    How is Ohio State #3?

    Iowa and ISU are still pretty much the class of wrestling based upon Intermat's rankings, although Minnesota and OSU would give either us run in a dual meet.

    ISU and Ok St. ave 9 wrestlers ranked in the top twenty, with MN and Iowa with eight. ISU and Iowa have 8 each in the top 10 in their weight classes.

    Meanwhile OSU has just 5 ranked wrestlers, 4 in the tiop 10. Giving points basd on rankings (20, 19, 18, ...etc), the rankings this week would go:

    Iowa - 132
    ISU - 130
    OkSU - 113
    Mn - 92
    OhSU - 67

    These are the only ones I looked at but there are probably several other teams that would score higher than Ohio State.

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    good analysis, I wonder (and I haven't looked) if their (OhSU) strength of schedule is helping them out?

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    OSU's last 2 showings at Nationals is why they're #3.

    This would be the only logical explanation. But it's still not very logical. I just can't see them making much noise at Nationals.

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    I thought the same thing about OSU at #3, but Oh well. I haven't seen Okie St wrestle, but they have a bunch on new wrestlers, it will be interesting to see how they vs Iowa coming up.

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    Hey, don't complain. This weekend ISU has tOSU and Maryland on their side of the bracket and Iowa has Minnesota and Central Michigan. On paper, we seem to have the easier draw.

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    When you go weight-by-weight and look at the rankings, we actually split even with Iowa, Minnesota, and OkSt. We win 6-3 over OhSU, with one weight (157) where neither has a ranked wrestler. Of course, this does not factor in the likelihood of bonus points.

    The split with UI and UM is pretty much what happened. While we split with two of the other three, without double-checking, I think Iowa actually has an advatange on all three in the comparison.

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    Where are the brackets? I thought Cornell was returning a tough team from last year's 3rd place finish. Is that not true?

    They are tough, but they will be without returning 125lb finalist Troy Nickerson.

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    Cornell is a much more tallented team. One I am kind of worried about matching up with especially if we are not a full strength.

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    OSU has the spare money to pour into wrestling and they are doing it. They are the perfect example of "buying" a winning program.

    Re: How is Ohio State #3?

    Ohio State has three potential finalists. The current tournament point system is weighted towards higher placing instead of depth, so the point gap between first and third is much more significant than fifth and seventh. Ohio State should finish top 5 for sure.
