Did you know that Escobedo is the defending National Champion at 125?

because you stupidly wondered if Escobedo has a chance to "pull the upset" on Nickerson.

A defending national champion upsetting someone is kind of a misnomer.

No he was saying Mickerson beating Esco was the upset.. Duh

Also, I think Esco gets knocked off before that in the quarters by Nicholson.

escobedo is the 3rd seed any way. Nickerson is the 2nd seed. i though the upest would be esco beat nickerson.

Hey Viratas, I guess your reading comprehension is suffering, duh.  Here are Red's dumb quotes:
<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>

"Also what if Escobedo beats Nickerson in the semis? is that possible?"

"yeah, thats what i said. what if Escobedo beat Nickerson? that is a fairly possible upset?"

just because he is the defending national champion, doesnt mean he is the contendor again. you can see that in many other weight classes. just look at 141. Jaggers is gonna have to upset some one to win another national title.

dont try to make me look like an idoit. i have a general idea of what i am talking about, although i am not always right.

only a dummy would call a #3 seed, who is the defending national champion at the weight class, beating the #2 seed an "upset".

DUHHHHH.

not a major up set but it would be an upset none the less. just going by the seeding.

not one intelligent wrestling fan would consider a defending national champion #3 seed beating the #2 seed a real "upset".

That is just a plain fact Red.  If you believe otherwise you are just putting on display your ignorance for all to see.

answer me this. why is he seeded number 3 is he was a national champion last year?

I'll tell you why, cuz last year was last year. It's in the past and doesn't count any more. Just because he is a defending national champion doesn't give him a free ride to the finals this year. He has to earn it like every other wrestler. If there is a better wrestler out there now, that some one thinks he is better than the defending national champion, but the defending national champion beats him. I would call that an upest.

I guess you couldn't comprehend the first time so I will say again:
