Logan Steiber will underachieve
I like this topic. It is good to hear predictions for both surpassing and not meeting expectations.
I pick tOSU. I don't mean to insult or say that they won't be good a couple years from now. I just think the end results for the young guys on this team will not match the expectations or hype for many or all of them. Again, I do expect them to be good soon, just not this year.
I would also say Rasing. He's a returning Big Ten Champ but I am not even sure that he will be IA HWT come season end. I don't know if this qualifies since I am not sure what IA fans expect from Rasing coming into this year so I will look forward to feedback there.
I also think the high expectations/predictions for Jon Morrison's performance are inflated. I think there are gas tank issues there and I see that keeping him from putting together a great NCAA tourny run. Maybe he fixes that this year, but my prediction is that he doesn't since I see him as a 133 who wrestles 125 because of some guy named Oliver at 133.
Morrison never struck me as having gas tank issues and I watch all of OSU's home matches. Parks has one and he also won't shoot. Part of the reason Morrison choked was his staph infection right before B12's
Ed "Baby" Ruth
Nick Amuchastegui is my pick to underachieve. I think he makes the podium, but I don't think that he is in the finals, maybe not even the consi finals. I would second Ed Ruth as well. I think both probably AA but that neither of them will be at the top.
