125 lbs -- Micah Roes takes out #3 seed Brandon Courtney.

Probably not gonna happen.  But I like Roes and there are generally a few guys at the lower weights who have a case of scale flu.

Kennedy Monday might tech Amine. 

133: Mario Guillen over Madrigal

141: Erin over Sherman; Woods over WIllits

165: Monday over Amine

197: Shaw over Sloan; Coleman over Davison

Overall, I have a ton of upsets with so many wrestlers having few matches throughout the year.

To pick one... I'll go with Nathan Traxler (26) over Ethan Laird (7) at 285lbs.  Laird has better wins this year.  Traxler is 2-0 against Laird and has a better historic record against similar competition.

I don't think that match is happening. Traxler (25) is going against Jordan Wood according to the bracket I'm looking at.

Poor Traxler...so Woods will beat Traxler... but (21) Tate Orndorff (OHST) will beat (12) Christian Lance (Neb).

That certainly didn't age well:

Brandon Courtney wins by MD (18-7) over Micah Roes

Lmao don't try to roast people for picking an upset wrong--they're usually going to be wrong, that's why it's an upset. He even said he didn't expect it to happen.

The fact that you would characterize what I wrote as "roasting" is simply absurd.  Instead of offering uninvited and ridiculous "advice" to others why not concentrate on working on yourself.

Your whole post was meant to mock that dude for having the balls to pick a 30 seed to win. Now go away

Welcome to the internet my friend. The whole point is to mock people for making ridiculous picks.
