    It's pretty striking how much of a changing of the guard we'll see this year, in almost every weight class. Names that we've seen at the top for the past few years have finally moved on. I wonder if that means that we may see some damage done by freshmen and sophomores this year?

    I said the same thing last year, but I really like 149 in terms of competitiveness. There will be some outstanding matches there this year. Everyone from 1 through 8 is fairly capable of beating anyone else.

    I usually care very little about heavyweight, but this is the first year where I can say that I care nothing at all.

    Okie St at #2? Their young guys are going to have to be better than advertised to make it to #2. I still think they are a year away.

    Lehigh not in the top 25.

    Their alums won't stand for that for very long.

    Wow, I didn't even notice that. When is the last time they were out of the top 25?

    That's pretty inexcusable, given the fact that they are in the heart of a great wrestling state. Have the academic standards had an effect lately? I'm just wondering - I don't know why things have gone downhill for them.

    There is no way Glenn is a Junior. He has been to NCAAs 3 times.

    Good thread, but I'm tired. I'll hit this up tomorrow with my thoughts.

    Default Re: Pre-season rankings

    Team: Top two are about as expected. Little surprised to see Michigan up at #3 but they brought back their four big horses, and their other guys should develop as well. Much as I hate to say it, #8 is awful low for Iowa

    125: Nothing really revolutionary there, just the way they finished in order of returning. Pretty deep weight, a lot of really tough young guys there. Is anyone going to pick Donahoe to repeat?

    133: Not quite as deep as it has been the last few years, but Scott, McCormick, and a healthy Reiter is a good core for the weight. Little surprised to see Lou Rugg all the way up at #7, not that he hasn't earned it or anything. He's a tough kid. Gomez moving up isn't altogether unexpected either. Hopefully he manages to put it all together the whole year this year

    141: Looks like a really tough weight with the returnees, as well as Strayer, Frey, Preston, and Headlee all moving up. Lang will be the favorite. Hope to hell Rivera manages to stay healthy all year

    149: I'd have been pissed if they didn't have Dustin #1 here, they do, so I'm happy. Tough weight with a bunch of tough young guys. Interested to see how improved Palmer, and O'Connor are from last year.

    157: Can't wait to see how Gillespie does up a weight. Really stacked top 5, with a slight drop off afterward, but a pretty deep weight none the less.

    165: Be shocked if anyone challenges Perry, and Tann here. No where near as deep as in recent years.

    174: This looks like it'll be a wild one, no real established "top" guy. Reminds me a lot of 184 two years ago. My guesses here would be Mason or Luke, Gavin as a returning finalist will obviously be tough as well.

    184: Pretty deep, quality weight. I think Kish and Varner are a slight step above the other guys, but Pucillo, Todd, Caputo, a bigger, stronger, more mature David Craig and others will make this weight tough. I'm sure all are thanking their lucky stars that Herbert is redshirting though.

    197: A step down from what was last year in my opinion the toughest weight, but still a very strong weight, maybe the toughest again, we'll have to see. That top 10 is a tough group.

    285: Does the lack of his name on this list mean Anspach didn't get his 6th year? I don't know what to say here, no one has really established themselves as a prohibitive favorite. Favor Fox and Watterson early on as the prohibitive favorites I guess, be interesting to see if Fields steps it up in his final year. Improvement in the Big 12 boys Z, and Rosholt will be interesting to watch. I think Nord AA's here.

    Team wise, I'll take 9) Iowa, 10) Mizz, and 14) Illinois over 3) Michigan, 4) OSU and 5) Nebraska.

    I understand why, but Metcalf at 7?? The sad thing is, Metcalf won't get a shot at most of the guys ahead of him until the dual season starts. 49 is going to be very entertaining this year!!!

    Yes Jensen, Anspach didn't get a 6th year.
