    Default NCAA Seeding Thoughts

    Rather than start two new threads, I thought I'd consolidate.

    How do you think 184 gets drawn up?

    1. Honeycutt
    2. Hamlin

    Those two seem set. Then maybe...

    3. Rutt
    4. Bosak

    Those two are really critical. Mostly for Bosak. Honeycutt has been the one guy who has really handled him the last two years, and I'll bet he's really hoping to be on the other half. He does have a win over Rutt.

    5. Kevin Steinhaus
    6. Ryan Loder
    7. Joe Leblanc

    Or does Leblanc get higher than that?

    8. Chris Perry
    9. Quentin Wright
    10. Josh Ihnen
    11. Erich Schmidtke
    12. Grant Gambrall or Luke Rebertus

    It will be really interesting to see what they do with Wright.

    Don't forget Kirk Smith in all of this. He's apparently gonna give it a shot. Hard to think he wouldn't earn a seed.

    184 is totally wide open. I don't know what they do with Kirk Smith. His record rates a high side, but realistically with his injury I doubt that he can place. I guess I might give him a low seed based on his season's record and his being a returning finalist. Any name on that list could probably win this weight this year. My seeds wouldn't be too different from yours, Gold and I agree I don't know how they decide on where to put Wright. He could win it all or not even place depending on which guy shows up. I do think, though, that he's starting to get his mind in gear, which is where the battle is for him.

    1. Honeycutt
    2. Hamliin
    3. Rutt
    4. Loder
    5. Bosak
    6. Wright
    7. Perry
    8. Leblanc
    9. Steinhaus
    10. Smith
    11. Ihnen
    12. Gambrell

    If I closed my eyes and did it again I'm sure that I would come up with a different set!!

    I really don't know that Smith should get a seed. I don't know if I think he should qualify, honestly. Schlatter kind of proved that too me last year.

    And Smith's year isn't all that good to begin with anyway--there's just not much there. I guess if I were on the committee I'd want an honest appraisal from Boise State's coaches about his condition.

    I was actually wondering about that earlier. Is the committee allowed to contact coaches to ask about the conditions of injured wrestlers? I hope so, because there are cases every year of guys getting hurt at their conference tourney, which may have cost them an auto-qualifying spot (but will be good in two weeks) - or who got a spot but won't be able to wrestle.

    Why should Rutt keep a #3 seed after losing in Big Tens? Put Bosak at #3, he lost in the last seconds to #2 hamlin. I think Hamlin and Honeycutt are his only losses, right?

    Bosak has only lost to Honeycutt and Hamlin. I would think his head to head win over Rutt would be an important factor but seeding is often hard to predict.
