The "lb for lb" has improved a little since then. I think the match they wrestled last year was 10-4 or something like that. 

Score was 20-8

He was Nolf's equal in h.s. A Buckeye fan debated with me on the two of them.

Who won the gopher or the buckeye?

Both of the Jordans seem like they have come down with a case of the HEW.  They are still highly competitive, and will continue to win 80-90% of their matches... but... the fire that they both had their respective freshman years seems to have dissipated.  Both Micah and BoJo seem to be "lumbering" around, looking to impose their will on their opponent.  When they wrestle someone their equal, close to equal, or even better than, they crumble.  It's sad to watch.  

 

Good Lord, what a massive overreaction.  

 

Micah lost to two wrestlers last year, total.  He scored bonus in over 75% of his victories, and he was an All-American for the first time.  Care to explain to me how exactly he lost his "freshman fire?" He bumped to 157 and lost one poorly wrestled match.  He'll be fine.  

 

Bo has basically only ever lost to the very best at his weight, and Zahid is going to make a lot of people look like they're "lumbering around" this year.

Gotta agree with this. Like, "wow, this top recruit is ONLY on track to be a 4 time AA and national finalist. What a bust!" *rolls eyes*

He has to. As of this moment, Zahid is at #1 seed of NCAAs and will not face Mark or Bo till the finals. If Bo wins then beat Mark twice, he will get #1 seed. But that is a big if. If Zahid wins again then he has made #1 seed solid at the NCAAs.


If Hall and zahid both go undefeated for the rest of the year Hall will be the number one seed. The All-Star match will not matter for seeding at nationals.

so what exactly would warrant Hall over Valencia? Past results no longer get taken into consideration for seeding anymore

Why would Hall be #1? Last year’s results don’t factor in either.

An undefeated returning national champion would get the 1 seed over an undefeated 3rd place finisher.

Did you miss the part where past results don't count?

Yeah you’re right an indefeated wrestler out of the pac 12 will have a better RPI than that of an undefeated wrestler from B1G. I don’t care what their new criteria is, has an undefeated returning national champ ever gotten anything less than a 1 seed.
