    Hush now, I'll graduate at age 21. Not exactly out of the norm

    Is it just because we haven't given people time to establish themselves yet?

    I think the answer to this question is definitely yes. I'd wait until at least after the holiday tournaments before I'd worry about a lack of talent from the unproven younger guys. There's always a couple of surprises coming out of RS or true freshman who step up and demonstrate their potential. Plus the guys who've toiled in the room for a couple of years, just waiting for their chance, e.g. Dennis last year.

    A lot of the younger guys in these rooms will turns some heads so I wouldn't call the big ten particularly weak, then again I do believe overall, the level of parity is becoming much greater. The big ten however does have returning national champions at 125,133,149,157 or 165 whichever Schlatter chooses,and 184 with other finalist coming back at 141 and 197 so I wouldn't count out the big boy conference just yet. I am however excited to see the next few years unfold as it will apparently be anyone's team race to win. You still have to think it'll come down to two big 12 schools or two big ten school Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Iowa, and Penn State and hopefully the Buckeyes can sneak in there

    I think that LoSt has a point. We may be seeing a shift in power, depending on how the next couple of years go. Obviously, Minnesota, Okla. St., and Penn St. are stacked with talent for the next 4 years. We also have some teams like Maryland, V Tech, OD, and Edinboro who are improving steadily. My belief is that coaching will win over talent, if the talent is not too lopsided, and the best coaches will find ways to win and attract talent.

    But then again, I give LoSt too much credit: I thought he was using the (mispelled) French spelling of "futur" on purpose, so what do I know? (Pretty snazzy for a 21-year old middle school student!)

    B10 doesnt have a finalist returning at 197.

    Every single one of the guys you listed graduates this coming year. I think the only finalist who will return (barring whoever might make the finals this year) is Howe

    Brainpause on the 97's, but what does the guys graduating have to do with this upcoming year? Your comment states that the conference looks weak "this year"
