It is also correct that many red shirt decisions have not yet been made, despite what fans may think. Open tournaments are a big factor here in many cases.
Next EIWA rankings are due out in mid-December. In the meantime, IT'S NOVEMBER!!!!"
*** As JJH said the purpose is to give us something to talk about and look forward to. John also said only frosh who have already wrestled this year are included in these rankings, hence Grey is not included, while Beckman who is not a frosh but redshirted last year is.

Thus, if you have a situation where a returning wrestler might get ranked, even though the frosh likely will be the starter, perhaps the coach lists the returning guy as the starter.
Also, if you have a situation where Meys and Diekel are your likely starters at 184, but won't get ranked as highly as Nate Brown, you want Brown to be ranked. I suppose it's like Dave Berry wrote about the problem of having to write a 400-word column every week. Its "hard, hard, hard." Early season rankings are "hard, hard, hard."
Hey, I'm not kidding. Danny Mitchell now is 100%. Well, on we go!
