    Sunny Day! #1 Seeds Failing to AA

    I decided to put a negative spin on all the sleeper talk. Will it happen? If so, who? If not, how about a #2 seed or your highest seeded non AA? My opinion is it's most likely to happen at 141 to Mendes#1 or Griffin#2. Not because I think they are overrated, but because the top 10 or 12 is so close to eachother. Thoughts?

    Normally, it's Seniors who's teams aren't in the podium race that have a surprising non-AA finish. Under those crcumstances and going by my own perceptions, possible candidates are: Coleman Scott, Chad Mendes, Nate Morgan, Josh Churella, CP Schlatter, Mark Perry, Eric Tannenbaum, Phil Davis, and Josh Glenn are the possibilities that jump out at me. I'm not saying any of these guys WILL miss AA, but most of them have had mental lapses, and with the exception of Perry, they've happened at Nationals.

    Hahahaha, thats the idea...

    In all seriousness I was obviously kidding. Just wanted to see how quickly, and how hostile the response would be.

    Of course, we don't really have any Metcalf crazies over here. Chrir was for a while, but he's dialed things down.

    I see it the ooposite of Vak.
    Often it is Freshman with great years who fall apart during the tournament. Think Esposito & Max Askern in past years.
    Therfore I put forward Mike Grey, Kellen Russell

    Usually, this is the first mistake people who talk to me make.

    The bottom three weights are the least likely to all american....

    Esco, Gomez and Mendes can all be beat by more than one guy.

    Metcalf, GG, Tann, Gavin, Varner, Glenn and Fox are all AA'ing.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.
