    Default d-1 preseason rankings

    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.

    Ed Ruth is the best guy @184 in my mind

    Thorn should be higher than 15th

    Z being ranked 4th at heavyweight is way off, he beat the #1 ranked guy 16-5

    I'd also bet every dollar I have that Oliver would beat Ness

    but hey, what do I know?

    I agree with all of the above. I think the only way Z is ranked #4 is that they're uncertain he can make it through the season without injury.

    Agreed that Ruth is the guy to eat, but you can't just rank him ahead of the returning national champ at that weight.

    Thorn will work his way up, but nobody has seen him wrestle 1 match at 125 so 15 is more than fair.

    Again, can't rank Z any higher considering he hasn't finished the last 2 seasons. No question he's the most talented though.

    I like JO too. Dylan is the highest placing returner at 149 though so he gets the nod.

    Grab a bite to eat Louden.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Oliver's strength has been his great speed. He gonna have it up 2 weight classes?

    Vais--I hope you're not encouraging Louden to eat Ruth!

    I would say yes.

    Nobody knows what weight JO will be at. He's at 133 on the new roster. If he does go 149 it remains to be seen how effective he will be. Do you think McD could jump to 141 and be the #1? If not then why Oliver?
    "He beat nobodies..Thorn at 133 won't be great, R12 or worse imo...
    I just don't see it...David Thorn is not elite. I don't think he'll place"

    One could make the argument that Oliver's resume is so superior to anyone else's at 149 that it trumps any potential disadvantage of going up in weight.
