Thread: Nittany Lion Open

  1. #1

    Default Nittany Lion Open

    Last year, Penn State put 8 of their guys in the finals and won 7 titles. Just how dominant do you think they will be this year?

    I say they put 11 in the finals and win 8 titles.

    Nah, I don't think that many titles.

    I think 11 finals 8 champs is a bit optimistic. I think PSU will win 7 weights: 125, 149 (English--A Alton isn't wrestling from what I hear) 157, 165, 174 (although Asper will be very tough), 184, 197. I think PSU will get 2 additional finalists among: 197 (McIntosh) and 133, Hwt (not sure which guy at 133 & Hwt). That makes 7 champs and 9 finalists, if all goes well. Brown vs Asper should be a good one!

    Purely by the seeding (we all know how that normally works out!!!), here's where PSU would fall...

    125 Finalist (Megaludis)
    133 Semi-finalist (Conaway)
    141 Quarter-finalist (Pearsall)
    149 Finalist (Alton/English) If both wrestle, could be an all-PSU final
    157 Finalist (Alton)
    165 Finalist (Taylor)
    174 Finalist (Brown)
    184 Finalist (Ruth)
    197 Finalist (Q)
    285 Semi-finalist (Lawson/Gingrich) Doubt they would meet in the SF, as they'll likely be placed on opposite sides of the bracket

    My guess is 8 finalists and 7 champs.

    Sounds about right...

    Have they released seeding or brackets for this yet?

    Sounds like A Alton will be wrestling in the NLO after all. He and English may have their elimination bout there!
