I think he was referring to someone's earlier comment that they thought Amos would AA at 285 right out of the box.

Hilger has the experience and knows what it takes. I would be surprised to see Amos up a weight class and have success in our conference. I hope that they both do, they are my picks! Even though Hwy weight is really deep.
In what world do you think Amos is "up a weight class". He wrestled 97kg at worlds and won gold and bronze. He also wrestled 97kg at senior world team trials and took 3rd in Greco. If you need help converting that is 213lbs.
I would like to reach through the screen and slap the next person who starts a thread about "global warming." Wraslfan
"Obama thinks we should all be on welfare."  BigG
"MN will eventually go the way of Greece." Wraslfan

Weights were added to the badger's roster page!  I'm guessing depth looks something like this?
125 – Barnett/Rotondo
133 - Burwick
141 – Zargo/Dentino/Bavery/Severin
149 – Gomez/Medora/Carroll
157 – Model/Scharenbrock/Meicher/Anderson/Anderson/Hughes
165 – Hamiti/Otto/Model
174 – McNally/Dow/Lantz/Calhoun
184 – Weiler/Sanders
197 – Amos/Empey
285 – Hillger/Christensen/Salemme/Schmidtke

The plot thickens  ;)  I asked Bono on Twitter if the WrestleStat lineup was accurate for next week's Jump Around.  Hopefully he can give us some direction on the lighter weights but I would think the UW roster page should be more accurate.  We are 21 days out from the first dual meet so I don't see why he wouldn't share who was expected to start.

It makes sense to me if Barnett would redshirt.  I wonder how much thought that has been given?

125 is going to be so tough and very deep, 3 of top 5 sat out last year, Glory, Vito and Suriano, all 3 are contenders even with Spencer Lee there.

That'll be a weight to watch this season. I'd still pick Lee to win it; but what a hornet's nest. I wasn't even aware that Lee was a RS senior. Holy crap.
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

I would also like to see Barnett redshirt.

DarkKnight

He'll do what's best for him, he may not do what you would like.

The season will be fun. over-analyzing isn't fun. Keep on.

GO Badgers.

I didn't say I'd like to see him redshirt.  As a fan, I want to see him compete.  I'm just speculating that it is being considered by those making that decision.  If it is going to happen in Barnett's career, the time is now.  From Barnett's perspective, it makes sense to me.  From Rotondo's perspective, that has a huge impact on his end to his career.  From the coaches' perspective, you potentially get 4 more high quality seasons at 125 versus 3.  The only reason I see to wrestle Barnett is if he is clearly ahead of Rotondo and the goal is to put the best team on the mat period.

Over-analyzing can be fun.

The coaching staff has been here for awhile and we have yet to put our best team on the mat, for various reasons (COVID, etc).  At some point, you have to.  I want the best guys at all the weights going...except Hamiti if he is not ready to be a top 10ish wrestler.

I hope the Jump Around on Monday addresses the projected starters.  WrestleStat updated starters:

125 – Barnett
133 - Burwick
141 – Dentino
149 – Gomez
157 – Model
165 – Otto
174 – McNally
184 – Weiler
197 – Amos
285 – Hillger

Harris, with that lineup how do you think the Badgers fair in the Big Ten? I see some great strengths but also some glaring holes that need work on
