It's possible I have it wrong.  I did it quickly.   Here is what I have for Okie ST.

133 Fix - Below seed
149 Boo - Even
157 Sheets Above (related to Mike Sheets?)
165 Whitlike Above
174 Plott - Even
184 Geer  Above
197 Ferrari  Above
285 Harris  Above

Fortunately for Iowa, those that went below seed, did not fall very far so they maintained their lead, but still Tom is a bit upset I'll bet.

Maybe we used different definitions.

The definition is obvious for a wrestler who placed. I hadn't heard of a standard definition for wrestling above seed for one who didn't place, so I made up my own definition. I said he wrestled above seed if his two losses were to wrestlers seeded better than him.

I just thought about it some more and decided a better definition would require him also to beat at least one opponent he was supposed to lose to. By that definition, OKST had 2 even, 6 above, 1 below.

That's a fair way to do it. 

I decided if a guy was seeded at 23 and lost his first  two matches, he's one of the first 8 to go.  With 32 seeds, that would be the 24-32 seeds should be the first to go.  So he wrestled below seed.

If a guy was ranked 12 and finished just shy of AA, then I said that was even because he would have been in the 9-12 finishing range. 

If a 15 seed lost 2 straight, below seed.  If he won one and lost 2, below seed because he's going out with the 16 worst seeds.  If he lost, then won 2 and lost, even.   I hope that makes sense. 

The way the bracket is set up, first people to lose 2 are 8 wrestlers.   Then next set is another 8, then 4 then 4, and then you have the top 8. 

I just saw your revised post.   Indeed I did miss Mastro, I looked for OKST and did not see it at 125, but there he is and was above his seed for sure.   That's why you are the rocket scientist and I'm not.

P.S.  Thanks to RYou for posting a link to the brackets. They're not available at Trackwrestling any longer.

N,

Just go to Trackwrestling.com, go to Events, go to Search events, put in NCAA for the name and last week for the time and it should be there. 

I like the pdf better but they are not finished.

Any predictions for Valencia of ASU.   I think he tanks by the semi's.  He has promise when recruited but has never lived up to it.  I just don't see him as a legit #2.  I think he AA's.  It would be nice for him to be successful but he has been erratic over the last few years.

mspart

Yes, you heard it here first.   I predicted that he would tank.  From #2 to #8 and didn't even fight for #7, forfeited out.

Hey, that works. But I like RYou's link better. I can scroll to all ten weights without having to click a bunch of selections.

Ahem, they are not available because Flo doesn't want them to be available.  Track used to update the brackets after each bout including consolations. Flo never activated the consolations tab. Clear evidence how they are going to try and migrate it all to their website and block access if no fee is paid.

By then I had given up.

There was a row of buttons at the top.  That is how you could see the consolation bracket.   I have tried to post a picture of this below.

Yup, but that button wasn't working Thursday and Friday.  I just gave up and went to the NCAA page, though they didn't do real time updates.  I like track because the clue you into the upcoming bouts and mat number which makes it easier to switch mats on the TV.

Unlike Flo, that service is frrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
