    Going in we knew how crazy tough 174 was. Glad to see it isn't disappointing

    I can't believe how gassed Grajales looked. Especially this late in the season, wrestling against an opponent that wasn't in OSU's starting line up this year. He was sucking wind hard in the second period.

    Yes, Evans was the only one of the top 4 seeds to make it out of the quarters!!

    Only a wild guess, but I'll bet that it wasn't the weight cut that had him so out of gas.
    UNI Panthers...Because it's just right.

    Kokish the biggest upset as he had previously beaten Blanton with highlight reel tds.

    I just don't see it...David Thorn is not elite. I don't think he'll place"

    It's usually tough to tell when he's gassing because he ALWAYS wrestles the same way and he always looks bored or like he's stalling before he explodes and scores.

    Kept waiting for it, but he just didn't have it in him.



    By the way, what in the hell is going on with McDonough? 5-4 vs Malone? This is NOT the same McDonough who racked up bonus points almost like David Taylor does his first three years.

    I'm starting to think it won't be Delgado or Megdaludis who upsets him at the NCAA's, it could be anyone. He's just not the same Wrestler.

    I don't know if you can say which 174 pound upset was the biggest....Blanton is a stud. A 6 v 3 in this tournament is so close that in 10 matches it could easily be 5-5 either way.

    Storley was the guy who really surprised me as I thought he was similar to Howe was. He always wrestles close matches, but finds a way to win. But when the #8 seed is a guy like Yates, it's kinda hard to really be surprised when he beats anyone.

    I'd have bet on Storley, but I just can't be too shocked with any result at 174. One of those weights you could see a 7th and 8th seed in the finals.

    Agree 100%, don't know what's up but he's not looking good at all.
