Thanks for the tweets during the match AV. 

The comments from Jaggers are reassuring about Heinselman, but does anyone thing they're regretting burning the red shirt? 

174 continues to a bit baffling, but at this point I'd go with Smith.

I don't think they're regretting it at all at this point. Heinselman is their best option in the postseason, honestly, and if he's going to make a run he needs to get some matches on the board beyond the ones he's wrestled in open tournaments. The staff knew going in versus Foley that this was a possible outcome, but since Heinselman has beaten Foley before, from a confidence standpoint he knows he can hang with him.

Jaggers talked about the race between Smith and 'Shan, and said they're not making it easy on the staff to make a decision either way. Campbell wrestled better at Indiana in terms of scoring, but they really want to see him open up more on his feet. He's a hammer on top, but his attack rate still needs to be higher. For Smith, he has to wrestle all seven minutes of the match with the same intensity he's shown in his best moments this season.

I won't at all be surprised if Smith ultimately takes the job, but if Campbell every really cracks his potential, he could be something special.

The way tOSU is recruiting you wrestle your best wrestlers. If 125 is not where it needs to be in a couple years they will recruit over him. There is a chance he could red shirt next year if Decatur can cut any weight to 125 then take over at 133 after pletcher leaves.

Flo wrestling is one place but usually need a membership. a good free place where you can view individual weight classes is https://intermatwrestle.com/rankings/high_school/160

individual rankings can be a little deceiving for many reasons, but if you google pound for pound high school wrestling rankings flo might have a list that pops up you can see for no charge. One thing I dont like about wrestling when it comes to that stuff wrestling is controlled by one maybe 2 sites that have coverage on high school wrestling.

That's an impressive win alright, and a great primer before tangling with the rival in two weeks.

Appreciate the coverage, AV.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...
