Upsets and Comments from Other Teams' Fans


Unfortunately, upsets happen, even to the good guys. Letting the # 6 seed have his shot at #3, and so on, is why they have the tournament. And at this level, in a sport like wrestling where one dramatic move can change the outcome - see Vincenzo over I-Mar - the upsets are even more likely than in other sports like basketball - where a big mistake might cost you just 2 points out of 70 total.

The upsets lead to Joey and Gilman (the 1 and 2 seeds) meeting in consis. Epp lost to Hall ... who then won the whole thing. And ZZ's loss by pin was a quick call that many refs might not have made. Sucks. Next year.

And we had our bright upside moments: most notably Sal finishing an outstanding Hokie career as an AA, a good amount above his seeding.

Five AAs and sixth place. Not quite where the team was last year, but still freaking awesome just the same.

Talking with people from other schools at the tournament (including some coaches), they view Tech as a powerful program that isn't going away despite losing Dresser. Can't even count how many people high up in other programs said that Robie is the right man for this job.
