    For a drunken poster, you made pretty good picks, LoST. Those are not out of the realm of possibility.
    I'd say the Gophers will contend for the team title, making the Pokes and Hawkeyes nervous in 2009-10.

    When LoSt said ' next year' I assumed he meant 2011 since school has started . Still , 165 is a huge jump for Schlatt and 133 is as deep as last year for Ness and HWT is a bitch . They will place in the top 10 .

    Given that Schlatter just made the world team at 163 pounds, I don't foresee facing bigger opponents being particularly problematic for him.

    Sorry I would assume he was talking about this year. Ness should be in the mix since he beat the 133 champ(Gomez) last year. He is three time All-American that had to jump a weight class to make room for Zach Sanders so he will be alittle more ready for that loaded weight class. Thorn beat the NCAA champ(jaggers) twice last year so I expect him to possibly AA this year at 141.( that would be huge for the gophers) Big Ben might get alittle competition in the gopher room from atticus Disney(RS freshman) at HWT. Geiger hopefully will be have his ducks in a row with the academics and be a force at 197. I think the Gophers are a year away but I wouldn't count them out or ohio state for that matter

    He put on some meat that is for sure. I have to agree. I am really looking forward to seeing what Mr. Olympian Jake Deitchler brings to the gophers at 157 too. Should be great year for a number of Big ten teams

    Just for Ness' sake I hope he wins it all-3 x and no championship sucks -I really hope he can pull it off -I see Dennis and Gomez and Hochstraser as his major opponents providing Escobedo does not move up .PLUS ,Jordan Oliver is going to come out firing on all cylinders as is Graff .
    165 is a guess -it was a deep weight last year and with the returning champion and runner-up and DS into the mix and you have who ever wrestles best that day .

    You have Thorn, Mason, Deitchler, Glasser, Yohn, Geiger and Berhow a bit high but I think they have a shot. For me it really comes down to what kind of personality this team has. Will it have vocal leadership? Will they wrestle hard? Will they stay healthy? Will they continue to improve through out the year? If yes to all then I say yes.
