    I agree with the champs at 125, 133, 157, 165, 174, 184, and 197. I'll post my predictions if I find my filled out brackets and definitely after St. Patrick's day. God bless the Irish

    Dom at 6 is my biggest beef. A few guys I wouldnt have included, but overall nice job. Im wrapping mine up now. Some of these matches are so close it is almost impossible to know who to go with.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I had Dom losing to Zac Thomusseit twice, in the quarterfinals and the 5th place match. I also had him losing to Alan Gelogaev in the consolation Semis. At HW, obviously, lots of these matches could go either way. Telford got a little lucky because I felt he does better against guys like Thomusseit, who fell to him in the consolation Semis. I would have had Telford losing to either Bradley or Gelogaev.

    Interesting that you have Graff finishing third but not in the semi-final match. What are your thoughts there?

    I think he'll get caught looking past a very tough McCormick to his rematch with Ramos, and lose, but when on full focus he'll beat McCormick in the 3/4 rematch.
