    The youngen has much more talent than the old guy.

    keep in mind that Dretsch was NOT heavily recruited...didn't have a whole lot other than the fact that he came from frazee like Nagel did I think and probably got a good word from Nagel's that Dretsch might be able to help Minnesota at 174...in fact that is probably the reason he got the look in the first place...i know Trusty can empathize with this as his father was a tremendous evaluator of talent...i think Dretsch has come a long way on the big scene, maybe just topped out his talent finally...

    btw, don't count out Kuhlman making some noise at 174 possibly...he was no slouch and now that he isn't injured might be a little pissed about how much mat time he has missed after taking one for the team two years ago and wrestling 197 the second half of the year...

    I agree with ya gofer, from a 1x state champ walk on, Dretsch has improved big time. But theres a lot of "want" in that room, and I think the young talent from the NW will be the guy.

    btw, I don't think kuhlmans in any of the picture.

    i guess if a guy like kuhlman can't crack the line-up that speaks volumes for the program. Kuhlman could have wrestled anywhere from 165 to 184 legitimately had he known with a year's notice where he was going to go. To know now that he can't break into the line-up at least gives you an indication that the wrestling room is stocked and competitive.

    i don't see very many hawkeye fans making an argument for a dual victory this year...there were many who stated that when V-Tech was basically dismantled and brought to Iowa that they would be immediate contenders for the title...i think they were premature by one year.

    i think in 2009 and 2010 they have the makings of a very solid line-up though i wonder how they will compete at 197 and heavy...those look like some pretty big holes right now after this year

    I would if Erekson is still in the line-up at 197 and healthy. Too many ?'s about that weight. Iowa will be improved I think the dual is going to be a good one.

    I really dont see how you can consider falck vs ness a toss up?? They wrestled 3 times last year and ness outscored him 22-1, if anything I think ness steps it up another notch and gets the fall.

    Now I'm not saying falck could never beat ness, but if he did I'd considerit an upset

    i think each one of the matches was getting closer and closer...i don't recall calling it a toss-up but i do know falck and ness and that match-up will continue to be no better than a decision for minnesota and if you assume more than that on paper than you are making a mistake as a coach...remember I am pro gophers dude.

    I'll agree that a DEC is what MN will usually get from here on out, but I also think MN is going to be winning this weight 90-99% of the time- some of which will be larger margins of victory maybe even a fall in there. Ness caught Falck in muscle maturity (since HS) and has a lot of length for a 125..
