The wrestling team is in a great position to earn Gene Smith a bunch of money next year. Could be looking at 2-4 individual national champs as well as a team title. Can't wait!
Great job Buckeyes! I love seeing Ohio State win in anything.
Oh, and it actually might be $54,000.00 for Mean Gene. Two individual titles plus a team title.
Buckeyes should be the favorite for the national title next year. Could have 4 wrestlers in the finals, and everyone in the lineup has a legitimate shot to be an All-American.
I'm excited to see Tomasello, Demas and Jordan wrestle in the NE Regionals this weekend. Especially glad to see Demas back on the mat after his year off.
Also, thanks for the shout out to my alma mater, the mighty Claymont Mustangs, in the article!!!!!
Brackets are up on www.trackwrestling.com. You can follow the action there, on twitter with the @wrestlingbucks account, or if you subscribe to the Big Ten Digital Network they will have coverage. The finals are live on BTN on Sunday at 2:00 P.M.
Given that it is likely that Cory Clark will wrestle for Iowa, that will reduce the number of automatic qualifiers to 6. The auto qualifier spots are given to the wrestler, and, in Iowa's situation, Thomas Gilman was the one who earned the spot. Puts Roberts in a tough position, as it likely knocks one other quality wrestler into the at large pool.
Mike Evans is a first rounder. Won't be there at 26, let alone round 3 or 4.
Ohio State 49
50-14...Woody would be proud!
27-16 Ohio State.
70-20, Bucks gone wild!
Hmmmm...this week I think the offense clicks and we see the second 50+ point effort.
The D gives up a couple long passes, but plays well overall.
