    Of the 4 bouts I give to Nebraska, 184 is the closest to a toss-up. It really is a toss-up. Even though QW did beat him, I was impressed by Ihnen in that match. Other than this loss to QW, Ihnen has only lost 2 close bouts to LeBlanc all year. But Steinhaus is no slouch either and already has a win over Wright this year. 184 and 141 look to be the best match-ups.

    Funny, I was impressed by Q. He had some spectacular throws and was in control of the entire match. Ihnen scored in the 3rd to make the score respectable.

    I was impressed by QW as well, except for the hard ride that Ihnen put on him in the 2nd period. I would like to see QW mix in more doubles along with his throws. He did that at the NCAA's last year. I hope he will do it again. He had not faced Ihned before. They guys that have wrestled him multiple times like Steinhaus and Hamlin know what to look for on his throws.

    If you guys didn't see the match on the Big 10 network you have to watch it. The students who did the play by play were hilarious. They must have never watched a wrestling match before. A guy would stand up and get taken back to the mat and the announcers would say he got 2 for a takedown, then they'd sound surprised when they'd say, no points were awarded. On takedowns if a scramble ensued and a takedown was scored they'd call it a reversal. The best was when Ed Ruth locked up a near side cradle and rolled through, they said that Koehn had Ruth on his back, seconds later Ruth got the pin and they were all confused. I've never seen anything like it! It was awesome comedy! I was laughing the whole time, it was hard to concentrate on the matches because you just knew they were going to say something stupid, but they sounded so confident saying it.

    Until he got pinned Koehn was going a great job with Ruth. He got in on several single legs and tripped Ruth but couldn't finish. Ruth seemed too overconfident and he's lucky he didn't get taken down. The QW Ihnen match was really fun to watch. The difference was the lateral drop QW got in the first period off of an Ihnen shot. There were several really good throw situations where it ended up neutral that could have gone either way. Ihnen was getting stronger the longer the match went on. I still can't get over the announcers, absolutely hilarious! DC
