    Default Your choice for B1G team champ !! Dual meet !

    I predict Iowa as they have one weak weight class and a few champs and a lot of guys who'll take top 4 spots .

    Iowa has two weak weights imo: 97 and 49.

    PSU has 3 with 33,41,285. I think PSU could have more upside with their weak spots than Iowas, so it kinda breaks even.

    Minnesota truly has the fewest holes with their only "hole" a pretty serviceable 157.

    With the strength of their top, top level guys its foolish in my mind to predict anyone but Penn State.

    They've had holes each of the last two years and still won them both.

    I think PSU this year is strongest at NCAA's, next strongest at B1G's and most "vulnerable" in duals--especially because of match-ups. I see the Iowa dual at this point as very possibly 5:5 in matches with the result determined by bonus points. Even though PSU doesn't wrestle Minn, if they did I would see it 5:5 or 6:4 PSU (125, 149, 174 critical). I think PSU stacks up better against Iowa in tournaments this year than they do in dual because of how the weights match up. But, I still think PSU would win the dual on bonus points. In terms of a tOSU dual, I think the match-ups there work in PSU's favor.

    Iowa vs PSU dual

    Iowa wins 125, 133, 157(close), Heavy

    PSU wins 149, 165, 184, 197

    Toss-ups 141(I think Ballweg takes this but I also think Pearsall is being undervalued a bit), 174

    Could be 6:4 either direction or 5:5. If it's 5:5 I see too much bonus for PSU. If Iowa wins 6 they have a good shot, which is very possible

    No way Kelly starts at 165. If Evans doesn't go there Nick Moore will step in.

    I'm thinking he meant Evans but typed Kelly?
