  1. 2010/2011 Big 10 Wrestling Predictions: 184

    by , 08-30-2010 at 12:16 PM
    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.

    184

    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.

    174

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

    Illinois
    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 ...

    165

    Illinois
    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, ...
  4. 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.

    157

    Illinois
    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.

    149

    Illinois
    Eric Terrazas: Terrazas had an interesting year last year in terms of his wins and losses starting off his season with an 11-0 record. The issue that once he made his way into the Big 10 season he went 1-8 over his last nine matches with his only win coming in overtime over Matt Coughlin who isn't in the weight class anymore.

    Indiana
    Alex Warren: I know Russ and others have been making noises that this is going to be Kurt Kinser here but the sheer ...
