  1. 1) Sasso

    2) Lugo 

    3) Oconnor is 100% set.

    The only argument is 4-6 but probably 4) Brock 5) Boo 6) Brayton. 


    With that being said, Oconnor is my pick to win it all. However I do think the top 2 seeds will have a big advantage only having to beat two of those top 6 guys vs the 3-6 seeds who will likely have to win 3 matches vs those other guys in the top 6.

    How so? I'd love an explanation. Not every guy in the room is going to be a 4-year starter. If anything, this advertises one can get opportunities to start in duals--even if they are likely to be career backups to studs like Woods and Abas. 

    After thinking about it more, I don't think my initial post was correct. Its not 100% evidence of bad coaching. It really depends on the kids and what they want. 

    If they aren't that serious about wrestling and really wanted to get on the mat vs Cal Poly, fine I can see that angle. 


    If they wanted to keep their red shirt but the coach just really wanted to beat Cal Poly, then yeah, bad move. 

    I don't agree with your angle "they can get opportunities to start in dues even if they are backups" since injuries and sickness happen at all universities on occasion

    Also, I don't think the Sixers were putting out their worst team or that the guys on the floor were trying to lose.  They just didn't try to improve their team short term. That's pretty much what Cornell is doing.

    But don't get me wrong: I hope it works.

    Here is the difference... If an expensive free agent that would help the team win games wanted to go to the sixers, they wouldn't want him. That would affect their future draft stock. 

    But if there was a top recruit freshman that decided they wanted to transfer to Cornell right now and wrestle immediately they would gladly accept that wrestler, start him, and be thrilled about it. 


    In other words, the man that orchestrated the Cornell wrestling team wants the team to win as many matches as possible. 

    The man that orchestrated the 76ers wanted the team to fail because moderate levels of success would hurt their future chance at a championship. 


    Hope this helped.

    I mean if you’re going to take it so literally the NBA teams that “tank” aren’t literally losing on purpose either.  The guys they put out there are still trying to win, otherwise they’d get in trouble for fixing games.

    You don't seem to be able to grasp a pretty simple point.

    An NBA team puts its worst team out there and hopes it will lose in order to be rewarded with the first draft pick. 

    Cornell redshirted guys, but wan't to start the best possible team they could considering that. They won't benefit in any way from losing like an NBA team would. And they would be ecstatic if they can out perform their expectations. Again, the opposite of an NBA team tanking for a top pick. 


    This is obvious. Get a grip and stop getting so emotional.

    Is Shak your boyfriend or do you just know nothing about wrestling?

    Are you a pedophile that only likes young boys like Aaron and consider them "aged out" when they reach 21?  Or are you just retarded? 

  6. You just don't understand what tanking actually is. 

    If you tank, you don't want to win. An NFL team that wants the best QB in the draft is better off losing to gain an advantage in the draft. 

    Cornell isn't tanking b/c losing will benefit them in no way. The more they win this year the happier they will be. Which is the opposite of an NFL team or NBA team.
