If anyone is interested in taking a break from FB or COVID talk (since BB is on pause), Husker have their toughest match of the year tonight. I_wa has all 10 wrestlers ranked in the top 8 of their weight class. Kind of like Alabama in football these days with all the talent.

I am calling an upset at 174 with #4 Mikey Labriola beating #1 Kemerer late in the match.

Worthless factoid of day. Less than half (maybe about 40%) of power 5 conf schools have wrestling. Was surprised to see that the other day.

It's not much of a sport in the South. Mostly just Midwest, Northeast, Northwest and Carolina states.

Pville I appreciate your keeping us up to date. Cloud must still be avoiding this board unfortunately
we have started out poorly. Lose by pin and then tech fall and behind 11-0 after 2 matches. Red hanging in there against another #1 ranked wrestler.

Down 17-0 after 4 matches. I_wa is strong in all weight classes, while Huskers not very strong at lower weights. After 157 weight class, I think we get to our stronger wrestlers.

Down 21-0 at intermission. Last year we lost 8 of 10 matches, but competed in every match. Not so much so far this year.

Now down 24-0. At 174 where I called the Labriola upset. Except I_wa didn’t send out #1 Kemmerer so he is going against an unranked opponent.

I'm confused about the 6-2 offense and 5-1 offense comment. Humbly asking for more explanation. TIA
Volleyball language. 5-1 means there's just one setter who sets in every rotation with five hitters. 6-2 means there are two setters and six hitters, but obviously not on the court at the same time.
