    Delgado, too. He's the only guy who beat McDonough, and he gave him hell the other two times they met, too.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    If Morse ever lives up to his potential i can see 7 AA's in that line up with Delgado,Futrell and Blanton top 3-4 .

    174 does project to be rather weak next year, but I'm not seeing Blanton winning a title ever. He is average by AA standards

    I think lofthouse, Storely, and Perry will all be better then him next year
    Gold is an idiot.

    I'm not saying they wont do well, I could definitely see them having 5 AAs or so, I just don't think they have the horsepower to do anything better then 4th at best

    They have no one who I would favor in the pre-season to win a title, compare that to MN, Iowa, PSU, Cornell, all of which have multiple returning finalists and at least 1 returning champ

    Don't forget Matt Brown of PSU at 174.

    Blanton is right there with everyone left next season. I'm not saying he'll win it but those guys have all beaten each other at this point and he placed 4th ahead of most of the names given. Took perry to 2ot, placed before etc etc.

    Again, not saying he's my pick to win but he's certainly a contender.
