    x 2 or 3 at this point

    He speaks well before and after matches. He wrestles really well. I fully respect and have to like him.

    I agree! I greatly respect and admire McD. A number of PSU fans think that Megaludis can/will beat him this year. I know that Megaludis believes he can/will. But I have to admit I don't see it. The scores between them have been reasonably close but I haven't seen NM have McD in danger.

    If you watch the finals match from last year, Nico was never even remotely close to scoring. All he did the entire match was try and prevent McD from coming around for 2. He keeps it close because he doesn't open up (which if he did it may have gotten ugly), but the score was not indicative of how one sided that match really was. It's certainly not impossible for him to beat Matt, but I don't see it happening.

    Tom, I know the possibilities are there, and I'm optimistic that some changes will bring OSU closer to having a good Nationals, but until it happens, I don't think I can expect it.

    As an Oklahoma State fan you have to kind of expect for us to

    1. Choke at nationals
    2. Always lose to Texas at the last second

    I know that's OSU's recent record. But it wasn't that long ago that they were winning 3 in a row. Why is it any different now?

    Even before we won 3 in a row we had been known as chokers. In the 90's we would have great regular seasons then would lose to Iowa at nationals. Shoot look at poor Mark Smith, only Smith brother never to win a national title.

    OSU's 157 will be a bear this year . I predict a top 5 place.
    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.

    So when you aren't winning titles, you're chokers. Got it.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
