Last Chancers with a Chance

Does anyone in the last chance tournament have a real chance at making the team?

I think Gabe Dean has a shot b/c he wrestled David Taylor tough and could have won. But I don't see anyone else with any shot. 

Am I missing someone?

Nope.  But I doubt dean really stands a chance with DT in a best of three.  Just doesn't seem plausible if DT is back to WC form.

Also: actually making 86kg, then wrestling after 2hrs, and then wrestling the multiple matches to make it to Taylor? All of those favor Taylor.

I think Eierman could make it as that weight is somewhat open.  He did just beat Khingashivilli in a FS match.

Eierman does not seem to be registered in the Last Chance tourney. Is he already qualified for the OTT?

I do not think he is already qualified - I thought he would be at the LCQ

I think people are grossly forgetting the fact that toons like Dean and Lugo haven't made scratch weight in a very long time.  Lugo hasn't been under 149 since high school.  Dean hasn't been 189 since freestyle season after college.

I think it effects Dean less, but someone like Lugo may have a tough time dropping 6lbs+ off a very lean frame.

Eierman's going to win Last Chance and the Trials, but he couldn't win NCAA's?

He would without a doubt be a very long shot - It's moot now anyway it doesn't appear he will be entering.

Is it possible he qualified at the Farrell or something like that in 2019. I can't find a list of entrants?

It might be a more than fair comparison. 
Eierman's style might translate better to free.

I think he relies way too heavily on putting himself in situations that will result in 2 points for exposure being awarded to his opponent.
