    *Henrich isn't up on the NWCA site yet, but Eazee has posted it on his site at D1CW and he's generally very good with this kind of stuff.

    Post will be edited as the line ups change.
    125-Sanders is probably more grown into this weight and will be able to beat Robles.
    133-Dennis will beat Bell who had the easiest path to AA I've seen in awhile. Please don't hurt me terp
    141-Gallick should win too.(I'm changing my identity to hide from Terp now)
    149-Metcalf(Unless there is a Maryland wrestler entered)
    157-Jordan Burroughhs. Moley is a brave man for volunteering for a beating that doesn't even count.
    165-Reader should win, He's in the upper echelon of 65 lbers and I dont think Rendos is.
    174-Mack Lewnes...oh wait...I have no idea, if they ask Borshcel I think he'll beat Heinrich, if the ask Miller, I think Miller wins.
    184-Eh, This is one that could go lots of different directions and wouldnt be surprisng. I think Askren wins...unless he gets pinned, lol
    197-Varner, and I will hate it.
    285-Big Z owns Ellis for whatever reason..So I'll go with him.

    I predict Sanders will come out with a very humble handshake...other than that I have learned not to do All-Star predictions. I am pretty sure I was about 5 out of 10 last year on my picks. And although Burroughs is a stud, Moley seems to hold his own at this weight class against stud appointments, I think its a decision. Didn't Moley beat Gregor Gillespie last year?

    I'm pretty sure they had wrestled like 4 times and Gregor had won easily all matches except for the one GG lost. Moley lost to Saf, Kinser and Hall by 4 last year, didnt' do that great against top knotch guys really.

    If you take it back to the year before, I think Gregor had beat him something like 8 times in a row before Moley pulled off the upset.

    Gillespie had beaten him like nine or ten times in a row over the last two or three years before Moley knocked him off in the EWL finals last year.

    Okay, so which match do people remember? I remember the last one. I think people consider Moley a tad "soft" where I consider him a tremendous overachiever. He's like Gabriel Dretsch except he keeps getting better.

    125 --Sanders did not grow enough as Robles looks like a 157 lber , upper body wise , if Sanders can get out from under and steal a takedown he wins , but with Robles' style and stance I don't see that happening -Robles dec. 8-1 .
    133 -Dennis will push Bell around for the whole match and win 2-1 .
    141-Galllick seems to always find a way to put up a coupla points when needed -Gallick 3-1
    149-Metcalf
    157 -Moley finally beat Gillespie after 500 bouts but can't see him beating Burroughs-Burroughs maj.12-3
    165 -I'm going to pick Rendos just because Bucknell didn't have a program 3-4 years ago . Rendos dec.4-3
    174 - Trevor Perry headlocks the ref and demands a victory -
    184 -In a bizarre match Patterson locks in a near side cradle and pins Askren -the refs over turn it as the match had not yet started . A riot ensues .
    197 -a week later they drag Varner out to beat Brester 3-2
    285 -In a rematch of last years Big 12 finals -ZZZZZ WBD-5-3

    No way Robles beats Sanders 8-1. Sanders is the only kid I know that starts the season well conditioned and I hope to god he got his schooling on those Robles tilts last year. I see this one very tight and going to Sanders. Yes, I AM a homer.
