Thread: Most Impressive weight Class

    Default Most Impressive weight Class

    Not sure how exactly if thats the best way to put it. Most competitive, toughest, whatever. Which one is better?

    I don't think it's really fair to judge them as is. We need to let the rest of this 165 lb. class develop some. Comparing the mostly fleshed out 149 lb. class to the still time to develop 165 lb. class isn't really fair. Right now, you'd have to favor 149.

    Let the record reflect that these are the two weights in question as they spawned the debate:

    149 Pounds, at this time in 2007:
    Dustin Schlatter (2x AA, NCAA Champ)
    Josh Churella (2x AA)
    Ryan Lang (2x AA)
    JP Oconnor (AA)
    Lance Palmer (AA)
    Brent Metcalf
    Bubba Jenkins
    Darrion Caldwell
    Jordan Burroughs
    Jake Patacsil

    165 a month ago:
    Dustin Schlatter (3x AA, NCAA Champ)
    Jarrod King (NCAA Champ)
    Nick Marable (2x AA)
    Jon Reader (2x AA)
    Andrew Howe (AA)
    Ryan Morningstar (AA)
    Dan Vallimont (AA)
    Andy Rendos (AA)
    Colt Sponseller
    Alex Meade

    Agreed that this is a bit premature, but I just want to see what people think at this point.

    The is a bit of what I was getting at.

    At the time, 149 looked quite formidable, and it looks even more so now that we've watched Metcalf, Caldwell, Burroughs, etc. develop into the beasts that they have become.

    If you just compare the two weight classes at the time of competition, however, I think 165 a month ago (and even now that Schlatter has gone) looks pretty freaking tough.

    I think someone brought it up on a previous poll, but why aren't some allowed to vote?

    Sounds like a question for Schlottke. You should be able to vote.
