MINNESOTA @ PENN STATE

Recommended Posts

I actually was impressed by Lizak.  He clearly isn't physically ready for this level of competition, but he showed some great heart and technique in losing.  Reminds me a little bit of when they threw Mike Thorn out as a true frosh while Mack Reiter was injured

Bad coaching decision putting Conaway down in the 2nd period. Lizak is a fantastic rider. Should have put them neutral and played the takedown game. 

 

 

Fine line there. Conaway could have converted one of those turns and had Lizak on his back. I honestly think the pin was more likely than the TF, so maybe they felt it was worth a shot. Conaway didn't even try to escape, he just kept trying to turn back in.

Schiller does NOT match up well with McIntosh.  McIntosh could get to his ankle at will.  I will not be picking Schiller if they wrestle again.  Schiller better hope he doesn't see McIntosh at NCAA's.

 

This is exactly what their match looked like last year. I think part of the problem is that SChiller has phenomenal hips but isn't much of a scramber.  When MCintosh gets in on those low singles Schiler really struggles to defend

I feel this is an astute thought. I do, however, think Lizak pretty much put himself there both times and thought he some control of it.
