Nice write up Andy - on paper it really appears the Buckeyes have the advantage but their crowd will play a factor as well. 

Looking forward to another wolverine BEAT DOWN

Sounds like Ryan has them on track following the loss. Hopefully tonight proves that to be true. 

The Wolverines have pulled out all the stops to boost attendance for Sunday's showdown, moving the meet to the 13,000-seat Crisler Center.

Take notes PSU/Cael.

The school hopes to break its dual-meet attendance record, currently 5,200, set in 1967.

Trying to stay relevant - it's been tough for many years. The TTUN fans will remind us of how great they were back in the 60's just like their football fans from days, years, decades gone by.

They just need a couple more decades to get their guys in there, then it will all turn around.

Set a new NCAA record for wrestling indoors last night against Iowa. 15,998 or something.

Here's hoping the WrestleBucks continue the Wolverine beatdowns that we've handed out lately. I'm predicting a few of our guys get back on track with a couple major decisions and a couple more tech falls. Go Bucks!

Get dumped, Michigan.

tOSU has everything to lose and almost nothing to gain, as they are favored in 9 of 10 bouts. At least two of those bouts, 133 and 157 will be tough wins for the higher ranked Buckeyes. Pletcher earned a hard fought 7-5 win over Micic, ranked #2 at the time, at 133 in the Cliff Keen. And Micah lost a 10-3 battle to Pantaleo, ranked #12 at the time, at 157 at the Cliff Keen. #14 ranked Campbell, the only lesser ranked Buckeye, has another tough opponent, facing #8 Massa. Campbell has taken five straight loses to opponents ranked #11, #7, #4, UR and #1. He sorely needs to get back on track, but this would be a steep climb as Massa, injured earlier in the year, seems to be wrestling better now. 

That being said, I expect a solid win for tOSU, but perhaps not 9 of 10.

Here's the full Snyder vs. Coon match from the 2016 Big Ten Championship match:

That is a big dude. Amazing that Snyder pretty much handles him.

That last take down (8:06 mark) was sweet

How do the gold singlets work?  Are they awarded for an individual victory, or must it be a team victory?

HS

My impression is that it is a team award, as with football.

That's sweet, and I think it should be. Giving up less points than expected is just as important in some slots as winning is in others.

I must admit that I attended a summer wrestling camp in Ann Arbor when I was a highschooler.
Would love nothing more than to see and hear this.

Don't worry Kyle, guys, you'll get yours...

GO BUCKEYES!

Coon is a very good heavyweight, Has Snyder by 60#. Just too big of a weight difference. Disappointed with too many Buckeyes who can't seem to wrestle on the mat.

Went to that match yesterday with my son and his wrestling team!  Great to see a lot of red in the crowd.  Great Dual meet win for the Bucks but it felt like a loss when Snyder went down.
