    Didn't McCoy do that? I believe he beat Joel Greenlee 7-4 in the HWT finals in 94 after losing at 190 the year before.

    Yes, the quality of HWTS has been down for a while now, too many are 210# athletes going up and the larger HWTs do nothing but stand and push.

    Yes he did but that was a completely different McCoy. I don't know what he did that summer but he wasn't a very good 197 pounder.

    Aren't there some good ones redshirting and coming in next year? Blue - I'm having a senior moment - what's the Tiger kids name that's redshirting? I think Thompson, who's headed to Iowa State, shows a lot of potential. And - how can you not hope for great things from a kid named Atticus Disney?

    Sigh,
    These everyweights look pretty good to me, especially Dustin Fox.

    Big,
    thank you for your expert opinion that Fox did his duty.

    2006 when Pat Degain placed third. well, not finals but you get the idea. and that was the toughest all around year for that class in the last five or six.

    In regards to Bergman, its not like he went from 197 to 215. He's got to be at least 250. Which is a very good size heavy.

    You are forgetting the best heavy in college who is Tervel Dlagnev. I saw him absolutely take Fox apart in last year's Midlands final.
    He has not faced too many top DI guys this year, he did wrestle in All Star match aginst a returning AA (Sauer?), but he is stil a decent pick for the Hodge trophy.
