Thread: Oregon State Vs. Boise State Predictions and Discussion

  1. #1

    Default Oregon State Vs. Boise State Predictions and Discussion

    Oregon State's Projected Lineup from their website (link):

    125 - Jason Lara
    133 - Kelly Kubec
    141 - Mike Mangrum or Garrett Drucker
    149 - Scott Sakaguchi
    157 - Alex Elder or John Tuck or RJ Pena--I see Elder taking a RS this year so I can't imagine they would use him here.
    165 - Jon Brascetta
    174 - Colby Covington
    184 - Brice Arand--It'll be interesting to see who BSU puts here since Smith will not be wrestling.
    197 - Chad Hanke
    HWT - Clayton Jack

    TOM's projected lineup and breakdown (link)
    #14 Oregon State vs. #4 Boise State
    (Line ups are based on projected line-ups submitted to TOM for the conference preview, line ups may change)

    Projected Line-up

    125: #12 Jason Lara vs. Alan Bartelli
    133: #13 Kelly Kubec vs. #2 Andrew Hochstrasser
    141: #10 Michael Mangrum vs. #13 Levi Jones
    149: Scott Sakaguch vs. #6 Jason Chamberlain
    157: RJ Pena vs. #1 Adam Hall
    165: Jon Brascetta vs. Kurt Swartz
    174: #9 Colby Covington vs. Brock Gutches
    184: Ty Vinson vs. #1 Kirk Smith
    197: Chad Hanke vs. Matt Casperson
    Hwt: #12 Clayton Jack vs. Toby Erickson
    Well in a very early battle between the two teams expected to contend for the PAC 10 Title this year we are in for a good night as fans.

    On paper we see it as a tight one with Oregon State being favored at 125, 141, 174, Hwt and Boise State Favored at 133, 149, 157,184 with 165 and 197 listed as toss ups. So, on the surface this has the makings of a nail biter.

    The Match-up
    Bonus points will play a huge factor in this one.

    125: We see a close decision in favor of Lara. Lara will be looking to put up some big points in a match where they are the favorite.
    133: We may get to see the return of Hochstrasser in an early season test against Kubec, who is also nationally ranked. Kubec needs to avoid a major or look for an upset.
    141: This should be a close one against two guys who are pretty close in the rankings. Oregon State needs to win this one and this match should be considered a ?key? for them to win this dual.
    149: We are projecting Sakaguch here, but you could easily see someone else. Whoever gets the nod will be looking to knock off Chamberlain or at least keep this one close.
    157: Be it Pena or someone else, Oregon State needs to keep this one to a Major or better against #1 Hall.
    165: This is a swing match in our opinion. Neither team has a clear favorite and will be fighting hard to grab these points.
    174: Oregon State sends out top 10 wrestler Covington to look for bonus points of his own. We will know more about where Gutches is at after this one.
    184: Another weight where the Beavers have to try and limit the damage against #1 Smith.
    197: Swing match number two here. We would give Hanke the nod as a slight Favorite. We do believe that for Oregon State to win this one, they will have to win here and at 165.
    Hwt: This should be a win for the Beavers with #12 Jack, we expect Jack to try and add bonus points in this one.

    My thoughts: With word that Smith is not wrestling in this dual that gives Oregon state a chance. I don't see Elder at 57 (not that it would matter much against Hall). I hate to say it but even with Smith out I don't know that Oregon state can pull this out.
    125--Lara with a major 4-0 OSU
    133--Hocc with a DEC 4-3 OSU
    141--Going with Mikey here in a great but close match 7-3 OSU
    149--Chamberlain with a fall 7-9 BSU
    157--Hall with a Major 7-13 BSU
    165--Brascetta by Dec 10-13 BSU
    171--Covington by fall 16-13 OSU
    184--Arand with a decision if Smith does not wrestle. 19-13 OSU w/o Smith
    If Smith is here then I say Smith with a fall 16-19 BSU w/Smith
    197--Hanke by a decison 22-13 OSU
    285--Jack by dec 25-13 OSU

    Yes I'm an Oregon State homer and I have given all of the swing matches to the beavers.

    I see !33 as being tight -Hoch won 3-0 last year -Chamberlain WBD-165 -Swartz wrestled 174 against NIC-Boise fft'd to NIC at 84 -I think Jack pins Ericson-Osu wins at least 6 matches -7 if Smith no shows .Boise's 285 lost 7-1 to Marcel Dubose from NIC.

    Good to see Dubose back wrestling again, I assume that's the same kid who left CMU?

    Word is that Smith won't be wrestling but instead they'll FF the weight.
