    It didn't stress me out too much, I mean like I said they split matches last year.

    Giving Nate Moore the edge over Thorn at 133 was tougher for me personally.

    Moving now to what looks like in my opinion to be the weakest weight in the conference this year.

    Much like I did last year I'm going to stop writing big long things for each person that no one reads and just go with the superlatives and the rankings for the last three weights.

    184

    Most Improved
    AJ Kissel: Kissel redshirted last year after spending most of his sophomore season positioned somewhere around the top ten in rankings. He's a guy who wrestles a kind of boom and bust style. He's got big moves that he's very good at hitting, he's put up 15-20 pins both years that he's wrestled or close to it. His problem was against guys who would wrestle him straight up he could be beaten because those big moves wouldn't work for him. I think as a result of the redshirt last year he'll come in this year as someone who is a little bit more well rounded.

    Best Freshman
    Kevin Steinhaus: Kind of works out almost by default here because if he winds up being the guy in the Gopher line up he's going to be just by my eyeballing one of two freshmen in the line up at this weight class. Had a solid year last year as a redshirt spending some time down at 174 I believe during the early part of the year before making the move up to 184 where he saw some success wrestling unattached, arguably wrestling better at times against common opponents than the Gophers starter at the weight Kaleb Young. Young did out perform him this spring wrestling freestyle but I'm guessing we see the Gophers go with the possibly upside that Steinhaus will bring to the table here.

    Conference Final
    Quentin Wright v. AJ Kissel

    Full
    1. Quentin Wright (Penn State)
    2. AJ Kissel (Purdue)
    3. Travis Rutt (Wisconsin)
    4. Grant Gambrall (Iowa)
    5. Peter Capone (Ohio State)
    6. Kevin Steinhaus (Minnesota)
    7. Hunter Collins (Michigan)
    8. Eric Cameron (Indiana)
    9. Ian Hinton (Michigan State)
    10. Tony Dallago (Illinois)
    11. Aaron Jones (Northwestern)

    NCAA Qualifiers: Wright, Kissel, Rutt, Gambrall

    Edit: I will say that Northwestern could add a very, very interesting variable to this weight class should they decide not to redshirt Lee Munster. Given his success wrestling some of these same guys at FILA Junior competitions this year and getting him in with Herbert every day he could conceivably pull off a major run as a true freshman, because like I said this weight class isn't exactly loaded.

    J,
    I read each and every word of your oracular powers !!That being said I really think this is ERIC CAMERON'S year to shine !!! If he can stall for 2 periods and then escape and dance for 3 minutes he can win the big 10.

    I appreciate it sir, and to be honest in looking at the last two weights I'll probably extend out my thoughts on some of the guys there.

    My issue with this last weight though was it seemed like for half the guys I'd be writing "I don't really know anything about this guy" or looking to find a somewhat indirect way of saying "I know this guy, and he isn't good."

    J,
    IU's website has Trevor Perry at 174-he is out of time unless he received a med hard ship-197 Fagiano/Powless was NEVER supposed to happen until Ricky Alcala signed on board (somehow),Cameron is a 2x NCAA qualifier,Powless a 1x , and Fagiano a 2 x coming off a RS where he has been bulking to hwt . Now Shrek shows up and who's on first ?
    LeBlanc split with Cubberly and Sheptock and was 20-2 last year .
    IMO, the line up should be
    Kinser-157
    Young -165
    174 -LeBlanc
    184-Powless
    197 Fagiano
    Hwt-Shrek

    As I have mentioned -once Young and Kinser are gone so is IU as far as I'm concerned .

    Can Powless make 184?

    That seems to be the ideal line up if they're able to pull that off.

    Powless at 220 would have less of chance of making 184 than Kriss would at 210

    HEY KRISS -The last time we talked you said Tanner was 6'3'' 215 but I digress . Really good to hear from you-please post what you think the IU line up will be or at least PM JensenS and let him know .
    I think I was right in the first plan-
    184 -Kriss
    197-Powless
    HWT-Fagiano
    Drop me a line and let me know how you are doing !!! Russ
