Bucks dual schedule down stretch has been brutal with Iowa, PSU, UM and NCS.

I think Ohio State will win going away, but I’d be shocked if the Buckeyes only lost one bout.

Am I the only one who thinks that Snyder may be best-served by staying home, getting some rest from all the travelling he's had to do these past three weeks, and start getting ready for B1Gs and NCAAs?

According to the OSU and NC State schedules, the match will be televised on the ACC Network - which doesn't actually exist yet. It appears that it may be on ESPN3 / WatchESPN App but I'm not sure. Does anyone know how to watch the match?

I agree and would consider sitting Bo and maybe Nato 2.

I'd rather give those guys time off from practice and have them wrestle. They'll have two weeks to get ready for Big Tens. I really don't think wrestling this dual with a bunch of back ups is a good idea.

Key for Bucks moving forward is to do glue work....fix technique mistakes, prepare for certain guys, tighten up strategy (hint--riding guys out to finish matches is better than playing defense in neutral--dead horse is now officially beaten)...work on bottom...etc...

Ron: several ACC matches — MAC also — are on the espn app. I imagine that is what hey mean by the ACC network.

Hank, don’t blame you for beating that dead horse. It is frustrating that Bo came to TOSU as a beast on top but seems to have lost confidence in his ride to the point he would rather let his opponent up and defend from the neutral position in the last 30 seconds of a match. I love me some Bo and hope he can complete his career as a national champion. I see several of our wrestlers not finishing matches strong, not riding well, not strong at exposing opponents for back points and not being able to get out from the bottom. That being said, I suppose I am measuring our team against the juggernaut that PSU is. After all we are the second ranked dual and tournament team with five individuals who have a chance of being a national champion. I’ll be at the B1G championship rooting our boys on and hoping they all reach their peak performance when it’s time for Nationals.

Looks like ESPN3/WatchESPN will have the dual.

Maybe Bucks should have done what PSU did and schedule a team like Buffalo for last dual?

I've noticed that Bo hasn't rode leg much since he had his foot issue, which leads me to believe that the issue is still bothering him.

I sense that Bo may be ready be done with competing. Competing has been his whole life for...his whole life. And he has been competing with so many injuries, it can't be fun and I could see that ruining the joy of competing. Not sure he has "the fire". Sometimes I wonder the same with Micah, tbh. That said, even so they are still AA level and that is saying something.

And totally agree on the not finishing matches/riding/finishing bonus opportunities/getting ridden out. It is definitely a contrast to what you see from PSU. Maybe they'll pick it up here in March.

I look back at some of his RS, freshman & sophomore matches and you can see the difference in what he is doing now. Back then he would ride tough, shoot more, and he would punish his opponents. I hope he can amp it up in the next few weeks.

Is it just me or did Bo casually drop a couple bombs on this episode?!?!

"I have to get chemo on my tumor again this offseason."

"There might be an opening on the coaching staff for next year..."
