    Finch and Molina will need to be ready to go against Eastern Michigan. I think those are probably the 2 best matches in that dual. I don't know much about Eastern Michigan either.

    Really all 10 guys need to be ready. Great opportunity for our lightweight guys to get some wins over some other guys that are on the fence for NCAAs.

    Any of you guys interested in writing fan blogs about wresting for the site? I think it would be a nice addition. PM me if you're interested. You do a nice job.

    Re: ***Mighigan State/Eastern Michigan Preview/Prediction/Results 2/15&2/17***

    Logan Molina has the most riding on this weekend. The new coaches poll and RPI have been released and he is 31st in RPI and Unranked in the coaches poll. However, the guy from Eastern Michigan is 30th in RPI and 29th in the coaches poll while the guy from Michigan State is unranked in RPI and 28th in the coaches poll.

    Why does this matter? Because right now Logan is just outside of securing an NCAA qualifying spot for the Big XIIs. And he is facing two other guys in similar positions. In basketball terms all three of them are in the "first four out". If Logan goes 2-0 this weekend he has a decent shot at bumping himself up into being one of the "last four in" instead.

    Re: ***Mighigan State/Eastern Michigan Preview/Prediction/Results 2/15&2/17***

    Beard also has a lot riding on this weekend. At this point he cannot autoqualify for NCAAs due to not having enough matches and not having a .700 record in the matches he does have. However, he owns three wins over guys who will be autoqualifiers (Stoll from NDSU, Bethea from Penn, and Chionuma from OSU). Rizqallah from Michigan State is also an autoqualifier. So if he gets a fourth win over an autoqualifier Beard will greatly improve his shot at an getting an at-large spot if he takes second at Big XIIs (the Big XII will likely only get one spot at 184, from Chionuma).

    Gibson would also greatly improve his stock with a win tonight. Like Beard, he doesn't have enough matches to be included in RPI and doesn't have a .700 record. However, unlike Beard he doesn't have any wins over guys who are sure NCAA qualifiers (though he does have multiple wins over guys who are borderline qualifiers). But he also only has one "bad" loss, in his first match of the year. So a win over McClure would give him much better standing for an at-large spot if he takes second at Big XIIs (the Big XII will likely only get one spot at HWT, from Gelogaev)

    | 197 | Kyven Gadson      | 18-2  | 7/7/7     | vs. | Nick McDiarmid   | 17-9     | NR/NR/NR |
    | HWT | Matt Gibson       | 13-6  | NR/NR/19  | vs. | Mike McClure     | 27-3     | 7/6/10   |
    +-----+-------------------+-------+-----------+-----+------------------+----------+----------+
    125:
    McDonough from Iowa beat both Finch and Lyon. Neither have been setting the world on fire but Finch should be able to take care of business here. ISU favored by a decent amount.

    133:
    Fifeld is not very good. Meeks has struggled but Fifeld shouldn't pose much of a problem. ISU favored.

    141:
    Trimble is not very good and Goettl can't afford any screw ups if he wants to have a chance to qualify for NCAAs. ISU heavy favorite

    149:
    Osterman is a decent wrestler but Max has been showing a lot of improvement lately. Osterman has wins over guys that Mayfield has lost to. I expect this to be one of the closest matches of the dual and would love to see Max get an upset. Michigan State is favored.

    157:
    Another fairly even match. Watts is ranked slightly ahead of Logan and will be fighting hard to keep himself in the running for an NCAA qualifying spot. Logan must go 2-0 this weekend to have a chance at getting a spot of his own. I expect this to be a very hard fought match, possibly the best match of the night. Michigan State is slightly favored.

    165:
    Proctor is not a very good wrestler. I would like to see a major decision or better from Moreno here. ISU is heavily favored.

    174:
    If Weatherman goes 2-0 this weekend he secures himself a spot in Des Moines. I expect him to come out and dominate against an average opponent in Wohlfert. ISU is favored.

    184:
    This is the marquee matchup of the night. Beard and Rizqallah are both high quality wrestlers and will be looking to make a statement for rankings. Beard is ranked slightly higher but Rizqallah owns a win over Ethan Lofthouse, who beat Beard 3-10 in December. Beard is very capable of getting a win here but I have to give the edge to Rizqallah. Michigan State is slightly favored.

    197:
    McDiarmid has a pretty decent record, but Gadson should run him over like a freight train. Major decision or better. ISU is heavily favored.favored.

    HWT:
    McClure is Michigan State's best wrestler. Gibson desperately needs a win to give himself a shot at an at large bid to Des Moines. Michigan State is favored but I would love to see an upset by Gibson.

    Overall I'm looking for ISU to post a strong win. 25-9 give or take one match.

    Michigan State's preview indicates they'll be sending out Luke Jones (20-12) against Gadson rather than McDiarmid. That doesn't change anything as far as what I expect out of the match.

    Rizqallah didn't come out for introductions. That's actually good for Beard. Winning that one wouldn't have helped him much and losing would have hurt.
