    There you have it. I took a lot of high hopes on risky predictions. Crazy stuff will happen at the NCAA's for sure. I say, why not try and predict some of it.

    I don't think Kish is going to get #3 unless Mr. Miagi from Karate Kid is able to get him the oriental cure.

    His injuries are bad and even average wrestlers are going to be able to hang with him.

    Geez I'm a MN homer but no way does Reiter get 2nd. He has been rode like a show pony all year and just doesn't have what it takes to get to second. He will AA but no way does he get to second. I also don't think Kish has a shot at 3rd as it is he may not AA with the injuries.
    The NCAA selection committee just screwed the Gophers on seeding.

    I hope you are entering the pick'em contest!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    It is kinda funny that he lists "creative writing" as an interest. "Creative" is one of many words I could use to describe those predictions.
    I'm JeepCreep, and I approve this message.

    I had a lot of the same response on the "other" board.

    Gopherfan - My head tells me that Reiter will finish around 6th-8th, but my gut feeling and high hopes tell me he's good enough to make the finals this year. I see him making the quarter finals for sure, where he'll most likely have Franklin Gomez. That's a match he is more than capable of winning, but things don't look good on paper. If he loses He'll most likely have either McCormick, Castillo, Grey or Keneddy in the round of 12 match. Upsetting Gomez will be his best bet.

    Being strichtly realistic, with no upset predictions and taking all hope out, I think Varner will either finish 1st or 2nd. However, I don't think anything would make my experience at the NCAA's better than to see Roger Kish upset him in the quarterfinals. Now call me crazy but I think Kish even not at 100% is good enough to beat Edmondson, Chriswell or Kissel and make the quarterfinals. Varner despite getting somehow caught on his back and pinned, will for sure make the quarterfinals. We'll see the match, and it looks as if I'll most likely be wrong. However, I'd sure like it if I was right.



    Zappacy - I didn't mean to have ISU not AA'ing at any other weight, but it just sorta worked out that way when I made my predictions. I see Luke Smith upsetting Clark in the second round. I see Hernandez over Fanthrope, LeClere over Gallick, Schlatter over Mueller, Poeta over Sanderson, Gross or Pitsch over Reader, Browne over Scot, Kish over Varner, Tamillow over Bertolino, and Bergman over Zabriskie. My 133, 165 and 184 are upsets but at all the other weights, Iowa State did indeed get rather tough draws.

    Jeepcreep - I'm going to come back and read my post. You can address me you know? What fun is it to strichtly stay to the seedings and rankings? If you do that, you still walk away disappointed. Upsets and a lot of really weird stuff is going to happen this year. Why not predict some of it?

    Wow, those are some bold picks! I have to agree though, there is no way Kish is going to get third. Especially him beating Varner, I don't see that happening! Did you see his arm at Big 10's?

    133 I see Slaton getting 1st or 2nd, he would have beaten Gomez at Big 10's had he decided to get his offense going before 1:30 left on the clock. I see him and Scott in a close match in the finals.

    157 will be a very interesting weight to watch everything unfold.

    165 will be another nail bitter in the finals, but I think Perry wins in a close one.

    Go Hawks!!!!
