    Some weird ones that i didnt expect to be as high of not high enough.

    For me i'm surprised Krom is an 8 seed and I believe he'll outwrestle that seed. Everything else was about how I expected.

    The 197 seeds in general are insane, it's such a weak weight. Patrick Bond is seeded?

    Looks like Herkey has a slight lead over Gold and I, then it drops off a bit. We'll see if anyone comes up to challenge us.

    Anyone else have any thoughts?

    125 I'm glad that Long and Robles are on the other side from McDonough. McD seems to have Sanders' number so I'm not to worried about him but beating someone four times in one season is tough. I like McD to make it to the Semi's before he is really challenged by TNick.

    133 I like Novochkov's draw as well except for Ness being on his side. Novochkov will have Oliver in the qtrs if it all plays out and he has split with him.

    Kubec's draw sucks. He'll have Dennis second round.

    141 I like Marions draw as well. I'm glad he's on the same side with both Thorn and Parks since he has beat both of them this year. Although if Marion is not at his best he will have a tough tournament.

    Diaz will have Marion in the second round and if he wins Thorn in the qtrs.

    149 I don't think Metcalf has any problems on his side of the bracket.

    157 Pami has a tough draw with Kinser in the first round, Vernon second round, Hall in the qtrs and Dong in the Semi's if he keeps winning. Tough, tough draw.

    165 I like Readers draw except for the fact that he will face Howe in the semi's. I think he'll score me some points but I'm not sure he beats Howe.

    174 Borschel will see Lewnes in the finals. It's a date and don't be late!

    184 Smith has a potentially tough draw in Ward in the opening round and Keddy or Caputo in the qtrs and a possible matchup with Foster or Cannon in the semi's. Will be tough but he's tough too.

    197 Bond will have Lapotsky in the second round and if he happens to get past him, Taylor in the qtrs. Tough draw for my weakest weight.

    Schuth will lose first round to Haynes and if he happens to win he'll get beat by either Brent Jones or Brandvold in the second round.

    HWT The top half of this bracket is brutal. Erekson has a good matchup with Clayton Jack in the first round. Next probably Scott Steele. After that probably Dudziak and then Zabriskie in the semi's. I think Erekson is the best wrestler on this side of the bracket though, so I like his chances as long as he can keep his wind. He's been gassing a little still since he was out most of the season.

    Nye has a tough matchup with Bordas and if he wins Zabriskie in round two.

    Overall I like where my team is sitting. I like my chances in this tournament.

    your 2 141s will hit in the second round.

    Let's play along @ HOME shall we?

    125: Angel Escobedo 1st vs Frey, Princeton. winner gets Young/Lomas 1st
    133: Nick Fanthorpe 10th vs Choate, Brown, winner gets Grey/Ashmore rd of 12
    141: Chris Drouin US vs #8 Krom, MD winner gets #9 Levi Jones/Jordan Lipp 8th
    149: Frank Molinaro 5th vs Vinson, Binghamton, winner gets #12 Mason/Albright 6th
    157: Dustin Schlatter 6th, vs Scotton, UNC, winner gets #11 Erisman/Lister 2nd
    165: Dan Valimont 6th, vs Epperly, winner gets #11 Schmelyun/Gillespie 7th
    174: Scott Glasser 5th, vs James OU/Beets UNI, winner gets #12 Tovuujav/Zeerip 3rd
    184: John Dergo 2nd vs Thomusseit, Pitt, winner faces Knowles/Saunders 1st
    197: Eric Lapotsky 6th, vs Powless, IU, winner gets #11 Bond/Wilps 3rd
    285: Mark Ellis 9th, vs Barlow, KSU/Amone, Cornell. winner gets #8 Tomei/Haddad 8th
    FLEX Chad Beatty 9th, vs Gelogaev, OSU, winner gets #8 Yohn/Drury 6th

    avg seed 6.55

    Bench
    133 Billy Ashnault US vs Pantaleo, Liberty, winner gets winner of #3 Gomez/Ray
    174 Jordan Blanton 10th vs Burk, ISU, winner gets #7 Bennett/Hamlin
    285 Odie Delaney US, vs #4 Duziak, Duke winner gets Lane/Danilkowicz
    285 Dom Bradley. not wrestling

    That would make my team seeded 4th right now IF I was playing...

    If you took into consideration that DS & CB would have been seeded higher if they wrestled & won their weight classes @ the B10s THEN DS would have been @ least the 4th seed & CB would have been 4th.

    Then my score would have been 5.91. This team has a legitimate shot @ THREE NCs, @ least 8 AAs & maybe even a better score then the league champ. 2nd
