    125 Ness, Escobedo, Falck
    133 Gomez, Kennedy, Slaton...Reiter finishes fourth.
    141 Ruschell, Russell, Rivera...everyone has at least 5 losses.
    149 Metcalf, Schlatter, Jenkins
    157 Vallimont, Poeta, C.P....meat grinder, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6 in the nation are here.
    165 Tannenbaum, Perry, Saf...
    174 Luke, Borschel, Dretsch...
    184 Todd, Pucillo, Kish...one last valiant run by Kish.
    197 Davis, Tamillow, Herbst
    Hwt Bergman, Fox, Massey...the top four or five heavies are making this a more competitive weight then I thought prior to the season beginning. Definite talent here.

    You can add Scott to the front of the list at 141. He only has 3 losses, one against the #2 ranked 149 lber, and has a head to head win against Russell.

    Don't worry about this talk about a wrestle-off with Strayer. In the end, Scott will be the man.

    I know, I know...in the end its a crap shoot anyway...its really about getting as many guys through as you can. Taking home some hardware is a nice icing on the cake and a nice help for NCAA seedings.

    I could be wrong on 50% of these if my past history repeats itself.

    141: Jaggers has beaten all 3 of those guys and is on quite a tear lately
    149: Palmer has beaten two of those guys... this weight should be just as much of a meat grinder as 157
    165: will injury effect Perry's seeding? could he be in same half as tannenbaum?

    Kennedy is a BAD BOY when he comes to wrestle. You are right, I am recanting and putting him in there and taking Reiter out of top three.

    I think Reiter puts himself in a positon still at NCAA's though to AA...he may not seed well but he is a gamer and I can see him doing some damage in wrestle-backs and getting back to a seventh or fifth place bout.

    If he is really back then there is no one at the weight with more experience than him and he could get to the semi's. From there, who knows. I don't remember too many people giving Matt Valenti much chance when he won his first of two NCAA's.

    I think Jaggers is a little like Caldwell. If he's on his game for the right three days in March, I wouldn't be surprised to see him at the top of the podium.

    I hope not. Perry has earned the top seed, I would concede that with no issues.
