    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.
    Kyler wrestled 7 seeded wrestlers with 4 wins.

    Kyler didn't win 7 matches, he went 4-3.

    They both beat four seeded wrestlers, so apparently there is some sort of tiebreaker we aren't aware of.

    I suspect the tiebreaker then is the fact that Kyler went up against 7 seeded wrestlers compared to 6 for Mcknight.

    But that would mean that Kyler's winning percentage against seeded wrestlers is actually lower than McKnight, so you would think McKnight would win the tie breaker...

    But he had more opportunities to lose also. I wrote to the Flo boys asking about the criteria. I'm surprised Dart and Champ don't know being so close to the results. I suspect Flo just unzipped this somewhat unofficially.

    Wasn't Branch the one who won nationals who had a losing record going into the tournament? Or am I thinking of someone else?
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    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.
