Thread: #3 Penn State (PSU) vs. #4 Minnesota (MN) Predictions/Discussion/Results

  1. #1

    Default #3 Penn State (PSU) vs. #4 Minnesota (MN) Predictions/Discussion/Results

    i would think there would be more interest in this match at this point. i think this might be a very competitive match with tossups everywhere.

    125 obviously sanders will win and probably get some type of bonus.

    133 long should win but maybe/probably only dec. an improving thorn

    141 wow. thorn and alton should be another alton/ russell, thorn /russell thing
    .
    149 molinaro winning but he really doesn't get bonus pts like he should in matches he should, not that he should destroy z-burg anyway

    157 taylor getting bonuses against the whole gopher student body

    165 yohn vs. fish or kem hmmmm tossup? yohn slightly favored?

    174 ruth is wrestling better and the better wrestler but glasser is not a piece of chopped liver

    184 wright vs. steinhaus if you have wright figured out you're better than i. will wright hit a throw or will steinhaus be on top of a bellied out, head down wright??? tossup?

    197 yohn (if back) maybe bonus pts. no yohn tossup.

    hwt nelson vs wade wade seems to be in a funk despite pulling out a fall despite being hammered against apland. nelson could very well beat wade and i would not be surprised at all. wade also might win. how's that for a predicition. tossup?

    i would be interested in others opinions.

    125--A question whether Pataky goes here. He's won 2 out of 3 between them with Sanders winning the last one at the end. Even if Pataky wrestles he won't be at full strength, so I go with a win either way, with a MD if Morgan wrestles for PSU 0-4 Minn
    133--MD for Long 4-4
    141--A toss-up. I'll pick Thorn due to experience, but for me it's 50/50 4-7 Minn
    149--MD Molinaro 8-7 PSU
    157--TF Taylor 13-7 PSU
    165--Dec Yohn 13-10
    174--MD Ruth 17-13
    184--Another toss-up. I gave the last one to Thorn on experience, so I'll give this one to Wright 20-13 PSU
    197--I'm betting Yohn wrestles, MD 20-17 PSU
    Hwt--It comes down to a very close hwt bout and Wade pulls it out PSU 23-17

    Will post something more substantial here later on.

    First thought though is that this should definitely be a great dual and there will be a WHOLE lot riding on 184 and 285.
