Why is Dan Yates getting so much love at 165?  He's a 3x qualifier and he had 11 losses last year at 174.  I assume it's because he'll be at a lower weight?

Also, does Steinhaus ranked at 184 mean he's progressing well with his recovery?

I find the idea of Lofthouse as #2 as slightly laughable...I mean if he can bring his bow to the match I'd maybe be on board with this

Does seem strange, yet he's the second highest returning AA.

Not like TOM would be different from the rest in this regard, but it will (very likely) be Joe Colon at 133 for UNI, not Levi Wolfensperger, which should immediately up his ranking by a bunch at that weight class.

In theory, but maybe not either. As far as Lofthouse ... highest returning AA behind the Ruth. Pretty simple with preseason rankings.

I get why JB...it still is just hard having had to deal with a bad EL for a few matches a year.  for him to be this high despite a 2X AA it's just well as an Iowa fan hard to believe

Steinhaus is ranked on pre-season as wrestling has not started. If he misses two weeks, he will come out or if we confirm his actual return date.

Right now I am just trying to conceive of a world that Stieber doesn't win a national title this year. Along with Maple and Ruth he is almost a Grade A lock to win outside of pulling a McD.

Crap, I just realized I haven't made my playlist for my radio show tonight.

When was the last time Oregon State had three guys ranked in the top three at the same time? Been awhile.
