Thread: Early Breakdown of 2009-2010 Oklahoma State Cowboys

    Default Early Breakdown of 2009-2010 Oklahoma State Cowboys

    Another team like Minnesota getting a great influx of young guys next year including arguably the best one of any team (given how he wrestled both as a redshirt and then especially this spring) in Jordan Oliver.

    I'll do a detailed breakdown later but anyone else is welcome to step up too.

    125: Chris Notte
    133: Jordan Oliver
    141: Jamal Parks
    149: Albert White
    157: Neil Erisman
    165: Alex Meade
    174: Mike Benefiel
    184: Clayton Foster
    197: Alan Gelogaev
    285: Jared Rosholt

    This lineup, which I've seen for Oklahoma State before, is REALLY dependent on a lot of guys cutting big time weight.

    125 - Notte looked big at 133 and to my knowledge hasn't wrestled 125 at the D1 level

    149 - White wrestled a couple tourneys at 157 last year

    157 - Erisman Wrestled at 171 in high school! THough admittedly I don't think he had weight trouble at 157

    184 - Foster has always been at 197, people say he's small for the weight but every year (including this one) he goes 211 at freestyle events with night before weigh-ins instead of 184.

    197 - Gelogaev is a total unknown outside of the "kills Rosholt in the room" rumors and the fact he has never wretled below 211 so far, has he?

    I'm not saying that this OSU lineup can't happen, but it takes a lot of guys cutting lots of weight - which may hurt them come tourney time.

    OK State always seems to me to be a team where the wrestlers are cutting a ton of weight and not always succefully.
    Dropping a weight class didn't help Brandon Mason last year when he went from an AA at to DNP. A couple years back Dan Friskhorn essentially seemed to defy the coach's orders and refused to wrestle at a lower weight class nad ened up having a good run at the higher class.

    I've never seen notte wrestle anything other than 133. Erisman never had trouble making 157 -Foster and ggsdkhg ??? That is a LOT of weight to cut . IU cuts too much and they suck ./Esco wrestled 135 in high school and I didn't recognize Walpole last me I saw him and I have known him since 7th grade .

    Notte's biggest advantage when it comes to possibly making the cut down to 125 is the fact that he's so short.

    For him its going to kind of be a matter of whether or not he wants to get into the line up since it doesn't look like he'll be beating Oliver.

    He can't make it maybe Smith puts Jon Morrison out in the 25 spot.

    Lots of talent, but limited experience. Aren't the Pokes missing the seasoned, dependable, high-ranking seniors like Minnesota has in Ness and Schlatter?

    They've got the older guys up top with Foster and Rosholt but I would agree with you that they don't have the senior leaders that Minnesota will have next year.

    If it's the same Gelogaev as in this video it's a pretty good bet he'll tear it up.
