  1. 2010/2011 Big 10 Wrestling Predictions: 197

    Mario Gonzalez: Like Dallago down at 184, Gonzalez is a guy who I've just straight up never heard of.

    Matt Powless: Powless has been here at 197 for Indiana the last couple of years. He's been decent for them and that should probably carry over to this season.

    Luke Lofthouse: Lofthouse stepped in last year and got a lot of run in the middle of the season while regular starter Chad Beatty was forced to sit out with ...

    Moving now to what looks like in my opinion to be the weakest weight in the conference this year.

    Much like I did last year I'm going to stop writing big long things for each person that no one reads and just go with the superlatives and the rankings for the last three weights.


    Most Improved
    AJ Kissel: Kissel redshirted last year after spending most of his sophomore season positioned somewhere around the top ten in rankings. He's a guy who wrestles ...

    Not a problem. Like I always say I enjoy doing these things.


    Here we have a weight that due to one big variable (which I'll get to) became pretty hard to put together.

    Jordan Blanton: I came into last year predicting Blanton to be one of the most improved guys in the country last year. Wrestling as a true freshman he's a guy who showed that he was strong and he was aggressive but wasn't always there in terms of technique. I'd dubbed him Phil ...
  4. 2010/2011 Big 10 Wrestling Predictions: 165

    Conrad Polz: Polz is a guy who in this same thread last year I had tabbed as the guy who was going to be the best freshman at this weight class during the coming season. It didn't quite work out that way for him. He moved around in weight spending time both here at 165 and down at 157. He just struggled, there really isn't another way to say it. He came out this summer though and had a great freestyle run including pulling upsets over Chris Spangler, Derek St. John, ...
  5. 2010/2011 Big 10 Wrestling Predictions: 157 lbs

    Now we come upon what should almost assuredly be the toughest weight in the conference next year.


    Kyle Dooley: I've already noted that this weight is going to be the toughest in the conference and the possibility exists should Illinois decide not to redshirt Jackson Morse and use him here instead that the weight could possibly become even tougher. As it is Dooley is a solid guy here but probably not someone who is going to set the world on fire.
