    I would have normally said no way on Trice until I see that he has knocked off some pretty solid competition. Zabriskie, Bradley, Lane, Berhow, Jack and Anspach. He should definitely be in the AA group.

    I'm not big on Tyler Nauman of Pitt, and I can't see him AAing. I would throw Bailey, Drouin, or Diaz in there to replace Nauman.

    149...
    Looks really good. Chamberlain or Levalley captures the final spot in my eyes.

    Mid Season
    1. JP O'Connor (Harvard)
    2. Steve Fittery (American)
    3. Cyler Sanderson (Penn State)
    4. Matt Moley (Bloomsburg)
    5. Adam Hall (Boise State)
    6. Thomas Scotton (North Carolina)
    7. Chase Pami (Cal-Poly)
    8. Jesse Dong (Virginia Tech)
    R12. Bryce Saddoris (Navy), Steve Brown (Central Michigan), Kurt Kinser (Indiana), Neil Erisman (Oklahoma State)

    I've been predicting JPO as the runner up to Burroughs since the summer time, and with Burroughs now out for the rest of the year I've seen nothing to dissuade me from believing him to be the best guy at the weight now. He doesn't put up a ton of points but he never really has over the course of his career and its carried him to a career where he was one win away last year from being a 3x AA. So far this year he is undefeated with wins over Sanders, Doing, Pami, Hall, and Bonilla-Bowman.

    If you want to talk about most out of nowhere guy for this season so far your answer will probably be Steve Fittery or another guy who I'll get to later in these predictions. He's got big wins through out the season and in getting these big wins he's put up big scores in the process. He has wins by major over Dong, Gonsor, and Davis. He has a 17-1 tech fall over Kinser, a fall over Patacsil in the Midlands finals and then wins over Brown and Saddoris. So far his only loss is a one point match to Scotton.

    I said one of the biggest benefits of Sanderson's move to Penn State would be that it would keep him far away from Jordan Burroughs. Given the injury that Burroughs suffered this year that factor has become less important. Sanderson however has looked good so far this year. He's got wins over Bilodeau, Moley, Saddoris, Hall, Shuster, Erisman, and Vernon. He's got an 8-2 loss to O'Connor from earlier in the year in a match that he was utterly dominated in and its that match that is really excluding him from being in the finals here in these predictions. He's also lost a match to Dong.

    Coming into the year I said that another AA finish by Moley would result in him being one of the quietest 3x AA's of all time and thus far this year we haven't seen anything by Moley that would indicate that he isn't on his way to earning this honor. His rival (Gregor Gillespie) from the past two years has graduated so he hasn't faced the stiffest of competition so far. He's got wins over Gonsor and Reiner (16-4 major) and then he has losses to Sanderson and Kinser. In his matches this year it seems to me as though he's putting more points up than he has in the past. That should help him against higher level opponents once he meets up with them.

    Adam Hall has done an impressive job transforming over the last few years from a guy who had a pretty finesse style to one who has a very pounding heavy on the head style and so far this year he's continued to make that newer style work for him. He's got wins this year over Davis (17-5), Saddoris, Scotton, and Reiner. His only losses so far have been one point matches that he's dropped in the finals of both the Las Vegas and Reno tournaments.

    Scotton is another one of the guys who have emerged as premier competitors this year after having been really off the radar in the past. He's a big strong 157 and he's relatively well rounded. His reshots are among the better ones in the country. So far this year he has two wins over Saddoris and then individual wins over Dong, Fittery, Bilodeau (major), Pami, Erisman, and Kinser. He's got a bad 9-0 loss by major to Kyle John but then his other two losses are respectable having dropped close matches to Hall and Dong.

    Pami is a guy so far this year who has wrestled really well in duals but then not quite as well in tournaments. Thus far this year he's got a 14-2 win over Vernon (along with another closer win), two wins over Erisman and a win over Saddoris. He's also lost to Saddoris, and then he also has losses to O'Connor, Scotton, and then a kind of iffy loss nearly being majored by Gaethje. He won two big matches last year over Adam Hall during the later part of the year and it should tell us a lot about what we may or may not see at the end of the year when we see these two lock up during their dual meet and at Pac10's.

    Dong rounds out the list as yet another guy who has kind of emerged from being under the radar into a strong AA candidate here halfway through the season. Last year he was kind of overshadowed by the results of his teammate Peter Yates who had a big season down at 149 but this year its been Dong who has shined while Yates has been troubled by injuries. So far this year he has a couple of wins over Saddoris, and wins over Vernone, Sanderson, Shuster, Scotton, and Gonsor. He took a beatdown to Fittery, and then he's also lost matches to Scotton and O'Connor.

    I for some reason still think that C.P. Schlatter should be in these rankings. LOL.

    Keegan Davis cut down to 157 this year and has looked great . The only question I have is WHY ? I thought at first it was to make room for the Okie transfer-then he lost the starting job to Brascetta -so with his only comp at 165 being Armusthaqui and Cuthberson -I have to ask why again .157 Has been Pami's for 2 years and Hall made a god run last year.

    I dont know if he also got beat out for the spot, but my understanding is that Smith, the OU transfer, is injured and done for the year
    Gold is an idiot.

    Then why stat there at 157 ? Davis is making a pretty big pull to make weight and he was their most improved wrestler -He took Brasceta's spot -won over 30 at 165 last year -well see this week when he wrestles Pami .

    I'm embarrassed to say that while I consider myself a huge follower of college wrestling, I don't think I heard of either Scotton or Fittery until December 2009.
