Thread: ISU vs Mizzou

    Default ISU vs Mizzou

    NICE! Waters was down 4-2 to a top 10 kid, but kept his composure, and dominated the last 2 periods to get the major 13-4. Overcoming a bad start, a necessary skill to posess. McCormick handled the back-up, didn't look very sharp, though. Wiest wrestled hard and was another 15 seconds from coming back on Goettl. I'm really liking Mizzou's wind this year. Bradley dismantled Cozart and broke him at the end, as I thought he would. Houdashelt destroyed Moreno, who was healthy according to his dad prior to the match. Houdashelt is the real deal. Sorenson dominated Toal, getting to his ankle at least 4 times. Sorenson is TOUGH. Henderson was tied 4-4 after 2, but made one mistake, and lost. He never really got into his offense, credit Spangler for a great match. Larson looking good, threw England to his back and stuck him. Haynes made good things happen by going to his leg attacks early. Good win for a slumping Haynes. Maybe he's back on track. Mellon continues to knock off more highly regarded heavies. He's quick, and has a great shot when he uses it. Overall, pretty sure that's the worst beat-down ISU has ever suffered to the Tigers. Kevin Jackson continues his quest for mediocrity. Sad really.

    Mikey England is the son of a friend yet KJ just KEEPS throwing him under the bus . Today he wrestled 184 ( he is a 174 lber) and got crushed
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I'm sure if asked Mike England would rather be out there wrestling than sitting on the bench. Even if it is up a weight. He's not the kind of kid that's going to get down on himself because he lost a match while wrestling up a weight. I'm sure he's pissed about it but he will learn from it and forget about the match.

    I agree. If Boaz can't wrestle, you put your 2nd best option out there and that is Mikey England. Mikey hopefully finds a spot in the lineup next year, whether its a cut to 165 or a build to 184, I don't know.

    i also assume Mikey will wrestle 174 at Midlands as a point scorer.

    The real problem is that Iowa State's second best 184 pounder is Shafer, but with both Ward and Gadsen out he is the best option left at 197, so ISU ends up with two guys wrestling up a weight when Beard is out.

    I agree that may be the case. I've thought that maybe Cole should be wrestling 184 and Tyler Christenson should be wrestling 197 when Boaz is hurt. I don't know what Cole's weight is now, if he being bulked up as a future 197 pounder or what.
