    Re: Minnesota v. Purdue Updates

    And "Nord" is in the state motto too--I think it is French for north (as in "star of the north"). Should be interesting to see how it shakes out.
  2. Re: Slaton continues to rise to the occasion

    I kind of like the phrase "nuttier than squirrel sh!t," which one of Frey's teammates at Cornell apparently used to describe Frey. I agree that it would be fun to wrestle for Brands and as a...

    Re: #7 Ohio State Edges #6 Michigan

    Amen to that. If I had to pick someone I wanted my son emulate--not just as a wrestler, but as a student-athlete--it would be Tann. (And I happen to like Sponseller, even if he is a Buckeye, but I...

    Re: Minnesota v. Purdue Updates

    So what is going on at HWT for Minnesota? After Nord appeared against Dustin Fox, I wondered if he had won a wrestle-off, but then Berhow is back in the line-up today.

    Re: Iowa v. Northwestern

    Great descriptions of the matches--so thanks for that, JensenS. But I have to say that using "demure" to describe a wrestling match gave me some pause.

    Re: Minnesota's Michigan Trip

    Thanks for the information, guys. Any word on how Yohn has looked in the room? His high school rival, Clayton Foster at Okie St., has had a pretty respectable true freshman year after moving up to...

    Re: Minnesota's Michigan Trip

    LoSt -- that was a good blog (and I did leave a comment). I thought that Eidenschink was the expected starter next year and not McPhail. Is Eidy still hurt or is he just taking redshirt since he...

    Re: Minnesota's Michigan Trip

    The cradle has been noticeably absent. Let's hope he finishes strong. He has shown some ability to solve guys that have beaten him. I will be pulling for the entire team down the stretch, but I...

    Re: Minnesota's Michigan Trip

    That bums me out to see Mack lose again--especially to another underclassman. I guess that is how Illinois fans felt when he was taking it to Mark Jayne. Even though Jayson Ness has had an amazing...

    Re: Minnesota's Michigan Trip

    Just a clarification--the notes list Kish OR Kuhlman.

    That was a good post.
  12. Re: Minnesota v. Iowa Predictions & Discussion

    The results against Caramanica are interesting, but apart from the transitive property not applying to wrestling (e.g., Becker beats Henning, Henning splits with Poeta and CP, Becker loses to Poeta...
  13. Re: Minnesota v. Iowa Predictions & Discussion

    Interesting result from Reiter and Slaton's previous meeting. I agree that the first takedown is huge. If Slaton gets the first takedown and rides Reiter like Kenny Jordan did, Reiter will have a...
  14. Re: Favorite Wrestlers: Not On Your Favorite Team

    That game me a chuckle. I have twins that are now three and a half and have a black hole in terms of memories during the first nine months. I truly cannot remember anything.
  15. Re: Minnesota v. Iowa Predictions & Discussion

    I think this dual is really tough to call, but everything has to go right for the Gophers to win. I'm starting with the individual matches where I see a clear edge.

    125--Ness by decision. ...

    Re: Most Improved Wrestlers

    Keddy is definitely on the list for me.

    Even though it seems strange to mention a NCAA finalist on a most-improved list, Varner sure seems to have improved a lot. He obviously beat Kish in the...

    Phillip Keddy

    Is it just me or has Keddy really improved over last year? Last year I thought of him as a bruiser, but otherwise didn't think that he showed much. I was impressed with how tough he wrestled...

    Re: Flash Flanagan results

    Could any of Minnesota's other 197-pounders beat Lofthouse? Does anyone know how Yohn does in the room against those guys at 197? Not that you would want to see him burn a red-shirt at this point,...

    Re: Dustin Schlatter and Brent Metcalf.

    Even though Metcalf is obviously great, I think that you have to go with Schlatter given what he has accomplished so far in his career. But I honestly don't know what to expect. Despite the average...

    Forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere, but does anyone expect any changes to the Gophers' line-up based on results at the Scuffle? Any chance that we will see Nord in the line-up at Hwt...
