    Like Gantry said, Kennedy and Boris didn't actually wrestle; Kennedy forfeited pre-match.

    I say Thorn probably gets the 2 seed because because he was the Big 10 runner up. I realize that this is just a matter of when they lost to Russell, but that's the way it worked out and someone has to be ranked higher than the other. However, as I think about it now, I think Thorn's loss to Marion should give Kennedy the edge.

    So basically Kennedy is rewarded for not wrestling Novach?(though he wrestled the entire tournament up to that point)
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    No, not at all. Neither one of them get credit for that match. Kennedy has other high quality wins though: See Marion and Alton. AND he's placed 4th at NCAA's before, if that counts for anything (I don't know if it does or not).


    Boris does not.

    As I mentioned in another post, I think Kennedy is the only guy with a real possibility of knocking off Russell (but I don't think even he will). With the way the Big 10 141 pounders have been at it all year, it's hard to give a #2 seed to Novachkov (sort of like giving Boise St the BCS champsionship game bid--they might have deserved it but didn't have a chance to prove it). But even though I think Kennedy is probably the 2nd best guy, I would give the #2 seed to Thorn, being the Big 10 runner-up. I realize Kennedy's only loss was overtime to Russell, not to Thorn. At any rate it doesn't matter much which of those two is #2 and #3. But that's what I think they should be. Also whether Marion or Novachkov gets #4 or #5 doesn't matter much either.
