157: Better Living Through Kemerer-stry

No changes on the top half, as the convalescent Jason Nolf gets the benefit of the doubt and Michael Kemerer took care of business as he typically does. 

Elsewhere, BJ Clagon and John Van Brill slide down the rankings after respective losses to Garett Hammond and Kyle Langenderfer. Hammond and Langenderfer remain unranked, however, showing off the depth of the weight class, which just got stronger thanks to two-time All-American Solomon Chishko bumping up from 149 pounds and claiming the #16 spot, forcing former #20 Coleman Hammond out of the rankings for now.
