Very impressive start. Wins the wrestle off agains Assad and today beats #6 Russell of Edinboro. Wowza.

Hank - I'm sure you're in the know with UM. Will he RS?

Lol! I'm as in the know with UM as I am with the Buckeyes. In other words...I make educated guesses.

If I'm Joe McFarland and company, I'm "all in" this season. Best wrestler starts esp. if he has AA capability. Micic, Massa and Coon could all be finalists. Amine, Abounader, Beazley and Pantaleo are AA candidates as well. So, yes, I expect Mattlin to be the starter. If you're UM, you're feeling like this team has a shot to win it all.

Sincere apologies about the misspelled name, my phone auto corrected. I miss real keyboards.

Looks like he will not redshirt. Wrestled in the Lehigh dual and lost to Cruz 7-0. Lehigh beat Michigan pretty solidly.

What happened in the dual against Lehigh? - UM did not look like the 3rd best team in the country in that meet?

Everything that I have seen has had high expectations this year for UM, but they sure looked flat against Lehigh.

Any exlpanations?

UM got their butts kicked. They were missing two starters but that doesn't explain losing 157, 174 and 184. Lehigh might be underrated.

I think a couple things are in play here. One, Lehigh has been wrestling damn good right outta the gate here lately. Two, I think UM has been underperforming thus far. They have a lineup that would be competing for a national title in most normal years. But this certainly won't be a normal year. We're at the peak of the arms race and we're seeing super teams with unparalleled depth up and down the line-up. I don't know how much stock to really put into November results when it comes to UM though. It's a long season!

Chris: I put ZERO stick in November results. If Ohio State, Penn State, Oklahoma State, and Lehigh had quad and Ohio State won by a combined score of 240 to -2 (Cael threw a chair again and John went crazy during the 125 match), I still wouldn't pick Ohio State in March.

Madness. So glad #CLE2018 is only months away! See y'all soon.

I wouldn't either, honestly. They don't give out NCAA titles in November. November is about getting your sealegs under you in progression towards the ultimate goal. Some get there faster than others. As the season progresses we'll get a better and better picture of who are the contenders and who are the pretenders. Happy Thanksgiving, all! Go Bucks!
