2010-2011 Draft Thoughts
« on: October 19, 2010, 12:16:52 am »
Any??? Props to Yomama and Visegrip for going with 2 freshman Seibert and Perry. Skittles picks are sick!!!

Yep Skittles is locked on...I about had a fit when I saw he picked Nauman....he was on my roster last year and I really became attached to that bonus point machine.

Taylor was also drafted as a RS frosh though....Steiber was the only true frosh as of yet....I think.

Hopefully we can get on a roll tomorrow. As long as everyone can pay attention to the draft, we should be able to get some more rounds done than today.
If you want respect, be respectful.

I know it was my first time but I thought it moved rather smoothly, better than I had expected.  Huge thanks to Drooke, V and Akin and anyone else who helped in tracking results, texting people, et al. 

Can't wait to get finished up and put a team on the mat.

my only thought is a lot of dirty words directed at a holier than thou person who will remain nameless because I don't want Cowboy to get embarrassed.

Im kinda hacked at Drooke for stealing Ruggirello from me and at Yak for that Kerber larceny.

Jus sayin'


Oh yeah... and at Skittles for stealing Benifiel!


All of you should be ashamed.

if you like kerber i'll trade him to you.   outside of mcdonough and taylor and the altons i don't have a problem with trading anybody on my team.  of course whichever alton redshirts is available as well.   ;)

Im long on 165 and you're long on 141 so what do you think of.....

My Hatchett 165 and Nelson 141 for your Kerber 165 and Diaz 141 perhaps.

vice    i always like talking trades but think i will hold off on your offer.  i don't see how this would help me.  just using tom's rankings, which i admit are not the be and end all but those rankings have diaz #7 and nelson 16 and  kerber #7   hatchett  14.  huh? 
being from and coaching in lancaster pa i have known and have watched fittery since he was little as he was local.  unfortunately, i only have taylor @57 and would not trade taylor.   if i had another 57 lber i would throw kerber in and take something very minor back but at this point i don't see us matching up well.   i thought maybe you knew kerber personally or he was from your area or something like that and that is why you wanted him.

I only went with Diaz because I thought you wanted to hold onto the other 2. I was trying to match up where we both had 3 in a weight.

Embarrasingly I have to admit I didn't read any rules before the draft and didn't realize I needed to factor in pin and tech bonus until halfway in the draft when Drooke started calling wrestlers bonus machines. Betting on Steiber to still take care of that for me. High expectations.....

Again, gotta give serious props to Drooke for keeping me updated when I had no access. I will def buy you beers one day or get ya back somehow.

It's all good Yomama.....I'm not that nice of a guy though or else I would have sent you these links to look at   8)  ....but now that the draft is over I will give you something to think about for next season.

The link is the NWCA home page, once on the home page click on the "NWCA stat tracker" and scroll down to "college individual results".

http://www.nwcaonline.com/nwcawebsite/home.aspx

When you get to the college individual results page you can change the filters....change the year to last season 2009/10 .... and change Top Count to 150...change Statistics to wins .... and Division to Division 1.

That will give you some great info .... but you can also dial it in a different way by making the changes mentioned above with ONE exception.... Change Statistics to TotalTeamPtsScored....and VOILA .....awesome fantasy wrestling assist.

Let me know what you think bro.  Also Steiber was a great pick...it is gonna be fun in the top half of the big ten at 125 this season.

hey drooke     i know you were sharing the link with yomama but thanks for the link.   it's nice of you to share it as it is just interesting and fun to look at the numbers and stats.  i can appreciate you keeping the tidbit of knowledge under your hat till after the draft as i would have too, but it's nice of you to share a neat website with us now.   it's these things that the experienced fantasy players in all the fantasy sports have and use to make a winning season.   again thanks
