Thread: Penn State vs Ohio St Predictions

  1. #1

    Default Penn State vs Ohio St Predictions

    Like the Minn-Iowa dual, the PSU-tOSU dual has more interesting match-ups than the PSU-Iowa dual where most weights had a clear favorite at the start. Both teams had close to the same result against Iowa (22-12 and 21-9) each winning 7 bouts. Should be very interesting. Here are matches (Rankings are Intermat, and will change with this weekend's results):

    125: #8 Megaludis vs #15 DiJulius PSU Dec 3-0
    133: UR Martelloti vs #4 L Stieber OSU Fall 3-6
    141: UR Pearsall vs #7 H Stieber OSU MD 3-10
    149: #1 Molinaro vs #16 Cessari PSU Dec 6-10
    157: #8 Alton vs UR Demas PSU Dec 9-10
    165: #1 Taylor vs UR Garcia PSU MD 13-10
    174: #2 Ruth vs #8 Heflin PSU MD 17-10
    184: #2 Wright vs #10 Magrum PSU Dec 20-10
    197: #12 McIntosh vs UR Camp PSU Dec 23-10
    Hwt: #6 Wade vs #15 Capone PSU Dec 26-10

    A number of bouts where PSU is favored could go to tOSU: 157, 197, Hwt. tOSU probably is also hoping for wins at 125, 149--but I don't think so. If Magrum is again unable to wrestle, I look for MD or better for QW. A problem for tOSU as for Iowa is that their biggest strength is where PSU is weakest.

    What are your predictions?

    I liked it better when I had my head in the sand and thought that tOSU was still at least a year away from competing for the Big 10 team championship. I think Chop has it about right.

    I haven't seen the Buckeyes wrestle yet, so these are pretty blind:
    125: #8 Megaludis vs #15 DiJulius PSU Dec 3-0
    133: UR Martelloti vs #4 L Stieber OSU MD 3-4 (I'm picking Frank to be motivated after the last match and not get decked twice in a row)
    141: UR Pearsall vs #7 H Stieber OSU MD 3-8
    149: #1 Molinaro vs #16 Cessari PSU MD 7-8
    157: #8 Alton vs UR Demas PSU Dec 11-8
    165: #1 Taylor vs UR Garcia PSU TF 16-8
    174: #2 Ruth vs #8 Heflin PSU MD 21-8
    184: #2 Wright vs #10 Magrum PSU Dec 24-8
    197: #12 McIntosh vs UR Camp PSU Dec 27-8
    Hwt: #6 Wade vs #15 Capone PSU Dec 30-8

    wow that seems like a big win. I wouldn't be surprised if Ohio State picked up one more match (my pick would be 197 or hwt) getting this down to 27-11 if martelotti does give up 2 in a row, 27-14. I don't see anything closer right now.

    Definitely has a few good matchups here.

    125 - Megaludis v DiJulius - DiJulius only has one move but it is good. Two true frosh blue chip recruits going at it. Nice
    165 - Taylor v Garcia - Can he get bonus here or will he try for the pin again?
    174 - Ruth v Heflin - Just to see if Ruth can get the major. Heflin in a counter wrestler so I am not sure he does.
    197 - McIntosh v Camp See 125. #1 @ 189 vs #1 @ 215
    285 - Wade v Capone Always interesting when Cam Wade goes up against a top 15 heavy. You never know.

    PSU matches up too well with tOSU. tOSU has to get upsets at 125, 197, and heavy as well as dominating wins at 133 and 141 to stand a chance.

    Stiebers roll, Demas wins, Garcia hangs in there, Camp wins. Tessari almost gets big upset. Psu 23-15

    It's interesting about Wade this year. I agree with your comment in the past. But, his 3 counting losses are to #3,4,5. He has beaten #7, 10, 12 (If you swap Raising for Telford) and 17. So, this year he really doesn't have any bad losses so far.

    Since I only missed the OSU vs Iowa prediction by Tessari not pulling off the pin, I'll give this one a shot too.

    Dijulius WBD 3-0 (Upset of the night)
    Stieber MD 7-0
    Stieber MD 11-0
    Molinaro WBD 11-3 (Molinaro could pin him if Tessari goes for a big move)
    Demas WBD 14-3
    Garcia Pinfall!! Just kidding. Taylor with a tech 14-8
    Ruth WBD 14-11
    Wright WBD 14-14 (if Magrum wrestles. If not, it's a major for Wright)
    Campo WBD 17-14
    Wade WBD 17-17 tOSU wins by criteria

    (Unless Magrum doesn't wrestle. Then I got it 18-17 PSU)
