    I don't think you'll ever see Fanthrope weigh inn @25 again, I'd say Reilands boy Kist takes the spot @25.
    Erisman will make some noise for the pokes @57/65
    Don't see McCormick topping Scott.

    I think McCormick does top Scott, but maybe you're right.

    Anyway, for the record the moderator or someone else changed the topic title on me. I don't think of these as rankings, nor did I write them as rankings. They're strichtly predictions.

    Why do you say that about Fanthorpe, Trusty?

    JT, Jon Reader will be at 165 (or perhaps 174) for Iowa State. I'm pretty sure Turner has graduated. Also, Bertolino is competing with Joe Curran for the 197 slot.

    yeah, didn't mean to forget about Reader. That was an accident. Turner graduated huh? I was thinking he was in the same grade as bertolino. Anyway, I'm not familiar with this Curran character.

    Champs, because the conference is small and I'm even lazier.

    125: Donahoe
    133: Scott
    141: Morgan
    149: Burroughs (my sleeper if he can make the weight again as he's a big dude)
    157: Chandler
    165: Reader
    174: Mason
    184: Varner
    197: Askren
    285: Zabriskie

    Yes, Turner was a Sr last year.

    Curran made a decent showing two years ago as a true freshman. Didn't wrestle varsity last year because Backes moved to 197.

    Borroughs really isn't that far of a stretch to be Big 12 champ. No one owns the Big 12 @ 149. He gave Storniolo all he could handle last year, but then again Storniolo was only at about 50% if that too. Borrough's Big 12 champ? It's not that far of a stretch.
