Under rated and over rated teams.

Recommended Posts

This is not a thread to disparage a team or push a favorite. It is not a ranking thread. It’s what teams that caught your eye that you did notice or thought they were stronger or weaker than they showed at the duals.

i will start by saying DB was under the Radar and Bradley was a bit stronger than thought to be.

Pigeon Forge showed its metal again.

Blackman was the most overated from what everyone was saying about them. Would be in the finals if they was on the other side of the  bracket. Got spanked by Cleveland and Bradley. Wasn't even close. Bradley is better than what most thinks or what they showed against Wilson. Believe Bradley wins 2 out of 3 against Wilson. Independence showed a good team.

Bradley is good but just matchup poorly with Cleveland.  In the spots where a team might be able to get some points on Cleveland they weren’t able to do so.  At 100% Cleveland is going to win 106, 120, 126, 152 and 220 against almost every other public school and usually with pins or bonus points. That is hard to overcome.  Then 113, 160 and 170 will typically win and with bonus points.  After that you have good guys at 132, 145, and 182 who generally win and don’t give up bonus points when they lose.  Because of injury at 138, youth at 195 and inexperience at HWT those are really the only weights to try to get bonus point.  But even on one leg 138 can keep matches close and 195 wins a lot of matches as well.

Oh, i know Bradley is no matchup for Cleveland. I do think they're better than what they showed against cleveland. The first matchup anyways. I was just stating that Bradley is a lot better than what most thinks. Right line up, they beat Wilson. Bradley is a coin toss team this year. Just never know what team will show up and want to wrestle.

To me Bradley did better than I initially expected. Blackman did worse than I expected. I also thought Wilson Central would put up more of a fight in the finals but Cleveland started at a good weight and I think just had way too much momentum by the time they got to some of the weights Wilson central were comfortable at.

I agree. I think Bradley wrestled better at state than they did during the season.

eh...from what i saw, most had blackman third best..they ended up fourth. i wouldn’t call that overrated. maybe a few had higher expectations but i think most knew they were around third or fourth best in AAA.

id say Indy, Dobyns, Clarksville, and even Houston overachieved (underrated) while science hill, oakland, and arlington underachieved (overrated)

I agree.  They are very good.  Love their light weights including the backups.  Lots of talent and great kids.

Science Hill by far the most overrated. They have the most points returning from the state tournament year over year. I was impressed with Clarksville and the kids they have and the way they competed.
