141 will be Sherlock if Andrew does RS. I was hearing at the end of the year Andrew was having weight issues too. So he will want to go up I think. Sherlock is not Alton but would do a good job as a RS FS there but I doubt he would add any points at NCAAs. He has had a good year at opens. He came in as a 125 went up to 133 & then to 141. Luke Frey will RS probably.
RE Ruth/Wright the boards have all sort of rumors but I just don't see it & I haven't heard anything from anyone @ PSU. I think they are just enjoying the win & then looking at the Freestyle season.
Of course as much as Cael wants to RS every incoming class it will be hard to RS Megaludis & Alton if PSU wants to have a shot next year as Iowa will have a whole bunch of RS FS coming next year.
Frank if he did wouldn't be a favorite in my estimation as he wouldn't be as strong or have as good of a gas tank down there.
Been there tried that....no fricken way does the tank drop down again. If Dade moves up to 157, Frank will sit pat.
Taylor will be 165, the gap will be at 157. I believe Vollrath was wresting up a weight class at 165, so watch for those two to drop,
Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
Vollrath competed the almost the entire regular season at 157, then bumped to 165 for the last dual meet before Big 10's. He took 3rd at the Southern Scuffle at 157, which included a win over Saddoris from Navy. Not bad
I'm not sure if Dylan would beat Vollrath or not. He might very well, but Vollrath has been looking stronger and stronger--especially if he's at 157. But all of that is conditioned on Taylor's moving up to 165 which isn't definite in my understanding.
Most people forget that Vollrath's Dad was PSU's 150 lber in the late 70s (2x NQ I think) & both wrestled for Council Rock South which has been a PA HS wrestling hotbed for years, (UNC Coach C. D. Mock was from there) so Vollrath has some pedigree & skills. He looked much WIDER @ the B10s to bulk up to 165. I would not count him out at all.
Molinaro's back up Jame English beat Janzten & Rader earlier in the year @ the S&B when Frank was hurt so he is a talented tough kid as well. He might move up. Nick Fischer filled in at 65 & 74 last year as well. Kemerer I thought would do better at 57 but who knows if he will still be at PSU after Cael's comments about him being not coachable.
So PSU still has some question marks next year if they move their line up around, looking to fit in their talent.
Cornell had their "Murder's Row" last season but imagine if Megaludis starts, Alton DOESN'T RS & they find a solid 57. That could be a ridiculous line up. And that is with Cowburn siting on the bench & McIntosh RSing. And Campo could be headed else where but he does have a PSU offer on the table.
141 Andrew Alton
157 Dylan? Vollrath?
174 THe Truth
Yo kr, did you calculate those points yourself or find them on a website? I haven't been able to find a site that has all the point totals for everyone, I feel like there usually is at least one site that does it though
"Now class, I'd like for you to transition from downward dog....straight to FULL BRING!!!"
Do you really think David Taylor might go up to 165? The reason I ask is that it seems he would have a much better shot at an NCAA championship at 157 than at 165 where he would have to contend with folks like Andrew Howe.
