    Default Alton sitting pretty

    #6 seed....Russell, Marion and Kennedy on top half

    Novachkov quarterfinal with a Thorn Semi. Not bad...
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Kennedy would have been way better off with the #6 seed than the #4 seed. Guy is the Rodney Dangerfield of wrestling this year, his seeds have been brutal.

    You could say that Alton is sitting pretty, or got a gift. the bottom half is certainly the half that you want to be on.

    Part of the problem with Kennedy is misinformation - just like on the TDR show people were saying "he's 17-4" and "he lost to Novachkov" yet I don't think he has any losses besides to the 2 to Russell. Do Medical Forefits where you don't step on the mat typically count on your record? His scorebook page on the NWCA site seems screwed up, it show him with two losses to himself. Seriously, I think somehow his official record somehow counts a loss to himself.

    Am I crazy here? Even if the loss to Novachkov counts where is his 4th loss?

    No Gantry, it doesn't count as a loss on your record if you don't take the mat. I don't know where 17-4 comes from.

    Either way Gantry Kennedy, Marion and Russell got the shaft this year. I don't know how they do the seeds, but either way I truly think they need to reevaluate at some weights. To put those three on the same side then Alton and then only have Nov. and Thorn I mean that's not an EASY draw but compared to having Marion and Russell on your side that is EASY this year at this weight, just my opinion but this years seeds for 141 were a little off of what they should have been to put on the best show for the finals.

    With this draw Alton could conceivably get to the semis.
