    Yes. It's not clear at all to me how the criteria are weighted so they can pretty much do whatever the F they want to do.

    I thought that all of them made sense until Metcalf. I thought that #1 was being undefeated and he got pinned. Made no sense to me at all.
    The Art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.

    Right you are! And none of the 3 by less than 6 points! Camp seems to be having a sophomore slump this year (based on more than just those 3 losses).

    Ruth deserves it yet Dake will get it if he wins.
    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 think he will also have a junior and senior slump. Doesn't seem like there has been much progression. If you don't let him hit that inside trip, he isn't going to score. With the way Burak has started to wrestle that win keeps looking less and less like a fluke to me.

    JO has let me down every year when I predicted either his possible NCAA Championship, Hodge, or best "pound for pound" chances, etc. With the lack of hard cutting, this year seems different. He is an animal and I see him lighting everybody up that is in his path.

    I won't argue with Dake winning IF he gets past DT again... but my money is on JO. (OK, it's a figure of speech, my lack of gambling success precludes actual betting.)

    Note - although we've discussed it a bunch, I'll repeat myself. Hodge = Dominance. The winner is not necessarily the best wrestler, the guy with the best record, the guy with the most pins, and most importantly not any specific formula that combines these statistics. A lot of people struggle with that. But, simply put, it's the most "dominant" wrestler. By its very nature, it's somewhat vague, it's going to be subjective and not all of us will agree.
