  1. 2010/2011 Big 10 Wrestling Predictions: 285

    285

    Illinois
    Pat Walker: Walker was in the line up for Illinois last year. He wrestled alright but didn't really make a huge impact in the conference or nationally.

    Indiana
    Ricky Alcala: It seems like a really random place for Alcala to choose to transfer coming from California now to Indiana but when I sat back and thought about it much like how Maryland does crab cakes and football, Indiana does 125 pounders and heavyweights. Coming off a year where they had ...
  2. 2010/2011 Big 10 Wrestling Predictions: 197

    197

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

    Indiana
    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.

    Iowa
    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 ...
  3. 2010/2011 Big 10 Wrestling Predictions: 184

    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 ...
  5. 2010/2011 Big 10 Wrestling Predictions: 165

    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, ...
