I'm curious as to why most people are giving Eierman no chance vs Yianni. He wrestled him twice last year, beating him once and losing in OT. It's also obvious from his freestyle results that Eierman has been steadily improving. I don't know if I'd pick him as the favorite, but he's a definite threat to win it at 141.
I also don't see why Ashnault is getting the props. He's a career 141 pounder who hasn't wrestled in a year and is bumping up a weight class. Maybe it's the Wrestlestat effect.
I think because Yianni was a higher level recruit, plus I think Eierman is a year older too (not sure of that part, though). Anyway the point is that kids improve more early in their college careers than their later careers. So, if Yianni is already beating Eierman as a FR , and he's still to show more improvement than Eierman probably will. Generally, mind you. Some guys never hit their sweet zone until their Sr years. But usually guys improve more their FR year than the 3 next years combined.
Pretty poorly written, hope you guys get my point.
