Tis a good thing. No effort since they are ranked to make the trip.

It's one thing when they can do it all by the numbers but when there's any subjectivity to it it becomes kind of stupid to waste that much time on it. Seeding is meant to separate OUTSTANDING individuals. How can the entire bracket be outstanding with regard to each other?

Where is this written in the rules about seeding?

Ha.  You tell me then what the purpose of seeding is.

My guess is if it is even mentioned in the rules, would be to reward wrestlers who are deemed superior and to separate them from other accomplished wrestlers untill they have advanced as per their seed.

I dont think we do... I think there is a good benefit to seeding all 33.

By seeding all 33 we can can avoid some first round match ups of conference foes for instance.

You love to argue I get it but you had questioned the definition of seeds and provided your thoughts which were exactly what I wrote.

More than likely, seediing 33 will closely follow the season end RPI rankings, then adjusted for conference upsets and RPI 34+ that won their way to the tournament.

Now we are going to have contests as to who will be the lowest seeded wrestler to place.
