    Also, Steven Bell had the second easiest road to AA. Ryan Williams from ODU had the easiest road to AA and it was to the finals.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Not to put words into Terp's mouth but I believe he was saying that in his match against Gallick last year in the consis, Krom had just lost in the championship semis and that was a hurdle that he (Krom) had to overcome, turning right around after a loss like that and wrestling in the cons semis. He was still reeling mentally from that loss and therefore possibly not 100% mentally into the match with Gallick. (at least that's the way I interpreted his comment).

    I like Krom's chances this year, last year he was one of the most improved wrestlers I saw as far as his consistency. Add to that the confidence of making it to the semis last year and I think he could have a great year. He might just be my favorite ACC wrestler this season.

    I see. I actually would agree with that. Happens all the time in H.S. and NCAAs. Get your mind thinking finals, then all you can get is 3rd? Brutal for some to come back from that. Still don't think he's better than Gallick, but it is a good point.

    141 in the ACC is no joke this year -Diaz .Krom ,Nelson ,Rappo and I thought the N.C. State kid was out of eligibility but he is listed .

    It was tough last year too and going into the season I thought it would be a toss-up, given consistency issues that Krom and Ramirez had the year before. But it ended up being Krom on another level and then everyone else battling it out for 2nd.

    I love how the Minnesota homers are forgetting the shellacking Sanders took from Robles at the NCAAs last year. The ref stopped the match for no reason and gave Sanders a chance. If he would not have done that, Robles would have tech falled him.

    Ohhh how our minds are clouded with nothing but maroon and gold tint.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    I love how you are forgetting that Sanders beat Robles very decisively earlier in the year, and that robles is, at least to a certain extent, a one trick pony.
    Gold is an idiot.
