149 Alex Kocer SDSU 8th place

174 Jake Residori SIUE 8th place - Internesting note he beat Kyle Crutchmer the 7 seed in the first round then lost to him for 7th place. Numerology in action.

Projecting unseeded wrestlers in 99 years? Mad skills. Names look pretty familiar though! ;)

Man that's twice in as many weeks I transposed those exact same numbers.

I could see an unseeded wrestler making the finals at 125. We have 3 high seeds with knee braces. One bad series and they are out.

2010 at 125 all over again. Lol

You're going to see less and less of it now that they seed 16 guys per bracket. 

I think this year....

Tommy Thorn of Minnesota was clearly hurt/unhealthy at the BIG 10's.  If he's better now and 100%, I for sure see him making the award stand as an U.S. wrestler 

Jared Prince of Navy is going to get knocked into the consolation bracket first thing in a loss to Brandon Sorensen of Iowa, but I think his route to four consolation victories for an AA medal is doable. 

Paul Fox is dangerous at this tournament. Going to give the Cardinal a nod here. 

Like Prince, Jonathan Schleifer isn't going to win his first round match and he'd have to have one Hell of an upset or two in the consolations, but I'll give it some possibility. He wrestles well in tournaments. 

I'm on the Jake A Smith of West Virginia train.  If he knocks Darmstadt off in the first round, I will not be shocked.

That's a ballsy pick, as stuffed as 125 is with studs! Who did you have in mind?

197 is a pretty open weight for an AA from an unranked guy, maybe Ritter from WI

285 is also a possibility after the top 4 there are a lot of toss ups and after the top 2 maybe even, I say someone like Heino, or Ryan, I always think Solomon could put one together too?

Wouldn't be shocked to see Prince knock off a less than 100% Sorensen.
