I was waiting for Robert Smith's name to pop up.
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.
Martin lost at 174 to Brennan of Rider. He'll face Scheffell of West Virginia in the consis.
The first round of wrestlebacks (or consolations) will take place tonight at 7 PM ET.
Courts won 8-4 and will wrestle Steinhaus of Minnesota in the 2nd round.
Heflin won by injury default and will face Stanford's Dan Scherer next.
Tav lost in the pigtail to Walz of VT.
Roberts lost to Peters 8-4 and will likely wrestle White of Binghamton.
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.
If Hoyer goes out with an injury this year, I'm predicting an offense exclusively featuring the Wildcat. They'll call it the Dawg Pound (patent pending) and it'll revolutionize the NFL. You heard it here first.
Heflin continued his tear through the Big Ten. He looks like a man on a mission.
I'm glad Scarlet and others found the link for you.
I've been told that while there is a formula for allotted qualifiers per conference, the seeding process is not announced at all and there is no discussion allowed in regards to why guys are seeded where.
Any time I see a reference to college football based on the logic of EA's NCAA Football series, I have to appreciate it. I liked to always avoid the promise of "Will not redshirt 1st year on campus" because I knew I wouldn't follow through with it.
The Stephen King link in the WMD's is sure to get me re-reading all of his books, so thanks for something to do between now and August.
As far as 80's games, I was partial to Tecmo Super Bowl (was that in the 80's?). It was cheating to be the Raiders and run the ball with Bo. My dad couldn't really explain to tiny me why Bernie Kosar was known as QB #19 or Browns QB or something.
Have used this for a while. Spent way too much time playing Dragon Warrior. Couldn't beat it as a kid. Our NES died in college before we could beat it. Vengeance was mine.
Here's my preview of the Big Ten tournament, coming up this weekend. It's in 2 parts and I've yet to scribe part 2 (but probably tonight)
Scarlet_lutefisk nailed it. Penn State, Iowa, and Minnesota will have the top 3 locked down at the Big Ten and NCAA tournaments.
The Buckeyes could conceivably have champs at 141 and 197 this weekend and should have several placers.
The Big 3 schools are graduating some studs are the Buckeyes are loaded next year. I'll worry about next year after the NCAA tournament, though. This year's team has some real talent and shouldn't be slept on. A 5th place finish at Big Tens is a possibility if guys like JDJ and Courts work their magic.
With that said, thanks for the heads up.
I'd like to see the Browns get Watkins with the 1st pick and then CJ Mosley with the 2nd 1st round pick. Releasing D'Qwell leaves a big hole in the middle of the defense. Hyde in round 2 if he's around? Maybe Darqueze Dennard with the late pick in round 1.
YES! If the pain in my knees and back each morning doesn't make me feel old, this one does the trick.
What makes me feel better is that I don't listen to the music of today and say "it's too loud" because I still have Pantera in heavy rotation.
Here's my latest recap of yesterday's match with VT
