  1. Don’t believe Red qualifies from an article on Flo: Just two months out from the 2019 NCAA championships, we now have an added layer of intrigue as the Olympic Redshirt criteria have been released. Let's first take a look at the criteria: Past national team members (top three from the World or Olympic Team Trials) Top eight at the 2019 Senior U.S. Open Top three at the 2019 NCAA Wrestling Championship; or NCAA champion from a previous year AND top two from the 2019 U23 World Team Trials (must accomplish both). Previous Cadet, Junior, U23 world medalist Obviously, no one has yet met criterion No. 2 and No. 3 as NCAAs and the U.S. Open haven't occurred for this year. But, who's already met items No. 1 and No. 4, meaning they can apply for an Olympic redshirt to miss the 2019-20 NCAA season? Qualifiers of No. 1 - Past national team members (top three from the World or Olympic Team Trials) Mason Manville, Penn State - 2017 Greco-Roman World Team Member at 75kg Nick Reenan, NC State - 2018 National Team, second place at 86kg Jaydin Eierman, Missouri - 2018 National Team, third place at 65kg Tate Orndorff, Utah Valley - 2018 National Team, third place at 130k (Greco) Qualifiers of No. 4 - Previous Cadet, Junior, U23 World Medalist Jordan Wood, Lehigh - silver medal, 2014 Cadet World Championships Owen Webster, Minnesota - bronze medal, 2015 Cadet World Championships Jarod Verkleeren, Penn State - gold medal, 2015 Cadet World Championships Yianni Diakomihalis, Cornell - gold medal, 2015 Cadet World Championships Spencer Lee, Iowa - gold medal, 2016 Junior World Championships Mark Hall, Penn State - gold medal, 2016 Junior World Championships Daton Fix, Oklahoma State - bronze medal, 2016 Junior World Championships Taylor LaMont, Utah Valley - bronze medal, 2016 Junior World Championships (Greco) Travis Wittlake, Oklahoma State - bronze medal, 2016 Cadet World Championships Jacob Warner, Iowa - bronze medal, 2016 Cadet World Championships Kurt McHenry, Michigan - gold medal, 2016 Cadet World Championships David Carr, Iowa State - bronze medal, 2016 Cadet World Championships Vito Arujau, Cornell - silver medal, 2016 Cadet World Championships Mitch McKee, Minnesota - silver medal, 2017 Junior World Championships Ryan Deakin, Northwestern - silver medal, 2017 Junior World Championships Zahid Valencia, Arizona State - silver medal, 2017 Junior World Championships Kollin Moore, Ohio State - bronze medal, 2017 Junior World Championships Gable Steveson, Minnesota - gold medal, 2017 Junior World Championships Cevion Severado, Missouri - silver medal, 2017 Junior World Championships (Greco) Jacori Teemer, Arizona State - bronze medal, 2017 Cadet World Championships Will Lewan, Michigan - gold medal, 2017 Cadet World Championships Daniel Gregory Kerkvliet, Ohio State - gold medal, 2017 Cadet World Championships Aaron Brooks, Penn State - gold medal, 2017 Cadet World Championships Gavin Hoffman, Ohio State - bronze medal, 2017 Cadet World Championships Cohlton Schultz, Arizona State - bronze medal, 2018 Junior World Championships (Greco) Andrew Berreyesa, Cornell - silver medal, 2018 Junior World Championships (Greco) Zach Elam, Missouri - silver medal, 2018 Junior World Championships Mekhi Lewis, Virginia Tech - gold medal, 2018 Junior World Championships Brady Berge, Penn State - bronze medal, 2018 Junior World Championships Abe Assad, Iowa - bronze medal, 2018 Cadet World Championships Matt Ramos, Minnesota - gold medal, 2018 Cadet World Championships
  2. Most likely Olympic redshirts? Lee? Yianni? Hall? Zahid? Gable? Micic? Fix? Lee and Yianni have the best chance to make the Olympic team. Tough sledding in the middle/upper weights with guys like Burroughs, Dake, Taylor, Cox, Snyder. Will be fun to throw Nolf and Bo in the mix. Also guys like McKenna, Eierman, etc
  3. Super impressed with Nolf interviews after both semis and finals victories. Very calm and collected. Great humility. Made me a fan! Excited to see him and Bo compete at the senior level.
