Thread: Big 10 Wrestling Pre-Season Predictions ( Rankings )

    Default Big 10 Wrestling Pre-Season Predictions ( Rankings )

    but I am anyway. Graduation has left me a little puzzled at 141. 165 seems a little dense as well and 174 seems about empty after the top 4. The move up of Davis and Bergman leaves me at wanderment for 197. Hwt, will be fun to see a battle for the title.

    197
    1. Mike Tamillow Senior Northwestern
    2. Dallas Herbst Junior Wisconsin
    3. Pat Bond Sophomore Illinois
    4-7 (amazing how I garner 197 as one of the toughest weights Nationally, but yet it's one of the weakest, from what I can gather in the Big 10. Just goes to show you that wrestling is expanding beyond the Big 10/Big 12).

    Yeah, I had a feeling some things would turn around and be different. Can you believe I forgot Eric Tannenbaum? Jimminy Crickit, Jumping Joesphat Batman!

    Do you think Glasser is really that good? I find it hard seeing him Medal at the Big 10's.

    Yes I think Glasser is very good. He had a great pedigree coming out of high school, and lost very few matches last year as a redshirt. Maybe Coughlin beats him out for 3rd, but I don't see him any lower than 4th.

    He's from Trusty's neck of the woods, I'm sure he can tell you more about him if I don't convince you.

    And even if it winds up being Saf at 65 for the Gophers, I can't figure why you put him behind Dean, and Bergsrud when he whupped both of them over the same weekend last year in his first two matches at 165.

    When do Gopher fans start whining about their hole at 197?
    Fisrt eigt weight classes Jensen has MN wrestlers placing 1,1,2,1,1,3,2,1.
    Think they are going to win the Big Ten?

    I guess I did go a little Gopher heavy, but I've never pretended not to be first and primarily a fan.

    They do bring everyone back from last year's National Champions save for Konrad, so I THINK they're going to be half decent again.

    Minnesota will dominate the Big 10's this year and God forbid any underwrestling, will also walk home with the NCAA championship.
