    Zanetta probably-colon no as he has been dismissed from the team.
    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 haven't heard one way or another, but I have a feeling that Colon will enter the Midlands unattached. He definitely still wants to wrestle, and this would give him a good test to wrestle some of the best.

    I don't think it is an open in the traditional sense. But, if those guys applied they would probably be allowed to wrestle.

    It seems like the signups closed rather early, as they had a full slate - so unless guys like Colon petitioned well ahead of time they won't be there.

    I'm most concerned with how this impacts the fantasty leagues and the race to the championship. It's compelling for those of us not in a league.

I understand it would mean getting hotel rooms for two nights, but I would guess the cost of Midlands would be the cheapest option for a multiple day tournament available...
    I think that this is more accurate about the Ohio State meet. I believe earlier in the year Brands said something about the close proximity of the Grapple and the Ohio State duals being so close the grind of Midlands was quite a bit to take on. With the holidays and everything bunched in there, I dont blame him for the decision, but it would have been cool to see Iowa go as a team. With Clark, Gilman, Brooks, Meyer, and Dennis going though they will provide quality there. I hope to see a Clark vs Delgado rematch in the tournament as well. That would be worth the price of admission for me at least.
