    .... and why is Schultz ranked over him on P4P and Heavyweight rankings for this scholastic season?

    How many matches did Kerk wrestle this past season?  

    Schultz won the Walsh Ironman, Reno TOC & Doc Buchanan (all of this tournaments repeatedly), was undefeated (again), was a 4x CO state champion (never lost to a CO wrestler).    He has a case to be the #1 ranked HWT

    Cassar would be replaced by S. Nevills the following year and you will then have Kerkvliet and Schultz in the mix.

    Don’t surprised if Schultz takes an Oly RS this upcoming year, then a regular RS the year after.  Perhaps even a greyshirt in between.

    He signed with ASU, right?

    Yes, but don’t expect to see him there for a couple of years.  With the current crop of young HWTs, it makes sense for him to take time to work non-Greco aspects of his game

    Might as well throw Grant Leeth in the lineup too, he'll be about 36 by the time he runs out of eligibility. Plus his replacement (Mauller) is the 4 seed at NCAAs, so he could be riding the bench anyway. Makes perfect sense!

    Or he could be cutting to 141, when Eierman (possibly) takes an Oly redshirt....

    I want to say this too.   I love the idea of Division I wrestling in Texas, but I think if we were to try and add wrestling in the Long Star state we'd need to put it at a University that isn't too far away from nearby Oklahoma.  If for nothing else, recruiting purposes.  It amazes me that (arguably) the best wrestler in the nation right now, Bo Nickal is from Texas.  It makes one wonder if the Longhorns or the Aggies or the Minors or the Raiders had a wrestling program if we'd have seen him at one of those schools.   Varsity wrestling in Texas is twenty years old and even counting private school wrestling, it's still fairly young.  Makes you wonder the amount of talent we've missed out on because it took so long to get wrestling into Texas.  

    JT-

    I mentioned in my post U of North Texas, rather than UT, aTm or TT.  The reasons for this are:

    1.  They already have a club team, coached by Andre Metzger.  I coached a youth club team in Argyle, and he/they used our room for practice.  Not sure if you’d want Andre as the face of a new program (he’s insane), but he definitely has the passion the get one started  

    2.  Denton’s proximity to Oklahoma (45 min from the state line), DFW and the panhandle (5 hrs away).  Fertile recruiting ground 

    3.  UNT’s growing meteorically, relatively easy to get into a far less expensive than the other TX D1 schools

    4.  Downtown Denton has been labeled “little Austin”, and there’s a reason for that. 

    5. The chances the UT or aTm get wrestling are somewhere between 0-0.1%.  

    6.  Wouldn’t help UNT that none of the Denton ISD high schools have wrestling, however most all other Denton CO, Tarrant CO & Collin CO ISD’s have it.  Most of those many dozen high schools easily have over 2k kids, with a lot of over 3k (Allen has over 6k).  Lots of kids to choose from

    Don't have the stats in front of me and don't even have the year, but the year Tirapelle won 149 was a brutal bracket.

    Again, don't have the stats so don't know how the numbers compare to the above comparisons.

    Only 1 other in that weight won a national title - Jared Lawrence.  Also had M Zadick, Dave Esposito, Jared Frayer.  All very tough and multiple time AA’s, but not at the level of the ‘08 149, ‘94 158 or ‘19 133

    Obviously, if Geo, Fla, Al. Kent, Tenn restarted, then, With Mo (and maybe Tex A&M) you could again have an SEC tourn

    Don’t forget that Auburn & LSU had teams as well.  

    My top 10 would be:

    1.  Syracuse (duh)

    2.  Notre Dame (f’ing cheatin’ Lou Holtz )

    3.  Washington (duh)

    4.  UCLA (how easy would it be to recruit here?)

    5.  Colorado (we need a real D1 school here)

    6.  North Texas (lots of reasons for this)

    7.  Idaho St (screw BSU)

    8.  Florida (see UCLA recruiting)

    9.  Every other SEC school

    10.  Kansas St (screw kU)
