FINALS NOT INVOLVING IOWA
149: #3 Dylan Ness (Minnesota) vs. #4 Jake Sueflohn (Nebraska)
It behooves us to root for non-Minnesota and non-Penn State wrestlers whenever possible. Even ones from Nebraska.

157: #2 Jason Welch (jNW) vs. #4 James Green (Nebraska)
It's not often I find myself rooting for Northwestern in anything, but against a phenomenal asshole like Green? GO 'CATS. This match has zero impact on the team title race, but Green is a complete dick, so I'm happy to root for him to lose.

165: #1 David Taylor (PSU) vs. #2 Conrad Polz (Illinois)
Like I said, it's prudent to root against PSU and Minny wrestlers whenever possible. Although in case it's probably pointless; just sit back and watch the Unicorn do his thing.

184: #1 Ed Ruth (PSU) vs. #2 Kevin Steinhaus (Minnesota)
What to do in a PSU vs. Minnesota match? It's hard to say, but a Minnesota win is probably less damaging to Iowa's hopes than a Penn State win. This should be one of the most fascinating finals of the day, too.

197: #1 Quentin Wright (PSU) vs. #2 Scott Schiller (Minnesota)
See above, re: who to root for in PSU-Minnesota match-ups.

285: #1 Tony Nelson (Minnesota) vs. #2 Mike McMullan (jNW)
Gadzooks, do we need to root for a second jNW wrestler in these finals? Yes, we probably do. GO 'CATS.
