The Badgers host Ohio State Friday night at 7 p.m. in the UW Field House. The dual will be streamed live on BTN Plus, but fans should take advantage of Youth Night ticket special, where each adult ticket purchased can be used to admit four children 12 and under for free.

This could be big for us in B1G tourney and the NCAAs. Johnny isn't a national champ but could easily win a couple matches at nationals.

I was just looking at the Flo rankings. I thought Jimenez would be in the 17-20 range. Hope Stickley can get healthy.

Stickley and Ritter.  They never mentioned the severity of Ritter's injury.  Hopefully that is not a sign of a significant knee injury.

I'm guessing they are just being cautious and will have them back soon. Nice to see the staff let us know what is going on.

Exactly. Forgot about Ritter.

Flo Rankings were from December 31. Most of the rankings probably were assuming Jimenez was still redshirting

Eli Stickley at #20. Impressive !

Rankings came out yesterday. I meant I thought that he would fit in the 17-20 range in the current rankings.

Mine too, if all they're looking for is a possible win or two at nationals, doesn't seem like a great reason to pull the redshirt.

Mine too. I don't see much advantage for the team in doing this. Lantz and JJ are close - likely to score roughly comparable points down the road. The team isn't fighting for much of anything so a few extra points here and there won't matter. The only thing I can think of is that JJ himself wants to compete and told the coach that he was coming out.

But...let's go JJ!

I questioned why they didn't RS his freshman year with his chances being almost zero to qualify for nationals and some posters took offense to that.

I know we don't know and probably never will know the reasoning behind pulling it we can only speculate.  Lantz weight issues?  Johnny got that itch.  Johnny not planning on sticking around UW for 5 years.

IMO the difference is pretty big. The match was close between them but that is because they practice all the time. I don't think Jens would be borderline nationals whereas JJ is already ranked after 1 tourney.
