    Especially considering Smith smacked Arand around their two meetings this year.

    Caldwell is great, that's a given. But all this talk of him majoring Dake? He wasn't able to major guys like Zac Cibula (10-7), Nick Stabile (7-3) or Jamal Parks (3-1) this year.

    gobigred, I get where youre coming from, valid point. BUT that was a long time ago that those matches happened compared to now and the NCAA tournament. Just what it seems to me, Caldwell shines at the NCAA's.

    Dake hasn't exactly been a slouch at the NCAA tournament himself.

    I didn't see him there so I was giving it the benefit of the doubt as he has 3 weeks. But it's that bad then I think that match up will be good.

    84 really lost a lot of it's luster with all the pre season hype and then lots of the guys fizzling out/getting injured, etc.

    184 really looks like a pretty uninteresting weight if you ask me.

    If by uninteresting you mean wide open and pretty competitive then I would agree with you.

    141 is wide open and competitive.

    184 lacks the star power. Rutt, Leblanc, Hamlin, Honeycutt doesn't really do it for me. Not many interesting match ups.
