    I don’t think it will near that easy. I see 7 weights as very tough bouts. Looks like a good early test against a much improved Minnesota.

    After thinking we might see Picc, Chandler, & Jacobe move up this year, turns out only Kaid does...meanwhile Minny slides 4 guys up. A back-to-back on the road is always tough, especially early in the year. Think we see several competitive matches...

    125: Picc by dec
    133: Daton by dec
    141: McKee by dec (no idea here but McKee won at 65 kg this summer)
    149: Thorn by dec (Thorn is good on top and G will be small for the weight, think the outcome would (will?) be reversed later in the year)
    157: Shomers by dec
    165: Chandler by fall
    174: Jacobe by dec
    184: Dakota by dec (hoping for a better showing from him)
    197: Anderson by dec (he beat Tanner Sloan this year)
    285: Derek by dec (big fan of Gable but Derek is making me a believer)

    Pokes 24-9

    Mike, not sure if you are joking or not, but do you know what weight Joe actually certified at?

    Track shows he made 174 two weeks ago, so that means he weighed between 165.1 and 174 at that time.

    I don’t think Geer beats Webster and I don’t think White beats Steveson.

    Could be. Was predicting the Geer win because Webster lost to the guy Geer beat last night. Doesn't guarantee anything but I thought it should make him the favorite.

    You might be right, just throwing in my two cents. I hope 285 proves me wrong, but Gable hasn’t lost a match in a long time.

    While I don't think it will happen but Minny is very capable winning the first 3 weights especially coming off the travel and quick turnaround.

    Well if the plan was for him to potentially wrestle 184 there isn't a big need to cut which he did to certify at 174.

    I think anywhere from 165-184 is possible for him. Will be interesting to see where things stand in January.

    Radio broadcast said yesterday that Joe certified for 157 but they doubted that he would ever be there

    I think Gable hasn't lost a folkstyle match since like 7th or 8th grade. He would definitely be the favorite if Vegas was doing odds. Just have a feeling that Derek will win.

    Wish we had coaches/wrestlers in the room that could push him. Puts him at a real disadvantage training wise.

    Well that would make sense based on what Track shows.

    Ha! Well you were right about 285. That one surprised me a little.