  4. True but you are assuming as well. Nolf May have wrestled differently but maybe it wouldn’t have mattered. I know Hidlay looked like the better wrestler. And I think it’s fair to say he was robbed because that TD very well could’ve won him the match.
  5. Yep you’re right. Completely forgot they wrestled this year. Must’ve blocked it out
  6. Overall thoughts: 1) Embarrassing that Nolf won that match. Absolutely outwrestled and Hilday was robbed. Nolf is out of the Hodge and it’s all Nickal at this point. 2) It didn’t make sense at the time and makes less sense today but they should’ve never pulled Parris’s redshirt. You could clearly see he needed a year to grow into that weight class. 3) Surprised by Lewis but maybe we shouldn’t be. Made a junior world team. Want to be elite? Make age-level world teams. Look at the guys who’ve done in on the world level. Lee, Fix, Yianni, Zahid, Hall, Steveson, etc. 4) Steveson should’ve never lost that match. I’m actually shocked he didn’t get it done. Got sloppy on one exchange so it’s his own fault. But I hate when guys like Cassar get rewarded with absolutely no offense. 5) I have a buddy who wrestled at Lowell and grew up around the Deans. So I’ve always rooted for them from afar. Good for Max Dean. As for Cornell, I think if I had a son who was being recruited right now. It would be Penn St #1 (and I dislike penn state) and Cornell #2. Those two programs always seem to get the most out of their guys. 6) Indiana as a state has a long way to go. 7) really excited for Fix-Suriano. Anyone else remember that insane marathon match they wrestled at who’s #1? 😎 Yianni might be my favorite wrestler in the entire NCAA. Just fun to watch. I think Erieyman (spelling) was the only guy in that weight class who can beat him. 9) A topic for another day but how many of these guys will take Olympic redshirts next year? A lot of these guys have had world level success. See #3 above. 10) Finals picks: Lee, Fix, Yianni, Ashnault, Nolf, Joseph, Zahid, Dean, Nickal, Cassar
  7. Mostly lightweights? Purdue getting Pokorney is a good get. One of the top recruits in Indiana.
  8. Picks? Mostly chalk for me. 125-Lee 133-Micic 141-Lee 149-Ashnault 157-Nolf 165-Joseph 174-Hall 184-Martin 197-Nickal 285-Steveson
  9. Do we really need them? Our best college guys are finding success on the International level.
  10. 1) 100% agree on the step out 2) First injury time used when opponent has not been called for an illegal move = opponent gets choice. Second time wrestler must withdraw. Stops (hopefully)wrestler from using injury time to recover and if a wrestler is that injured he must stop the match twice, probably shouldn’t be in there. 3) I’m good with a 4 point near fall and a 3 point takedown. Keep rewarding offensive wrestling
  11. Looks like it was smart for Carr to sit out the Penn St dual to preserve his seeding.
  12. Don’t think you’ll ever get full wrestlebacks at state. To the IHSAA the point is to crown the champion. So it doesn’t matter to them that someone who got 5th shouldve been 3rd. Any wrestleback efforts should be aimed at the semi state. Go back to taking three from regionals (have to win two matches) and add a wrestle back round to semi state.
  13. So 8th/4th > 6th/2nd/1st/3rd ?
  14. Hard to know for sure but I believe it could've been a bigger spread than a 6 point victory? It looked like he wanted to cut Rioux and keep going after it but coaches content to pitch the shut out?
  15. Not as impressive as majoring a defending state champ.
