    Easy answer, gents: Maple. Houdashelt #1 is foolishness, IMO. It's not that he's done bad; he's done well this year. However, this is a guy who finished 6th at NCAAs after an inconsistent season. Now he beats the #6 and #12 guys in the country, both of which are known to be a bit flakey, and you want to put him #1? He has done absolutely nothing to earn that ranking. Putting him at #1 is terribly whimsical--I don't care if Maple did lose to Busler, who really is having a pretty solid season and might be good this year. People have bad days.

    As a ranker, if you ever find yourself with Houdashelt at #1, you should be tearing the world to pieces looking for a better guy, someone who's actually done something to prove himself worthy of the top ranking because Drake certainly hasn't. This is the case at 197 where Taylor Meeks is kind of the defacto #1 guy. The wild thing here is that at 149, we actually have a guy who has done much more than Houdashelt--Kendric Maple.

    I honestly can't believe that Houdashelt beats #12 Josh Kindig and there is an outcry that somehow this means he jumps Maple.

    Mike Kelly beat Edwin Cooper so I'd put him at #1. Quit using logic Gold.

    I've got to agree that just because Maple lost a match doesn't mean that he is no longer the heavy favorite. 149 might be chaos behind him but I'm going to give Kendrick the benefit of the doubt and say that he is still clearly the best 149 pounder.
