I agree on juniors as well. I think a lot of seniors are already on their campuses, donít want to get injured, etc. not all but there are obvious names missing and a lot of brackets only had a couple ranked kids. In response to a previous poster, I do think Fargo used to be tougher - not because kids used to be better but because there were way fewer options to prove yourself on the national stage so Fargo was the Mecca. Now you have several top notch national level tournaments to choose from. I wonder if kids now who have grown up with all these top notch tournaments view Fargo the same as some of us older guys who grew up wrestling in a different era? Still a very tough tournament and itís a grinder when you hit that round of 16. But if you look at the stats I posted from Pinfall there was only an average of about 4 state champs per weight Granted some states place winners are better than others champs. I will say 182 was an awesome bracket with several top ranked guys going at it Just my thoughts.
