I'm with Rise on this. I do think that Struve and Kongo are on very different trajectories right now, but that their actual standings aren't that far off.
I actually reacted similarly to you, SE, when I saw the article. But I think I'm mostly reacting to the fact that I thought Struve earned a step up.
IMO the main problem is that Struve earned a step up in competition by beating Stipe whereas Kongo didn't impress against an unranked Jordan. But, beyond that, their recent competition is fairly similar. They both beat Barry, I'm not sure how I put Peewee in this, though Struve has a win over Lavaar which I put higher than Kongo's win over Meathead but only very slightly. Before that, both have some solid wins and then losses to ranked competition.
