Yes, (yes), and yes.

Fan-freakin-tastic.  Looking forward to another year of horrible seeding.

what are the terms for American?  Same as last year only seeding them as high one seed lower than the AQs?

EIWA Preview is out from the conference: Pre-seeds coming Monday but this gives some clarity to some of the question marks in the lineups. However, teams do have until the coaches meeting Thursday where I believe they challenge seeds to change the lineup for this year only.

https://d2o2figo6ddd0g.cloudfront.net/c/o/2nlwdct2ur0dgg/The_117th_EIWA_Championships_--_2021_Tournament_Preview.pdf

125: Curry looks to be a go for American.

141: No Paetzell at either 133/141 for Lehigh it seems. Hines and McGonagle are listed at both weights previews. Tyler Williams instead of Flores for Drexel. Patrick Ryan for American.

149: Kizhan Clarke is a go.

157: Luca Frinzi (2-1) instead of Burkhart for Lehigh.

174: Tim Fitzpatrick and not Anthony Wokash will fill this weight for American.

184: James Langan (LIU) moving up from 174 lbs. where he wrestled this season. 174 gets 5 bids and 184 6 bids. Dylan Ammerman looks to have won the wrestle-off for Lehigh and will be 184 over Logan.

285: Sean O'Malley entering for Drexel with no dual meets wrestled on the year. 

I can't say I am an expert on the Lehigh depth chart but it looks like they have an even harder hill to climb after some of these lineup changes. Maybe I will be shocked.

"Dylan Ammerman looks to have won the wrestle-off for Lehigh and will be 184 over Logan."

No, Ammerman at 184 over JT Davis (& Caden Wright). Logan will be at 174.

But, yes, Navy looks to be the favorite. "Where be Paetzel?" is a question that will eventually be answered for us LU fans.

Yes. I stand corrected about the Lehigh 174/184.

Paetzel, I don't get it as a just general wrestling fan either. I believe he was a returning conference champion, debuts up two weights, and loses to a top 10 guy by a point and that is the only match he sees all year.

3rd place last year at 125.

Didn't certify until a couple days before that one match at 141.

Not positive but believe he lost a wrestleoff at 141.

Either Lehigh or Cornell has won the last 19 EIWA Championships.......and 13 of those years whoever didn't win was the runner-up.......Cornell with 11 championships and Lehigh with 8 championships..... took a pandemic to most likely end that streak (barring a stellar performance from a young and depleted Lehigh team)......this is the year though.....after this EIWA, Cornell looking pretty dominant for the next couple years and after that who knows?

Based on prelim brackets, American is only sending 4 wrestlers.

...and if #3 seeds Curry and Clarke make the finals, they don't qualify for NCAA due to not having enough bouts.

No...wrestlers have until March 7th to get their four matches in.

Who would want to wrestle them though? A guys season is either over and he doesn't want to make weight, is already qualified for nationals and probably doesn't want to risk COVID, or guys waiting at-larges and they don't want to help other guys qualify and shrink the pool.

133 sticks out to me as something that will be challenged and has a chance to change.

#2 Miller (#23 CR) (2-1 EIWA starters): lost 6-4 to Montgomery, won vs. LIU/Sacred Heart
#3 Sobotker (2-0 EIWA starters): Won 10-5 vs. Montgomery:, won vs. LIU
#4 Olsen (3-0 EIWA starters): Won 6-3 vs. Lambert, won vs. LIU, Sacred Heart
#5 Lambert (1-1 EIWA starters): Won by fall vs. Montgomery, lost 6-3 vs. Olsen
#6 Montgomery (2-2 vs. EIWA starters): beat Miller, lost by fall to Lambert, lost 10-5 vs. Sobotker

Miller seems to be #2 based solely off of coaches ranking. You could move him to #6 and everybody up one and nobody would be able to argue based off of head-to-head results.

Don’t expect any Seeds to change.  They won’t even share their Seeding Criteria.

“Lack of transparency” seems to becoming more common in our sport & is certainly not good for fans IMO.

Thanks! So I guess my question/statement would be if head-to-head is #1, then 133 seems incorrect based off of that and #2 at least within the conference (not sure about beyond)? I don't want to come off as argumentative as I have no dog in the fight. I am just genuinely interested in the process that goes into it. Although your ranked list doesn't match the pre-seeds exactly it does seems to make more sense than the pre-seed (at least in my head).

I have no way of getting into the heads of the rest of the people on the committee, however, I can say that I tried my best to follow the criteria exactly.
