    Gotta disagree with Earl on a few of these -141 Ciasulli has 3 losses , to 1,4 and 8 and drops to 13th .Thomuseitt doesn't wrestle and drops 4 spots ? the biggest joke is Miller at #5 at 184 . He won 3 matches by a total of 4 points -and he wrestled no ranked guys -if you grow into a weight class that is a different story , but he is the same size he was last week .If Miller was #1 at 174 why isn't Bennett ranked higher ? Kerber has yet to step on the mat and is ranked higher than Young who is 11-0 with wins over 2 ranked guys .
    I don't pay attention to rankings anyway .

    Miller is a returning finalist and undefeated... I dont think #5 is too high at all.
    How many ranked guys has Escobedo wrestled at 125?

    Saying he only won his matches by a few points is like complaining that Marable never pins anyone; thats just the way he wrestles.

    I do agree with you about some guys that are ranked high and havent wrestled though. Brandvold at #6 seems totally ridiculous to me. Earl said that next week people who haven't wrestled will be dropped, so probably no more Kerber/Brandvold/Fanthorpe/Nickerson (at least for the time being)

    hard to get a read on miller I think he's a little small for 184 so #5 might be too high. who knows. he didnt look great at 184. others who moved up had time to grown into it. rankings are going to change alot after this week with so many big events so no point in arguing about them. vegas and some duals will clear up some of the rankings talk.

    I dont really get what "being small" has to do with being ranked..

    Cam Simaz is pretty small for 197, and he definitely isn't the 4th best 197er in the country. But I'm not arguing against him being ranked there, because he's earned it.

    People seem to have this weird idea that rankings are somehow predictions for how guys are going to finish, when thats really not the case at all.

    Didnt Cam lose to Brent Jones last weekend? I'll double check.

    Nope, it was Eric Simaz.

    Ask Ness and Thorn, they know. It took them at least half a season to get used to the new weight classes in my opinion when they came in "undersized".

    Not sure 174 is settled for the season at CMU, if Miller showed anything last year it is that he can come back and beat guys he has lost to before, and maybe he will end up wrestling 174 before it is all said and done. After all the guy has earned some respect both in the CMU wrestling room and on a national level. I think this just speaks volumes of what potential Bennett has as a redshirt freshman. Also, Miller is a very deliberate and cautious wrestler who doesn't beat anyone by much, just beats them.
