    Badcat,
    What is it about Taylor's freestyle ability/experience that makes you think he'll beat the field (would not surprise me much if any) and a fresh Burroughs 2 out of 3 (that would surprise me)?

    I'd ask the same question about Ruth (though he may have a more "open" weight class).

    I'd ask the same question about Ruth (though he may have a more "open" weight class).
    Taylor's ability to take down an opponent is almost as impressive as his ability to set up a tilt and roll them. His whole style revolves around scoring point after point. Ruth is a different animal altogether. Ruth is a pinner and I'm not sure how his style is going fare in FS, but his freakish arm length and his ability to escape sure takedowns are going to problematic for his opponents.

    It's going to be a blast to watch. I'm really rooting for Kolat...he's my age and I'm reliving my glory days through him. hahahaha

    Absolutely. If forced to bet I'd pick Metcalf but I think Schlatter, Ware, Kolat and Churella all have a legitimate chance to win.

    I guess I'll post my team:
    Simmons, Scott (for now), Metcalf, Burroughs, Jordan (just to be different) Varner, Dlagnev.
