    I felt bad for Matt Powless, Russ. Good kid. Puts his time in. I wanted to see a repeat of last years sucess. When did Degain leave and to where(and why)?
    Sota doing very well; they should be proud of their performance this year: 7 AA and all but one coming back. As a group they wrestled up to or over their seeds.
    Prediction:
    125: McD
    133: Oliver
    141: Russell
    149: Tank(dammit)
    157: Dake
    167: Taylor(by fall and walks away with MVW and Hodge
    177: Gooch
    184: Q
    197: Simaz
    284: Nelson(boy did Flores get dinged last nite. He staggered around like a drunken sailor after getting his bell rung. I felt that he was by far the class of the big boys)
    Sanders: 3
    Dardenes: 6
    Storley: 4
    House:3
    Yohn:4

    We lose both S Yohn and Sanders, not just Sanders but I DO believe Schiller will fill in admirably, Ness will move up to 157 and fill that gap and Thorn, Dardanes's will fill in behind him. Our big opportunity will be at 125 where I'm not sure we've got anyone ready to step in at a high level. It may be Cody Phillips from the get go.

    While its not official mathematically its all but official in reality, congrats to KR, TomWright, and the rest of the Penn State fans on the board for the second straight title. That run of guys through your middleweights is just so tough.

    Team Scores
    1. Penn State: 124
    2. Minnesota: 101.5
    3. Iowa: 93
    4. Cornell: 86
    5. Ohio State: 60

    Finals
    125: #1 Matt McDonough (Iowa) v. #10 Nico Megaludis (Penn State)
    133: #1 Jordan Oliver (Oklahoma State) v. #2 Logan Stieber (Ohio State)
    141: #1 Kellen Russell (Michigan) v. #3 Montell Marion (Iowa)
    149: #1 Frank Molinaro (Penn State) v. #7 Dylan Ness (Minnesota)
    157: #1 Kyle Dake (Cornell) v. #2 Derek St. John (Iowa)
    165: #1 David Taylor (Penn State) v. #11 Brandon Hatchett (Lehigh)
    174: #1 Ed Ruth (Penn State) v. #3 Nick Amuchastegui (Stanford)
    184: #4 Steve Bosak (Cornell) v. #6 Quentin Wright (Penn State)
    197: #1 Cam Simaz (Cornell) v. #2 Chris Honeycutt (Edinboro)
    285: #2 Tony Nelson (Minnesota) v. #4 Zach Rey (Lehigh)
    Don't jinx us, we're not there yet! But thanks.

    Interesting group of finalists - five returning champs, three returning second-placers (including ex-champ McD).

    125 - The final's loss of last year has to be great additional motivation. McD wins here in a close one.
    133- Oliver is just a tad too much in this weight class. How did he lose this year? Don't see it happening in the finals. Oliver.
    141 - Rematch of last year's semi. Russell in another close one. You have to wonder how Marion would do if his head was screwed on straight.
    149 - Tank will not get this close and come up short again. As with McD, the final's loss is great additional motivation.
    157 - Dake. Hopefully St. John doesn't choose down.
    165 - Man on a mission. Again, bitter taste of final's loss gets (partly) washed away. Taylor by pin or TF.
    174 - I truly believe if Ruth didn't have his leg go dead on him last year, he was in the final. Ruth is much sharper mentally this year and is at another level of quickness and explosiveness than anyone else at the weight. Ruth gets revenge for last year's semi.
    184 - I vaguely remember hearing that Wright has never lost to Bosak. Don't see it changing tonight. Wright.
    197 - Simaz makes up for past disappointments at Nationals. Simaz.
    285 - I hate the way he wrestles and I think he's got a dirty streak, but maybe having to go up against Mocco every day does that to you. Rey.

    Pat told me he had to make a career change . He and his wife just had their 3rd? child and an asst. coaches salary doesn't go too far.I wish Pat NOTHING BUT THE BEST-he was the BEST hwt. coach in the B1G ! Everhart,Powless ,Alcala, and chalfant all improved greatly under Pat.
    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.

    Monroeville trio has looked very good.
    Speaking of Monroeville trio--won't it be a Monroeville quartet next year with Phillips?

    Falcon--I don't understand why Ok St has so underperformed for quite a few years now. I know the loss of Z really hurt, but that doesn't explain everything. Ok St has looked awfully tough in duals, but just doesn't seem up for the NCAA's. Any explanations? I'm sure it's driving Smith crazy!

    I believe that despite the fact that both Wright and Bosak were Centre County, PA HS wrestlers, they never wrestled until this year at the Scuffle when Wright won 10-3 I believe. I think that's the only time they've met before.

    Nice to see Sanders go out with a hard fought win over Perrelli. Perrelli had a really nice little tourney.
