    Is this the first time Oliver has had a hard cut ? He was dominant in his matches I saw on Flo but he looked strong,quick and in great condition -this is the 2nd or 3rd time I've heard he gassed . Do you think cutting is playing a big part ?

    That is my only guess.

    He's looked very good at tournaments so far this year (where he could eat as the day went on), and then unreal wrestling freestyle this summer (where he weighed in the day before).

    In duals so far with 1 hour weigh ins he's had the underwhelming match with Ashmore, and then a match where he was good but not great against Ekstrom.

    I would feel more comfortable picking a pin than a major.

    After the lackluster performance of OSU ealier this week, I predict Minnesota will destroy OSU. Notice I've got Sonny at 197 to tire-out the Russian.

    125 MN Sanders Maj 4-0
    133 MN Ness Fall 10-0
    141 MN Thorn Dec 13-0
    149 MN Mason Dec 16-0
    157 OSU Erisman Dec 16-3
    165 MN DS Maj 20-3
    174 MN Glasser Dec 23-3
    184 OSU Fall 23-9
    197 MN Yohn Maj 27-9
    HWT OSU Dec 27-12

    Glasser over James? Yohn MAJORS Gelogaev bumping up a weight?

    I take it you're an OSU fan?

    Jeff James is a Sooner, not a Cowboy.

    Glasser will have Chris McNeil, the guy James majored last night.

    Gold, Here's my thinking. Sonny Yohn at 84 would be a close match, could go either way. I'm not sold on Nord at 97 right now. The cutting seems to be to much for him, and the Russian may very well catch him in the first. MN could end up losing a dec & fall to OSU at those two weights. A dec & fall makes MN -9

    But, the Russian seems to be having the same problems with cutting. I say we send the highly conditioned Yohn up to 97 and let him wear out the Russian, Yohn should be able to score big in the 3rd when the Russian is gassed to get the major. So even if Yohn-lite gets pinned at 84, the real Yohn's major will make MN -2

    Well, the latest results from OSU-OU Bedlam makes me want to rethink this meet.
    I'll give Glasser a bigger edge now. And if Nord or Eidenshenk has a decent gas tank, 197 may be closer, like a decision instead of a fall.
    That would make it 17-16 Minnesota

    125: #4 Zach Sanders v. #7 Chris Notte 4-0
    Sanders proves why he's underranked at number 4.

    133: #2 Jayson Ness v. #6 Jordan Oliver 7-0
    Ness wins a this one, but Oliver is the real deal.

    141: #4 Mike Thorn v. #5 Jamal Parks 7-3
    Parks prevails with too much power for hard-working Thorn.

    149: #9 Mario Mason v. #12 Albert White 10-3
    Mason wins a close one over talented White.

    157: #13 Jake Deitchler v. #9 Neil Erisman 10-6 Minnesota
    Deitchler is banged up, and this early battle goes to Erisman.

    165: #1 Dustin Schlatter v. #12 Alex Meade 14-6 Minnesota
    We'll see the best of Schlatter. Could be a major.

    174: UR Scott Glasser v. UR Chris McNeil 17-6 Minnesota
    Could go either way depending on Glasser's performance.

    184: #16 Sonny Yohn v. #10 Clayton Foster 17-9 Minnesota
    Foster is no pushover, and this will be a test of Yohn's improvement.

    197: UR Joe Nord v. #4 Alan Gelogaev 17-15 Minnesota
    The beast from the East will put a big hurt'n on hapless Nord. WBF

    285: #8 Ben Berhow v. #2 Jared Rosholt 17-18 Oklahoma State
    Rosholt will win a close one over an improved Berhow.

    Frankly, this meet could go either way, with the winner getting bragging rights, and maybe even a slight recruiting advantage.

    Just read No JAKE at 157 -that could be a 9 point swing .
