Quote from: Barou on April 29, 2024, 02:56:37 PMIs it possible that Bono could break Davis' record with the least amount of points scored in the Big Ten Tournament, 9 points in 2012?
Amazing that team scored 9 points.  The over/under was probably 1.5!

Tobin came in 9-18 and won a consolation match in OT.

Ben Jordan (28-12)lost first round and came back for 7th to keep the AA streak going! Beat Mike Evans (#5) of Iowa first round of consolations 3-2.  Beat Andrew Sorensen (#3) Iowa State 6-2 in the blood round!


Nice! What are those 2 doing now? Those were dark days for sure!

So basically your two best wrestlers are at the same weight in Amos and Johnson
Of Course, this is only my opinion and no one elses!

Quote from: rjchev141 on April 05, 2024, 04:51:19 PMRough guess of best scenario:
125 - Rivera, Spurley
133 - Fugitt, Exford, Bobzien, Coy, Kruse
141 - Lettini
149 - Zargo, George, Sheen
157 - Mechler, Goebel, Nilo
165 - Model, Anderson
174 - Condon, Kelly, Mitrovich
184 - Ingham
197 - Russo, Malin, Talshahar
285 - Amos, Johnson, Rosenfeld, Christensen, Empey, Schmidtke

Questions to Ponder:
 
Does Rivera go 125 and Fugitt go 133. leaving Bobzien and Coy to battle Lettini at 141? As we know, Bobzien and Coy did not wrestle at all last year..

What will happen at 157? Seems like Mechler had trouble generating offense but started to get better at the end of the season - Goebel, George and Nilo could all push for the spot.

Does Zargo stay at 149 or cut to 141?  What weight does Julian George go? 149 or 157?  He just wrestled at 70kg (154 lbs) and will probably try out at a weight Zargo is not at.

What weight does Cale Anderson go? 165 or 174? Looked solid at 174 - Could be pretty good at 165 if he can get down there...

What weight does Luke Condon go? 174 or 184? If he goes 184 we would not have to start a freshman (Ingham). Condon just got done wrestling at 86 kg (189.2 lbs). Wrestled at 174, 184 and 197 last season.

Will Russo takeover at 197? Hopefully he is healthy.

What happens at 285? Will Braxton be ready to wrestle? Will Johnson wrestle after football season? Rosenfeld improved as the season went along last year - hopefully he continues to improve...

Will any freshman or backups surprise next season?

Do we get any transfers from the portal? Quite a few options there. key backups, past AA's

Nice recap Kirk. Only thing you missed is if Cale goes 174, who is going 165, and that can also be asked at 174 & 184 with Condon/Cale combo's.

Transfer Portal would be a nice answer there!

My lineup would have Anderson 165, Condon 174, Russo 184.

I think George will be the starter at 149 if Joey RS.

I thought fickle said Johnson will not be wrestling in a recent interview. Johnson is a not even close to 285 right now.

I give it a 75% chance Dillan never sets foot on a UW wrestling mat.
He originally was a Northwestern commit. so you think he is changing his mind again? LOL
What are your odds that Bono is head coach at UW in 2027?

bigoil

He left because the coach was fired and committed to the Badgers 2 days later.

Until there is evidence that Russo can make 184, this just looks like wishful thinking.  He's listed at 197 on the Badger website and he wrestled well over 200 in high school. 

But if wishful thinking is ok, then drop George to 41 and Bobzien to 33.  Maybe Amos to 197 and Endene to 84. Since Russo apparently can lose a lot of weight, I'll drop him to 65.
