    Virginia Tech Preview and Predictions

    #15 Virginia Tech comes to town on Friday for a dual. Here are my thoughts.

    First off, the Virginia Tech AD's website for wrestling is so much better than ours. Looking up records, results, etc. was super easy and everything I wanted was there. I wish Cyclones.com would put up half of this stuff, or at least update more than once a year. If you click on "Statistics" on Cyclones.com you still get the notes for our 2/13/11 meet against Missouri. I have to get all of our stats from the NWCA site, which isn't always completely accurate.

    125: #12 Ryak Finch (9-4) vs. Erik Spjut (19-8)
    133: Ben Cash (4-4) vs. #3 Devin Carter (21-1)
    141: Luke Goettl (7-7) vs. #11 Zach Neibert (13-4)
    149: Luke Swalla (1-10) vs. Nick Murray (17-9) or Chris Mears (7-6)
    157: Mike Moreno (1-7) vs. Cameron Hurd (9-7) or Matt Stephens (3-4)
    165: #5 Andrew Sorenson (18-1) vs. #7 Pete Yates (16-3)
    174: Mikey England (12-8) vs. Chris Moon (11-8)
    184: #11 Boaz Beard (6-2) vs. John Dickson (12-10)
    197: Cole Shafer (7-10) vs. Nick Vetterlein (19-6)
    HWT: #18 Matt Gibson (13-6) vs. Chris Penny (6-4)

    Common opponents:
    Code:
    125:
    Matt McDonough (Iowa) dec. Eric Spjut 5-11 / Matt McDonough dec. Ryak Finch 0-6
    Eric Spjut dec. Aarhus Cruse (UNI) 4-1 / Ryak Finch fall Aarhus Cruse 1:41
    
    133:
    No common opponents
    
    141
    Zach Neibert dec. Luke Goettl 9-8
    
    149:
    No common opponents
    
    157:
    Matt Stephens MD James Rafferty (Army) 14-5 / James Rafferty MD Mike Moreno 4-15
    
    165:
    Peter Yates dec. Patrick Graham (Oklahoma) 4-2 / Andrew Sorenson dec Patrick Graham (twice) 7-6 and MD 11-1
    
    174:
    Tanner Weatherman (ISU) dec. Chris Moon 1-6 / Tanner Weatherman dec Mikey England 7-9
    Jimmy Sheptock (Maryland) dec. Chris Moon 2-10 / Jimmy Sheptock dec. Mikey England 3-10
    
    184:
    Vinnie Wagner (Iowa) dec. John Dickson 2-6 / Boaz Beard dec. Vinnie Wagner 10-9
    
    197:
    Cole Shafer dec. Nick Vetterlein 8-2
    Joe Budi (Old Dominion) dec. Nick Vetterlein 6-8 / Joe Budi MD Cole Shafer 0-11
    
    HWT: 
    James Ernest (Edinboro) dec. Chris Penny 2-3 / James Ernest fall Matt Gibson 2:52
    The key matches for this meet are 141 and 165. At 165 Sorenson is once again facing another quality wrestler. It seems like almost every meet he is facing a guy who has a legit chance to AA in March. At 141 Goettl gets a chance to avenge a close loss from Midlands and show us how much he has improved since the start of the season. If Goettl wins this one he should be ranked in the top 15 next time rankings come out. If England gets a good win I'd expect to see him ranked next time as well (Spangler is currently #7 at 174). I consider both 141 and 149 to be tossups and wouldn't be surprised if we won either of them. I'm also not confident about Shafer so a loss by him wouldn't be shocking at all.

    I think we win this one, but it will be close and one bad match could cost us the meet.

    Here's my predictions:

    125: Finch dec. Spjut 3-0
    133: Carter fall Cash 3-6
    141: Neibert dec. Goettl 3-9
    149: Murray dec. Swalla 3-12
    157: Hurd MD Moreno 3-16
    165: Sorenson dec. Yates 6-16
    174: England dec. Moon 9-16
    184: Beard MD Dickson 13-16
    197: Cole Shafer dec. Vetterlein 16-16
    HWT: Gibson dec. Chris Penny 19-16

    Re: Virginia Tech Preview and Predictions

    Very good predictions, I see a ton of possible predictions. I think Hallman and swalla are key matches also. They need to hold to nothing worse than a decision loss to really help the team. Sometimes the match is won by the kid who lost but only gave up 3 points and not 6.

    Re: Virginia Tech Preview and Predictions

    Good write up with all the comparisons. Cash will be wrestle in place of Hallman.

    I hope For Bonus from Finch.
    This dual is also important because Virginia Tech is in our region for National Duals. We need the higher seed! Same as the UNI Dual will be important.

    Re: Virginia Tech Preview and Predictions

    OSKALOOSA, Iowa – Redshirt sophomore Ben Cash dominated the competition at the William Penn Open on Saturday. Cash won by major decision in all four matches of the tournament en route to a first-place finish.
    In the 133-pound bracket, Cash started off with a 12-2 major decision over Javier Carbajal of Waubonsee CC. Cash then went on to post a 12-4 major decision over Logan Welch of Missouri Valley. In the semis, Cash defeated Ellsworth CC’s James Kent by 15-5. Even in the finals Cash continued his commanding run with a 13-5 win over Maryville’s Brandon Oshiro for the crown.
    Cash’s performance at William Penn secured him a spot in the Friday’s lineup when the Cyclones play host to Virginia Tech at 7 p.m. (CST) in Hilton Coliseum.

    Re: Virginia Tech Preview and Predictions

    Updated the OP to include Cash. I am surprised by this. Hallmann was doing as well as we could hope for and Cash's 4-0 record from Saturday was against 4 guys with losing records at D-III schools and Community Colleges. I could see that earning him a wrestle-off, but not enough to walk in to the starting lineup. Maybe Jackson thinks he is less likely to get pinned.

    Vetterein got majored by Reader last year at 174, so he jumped 2 big weights. Maybe he is in a similiar position as Shafer and should be a 184 pounder.

    The ISU release lists Cozart as our guy at 149. That's surprising to say the least. I wasn't even sure if he'd even still be on the team for second semester.

    Re: Virginia Tech Preview and Predictions

    That's great, hopefully they show up. You should post a thread with that title so students that don't open wrestling threads will see it and maybe come.

    Re: Virginia Tech Preview and Predictions

    The students would get an e-mail from the AD about that I'm guessing.

    Updating on IPTV, they are showing it on tape delay at 8:30. But Clone Zone will be live.

    Does IPTV stream video? I live in Colorado, but it would be great if I could get an online stream of this. I can't find anything on their website that indicates so.

    You could watch the Close Zone feed, but I am not sure if IPTV streams stuff.
