    I'm guessing wrong. You still have all the best Big 10 wrestlers, lose the bad Big 10 wrestlers, and add other high quality wrestlers. Basically, the Big Ten is an 8-man tourney. Look at the quarterfinals of any NCAA tourney and in probably 90% of cases it's tougher than Big 10s.

    I'm with Gold on this. If you're looking at where it is easier to get three wins in the top bracket, ok, maybe NCAA. But to place top 6 or 8, Big 10 is much easier...

    Nope, just telling it like it is. And, nobody is anticipating Iowas loss. Just what I had my bout sheets telling me last night. I have been wrong before though, but not on very many occassions. Herkey and Chop know, Im defending my NCAA pickem title this year.

    Agreed. The Big Ten is the toughest conference in the country, but Nationals are another thing all together. 141 though will be ruled by Big Ten guys in the quarters.

    Just my opinion but, there are three proven great coaches of our era Smith, Brands and Robinson. Proven because they have won more than one NCAA Championship. Sanderson may be the next one, or not. Of the three, Brands has the best package. Although OkieSt. will finish higher than expected.

    I agree that a coach shouldn't be considered a great coach until he has won a championship.

    I'll take the five guys who won Big 10's for Penn State to outperform the eight guys who couldn't make the finals at a weaker tournament for Iowa.
    Ummm, Iowa had 4 guys make the finals at Big 10's. Are their 12 weight classes now?
