I didn't actually get to watch the meet, but hey, here are the results
125 (LOSS): Sanders beat Megaludis 6-2. Sanders is a really solid wrestler and I'm not really upset about this.
133 (MAJOR LOSS): #7 David Thorn majored Derek Reber. Man, I wish Andrew Long wasn't an idiot.
141 (MAJOR LOSS): It's not getting any better. #10 Dardanes majored Sam Sherlock.
149 (WIN): Frank beat #5 Dylan Ness 16-10. Frank scored 16 points in a match! I can't believe it!
157 (LOSS): #9 Deitchler beat #11 Dylan Alton 8-4.
165 (GLORIOUS UNICORN TRIUMPH): Taylor tech falled #8 Cody Yohn.
174: 717 PIN YO! ED RUTH! WOO!
184 (FAILURE! BLOW UP THE PROGRAM! FIRE CAEL!) Quentin Wright lost to Steinhaus. Steinhaus is a really good wrestler, but when Q is wrestling at his top level, it's not even close; he's better. But Q's a slow starter to his seasons, I suppose.
197 (LOSS): True frosh Morgan McIntosh took down senior #2 Cody Yohn with less than 20 seconds left to take a 3-1 lead. Yohn escaped and got a takedown of his own to win the match 4-3. Just that kind of day for the Lions, plus McIntosh is young and prone to such mistakes. Not every true freshman can have Taylor level awareness.
HWT (LOSS): At this point, even a pin would have only gotten us a tie, but #4 Wade went ahead and lost to #3 Tony Nelson in an exciting 5-0 match.
Final score: Minnesota 23, Penn State 14
At this point, we have four really good weights (149, 165, 174, 184 (wake up, Q!)), three or four decent weights with fair room for improvement (157, 197, HWT, and one of the lower weights - Nico?), and two or three really rough lower weights.
This is a very solid team, but they have a ton of work to do before Big Tens several months from now.
Also, scheduling this match for November was still a completely silly decision on the part of the conference.
Who should replace Cael Sanderson?
