I really like our chances at bringing 10 guys to Des Moines... Thoughts?
eff it I came here to do this and I am going to do it.
Ballweg will get it in, Moore will get in and if turd and nugget actually wrestle we should get all 10 in
I think Lofty will get in, if he ends up being the guy (which I think he will)
the other one is 149... who do we wrestle?
yes you did -
Kelly is the best of 2 turds
yeah - kelly is ranked about 30ish, and in the past about 33 wrestlers were in each bracket. so, 29 slots are allocated, and 4 others get in somehow. i would expect that kelly gets in unless he does drop a big terd on the mat at the B1Gs

The 4 others are the at-larges. The committee decides them after all the conference tournaments.
Is anyone else going to Big Ten's?
yeah i remember schlatter getting in as an at-large w/o competing in the B1Gs (deserved to try imo)
but - anyone else hear grumblings of Josh going at 149, and Grant at 184?
No where did you hear that? Josh Dziewa? Can't be any worse than what we have, he is just under sized. And putting Grant in at 84 is a huge mistake in my opinion. He has been competitive but has not won anything. At least turdhouse has beat some people. My only thoughts on it would be to teach him a lesson but I dont think it gives us the best chance at the N.C. However I will trust Brands on whatever he decides is right, but I will bitch later when it fails
Gotta go with Lofty in my opinion. If gambrall goes he would have to place top 5, Lofty has to get top 6 and even if he doesnt he would likely get an at-large bid, gambrall however would not....
HN on the josh thing - apparently kelly has a shoulder deal that is still in question, and josh can beat brody (so i read).
Grant - i read a hint a week back but nothing recent. either guy will be a headshaker when they walk off the mat imo
I think Josh will be a good wrestler once he gets his shot, he came out number 1 at his weight I believe
fyi - and great for the vikes
