Thread: Iowa vs Ohio St Dual Predictions

  1. #1

    Default Iowa vs Ohio St Dual Predictions

    I'm really looking forward to today and tomorrow's Scuffle. But I thought I'd start the ball on the biggest dual of the week--Iowa vs tOSU. We all know that tOSU blasted them last year and Iowa will be out for blood. How do you think it will play out? Here are my predictions assuming everyone is healthy:

    125--McD MD Triggas 4-0 Iowa
    133--Stieber Dec Ramos 4-3 Iowa
    141--Stieber Dec Ballweg 4-6 tOSU
    149--Tessari/Paddock Dec Kelly 4-9 tOSU
    157--DSJ Dec Demas 7-9 tOSU
    165--Moore Dec Martin 10-9 Iowa
    174--Evans Dec Heflin 13-9 Iowa
    184--Courts Dec Lofthouse 13-12 Iowa
    197--Camp Dec Burak 13-15 tOSU
    Hwt--Telford Dec Capone 16-15 Iowa

    I don't expect a lot of bonus points if everyone is healthy and the match may likely be decided by bonus points. Key weights are 174 & 184. I gave one to each. If someone gets "lucky" and gets a fall, that could be the difference.

    I don't see Kenny beating Lofthouse. Agree with the rest.

    19-12 Iowa

    Agree that Courts beating Lofthouse is a bit of a flyer pick. But it seemd the one with the best possibility. You can't always pick the favorite.

    McD Dec Triggas 3-0 Iowa
    Logan Dec Ramos 3-3
    Hunter Dec Ballweg 6-3 tOSU
    Tessari Dec Kelly 9-3 tOSU
    St John Dec Demas 9-6tOSU
    Moore Dec Martin 9-9 (I look at this one as being 50/50)
    Heflin Dec Evans 12-9 tOSU (50/50)
    Lofthouse Dec Courts 12-12 (50/50)
    Camp Dec Burak 15-12 tOSU
    Telford Dec Capone 15-15

    with no majors what would be the criteria to break the tie?

    I didn't give any majors out, but I feel like McD is the only Iowa guy who can major tOSU. That being said, I believe the buckeyes have three guys who can major Iowa.

    Unless you're in a dual tournament where advancement is required, there isn't one.

    That rule changed last year.

    That's how Okey St. Beat Iowa last year. It was a tie, they won on criteria.

    That wasn't a dual tournament.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Sure enough...I'd forgotten that dual was tied last year again.

    Thinking back to two years ago when they tied and stayed tied.

    Predictions:

    125: McDonough MD Triggas
    133: Stieber DEC Ramos
    141: Stieber DEC Ballweg
    149: tOSU DEC Kelly
    157: St. John MD Demas
    165: Moore DEC Martin
    174: Evans DEC Heflin
    184: Lofthouse DEC
    197: Camp MD Burak
    HW: Telford DEC Capone

    Final score: 20-13 Iowa

    As often happens, bonus points and a match up between lower tier wrestlers (Martin vs. Moore) looms large over the dual.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...
