebers will perform, plus Snyder and Jordan both look like great shots for high AA. But in order to beat Minnesota if Cael put Mega and Retherford on redshirt, you will need Courts, Demas, Dijulius, Tavanello, and Tomasello to perform. I think three of these guys have to AA and they can win the title. 100-110 pts could be enough next year, going to be one of the more exciting season.

minnesota:

125 brancale/thorn: ncaa qualifiers at worst 1-2, at best 7/8

133: dardanes: the weight cut may be a huge issue, but i have faith in him being an AA for a third time

141: dardanes: no higher than 4

149:

157: Ness.. his year too shine, hell take his bumps mid season as he normally but hell come thru when it matters

165:

174:storely is the preseason number 1

184 pfarr mid AA

197: schiller top 4

heavey: always seem to do well low AA

Ohio State beats that line up, imo of course.

 

125 Thomasello beats Thorn or Brancale

133 Minny

141 Steiber, and he gets a lot of bonus

149 Steiber

157 Ness, and he gets a lot of bonus

165 Bo Jo will score a lot more than Minny wrestler

174 Storley

184 Toss up between Courts and Pfarr

197 Snyder will outpoint Schiller

Hwt Tavanello will outpoint Minny Hwt.

For Minnesota I think they need 7 AA's to win it all. I gave each wrestler a rating on scale 1-5. 5 being most likely to AA, 1 being least.

 

125-Brancale-1 -showed flashes, but lacked consistancy

133-Dardanes-4.5 -can he hold the weight, if so lookout

141-Dardanes-4 -can compete with anyone at the weight, will he have the consitancy needed to perform at nationals?

149-Short-2 -just won two pan am golds, the Dardanes moved down to make room for him in the lineup. Lost a close one to both Dardanes and Tshirts(who didn't) last season.

157-Ness-5 -If he can make the finals through the road he had last season (avenging 3 losses), I have no doubt he will do it again.

165-Kingsley-2 -still a question of who will hold the weight. Kingsley has shown flashes but may be too small for the weight.

174-Storley-5 -Pre-Season number 1. Can beat anybody at the weight.

184-Pfarr- 3 -stepped in nicely for Steiny last season and was a bonus point freak. Beat Dean in freestyle this summer. I expect him on the podium.

197-Schiller-5 -Top 3 for sure IMO.

285-Kroells-3 -Similar to Pfarr in that he looked good in limited varsity action. Had a major over R12 Tavenello at National Duals. Glad to hear he is in the 250's for weight now. He is an exciting heavyweight that never stops attacking.

 

5-Finalist potential, Almost "guaranteed" top 4

4-Mid to high AA

3-AA potential, decent resume to support

2-AA potential, small sample size to support

1-Unlikely to AA

 

I will compare tOSU and MN, the first is who I give the edge to in a dual, the second in a tournament.

125-tOSU,tOSU

133-MN, MN

141-tOSU,tOSU

149-tOSU,tOSU

157-MN, MN

165-tOSU,tOSU

174-MN,MN

184-tOSU, MN-wanna call this a tossup.

197-MN,MN- Snyder will be great, I just know what Schiller has proven. I can't pick someone who has yet to step on a college mat over the 3rd place finisher last season.

285-MN,tossup - in a tournament I am not sure who would go deeper.

 

I think tOSU wins in a close dual with the MN lineup I posted. In a tournament it is really close as well with a razor thin edge to tOSU due to Steiber's almost lock of championship. These two teams are very close in talent level.

141 can cisneros make the weight? does dake/realbuto/koll get the spot

157 realbuto... hope he can come back from his knee injury and be full stength if so AA

165 Palacio... low AA, can surprise people and win it all

174 pickett, but i wouldnt mind seeing owen scott here

184 dean, finished 3rd this past season i think he is a preseason number 1
