    Robles is undefeated and thus far he's wrestled a tougher schedule (as I illustrated on a previous page), what don't you see?

    I think Robles will get the number 1 seed but ill tell you if precin gets mcd in the b10's i think it should (but wont) go to him. If precin wins it would be 2 out of 3 with the returning national champ and the last match between robles, precin did win. its a tough situation tho, what I will be on the look out for if robles does get the 1 seed is who can get the number 4 spot

    Robles has wrestled 1 person in the current top 5 (Sanders and he won by TF 20-5) and that is it. He has wrestled 3 ranked from 6-10. He also has only 1 person ranked at Pac-10's (#6 Mango)

    Mcd has wrestled #3 Precin 2 times (1-1) and possibly wrestling for a 3rd time at Big 10's. He will wrestle #5 Sanders this week and possibly again at Big 10's.

    Like I said if McD wins Big 10's I think he get the nod as 1 seed. I think the case can be made he has more quality wins than Robles does. If McD doesn't win big 10's than Robles gets the nod with Precin being 2. Also like I said he is the returning NCAA champ which plays into the equation as well. I don't see how wrestling Precin (who was #1 until McD beat him) 3 times and winning 2 out of 3 (if he beats him at Big 10's) and beating Sanders once and possibly twice doesn't have more value than Robles beating Sanders once.

    I think after Big 10's McD will have more quality wins than Robles if he wins the title. Robles has only beat 1 person in the top 5 and doesn't have a chance to beat anyone in the top 5 until NCAA's.

    Isn't there set seeding criteria? Or is it just up to coaches polls/opinions?
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I am pretty sure there is a set criteria. I know that pervious finish at the tourny is taken into account. I tried to find the criteria but didn't have any luck.

    If you think it can be made, then make it.

    Assuming Robles beats Mango and McD beats Sanders I've got it 8-4 Robles (in terms of quality wins) heading into their respective conference tournaments.

    If McD beat Precin for the 2nd time and beats Sanders again he has more wins against top 5 than Robles. Robles has only wrestled Sanders in top 5 and both McD and Robles have already beaten Mango this year. I think everyone will agree at 125 there are the top 3 and then everyone else. Beating the #1, #3 and #5 wrestler gets you more quality than beating #5.

    I was trying to find the criteria as well. Looking at the handbook the only thing mentioned is that that committee looks at the wrestlers records as shown on the "individual season record forms," but I agree it seems there's a lot more to it. Just wish I could find it posted somewhere.
