Take it up with the pollsters and rankers.  It's a "view" of what the "pundits think" about who is ranked and where.  As we know, every year, rankings matter very little, except for helping project seeding at NCAA's.  I see it as no big deal, as he has the intention of wrestling at that weight, very soon.  Should he be #1?  From the outside looking in, his credentials exceed everyone on the list at 125, finishing 1,3,3 in 3 years.  I know this doesn't factor, but at the end of the day he's also a National Team member.  

 

So... am I butthurt over it... NOPE.  Do I think Suriano could beat him?  Yep.  Should he be ranked at all?  Don't really care.  Results on the mat will play itself out...

Suriano should be #1. 


I have set aside funds to have six Green Bay Packers be my pall bearers, that way they can let me down one final time.

Darian Cruz is the undefeated, defending champion FWIW.

This will be interesting to watch. How long will they go with an injured wrestler? Are there reasonable standards for when to remove? Flashbacks to Bo Jordan last year!

conventional ranking logic says Cruz is #1 until proven otherwise.

Cruz's loss to Suriano last year was not an exhibition, however. A lot has happened since then, so I get it. But understandable that people would think Suriano would beat him again.

Not a seeding discussion.  Hall is ranked 2nd.

He is not undefeated.

 

Cruz has not lost an official bout since his loss to Lizak at last year's Scuffle.  Currently on a 28-match winning streak.

Are you arguing rankings shouldn’t take the All Star dual into account? Because they all do

Tomasello hasn’t lost an official bout at 125 in years.

Whoever is #1 at 125, I think we'll all agree that Mark Hall could handle him quite easily on the mat.
