Discussion Topic: Lag Time Topic: Ranking The Buckeyes (2017-2018)
Hank Kornblut added to this discussion on August 24, 2017

The Bucks are taking a calculated risk by inserting McKenna at 149 and shuffling Micah to 157. Both wrestlers have proven themselves as high AA competitors at their previous weights. Both are obviously outstanding. But how will they respond to the moves up? My guess is they'll be fine. But it is something that all of us will watch closely.

Hayes is talented but unproven at the upper echelon level of 141 pounds. How will he stack up at this competitive weight class? And Campbell is a wild card as well. He's obviously good. But how good? Will he improve enough in the Buckeye room to go from good to great?

Historically speaking, this appears on paper to be the best Bucks team in history. I am excited to watch them compete. And I'm pissed beyond belief that the NCAAs in Cleveland are on St Pat's Day.

Quote from Chris Shepherd's post:

"
Pletcher at 133 is the most under the radar, intriguing fella in the line-up to me. The kid just has fire running through him. He was a very near miss up at weight and as competitive as they come. That doesn't happen in Div I NCAA wrestling. "



Pletcher is intriguing to me because his weight cut was minimal compared to everyone else in the 141# weight class. He'll be shaving off an additional 8#, how does that affect him during the course of a season. With Gross, Micic & Brock being the top dogs at this weight starting the season, there's plenty of opportunity for him to quickly ascend the rankings."



Well said, Dwight from State Farm. That is precisely the essence of my own line of thinking. Weight class composition has to be the basis for ranking them, and where each Buckeye stands in that Composition. Personally, I think Pletcher is situated very well for the season ahead.tons of upside for him to ascend quickly.

I was going to do this - but I almost felt "dirty" when I started so I stopped. Seemed strange to rank such tough guys so low.

I see 9 hammers and one Thor's Hammer.

McKenna starts out with a #7.

Is Jake Ryan still wrestling?

I have seen elsewhere that Ryan is still wrestling but is coming back from multiple injuries and can't do a whole lot.

Pretty sure it was stated that he is taking the year off to heal from injuries.

Bo ranked #3. I am assuming Hall has grown...

Zahid is tough and M. Hall only can grow into the weight. Winning 174 as a freshman is astounding even with some controversy. This will be an interesting weight if Bo is health.
