    I feel like the NCAA finals gave people an inaccurate image of Pucillo. He really is a pretty aggressive wrestler and his strengths are being tough and aggressive in all 3 positions and staying strong all through the match. With that said, I don't think the matchup definitely favors Herbert, and would expect him to win. But I can still hope for pucillo...

    Yes, please don't blame Pucillo for that debacle at 184. That was a standard, run of the mill, Varner Special.

    I need no convincing. I'm as big of a fan of Pucillo as anyone could be outside of Ohio.

    Run of the mill, no, debacle, no.. If "the vice grip" would have had any offense we all know he would have had been the national champ. Undefeated to that point and stuck in a match with Pucillo who decided he also wouldn't do any offense.
    Varner had a great season and chose a piss poor way to end the year but don't put the blame squarely on Jake's shoulders. Pucillo showed me nothing and to me thats a "debacle".

    If Jake would have wrestled with an offensive strategy at all last year he wouldnt have put himself in the position to lose that match. In wrestling it is usually a mistake when your best offense is your defense.

    I totally agree Herkey, but I don't want to minimize the great year Varner had. He messed up his own bed and ended up sleeping in it at the finals.

    One loss is a great year by most standards. It's just too bad for him that the one loss came in the finals. Maybe he will adjust and become more offensive this season.

    Pucillo wrestled the match in a way he knew he could win. Why blame him for taking a style that would neutralize Varner.
