    Hopefully I have the lineups right


    125 Mega WBD Thorn PSU 3-0
    133 Martlotti LMD Dardanes Minny 4-3
    141 Pearsall LBD Dardanes Minny 7-3
    149 A Alton WBD Ness Minny 7-6
    157 D Alton WBD Zilverburg PSU 9-7
    165 Taylor WTF Yohn PSU 14-7
    174 Brown LBD Storley PSU 14-10
    184 Ruth WBD Steinhaus PSU 17-10
    197 Wright WMD Schiller PSU 21-10
    Hwt Gingrich LBF Nelson PSU 21-16

    I think these are reasonable picks. My homer picks would be Mega getting bonus points, Brown beating Storley, and Gingrich not getting pinned. That score is 25-11. I would expect Minny homers to go with Ness over A Alton and Steinhaus over Ruth (good luck) giving Minny the 22-15 win.

    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Toss-ups 141(I think Ballweg takes this but I also think Pearsall is being undervalued a bit), 174

    Could be 6:4 either direction or 5:5. If it's 5:5 I see too much bonus for PSU. If Iowa wins 6 they have a good shot, which is very possible
    Can't argue with that analysis. Looks about right.

    Not being a Minny fan, it's kind of crazy for me to try to speak for them. But, since I'm a bit crazy, I will anyway. I think that many think that Thorn can beat Megaludis (assuming he adjusts well to the weight), Ness beats A Alton, and Schiller not getting MD'ed by Wright (and maybe even beating him, since Wright has lost both duals to Minn the past 2 years).

    Alton/Ness toss up and Schiller is quite good .Ness wins and it is 19-18 Minny .

    Has Schiller beaten anyone (other than MacIntosh)? I don't know much of him.

    49 and 74 are big swing matches.

    So in your world, the returning NCAA finalist beating A Alton is a homer pick?

    I think what these predictions are showing is that PSU is a slight favorite with Iowa and Minnesota right on their heels. You throw in a team like Ohio State and you have a crazy loaded conference. That isn't even mentioning solid Illinois and Nebraska teams. The great thing about wrestling is that Minnesota or Iowa could have someone make huge strides in the off season and really throw a wrench into PSU's plan. Who would have thought Ed Ruth and David Taylor would have had the years they had two years ago and propel PSU to a national title? Sure people had high expectations but not many expected them to dominate the way they have. Anything can happen and anyone can step up or disappoint at the wrong time. Can't freaking wait!!!!
