    125 - Is Finch ready to wrestle?
    133 - Would like to see Terukina back out there I believe he gives us the best chance to win or at least avoid bonus points
    141 - If he wrestles like he did against Minnesota it could be a needed win
    149 - Waiting to if Cozart can wrestle on a D1 level? Don't like our chances
    157 - Moreno has been very disappointing so far and he doesn't give us much to cheer about
    165 - Sorenson is obviously the star of this young team - should win and hopefully get bonus points here
    174 - Spangler has also wrestled great lately. If he could just put all 3 periods together of strong wrestling I think he could keep his winning ways alive
    184 - Hopefully Beard is in line-up. Will be tough match but should be able to win
    197 - Shafer too small, we lose
    285 - Gibson needs to show some excitement and get a win

    Hope we win but....

    This is my opinion on how we get it done.

    125-#3 Alan Waters (UM) dec Ryak Finch (#12) 3-0 M
    133-#8 Nathan McCormick (UM) mdec Hallman or Terukina 7-0 M
    141-Brandon Wiest (UM) dec by Luke Goettl 7-3 M
    149-#18 Kyle Bradley (UM) dec Joe Cozart 10-3 M
    157-#22 Drake Houdashelt (UM) dec by Mike Moreno 10-6 M
    165-#11 Zach Toal (UM) dec by #4 Andrew Sorenson 10-9 M
    174-#3Dorian Henderson (UM) dec #11 Chris Spangler 13-9 M
    184-#18 Mike Larson (UM) dec by #11 Boaz Beard 13-12 M
    197-#19 Brent Haynes (UM)dec Cole Shafer 16-12 M
    285-Devon Mellon (UM) fall Matt Gibson 16-18 ISU

    I think Spangler could pull the upset and would like to see what Joe Cozart could do if he opens up.

    So Beard is going to go? That is good news. I think Goettl could be the burst we need at the lower weights.

    I am sure you know, but what is the deal with Trent Weatherman? If you can't post can you send me a PM? He would have given us wins in quite a few meets this year, and we need all the points we can get.

    I have not heard if Beard or Finch are going to wrestle. I think Beard has been dealing with a thigh bruise and Finch I hope whatever happen at Minnesota is minor. I hope some of the thought process is, that KJ would rather have them healthy for Missouri and Midlands than chance further injury against Minnesota (which I think was a longshot to win if we were healthy, Especially for those 2 against Sanders and Steinhaus) Trent, I hear is having neck problems and probably done for the year.

    Gosh out team is decimated by injuries. Do you think Moreno is near 100%? I like his chances when he is healthy, but he just hasn't been this year.
