Thread: Well Shucks...

  1. #1

    Default Well Shucks...

    Kind of an Anticlimatic way to end a race between the top two, but with BOTH green and Napoli getting upset in the first round I think I'm well and truly out of it. Green is going to have to beat Alton or Welch in the R12 just to PLACE, and thats assuming he doesnt choke again.

    Napoli has Zilverburg, then Peppleman and Dong just to place. A little less threatening, but given that he just got dominated by a fairly medicore Taylor Walsh I dont like my chances

    With two of my top seeds having a good shot at not even placing I dont think I have any hope of keeping up with Dutch. I don't know if there is any other team that qualified that has a shot but I dont expect to be in the running

    Who are we kidding, you have 5 guys that are probably going to make the finals if not win titles. I'll be lucky to get that many into the semis even.

    I think it'll be a decent contest between me and zapp for 2nd

    Ok, after going 7-7 in the quarters, I think you are right!

    congrats Dutch !!
    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.

    125: US Cullinan

    Not a guy who was a lock to AA by any means but he was highly ranked before he pooped his pants at the conference tourney. THen he had a great draw here and choked again vs Okie State

    133: Morrison
    Has done as well or even slightly better then I expected.

    141: Stieber
    Has wrestled terribly all tournament, ended up squeaking by on a controversial call in the quarters, then choking against a guy he's beaten 3-4 times handily in the semis. Not only sank any hope of me winning the tournament but also is probably going to cost me $100 since I bet against Maple

    149: Brascetta
    Lost a close one to the slightly lower seeded sueflohn, then again to Sakaguchi. Both guys he could have beaten but not guys he was necessarily favored over, so I cant be too disapointed with how he turned out

    157: Napoli
    Just... woww... Easily the biggest flameout of the tournament, Napoli crapped his pants in the most epic of fashions and got dominated twice en route to 0-2

    157: Green
    Darkhorse guy to win a title, underperformed pretty severely. Got upset in the first round, then wrestled back only to lose again to moore who apparently has his number. He faces Flemming for 7th and I kind of expect him to lose that match

    165: DT
    Probably my only bright spot in my entire lineup

    174: Brown
    I lied, Brown has lived up to a seed he probably didnt earn and bonused along the way. Of all of my wrestlers, he has the only one who has really performed ABOVE expectations in any way

    184: Ihnen
    Upset in the early rounds and then loses to Loder in the R12. Not a shocking occurence considering he came in as 9 seed, but pretty disappointing since I was counting on an AA from him. Also since he's beaten Loder the last two times they've wrestled.

    197: Wilps
    Lost a close one to Wright (I wasn't following at the time so I dont know the specifics). He's done what he was seeded to do, hopefully won't get upset in the WB

    HVY: Hanke
    Lost a match to McMullan that in all honestly was a tossup, then decided to be a turd and get pinned by a medicore Delaney from Citadel. Big underperformance



    Overall my team has performed below average, with several of my biggest guys getting upset at key moments. I was an underdog coming into this so I'm not shocked to lose, but I was hoping there would at least be some drama about it.

    I haven't looked to see how Zapp or others are doing, its possible I wont even get 2nd with my guys effort
