Thread: Conference & NCAA Awards Predictions

    Yes, as of right now I'm picking Ness to run the table. If he beats Dennis this Sunday I'll obviously feel better about it.

    Just wanted to get away from the Metcalf/Varner stock picks.

    Ryan Lang
    Jordan Burroughs
    JP Oconnor
    Jake Patacsil

    Weather that field with only 1 blemish and I think you earned the Hodge.

    Not to mention the fact that:
    Kurt Kinser
    Bryce Saddoris
    Matt Cathell
    Mitch Mueller
    Adam Hall

    Were all unseeded.

    I don't know if we'll ever see a weight as loaded as that one again.

    I would argue that 165 was quite comparable until Dustin vacated it a few weeks ago...

    Nonetheless, it was a very loaded weight.

    THe best turnaround this year in the Big 12 with the same talent has been Spates. I know a lot of people as they are reading this are saying, but it's all Hensen. Maybe, but Spates is still the head coach so he should get the credit. Even Smith taking OSU from 16th to 3/4 this year so far has been pretty impressive.

    Long has had a breakout year, but I don't know how good he was last year. Fanthorpe banged up, but has not impressed. Mueller claim to fame td on Metcalf but is 20-7 (last yr 24-9). Reader broke thru against M* but has still lost to M* and Howe again. Burke not at last year's level. Ward has breakthrough wins against banged up Keddy & Pucillo, but is 17-6 compared to 24-12 last yr (remember he still has Askren, Big 12's and NCAA's so record will probably even out). Varner is Varner has about the same amount of bonus this year as he did last year. 9 falls 5 major and a tech this year as opposed to 12 falls and 5 majors last year going into Big 12's. Granted he hasn't been upset this year. Zabriske is about the same as last. Hovering around top three all year.

    I guess if some of them outperform at nationals maybe he's up for consideration, but I don't see giving him the award just because he's new.
    I guess it's about expectations. Yes, ISU was predicted to be ranked high with the Sandersons (Cael and Cyler.) Taking over that job under those circumstances is no picnic, and KJ has done very well.
    Yes, OU has improved after years of not improving, but can they go the distance, or will they tank come tourney time? But you are right about Smith. He's also a legitimate contender for COTY honors.
