James:
I realize I am just an over-optimistic fan, but based on their performance at the Big Tens, I think that you may have under-estimated 149, 174, 184, and 197. - JUST MY OPINION! - AT LEAST I HOPE SO!!!!

We all know Pat's predictions:

125- Champ
133- CHAMP!!
141- Champ
149- Champ
165- Champ
174- CHAMP!
184- CHAMP
197- CHAMP
285- CHAMP!!!!!

Team- CHAMPIONS!!!!

Oh, and at 157 Jake Ryan gets a special dispensation into the tournament through an obscure NCAA rule that allows the son of a former All American to wrestle at nationals if his father is also his coach and his team has a national qualifier at every weight class but his. Of course, he ends up as the CHAMP!

Well, I believe I am being fairly realistic here!

The TOM article had Micah 4th at 149, and it had BO, Myles, and Moore all at 2nd place in their classes.

My prediction above agrees with James on all other weights, and the only one that I am partially wrong with TOM is Bo Jordan's class, and I do believe that a healthy Bo can win the championship. - The question is whether Bo is completely healthy and fully recovered from issues that he has been fighting all year.

I completely agree with TOM that Myles and Kollin are big-time gamers, and anything can be possible with them.

If I were to pick one Freshman this year to win a title, it would be Kollin Moore at 197. Yes, I know he has an incredibly hard road going through Pfarr and Cox. But, he has worked hard all year and I have to believe he has used the two weeks between BIG TENS and the NCAA tourney to prepare for that. As I recall, he only lost to Cox by one point when they wrestled early this year. And, he solidly beat Pfarr at the Big Tens. - I think that was a giant break-thru win for him! - Plus he trains daily with Kyle Snyder and Myles Martin. - STEEL SHARPENS STEEL!!!!

If I recall, I believe all evening "prime time" sessions will be covered on ESPN.
