    Default NCAA Coaches Panel Rankings

    Here is where our guys are after the second coaches panel rankings:
    125- Midkiff currently isn't earning an automatic qualifier spot for the B12. He still has a chance to do so, but that would likely require him to win out, with #11 Alex Mackall (ISU), #20 Danny Vega (SDSU), and #27 Sidney Flores (AFA) all coming up on the schedule. He has already tech falled Vega, but that is his only quality win. The B12 has Picc (OK St), Mackall, Vega, Flores, and Schwarm (UNI) all in position to earn AQ spots for the conference, with Midkiff and Jace Koelzer (UNC) still having a shot. A win for Midkiff over Flores, and then subsequent losses for Midkiff, could take Flores' AQ spot away and be not enough for Midkiff to earn a spot.
    133- Cam is a lock to make the tournament and #10 in the panel, now it is all about seeding. The B12 has 8 guys with a good shot at earning an AQ spot, with Cam, Bridges (Wyo), Lamont (UVU), Schwartz (UNC), Madrigal (OU), Small (ISU), Wittcraft (OK St), and Skudlarczyk (UNI) all looking likely. Cam has an upcoming match with Small that is a must win. A win there, and he is likely the 3 seed at worst and would have a path of a Skudlarczyk type and then Bridges. A loss, and he is probably in the 4/5 seed and would have to go through Lamont in the semis. This weight is incredibly deep and tough to seed in the B12. Zach Price from SDSU is #33 and a really tough freshman and has a decent shot at getting the B12 another spot.
    141- Drogemueller won't earn an AQ spot for the B12. Demas (OU), Parker (ISU), Hone (OK St), Blockhaus (UNI), and Lloren (FSU) are the only guys who look likely to earn the AQ. Peterson from AFA or Carlson from SDSU could sneak a spot too. Wins against Air Force and SDSU would dramatically alter Drogemuller's seed and could get him as high as the 6 seed, which would be big.
    149- Van Maanen is not currently earning an AQ spot for the B12. Lewallen (Ok St), Thomsen (UNI), Pohlmeyer (SDSU), Degen (ISU), and Alirez (UNC) all seem to be locks. Alirez needs to come back from injury soon though. #31 Butler (OU), Gaxiola (FSU), and #33 Jensen (Wyo) are fringe guys who still could sneak a spot for the conference.
    157- Franek's tough schedule and body of work have him as a lock for an AQ and NCAA tournament birth. His #25 coaches panel ranking is an absolute joke though. He has wins over #24 Jacob Wright and #15 Justin Thomas, and no bad losses. Now, it is all about securing the 2nd seed in the B12 tourney and getting seeded as high as possible at NCAAs. The B12 is looking like Carr (ISU), Franek, Thomas (OU), Sheets (Ok St), and Wright (FSU) are all safe bets to secure a spot. #32 Krueger (Wyo) has a shot as well.
    165- Fogarty wasn't in the first coaches panel because he sat out for 30 days, but he is a lock for an AQ and NCAA birth. His 320 ranking is an absolute joke too. He has pinned #18 Oster twice, beaten #17, and lost to nobody ranked lower than #10. Assuming no slip ups vs ISU, AFA, or SDSU, He is the #1 or #2 seed for the B12 tournament. Fogarty, Wittlake (Ok St), and Cook (SDSU) are the only locks for an AQ. #26 Menewether (AFA), #27 Kiussus (WV), and Straw (ISU) all have a chance to sneak a spot too. Kemp (FSU) and Yant (UNI) cracked the RPI too.
    174- I don't know who NDSU's starter is, but they won't earn an AQ spot for the conference. Steiert (UNI), Montanana (OU), Hastings (Wyo), Bastian (UVU), Smith (Ok St), and Colbray (ISU) are all locks; with #26 Martino (FSU) having a chance to get spots too.
    184- Cressell won't get an AQ. Lujan (UNI), Carlson (SDSU), and Montalvo (OU) are the only locks. #27 Clothier (UNC), #25 Coleman (ISU), and #31 Samuelson (Wyo) all could lock one up too.
    197- Eaton is not currently earning an AQ. He has matches with Shapiro (ISU), Sloan (SDSU), and Traxler (Stanford) upcoming. If he can beat Shaprio and one of the other two, he could earn an AQ. Right now, the B12 has Adams (WV), Geer (Ok St), Sloan (SDSU), and Woodley (OU) as locks. Strong chance Orndorff (UVU), Seeley (UNC) and Buchanon (Wyo) earn spots too. #31 Shapiro and Eaton are the fringe guys who can still sneak a spot out.
    HWT- Metz is in. Orndorff (UVU), Hokit (FSU), Gremmell (ISU), Isley (UNI), Robertson (UNC), Andrews (Wyo), and Metz all should be in. Ngati from West Virginia is the only other guy who can get the conference another spot.

    Overall, Sykora, Franek, Fogarty, and Metz are in great shape. Outside of them, it doesn't look like anyone from NDSU will earn the B12 a qualifying spot. Eaton and Midkiff can still do so, but it will take a good closing stretch. The good news is the B12 is pretty deep this year and guys like Midkiff, JVM, 174, and Eaton will have a legitimate chance to steal a spot come tourney time.

    Over on Flo, they have Weber as the projected starter at 174, 184, 197, and 285 vs. Air Force.

    I'm guessing 320 ranking was meant to be #20 ranking. He should be in the top-15, maybe close to top-10.
