    A very interesting early season dual will occur on November 20 between Maryland and Cornell.

    Could determine eastern supremacy for this year! Never had a chance to say that about Maryland before!!!!

    Body Bar will be held on November 21.

    Terp,
    The match between Grey and Bell could be real interesting as long as it is the second 1/2 Grey instead of the 1st half . He was cutting a lot last year and , frankly ,I was surprised he was going 33 again .

    That's one of the matches I'm pretty excited to see. Interesting that neither guy beat a seeded wrestler at last year's tourney (at least on the mat -- Bell got an injury default over #8 Joe Baker). And both guys had tough shutout losses at NCAAs -- Ness beat Grey 9-0 and Joe Kennedy teched Bell 16-0 in the fifth place match.

    From all I'm hearing, should be a good one with Grey returning to form.

    Also looking forward to watching Lewnes-Letts at 174. They might see each other again in March. Simaz-Hudson Taylor should be fun to watch and so will 2 guys who could sneak into the AA picture at 165 Kerber-Asper.

    I'm hoping to make it up for the dual and the Body Bar, but I'm not sure how my schedule will be with the new job. Also want to see the NE Duals again and travel for the Natl Duals. I always go to the ACCs and the NCAAs.

    With my daughter going to school in North Carolina I now have more reason to see our dual in Chapel Hill!!

    I think Maryland is great, but they really have their hands full with that talented Cornell team.

    Two very talented teams! Should be a great dual, that's why I want to make it up to Ithaca for it.

    As for the other weights, big things are expected from Kyle Dake, the frosh, at 141. After Nickerson, Grey, Lewnes and Simaz all AAed as freshmen in recent years, some Cornell fans expect Dake to be the next freshman AA. We'll see.

    The 157 pounder, whether it's the favorite, DJ Meagher or senior John Basting, should at least qualify for nationals and maybe win a match.

    Steve Bosak is the third CU wrestler whose ideal weight this year would probably be 174 (along with Lewnes and Kerber). It's hard to know what to expect from him although he did place last year at the Cliff Keen in Vegas at 174.

    149 is the biggest question mark. The hope is that Corey Manson, Brian Alves or whoever wins the spot will qualify for nationals but it won't be that easy. 149 in the EIWA is a weight with decent depth (Kyle Borshoff, Matt Kyler, Cesar Grajales, Kevin LeValley and Bryce Saddoris, if he doesn't go 157).
    If I remember correctly -I put Accordino in my line up against cornell and he stuck Manson . 149 in the EIWA is a really tough weight class and is a tough conference as a whole .I don't believe Manson will make it out of that conference unless he dominates in his other matches .
