Thread: Way too early thoughts about line ups for next year.

    Default Re: Way too early thoughts about line ups for next year.

    Wanted to start up again with some discussion about some other teams (sorry for the long delay).

    Any thoughts on Nebraska? They have some tough wrestlers returning, and it looks like they have some nice recruits coming in as well (#6 class for 2014), although a couple will most likely redshirt because of Sueflohn and Green.

    125 - Lambert, decent year last year
    133 - ?
    141 - Tuma, White (both incoming freshmen)
    149 - Sueflohn, should AA
    157 - Green, in the mix this year for the title?
    165 - ?
    174 - Kokesh, all the same characters back again except for Perry
    184 - Dudley, potential
    197 - ?
    HWT - Jensen, decent

    Howe is graduated at 174 as well, so that's two less (including Perry) characters for Kokesh to contend with, but he'll still have a tough road to gold with Brown, Storley, Evans and Wilps back in contention. Plus Chance Marstellar may be able to contend right out of the gate if he doesn't RS. This will be a very deep weight class once again.

    125) Lambert (RSo) AA contender
    133) McCrystal (So) or Montoya (So)/Morgan (RSo). McCrystal wants to go 141 but Abidin may be roadblock.
    141) Abidin (Jr) (I think he will be eligible as he's still in Lincoln)/McCrystal
    149) Sueflohn (Sr) title contender
    157) Green (Sr) title contender
    165) Wilson (RSr) possible AA, Wilbourn (RSr), Barnes (Rso)
    174) Kokesh (Rsr) title contender
    184) Dudley (RSo) AA contender, Studebaker (Rso)
    197) Johnson (RSr)
    Hvy) Jensen (RSo)
    "He beat nobodies..Thorn at 133 won't be great, R12 or worse imo...
    I just don't see it...David Thorn is not elite. I don't think he'll place"

    Ohio State is going to be hard to beat:

    125: Thomasello - 4 time champ coming off a redshirt
    133: Dijulius
    141: Logan Stieber - Going for 4th title
    149: Hunter Stieber - Potential Champ
    157: Josh Demas or Micah Jordan
    165: Bo Jordan - Potential Champ
    174: Martin
    184: Kenny Courts
    197: Kyle Snyder - Potential Champ
    HWT: Tavanello/Haines
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Only two returning AA's in that lineup.

    I think tOSU is one of the most interesting story lines. For the past 4 years they've mostly underperformed, and as Jammen noted they only have 2 returning AA's. Still--the blue chip potential on that team--Thomasello, B Jordan, Snyder plus returning solid AA threats Dijulius, Demas and throw in Courts, Martin andTavanello--there's a lot of potential, but as yet unproven. Very interesting team to watch!

    Cornell has produced quite a few good wrestlers in recent years. Any thoughts about what to expect from them this year?

    125: Garrett - possible champ
    133: Grey - possible AA?
    141: Cisneros? - top 10 recruit in 2012
    149: Galasso? - highly recruited in 2014
    157: Realbuto - finished 6th last year
    165: Palacio - quietly a very nice year last year (only 3 wrestlers who finished ahead of him last year are returning)
    174: Taylor? - 2013 recruit, Artigliere? - 2014 recruit
    184: Dean - possible champ
    197: Bennett - could pick up a few points at NCAA's
    HWT: Aiken-Phillips?
