    Neither of these are particularly bold statements. I think Iowa is the favorite to win Big 10s. Thorn has as good of a chance as anyone next year at 141, but it will be a stacked weight class.

    I'll throw my signature in the ring again, though David will probably be facing some very stiff competition.

    I'll refrain from making an Ohio State predictions right now because what I hope their lineup looks like and what I think it will look like are very different things, and I don't know which one to base my predictions off of.

    Here are a couple predictions I think are bold:
    1) Kent State will finish in the Top 10 at next year's NCAA tournament.
    2) David Taylor wins the first of 4 NCAA titles.
    3) At least one freshman will win an NCAA title. Obviously I already have this covered with my David Taylor pick, but I'm going to go ahead right now and dub 2010-2011 the "Year of the Freshman." Taylor, Perry, and Stieber all have finals potential. Ruth, Villalonga, Grajales, David Thorn, Ramos, St. John, and a few others have varying levels of AA potential. It's a very deep class.
    4) Ohio State will land the nation's top recruiting class (OK, that's not bold at all at this point).

    When I think of a couple more, I'll post them.

    Oregon State finishes in the top 10.
    No more Pac 10 wrestling teams are cut.

    This is a two-parter, since I haven't seen their schedule yet. Whichever one applies:

    1. If Rutgers goes to National Duals, they will place.
    2. If Rutgers does not go to National Duals, by the end of the season, we will be wondering why Rutgers did not go to National Duals.

    I probably shouldn't have said "favorite" as if it's some consensus, but their roster should be very good albeit young. They might not have the experience to have many champs, but I think most of their starters are probably capable of going far into the tournament and they will have a champ or two. Minnesota is probably the only team that has a good shot at out doing them, and I guess they are probably the true favorites. Wisconsin gets an honorable mention, but might end up placing higher at NCAAs than they do at Big 10s..

    Okie State will win NCAA's next year with 3 champs and 7 AA's. Oliver, Parks, Meade, Benefiel, Perry, Foster, and Gelogaev. Actually, I think White will AA also, but I didn't want to get TOO crazy!. Since I'm really a MIZZOU fan I will add Z. Toal to Gold's FR AA list. And K. Bradley too @ 141/149.
