Good for Minnesota, bad for one of my favorite wrestlers, JP O'Conner.

Hmm thus far he has done ok he is 1-1.

Don't know much about the MSU kid he lost to 10-9.

I think overall it makes there line up better but not sure.

As a tourney team it helps them IMO much more then for duals.

I think he has a better chance of making the national finals at 157 as well.

But IMO the top two guys right now at 157 should not be overlooked O'Connor and Fittery.

That will make things interesting at 157.  Personally I am rooting for O'Conner.  Nothing against Schlatter.

Awesome! I was very excited for Dustin at 165 and thought after his WTT performance he got his freshman year spark again. I don't want to get my hopes up again so I will try and refrain from bold predictions but I can't see the Dustin who won the WTT at 163 and was strong enough for top 1 - 2 - 3 at 165 not being able to finish his shots effectively at 157.  Other people have pointed this out but this may make IOWA even more dominant with likely giving IA another national qualifier at 165.

Morningstar was already going to qualify for Nationals.  He does have a much better chance to make the finals now though.

Very big news indeed! Doesn't O'Connor have a win over Dustin?  Anyone looking for a new 165 in Fantasy?

Yeah sorry that's what I meant.  Since they weren't going to qualify at 157 likely anyway this helps Morningstar place higher at NCAA's.

I do believe JPO does have one over DS. Think the cut will hurt him any?
