And just for fun it appears you picked Retherford for best wrestler. His schedule has been quite weak with only beating laike Gardner. Dean has had a tougher schedule. So does the tougher schedule argument only work for best freshman or only when it fits your side?

If you look at who has had the tougher schedule it basically ends the argument

Ok what if Massa had beat IMAR instead of Isaac Jordan. Then who wins?

Ok, what if Suriano beat IMar, Sanderson and Bruno Samartino in a steel cage match.  Who wins.

It seems to me it is pointless to ask for people to give their opinion on something like this and then argue their opinion is wrong.

I don't agree with that.

I just asked that to point to the fact it's not just tougher schedule. There are certainly other factors at play

One good win versus a body of work so far this season is our current logjam

It's More fun to disagree and discuss it then for me to go on the Iowa vs OSu thread and say  "I agree with your picks they seem very thought out"  I'm able to learn more and have more fun by saying "Although I would favor Rogers over the Bull, because I think he would have trouble finishing and Rogers would hit a Rogers-like move.

I don't want to go off on a rant here, but . . .

Its one thing to argue "Nickal is better than Dean" - or Gilman will beat Suriano - because we will find out who is right and who is wrong - but when it comes to who is your favorite - or who are you most pleased or disapointed in - that seems to me to be so subjective - there can never be any real resolution.

If you think Nickal is better than Dean (which by the way would make you a nutty person) and Nickal wins - you get bragging rights (will never happen).  But if you are more disappointed in Casey Kent this season  - and I am more disapointed in Myles Martin - its not resolvable - and in my humble opinion - not worth arguing over.

That is my opinion - but of course I could be wrong!

You are wrong and here's why...  ;)

I actually agree with Valencia it's just the adamancy in which he said it like there isn't any other option because he has had a tougher schedule, to which I disagreed.

Drew Hughes for getting major street cred for basically just riding double boots and laying on people.
