    Looking like we have 9 in the dance. What are the predictions for individual seeds and then the team placement? Fun to be able to watch more than a couple weights the first day.

    I don't have a lot of expectations. Ideally, I want everyone to win 1 match.
    I hope Gomez, Parker, Degen, Colbray and Miklus make the round of 16 at worst.
    I hope for a 2-3 AA.

    Cassar is legit. Very athletic guy for that division.

    I think they all can and if I were to pick highest probable AA candidates, Parker, Degen and Miklus would be them. Seeding 133 is going to be a nightmare.

    I would guess..
    1. Miklus
    2. Colbray
    3. Degen
    4. Gomez
    5. Parker

    I also think they are all capable of a win. Excited to see the brackets!

    Matchups are going to be huge at Nationals. I think a lot of upsets are going to happen

    I would only switch Degan and Colbray. Degan seems to be peaking at the right time. Feel good where he is at even with that loss to Gfellar, 9 wrestlers at Nationals is going to make it so enjoyable this year.

    Degen is wrestling tough. I just think that Colbray has the bigger tool box. In the finals, Foster looked like a returning AA and Colbray was right with him. Really like how he's wrestling lately and dont think hes reach full potential either.

    Everyone is seeded now, which should make things interesting.

    guesses on our guys:

    Mackall ~20
    Gomez ~10. No lower than 14.
    Parker ~14
    Degen ~10
    Straw ~25-30
    Coleman ~25
    Colbray ~12
    Miklus ~6
    Gremmel ~22

    All of our guys should have atleast 1 winnable match, atleast on the backside.

    Gomez, Parker, Degen, and Colbray are going to need to win all of the matches they're favored in and win a 50-50 one in the rd 12.

    Will depend a lot on draws, a guy like Gomez can beat just about anyone on the right day.

    As great as this weekend was we're at the mercy of the draw at nationals since I doubt we have more than Willie seeded in the top 8. It doesn't dampen my spirits any and I know we will win some matches "we shouldn't" if we are in fact peaking at the right time.

    Of course upsets will change the course of the tournament like always, but the weights I'm most excited for are 133 and surprisingly, HWT. Hwt is a 3 horse race with Steveson, Cassar and White. Seeding there will be interesting. You can make a case a number if guys at 133 especially if Micic isn't 100%. Also 125 is interesting at the top. Rivera and Lee will get all the run, but Picc is undefeated and wrestling really well.

    At 125, I am interested to see how Jack Mueller of Virginia does against these guys.

    Gable won’t lose that match again. Cassar was lucky his takedown was so close to the end of the 3rd. I’m not even sure Steveson was sweating.

    Gable gets to cocky in his matches. This might slow him down a little. The Ali dance and stuff is a little disrespectful. But I agree, now that he realizes he is beatable, I think he takes it up another notch

    Not picking against Picc. He is getting better work in the room versus Fix than he will see on the mat. And his record reflects that
