The original tables showed six at-large bids at 125 (with 27 AQ slots).  Why are there now only five at-large bids given?

 good question.  Looks like the SoCon is the culprit.  The original table showed 2 automatic qualifiers and the selection table shows 3. (FRod, Kraisser, Pasone)

Knowing no details, the Michigan kid with a 13-15 record at 141 seems surprising from here. 

he beat cruz, longo and prince early in the year. went 2-8 down the stretch against good competition. i had him and zanetta from pitt 18-13 4th acc battling for the 33rd spot. coaches poll and rpi liked profaci going into conferences.

 I saw another kid with a losing record. How is that even possible? There aren't enough kids with positive records? 

 

Eric Barone Illinois 10-11 Big Ten

Hadn't seen his record previously. He was on SHP's list of those attached to pre-B1G AQs. Must have made it on RPI and CR.

However, after checking, those were 28-CR and 30-RPI. Headscratcher?

Barone is 10-9.  8 of his losses are to guys who made the tournament.  He beat a couple qualifiers as well

??? These guys who earned AQ ARE in NCAAs, aren't they??

Earning an AQ for the conference means they qualified an NCAA spot for the conference (e.g., top four place winners) prior to the conference tourney. AQ earners must still place within the allotment or get tossed into the At Large pool.

Conan Jennings Northwestern 17-14 Big Ten

Zack Parker Ohio 22-11 MAC

Interesting that both Hemida & Jennings in and Brooks Black 11-7 (#25ws vs #89 & #59) Black concussion protocol can't continue in tourney. Black with h2h win against Jennings. Black actually did show up and competed vs compare to those who show up to shake hands & go home.

Few surprises.  Thought Barnes (NU 174) might get one, but he did drop too many matches at the B1G and 10 already qualified. 

 

Surprised that Earl Hall didn't earn a spot, but made at large.  

Same thought about Hall, watched the Big 12's, and this was his third (maybe more?) meeting with Montoya (UNC) on the backside semis, and Montoya was prepared for his style.  I'm glad that Hall got the At Large, he's exciting for sure.
