On Purdue, I think they get in to top ten in the BIG tournament.

2 maybe 3 to NCAAs.  Good goals for the Boilers

I think they get 6 or 7 to NCAAs, especially with all of the qualifiers the Big Ten gets. Welch, Limmex, Morrisey, Lydy, Brunner, and Streck should all go with decent chances for Thornton, Parriott and Lyon

That's a lot,  6 or 7.   Anyway 5 would is realistic once I look at it.

According to wrestlestat rankings , Welch, Thonton, Lydy, Bruner and Streck are in based on ranked above 33.   But so many are close, Big 10 performance along with quota distribution will be huge.    Probably,   the only 3 that would get saved by wildcard in case of bad BIG tournament would be Welch, Streck and maybe Lydy.

Here's rankings in wrestletstat:

125- Welch  #21

133 Thonton #28

141 Limex #48

149 Nash #249

157 Parriot #50

165 Morrisey #49

174 Lydy #26

184 Lyon #49

197 Bruner #32

285 Streck #23

I'm not a fan of wrestlestat, those rankings are way off what they are on any other ranking site, those 3 plus Limmex and possibly Brunner and Morrisey would be saved by the wild card. Lydy is definitely saved by the wildcard, he has a lot of good wins this year. Anyway this shakes out, I'm really looking forward to seeing how the Boilers do

At least Wrestlestat is based on a RPI/Geinius formula.   I was surprised to see Limmex ranked  high in Flo , but #48 on  wrestlestat RPI.    Limmex at 23-12,  doubt he gets a wildcard.  Good wins  are Chad Red and Moore from Virgina Tech, and some bad losses.

Morrisey is 20-15,  and is best win is Schiefer from Princeton or Fogart from ND State, and plenty of bad losses.  These guys are bubble guys for tournament.   No way he gets wildcard love.   

Bruner is 19-7,   He has about 5 wins against  bubble guys in the 20-30 range.     I could see him as a wildcard.   No really bad losses, closest is the Northwestern guy that cradled him with the quick pin.   He should be seeded within the quota at Big 10s.  I like his chances.
