    Well...

    With nine All Americans for the Hawkeyes, Herkey and Chop should both approve of these predictions at any rate.

    Pami 2nd and Hall no aa. my my my

    Jon reader is your champ?

    You DEFINITELY took some gambles but i think many of them will not come to fruition.

    This is coming from a guy who put montell marion in the finals though so take it with a grain of salt.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I actually kind of like the Pami pick and would have considered doing it myself were Schlatter not in the bottom bracket.

    Even though Hall is my fantasy guy, Pami beat him when it counted last year and he'll have the Mark Perry effect in his corner.

    There are times when Jon Reader looks extremely impressive, but he has problems wrestling at that level consistently.

    QUESTION: I don't know what to do about the pigtail consolation bouts in my brackets. The situation in question is this: I have Hashimoto losing to Bailey in the pigtail, and then facing VonOhlen in the consolation pigtail. Who does Hashimoto face in the consolation first round?
