    So with Andrew taking a RS what would their lineup look like? Who all are they losing (Pataky, Frank, Q?)?

    Taylor vs Howe is very difficult for me to visualize right now. I will have to think about that match up for a while.

    While I am thinking of it, moving Taylor up looks like it opens up a spot for D. Alton. So, where does everyone go from there? 141-AA, 149-DA, leaving Molinaro at 157? Could that possibly work?
    If Taylor goes up to 165, another scenario is 149-Molinaro; 157-Vollrath (his normal weight) 165-Taylor. I'm not sure who would be better at 157--Vollrath or D Alton. Dylan has looked good in open tournaments, but he hasn't looked like he is quite up to his brother so far. Vollrath has made amazing improvement over the last year, so he or Dylan could go either way IMO.

    Q is just a RS soph.

    And once again my ignorance becomes glaringly obvious. Thanks for the correction.

    I am not sure, but I think Andrew Alton is going to redshirt next year. Here is what I think makes sense:

    125 Martelloti/Megaludis winner; loser redshirts
    133 Long
    141 Sherlock
    149 Molinaro/D Alton
    157 Molinaro/D Alton
    165 D Taylor
    174 Cowburn
    184 Ruth
    197 Wright (McIntosh Redshirt
    285 Wade

    Just my thoughts...

    Will Martelloti for sure be able to wrestle? He's not much for book learnin' it would seem.

    So how do you think it will shake out when McIntosh comes off RS? Will Ruth go back down to 74?

    Not sure. It's possible Ruth never goes up if he doesn't want to. It'd be pretty tough to go up to 184 one year, and cut down the next back to 74. Mcintosh might be the more likely guy to go down, but that's pure conjecture on my part.

    That is what I was thinking, I can't imagine a guy going from 74, to 84 in one season and then back down to 74 the next. I guess Miller did something like that, going clear down to 65. Morgan is wrestling 89 now isn't he?
