Here we go! B1G duals season begins. Projected lineups. Intermat rankings.

125-No. 22 Brendan McCrone (R-Fr) or Vinny Kilkeary (Fr.) vs Justin Cardani (R-Sr.)
133-No. 12 Nic Bouzakis (R-Fr.) vs Tony Madrigal (Gr.)
141-No. 3 Jesse Mendez (So.) vs No. 25 Danny Pucino (R-So.)
149-No. 5 Dylan D'Emilio (R-Sr.) vs No. 10 Kannon Webster (Fr.)
157-No. 17* Isaac Wilcox (Sr.) vs .Joe Roberts (Jr.)
165-Bryce Hepner (R-Jr.) vs No. 25 Chris Moore (Fr.)
174-Rocco Welsh (Fr.) vs No. 3 Edmond Ruth (R-Jr.) or Caden Ernd (Jr.)
184-Ryder Rogotzke (Fr.) or Seth Shumate (R-Fr.)/Gavin Bell (R-Jr.) vs Dylan Connell (R-So.)
197-No. 23 Luke Geog (R-Fr.) vs Isiah Pettigrew (Jr.) or Peter Marinopoulos (Fr.)
HWT-No. 18 Nick Feldman (R-Fr.) vs. No. 13 Luke Luff man (R-Jr.)
* Ranking at 165

125 I'd like to see Kilkeary get a match here. I think it's a tough match no matter who we wrestle. Cardani is in his 6th yr and that should matter.
133 Again, I don't believe this is a gimme. Madrigal is a 6th yr GR and a 3x NQ.
141 I expect bonus here and at least five.
149 Dylan has looked good and he needs to win here. Webster is 9-1 on the season.
157 Wilcox has made the cut. This seems telling...
165 It's time for Hepner to get it going. I hope he agrees.
174 If Ruth wrestles he should win. Welsh though is a tough out and Kharch may be done as well, so Rocco may as well get started.
184 No Hoffman listed. Let Shumate get a start. I would like to see Rogotzke keep his RS (he's wrestled three duals).
197 Geog needs a convincing victory. For me if not for him.
285 This is the start of a tough run for Feldman. A win here will be big.

Go Buckeyes.

125: I agree with MPhillips - would like to see Kilkeary get the nod here. No real reason, just would like to see him and with the B1G schedule getting started, McCrone will have plenty of good matches coming up. Either way, Cardani is a tough out. He's been around and will provide a tough test for any of the young Bucks that get sent out.
133: Bouzakis should win, but same as 125 Madrigal is seasoned and is a tough out for anyone.
141: Should be at least 5 for Mendez.
149: Will be a good test for D'Emilio. DD is wrestling very well but Webster is extremely talented. Should be a good match.
157: I'm interested to see how Wilcox will perform down at 157. He's been pretty consistent this year, but that's been up at 165. How will he perform first time down?
165: Hepner is dangerous and can provide a threat to the majority of the country at 165 as proven against Cornell, but it just depends if he believes that every time he goes out there.
174: Agree that if Ruth goes he should win, but I am interested to see Welsh if it is in fact Ruth that goes for Illinois. Should be a good match, but it will be a good test to see where Welsh stands against the top dogs early in his career.
184: Need to figure something out. I know Hoffman is back down to this weight, but he has not looked great. I think the long term answer is Rogotzke, but Shumate has shown glimpses as times that he can provide long term coverage of this weight for the Bucks. This is an interesting weight moving forward for the Bucks.
197: Would love to see Geog get going. I think he's right there, but needs to get his confidence boosted up a bit and a good showing tonight might help get his confidence boosted in the right direction heading toward the B1G season.
HWT: Start to a big run coming up for Feldman. As MPhillips said, a win tonight against a tough Luffman here would be a good start for Feldman.

Go Bucks!!

Year i was told.
Not good. After the hvywght match won by OSU to clinch the match, I saw Gallagher being all smiles and glad for the team win and slapping hands with Feldman and congratulating him. Didn't seem bothered by his loss via tech fall. So if he go injured in that match, it wasn't evident after the match was over. Hope he doesn't get on the injury train that Karchla has been riding for awhile.
 
Yeah unless he or OSU decides he can’t do anymore damage to injury and he wrestles on it. They have Wilson who can make weight so not sure why wrestling Paddy hurt would be a better option.
