But the two real questions are:
New Orleans? That noted wrestling hotbed? Bobby Boucher might have made a good middle weight!!
Could the PSU lineup beat the best lineup made up of the rest of the teams at the dual?

If the sport is ever gonna grow, we need to take it to the people (or at least to places where they want to go).

Otherwise let's make Des Moines the permanent NCAA Tournament host.
I've been seeing really good things coming from the youth level out of LA. North DeSoto has a solid team and I've seen a few others. Events like this could provide the spark to get more kids interested in the sport!

Agree, having events at locations with other attractions likely increases the chances of making wrestling trips family affairs and increasing fans.

Why? What are you questioning? Digger simply stated what he received in the mail, right?

when this came out a few weeks ago in the dresser interview I started looking into it.

Just yesterday the fam and I were talking again about it. I think we may take our winter vacation there. costs for rental car and flights out of BWI arent bad.

Besides the obvious tours/wrestling/Bourbon st. there is some good fishing I found. So for us there is a little something for everyone in my fam.

If anyone else is thinking about going chime in.

Keep in mind that if they use the same format as last year, Penn State will not see Lehigh or aOSU. It's still an interesting question so here's a linup:

125 - Arujau (Corn)
133 - Biscoglia (ISU)
or Orine (NCSt)
141 - D'Emilio (aOSU)
149 - Yianni (Corn)
157 - O'Connor (UNC)
165 - Carr (ISU)
(Kharchla if Carr leaves)
174 - Lewis (VT)
Edit: Lautt (UNC) or Smith (aOSU)
184 - it doesn’t really matter
(Hidlay or Keckeisen. This weight is actually stacked behind Brooks)
197 - Truax (Poly)
H - Orndorff (aOSU)

That would be a hell of a dual.

Was just about to do the same exercise. I don't see VTech on the list of teams so 174 would probably be Lautt or E. Smith. I agree would be a heck of a dual.

WrestleStat has the good guys losing that dual, 19-17. This is how the algorithm sees it:

Vito MD Howard
RBY MD Biscoglia
D'Emilio DEC Bartlett
Yianni MD Van Ness
O'Connor MD Barraclough
Carr MD Facundo
C* Dec Lautt
Brooks Dec Hidlay
Dean Dec Truax
Kerkvliet MD Orndorf

I would like our chances to change the result at 141 and to hold one or two of those majors to regular decisions, which would make it something like 20-14 Penn State.

Will PSU be participating in the Southern Scuffle?

Still held in Chattanooga around New Years Day?
Should be able to stop over in Chattanooga on the way home from New Orleans and the duals.... great holiday season for the Nits and spreading their excellence over the south.

I would be surprised if they would wrestle a tournament just two weeks after the duals and shortly before the start of the B1G season.
