Geasman went for a headlock, missed it and got reversed to his back for a 2-point near fall (down 4-1). He got a quick escape and then with about 25 seconds left came within 6 inches of a tieing takedown - he took him down with his toes 6" out of bounds. Geasman then dove for a desperation takedown attempt and got stuffed for the last 2 points. Geasman lost 6-2.

    2nd round consis - opponent tries body lock, Geasman secures his better - 5 point move. Gives release to start 2nd - scores takedown, leads 7-1. Chooses down in 3rd escapes, scores takedown - wins 10 -1.

    All-american consi round - Geasman works hard to secure cradle, scores TD and 3 pt near fall for 5-0 lead. Turns him 3 times from the same initial hold for no additional points. Switches off to a power half for the fall. He looks really tough - strong possibility he finishes 3 - 5.
    Thanks for the update, this is really exciting to me. MIT's last AA was 1983. I wrestled there in the late 1980's and we had decent teams for our division. The team has had some tough times in recent years and hasn't been filling out a complete roster.

    Another little bit of trivia. The last MIT heavyweigth AA was Eralnd van Lidth de Juede who was runnerup in 1976. He then went onto fame as Grossburger in "Stir Crazy" and Dynamo in "The Running Man".

    Geesman avenges his earlier 6-4 loss to Bilquist of Del Valley with 8-1 win in the consi semi's and then pins the #1 seed in 39 seconds to get third.

    ODH - I have to be honest - if he doesn't try for that headlock in the 3rd period of his first round match, he could be in tonight's finals. He has good enough skills, but he is so aggresive and so physical he just dominates guys. He is my surprise (for me) star of the tournament so far.

    As an aside - I wish Matt Fields had the same fire.

    Trusty - Lang still only tried 1 shot in his rematch with Nothern. The difference is - he got this one, hit a power half and flattened Nothern in .59.
