    Ask me again when were about a week out. I've only seen him wrestle once this year so it's hard to tell if I'm guaging him correctly or if my gut is listening to my heart.

    5 of the top 7 in the nation are in the big 10. I am amazed Russell is still unbeaten .

    As much as I like Boris right now MM is the only one I can see beating KR & countering his strength & hand control. The only thing that will beat him @ this point is speed or a chess match & so far it looks like no other college wrestler can even have enough strength to start a set of moves off. In Alton III KR doesn't look to create openings until the SV. Before that he is just looking for openings.

    I still think Kennedy takes it, assuming he's fully healthy.

    He's the clear favorite.
    I think we need to see how Marion wrestles along with the others you mentioned. I don't think there is a clear cut favorite at this weight as of today!

    Russell is the FAVORITE, now would I bet him? Probably not.

    We'll see this Sunday when Michigan pays a visit to Iowa.

    Any of those 5 can win it. Who's hot who's cold.........they'll all end up in Phily when it counts.

    And, this Friday, Kennedy vs Alton and Sunday Thorn vs Alton. This weekend should give some more indication. But with that group, on any given tournament the results would likely change. It reminds me a bit of 149 a couple of years ago that had 5 former/future national champs--Metcalf, Caldwell, Burroughs, Schlatter, O'Connor plus 2 runners-up: Jenkins and Palmer. This group may not be quite as deep as that one, but it's good. Can anybody think of a weight class at the NCAA's that was as loaded as the 2008 149 class?

    There isn't a weight class that is even remotely close. Also Ryan Lang was a returning finalist.
