    I dont know about Jake Herbert being wrestler of the year. According to stats Brent has more pins than Herbert and not one close match.
    Maybe he got it being a Senior

    They seem to like to spread things out in terms of awards.

    Ness' freshman year when he went pin/pin/12-1 over Falck and won freshman of the year they wound up giving OW to Herbert who I don't think got bonus points the entire weekend.

    Then Konrad I think was Wrestler of the Year.

    Sorry, but that is just stupid. Be honest in every award, not just distribute evenly. I mean, who has had a better year than metcalf? Nobody. So give him the award. Who had the best tournament? Metcalf. So give him the award! They should vote for wrestler of the year BEFORE the tournament begins.

    I think we should build a golden altar for Metcalf, and let him wrestle upon it because he is clearly the finest wrestler in all the land! Bring him all the finest wines and cheeses! No other wrestlers accomplishments should be honored, especially not a senior who has been a huge part in reenergizing a Northwestern program, and who has a future at the Olympic level. Nah, let's be myopic and only honor Metcalf.

    ? Or you could relax?

    I didn't see the award being called "Best program re-energizer" or "neatest future olympian"(Who took a year off to place what at the trials?)

    Please tell me how Herbert has had a better/more impressive/more dominant year than Metcalf? Just show me one statistic or area where he has been more impressive? Seriously, for every stat that herbert might have an edge over metcalf, Metcalf would have several better than him.

    Metcalf has a weak weight class. (Okay, just watch the crap fly NOW!)

    Is he that great or is his competition weak? He tech's Caldwell and pins Bubba Jenkins. Guess its hard to say because those guys haven't had better success at other weights.

    I say give it to Herbert, who cares. Metcalf would have to reinforce his mantle anyway for all the hardware he is going to pick-up. Can't wait for that 4th National Championship...oh wait, he can't get one. Oops.
