I decided to look at what will happen if Gadson drops his first match, given the whole father passing away thing weighing on his mind and the fact that it'll be a tough opponent who will already have a pigtail win under his belt.
Conso 1: US Brandon Atwood, Purdue
Conso 2: #12 Brent Haynes, Missouri
Conso 3: US Nick Whitenburg, Eastern Michigan
R12: #7 Nathan Schiedel, Binghamton
Conso 5: #11 Blake Rosholt, Oklahoma State or #9 Jake Meredith, Arizona State
Conso 6: #5 Taylor Meeks, Oregon State
Even if Gadson isn't entirely there I am not too worried at anybody on that list until after he is past R12.
That sounds pretty good to me, although I would like to see Gadsen finish top 8 and sprinkle in a win or two for others you didn't mention. Gadson placing, another AA and at least 1-2 wins from everyone else would be a good tournament.
All top 8 finishers are AAs; that's how wrestling determines who makes AA status. I'd like to see Gadson win it all, and another couple AAs from there.
He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.
