    Johnythompsunnum1 is not johny thompson, he's just a dude who is an iowa fan who apparently loved Johnythompson. He goes by Steve Stonebraker I believe. He really doesn't know much and just predicts victory for whoever he likes. Like Cole Von Ohlen to be top 3 for a few yeras running.

    Really? Nico, Alton, Alton, Taylor, Brown, Ruth, Wright is a pretty nasty lineup.

    He was the guy in their line up from January on (aka the entire Big 10 season). With him being in their line up that long can you really use the "he was sneaking up on people" excuse?

    To Chris' credit he beat the hell out of Ramos in the hand fighting in all of their matches except the 3rd place match at NCAA's where Ramos snapped and took it to him a little bit, he's just got to find a way to make that hand fighting pay off with leg attacks.

    well, there has to be some excuse for Steiber losing.

    I am saying that excuse ends this season. That was my exact point. He will be scouted and taken serious. I still predict him to AA but he won't come close to Ramos or Stieber, IMO. I say he finishes a disappointing 5th.

    He spent 2.5 months in the line up last season. If you want to use the "he was new to the line up" excuse for him beating Stieber (which is what I assume you're getting at) I guess I can see that given that at that point he was new to the line up but to use it for matches after that is patently ridiculous.

    He was at his best at NCAA's which is exactly when according to you he should have fallen off given that people would have had time to scout him and take him seriously. Him knocking off Futrell at NCAA's after losing to him twice during the year kind of flies in the face of that.

    You really trying to convince me that people weren't taking him serious after he won the Scuffle and beat Stieber? C'mon maaan. Everyone(with a clue) knew that Minny was deep at 33 and would be tough whether Thorn or Dardanes took the mat.

    He wrestles everyone close for the most part because of his skill working ties. So he will wrestle Stieber and Ramos close in all likelihood. I'm not predicting a win for him either over those two but I don't see him getting blown out.
