In the interest of talking about another team other than the gophers...
The allstar classic made me think of something. Mike Tamillow started for the Wildcats as a freshman at 184, his season ended much like Franklin Gomez's did at the Big Tens, not making it to the big dance. He had a more than respectable season all things considering.
The following year, he was back at 184 because Matt Delguyd was a senior and I believe a 4 year starter at 197. I feel like Tamillow was cutting a lot of weight to stay at 184 for the good of the team and would probably benefitted heavily from a redshirt year if for no other reason than to not have to make that weight. (he wrestled well at 211 in Freestyle, winning the university championships I'm pretty sure)
My question is, looking at the success Mike had at 197 last year, does anyone think that Delguyd's presence held Tamillow back from becomeing at least a 3 time all american? Or should the Senior been allowed to keep his weight class. Keep in mind, I don't know what their competition in the room was like and I'm aware of the rediculous cutting Herbert was doing during that time period as well.
