    is he honestly going to make the playoffs without posting a lineup?

    I drafted Dragon, but I dropped him because at one point I had 4 157s and I needed to spread myself out a little. I picked up Jedd Moore because he's an Ohio dude that was on a roll and I felt sort of proudful. But then I dropped him when I realized he didn't have any matches for the rest of December. Those two are both quality wrestlers, but I'm wanting top 10. I already have a quality 157 in Johnstone, but he will not AA without wrestling his ass off at NCAAs.

    I like Dragon, but he only has like 9 matches left before tourneys and some really tough matches mixed in there with Burroughs, JPO, Leen, Vallimont. He would probably do well in his conference, but I don't think it's worth the risk.

    You are right that Umbehauer will not win 184, but Chandler will certainly not win 157. 157 is probably the hardest weight class right now, and Chandler will be lucky to get 3rd in the Big 12. I would like to have him on my team, but he ain't winning it all...

    As I recall, Ruschell is mine if I want him anyway (Hall trade). Clark for Sentes? Hmmmm. I'll have to think about that. I'll let you know.

    I am calm. I'm not saying I resent the trade and I know Halsey is a good dude--If I thought it was that bad of a deal I wouldn't have made it. You were just rubbing in the fact that you were catching up so I just rubbed in the fact that part of the reason is me.

    I don't really follow what you're saying--what does Herbert being a lock have to do with Zapp?

    Oh yeah and about you catching up to me--that's what I was trying to tell you when you gave me your puppy face and said "but Gold, I won't make the top 6 without Byers' matches but you're so safe, blah blah." I'm certainly not a lock to make the cut. So when you are in those 29 matches, know that a lot of them came from me!

    1) Colt has beaten Glasser twice this year--once this weekend (4-0 in a match he controlled the whole time) and once at Vegas (3-1). OSU wrestles Minnesota again this year, but it is in Columbus. We won't see Iowa until the Big 10 tourney though--so he likely won't see Morningstar until the finals. I could be wrong, but I think the Big 10 is actually pretty weak at 165.

    I think Spons will be fine until tourney time. Maybe Howe could beat him because he has a chip on his shoulder, but Sponseller shows up to wrestle every single time he steps on the mat (except I really don't know what happened at the end of last year).

    Thanks for the tip on Vallimont.

    Johnstone has already redshirted. What they should have done (and there was talk of) is this: Redshirt Palmer (also, that way he gets another year to wrestle with his brother, who will be a true frosh next year), Hump goes 141, Jaggers goes 149, have someone else go 133...

    Hahaha... 7th?!?!?! In my mind there are 2 people who stand a chance to beat Colt in the Big 10--Morningstar and Howe. The only reason I say Howe is because he has looked strong, he's aggressive, and I haven't seen too much of him. I don't think Smith-Bergsrud will be too big of a problem this year. I wouldn't expect a major, especially with the more conservative style he has adopted this year, but if he gets psyched for the match it could happen.

    I think Colt wins the Big 10 and goes into NCAAs as the #2 seed. It would be a decent surprise if he lost between now and tourney time--he has the following ranked people left on his schedule: Manuel, Howe, Bergsrud-Smith, Patrovich, Glasser.

    I guess that's more than I thought it was...

    How do you think Big 10s will shape up at 165?

    No man don't take a hint, I've been busy. Sorry to make you think I was ignoring you. I'll tell you what, I'll give you Smith-bergsrud from Illinois for Riley. Straight up trade. I've been super bogged down at work amongst other things. let me know if that works for you.

    I don't know how many points I scored--I just wait for the results to come out.

    I will try and think about it...

    9 Triggas
    19 Humphrey
    16 Jaggers
    20 Metcalf
    4 Johnstone
    9 Sponseller
    9 Miller
    11 Umbehauer
    10 Chriswell
    10 Porter
    3 Sulzer

    =120 total

    I would have had a decent amount more but Zapp's stupid rule that defaults get no points. I think that cost me 2 matches (both of which were medical forfeits when my wrestler was winning the match). And then I had people sitting out matches for breathers... Ridiculous! Porter sat out 2/5 matches. Chriswell sat out against Wyoming... These people are killing me!

    125 (UR) Nikko Triggas Ohio State
    125 (11) Joey Fio Oklahoma

    I would like to trade but the offers you sent me last night (Ruschell and A for Metcalf and B, where A=Hall or Clark and B=Johnstone or Fio) were not appealing. I feel like if I'm going to give up Metcalf, I need to get a lot for it. Don't get me wrong--both Clark and Hall would be great improvements to my lineup, but I don't like the downgrade at 149 because of all the bonus points Metcalf gets.

    I am definitely open to trades though. The following people jump out at me as available for trade:

    Triggas, Fio, Jaggers, Sulzer, Johnstone, Miller, Brenner, Honeycutt, Umbehauer, Halsey, Chriswell, and Porter.

    That is most of my roster. The others (Humphrey, Metcalf, and Sponseller) could be parted with, too, but the offer would have to be good since they are such quality wrestlers and I don't have backups at their weights.

    I am taking a week to let this team pan out then on Sat/Sun I will be trying to finalize my team. Thanks Russ. I will be looking for help for trades and waivers on that day.

    No thanks, Glasser is my fill in for when Marable doesn't wrestle. Big10 has more remaining duals than anybody. Jury is still out on Ruschell v. Brown. Unless Baker gets healthy and proven, Sentes will be my scoring flex guy come tournament time.

    Herbst is ranked #3 in the new rankings. Chriswell is #5. That's rather interesting. Also, Fay is still #2, while Sponseller is still at 4. I wonder why Fay did not drop.

    Things are getting CRAZY!!!! I need people to post more on this site so I can waste more time that I should be spending focusing on school...

    What was your reasoning for trading Dennis for Ness? Dennis is pretty hot right now. You think Ness will finally pull it together sometime soon?

    What do you mean post it? Is it wrong in the lineups page?
