    157

    Top Half: I'll be honest with you, top seed is Gregor Gillespie is going to have tough time just making it so Semi's. He's going to have the talented Jason Johnstone, and after he squeaks thru that, he's going to have either Chase Pami, Ryan Hluschak, or Jordan Leen. I foresee Leen making it thru, and upsetting Gillespie in the third round to get to the Semis. On the bottom "half" of the top half(I hope that made sense), I have CP Schlatter wrestling Josh Zupancic. People are sleeping on Zupancic, and I think everyone will pick Marsh as a "surprise" upset. It won't happen, as the returning AA gets the win, but loses to Schlatter for a spot in the Semis. CP will be facing Brandon Becker, who should cruise to the Semis.

    Bottom Half: Vallimont has a cakewalk to the quarters, and should be wrestling Matt Kocher. Kocher will come close to losing to Morningstar of Iowa, but he will prevail. Vallimont will win a closer than expected match against Kocher to get to Semis. On the other "half", Cyler will have tough road to quarters, having to beat Mike Chandler, but he will do it. He will be facing Mike Poeta who has a relatively easy path to quarters. Poeta will beat Cyler in a much easier match then people are expecting, but at least 4 points. Poeta and Vallimont meet again in the Semi's.

    In the Semi's, CP beats Becker AGAIN, and Poeta beats Vallimont AGAIN. CP then beats Poeta in the Finals to "validate" his career with a NCAA championship!

    165

    Top Half: Tannenbaum will walk into the quarters, where he'll meet Roger Smith-Bergsrud who will have upset Tervor Stewart and the talented, but perpetually overranked Moza Fay. Tannenbaum will beat RSB to get to the Semi's. Stephen Dwyer will overcome a tough challenge in Ryan Patrovich, only to be upset in the very next round by the hot wrestling Dave Rella to get to quarters. There, Rella will lose to Mack Lewnes to get to Semi's, Mack having a relatively easy path to Quarters. So we have Mack Lewnes and Eric Tannenbaum in the quarters.

    Bottom Half: I have not read JohnnyThompsonNum1's breakdown, but I imagine he has Pat Pitsch beating Nick Marable...I disagree. Nick Marable will make his way to the quarters where he will face Matt Coughlin who will beat Kurt Gross and Jon Reader back to back to get there. Marable will beat Coughlin to get to Semi's. Mark Perry should walk into quarters's where he will be facing Upset Special Keegan Mueller. Keegan will fall to Perry, allowing Perry to go to Semi's against Marable.

    In Semi's, Mack will give Dr. T a run, but Tannenbaum will go to the Finals (finally) where he will face Mark Perry after another close win over the talented Marable. Perry will then beat the good doctor for his second NCAA championship.

    174

    Top Half: Keith Gavin was given no favors in this bracket. He starts off with the very tough Alex Dolly, and it doesn't let up with Chance Litton. After that, Gavin will meet and beat Gabe Dretsch in the quarters to get to the Semi's. There, he should meet Jay Borschel, provided Borschel avoids the upset from the unseeded Lloyd Rogers in the first round. After that, Borschel should make it to quarters, where he will beat Brandon Sinnott who will have survived a tough test against Nick Hayes, putting Jay to the Semi's against Gavin.

    Bottom Half: Brandon Browne will run to the Quarters, where he will run into Steve Anceravage, fresh off his upset of ALton Lucas. Lucas keeps his matches too close. Steve A. of Cornell upsets Browne and goes to the Semi's. Matt Stolpinski will make it to quarters, including a 1 point win over the talented Mike Letts. There, Stolpinski will face Steve Luke. Luke, much like his "almost surnamesake" Alton Lucas, keeps his matches too close, resulting in Stolpinski making it to Semi's to face Steve Anceravage.

    In Semi's, Keith Gavin will beat BOrschel, although the match will be closer score wise...Borschel won't really be close to winning, though. Gavin will be wrestling against Matt Stolpinski, with Gavin winning the title.

