      Idk if you’re making a joke but on the off chance that you’re not, cenzo beat Alex in the dual this year. That’s why it’s seeded that way

    Man these guy are so good and a razor thin margin between the two! I cant wait to see these to at nationals.

    Might be the best match of the year. Marinelli reminds me of the prototypical Iowa wrestler. Tough as nails.

      JEFF RICE 2 months ago

      Marinelli came out of his mama's belly wearing a singlet and headgear. And already knew the half nelson and double leg.

    I've been saying that Cenzo is the better wrestler and is better able to make more about wrestling skills than a battle of upper body strength, but I'm not so sure. It seems that Marinelli is the one dictating the action; it's been like that in their last three matches. Bar the first two periods during their first meeting, Cenzo has never looked in control.

    Funny thing is if it wasn’t for blood time and Alex getting a breather he wouldn’t have had the gas

    • Corn Prices
      Corn Prices 2 months ago

      @William Balentine because he made a mistake and paid for it? My point is that if Marinelli was as gassed as you're saying, and Joseph was still fresh, how come he lost? Joseph didn't make a mistake in any position, he got straight taken down

    • William Balentine

    We will see if Alex doesn’t choke in ncaa like he did last year , they both choked but damn is Alex gonna make the finals ?

    • Patrick O'Rourke
      Patrick O'Rourke 2 months ago

      @Kort Latimore This perception you have about this discussion says much more about you than Alex Marinelli. There is no better or worse discussion, just facts. He lost to the National Champion who beat everybody and he happened to be a freshman. Explain to me that this is worse and compared to what? Explain to me how losing in the quarters to the champion is worse than losinig in the finals to the champion? You didn't win, that's all that matters. "better" or "worse" regarding this loss is irrelevent. Your obsession with talking down a guy with two noteworthy titles that included beating the #1 guy each time and having two All-American campaigns in 2 years on the mat in college is simply your problem.

    • Kort Latimore
      Kort Latimore 2 months ago

      The Discussion that’s even worse... he lost in the quarters as a number one seed against a true freshmen who wasn’t even seen as a match up..

    • Kort Latimore

      Ryan Mercier thank you for having a brain in your head

      Ryan Mercier actually, it was the quarter finals that Lewis took Alex out in.

    • Ryan Mercier
      Ryan Mercier 2 months ago +2

      Patrick O'Rourke no I don’t think he choked against mekhi but he lost in the semis and ended up getting 8th after being the 1 seed

  • Victor
    Victor 2 months ago +2

    Shane Griffith is undefeated so would that mean he’s the first seed and this is a potential semi finals match 😳

    • Patrick O'Rourke
      Patrick O'Rourke 2 months ago +4

      He's good and maybe even the best, but his strength of schedule doesn't warrant moving over either of these two.

    • Patrick O'Rourke
      Patrick O'Rourke 2 months ago

      @Andy Gadd Agreed, of course that is the case. Using this public "acclaim" to talk down the career of an accomplished wrestler is my issue.

    • Andy Gadd
      Andy Gadd 2 months ago +1

      @Patrick O'Rourke Traditionally it's the big stages that garner the most acclaim.

    • Patrick O'Rourke
      Patrick O'Rourke 2 months ago

      @Andy Gadd So a two time Big Ten champion and two time All-American does not warrant respect. OK, I get it. Cenzo is all there is at 165, even though he's 3 out of 4 to this guy. Get a grip.

    • Andy Gadd
      Andy Gadd 2 months ago +1

      B10 champ, just a little bit. All American is memorable. National champ is golden.

    • Patrick O'Rourke
      Patrick O'Rourke 2 months ago +3

      @Kort Latimore I completely disagree. People say that all the time. It's a badge of honor round here. Spencer Lee was so rabid about winning this year because he was 0-2. You don't need to try and arbitrarily diminish the accomplishment of beating such a great opponent, just because it is a Big Ten title. Sorry Kort, this title matters a lot and your weak dismissive is about you, not the title that Joseph will never win.

  • You’ve Seen This Guy Before

    But will he get it done at NCAA’s? I think not Cenzo all the way.

    I wouldn't call Marinelli a smart wrestler... he get counter thrown literally 100% of the time he picks that fight with joseph. he was milliseconds from losing badly.....again...

    • Patrick O'Rourke
      Patrick O'Rourke 2 months ago +1

      "Literally 100% of the time.." that's funny. Where you been, Mike?

    • Wrestling Ref
      Wrestling Ref 2 months ago +6

      Some obvious partisanship here. Mike Ferster, have you even watched all four of their matches? Marinelli won the first two by taking Joseph straight to his back out of that position. Then Joseph turned the tables at the duel earlier this season by getting the throw and a 6 point move. Even then, at the end of the second period, Marinelli nearly got them all back by returning the favor. Watch the match. Joseph earned that win, but Marinelli earned this one. It's a great rivalry. But seriously, finn bell, your comment is ridiculous. Unless you want to say that "all brawn but no brain" somehow managed to beat a very good, smart wrestler in Vincenzo Joseph.

      @D B Did you actually watch any of those NCAA tourney matches? Of course, you know the freshman he lost to last year beat Joseph by twice the amount and won the title, but that doesn't matter for your "prediction," I guess. Alex Marinella is a two time Big Ten Champion and it is a tournament Vincenzo Joseph was in 4 times and could not win once. This is not saying anything against Joseph. Isaiah Martinez and Marinelli are worthy. You just don't seem to think so.

      He was the aggressor for the last minute. I'm amazed he didn't get at least a warning. I'm also amazed this means Cenzo will finish up his career with Zero Big 10 titles.
