    I am not going to say the sky is falling yet for a guy like Schlatter...he lost a couple of matches last year that he shouldn't have but if you look at his body of work, you can't honestly look at it and say he hasn't lost to some pretty damn good wrestlers. 6-4 to Burroughs, who I think will be a finalist at 157 is nothing to hang your head about.

    Schlatter will have no excuses though next year which is great. The year off will allow the knee to totally heal, he can work on his offense and he can get his grades and head right for next year. It will be put up time for him next year. I for one think he has it in him to back on top of the podium.

    Yeah, I was going to say a loss to Burroughs who is cutting eight fewer pounds than he has been the last two years that drops his career record against him to "only" 3-1 isn't exactly something thats going to end the world.

    And in terms of him being "less offensive" I think its the opposite. He was going after Burroughs trying to get a score and then ran into those two doubles.

    It will be interesting to see if Metcalf is up to 157 yet next year.

    Metcalf wants to be a 66 kg Olympian, I doubt we see him go up there.

    Burroughs got robbed on his first td too.. two very poor calls imo.

    Dustin looks very solid and well sized at 157 but he just doesnt seem to have that killer instinct anymore... you could hear the coaches yelling at him to take shots the entire match but other then like two good shrug attempts and a counter shot I dont think he took one the entire match.

    As a fan its really a shame to see but I guess it is what it is, I'm not going to speculate on whether its injuries or just something in his head but he looks about the same as he has the last two years, hopefully this year off is what he needs to return to form.

    Gotta give burroughs credit though, that guy is a horse. I dont know if he'll win this year but Im calling him as 157 champ in 2010 barring an injury or something like that

    I think Dustin must just be done with wrestling mentally. I have no insight on which to base that statement, but that's how it seems to me...
