    Any wrestling updates/predictions out there?

    I'm hoping all the stars are lined up next weekend. A national championship will make up for not getting the outright Big12 title. Got to believe!

    I'm predicting runner up. I think Iowa is just too strong this year for us to try and out score them.

    Yes they are next weekend. On CloneChronicles, I will write a preview when the seedings are announced, FWIW.

    Re: Any wrestling updates/predictions out there?

    This is an outstanding opportunity to grab a national championship, with all 10 wrestlers participating. I hope Cael can motivate the guys to grab this thing.

    Re: Any wrestling updates/predictions out there?

    I am predicting a 2nd place finish and hoping for a 1st. To get the NC we are going to have to wrestle with a fire that I am yet to see from many of these wrestlers in their career. We have the ability to win the NC but that is a completely different thing than having the heart to win it. I hope we do and I am not trying to bash the team but they are yet to prove that they have what it takes when the pressure is on.

    Re: Any wrestling updates/predictions out there?

    We dont score bonus points that is killer Metcalf will score as much as our top 2 guys that sucks!

    If Iowa get there kids to wrestle close to their seeds we cant win because of bonus points.




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: Any wrestling updates/predictions out there?

    I wish everyone would stop drooling over Iowa.

    Are they good? YES

    Are they unstopable? NO

    Here is how ISU wins a National Championship:
    a) Varner and Big Z must win it all. It will be a tough Tournament, but both of these guys should walk away with Titles. ISU needs both of these guys to win it all and they should.

    b) ISU needs these guys to make some real noise: Clark, Fanthorpe, Gallick, Sanderson or Reader - I believe these (5) wrestlers will be the key. All (5) are more than capable of beating their Hawkeye counterpart and advancing deep into the tournament. At least (1) needs to make the Finals and (4) of these guys need to be All-Americans.

    c) The remaining weights must get some points. Mueller, Burk, and Ward must get some points. Each wrestler has shown great potential and could get HOT and make it a long ways.

    GO CYCLONES!!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone will disappoint. They always do.

    It's tough to stay optimistic.

    Re: Any wrestling updates/predictions out there?

    The problem with Z is that he goes into overtime so much . . . at some point he's going to come out on the short end of the stick. Hopefully not next weekend though!

    I think we get hot and win it all or do not perform well and slip to 3.
