Interesting that Hall goes right to #7 when he is 0-1 and yet Meyer who beat him remains back at #12.
They are really giving him credit for his unattached wins and not penalizing him for the loss to Meyer
Doctor, with all due respect, how do you weigh Hall's blasting through the Southern Scuffle equally with a close loss to Meyer in his official debut? Hall rag-dolled Crutchmer; dispatched the tough kid from Lehigh, etc. in scuffle.
Meyer, like so many Iowa wrestlers, is strong, tough, defensive, strategic. He's experienced. Hall was probably amped-up for his coming out party, and may have gotten too hyped, which is exhausting. He had a lousy match. I expect Hall beats Meyer in 9 out of 10 matches.
Ranking involves the whole body of work. I expect Hall will move up from #7, don't expect much more from Meyer, but that is my subjective judgement.
