    Someone not getting a lot of love at 197.... Bulsak of Clarion.    I like Buchanan and his potential, but I'd be surprised if he made the finals this soon.    My sleeper is Trumble of NC State.  Sentimental pick:   Nino Bonaccorsi.

    15 time National Champions and in the top 5 yearly for about 30 straight years.  Split between NAIA and DII.  Last National Title was 2007 for team.   They are the only program at any 4 year level to have 6 champions in one year,  and former coach David James coached 2 individuals that won National Titles 4 times.    Been a long time coming since they have been very good.  Covid hitting late makes me cringe as they are set to host the qualifier as well in a few weeks.

    How about this:   Yasiim Bribeseca making his mat return tonight for Limestone.   In his RS Freshman year he was an All-American in a loaded 141lb weight class (for University of Nebraska Omaha).....back in 2007!   He is at 149,  and will need to knock a ton of rust off as he lost 10-1 this evening...but dude,  so cool to hear!

    You understand that this post is 7 years old right?   I've been to Southeastern before.  Unfortunately not during the wrestling season so I wasn't able to attend a dual there.  Nice facilities though.  I hope one day to get down there to watch some wrestling as well as to Keiser and St Thomas.  I think it's only a matter of time before more schools have wrestling in Florida. NJCAA wrestling would be great to have down there with all of their community/junior colleges.  Miami-Dade at one time was rather competitive and could be again.

    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.

    Swayz got a reaction from Housebuye in What did we learn this week?   
    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.

    while doing a clinic at a multi story motel,Doug went up to his 10th floor room during the break. He fell asleep standing up,leaning against the elevator wall, due to his narcolepsy. Rode up and down for 30 minutes before someone was brave enough to wake him up.
     
     
    he said he took a group of wrestlers to Russia to compete one year. The russian athletes were housed right next door to the venue,ground level, while the American's were 8 miles away, on the 5th floor of their hotel. The day after they arrived, Doug said their elevator broke down and they had trouble getting a ride to the venue. He said the "damn russians were trying to wear us out before we could get to the arena".

    Fresno State also has it listed as taking place AT Cal Poly in an article dated Dec. 19, 2020 and on their wrestling schedule:

    https://gobulldogs.com/sports/wrestling/schedule
    I think what you may be referring to here is the ban in the greater Oakland/San Francisco area.   Cal Poly S.L.O. is quite a ways from there.  About 225 miles or thereabouts.

    That changed in September when Newsome "clarified" the regulations. They had college football - however toward the end a lot of them were getting cancelled. It also depends upon the county as well.

    Swayz got a reaction from Gantry in RIP Dan Hodge   
    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!

    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.
