    My guess would be Hunter, Tessari, and Camp.

    He can correct me if I'm wrong.

    You are correct. The most likely to bonus is Camp in my opinion. Not because I think Camp is a world beater or anything, but because Burak is really not very good. Relativity speaking of course.

    Didn't a young Ohio State team kick the tar out of Iowa last year?

    they did. Rest assured Iowa did not go to the Midlands for a reason. They will be ready to go for this dual.

    Matches that worry me as an Iowa fan:

    141- If Ballweg gets handled does it hurt his confidence? He is already too tentative at times
    149- I don't think Kelly will ever be a world beater but if he has confidence he tends to be relatively competative. I worry about the big ten schedule hurting his ego
    165- I have a gut feeling that Moore might lose this match
    184- See the above concern

    I left 133 out because even if Ramos loses he isn't going to lose confidence in himself and Stieber is damn good. I pretty much feel the same way about 174. I'm a little surprised that everyone seems to be picking Evans

    Here are my thoughts...

    125 - McD MD Triggas 4-0
    133 - Steiber Dec Ramos 4-3
    141 - Steiber Dec Ballweg 4-6
    149 - Tessari Dec Kelly 4-9
    157 - St John MD Demas 8-9
    165 - Moore Dec Martin 11-9
    174 - Heflin Dec Evans 11-12
    184 - Lofthouse Dec Courts 14-12
    197 - Camp Dec Burak 14-15
    HWT - Telford Dec Capone 17-15

    I actually don't think it will be this close as an Iowa upset will happen somewhere, I just didn't know where to guess it. I will take 20-12 Iowa as the final.
    Looking forward to being there in person, CHA is going to be rocking!

    125 - McD Dec Triggas 3-0 Iowa
    133 - Stieber MD Ramos 3-4 tOSU
    141 - Stieber Dec Ballweg 3-7 tOSU
    149 - Paddock Dec Kelly 3-10
    157 - St John Dec Demas 6-10 tOSU
    165 - Moore Dec Martin 9-10 tOSU
    174 - Heflin Dec Evans 9-13 tOSU
    184 - Lofthouse Dec Courts 12-13 tOSU
    197 - Camp Dec Burak 12-16 tOSU
    HWT - Telford Dec Capone 15-16 tOSU

    Notes: Stieber MD over Ramos based on both results from 12/16 when both faced Jamie Franco of Hofstra. Plus Logan has nothing below a MD this season. I think Paddock will wrestle at 149. 25% chance Demas pulls the upset same as last year at 157. 165 could go either way, but I gave the edge to Iowa since the match is at Iowa. 174 could go to Iowa if Heflin does not take the mat. Courts has about a 40% chance of taking 184. Outside chance of Capone knocking off Telford. This will be an exciting match and not the shellacing that "kool-aid drinking" Wiltz is predicting.

    Lol at your percentages Whippet. Are those facts?

    125 McDonough MD Triggas 4-0 Iowa
    Triggas has lost to Josh Martinez once and Connor Youtsey twice THIS YEAR. Triggas only has a winning pct of 72%. Matt McDounough has been a national finalist 100% of the times he's been in the tournament. Need I say more?

    133 Ramos dec Steibler 7-0 Iowa
    Ramos is undefeated in CHA, which is 100%. That includes a win over Jordan Oliver (after he shed the Stalliver). I would call it a major since Ramos has nothing below a MD this season, but Steibler is a returning national champion like Oliver was last year so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    141 Steibler maj Ballweg 7-4 Iowa

    Ballweg is wrestling tough this year but this Hunter is very good and will get the bonus.

    149 Tessari dec Kelly 7-7 Iowa (criteria)

    I like Kellys motor but I'm not picking him until he beats someone good.

    157 St. John maj Demas 11-7 Iowa

    St. John is on a whole other level and will get the major. There is a 75% chance that Demas will not pull the upset according to Whippet.

    165 Moore dec Martin 14-7 Iowa

    I'm not a big believer in Nick but I agree with Whippet. The match is at Carver so he will win.

    174 Evans dec Heflin 17-7 Iowa

    174 will go to Iowa even if Heflin takes the mat. First of all Heflin will probably be a bit rusty. Secondly, Evans would not lose to him even if he wasnt. Evans is a man. Have you seen is stache?

    184 Lofthouse dec Courts 20-7 Iowa

    Courts has been less than impressive this year. Uncle Luke has done a great job getting Eazy E to open up this year and it could get U G L Y for Kenny. Whippet your 60% chance of Lofthouse winning is too low.

    197 Campollatano dec Burak 20-10 Iowa

    Andrew is doing great this year and Burak is not. (great fact huh Whippet?)

    HWT Telford dec Capone 23-10 Iowa
    Telford is good. Capone is not. (thats two facts)

    Iowa's loss at fOSU was a fluke last year. This year will be the "shellacing" that Wiltz predicts.
