    66: Schwab
    74: Heskett
    84: Williams
    96: Cormier

    Needless to say, it'll be interesting how this team winds up doing. Lot of new guys.

    Anything can happen with the new rules and I wouldn't count anyone out. Is it our Dream Team? Not by a long shot. Some of these guys have some really good International experience. I see the move up to 84 kg as the best thing Williams has done in 4 years. He will be a strong contender for a Medal. One of the toughest weights in the world though.

    Cejudo can do well. As can Rowlands with a good draw. Cormier? Well, we'll see.

    As I have said before, the new rules bring everyone closer together. The best wrestler doesn't always win under these rules and that is why the past few years we have seen a lot of "turnover" on our World Teams and a ton more upsets.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    55: Durlacher
    60: Warren
    66: Lester
    74: TC
    84: Vering
    96: Ruiz
    120: Byers

    I like the look of our Greco guys, this is pretty much our standard team at least it seems like. Warren has been fantastic all year, I think he's definitely a favorite to repeat.

    I'd like to Haze make it in the future. I'd figured Durlacher would win the trials, he usaully doesn't wrestle to full potential at Nationals.

    I see good things. Greco squad looks great with Lester, Warren, Byers all legitimate Gold medal threats. Durlacher and Ruiz already have world bronze. New rules help TC and Vering, I think had a 5th a few years back.

    FS I think we may be a year away, with the exception of Williams and Cormier who should be winning medals now.
