Thread: 2009-2010 Gopher line up

    jensens, your most likely right if he wrestles this year. My original post was a hypothetical and what I felt would be our best lineup next year. However It wouldn't suprise me to see Dustin at 157 this year. Where Saf. goes then I don't know, maybe 149. After all that I believe Dustin can't wait to step on the mat with that guy from Iowa, whats his name again nobody ever mentions him ( Met..something)

    I cant imagine schlatter not being at 149... He just doesnt seem that big. Someone said hes like 170 right now but thats not overly big for a 149 pounder, he's not going to be cutting 20 pounds of water weight he'll probably lose about 10 pounds as we get into the season and whats left will be the cut.

    This is going to be a growing year for the gophs I hope for big things from sanders thorn and berhow

    If Schlatter does go up to 157 I do like the Gophers looking like this for 2008-2009:

    125 Sanders
    133 Ness
    141 Thorn
    149 Mason/Mincey
    157 Dustin Schlatter
    165 Safratowich/Glasser
    174 Yohn/Sitch/Young
    184 McPhail/Yohn/Geiger
    197 Eidensheink/Malamura/Geiger
    Hwt Berhow/Nord

    Not sure where Geiger would land but would assume that both Geiger and younger Yohn will redshirt for sure next year unless there is an injury. The more I look at this line-up, the more I like it. If Glasser could go up to 174, that would solidify the line-up and make it a much tougher dual team.

    2009-2010 would look like this then I would guess.

    125 Sanders
    133 Ness
    141 Thorn
    149 Mincey
    157 Mason
    165 Glasser
    174 Yohn
    184 Yohn
    197 Geiger
    Hwt Berhow/Disney/Nord

    That's a pretty tough line-up right there. Some people might think that Thorn and Mincey look like weaknesses in that line-up but I would disagree. By then Thorn will have filled out nicely at 141 and Mincey is going to surprise some people. I think the Yohn's and Geiger will be young but they certainly have the pedigree to compete against the Top 10 at there weights with redshirt years.

    Berhow will have added another 20 lbs by then and should be in there around 260-275 by then. I REALLY hope Marty Morgan comes back after one year and works with these guys.

    Yohn is a BIG dude. He'd have to start removing limbs if you want him to make 74.

    Sitch is gone............injured and career over unhappily

    GOD, I keep forgetting about Sitch. Not sure why I keep doing that. And if Yohn wants to make my team, I think some sacrifices are in order. Whats a limb or two in the big scheme of things?

    I guess I thought the plan was always a Yohn at 174, a Yohn at 184 and Geiger at 197. I thought the older Yohn was a little bit smaller than the younger Yohn. If you say he can't make 174, I believe you though. I smell a pinch in the line-up though if two Yohn's and Geiger have to battle for two spots the next four years. Someone isn't going to be happy.

    Actually, younger Yohn could make 165 with a little effort, so 174 won't be a big deal. In 2 years, older Yohn might be big enough for 197 tho.

    yoda has it right.

    Sonny is the older one and also the bigger one. He had an identical record to Sanders (23-1) last year wrestling at 184.

    So you are saying:

    125 Sanders
    133 Ness
    141 Thorn
    149 Mason/Mincey
    157 Schlatter
    165 Safratowich
    174 Glasser
    184 Yohn (Sonny)
    197 Eidensheink
    Hwt Berhow

    Could happen this year? I REALLY like that line-up if that could happen. Say what you want about DS being cut at 149 but he has not been the same wrestler with the tank that he had in 2006. The knee is one thing but the cutting is another. Give me this line-up next year any day (possibly switch Glasser and Saf if need be) and I will get you a Top 10 finish at NCAA's.

    I actually think there is a reasonable chance of qualifying 8 of 10 with that line-up and a really outside shot of 9 or 10 if the stars align themselves.

    The following year then Sanders stays at 125, Ness stays at 133, Thorn stays at 141, Mincey holds 149, Mason goes 157, Glasser comes back to 165, young Yohn goes 174, older Yohn goes 184, Geiger goes 197 and Berhow/Disney goes Hwt. Thats a pretty solid line-up.
