    WTF Dance? You beat Megaludis earlier this year. Hopefully he gets his act together next year.

    I am very happy with 4th, and Dresser winning Coach of the Year.

    Sucks to suck Hawkeyes. Try to avoid VT next year too, please.

    Congrats @linebackeru on a well deserved Natty. I watched our dual earlier this year, and your whole roster was stacked. Lots of talent across the board.

    I don't think Brands tried avoiding VT. National Duals line-ups were being set around the same time VT beat NC State. Also, that doesn't seem like Brands to avoid VT, but I guess it is possible. It didn't work out good for Iowa anyways, as they lost to NC State. But I will agree, it is probably the best thing that happened to VT.

    Of course, Gwiazdowski (or whatever his name is) injured our HWT and got injured again 1st round of Nationals. Oh well, I'm disappointed in a couple Iowa wrestlers that didn't do as good as they should have.

    I hate finishing behind VT though. Quite disappointed with Iowa :L

    Yeah, Mark Hall is an absolute monster. He actually beat the hell out of Nolf last year in a tourney. He is a special wrestler and another bonus point machine coming in. Also have Suriano to replace Nico, and guys like Cortez, Joseph and Cassar RSing this year. We should be even better going forward, despite losing Nico and Mac.

    With Nick Suriano withdrawing to injuries to ankle from last match will be tough for us to repeat. However unranked Gulibon beating #13 MSU Gasca 18-3 started the day off nicely.

    We are actually still teh favorite WITHOUT Suriano wrestling...the team is that good. With Suriano, its a runaway. Jimmy's TF was huge, if he can geta couple conso wins it would be gravy. Just need the big dogs to do what they do and we'll win. Some things fell our way as well with upsets for OSU (both Ohio and Okie st) as well

    I think we win a close one this year and may challenge the all time point total next. Team will be insane good next year

    And a update for anyone interested. Jimmy G won a major decision to stay alive and get more bonus points in his first match today. Zain won a tech fall and into semis tonight. Nolf got a pin and into semis tonight. Vinny J got a 6-5 decision and is into semis tonight. Still have Nickal, Cutch, Hall, and Nevills I believe.

    I am watching it on ESPNU and PSU #3 Joseph with 7 seconds remaining got the 2pts needed to win over #6 Lewis from Missouri. What a speach by Cornells wrestler Dylan Palacio after his match. Hopefully someone videoed it and it will be on yourtube.

    Yup. Hall with another major over 4 seed, into semis tonight as well. Bo with a pin over the 7 seed Dudley from Nebraska, he'll be in semis tonight too. All these bonus points are critical for the team race.

    @linebackeru do you mind changing the title of your thread from Penn State Wrestling 15-16 to just PSU Wrestling Chat thread. There for we don't have to keep creating new wrestling threads. Man all these PSU wrestlers are young and have plenty of years remaining. Love the PSU football staff in support of the wrestlers.

    Something to look at #1 ranked Kyle Snyder HWT advanced but looks to have been injured.

    *Edit: Damn Nevills lost and would have faced Snyder

    Didn't get a chance to see that interview. I'll do some digging and see if I can find a replay somewhere. Unfortunately Cutch and Nevills both lost to the 4 seed in their respective divisions. Still solid showings for both and they have some more chances to earn more points. Regardless of what happens with the team race I think it's pretty obvious that PSU is the most dominant team at the tournament. Crazy to think that they are leading the team race with only 8 guys. Like LBU said, if Suriano would have been able to compete they would have ran away with it, even without him still have a good chance.

    Damn didn't see that Snyder was a little banged up at the end of his last match. Him being injured is probably the only way I could see someone beating him, he's a monster.

    Jimmy G takes a decision agsint the 12 seed Pletcher from Ohio State in the wrestlebacks. Nice win for Jimmy, especially against a wrestler from OSU. He'll head into the all american round tonight as an unranked seed! I believe all 7 of the PSU guys will be in action tonight in the all american round, very good for team championship race.

    I blame us for jinxing the team. We were 5-0 until we started posting about them. I think Cutch & Nevills were following our amazing posts and got nervous and we through them off their game. So tonight when I watch I wont post till after all the games have been wrestled. :pound:
