Can someone with some wrestling insight give us a quick synopsis or wrestling for dummies if you will.  Also what weight does Steibler wrestle at?

HS

Stieber is 141.  Last match of the night due to its high-profile.

I hate the offseason.

HS
puff daddy's picture

watch and learn. And keep watching. Big 10 net. covers it during the season.

knucklehead

HS
Knarcisi's picture

2 for takedown, 2 for reversal, 1 for escape, back points for near fall, 1 point for 1+ min of riding time. 

HS
SilverState's picture

A takedown is when they get around their opponent, usually by shooting on the legs, and is 2 points. If the opponent escapes, that's 1 point. If they can tilt their opponent where their back is angled towards the mat, they get points according to how long they can keep them tilted. If they get their opponents back on the mat and can keep it there, that's a pin or fall. If it's a tie score at the end of three periods, the guy who rode the other one longer wins, meaning when they start from the down position the guy on top gets riding time.

IamJoeHall's picture

The last few years, in order to increase the viewership and excitement of wrestling they set the weights up to end with the highest profile match last.  Last year was the Magic Man David Taylor, and the year before with Taylor and Dake.  Kind of a cool idea too.  This tournament would be ridiculously out of touch for anyone had Hunter Stieber (149 lbs) and Nick Tavanello (285) been healthy.  Stieber will reportedly (rumor as of now) need two tommy john surgeries on his elbows, and showed balls bigger than any human even trying to go.  Here's the bad news for the rest of the country...of the kids who scored points at the national tournament this year for OSU....only Logie Bear is gone.  As long as the other 9 guys can evolve in the offseason even just a little bit, there could be a historic battle with PSU for a title next year.

HS

supposedly someone in the Stieber family, I won't name does not want Hunter to get this done. This is what the wrestling community up here is saying. Why this someone would feel iffy about the procedures I don't know.

They red shirted a lot of their best guys this year.  Zain Retherford (last man to beat Logie Bear) Nico megaludis (3x All american) and stud frosh Nick Nevills, Bo Nickal, Jason Nolf, they will certainly be a team to be reckoned with next year.  Hell they're in or near the top 5 with two all americans NOT in their lineup. 

"Live life with no regrets, that's my motto.....well....that and 'Everybody Wang Chung Tonight'"

HS

Why would they red shirt the last guy that beat Logan?

Thanks for the answer BTW

HS
IamJoeHall's picture

Cael Sanderson (159-0 as a wrestler in college) is an outstanding coach.  He conceded that his best bet to get back to their title streak (won the last four before this year) was to red shirt those guys, and his freshmen, and stock up for a new run starting in 15-16.  Plus at 125 he still got an all american performance from a guy who would have been a back up in Jordan Conaway.  Retherford is a young guy, still has three years left, so why not redshirt him and he can be a major cog in the new dynasty they're trying to start.  Not a lot different from Tom Ryan redshirting Hunter Stieber last year when he could have easily have been a finalist and/or won 149.

HS
Knarcisi's picture

I can't. Not a wrestling guy. Just that you can't do it. 

HS
GreatLakesBeer's picture

On the stall he was just holding the feet and not trying to advance his position to hips. On the locked hands I don't know I did that quite a bit in high school. That was over 10 years ago.

If you will it dude, it is no dream

HS
SilverState's picture

Yeah, you can't lock your hands when you're the top man. Was always a rule when I wrestled, but it's kind of like Holding with offensive lineman and refs don't always see it.

"Year for what?"

HS
Knarcisi's picture

It's funny because he didn't even need to do it to hold him for 3 sec. 

HS
EBoz10's picture

The wrestler on top can't lock or clasp or even touch his hands together while riding his opponent. As far the stall call that's a new rule that forces the top wrestler to work up if he is riding the legs

HS
GreatLakesBeer's picture

Ok so if your both standing and you got the guys back are you able to lock hands? I always went Palm to Palm for back trip.

If you will it dude, it is no dream

HS

when standing you can...when you return to the mat you must unlock...immediately.

What is the record for a wrestler for amount of pounds lost in a day? I bet it's something crazy.

I have to believe he would have been competing for championships the way he dominated in HS.  Something like 12 straight pins to finish out his senior year with a state championship.

Baldwins must be from PA. He knows a lot about PA wrestling and I saw him and the Wilson Phillips girl he was with at the Buckeye / PSU game in Happy Valley in the late 90s.

ESPN cursed Snyder, that story on Gadson's dad set everything off.  I don't have a problem with him calling it the Gadson, it's not like he was a prick about it, and yes get the man some damn ICE CREAM.  Kyle Snyder is going to hurt people next year, losing like that will piss him off ....

We had a guy on our HS team that all he did was take down and escape over and over again - just toying with his opponent. Then in the third period he would pin them.

My roommate and I decided to check out the team this year. We had no idea what was going on, at first, but I had heard about Stieber and the team was wrestling number one Iowa. Next thing you know, we are back to watch them duel with Penn State. Then we got tickets to watch the Big Ten title matches. And now we watched as many Buckeye matches at the NCAA championships (including pulling up WatchESPN while at Nationwide for basketball) and all 3 hours of the title matches. 

WE ARE HOOKED. What an accomplishment for this team! Can't wait to watch them next year!

An added bit of minutiae - Logan was a 3x Middle School state champ, 4x high school state champ, 4x Big Ten champ, and 4x NCAA champ - I don't know if Sanderson, Smith, or Dake can claim similar titles.

Edit - Sanderson also won 4 high school titles while Smith won 3 and Dake won 2.
