Thread: #3 Cornell v. #6 Maryland Predictions/Discussion

    I love Cornells team and the way they wrestle, especially after beating ISU at nat duals last year, but I am reluctant to get high on Maryland yet. They have a good coach and some very nice wrestlers but I just cant wrap my arms around them being the sixth best team in the nation. Maybe its because I havnt seen them in person yet.

    I don't think you can draw real conclusions about any freshman in their first dual match in college. He certainly won't back down against Krom - Dake has all the confidence in the world. But, let the season play out. I think Kyle Dake will be an AA contender by the end of the season. Those who watched him at Binghamton last weekend were very impressed at the improvement he's already made.

    That would definitely be interesting to see though if said 25 pounder is able to make 25 and winds up in the line up

    Certainly would swing the dual back into Cornell's favor.
    Are we not allowed to say Nickersons name around here..haha.

    It sounds like he's Lord Voldemort and is "he-who-must-not-be-named."

    Not that I've...umm...ever read those books...ahem.

    Hard to know what Hudson will do. Could stick, or be stuck...never can tell and Simaz is no slouch.

    Let the record show that I picked Steve Bell to beat a good opponent.

    It should be a really good dual and I can't even fathom making a guess. There are so many bouts that I consider "toss-ups' that it is tough to predict what can happen. I think 125, 133, 149, 157, 174, 184, and HWT are all matches that could go eithr way (unless Nickerson isn in the lineup) I don't think Dake is going to come that close to beating Alex Krom. I think Krom wins by a comfotable margin (3-5 points).

    Don't be ashamed. I've read the books several times.
