    You can complain about the 5th seed, but I would rather wrestle a WVU team w/o Brandon Rader opposed to Ohio State. Once you win that first match the 4/5's are in the same spot.

    I agree w/ Champ, last year is last year....CMU's is undefeated too

    The seed doesn't matter when MN comes out on top.
    The NCAA selection committee just screwed the Gophers on seeding.

    Of course not. I shouldn't have mentioned last year, but I can understand a little bit of their frustration falling 3-spots in one poll.

    Its kind of ridiculous to fall from #2 to #5 when you havent lost again but it is what it is, we're a strong enough team I think we can beat anyone at national duals and the field is so stacked this year we're going to have to beat at least 2 really good teams no matter what seed we are.

    It's not just that they lost, it's who they lost to and who that team subsequently lost to.

    Since only 1-8 are seeded it makes no difference whether Minnesota was seeded fourth or fifth. And it would be hard to justify a higher seeding than fourth for the Gophers.

    I like the draw.

    what they are really saying though is that Minnesota is #6 since Okie State isn't even there to push them down another spot...i guess I am fine with it since we will have a shot to redeem ourselves here if we truly think we have a beef...

    has there ever been a more feared #5 at natty duals?

    Back in the early 90's, unseeded Penn State took out #3, #2 and #1 to win the tournament.
