    10 Hwts ? automatically qualify from the big 10 ?
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Be upright and breathing at the end of Big 10's or 12's and you're in.
    Ban--If these numbers are arbitrarily chosen then I can see the logic. But the # of qualifiers is based on the number of highly ranked guys. In that case I don't see how it's any easier qualifying. Getting more qualifiers simply means that you have a lot more tough guys seeking to qualify. I guess a question is how good the guys are that didn't earn a qualifier spot for their conference?

    A 9th or 10th place finish isn't an easy in to you, compared to 1st or 2nd place only finish? The Big 10 isn't THAT tough where you have 9 or 10 beasts at each weight class.

    If the 10th guy in B1Gs can beat the 3rd place guy at PAC's he should get in.

    I would be surprised if the 10th best HWT in the B10 is that much tougher than the 3rd best hwt in the Pac.

    Iowa qualifies 10 imo. Martelloti has a chance but their 41 wont.

    It's not every weight class, but Curran Jacobs of MSU is ranked #18 by intermat and 9th in the big10. There are far fewer "non-beasts" in the starting lineups of big 10 teams than "Beasts", made apparent by the eight big10 teams ranked in the top 20, with lowly Indiana and Purdue at 31 and 35 (on the bubble for 33 man brackets).

    I'd say it would be easier to place second to Nick Purdue in the MAC than to beat Jacobs for 9th in the Big10.
