    They left off for Futrell that he was 6th 2012, but also that he's a senior now. Illinois has a very solid team that could give other teams some trouble. A lot depends on match-ups in terms of dual meets (I know--that goes without saying!). It will be a stretch for them to beat Iowa, Minnesota and PSU, but if they wrestle tOSU it looks interesting with 157-197 all being good match-ups (not to mention 141--Futrell/H Stieber).

    Everyone was talking about what a killer weight class 133 was going to be. But with Oliver, Graf, Carter and Futrell moving up or RS'ing, it won't be as deep as we once thought.

    I'm doubtful that he will go to 125 when it is all said and done, but if Colon went to 125, that would leave yet another big empty slot at 133.

    Caleb Ervin repping Kentucky! John Fahy is probably redshirting since Furtrell is moving up. I think he was looking at being 141 otherwise.

    Hard to believe that Futrell, who finished his HS career at 112 and was way undersized wrestling 125 is now at 141. Talk about a late growth spurt

    If morse would ever live up to his hype and IF Thomas can hold 133 Illinois could be a top 5 team .
    Ban ,
    do you ever get depressed when you see EVERY other team improving save the one you really care about ? in my case IU has 3 kids returning who were above .500 last year .
