All 10 of my brackets are perfect so far, but we'll see if that stays true after tomorrow.  My NCAA basketball bracket is perfect as well.  No real surprises in either sport.
I am the way, the truth, and the life.

You rival ViseGrip in taking everything on the internet seriously and personally.  The internet isn't real, just relax and have fun with it.
You just dont like being reminded of that you make as****e comments all too frequently.

one National tournament does not a career predict
Maybe..heres my contentions after a cursory glance.
Nico will do better than 5th, McD wont win
 Ramos is 0-4 against Stieber, only someone who is biased views that as a coin flip.
Dont see Durso placing.
Dierienger at 3rd would shock me.
Dylan Alton losing to Walter Peppelman is not happening.  Dylan not placing would also shock me.
Josh Condon is not placing.
Either is Blake Stauffer.

If Penn State gets third you can have my sig for the rest of my life.

Some ballsy picks, and theyre yours to make, but lets not say any amount of number crunching lead you to many of these decisions.  We all are biased to a degree.

I don't get your sig, but I'm guessing you're shocked?
Yeah I blew Condon and Stauffer.  Durso got robbed or he would have been an AA, but yeah you were right as well.  Did you realize he had the  longest winning streak going into Nationals of any wrestler who was not undefeated?  I guess I made a big jump to conclusion that would continue on.  I was dead wrong on that.

I'm shocked that Dierienger got 3rd beating 1 seeded wrestler(12).  I'm shocked Dylan Alton had to wrestle James Green in the round of 12.  I'll defer to your judgement on Penn State from now on though.  You seem to have that team more/less pegged.

He doesn't know how to admit defeat. Great quality in a wrestler; terrible quality in a forums poster.

I think you two just stop fighting and start listening to me. 

I've said all season that Telford was overrated and will not AA.  That Cody Yohn will AA and that Kokesh is a title contender which he showed.
I predicted Iowa to finish 4th or worse, McDonough to go down in flames, and Ballweg, Moore, Burak to make early exits.  And for fun I even threw in an extra at 149- Houdashelt over Alton.

You're really going to tout your ability because Telfords knee got destroyed?  Burak making an early exit?  He was an unseeded true freshman and made the round of 12, so you were simply wrong about that one.
