I'm not posting this as a criticism, but I'm just going to point out that I don't think Gilman has ever lost to Peters, nor have any of the matches been particularly close.

Yeah, I know.  But remember Gilman has also lost to Boyle, who I think is a lesser wrestler than Peters.  I know Gilman has had a great season and even owns a recent win over Garrett, but I just haven't been terribly impressed with him lately.  Conaway had him on the ropes twice, he lost to Boyle, and couldn't find any offense against Waters or Tomasello (not that many can).  I just think he's ripe for upset and I've got a feeling Peters is the man to do it...

I do not like seeing Conaway and Gulibon as round of 12 guys, but realistically those two just love to lose close matches and can not seem to get over the hump. 133 is just stacked with so many talented guys that are just so close in skill. 10 of those 12 guys IMO can win the NCAA title this year. Dardanes is the favorite, but I believe it is anyones come next week. Not trying to be mean, but I really believe Gulibon's problems are mostly mental. I like Brewer to win it.

 

 

Imar will beat Ness or anyone who makes it to the finals. He is the real deal. Only way Ness beats him if he pins him, and Martinez seems to smart for that.

 

Overall I like your picks so far!

After watching the B1G finals match, I completely agree with this statement.  Multiple times during that match, Ness tried to bait Martinez into coming up top for backs and Martinez didn't fall for it and simply controlled the hips for a takedown.  I'm sure having a guy like Perry (who often did the same thing) in the room with him to game plan for Ness is key.

Not making a mistake on one match is not the same thing as never making a mistake. It would be foolish to count out Dylan Ness.

Definitely, we've all seen more than a few guys have a mental lapse or get too aggressive against Ness, only to end up on their backs.  I was just impressed when watching from the stands on Sunday that Martinez stayed with the plan and didn't let Ness bait him into wrestling Ness' match.  It reminded me a bit of how Pendleton used to deal with Askren.  Quick shots, keep your head up and your hips low, don't get into a scramble, secure the lower body and hips and secure the takedown instead of going for the big move or getting greedy for back points.  We'll see if he's able to execute the game plan again and if Ness is able to adjust too.

I have no love for Gilman but i would feel pretty confident betting my house on him beating Peters. No way Gilman leaves St Louis without an AA honor next to his name. With this field, i wouldnt be surprised at all to see Peters go home empty handed...tough weight.
