Thread: Huge weekend for college wrestling!

    Women Huge weekend for college wrestling!

    Many questions will be answered this week in college wrestling. Here are the biggest things I'm looking forward to this week:

    1. Dake vs Caldwell! Two NCAA Champs hopefully meet in the finals of the Southern Scuffle. (hopefully for everyone but Frank the Tank) Both have been battling injuries, but this will be the first time Caldwell wrestles in competition this year. I'd give the edge to Dake, but either guy can win this.

    2. McDonough vs Precin finals of Midlands at 125. Two kids that battle in every match. Biggest test for both so far this season. McD is the reigning NCAA Champ so he is the favorite. I expect this to be a 7-6 match that will be exciting.

    3. Howe vs Burroughs finals at Midlands at 165. Burroughs was out last year and apparently spent the year in the weight room adding what appears to be an extra 100lbs of upperbody muscles. He still has blazing speed and will win this match if he gets the first takedown. Howe is much better on top than Burroughs is on the bottom and will wear Burroughs out if he gets on top of him.

    4. Russell vs Thorn at Scuffle at 141. N#1 vs N#2. Russell is coming off a redshirt season and a big pin over Kennedy. Thorn has been dominating this year. Toss a coin on this one, unless one of those two gets tossed by Alton before the finals, but don't count on it.

    5. Iowa's performance at Midlands....is this really a down year for them? or are they hiding in the bushes? I think we will know after Midlands.

    6. How do teams like Minnesota and Penn State compare to Cornell? Team result at the Scuffle will be an early indication.

    I can't hardly wait for the answers! Gonna be an awesome week!

    Excellent summary, Buck!
    The PSU vs. Minny vs. Cornell question is my favorite. I think that super-talented Cornell gets surprised here by two tough well-coached teams.

    Buck you "forgot" a few...

    133 Scuffle: Andrew Long debut for PSU;

    174 Scuffle: Possible #1 Lewnes vs #2 Henrich final in a loaded weight;

    184 Scuffle: #2 Honeycutt vs #3 Bosak possible final;

    197 Scuffle: #1 Kilgore vs #2 Simaz possible final in a weight even more loaded then 174;

    285 Midlands: Might as well be Philly in March, #1 through #5 @ tourney.

    Also you have some of the top recruits in High School @ tourneys like The Cheesehead & Powerade.
