I see the Iowa dual 5-5 and Minny 5-5 -all comes down to bonus .
I see tOSU winning at least 6 matches in both duals. But I'm biased without apology.
No mention of either Phillips or Courts. Without the potential upside ceilings of those 2 guys, that hurts tOSU's chances a bit this year.
tOSU vs Minn has some very interesting match-ups: Tessari-Ness; Heflin-Storey; L Stieber-Dardanes (he did beat him last year!); H Stieber-Dardanes plus Camp-Schiller
tOSU vs Iowa should be a great dual, but doesn't have as many intriguing matches--of course you have L Stieber-Ramos III, as well as Heflin-Lofthouse;
Mcd WMD triggas
Stieber wbd ramos(though tony will beat him ONCE this year)
Stieber wbd dziewa
Tessari wbd kelly
Dsj wbd demas
Evans wbd garcia
Lofthouse wbd heflin
Gg wbd magrum
Camp wbd burak
Telford wbd capone
Good prediction vais. Probably the same prediction made last year. But Demas and Garcia both stepped up last year. Yes, DSJ was just coming off injury. I remember being the only one predicting that win b/c of that. Garcia surprised me last year. I remember saying that it was the only match where I thought the better wrestler lost. But both Demas and Garcia now have wins over Iowa and confidence means a lot. You also predicted no bonuses. There will be a few. I also give Heflin the win.
IMO, Heflin beats Lofthouse making it 15-15.
That win for Garcia was the beginning and end of any semblance of a hot streak he would have. I think we know what happens to Demas against a correct DSJ.

Heflin could beat Lofthouse. Of course, he never has before. He had a chance to last year but Tommy boy(as he loves to do) hides Heflin for seeding purposes. Did the same thing with Perry.
I'd like to see Magrum stay healthy for an entire season . He is a hard nosed kid.
