Not going to be around too much today as home improvement is calling, but the action is already underway up at the University of Northern Iowa. Live results are getting posted to Intermat.com today, and that is where I will be getting my information each time I get a chance. Mizzou started off with Penn State this morning, and some interesting moves have already been seen from Coach Smith. Keep your eye on this post/thread today, as I will post my updates here.
10:00 a.m. - Mizzou finds itself in a pretty decent hole already this morning to be honst. Troy Dolan went out and lost a decision 12-7 which did not appear to be as close as the score would dictate. At 133, Tyler Crane took the mat instead of Todd Schavrien, and got tech'ed by this opponent 17-2, putting Mizzou down 8-0 early. Marcus Hoehn then did what he has done all season and won his match, an 8-4 decision to put Mizzou on the board 8-3. Then, instead of Andrew Sherry, Brandon Weist took the mat against #2 Bubba Jenkins, and suffered a first round pin, now putting Mizzou down 14-3. Mizzou really needs a win here to stay in this one without having to depend on bonus points later. Chandler is on the mat now with Vallimont and has lost a 3-1 decision, making the score 17-3 halfway through. Mizzou is really going to need some big wins to pull this one out.
