  1. Why didn't you say so in the first place?   It wasn't on page one, where a person would expect the topic to be.  Especially the day before the event.

     

    You saw I posted and decided to be dismissive again, like before. Still can't figure out how to sew on a MAC logo?  


  2. Does anyone know if there is a source of information for Mat Assignments of each bout number?

     

    It would be great to know for those of us viewing the championships via WatchESPN.   They will be having EIGHT channels, one for each mat.

     

    Thanks in advance.


  3. The MAC "mopped up: on At-Larges, with nine.  Brings them to a total of 34 for the tourney.

     

    Totals:

     

    9  Missouri (Biggest surprise at 125 McGhee.  Not sure what he did to get in.)  AtL: 2

    7  Central Michigan (a bit down)  AtL: 3

    5  Eastern Michigan (moving up)  AtL: 1

    4  Old Dominion (a tiny bit down)  AtL : 2

    4  Kent State (kinda down)  AtL: 0

    2  Northern Illinois (transfers to the Big Ten have severely hurt them) AtL: 0

    2  Buffalo (Bulls were supposed to be an "up-and-comer".  What's going on in the snow belt?)  AtL : 1

    1  Ohio U. (What the???  Bobcats have not been this down in forever) AtL: 0


  4. This is insane. For example, Nolf places sixth, but forfeits a few matches. The B1G earned 8 at the weight. Are you suggesting they get dropped down to 7? Sorry Van Brill, Nolf forfeited so you’re out. Kemerer also forfeited to 6th. Is Short out now as well?

     

    Or are you advocating leaving someone home who earned a spot? Nolf places 6th but isn’t an automatic qualifier while those who placed behind him are? Also nuts.

     

    Nowhere did I advocate leaving someone home.  I simply said you lose an AQ.  You're still eligible for an AT-LARGE.   With that, you do have a point with your particular example.  So there would be a caveat.  If you MFF to a spot in your league tourney that isn't below the number of AQs for your conference, you don't lose the AQ.

     

    I'm referring to those instances where a wrestler MFF's to a spot BELOW the number of AQs for the league at that weight class.  For example, let's say Kemerer and Short both MFF'ed to tie for last place.   Should the 7th and 8th place finishers still get the AQs, simply because they were fortunate enough to have two of the better wrestlers default out?   I don't believe they should.  Once again, it doesn't mean they don't earn an AT-LARGE.  They just have to be deemed good enough not to take away a bid that would have otherwise been awarded to a wrestler from another league that would have been deemed better. 


  5. It's a shame NIU hasn't been able to keep their top guys from transferring. 

     

    CMU also got hit bad by that bug, when a pair of past qualifiers decided to leave (at 125 & 133; ugh!)   Corey Keener is starting at Penn State and Brent Fleetwood is redshirting at North Dakota State. 

     

    ODU also lost one of the better wrestlers, who decided to grad transfer to Michigan.    This wrestling season, at any rate, Big Ten teams filled in some holes at the expense of quality starters that left MAC schools.


  6. I don't have an answer why the logo isn't being displayed.  Email the school/AD/Coach Smith if THE reason is that important to you.  I honestly never noticed. 

     

    Odd that you make a big deal of this "issue" on the same evening that Mizzou beats CMU.   

     

    And, rumor has it that Missouri may leave the MAC when their contract expires.  

     

    I've had a problem with sans logo for a few years now.  I'll confess, with the beatdown the Chippewas took, it made me chapped and prompted me to submit a post (aided by a few IPAs).


  7. Trust me, Mizzou would prefer not to be in the MAC.  They wanted to stay in as a Big 12 affiliate member when the university switched to the SEC, but they were turned down.

     

    If you don't want to be in the MAC, shop yourself to another conference.   Once again, no one has an answer to why Mizzou (I believe) is the only team in the nation that doesn't wear their league's logo.


  8. Wait, what?  Missouri is in the MAC?

     

    You could have fooled me, as over the past six years I've never seen their singlets adorn the conference logo.  Additionally, their official wrestling web site only shows the SEC logo at the bottom of their pages.

     

    Has anyone asked Brian Smith why this is so?  If the rest of the league is going to get pummeled annually, the least Missouri can do is display the league they are in.  If they don't, send 'em on to the Southern Conference, where they can recruit in that "hotbed" region of college wrestling.  #You'reEitherWithUsOrYou'reNot.