    184

    Top Half: Jake Varner should bore his way to the quarters, where he will face Brent Chriswell. Chriswell will upset the unfortunately injured Roger Kish. Varner should beat Chriswell to make his way to the Semi's. In the other quarter, Josh Weitzel should be battling it out with Christian Sinnott. Sinnott will survive a tough test against Trevor Brandvold, only to fall to Josh Weitzel, pushing Weitzel into the Semi's against Jake Varner.

    Bottom Half: Tyrel Todd should be in the quarters after Todd survives a serious upset bid from Vince Jones. Todd will be facing Raymond Jordan, who will have a tough win over Rocco Caponi. Jordan will pull the upset on Todd, putting Jordan into the Semi's. Jordan will be fighting for a spot in the Finals with Mike Pucillo. Pucillo will have a relatively easy path, with his toughest match being against Kirk Smith, who will upset Phil Keddy. Our other Semifinal is Raymond Jordan vs. Mike Pucillo.

    In the first Semi, Varner will win a match that is close, but he will never be in any real danger. In the FInals, Varner will be battling Mike Pucillo who will have won a tough, tough match against Ray Jordan. Pucillo will battle, and come close to gettng the deciding takedown. Varner will fight him off to get into Overtime rideout, where Varner will ride Pucillo out for the title.

    197

    Top Half: Josh Glenn should walk to the quarters, where he will be facing off with Craig Brester. Brester will fight Glenn to the end, even getting backpoints, but Glenn will comeback in the third period for the win, sending Glenn into the Semi's. There, he will face off with a man looking for redemption in Max Askren. Askren will avenge his early season loss to Rovelli of Hofstra, and then beat Wynn Michalak, who will barely survive an upset bid from Matt Koz. Glenn vs. Askren is our first Semi.

    Bottom Half: Mike Tamillow should make it to the quarters, although he will have to overcome the underrated David Bertolino. He will do so, but in the quarters, he will meet up with Dallas Herbst. Herbst has a pretty easy path to the quarters, and Herbst will beat Tamillow to make the Semi's. In the bottom "half" of this half, despite JT#1's hopes (once again, making an assumption), Joel Flaggert will not make it out. He will lose to Hudson Taylor. Taylor will face off with the buzzsaw that is Phil Davis. Davis vs. Herbst is our other Semi.

    In the first Semi, I have Askren upsetting Glenn to make the Finals, where he will also upset Phil Davis to win an NCAA title.

    HWT

    Top Half: Dustin Fox is set up to walk into the Quarters, where he will meet up with the shockingly underseeded Bubba Gritter. Fox will bully his way into the Semi's, but Gritter will give him a run for his money. There, Fox will meet Matt Fields, who should walk into a Quarter match with John Wise, who will upset Jared Rosholt and Mark Ellis. Fields will beat Wise, making our first Semi Fox vs. Fields.

    Bottom Half: Third seed Ed Pendergrast will fall victim in his first match up to an upset from Jon May. May will then lose to Kyle Massey in the quarters to make the Semifinals. Massey will be battling J.D. Bergman in the Semi's, after Bergman beats Dave Zabriskie (and avoids losing in the first round finally!). Our other Semi is Kyle Massey vs. J.D. Bergman.

    In the first Semi, try as he might, Fields can't overcome Fox, giving Fox another win over FIelds. J.D. will beat Massey, giving us Fox vs. Bergman again. THIS time, Bergman figures Fox out and gets the win for his NCAA title.

    hey those were SUPPOSED to be crazy! and I actually did fairly well on them for the most part, the only one I can think of where I was dead wrong was RSB going 0-2 when he almost upset perry in the semis.

    I'm just messing with you, bro. I think that Palmer and P-Tax are open to upsets (for different reasons), and Jaregui, though disappointing, is pretty good. I'm not predicting him to beat Schlatter or Metcalf or anything.

    Ok so 8 #1 seeds, 1 #2 seed and reaching all the way down to a #4 seed for your final champ. Way to go out on a limb Chrir33. Will Metcalf beat Schlatter 6-2?
    The NCAA selection committee just screwed the Gophers on seeding.
