JDJ beat Goodwin 14-5 and will have Thorn in the next round. 

Stieber won by pin and will have Collica from Oklahoma State (went to Solon for high school). 

Paddock lost to Kindig of Ok State and will face Christian Barber of UNC in the consis.

You guys know why the younger Stieber took a redshirt this year?

Hunter took a redshirt to get bigger and stronger. This gave Ian Paddock a better chance to wrestle in his redshirt senior year. Tom Ryan has a good history of utilizing his talent, and this is another example. With Hunter, Bo Jordan, and Nathan Tomasello taking redshirts this year, the Buckeyes should be loaded in the 2014-15 season.

BTW who would have thought that Tavanello would have the thirst most team points after the first two sessions? (Heflin 6, Stieber 5.5, Tavanello 5). He has two pins in the consolation bracket so far. Maybe the loss to Walz finally lit a fire.

Steiber is a flat out beast.

Just beat Rutherford again (7-3) in the semis but his counter of what should have been 2 from Rutherford is the best sequence I've seen this year.
