Pre-season NCAA Contest
« on: October 29, 2015, 08:14:36 PM »
Any schmuck can take a look at the brackets come NCAA tournament time, get lucky, and pick a line-up that wins an internet contest (as proof of this, brycemus even beats me at it every 5-10 years or so).  However, it is the tru wrestling expert that can do pick the winners in OCTOBER (or early November as the case may be).  So, I am holding a contest this year to pick a line-up now and see how they do in March!  We will be using the TOM rankings found here: http://news.theopenmat.com/2015/10/tom-preseason-division-i-individual-college-wrestling-rankings-october-19-2015/

Here are the rules:

- You can pick one wrestler per weight.
- You get one guy ranked #1, one ranked #2, and so on through #8.  You can pick two other wrestlers from anywhere, in the rankings or not, #9-whatever.
- Your picks will be scored at the big show in MSG in March according to official NCAA Wrestling tournament scoring.
- If a wrestler changes weights during the year, they will still score, but must be picked now at the weight they are ranked at.  If they aren't ranked, make your best guess and I'll rule if there are any disputes.

Who really knows the sport?  Who has the crystal ball (or the horse-shoe wedged where the sun don't shine)?  Entry deadline is next Friday, 6 November by midnight.  I will post my line-up soon.  Good luck!

The mob is correct (nice work, mob!), Retherford is a 149 for the purposes of this contest.  You need a 141.
