    Stardust,
    Do you think 133 Brandon Gambucci (Duke) has a chance at a wildcard? he is 23 -11 with 2 of those loses as Medical Forfeits.

    it's just so hard to guess, and with only 4 at-large spots at each weight class, I guess it really depends on all the other conferences and what kind of upsets there were.

    For example, last year I really thought Thomas Ferguson from UNC was "deserving" of a spot, but there were too many others in his weight class that were also "deserving"

    I also think Evan Henderson from UNC should be eligible for one, he was 27-9 coming into ACCs, wrestling a pretty tough schedule, but had a rough day yesterday and went 0-2. I don't know how much performance in the qualifier weighs vs the performance of the entire season when the committee is making their decisions.

    I listed those 4 possibilities as the ones that I would predict have the best chance, but you just never know...

    With the impending moves of West Virginia to the Big 12 and Pitt to the Atlantic Coast Conference, Flynn doesn't want to see his Fighting Scots without a home. He also doesn't want to see the EWL, a quirky, relic of a conference that pits Division II schools against BCS behemoths, dissolve.
