So the only one who picked anyone named "Stieber" to win was buckgrad80, atOSU guy who picked the entire tOSU line up to win it. No one else even mentioned a Stieber. All I can conclude is that the wrestling IQ of this group is lacking. Have none of you paid attention this year at all? hmmm?

When you can only pick one #1 and you have guys like Ed Ruth and David Taylor it isn't overly surprising.  If this were a contest to pick the winners, I'm sure both Steibers would have been on most lists, but this contest is about identifying value. 

AND APPARENTLY I SUCK AT IT!

While I would admit to being a bit of a homer for tOSU, I would disagree with the previous statement made by Okie!

The NCAA Most Dominant Award calculation has been led by Logan Stieber all year. - Why would you have not wanted to pick him as your #1 instead of a David Taylor or Ed Ruth.

In my estimation, Logan Stieber was most likely to pin all of his competition, except for Ramos, and thus generate the most points for your team.

Now granted, all three are NCAA champs, but I picked Logan because he had the most bonus point potential and I felt like he was a lock to repeat as champ at 133 :).

Joint Doc:

For the record, all of those tOSU guys I picked met or exceeded their seeds, except two. - Campo was seeded 4th and got 5th, and while I had picked Tavenello as a 10th seed (who would have done awesome, but was scratched to protect his red-shirt) Kosta K replaced him and didn't win a match as a backup in probably the toughest and deepest class of the tournament.

When you need to take a reach with a lower seed, I tend to go with the ones I know that have a little more than they might have shown.

Let's face it, all of these Big Ten teams beat up on each other all year, and many of them are much better than their records might show on the surface. But when you are facing the best in the country night in, and night out, you are going to absorb some tough losses.

Obviously, as I chose him, I think Ruth was the pick simply because of the presence of Ramos (and the fact that Dardanes was available as a #7 at that weight).  I also didn't see Steiber as the kind of lock Ruth was (again, because of Ramos).  Ramos is damn good and you never know what can change in a year.  It was close.  That is for sure.  I would have liked to have any of them on my team, but choices had to be made.

AND I MADE ALL THE WRONG ONES!

I took Dardanes because I knew there was NO way he was gonna do worse than 4th as a 7 seed. It was that simple. That meant Striebler was not an option for me. That left me choosing between Ruth & Taylor and I am sorry but I really dislike Ruth.
