    125: #2 Troy Nickerson v. #3 Charlie Falck
    133: #1 Joey Slaton v. #2 Jayson Ness
    141: #1 J. Jaggers v. #2 Nick Gallick
    149: #1 Brent Metcalf v. #2 Bubba Jenkins
    157: #1 Jordan Leen v. #2 Mike Poeta
    165: #1 Nick Marable v. #2 Mack Lewnes
    174: #1 Steve Luke v. #2 Jay Borschel
    184: #1 Mike Pucillo v. #3 Phil Keddy
    197: #1 Jake Varner v. #2 Hudson Taylor- Maryland
    285: #1 Jared Rosholt v. #3 Kyle Massey

    Note: Hudson is the first Maryland wrestler since 1969 to compete in the All Star meet. Gobel Kline beat Rick Mihal (Iowa) 4-2 at 152 lbs in 1969 when the All Star meet took place after the NCAA Championships. Hudson is just the second Terp to ever compete in the meet.

    Nobody has mentioned that Cornell has three wrestlers scheduled to compete

    Ok I'll try to make some educated decisions here, while trying to not be a complete Iowa homer.

    125-Falck- While I think all things considered Troy is a better wrestler and will place higher at NCAA's, I am of the opinion that it will take a while to knock the rust off. Falck is a tough match up for him and i think he wins THIS match.
    133-Slaton-I'm really not trying to be an Iowa Homer here, but i'm having difficulty picking ness after the bump up. Slatons bruising style might create problems for ness to score on his feet. Also, Slaton should be up and out before ness sneaks that devastating half in.
    141-Jaggers-after watching this guy all NCAA's, i really can't pick anyone else. his defense is great, Gallick is a bruiser, but for right now i think jaggers is still the man.
    149-Metcalf-He's the best D1 wrestler now, and Jenkins is not going to be able to hang with him. I don't think having Perry in the room is an advantage in this case for Jenkins, and i dont see bubba getting a good ride going on Brent.
    157-Poeta-This guy might be on a rampage all year long after losing in the finals. I think he's better than leen, so he should win, right?
    165-Marable-I really don't see him challenged this year...he was the 2nd best 165 last year IMO. He is next to impossible to takedown. With out a mildly questionable takedown call last year he could be the defending NCAA champ.
    174-Borschel-He was the 2nd best 174 last year, the 1st best graduated. He should beat Luke
    184-Keddy-Ok I just made it an Iowa sweep, hopefully i don't completely look like an idiot. Keddy was 15 seconds from beating this cat last year. I think he finishes the match this year.
    197-Taylor-He will get a takedown, and Varner won't be able to stall this one away IMO.
    285-Rosholt-More weapons, better athlete, higher caliber.

    Ok, i failed at avoiding being a homer, but I attempted to justify at least!

    That's pretty interesting, how long was the All Star Classic after the NCAAs? A quick jaunt to wrestlingstats shows that this was a rematch of the finals, also won by Kline.

    Come on Gantry, I expected more for 'ya! You looked at Jay Hammond's site but didn't see that he includes the DATES of the All Star Meets! Looks like the first 6 years or so: http://www.wrestlingstats.com/NWCA/P...%20Classic.pdf
