Thread: Minnesota v. Iowa Predictons/Discussion

  1. #1

    Default Minnesota v. Iowa Predictons/Discussion

    Rough weekend for Iowa this week, they get back at it next Sunday against Minnesota in what is always one of the most watched duals here on this board.

    125: Zach Sanders v. Matt McDonough
    133: Chris Dardanes v. Tony Ramos
    141: Nick Dardanes v. Montell Marion
    149: Dylan Ness v. Michael Kelly
    157: Alec Ortiz v. Nick Moore
    165: Cody Yohn v. Mike Evans
    174: Logan Storley v. Ethen Lofthouse
    184: Kevin Steinhaus v. Vinnie Wagner
    197: Sonny Yohn v. Grant Gambrall
    285: Tony Nelson v. Bobby Telford or Blake Rasing

    Dual sets up in a pretty interesting fashion. In my mind Iowa is favorites from 125-141, and the Gophers are favorites at 184-285.

    Those middle four weights are going to be huge in deciding things, especially in the battle of back ups at 157.

    Will post predictions later this week.

    McD is a shell of his former self at this point. Very concerned about Mcd v Sanders.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Shane--you didn't waste any time.

    Here are my picks:

    125 McD Dec 0-3 Iowa
    133 Dardenes Dec 3-3 (I think one of the Dardeneses pulls an upset, a flip of the coin which; but Chris beat Stieber and Stieber beat Ramos)
    141 Marion Dec 3-6
    149 Ness Dec 6-6
    157 Ortiz Dec 9-6
    165 Evans Dec 9-9
    174 Lofthouse Dec 9-12
    184 Steinhaus Dec 12-12
    197 Yohn Dec 15-12
    Hwt Nelson Dec 18-12 Minnesota

    A lot of the bouts could go either way--a lot more close match-ups than in the PSU-Iowa meet where strength tended not to go up against strength.

    C. Yohn has not been impressive lately and Evans just kept Taylor to a 5 point win. I know you can't compare across wrestlers but Taylor pinned and TF'd Yohn with ease. Lots of close matches. Really the only matchup I wouldn't call a tossup is 184.

    The NCAA selection committee just screwed the Gophers on seeding.

    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.
