Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.
One, two, Evans is coming for you...
I don't hate him either, nor do I hate Varner. I just don't like em. Varner has a history with Iowa and has "earned" the right to be a little cocky about it. The russian flipped the bird in his first match against us. A match in which he did bareley enough to pull out the win. I have respect for Varner as a wrestler, I don't for the russian.

Gorrtfklowf is a talented 197 but typical russian-refuses to train -Lapotsky had 4 + minutes of RT against him -I envision Varner getting a td and then riding him to death until the Russian can't move and then rolling him over .
Dual gets going in about two and a half hours. I will be watching video and posting text results.
Just bumping this up for now almost as a reminder to myself not to forget about it.
Here's how I see it:
125: #5 Andrew Long dec #9 Chris Notte 3-0 ISU
133: #5 Jordan Oliver dec #12 Nick Fanthorpe 3-3
141: #8 Jamal Parks mdec UR Dalton Jensen 7-3 OSU though I could see Parks getting pinned if he spends too much time on the bottom.
149: #10 Mitch Mueller dec. Quentin Fuentes 7-6 OSU
157: #13 Neil Erisman dec UR Andrew Sorenson 10-6 OSU
165: #3 Jon Reader dec Alex Meade 10-9 OSU
174: #13 Duke Burk dec #7 Mike Benefiel 12-10 ISU
184: #13 Clayton Foster dec #8 Jerome Ward 13-12 OSU
197: #1 Jake Varner Fall #7 Alan Gelogaev 17-13 ISU
285: #1 Jared Rosholt dec #4 David Zabriskie 17-16 ISU
From what I have seen of Zabriskie and Rosholt, neither is capable of giving his team bonus points to win a match against even average competition this year. I think it comes down to that weight though and that the winner of that match wins it for their team.
