    Z takes shots? I guess I didn't see that against Lofthouse.

    I see Varner getting a Major or a fall here. If he spends enough time on top, he has too much power and I think that by the third Z will be too tired to fight off his back.

    LOL, true Wiltz, but Z went 7 or 8 straight before that with either falls while up big or double digits, including against some decent competition (Kennedy, Orozco, Drury)...

    I think of Z as more of counter wrestler. I didn't see the Kennedy or Orozco matches but, Drury got countered several times of off some sloppy shots. Varner isn't going to take any sloppy shots. IMO


    Z has some big moves and he gives up that leg hoping to toss someone. I don't see Varner not finishing once he gets in there.

    Meade vs. Reader is key. Both are tough. I'd give the nod to Reader.
    Parks can't be trusted to beat an unranked Jensen IMO. Erisman is good, but a major decision over Sorenson? I dunno. But Burk will have his hands full with Benefiel.

    OSU wins 133, 157, and 174. I'd pick Fanthorpe if it was at ISU. Varner with a major.

    ISU 19-9
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    Varner DQ Gelogaev...LOL. I can't believe we found a guy that we want to see lose more than Varner!
