    VAIS,
    We agreed on every match save Ballweg-I haven't been impressed with Dardanes this year. Either of them really yet nick in particular.
    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.

    We only disagree on one (and this may just be me being a pessimistic fan).

    I'd put 41 down as a win for Iowa with the caveat that you mention that Dardanes' double could/should eliminate some of Ballweg's leg pass defense that he likes to use when guys shoot high c's on him.

    It was hard to separate my ballweg fandom and reality. It's possible that he's just really good now and is better than Nick. Love to be wrong as Mark is someone I admire for his dedication.

    Good writing VA, you have me excited to watch. It wasn't that much of a sell since it should be the best dual match up in the B10 this year, but still...

    VA obviously doesn't know what he's talking about.

    125 McDonough dec Thorn 3-0 Iowa
    133 Ramos maj Dardanes 7-0 Iowa
    141 Ballweg dec Dardanes 10-0 Iowa
    149 Ness dec Kelly 10-3 Iowa
    157 St. John maj Zilverburg 14-3 Iowa
    165 Yohn dec Moore 14-6 Iowa
    174 Evans dec Storley 17-6 Iowa
    184 Steinhaus dec Lofthouse 17-9 Iowa
    197 Schiller dec Burak 17-12 Iowa
    285 Nelson dec Telford 17-15 Iowa

    Dual will never really be in doubt. Maybe I'll take a nap around 3pm.

    Here are my picks:

    125--McD Dec 3-0 Iowa (McD has not been majoring people lately, ?weight problems)
    133--Ramos MD 7-0 Iowa
    141--Dardanes Dec 7-3 Iowa (though I think that Ballweg has a real shot here)
    149--Ness Dec 7-6 Iowa
    157--St John Dec 10-6 Iowa
    165--Yohn Dec 10-9 Iowa
    174--Storley Dec 10-12 Minnesota
    184--Steinhaus Dec 10-15 Minnesota
    197--Schiller Dec 10-18 Minnesota
    Hwt--Nelson Dec 10-21 Minnesota

    This is how I think each weight will come out, but it's also a worst-case scenario for Iowa, as they have real shots at 141, 165, 174.

    It's a shame that Minn & PSU don't wrestle this year and have all 3 teams wrestle each other. I think Minn matches up better with Iowa than PSU does.

    McDonough always seems to turn on the after burners just when people start thinking that he's "losing" his edge. I'll bet that he ends up finishing this season pretty dominant.
