    I am thinking about picking Halsey up-Gold and I are working on something -the man is a STUD !!! 2-3 teams have ffted to him because he is an animal and they are afraid he will hurt their opponent -don't have to worry about that now -I see him on the podium -high on the podium .

    Good, because if you thought I was a shoo in for a wild card spot thats when I'd start getting nervous.

    LoSt is the only one who sat on his hands while Gofer picked Hernandez in the 15th round, then complained, then got Hernandez in the draft and then later traded him back to Gofer for Roberts. That's actually funny now.

    125: Pat Mccaffrey - Round 6 - Honestly, this was a really solid pick. His back up has done really well this year for Navy. After drafting Lewnes late the year before (after training a year at OTC), I felt good about it. Knee goes busto. Great.

    125: Brian Owen - Traded to Jensen because of my 174lb surplus for Quentin Wright. Poor move. Smart move by Jensen to ship him out after Body Bar.

    133: Lou Ruggerillo - My 2nd round pick (actually my first considering I had a keeper). Hofstra guys are money every year. They win conferences. Wrestle every match. Score bonus.

    141: Bencivenga - Round 7. I thought we'd see great things from him after he beat Strayer at PSU in his red shirt year. He actually scored me a fair amount of points. But in retrospect, Williams, Tsirtsis, Jantzen, Krom and Thorn were still on the board.

    149: Metcalf - Keeper. Pwned.

    157: Dragon - 5th Round. Not a good pick. Not a lot of bonus, little bit of injury. I thinking he'd be really good coming back this year. Should've drafted a little more conservative here.

    157: Scott Winston - Solid pick for Round 12. Going to see good things from him in the future. He was part of my "young guy" run (Mccaffrey, Winston, Gardner, Wright)

    157: Kody Hamrah - Not a bad pick for Round 13. Flexed him alot. Got a lot of pins. Caldwell and Hamrah usually won for NC State. Turns out he is my starting 157 for conferences as the other two have to run a gauntlet of JPO, Leen and each other.

    165: Keegan Mueller - Props to Dart for a little competitive intel on this one. He mentioned him to me in Round 10. After a little research, he proved to be a solid pick. Beer for you.

    165: Mark Friend - BOOOOOOO. A keg pumped natural light would have been a better draft. Last pick.

    174: Alton Lucas - Round 3. Love Hofstra guys. Still think its hilarious that I started him one week only to have Q Wright beat him from my bench. Probably could have gotten more bonus, but its nice to have a guy who you know will win.

    174: Q Wright - Drafted him for 165 in Round 11. Ended up adding to my surplus of 174. I drafted the young guys with hopes of breakout seasons for trade leverage later. Trading for Brian Owen was not the way to go.

    174: Justin Herbert - Round 14. Homer pick. Pins alot and a very weak schedule. Dropped him later as he has zero chance to get out of the conference.

    184: Louis Caputo - Round 4. Probably picked him up too early....especially after hearing about Gofer's woes a year ago. The harvard guys (minus JPO) are just hit or miss when it comes to showing up. My early season research showed he was working out hard and knew his time in competitive wrestling was nearing an end....and wanted to capture every moment. Hopefully he'll AA.

    197: Cody Gardner - Round 9. Wins a couple of unscored tourneys....loses to a Tech kid at Vegas and can't recover for the rest of the year. BOOOO.

    HWT: Zach Hammond - Round 8. This guy didn't do as well as most thought he would. I credit that to being part of a Cornell team that is so strong....that he just doesn't have the confidence or skill level to measure up with this mates.

    SUPPLEMENTAL

    125: Jarrod Garnett - This guy is the straight up man. Love having him. Pins everyone. Tech had the most loaded back half schedule. Winning big matches. Dropped Mccaffrey for him.

    141: Dropped Herbert at 174 and picked up Accordino. Lots of bonus from him and I love hofstra guys for fantasy. Dubuque says he's the biggest 141 in the country. Bright future for this kid.

    197: Dropped the donkey that is Mark Friend and picked up Pat Bradshaw. Hoping he can win his conference.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    dont even try and pull that shit... I was going to pick hernandez with my last pick and posted it and the you went and tried to steal him, and Jensens wouldnt let you.

    Also Roberts for Hernandez was an even worse trade then Askren for Hall.

    What was I going to do with Grajales, Roberts and Yates? Yates has already made up whatever points you are going to get at conferences this year with Roberts.

    They both won't see anything but the bench so who carts in regards to Roberts/Hernandez.

    Askren for Hall is not a bad trade. What point is thinking about Nationals if you don't make playoffs? So I can sit back all next year like you saying "if I had made NCAA's, I would have crushed you all, but unfortunately I didn't make playoffs."

    How many more lessons do you need? Seriously, go write a paper for school.

    I think mostly I am just cranky because I was going to get escobedo...

    Its not a terrible trade its just not a good one and I'm sure you could have done better.

    As for Roberts yeah I realize he was going to be sitting for you but I'd still rather have a conference champ and solid guy on my team then a sub .500 slacker like hernandez, even if niether of them ever starts :P

    you mean like the two slackers you have on your bench now in Hernandez and Colin Johnson...who the "f" are those guys?

    Check Dudziak, I think he tripped on a donut and fell on Precin.

    This trade is a gamble for me....I'm banking on making the finals without the help of Hall, his Conference points more than likely will be double that of Askrens. If I fall short, I fall short, I'm goin for the win, not to just qualify.

    Oh well, I like rolling the dice.......
