Okay so I have been wanting to update the rankings for about a month but was waiting for Gary to post the videos of IL States so I can remember who beat who and how but I can't wait any longer. I have talked to a few people and have enough info now to make some changes. Once the footage if posted I might make a couple slight changes if needed.
Here are the updated rankings, I'll keep the rankings on this board as is for a couple days so you can look at them and see exactly what changes were made if you want to.

Its a good thing rankings don't mean a whole lot, cause if this was to be used for seeding criteria in a tournament I would be screwed considering some of the guys ranked have never beat me. But its a good way of stirring something up.

As I explained to Kirk via pm, the way I have always done my rankings is; if you beat someone ranked above you, you shall be put 1 spot above the person that you beat. Assuming that the person you beat wasn't just totally wasted from a previous match. The reason that I was moved up/put on the rankings is because I beat Josh Wickre (previously ranked #3) last month in South Dakota. Josh Wickre was put onto the rankings last year when he beat Heath McDonald (who was ranked #3 at that time and is again after beating me and Josh in SD). Heath has convincing wins over Luke Stanley, Lee Culpepper, Me, Yosef, Josh Wickre (3 flash wins and 1 time Josh beat him), Brian Robling, Scott Harris, ect. All the guys I mentioned he has flashed except IIRC Lee slowed him down. I am not playing favorites at all or trying to move myself higher than I should be, which may be what has happened actually I am just using the same formula I have always used which is "beat someone, be ranked above them" with most recent wins being the main factor. For all the Eastern Midwest Pullers, I do plan on going to Unified's and the Chicago Tourney in Oct. as far as tourneys in your area go, and I do believe Heath is planning on going to Unified's and KY Muscle if you want a crack at him (of course I can't guarantee that he will be there).
14 State Titles, 2 National Titles (left hand 165 lbs. 2014 AAA Open Class, left hand 176 lbs. 2015 USAA Pro Class).
Two time runner up at Nationals in the 154 lbs class.
Have competed in 20 different states - 3 countries.
