    Bluestater, welcome back from your hiatus. That being said I was just saying that at tournaments where he usually has to make weight on two consecutive days and/or wrestle multiple matches, he seems to lose his dominance although I guess that can be said for most.

    Secondly, where he has had a chance to be featured (last year at All-Star Classic) with some time off, he has looked tremendous.

    Welcome back. Tigers are looking tough early other than Dolan at 125. The big question is "where is Primus"?

    I think blue's point is that having a problem at tourneys is a big problem because the NCAA championship is a tourney. So, no matter how good he is throughout the dual season, etc., it won't matter come championship time.

    Thanks! I'm hoping I can spend a little more time here now that my semester is coming to a close and I won't be spending so much time reading for class. Plus, it's wrestling season. Huzzah!!!

    I think 133 is going to be an absolute dogfight this year. Slaton, Ness, King Lou, Fanthorpe, my non-Tiger favorite Jimmy, er, James Kennedy. It's going to be fun.

    And I really wish my Tigers could find a solution for 125. It's always an issue. And Primus, well, I have no idea.

    Yes, I got that from her as well. I just also brought it up as the Lindenwood wrestler would not necessarily be considered a legitimate AA threat in D1 either so it makes it even more conspicuous that he is dropping some of these tournament matches early in the season.

    Reiter looked the same way last year until about the mid point of the season.

    While handing out bout sheets, I called out "King Lou!" Don't know if his opponent appreciated it, but oh well. Didn't get to see that match, I was watching Jordan Oliver destroy his guy.

    Rug is a stud who is probably only going to get competition from DC and Jayson Ness for total falls this year, I think he'll figure things out.

    i know Ray presonally and u shouldnt over look him, he is one of the best wrestlers to come out of that South Dade program in South FLA winning 3 state titles, he then went on to win a NJCAA national title, took second the next yr. Then he went on to win the NAIA title and this yr has a good shot to win it again!!!! so this kid has the skills to come up with wins like this

    anyone that can beat King Lou is a good wrestler. not sure that three state titles out of south florida, njcaa and an NAIA title automatically makes him a candidate to AA in Division 1. that's all i am saying and I am pretty familiar with the wrestling in Florida.

    Ray beat#2 d3 nick nothern this year also. Not d1 but notable for sure.
    A straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position. A straw man argument can be a successful rhetorical technique (that is, it may succeed in persuading people) but it carries little or no real evidential weight, because the opponent's actual argument has not been refuted.
