Nebraska Wrestling

Recommended Posts

Overall a pretty solid day for Nebraska.  


125--Nice job by Cronin to finally get off the schneid and beat that kid who beat Cronin 3 times last year.

133--Sjomeling put up a game effort, fun match to watch.

141--Woof, hard not to feel that Duncan got a little jobbed there.  Perfect timing on the brick toss by Manning to get Red a fresh start.  That being said, that roll through reversal and picking up the 2 NF by Red was an NWO approved TOOO SWEEET

149--Lots of action but Lovett just wrecked shop on that kid.  Will be interesting to see who gets the nod at 149 between he and Hardy.  I didn't realize Lovett walks around in the 155 range, the cut to 133 last year must've been absolutely brutal on him.  

157--Nice win by Licking, the Big Ten gets 7 allocations for NCAAs at 157 and it would be pretty awesome if Licking can nab one of those spots.  He's got a good shot.  Hopefully he gets a favorable draw at Big Tens.

165--Another really fun match, Robb just kinda got out-toughed in a few spots by the other Braunagel.  Was a great to see Robb shooting more.  More of that please.

174--Was nice to see Labriola fuming coming off that mat that he wasn't able to get the pin at 174.  174 is ludicrously stacked with 5 of the top 6 guys (per Intermat) in the nation all in the Big Tens.  Gonna be some absolute wars.

184--See above

197--Solid, workmanlike W.  Great chance to drop the hammer at Big Tens.  Would imagine he'll get Caffey from MSU in the semis and then the winner of Amine/Warner in the finals should he make it that far.

285---Lance is gonna need to learn how to win those types of matches if he wants to hit AA.

Man, I'm not sure what was wrong with Venz prior but he looked incredible yesterday.  Braunagel from Illinois is pretty tough and Venz just came out and pole-axed him.  Maybe he just needed some time away to clear his head.

I was a bit shocked myself. I hope he can continue to look that good thru the B1G tourney and the NCAA's.
