    At least he didn't win the Cole Konrad, shrunkage package award from 2006. Those gold uniforms are still horrendous. It would make me want to get pinned just to get the hell out of there.

    There needs to be some explanation of this "award" ... mainly because the top unseeded wrestler to place was Mark McKnight at 125 ... taking fourth.

    Wrestling seven seeds at a tournament has only happened twice ... 2000 with Mark Dufrense of Lehigh at 174 and last year, Tyler Turner at 149.

    Branch only wrestled four seeded wrestlers when he won the title in 1994.

    Doesn't make sense to me.

    Probably the unseeded guy that beat the most seeded guys.

    Then again coming out of Flo maybe Martin got confused and thought Kyler actually was twelve, instead of just looking like he's twelve and decided to give him an award for being a preteen, and still AA'ing at a pretty tough weight class.

    Sorry, I'm still looking for any set criteria, other than using an OSU wrestler's name for an award.

    According to the numbers RYou posted above, both Kyler and McKnight had wins over four seeded wrestlers. Kyler went 4-3 in the tournament, McKnight went 6-2.

    McKnight finished higher, had the same amount of victories over seeds.

    Anyone got an idea what this "award" means? Because as this conversation shows, it's really up for interpretation.

    Heres the interview where Martin "presents" him with the award.

    Maybe this'll clear a few things up since it hasn't really made an appearance here yet.
