    Pretty solid picks through 174. I'm not sure about the three upper weights - they seem to be wide open. I like Caldwell at 149, considering he hasn't lost a college match in 3 years (obviously he hasn't been wrestling that entire time). And until someone finally beats McDonough, it's hard for me to pick against him. However, the seeding committee certainly didn't do him any favors by putting him in the same half of the bracket as Precin.

    I thought about Marion at 141 and Wright at 184, but couldn't bring myself to make the pick. I also think the NCAA tourney is alot harder on certain guys vs. duals. How Penn State young guns handle back to back to back tough matches is a big piece of their puzzle. Especially Taylor. I've question the competition level he has wrestled against this year. 157 at Big 10's wasn't as tough as many weights were.

    Very interesting pick on Perry, and I could absolutely see it happening. 184 is so wide open. On the flip side, I'll be shocked if anybody beats Oliver at 133. He's looked like he's in another league from everybody at that weight, but that's what makes the tournament fun.

    I'll throw mine in.

    125- McD over Robles
    133- Oliver over Long
    141- Kennedy over Thorn
    149- Dake over LeValley
    157- Taylor over Hall
    165- Burroughs over Caldwell
    174- No pick as I'm sure my pick has the power to screw Reader in some way
    184- Honeycutt over Perry
    197- Foster over Simaz
    Hwt- Rey over Rasing

    OW- McD
    Team Champ- Iowa
