View Full Version : Kennedy VS Gomez
02-25-2006, 07:15 PM
Since Kennedy has already beaten Precin (one of the best in his time), I am interested in how people think he would fare against wrestlers from an earlier time, namely Joe Gomez. With Kennedy enrolling at U of I in the fall, this great fantasy of a match may, in fact, become reality. How do you guys think it will go next year? Also, how do you think it would go if Jimmy as a high school senior wrestled Joe as a high school senior. Just curious, I think right now Gomez is too strong for Kennedy. However, in both of their respective senior years I think Kennedy's quickness and explosiveness prevail. Let me know what you think.
For the record, Gomez 2x state champ, 1 2nd, 1 3rd (I think); Kennedy 2x state champ, 1 2nd, 1 3rd (I know)

If they wrestled today, Gomez would give Kennedy a pretty good beating. I think that when its all said and done, Kennedy will be a better wrestler in college. But you get a guy with a years experience up there at huff hall, and he becomes one tough SOB

i think that gomez has the better edge since he's been through GBN wrestling with coach hahn which i have experienced being a GBN wrestler

I see Gomez taking over the U of I 125 spot next year.(keep in mind you have kingler there as well.) I see Jimmy getting bigger being a 33/41 pounder. Maybe by the time Flores a soph(i think) Graduates Kennedy could step in there.

gomez is too big for 25... it was proven when he couldnt make weight in the beginning of the year. i think that he would fit well in the 33 spot and flores goes to the 41 spot..

I though he did make the weight till Ott came back ?
02-25-2006, 09:03 PM
no he couldnt make the weight and later on in the season ott decided he was gunna go 25. so gomez needs to deal with flores for a spot in the line-up
