    Thorn said the plan was for him to go to 25. He was at the same place we were having pops. Chop asked him. Can't remember where Zilverburg said he was going but Chop asked him too. Maybe he'll come around and tell us.

    A 215-220 weight class is long over due. Wilps will stay at 197 and ZTHOMS will go HWT. MTHOMS will be back at 184.

    IF Colon goes 125 he'll be in the hunt.
    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.

    I figured that was probably where the info was from. Thanks for posting though. Cool couple of stories, haha.

    I highly doubt Morrison bumps up to 133 him and Ladd Rupp are both slightly shorter then me and unless he lifts like a freaking monster he would be way to undersized. Now Oliver finally bumping I can see and we have a couple kids who could fill in at 133. I think the original plan was for Oliver to bump up to 141 and Ormsbee was going to come out of redshirt and be the starting 133, but we all know what happened there.

    Zilverburg didn't overwhelm me this year. Kind of surprised me really that he went 0-2 at B1Gs. Can Keough beat him out from the get go?

    Official:

    Guesses:

    Minnesota - Both Dardanes up a weight, Thorn in at 133, Ness to 157
    OSU - Oliver to 141, Morrison to 133
    PSU - Megaludis to 133, their stud recruit (Gubilion?) at 125
    A couple studs at 184 to 197 to get away from Wright
    Dake stays at 157, finally found a weight where he's not a monster
    Dake's still a monster.

    Morrison looked so much better in tournaments than duals, it is obvious he is struggling with weight.

    Apparently on his radio show John acted like if JO goes up, which I think he is intent on, Kindig will have to go up to because there is no one to fill in at 149.

    I think Perry will stay down. If Taylor stays down and Ruth goes up, which seems like the plan, he has a good shot at a title. Also, he is a better wrestler at 174.

    I never really expected him to be "overwhelming" I'd be happy with "not a hole" which I think he can manage.

    Perry said in an interview with Flo this weekend that its his plan to stay down at 174 as its not difficult to make. I also agree that he's the favorite at the weight especially if he's ever able to track down his sweep single that he used to kill guys with in freestyle matches.
