It will be interesting at 125--it could be the first time that Sanders goes into the match ranked ahead of McD!

Don't know for sure but Sanders was probably ranked ahead of McD the first time the wrestled.

Nope. He was ranked ahead in their first ever match, as I recall.

So even with Marion the odds of Iowa winning the first three bouts is much less than 50%.
There are usually at least 10 horses competing in one event. These are one on one contests. McD and Marion are both heavy favorites. Ramos is a srong favorite, too, but those two have had close matches in the past, so I'd say that's a closer proposition.

Not to get all pointy-headed, but in order to find the probability of all three wrestlers winning you would multiply each invidividual probability of winning. If each of the Iowa wrestlers had a 90% chance of winning then the probability of all three winning would be .9 x .9 x .9, or .73.

You should post those predictions on TWT just to test the waters on neutral ground.

Jammen:
Neutral ground?! TWT has several flaming Squawkahlolics even the HawkeyeReport doesn't want.

Ronsnap:
Who are those?

Jammen:
There's a HerkeyJerky character, Chopsuey, Vasolineforlovers, Zapp somebody. You'd know better than I.

Who is this Ronsnap guy anyway?

Im kind of Insulted that I wasnt involved in his post, but it is pretty obvious and apparent that I am in fact a State Penn fan.

I used McD (75%), Ramos (75%), and Marion (90%) = 50% solely as an example of how difficult it is to parlay matches. The McD and Ramos matches are actually closer to tossups.

I'm not sure how you can have both McD-Sanders and Ramos-Thorn as toss ups. Sanders has never beaten McD, never even come particularly close outside of there first match McD's RS frosh year. Just a terrible match up for Sanders. However, if you want to argue that Sanders is wrestling better than McD this year, I can listen to that argument, but then Ramos has been wrestling much better than Thorn this year and has also never lost to him, so...is it prior history or current wrestling? You seem to be using both lines of logic as they suit you.

9. ## Re: The second time Jammen ever made me laugh

I don't have a stake in this, but I can't see either McD vs Sanders or Thorn vs Ramos as toss-ups. I would agree that both Sanders and Thorn have a shot at an upset. But just that--an upset. I see both McD and Ramos as each having better than 75% odds of winning.
