    I too have watched Doug wrestle since he was a kid. He has a track record of beating guys that nobody gave him a chance to beat. He may be a long shot in alot of peoples eyes but those of us that have seen what he can do think he is in good position to medal.

    anything can happen at the olympics, and personally i think that if there is going to be an upset in wrestling, it will be at this weight. 66 is the most unpredictable weight IMO and the US has a great rep for 66 (bubba jenkins, zadick) so you never know.

    my picks:55- naraambatar (always improving + showed himself vs kudukhov + tough/hungry)60- batirov (has difficult tech/tac. system to beat as long as he does his stuff)66- schwab (i believe he can rattle opps at this weight especially at such anx. times)74- aldatov (something about his style that can disarm saytiev, tigiev will be tough too)84- ketoev (acts and feels like the master, lets just see now)lttr.
