    Default Seeding in the Big 10 at 133 and 174

    I'm curious what some of you guys think about seeding for the Big 10. I think 174 is still up in the air a bit after Storley, since we have some head to head to go, but I think it goes something like this:

    1. Storley
    2. Evans/Kokesh winner
    3. Evans/Kokesh loser
    4. Brown/Heflin winner
    5. Brown/Heflin loser
    6. Blanton
    7. Yates

    Blanton could beat Evans, also, and completely throw this into disarray.

    Where it gets really interesting is at the top of 133, to me. Presuming that both guys win out until the tournament. Clearly Stieber has beaten Ramos all 3 times they met in college, all last season. Both guys are undefeated and have been dominant. However, Stieber missed a big chunk of the season including the dual with Iowa that would have given us the definitive statement on this seeding. Does Ramos get the 1 seed due to Stieber's missed time? Should he?

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...

    I think ramos is still the 2 regardless.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Agree-Steiber #1-Ramos #2 Graff #3 Thomas #4
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    tough call since Steiber didn't wrestle Ramos or a few other guys.

    It's clear cut:

    1) Ramos 6-0
    2) Stieber 3-0

    You don't get seeded for sitting on the bench.

    I just don't see it...David Thorn is not elite. I don't think he'll place"

    I think you've got 174 right--it depends on how the remaining duals go.

    133--I can't see giving Ramos the #1 seed with having lost 3 times last year, and Stieber not losing any since then. I don't think his injury-missed matches should/will keep him from the #1 seed. We'll see. I don't see Thomas as getting the #4 seed.

    does it really matter at 133? Stieber and Ramos meeting in the finals is about as sure of a thing as you can get. Stieber should get it though, being the returning undefeated B1G Champ

    I agree Ramos and Stieber are so far ahead of Graff and Thomas, I don't see it making much difference
