Best chance would likely be at Robertson at 184 if he really pulls it together, based on depth at that weight.

I think Evan Wick has potential to be great, but top 3 will likely require a couple injuries when you have Joseph, Martinez, Massa, and Marinelli at 165.  That weight will be stacked.

I think that RR will place no higher than 5th. Returning at 84 is Nickal,Martin,Parker,and Gravina. All of which I feel will beat him. And the 65 pound Wick has it even harder, but is a better wrestler. He has the obvious 3, but he will have to get past Wanzek,Campbell,Hughes,and Gunther. He could possibly place 7th, but I think more realistic is 9th. The best chance the Badgers have a top 3 placer is at heavy! Snyder and Nevills only remain as top Big 10 guys. There may be some other unprovens, but that's the Badgers best chance. Maybe 125 if Suriano has to sit a year since he is transferring to Rutgers.

Pretty sure Coon comes back off redshirt this season at HWT and Abounader comes back at 184.  Abounader was in the finals of the Big Ten in 2015 and took a redshirt year.

Evan 9th is a joke. This will be a bit of a down year for the Badgers with lots of underclassmen. I think Crone has a chance to place high. He had some very good wins this year.

And we're not beating Stoll if he's healthy this year.

165 has Joseph, Martinez, Massa, Marstetter, and Marinelli.  Those 5, if healthy, will be extremely tough.  That doesn't even include Walsh, Rodgers, McFadden, and Womack who are former AA's.  Wick did beat McFadden recently in freestyle. 

I would be curious to know how Wick does against Jordan in the room before I would feel confident about him becoming an AA next year with how tough that weight is going to be.

I think we place similarly to last year at Big Tens because of the fact that we will have a lot of 4th-9th placers. At NCAAs I think we will qualify every spot minus maybe 133 depending on who the starter is. I also think win more matches as a team, but score less because we won't as high of placers.

I don't see us making up 28.5 lost points from the loss of our 2 studs. I see us as a bottom 4 team.

So last year we had a disappointment at the Big Ten Tourney and tied for 8th with only 5 placers. We beat Michigan State, Maryland, Indiana, Purdue, and Northwestern. We beat those teams by 29 points or more. Who do you see catching us?

In 2016 Purdue had the #6 ranked recruiting class and their coaches are going into there 3rd season together so i am looking for them to improve there status in the Big 10. Hopefully a couple of the WI boys wrestling for the Boilermakers will have a great Big 10 showing this year.

I cannot see any scenario where we drop lower than 9th in the Big Ten Tournament.
Some of those teams below us are flat out bad.  The vast majority of the guys on the team
should finish around 7th or 8th in their weight group with maybe two guys in the 4th or 5th place range.
