    Default Metcalf vs Barnes

    Anybody know how Heinrich Barnes did against Metcalf- or other "top 3" opponents- while wrestling in college?

    I like to think Barnes would have a good shot at winning the US Nationals in freestyle, if he had the citizenship to do so (he's South African.)

    I had Heinrich on my team a few years ago-placed 8th but did AA-his conditioning did him in -he could not ''hang'' with Palmer,Metcalf.he lost to Ruschell-he might have placed higher than 8th had he not gassed and lost to Chamberlain -he had beaten Chamberlain twice and they went into OT 3rd time and he lost .Cost him a seed in NCAA tournament .
    NO way he could beat Palmer or Metcalf.

    Pretty sure Metcalf beat him (badly) at NCAA's the year that Barnes AA'd.

    Just looked it up, Metcalf pinned him in 3:47 in the second round in 09.
