Big 10 Pick'em
« on: March 05, 2013, 11:48:59 AM »
Same shit different day ... do a Big 10 pick'em based off the pre-seeds?  I know it's imperfect because things could change in the official seeding meeting, but it's tough to get all the picks in 12 hours before the actual tourney starts.  I'm thinking select 1-8 and two 9+ or unseeded guys.  can't double up weights or seeds, you guys know the drill.  Anyone else in?
here's the link for the preseeds.

I have no idea ... I was hoping this would make him show up so that I wouldn't have to run it.  I mean I can, but it will be difficult since I will be drunk all weekend in NoDak

You beat me to it.  I'll score the contest.

Your fantasy team must consist of:

*  Ten wrestlers
*  One wrestler per weight class
*  One wrestler for each of the pre-seed positions, 1 through 8
*  Two wrestlers with a pre-seed position 9 or lower, or unseeded
*  Actual team points scored by your wrestlers throughout the tournament are credited to your fantasy team.

Post your picks in this thread, and please list them in ascending order starting with 125.

Based on preseeds?  Will anything change when seeds come out on Friday?
Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

This was incredibly hard for me as I wanted to pick some Hawkeyes, but I honestly don't know that any of them finish above their seed.  I ended up choosing one, and I can almost guarantee he doesn't finish ahead of his seed...but I couldn't have a Big 10 team without a Hawkeye.

125-3   J Delgado IL
133-7   C Dardanes MN
141-US S Rodrigues IL
149-2   D Ness MN
157-4   J Green Neb
165-1   D Taylor PSU
174-6   J Blanton  IL
184-5    E Lofthouse UI
197-9   A Polizzi NU
Hwt-8   B Apland MI
