Thread: Vaisforlovers Thanksgiving NCAA Prediction Extravaganza!

    Is Evans moving up an effort to make Iowa's line-up tougher, or is it simply that Evans can't make it down to 165 any longer? If it's the latter, what do Iowa fans think this does to their line-up? Make it stronger? Weaker? Or about the same overall? I guess you're switching a Moore for Lira. Sounds like Moore would be better than Lira, but Gambrall and Lofthouse may not be as tough up a weight (especially Lofthouse up 2 weights!).

    My guess would be Gambrall to the bench.

    I still have my doubts as to whether Lofthouse is an effective 184, he definitely isn't a 197.

    I was referring to this post when I brought up the discussion/comparison of Dong and Winston not your picks.

    I personally feel like a move like this can possibly hurt Iowa in duals but is probably neutral in tournaments if Evans feels like he can finish higher up on the podium for Iowa.

    I think against a team like Minnesota it hurts bc I think Evans had a propensity to break a guy like Yohn in a dual other than his loss to Yohn in the dual rematch but Yohn probably has success against Moore. Evans is going to find Storley very frustrating to wrestle against bc I don't think he's going to be able to turn Storley and I just think Storley is better from his feet.

    If that pushes Gambrall out and Lofthouse up, I think that's to Minnesotas advantage overall.

    I don't know if this move is actually happening. I kinda hope it does. It would be nice to have Moore, Evans, Lofthouse, Burak and Telford in the back half of the lineup. I'm not really a big fan of Gambrall. The guy has no offense. I'm not exactly sure how he placed 3rd. I think he can be good if he just opened up, but it's painfully obvious that he won't so I hope he's the odd man out.

    1. Dustin Kilgore
    2. Quentin Wright
    3. Matt Wilps
    4. Micah Burak
    5. Brent Haynes
    6. Scott Schiller
    7. Blake Rosholt
    8. Mario Gonzalez


    Killer is a man on a mission. Still gives up a lot of points for an elite guy, but I'm not seeing anyone who can match his pace for 7 minutes.

    Quentin is money in March by and large, and I'd be surprised to see him outside of the top 2. I felt he is one of the only guys who could threaten Dustin. I think he will avenge his loss to Wilps next time around.

    Wilps is a very sold guy in all positions. Very strong, physical, and pretty tough on top. I think he improves one notch from last years performance.

    4 may be a bit high for Micah, but I think he 3-2's his way to a nice 4th place finish. He knows who he is and does a nice job wrestling within himself.

    I've been on the Haynes bandwagon this year. He's got such great ability to put crazy scores up I think he puts it all together this season and winds up 5th. He's a scary match up for most guys.

    Schiller at this point is more hype than anything, but I like what I have seen though it's against less than stellar competition. He's aggressive and looking to score, and I think that serves him well this season.

    The sting of losing his starting spot to Cayle Byers has to still sting Rosholt and I think if he's healthy he places.

    Mario had an awesome run last year and had a taste of success. This year he places for the Illini.

    1. Alan Gelogaev
    2. Tony Nelson
    3. Dom Bradley
    4. Bobby Telford
    5. Jarrod Trice
    6. Chad Hanke
    7. Adam Chalfant
    8. Mike McMullan


    Z is the man. Stay healthy, and dominate. Nobody can touch you.

    I believe Nelson has separated somewhat from the rest of the field, and expect him to have a better gameplan for his re-match with Z and expect the score to have tightened.

    Dom looked good at the all star, and I think he'll do all he can to place high. I just don't see him having what it takes to pass Tony or Z.

    Tough field for Bobby, but it sounds like he put the time in. If he can get a takedown on his feet, he'll be a tough out for anyone.

    Jarrod Trice is boring, but he wins. That is all.

    I like Hanke a lot. Never thought he'd ever be considered elite, then somehow made the WTT finals a few years ago, which was insane to me. He's the only heavyweight to have beaten Z that I'm aware of, so maybe I'm selling him a bit short.

    Chalfant is a physical specimen in every sense of the word. Not going to find a much better athlete out there, and even though he wrestles for Indiana, I think he finds his way in the top 8.

    McMullan is tough but struggles with consistency. I think he places, but this is a really tough field this year. Who knows, he could get hot again and crash the finals for all I know. But as for right now I'm not counting on it.
