Got hosed. Sad refs don’t call stalling when Enzo backs up for the whole third period. At least give him the chance in OT. Ridiculous.

He is wrestling much better and took out Marrineli. I like his odds in two weeks, he will be a title contender. If he wrestles Joseph again, he wins. Even with the terrible non stalling call he only lost in a locked hands penalty.

Duals are different. Technically there is a rule that a random weight class is drawn from a deck of cards (I believe) that is why different duals start at different weights. Being that this is a tournament they can do a “marquee match” where they will end with what coaches vote as the top match, being that that it is most likely at heavyweight anyways they will most likely just go small to big and start at 125.

It's amazing how stacked the Big Ten is in this sport. Here's hoping to a podium finish in the national championship. If the wrestle like this, they have a good shot! Just hate that OSU and PSU are 1/2.

Still a lot to play out in the cancellation bracket this morning, but they don’t have a realistic path to a championship. That said, this is a great showing by the wrestling team and they have a bright future. PSU and OSU will almost certainly finish 1 and 2 in the NCAA tournament as well and Michigan should certainly be in the top 5. Can’t wait to see he guys wrestle this afternoon, exciting time for M wrestling.

Both have six in the finals, I'm not quite sure on the math, but I'm pretty sure Michigan can't take first or second no matter what.  OSU and PSU are the top two teams in the nation tho, and I think that Michigan has a good chance of taking 3rd at the NCAAs, which is way ahead of where we were finishing for years and years.  Our recruiting has improved immmensely the last couple of years and our facilities are top notch!  I look forward to competing for national titles in the near future!!!
