Annual Pick 'em Contest
« on: March 14, 2021, 01:17:48 PM »
Select 10 wrestlers, but all must be different weights, the first 8 picks must be seeded 1-8 the last 2 picks can be selected from any seed below 8, But only 1 wrestler per weight and each wieght must have 1 wrestler.

Tio illustrate here is mine (with seed #)
125 Lee (1)
133 RBY (2)
141 Red (8)
149 Berge (9)
157 Moore (10)
165 Lewis (4)
174 Starocci (3)
184 Poznanski (6)
197 Elam (7)
285 Cassioppi (5)

Perhaps it makes more sense if I list them by seeds

1 Lee
2 RBY
3 Starocci
4 Lewis
5 Cassioppi
6 Poznanski
7 Elam
8 Red
9 Berge
10 Moore

Berge & Moore have 9 & 10 seeds but that was just coincidence, As I said the last 2 pics just have to be seeded below 8 and be in different weights
Scoring will be by NCAA tournament rules.

"any seed below 8", meaning 9-33

Outside of knowing Steveson is at Minn and Hidlay, Mizzoo, I wasn't paying attention to where they wrestled, just went by seeds.

Now that you bring it up, I should probably repick.

I'm notoriously bad at these things.

Spencer Lee will win I think . Gable may win, from B1G tourney it sure looks like it.   The rest I just don't know.  Haven't kept up enough this year.

First glance suggests you won it.
