    Nicerson will be struggling with weight at this point. It's later in the season I anticipate a Nicerson-Escobedo final.

    Zapp has a good point about the weight cut possibly affecting Nickerson this early in the year at 25. I'm glad to see Nickerson back wrestling again as I've always liked him.

    Said it several times already and I'll say it again, I can't wait for Slaton v. Ness. I think Ness matches up very, very well with him and I think he takes it here.

    Jaggers v. Gallick will be a nice little style contrast, Jaggers with the funk and Gallick with the straight forward stuff ala his brother. His last two years Nate lost a grand total of once, it'll be interesting to see if Nick can replicate things.

    Metcalf is an obvious favorite over Jenkins. I'll be interested to see what Bubba has done this summer to try and close the gap on him. I will say I'm impressed that we haven't seen any "Bubba sucks!" posts in this thread yet.

    Leen wrestled an absolutely ridiculous tournament last year, it'll be interesting to see how he deals with being the hunted one this year.

    I think Marable beats Lewnes, he's just too hard to score on.

    I think Borschel beats Luke and establishes himself as the guy to beat at this weight early.

    84 is going to be a straight up brawl. I think Pucillo wins a close one much like both their matches last year. That is if they don't start punching each other in the face during the match.

    Be interesting to see if Varner can employ the brickwall strategy at 97 like he did at 84 and how being out-brickwalled by Pucillo in the finals last year affects his style if at all.

    I'll probably root for Massey at heavy, but he's got a tough task in beating Rosholt who just keeps steadily improving. He impressed me when he started turning things around on Zabriskie last year.

    I thought about Nickersons weight but, with the exception of Falck vs Escobedo. He hasn't faired all that well in big matches.

    Falck did beat Donahoe last year too to kick off the National Duals final, but thats another good point.

    My prediction is that at least three or four of the wrestlers currently listed will end up begging out for one reason or another (as seems to happen more each year). That said, as it stands now,

    Nickerson, Slaton, Gallick, Metcalf, Poeta, Marable, Luke, Pucillo, Varner, Rosholt

    I forgot about the match with D-hoe. I really want Charlie to win. I just need him to believe it. I could see Iowa going 5-0, I think 3-2 is more likely.
