    Reader looked very good today, but the absolute housing Ruth put on Lewnes is on another level. I would predict a Reader win, most likely, due to experience and mat skills, but Ruth appears to have improved so dramatically from the beginning of the season and every time he goes out there, who knows? He may be unbeatable by NCAA"s.

    Seems like Mack might have been lacking some confidence early and didn't really attack until he was down a lot.
    Yes!!!

    I've said stuff like this in the past but it has been more or less dismissed by lifelong folkstylers. Glad someone else sees the potential difficulties int he scoring.

    I'll also repeat what I've said about Lewnes before, based on the admittedly limited video I've watched of him his defense just isn't solid enough. Stands up way too high, lets guys in on his legs easily- can get away with it against most guys but not the best of the best.

    That was actually my "gut"sort of feeling but thanks for the feedback. If the top 4 seeds actually meet in the semis it should be the best tandem of matches any weight class has to offer @ NCAAs, though 41 & 49 could line up nicely as well.

    I admire the creative ways you come up with to continue to beat this drum. I can assuredly look forward to more tidbits like this for months, no wait, for years to come....they might prove awesome fodder come March.

    I was surprised to see how easily Reader's head snap worked on Lewnes to get the right leg. And even when Mack countered, Reader kept at it & got him down with a leg sweep. I thought Lewnes would have bounced a little more or thrown a whizzer in or fought hands or something. Reader must have watched film from the Scuffle.
