Loved the leadership Kollin showed throughout his career.    Even without the big one he leaves the program as one of the best to do it.  I always appreciated his work ethic and passion for the sport.  Good luck in your future endeavors Mr Moore.

Well deserved for Slammin’ Sammy Sasso, as my 7 yr old calls him.  Great season.  He will be even better and more prepared next season.  Unfortunate that he won’t have the opportunity to be Ohio State’s second 4x NCAA champ.  I really loved the leadership this year from Pletch, Moore, and Sasso.  2020/21 will be interesting for sure.

I have a co-worker who has a son who is 2 years behind Gaffney in the same AAU system.  He made the comment when Gaffney signed that he was soft and didn’t feel he’d make it at OSU.  I told him the rankings didn’t portray that but who knows.  Welp he was right.

Really rough draws in the 2nd round of the NCAAs for our guys.  Another Smith vs White matchup at 165.  Another Brooks vs Jordan matchup at 184.  Another possible Gas Tank Gary vs Cassioppi matchup.  Sasso with a 3 seed and some interesting matchup possibilities with another B1G foe in Verkleen also in the second round.

On the other hand I like Romero’s draw.  If Malik can win his first match it’s possible he could advance in the winners bracket a few rounds.  Last but not at all least your Ohio State Captain’s with 1 seeds.

Its going to be interesting with not many in attendance for the tourney.  I guess ESPN is televising all of it though.

I’ll take a stab at the 2020-2021 roster.

125 - Heinselman comes back stronger and more confident and is an AA.

133 - Tough weight to forecast but Koontz or Decatur if he can make weight.

141 - This is where it gets more fun.  Can Kinner drop?  Maybe Echemedia? Decatur is my guess.

149 - Does Sasso stay here?  If not then Echemedia or Kinner.  Echemedia.

157 - Sasso if he wants to bump.  Echemedia if not.

165 - Karchla or Smith.  Karchla

174 - Smith/Romero.  Smith

184 - Jordan/Romero.  Jordan

197 - Singletary/Hoffman.  Singletary

285 - Traub/Hoffman.  Traub

What a weekend!  I was a little disappointed in the way Saturday went but momentum began to change into the evening rounds.  The guys had a great overall tourney and I’m 100% sure Sasso will be salty about the result of his final match.  The path will be tougher coming from a lower seed at the NCAAs for him but he has the skill to get to the finals.  Pletcher and Moore have been great senior Captains and finishing things off with a championship will be icing on great careers.

I can’t believe all the talk of taking Tua at #2.  Did they really give Haskins enough ammo and protection to show what he can do?  IMO no they didn’t but I also didn’t watch him every week.  I caught some games and highlights/low lights, but am not able to answer that.

As much as I’m not a fan, Franklin is the only one over 5 mil a year that has “earned” it.  Day should be in the 5 mil a year category sooner than later one would think and it will be earned.
