    I'm going with Oliver, Oliver, and Oliver, in no particular order.

    Sorry I'm not picking someone out of left field, but I'd prefer to be right at the end rather than look interesting now.

    In that case: Matt McDonough.

    Ed ruth was a rs freshman who "wasn't consistently dominant"? So that means there were times that he was dominant? He had 2 losses all year. Made lewnes & henrich look bad. He won the gorrian. don't you think it could be possible that in the coming year that could change quite easily from "inconsistently dominant" to "the most dominant wrestler in college"? i think so...imagine if ed had his head in the game all the time...hmm.

    so i will just say that i think before the end of the up coming season ed ruth will "unexpectedly" be in the mix & people will be talking about that he is up for the award....

    if nothing else changes from last year, oliver has to be the favorite at this point. If dt would have stayed at 157 i might have given him the edge save for dake. I can see mcd pulling it out as well as there is no one really to stop him at that weight.

    Also last year when i did a statistical breakdown on the hodge & picked jb based upon what i saw, i was surprised at how russell got little respect. His competition was so clearly above everyone else. All the talk of how marion wuz robbed might put a stain that for some but you cannot count the guy out.

    Btw, how many people had ness 2 years ago on the pre-season hodge pick?

    Maybe not, but it will come down to him and Taylor. At least, by the definition of the award, it should come down to him and Taylor.

    No one was talking Ed for the award in the beginning of the year. I was. Even you Vais said he was NOT a dominant type wrestler & I told you that that would change this year.

    Hey if I can't beat you in fantasy wrestling for THREE years, I have to find somewhere to be right! :P He finished 2nd behind DT. He beat out #3 Dake, #4 Molinaro #5 Simaz & #6 McD (your other choice) so I get half a credit here or at least a harumph....
