    LoSt, It seems unlikely that Dong will rise that high.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Though I suppose I shouldnt be surprised with Jackons prediction since nobody is a bigger fan of Dong than Jackson Burns.

    Finally get the first of these out...

    125

    Preseason
    1. Troy Nickerson (Cornell)
    2. Angel Escobedo (Indiana)
    3. Zach Sanders (Minnesota)
    4. Anthony Robles (Arizona State)
    5. James Nicholson (Old Dominion)
    6. Jarrod Garnett (Virginia Tech)
    7. Nic Bedelyon (Kent State)
    8. Michael Martinez (Wyoming)
    R12. BJ Futrell (Illinois), Brad Pataky (Penn State), Andrew Long (Iowa State), Rollie Peterkin (Penn)

    Mid Season
    1. Troy Nickerson (Cornell)
    2. Angel Escobedo (Indiana)
    3. Zach Sanders (Minnesota)
    4. Matt McDonough (Iowa)
    5. Andrew Long (Iowa State)
    6. Anthony Robles (Arizona State)
    7. James Nicholson (Old Dominion)
    8. Jarrod Garnett (Virginia Tech)
    R12. Michael Martinez (Wyoming), Chris Notte (Oklahoma State), Brad Pataky (Penn State), Eric Morrill (Edinboro)

    While his body of work so far this year (as a result of injuries) doesn't really support my continual placement of him this high I'm picking Nickerson until someone beats him in a match by a method other than injury default. Last person to do that by the way was Paul Donahoe in the 07 NCAA Semi's. Only competition so far this year was the Southern Scuffle where his best win was a 7-0 victory over Ross Gitomer in the semi's.

    Escobedo is a guy who looked very iffy at times last year but has come back this year healthy or at least apparently healthy and wrestling with a vengeance. He dominated his way to the title at Las Vegas with wins there including a fall over Frank Perrelli, a 13-5 major over Jason Lara and a win over Robles in the finals. He also won the Southern Scuffle posting wins over Perrelli again, and a dominant win in the semi's over Zach Sanders. Like Nickerson he has not lost.

    This is the first of several picks I'm assuming that I'm going to take some flak for (putting him over both Iowa boys who have beaten him) but I don't really care. For what its worth I came away from the Long match feeling worse about Sanders' chances as a fan than I did the match with McD. So far this year Sanders has marquee wins over James Nicholson (7-5 in the All Star match), Chris Notte (11-5), Morrill (3-2), Steintrager (5-2), and Triggas (10-3).

    In terms of body of work just this year McD is probably the guy with the best resume at the entire weight class. He's got 3 wins over his instate rival Andrew Long all of which were absolutely fantastic matches to watch as a fan. He's posted majors against Garnett (en route to the Midlands title) and over Notte (last night). He also has wins this year over Kjar and Sanders. He takes a ton of shots and is great at using his length if and when he gets caught underneath he'll just stick an arm out and block the guy from spinning behind, as the guy continues to try the hips will just naturally get closer and then McD almost always finishes. He did this very well in his first match against Long.

    Andrew Long will be the first guy (of several) that I act rather self congratulatory about for putting in my preseason picks as an AA or a Round of 12. I had Long in the Round of 12 primarily as a result of his excellent freestyle season where he beat pretty much everyone he wrestled save for a smoking hot Jordan Oliver. This year in folk he has pins over a redshirting Precin, and another one over Steintrager. He also has wins over Sanders and Triggas. All 3 of his losses so far this year have been to McDonough.

    Robles has come out this year and had another excellent season. He's made the finals in both of the major tournaments that his team has gone to although he has lost them both. 4-2 to Escobedo at Vegas, and 4-3 to Morrill at Reno. He's got two close wins so far over Notte, and a win over Martinez. He's put bonus points up against Jarrod Patterson (17-2 tech), and Triggas (11-1 major). Matches against Robles are always going to depend on whether or not he or his opponent are the ones dictating from neutral.

    Nicholson hasn't wrestled the toughest schedule so far this year but against the non top tier guys that he's been wrestling he has generally dominated them. In his higher level matches he's got wins over Triggas, Perrelli, and Martinez. He also lost to Martinez and he's got a loss from the All Star match against Sanders. Would have loved to have gotten the opportunity to see him in that brutal 125 bracket at the Scuffle.

    I struggled a little bit with who to put in this last spot. The DE guy, or my sleeper that I've been touting since the summer time (Martinez in case you didn't know) I quite obviously wound up deciding to rep my home state for the time being. Garnett has been moving along kind of quietly so far this year. He missed some time early on as a result of a shoulder injury and is still trying to get his feet back under him. He's got two wins over Gitomer, a win over Lara, and a fall over Pataky in the PSU Open finals. Midlands was his first competition back after that lay off for the shoulder injury and that is where he took 3 of his 4 losses so far this year losing to McDonough, Steintrager, and Kjar. He recently took another loss this past weekend to Pataky.
