Stoll wont even score 7 points let alone place 7th.
I had him 1-2 in his original bracket placement. He really lucked out. Parris could be a tough match, but a true frosh and Stoll wrestles a tough style. Even Gable didn't score much on him. Then he would have Jennings, who he has beaten like a drum historically, even this year.

I had to read your picks a couple of times because with the way you were going I thought you were going to have Bowman in the blood round.

What's the over/under on team point deduction for the Hawkeyes?

How soon will TnT exhaust/waste their challenges?

Nah. Bowman went 2-2, lost in the round of 16.

**** Overall a great job and a Labor of Love.  All on this Board have their own predictions but at least you had the courage to post yours.  I only see one glaring omission: Josh Humphreys of Lehigh will at least make the Blood Round and very likely can place.  He is a Young Beast, similar to Austin Meys in strength.

Humphreys has a pretty good draw, too. 8th seed, and the 9th seed is a guy he's beaten earlier.  I see him getting to QF's where he meets Nolf, then drops down to consis into the blood round.

Does your bracket have Daniel Lewis losing to Jacobe Smith in the quarters and then beating him in the 3rd place match, or do you have one of them losing earlier?
I have them alternating wins. My thought is Lewis may be looking past Smith at Valencia and getting upset, but then asserting his superiority in the 3rd place match.

Why do you see Micic doing so poorly?  Is his injury that bad?
I don't know, so I erred on the side of yes. If he's fine, he probably wins. Big variance. If he's hurt, I think he might FFT out if he loses, since I think he's more worried about worlds.

Stall was very fortunate with the redraw. He matches up very favorably with Parris and Jennings. I think if he were completely healthy, Wood would be a favorable match up as well but given his current form, I think Wood handles him relatively easily. Something like a 3-5pt decision.

Sounds more to me that there is a potential Uprising at Woundee Knee
