Yeah yeah, all about football this week I get it. And I'll be there with bells on Saturday. BUT Sunday at 2 pm, we are going to have a cakewalk in GIA against an unranked Drexel squad in the world's best (oldest?) manly sport. By the end of the season you people are going to LOVE wrestling. Watch. Literally. Either go to GIA and watch, or watch on ESPN+ ,

Potential Lineups (rankings by Wrestlestat, because frankly, they are all within a few of each other, and its easier to find em all and goes out farther than 30. Sue me. If Coach Smith has more wrestleoffs and/or rankings change, will update)


125: #11 Trevor Mastrogiovanni v. #86 Antonio Mininno (5-4)
133: #1 Daton Fix v. #179 Deon Pleasant (3-6)
141: #246 Carter Young v. #131 Tyler Williams (3-5) (Lost to Dusty Hone 6-0 in 2019)
149: #21 Kaden Gfeller v. #42 Luke Nichter (7-1) INJURED so ??? Maybe #144 Gabe Onorato (6-5)
157: #21 Wyatt Sheets v. #55 Parker Kropman (10-2) (Got majored by Sheets 13-3 in 2019)
165: #6 Travis Wittlake v. #47 Evan Barczak (8-2)
174: #18 Dustin Plott v. #8 Michael O'Malley (8-0)
184: #8 Dakota Geer v. #54 Bran McLaughlin (6-2) (pinned and majored by Geer in 2019/20 season)
197: #1 AJ Ferrari v. #71 Sean O'Malley (0-1)
285: #44 Luke Surber v. #232 Liam Dietrich (1-5)

To be fair this is going to be a runaway, but the two big things to look for here is

1) The match at 174, which is only match Drexel will be favored in (slightly). O'Malley is 8-0 with 5 pins and 2 tech falls.

2) Bonus points. We really need to see our guys score some big bonus points against an outmanned team. 157 through 184 is clearly their strengths, and we have some guys with something to prove at those weights so will be fun to watch. 157 might be interesting since Sheets hasn't been dominating and Kropman has beaten a ranked guy early.

Homer Prediction: TF or Falls from 133, 184, 197. Major at 125, 285, 149. Final: 40-0 give or take a couple.

After this we are off for 2 weeks when we face OU on December 12 at 2:00 in Norman, which will be a much more competitive match.

bigbadbob-Thank you for your pre match and post match posts. Your threads are the best source for OSU wrestling and much appreciated by this fan. I am a basketball enthusiast. Grew up playing and coached a little. Have OSU season tickets. Have hd OSU season football tickets for 25 years.

But by far my favorite in person sport at OSU is wrestling. Going on 5 years of season tickets now and I wish more people would jump on board. For the entertainment value there is nothing like it. The only thing missing is a “Coach Smith Cam” in match. It’s worth the price just to watch him. He lives every second of every match like he’s back out there and when he doesn’t I’m guessing it’s bc he’s completely disgusted w what he’s watching. Having him mic’d up would be a bonus.

Thanks man. I appreciate it :)

He’s is especially funny when he jumps up and moves around like he’s doing the move himself lol. Incidentally; I’ve been trying to get KSPI to make his Monday coaches show available by pod so you don’t have to listen to it live every Monday. Hopefully they will listen.

I have had season tickets the past five years and the bleacher, floor, and 200 level sell out every year. I finally had enough priority points and upgraded to floor level this year. My guess is it will be packed Sunday due to people staying over from Bedlam game. They check your tickets for floor level and bleacher seats and won’t let you come down there without a ticket. I don’t think they have students in lower level and they are in 200 level. It does not seem they have large student attendance for wrestling.

Match starts at 2:00 pm so I typically get there 30- minutes early but I have Gold parking so I don’t have far to walk.

A little off topic but what happened with Balmeceda? Disappointed to see him transfer out. He looked like a lock as a future AA and potential national champ when we signed him.
