Yep Tom. I actually think that Streebler still gets the #1 seed, with Ramos, Conaway, and Graff going 2, 3, and 4. The head to head win by Conaway over Graff should get him the 3 seed. But, if it doesnt and Ramos and Graff wrestle in the semis thats fine as well. I know both Ramos and Streebler dont care who they wrestle. To win, you have to beat the best guys anyways. I hope they do actually wrestle though, personally I have Ramos by 3 points or more against Graff.
To be honest, I don't think gassing was an issue in that match. I think he got frustrated with the head control (beating) that Long started putting on late in the second period, and Graff's own lack of ability to score from his feet after that. Graff looked good getting out from bottom 30 seconds into the third, and still looked pretty fresh as he backed away from Long for the rest of the period. He looked like he was just trying to finish the match and salvage the win rather than really gassing out. Once it went to OT, it was more of the same, though I think his frustration at letting the match get away made it look like he was tired.
I do think he ran out of gas against Conaway (aka Whatshisname), but I think the situation was similar - he was up and just trying to hold on to the win. I think his issue is more frustration at not scoring late rather than gas tank. Given his technical skill, especially on his feet, it makes sense that he looks like he is struggling with gas when he can't score. I would not anticipate him having energy problems if he were down 7-6 in the third. I bet if he still feels he can score, he'll still look good.
Graf took a RS, then wrestled 2 years in the B1G as an elite 133-then an Oly red and STILL cannot mat wrestle one bit better than when he first arrived at wiscy.
Wait, a year of freestyle training didn't improve his mat wrestling??
Tom IIRC Conaway only has lost 2 times in the Big. He lost to Ramos and Streebler correct? Graff has 1 loss in the Big to Conaway and hasn't face either guy Conaway lost to. So to say Graff has a better Big record is a stretch in my opinion. If Graff had faced Ramos and Streebler and lost would you still say Graff has a better Big record? I will be shocked if Conaway isn't seeded ahead of Graff at Big 10's. H2H is actually the 1st criteria IIRC when seeding which Conaway owns.
