Al Smith

Oh ok I for PH was there, but still in my mind and should be in his as well, if you are gonna win the AL SMITH, you are gonna have to beat several very good kids along the way, so 1 seed 2 seed shouldn't much matter

I guess that it could be like the Spartan Classic every year with blind draws and the pony express to get any updates.

At the end of the day, the goal of the seeding meeting should be to separate the two best wrestlers in the weight class.   For the sake of discussion, and this is what this forum is all about I believe, using the argument against a different tournament from last year to seed a wrestler, could the same argument be used to argue against the results of the same tournament but a different weight class?

 

For the record it does not matter to me, the better kids will eventually work their way through the tournament and beat kids that may have been a little over seeded.

you sure about that? just a glance at the brackets IL kids with high seeds that didn't qualify for state but did well at the harvest last year

 

isn't this is the second or third year they've seeded this 

He is sure about that

The seeding has been that way forever and it worked out...I was a returning champ and got the 2 seed to my good friend and buddy Taylor March as a returning Runner-up

 

show up and wrestle it wont matter if you are truly the best

 

Ya but look at you now you are an over weight man child that is barely holding on to your belt!

 

Just think how different life would have been if you were the 1 seed. WWF all the way!

Who is the 3 seed that MCKAJC is so worried about, from what I see McIntosh/Crary will be the 1/2 seeds, & I'm assuming Crary will be the 2 and this is why he's so upset, so what I wanna know who is the 3 seed that makes such a huge difference from 1 to 2?? I'm guessing Colza??maybe, but not completely sure???

upset?? lol... why would you assume I'm upset? my debate is that it's unfair to seed wrestlers ahead of others that have placed here based on another event. why would I have to be upset to believe that? it's by far the predominant standard of seeding

Technically, Head to Head is usually the first criteria used when seeding most events. This year's Info sheet has 2015 Head to Head, which I am sure is a typo that did not get updated.

Rasler at 26-0 knocked Crary out of the ticket round last year at state. Has yet to give up a takedown or reversal for the year.

Without seeing full lineups, most interesting weights based on above 4 seeds? 170..126? I'm sure a new thread will start in about an hour..just passing time.

I'm excited for 170, Baumgartner and Malone are both returning al smith runner ups from last year, and Goering and Swank both took 3rd. As talented as that group of 4 is, it's suprising there's only one state medal between them all. I know Swank and Malone looked good in the off season, even if Malones was limited.
