They'll wrestle and solve al these questions in a few weeks -but after the big 10's I thought Zapp's enthusiasm might have waned -he has-- 0--undefeated wrestlers and 1 big 10 champion -I don't see a go to guy -where you know he is going to win -and Palmer losing to Nadhir ? He has already switched heavy's -god knows what his line up will look like come actual tournament time -Rey is a decent freshman hwt .Undersized but ...neither of his 165 pounders won their confrences -his 157 has 5-6 losses -his only conference champions were Craig and todd and we know who is going to win 184 and he is not coming from the EIWA-Todd's knee could go any second .
I would take Fay over Reader or M* any day .
Not to mention Gold has a quality line up as well and RD will have more champions .
Reader has already beaten Fay this year. Both my 165's are in the toughest conferences in America. Even if they don't win the conference, it doesn't mean they aren't national title threats. Last year, Jaggers lost in the first round of Big 10's, and was NCAA champion at his very next tournament. This happens all the time in these big conferences. Last year Jordan Leen didn't win EIWA's, and he was NCAA champion at NCAA's. Undefeated wrestlers don't mean jack, it's about having the best collection of wrestlers, and I feel I have that. My only question mark i my mind is HWT because of Dudziak's injury problems, and possibly 184, but Craig seems to have ironed out his inconsistency problems. I'm confident every other wrestler on my team will AA, and at least one of those two mentioned.
125 Precin will AA, possibly a NCAA champion, although I think 3-5 is more likely.
133 Dennis will AA, possible NCAA champion, between 1-5 is where he'll place.
141 Tsirtsis will AA, possible NCAA champion, although this is a rough weight, so if someone unexpectedly doesnt AA, it will probably be here. That's how crazy this weight is.
149 Lance Palmer will AA, possibly as high as 2nd, but I think 4-6 is most likely.
157 Chandler will AA, I've said as high as champion because I'm biased. In all seriousness, I see him somewhere from 3-8.
165 Morninstar will AA, I'm fully confident in the young man. Could win the title, but he'll lose one of those close matches, so from 2-6.
FLEX Reader will AA, 5-8.
174 Borschel will AA, potential champion, but I really feel Luke has this on lockdown. Somewhere from 2-4.
184 Craig, one of my question marks. Highest I can see him is 5th. I say 6-DNP.
197 Todd will AA, very good chance to be our NCAA champion. I don't see him any lower then 3rd. 1-3.
HWT Rey, my other question mark. On one hand, he gets bonus points and is in a very open weight. On the other hand, he's a frosh. I say from 6-DNP.
If I had to guess, I would say he was referring to 141, 149, 165, 197, and heavy. Will all of them fail to AA? Probably not. But I would be surprised if 2 or 3 didn't (particularly 141, 149, and 197).
