Glad you agree about the best days of TV sports. eSpin is showing the NCAA wrestling championships today through the finals Sat. evening. PSU has a handicap of having only 8 wrestlers at the event. Nick Suriano, 125#'s scratched after the turned ankle suffered at the NCAA dual's against Okie State a month ago meaning we are down a vital point scoring machine.
Zain Retherford won his 60th consecutive match with a Tech Fall this afternoon. Bo Nickal and several others scored Tech Falls as well trying to make up for the missing wrestlers point total. At 197 #'s Matt McCutchen scored an unexpected pin adding to PSU's opening day leading 16 points. Okie State's 10 wrestlers dropped to 9 with a loss and tOSU's 10 dropped as well with losses but they also scored bonus points to nip at PSU's heels.
It will take a minor miracle for our boys to win the championship with the reduced team number but they are wrestling like they are on fire today.
Stay tuned. By Sat. evening we will know the outcome.
