He wants a tougher room, what room is tougher in the nation when you add the HWC guys to Spencer Lee
With Piccinni, Brock, and Fix... Id say OSU

I'd say that Spencer Lee, Gilman, Clark, McDonough, Dardanes brothers, and Boris Novachkov all around DeSanto's weight would put most rooms to shame.

Let's compare:
Lee - National Champion
Gilman-National Finalist, World Medalist
Clark - National Champion
McDonough - Multiple National Championships
Delgado - National Champion

Fix-nothing at college yet

Yeah, OSU has a big leg up on Iowa

Isn't Delgado gone and McDonough is going to Wisconsin.  Do you know if Giman and Clark are in the room everyday?

So gavin teasdale decommits from iowa and states he is going to be a nittany lion.
Shortly thereafter rby tweets a walking away emoji and starts following Tom brands on Twitter.
It will be interesting how this all shakes out.

He also follows Tom Ryan on twitter and has now for a while.  So I would not put to much stock in that.

Anyone else think Bojo had a TD against Hall?

Are we just going to pretend that Martin didn't lose to Dechow and Zavatsky?

Are you going ignore the fact that Boyd hasn't beating anyone good this year?  According to wrestleStat his best win is against the 20th ranked guy.

Does he show for the dual?

Yeah he was going to fly home from Iran to wrestle in a meaningless dual.

Bo's dealt with the same toe injury for the last few years. The most matches he's wrestled in a season was during his redshirt year. He also has a wife and two children now, so it wouldn't be far-fetched to speculate his best days are behind him. I personally think his best shot at a title was at 174 last year. He's still good enough to place very high on the podium. He can still win it all. I always thought he'd win at least 1 national title and was expecting 2.

174 will be very interesting next month.

He’s battled through a nagging injury through his career, a tumor in his right foot. He’s gone through numerous surgeries and has specially modified wrestling shoes to help him manage the pain.

Bucks didn't wrestle Cornell in a dual but both were at Cliff Keen tourney in Vegas.

Does anyone out side of Okie state think this dual will be close?  Okie State wins 133-141 and maybe one other match.

He's not that good really. 

Really? Name one graduating Senior in High School that was better.

In fact, if he's not that good then the chances are he wont place in the NCAA as a Freshman, wouldnt you agree? 

Why dont you make a prediction of just how far Hall wont make it in the National tournament.

Didn't he also predict Snyder wouldn't place at Hwt. last year?

« on: January 20, 2017, 10:48:59 AM »
am I crazy to think that this is actually a better overall matchup for the Hawkeyes than Oklahoma State was?


125 Iowa
133 Iowa
141 Toss up but I think it goes PSU
149 PSU - Zain has MD him in the past and wouldn't be a major shock if he did it again.
157 PSU
165 PSU
174 Iowa I see this as a toss up but went with Iowa because of home mat advantage
184 PSU
197 PSU
Hwt. PSU - Wouldn't be a major shock if Stoll won.

18-9 PSU

133:  Even though his shoulder isn't 100%, Clark is still stronger than most, including Brock.  The nonsense PD call cost him the match, but regardless of the outcome he was the better wrestler, and I think if the shoulder holds up he is going to finally win in the finals this year.

You could be right about Clark but I think Tomasello is the man at this weight.  He just dominated Richards 12-4 and he has a gas tank to match Clarks.

College / Re: Better career Gilman or Clark?
« on: November 09, 2016, 07:19:18 AM »
Gillman since he will probably win his first title and I don't think Clark will.

College / Re: Want a good laugh?

Tomasello at 133 is going to look like the Blueberry Girl from Willy Wonka when Clark just rolls him around the mat like he's a giant inflatable ball.

Thanks for the laugh but Nate will beat Clark all day ever day

Just saying it honestly would not surprise if Snyder decides to forego finishing out college to focus on freestyle. Not saying he will, just saying it wouldn't surprise me

I talked to him Friday at the Ohio Regional OTC golf outing and he said he will be competing for OSU this year and will wrestle more matches but will still travel over seas to compete as well.

J'Den Cox got pinned in the semis.

Does anyone have the other results?
