I'm not a flo groupie, but this may be worth a listen for aficionados of the sport:
FRL 352 - Penn State Dominated Ohio State + What Is Oklahoma State Doing?

(IMHO) this is not nearly as bad as it appears -- except for the fact that it happened at home.
- the Roman Bravo-Young vs. Luke Pletcher result is not surprising, if we look at how each performed against common opponents.  This goes to show that rankings don't amount to much.
- Nick Lee and Joey McKenna have now traded a pair of 7-to-6 decisions with each other.
Tournament time most likely will be different, depending on the brackets.

Much more diversity among the women (3 Japanese, 3 Russian, 2 Mongolian, 2 U.S.) than the men (all 10 from Russia), in terms of champions..

On further review, the only PSU wrestlers with "dominant" performances were Nolf and Bravo-Young.
Nickal and Cassar were almost dominant, but not really.  The other four won ugly.

credit Rich Lorenzo and the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club for developing Penn State into 'the NY Yankees of college wrestling'

one other possible explanation is they were doing what they needed to do to win, and no more

Note that Penn State is known for bonus point scoring.
25 points from 8 wins = only one bonus point situation (+1)
Additionally, Nebraska is no joke.
