    So as things have gone on it seems like people see and understand the reason for Megaludis getting the seed, they just disagree with it?

    I think that's correct. I would have seeded Nico 4th

    He may get seeded fourth. These are just PRE seeds.

    Delgado's out of conference record is way better than Megaludis'. Two wins over Patterson by fall and a win over Perelli, who beat MEgaludis twice. Megaludis doesn't have an out-of-conference win as good as any of those, let alone three.

    I'm not saying Megaludis can't beat Delgado head to head, but their bodies of work this year strongly warrant Delgado being seeded over him. There is no strong argument for Megaludis being seeded above him.

    I agree, and I think almost all PSU fans agree. But, we would like to see them go head-to-head, and may get that opportunity!

    Seeding meetings are pretty ugly (oxymoron) -I've seen grown men come to blows at the high school level .Ill reserve judgement until the actual seeds come out . IMO, They'll always have to work it out on the mat anyway.
    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.

    It's interesting looking at the pre-seeds for 2 highly ranked teams--Ill (#5 TOM, #17 Intermat) and tOSU (#8 TOM, #7t Intermat). Ill only has 2 wrestlers pre-seeded in the top 4 (a 3rd and a 4th--even if you give Delgado a 3rd, that only makes 2 3rd seeds); and tOSU also only has 2 seeded in the top 4 (a 1st and a 2nd). That's amazing for 2 teams ranked so high to have so few wrestlers pre-seeded in the top 4 in the B1G's. It reflects how strong the conference is and also shows how Ill seems to be a much stronger dual team than tournament team. tOSU does have a lot of 5th seeds.

    Zapp--you're right about the comparative non-conference wins. NM's best are #11 Snyder and #15 Zanetta.
