    Marable is definitely the front runner at this weight class nationally, but I just don't see him as invincible as he is being billed by most.

    However, I'm also not 100% sold on Lewnes either.

    Speaking of dark horses in this weight class, my money's on Fay. I called him to be a national champ when he was a freshman.

    My ego demands that I'm right!

    I know they split last year and the match that Fay won could have gone either way. It was a great match and fay ended up being ahead when time ran out. (If I remember correctly) I just like Readers style better. I think he will come out on fire this year now that he has a year of experience under his belt. I hope Fay finishes second behind Morningstar at nationals because I have him on my fantasy team but in my heart I think Reader is a better wrestler.

    Marable, Fay, Reader, Mason - this weight will be won "on the mat". Reversals, back points and riding time are the key elements. I like Moza's chances as well as anyone's.

    Disagree. Unless Fay and Reader have improved enough to take Marable down, he'll win every time. Not much danger of Mason having the offense from neutral to beat Marable.

    It is if marable cant take him down either, because mason is a HAMMER on top. I would favor marable over mason but I think styalistically Brandon might be the biggest challenge for marable.

    Also Ban Basketball, Lewnes is the best thing since sliced bread he'll win a title this year
    Gold is an idiot.

    Fay sure had his way with him in Missouri a couple of years ago. He can take him down.

    And, I also forgot about this victory over Marable in the same year.

    HUH!? If it's the same guy that wrestles at 165 for Cornell, no, sorry.

    Granted, I only saw him last year at the National Duals and a little at nationals last year, but he ain't no Fay or Marable. He was far from impressive to me...

    ...and certainly no Metcalf, if we're using the sliced bread analogy.

    Impressive. Any footage of Fay dominating Marable as schoolboys? Marable wasn't even in the starting line-up that year, since then he's improved a little bit. Enough in fact to whip Fay by the largest margin of victory he had in any of his last 10-12 matches or so. Fay is the first person all year Marable managed to get riding time on. I like Fay and hope he does real well this year.
