  1. Schreiner is not DIII in men's wrestling. NCWA. They are hoping to go DIII though. Women's is an NCAA program though and also competes folkstyle in NCWA.
  2. "Varsity Programs" aka non Club, although some "NCWA teams" are funded by their school. I will say this. There are a lot of schools out there claiming to have a varsity wrestling program or even a team...but if you can't cover 80% of the weight classes and have at least 15 wrestlers in the room. Opt out of duals if you don't have enough guys. That falls back on piss poor recruiting. You can only blame administration so long, but remember if you are still around and you blame administration for not fielding a full team...you are one of their bad decisions as well.
  3. Talking about the NC State dual? They were very good!
  4. To add to this setiment...UVU is B12 in wrestling, but WAC in other sports...with that being said, if you download the WAC app....you can go watch any home UVU dual on the WAC network, which is why I know both conferences they are members of. Wyoming is Mountain West in majority of sports, big 12 in Wrestling. I am not one to know all the faces of DI wrestlers, but I try to pride myself on knowing what schools have programs, although I couldn't tell you were some ranked guys are from in the DI ranks. Small schools are more my jam.
  5. One of the most gorgeous college settings is North Idaho College. They have a wrestling program.
  6. Lot of teams supposedly wrestling are slower than molasses in putting up schedules on a normal year...let alone this year. Usually those are the teams we wonder if they even field a program anymore in my opinion.
  7. How many years you already compete? I know lot of coaches looking for bodies at semester in NAIA level.
  8. I wonder what some of these schools have as protocol. Athletic Departments make the schedules, but then the school itself doesn't want guys on campus for any reason. I saw a team return to mats for a dual last Wednesday. Day and a half back after 3 week layoff. It was horrid. 55-0 for a team that should have won at least 2 or 3 matches. I was on the mic struggling to try to make it sound competitive.
  9. Maybe all the guys should wear Kenshield foam before and boom go at it. I believe about 90pct of teams aren't mopping between matches from what I saw this weekend and have seen this season. Exposure is 15 minutes close proximity to someone. If a match is 33 seconds we don't need to mop the mat...plus most of the stuff used needs to set for 15 minutes alone before being mopped. Then using leaf blowers, which blow the air around....not super intelligent in terms of "viral" management.
  10. So on the Oklahoma State thing, I think A.J. Ferrari reminds me of Mo Lawal who was an AA for the Cowboys in the early 2000's. I think he keeps it on his feet and holds down guys some, he will do very well and win many matches comfortably. Nebraska- I am not surprised on this win. Last year Boo Dryden came in from NEO and got tossed into the guantlet of Big 10 at semester. He's had time to train there now and get some size on him. Anybody that saw him at various tournaments or duals while he was at NEO know how freaking mean the s.o.b. is. He is very physical and I think he may pull another "upset or two" before they year is done. He qualifies for NCAAs I have him round of 12 at least. Other things: I believe it was 184 in the UNK vs. IA St. dual there was a beautiful throw. OKState there was a nice supplay in the HWT match. If you have ESPN + the underrated dual of the weekend was Northern Illinois vs. Southern Illinois. Some fireworks of matches. The 133 was super fun to watch and the 149 (I believe it was that weight) was won when a kid (NJCAA Champ Cardeionte Wilson) hit an inside trip for an old "Chuck Woolery" 2 and 2 for 4 points to pull off a 3 point win after trailing with 5 seconds left in the match.
  11. Non D1 wise.... Perkey vs Keiswetter 3rd place D2 match 2005.
  12. I'm never surprised at any season on how horribly slow schedules and rosters get posted. Once season gets going many do fair at results posting.
  13. As long as they don't do the mop between every match bs like many schools are doing. Basketball isn't mopping floors or disinfecting after 7 minutes...wrestle 5 break 5 more
  14. I didn't think any sport was allowed to be hosted in California because of the governor....
  15. I thought the same thing. But he must not be in top 5 All Time. They do more of a list but you have to be on Rokfin I believe. Great Story here though: https://www.wrestlingpod.com/wrestling-news/w421/the-rise-of-sf-states-donald-lockett/
  16. My first college loss was in a wrestle-off to a guy about 80 lbs heavier than me, it was brutal, it was a mess, it was my first time wrestling in over 2 years. I was embarrassed and ashamed, nobody should want to address the guy who got turned into a pretzel and stuck so fast they barely announced our names. But 1 person went past all the winners and super competitive guys and put his hand on my shoulder and squeezed....immediately my shoulder felt like applesauce, only fitting to as it was the Iconic Apple Crushing Silver Medalist for USA in 1956 and a 3x undefeated NCAA Champ (rules prohibited freshmen)in wrestling Danny Hodge who was clutching my shoulder. He gave me a chin up kid and nowhere to go but up speech. Mr. Hodge is the epitome of class and before there was a Dan named Gable so many looked up to, there was Hodge. For those unfamiliar with the sport I love, the Heisman equivalent is named for him. RIP Mr. Hodge. You are missed already and your legacy will live on!
  17. Anybody with a middle school degree can read the 1st two sentences out loud and it would be obvious to the wrestling college fans in the room they are talking OU Sooners.
  18. I announced some NAIA duals a week back and some of the rosters had RS-Fr, and on same roster had RS listed. Teams are wrestling redshirts this year in duals. Lack of Open Tournaments, you will see it. Also with lots of schools picking up duals against teams of non conference and also non division you will see it more in 2nd semester. Oklahoma State and Missouri for instance dual #3 DII Central Oklahoma. I think you will see some RS guys tossed into that dual.
  19. They had s hwt leave the program that was probably in hunt as starter as a former juco all American, but he transferred to Grandview and is 4th on depth chart!
  20. Feb 14th Ok State and Mo get 3 duals, UCO and Missouri 2 duals as they aren't wrestling each other.
  21. William's Baptist has men's Greco team besides college wrestling team.
  22. I drew Kevin Hoy 1st round of Ou open. Following week he had a helluva run to the CKLV title in a loaded field.
  23. If you took the 5th best team in each division...made them dual, NCWA probably winds up 0-3 against NAIA, DIII and Juco on most years. Even with champions, I think some good matches may happen, but I don't see a NCWA team beating Loras/Wartburg, Grandview, or Clackamas.
