    Why was Dylan Alton 11th? He should be 4th or 5th. That's pretty bizarre. He outplaced everyone but Stieber, Ness and Megaludis and had a pretty consistent year.

    Hunter I can somewhat understand since 141 was very very tough. 149 was very weak and Dyland still outplaced Cam at a tougher weight.

    I had the same thought about Dylan. Even though Hunter placed lower than Dylan, his giving Russell his only defeat in the past 2 years is very impressive. I don't have a problem with Hunter being #4. But D Alton only lost 2 matches in the post-season--both to national runner-up DSJ by close scores. Down at #11 seems awfully low for that kind of a record (including avenging his loss to Welch). He also beat twice the guy that was one place below him (Green). It's not a big deal, but seems very surprising.

    Man, if only I could count the times I've used that line.

    I read a lot of people saying what is or what is not a tough weight class. What does that mean? Since I quoted you, VA, what does it mean to you specifically? Anyone else can jump in with comments on what it means too. I am just curious. The way I perceive people's thoughts are that it isn't a tough weight class if there is a guy who will obviously win it. Like Gorilla Hulk. If that is the criteria, then I can understand.

    I think a weight class can be very tough, maybe the toughest in the country, even though one dude is superior. It takes a lot of wrestlers to fill out an NCAA bracket. Getting second is not easy, even if everyone knows you're not going to win in the finals. I personally think Tessari outwrestled himself during the tournament and beat guys he probably shouldn't have. He beat the 3-seed, VonOhlen. Alton also beat a 3-seed. Does it make it a tougher weight class because the 3-seed actually made it to the 3rd place match or is it tougher because he couldn't get there? Alton was a 7-seed and placed 4 spots higher. Tessari was a 10-seed and placed 6 spots higher. Which is tougher to do? And call me crazy, but didn't Tessari pin the dude who placed 2nd, earlier in the season?
