Rather than overtaking every other thread to talk about this match let’s get it started. This is the week! It’s going to be fun and a great test for the young guys.

125 - Lee fall Terukina. I have no inside knowledge, but reading the tea leaves that Lee will go for this dual. 6-0 Iowa

133 - Teske dec Attasauov. I didn’t think Attasauov looked great in Humboldt and Redding obviously was terrible against Cal Baptist. If we can get the Redding that showed up in Florida, this is a winnable match, but I need to see it again. Definitely could go either way. 9-0 Iowa

141 - Swiderski maj Bennet. While I think Lee goes, I have no idea about Woods. I don’t think it would be smart for Woods to wrestle his first match of the year against Swiderski. Swiderski is getting better and better adjusted to the weight and his pressure is going to be high. I’d like to see Swiderski develop a consistent turn and maybe this could end up in a pin, but that will come. Even if Woods goes I’m taking Swiderski, why not. 9-4 Iowa

149 - Murin dec Johnson. This is going to be close. I think it’s a 1 td match and RT and gas tank will be the deciding factor. 12-4 Iowa

157 - Siebrecht dec Kraisser. Siebrecht is no world beater, but I’ve been impressed so far this year. I think there could be some wild exchanges in this one. I think the range of outcomes spans the whole spectrum here but Iowa is the favorite. 15-4 Iowa

165 - Carr dec Kennedy. I feel confident about this as Carr has looked great and is tested this year. Kennedy will bring it though. 15-7 Iowa.

174 - Broderson dec Brands. This is going to be a 1 TD battle. 3-2 type match. Brands looked like he’s not 100% in the dual against Penn. 15-10 Iowa

184 - Coleman dec Assad. I think Coleman is close to a major here, but not quite. 5-6 point win. 15-13 Iowa

197 - Bastida dec Warner. Simply better. Warner’s path to victory is to hold Bastida off and make it an escape and RT win. Think Bastida can get the 2-3 TDs he needs. 16-15 ISU.

Hvy - Cassioppi fall Schuyler. 21-16 Iowa.

This dual really comes down to who Iowa sends out at 125. If Lee goes, it will be a tough hill to climb. If not, ISU is right there..

It would be nice if ISU could steal one of 33 or 49, and the Bastida match is huge.

Lee will be listed. Not sure if he actually goes, but if you start at 125 then it forces Iowa’s hand to make the call instead of having the what if looming over the dual.
Agreed. It would be great to force the Spencer decision right away without having knowledge of how the rest of the dual is playing out. That said, could depend a lot on how our weight cuts go at 33, 41.

You have to wonder, if Brands gets choice where he’d like to start? 33 so that he can save Spencer unless absolutely necessary? I hope there is some reporting on how the starting weight is decided.

How is it decided? I thought it was if both agreed then it’s a go, if not it was picked out of a hat. Maybe that is high school.

Swiderski wins vs whoever they put out there.
Agreed, I just think he is more likely to go than Lee. I truly think if Lee is going Brands has fear deep in his bones and wakes up every night to nightmares of Dresser being the reason he gets fired.

I can see it now, all the sorry excuses and things the sqwaks are going to be saying. “Fire Brands” “When can Spencer take over?” “Who is our next head coach?” “How much will it take to get Cael?” “Fire M*, he can’t recruit” “they are lucky we didn’t have our full line up” just some of the things that will be said after cyclones beat their ass. I just hope Spencer doesn’t lose his career to another injury by returning too soon. He could be an Olympic champion one day.
