Thanks Brew.  I enjoyed it. I hope Snyder thrives at heavyweight. Nice to see a guy not sucking down to make a weight.

"He will return for Ohio State's Feb. 5 dual meet at No. 1 Penn State, traveling to compete in a pair of international competitions prior to that."


He'll weigh in and PSU will forfeit rather than expose Johnson to embarrassment.

He is going to go in the B1G with only a couple matches.  I think Ray Brinzer entered with a 0-0 record once.

Should be VERY interesting, especially if Hunter comes back

Nope, Penn State, tournament travel, according to Snyder.  Then B1Gs with likely a 1-0 forfeit.  Should make for an interesting seeding for the tournament committee.

Hope so for selfish reasons (I picked him on my preseason team) and non-selfish (hate to see a kid wash out because of injuries). Hope when he does come back he'll be full strength, or at least able to go out on a high note and AA again.

Snyder won't place, about the dumbest decision that a kid could make.  Waste of a year.
Speaking of sigbets... what about this one?

Someone should sigbet buck on his belief that Riddick will win a national championship....full disclosure Riddick went 0-2 at the southern scuffle.

Thanks for the link. I thought it was a very good interview. Of course it remains to be seen how it will work out. If I'm predicting, I say Snyder will be top 3 in Hwt. I will not say it's a guarantee. It seems like several on here are pretty clear in saying that "there is no way he succeeds". I think it is a mistake to fall on one's sword like that.

I proposed a sigbet a few days ago, and no one has taken me up on it. I will toss it out there again:

Sigbet: If Kyle Snyder wrestles heavyweight at the NCAAs he finishes top 3.

I think top 3 is definitely within his range. I just worry that he'll get hurt against the bigger guys. I guess he's been wrestling Tervel and Coon in practice a lot so he knows what he's doing.

Even if he was guaranteed a national championship this year at 197 it would be pretty stupid to pull down, so I get Snyder's decision. He's already a World Champ, why wreck his weight control to pull down for college? I guess we college fans are just a bit....greedy.

Snyder made an early return to the tOSU line for the Nebraska match on January 17th. He won a 20-9 major decision over Nebraska's Colin Jensen, ranked #17 at the time. He looked big enough to be competitive at Hwt. To me he looked a bit gassed in the 1st period, but then found his pace and rolled to the win.

He might not take a sigbet but I will.

I bet Snyder will not win the HWT title at NCAAs this year. You taking the bet?

Buck was asserting he wouldnt place not that he wouldnt win.

I still say he doesn't place.  I'll be at Nationals so I'll buy everyone a hotdog if I'm wrong ( limited offer:  20)
