    Do we really know that Herk? We haven't seen him "mean" since the ncaa semis 2 years ago. Since then he was fat and happy, dead on the mat w/ fanthorpe, m.i.a. and stealin ear plugs. It's hard to say exactly what we'll have w/ Joe this time around but I will say if he comes back as he was he will be a legit contender as well.

    I said, "TROLL like" kind of like when your girlfriend is being a bitch. You aren't saying she's a bitch, you say she is ACTING like a bitch.

    He's a threat, admit it, then we can move on.

    So what's your opinion?

    lol.. hes a potential aa... a threat to ruin someone elses chance at the title, depending upon seeding, but too hit-and-miss to be considered a title threat at this point... win the big tens, change a lot of minds.

    I think even if he places second at Big Tens and then goes in to the NCAA's with a Top 4 seed, he's already changed some minds. At this point if he faced Hump, Dake, Bailey, Parks, I like his chances the most against Dake. Zapp's probably right, I got a little bit defensive but I don't know how you can't take him as a bit of a threat. I guess he has more to prove first.

    Just watched the Thorn-Archuleta match on BTN. I actually think Thorn looked really solid again, just made a couple of mistakes at the end of regulation, taking an ill advised bad shot. Then, not being ready for a quick shot in OT. Archuleta is a goer but Thorn controlled most of the match, just needs to do a better job managing a close match. Is he a championship contender at this point? Probably not but I think he is top 5-6.
