Purdue vs. Central Michigan

Recommended Posts

Made it to the match. Wow, what a disappointing match. It's one thing to lose, but this was bewildering and

showed some regression.  Hope it was finals week lag. Thoughts - 

The good: Welch had good start. and you got a surprise with your back-up 157 lbr., Thornton adjusting to bigger weight class.

The not as good / questions:   * A few bad RPI matches that they need to win. 

* 157 - where is your starter who is supposed to be your phenom recruit?

* 165 - Your returning NCAA Q at 174 drops down to 165 and loses 14-1 to a kid that was 12-21 last year?

* 197 - Christian Brunner off to a great start, but you can't lose to a back-up 184 lbr - got to win these matches. 

* 141 - Expected more from Limmex dropping down from 149 to 141

*  285 - Big Streck off to a great start, but lost to a guy he already beat twice this year already, including a pin. Hope to see him

              bounce back in a big way. No slumpbusters in the Big Ten Season like this. 

 

* General Weight Cutting - starting to see a worrisome trend - guys sucking some weight this year as in past. You have at least 3 

guys drop a weight this year, and a 157 lbr that tried to make 145.5 in the summer for Junior Freestyle World Team Trials? 

Just doesn't seem healthy long term...

Yes to this. But you have to remember CM usually reloads every year. Not a head hanger here for Purdue. Chance for coaches to look at film and coach to get better. When cutting it sometime takes most of the season to adjust. Just have to go through the season here and evaluate.

Parriott was banged up and they were resting up for Midlands. Limmex lost a close one to a tough wrestler after having a lot of tough matches with quality opponents this year. I think he's looked really good at 141. I don't know what's up with Brunner. Some of these guys definitely looked flat. I liked what I saw out of Koby Reyes, looks like he'll be taking over the starting 149 spot.

Parriott was dealing with pneumonia for almost 2 months.

Is he all good now, or still dealing with it? He didn't look so hot against Princeton but looked really good against Michigan.
