Nice seeding dilemma
Nico > Mele > Delgado > McD > Sanders > Nico
McD put himself back on top
Barring brain hemmorage no one should touch him the rest of the year
So is Thorn officially done for the year?
Marion needs to find his offense again if the Hawkeyes expect to make a run at the title
Kelly made me look good for about 4 minutes
Ness showed his potential
I can appreciate JensenS stress
Gopher fans wondering about the could-have-beens with Deitchler
Should take a poll on this match
Evans was awesome?
Yohn was pathetic?
Did Storely secure the B1G 2nd seed? I think so.
184 & 197
Iowa obviously will be better with GG back here
I guess the 197 experiment has admittedly failed.
Will Wagner go up or Lira?
Raising literally landed on Nelson in crunched last year at the B1gs. Nelson seemed to have completely forgotten about having a 285 man drive him into the mat. Gohper fans could complain about not ggetting the pin but getting a solid win over a guy who beat you convincingly before is a step up & that is all you want at this time of year heading into March.
RIP Jacob Schlottke - 1984-2011

Sanders- He has ridden everyone all season except McD. He has escaped all season except McD. He's been a td machine all season except against McD. I thought this was Sanders year, but he has to hope someone else upsets McD.
Dardanes- Glad Minny has them.
Ness- He is the Second Coming.
Cody Yohn- Not everyone is a McD freak of nature. Here is my Guillotine post:
"Everybody is ragging on Cody for getting pinned. It's time for people to start looking at the big picture.
As a freshman Cody came to the U as a 174 lber and still growing. He wrestled one match at 184 and started out 16-6 at 174 until the coaches said he needed to make the cut to 165 for the good of the team. He then went 7-10 at 165.
The next year again the coaches asked him to cut for the good of the team. He started out strong at 19-4 until the weight cut again took its toll and he went 9-9 the rest of the way.
This year he is asked once again to be the 165 lber and again the massive weight cut has taken its toll. He starts out strong 11-2, majoring Bailey (16th),beating Peppleman, Ottinger (22), Sulzer (19), and battling Sorenson (4) in a close loss before the inevitable fade begins as the grind of the season wears him down to nothing.
Anyone who has cut too much weight in their career knows what is happening here. The sad truth is that the Gophers have not had a 165 lber in the room for the last four years. Cody his sacrificing his career for the good of the team."
Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.
One, two, Evans is coming for you...
That makes no sense. He'd theoretically have a tougher cut early on and like every other wrestler in the world, either the situation would improve or it wouldn't but that he has early season success followed up by late season struggles doesn't make much sense to me logically. Just so you know, anyone that has ever wrestled or had a child wrestle understands and empathizes with this situation. I furthermore don't think Minnesota has ever told a kid to go to a weight they don't think they can have success at? We don't have ridiculous weight cutters on this squad. If he was good enough to go up and hold down 174 I think Minny would have let him compete there. Ortiz had been at 165 before and JD at 157 and Storley could have saved his redshirt.
I'm not bashing the kid. He looked I'll to me or like he had hit his head hard either Sunday or perhaps Friday.

"Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until they speak."
I actually created a POLL here about 165 Evans vs Yohn
POLL: Was Evans Awesome? Did Yohn Suck?
