I have some Husker bias, but Venz from Nebraska as the #9 seed is hard to stomach. I could see him maybe sliding to the 6 or 7 after finishing 4th at Big Tens, but falling into the same quad as MyMar is tough to process.
#3 Zavatsky - placed ahead of him at Cliff Keen (2nd vs 4th, including beating the guy Zavatsky lost to twice at the same tournament)
#4 Parker - pinned Parker first match, lost decision second match
#5 Dean - I know you're not supposed to count it, but beat him soundly H2H at All-Star classic and NCAAs last year
#6 Foster - beat him H2H twice this year
#7 Reenan - lost a very close match
#8 Preisch - wrestled half the quality schedule of Venz, but did have common opponent beating #15 Ness H2H (Venz one "bad" loss on the year)
Returning 4th place all-American, 12 matches against guys ranked top 15, going 5-7 in these matches. Common sense should have him as a top 5-6 seed, but apparently that isn't in the formula. Sorry our guy is in the toughest conference in the country and ACTUALLY SHOWS UP TO WRESTLE. I suppose with a handful of ducks we could have locked up a top 4 seed, but that's chicken $hit and I'll never respect the teams that regularly do this.
Chad Red as the #16 after finished 2nd in Big Tens is maybe even more baffling. How the hell do FIVE wrestlers he placed higher than in conference, two of whom he beat soundly H2H last weekend, get seeded THAT MUCH HIGHER (#3, #6, #7, #8, #11)?
Both of these seeds and numerous others are crap, rant over.
