  1. Malik competed for Mizzou at 65 kg at U23. I believe he would be a redshirt Freshman.
  2. Isn’t Mike the head coach of the recently established D3 Wrestling Program at Westminster ?
  3. Still concerned about 125, 133, & 141 not having Waters available. Confident that the new staff (Todd, Maple, & Bradley) can adequately cover the upper 7 weights.
  4. Maybe ..... although Eierman has already expressed his desire to take ORS some time ago. If Eierman takes an ORS, will other wrestlers eligible for a regular RS (Mauller, Jacques, & Elam) also take a RS so Missouri can make a Trophy run in 2021 & be better positioned in 2022 and 2023 ? Worth considering IMO.
  5. A big loss for our 125-149 wrestlers. He will be missed.
  6. Is there a deadline to declare an Olympic RS ? Is Eierman the only one who has stated he will take one thus far ?
  7. I know it’s early in the process, but, what will be their “Qualifier” for the NCAA Tournament ?
  8. This seems like a weird affiliation from a geography standpoint although it’s good that the PAC 12 will now be back up to 6 Teams. Not knowing all the circumstances....... it just seems that the Southern Conference, MAC, or Big 12 would have made more sense in many ways.
  9. Guessing : 125: Severado or Punke 133: Malik Johnson or Hart 141: Leeth (if he can sustain that weight) or Hart 149: Leeth or Mauller (RS ?)
  10. Are alternates announced ? If so, when ?
  11. Agreed. Previous AA. 157 was a mess with all the AQ’s that didn’t “hold serve”.
  12. My 18th overall. My first was in St.Louis in 2000. Watched Missourian's TJ Hill & Scott Schatzman AA. Also got to see Cael win his 2nd Title. Missed Iowa City & Albany and have attended every one since Kansas City in 2003. Hoping for many more !!
  13. Thanks. I don't know why they can't show these results on the bracket (like MAC does) as they are NCAA qualification matches. You shouldn't have to search for press releases to find these results. Only in wrestling.
  14. There must have been "true 2nd" place matches at Pac-12 as Pengilly (Stanford) is on this list despite being shown as 2nd place on Track. As Track does not show the results of these matches, where can the results of these "true matches" be found ?
  15. NORFOLK, Va. – No. 5 Mizzou Wrestling claimed its eighth straight conference tournament title after winning the Mid-American Conference Championship with 180.0 team points Saturday afternoon at the Ted Constant Convocation Center. Mizzou claimed six conference titles as all six wrestlers who advanced to the finals won their championships bouts. All 10 Mizzou wrestlers finished fourth or better, with nine of 10 taking at least third. Mizzou also broke its own championship record with 180.0 team points, topping the mark set by last year's team (177.0). Mizzou's six individual MAC Champions are: RS senior John Erneste – 133 – Third Career Title RS junior Jaydin Eierman – 141 – Third Career Title Freshman Brock Mauller – 149 – First Career Title Freshman Jarrett Jacques – 157 – First Career Title RS senior Daniel Lewis – 174 – Fourth Career Title RS junior Dylan Wisman – 184 First Career Title All six earn automatic spots to the NCAA Championships. After two pins and a technical fall, Eierman was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Wrestler. He won his third MAC title Saturday.

Team Scores Missouri - 180.0 Buffalo - 113.5 Old Dominion - 113.0 Central Michigan - 110.5 Ohio - 99.5 Northern Illinois - 98.0 SIU Edwardsville - 68.5 Kent State - 64.0 Notes Mizzou claimed its seventh straight MAC Tournament title and its eighth straight conference title dating back to its final year in the Big 12. Mizzou racked up 180.0 total team points, the best in MAC Tournament history. Mizzou won six individual titles Saturday with all six of those wrestlers clinching a spot at the NCAA Championships. Mizzou also clinched spots to the NCAA Tournament at 125 and heavyweight based on the league's allocations. Mizzou will need wild cards at 165 and 197 in order to send all 10 to the NCAA Championships. Freshman Dack Punke picked up his first pin of the season in his first consolation match, pinning Shakur Laney of Ohio in 3:13 to advance to the third-place bout. He finished fourth on Saturday and earned his first berth to the NCAA Tournament. RS senior John Erneste claimed his third MAC Championship Saturday. RS junior Jaydin Eierman became a three-time MAC Champion as well. RS senior Daniel Lewis extended his personal win streak to 16 bouts, earning 10 pins during that stretch. With his 11-2 major decision Saturday in the finals, becomes just the eighth four-time MAC Champion in league history and first since Mizzou's J'den Coxdid so in 2017. Freshman Brock Mauller, with his title win, now has 29 wins in his true freshman campaign, the most for a Mizzou freshman grappler since J'den Cox had 38 in 2013-14. Mauller's only two losses of the season have come to the same wrestler.

  16. COLUMBIA, Mo. – No. 5 Mizzou Wrestling is in search of its eighth consecutive conference title as it travels to the Mid-American Conference Championships, which will be held Friday-Saturday, March 8-9, at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia. Action will begin at 2 p.m. (CT) Friday with the quarterfinals. Consolation matches will be at 11 a.m. (CT) Saturday with the championship finals beginning at 1 p.m. (CT). Dating back to Mizzou's final year in the Big 12, the Tigers have won seven straight regular season or tournament conference titles. Mizzou has already won the regular season MAC title in 2018-19 and will look to earn the tournament title this weekend. Last year, Mizzou won the MAC Tournament with a record 177 total points as seven Tigers earned individual titles. Of those seven, four will defend their titles from a season ago – RS senior John Erneste (133), RS junior Jaydin Eierman (141), RS junior Connor Flynn (165) and RS senior Daniel Lewis(174). Heading into the tournament, Mizzou boasts the No. 1 seed at seven of the 10 weight classes, including all four grapplers who are looking to defend their MAC titles. In addition to those four, freshman Brock Mauller (149), freshman Jarrett Jacques (157), junior Dylan Wisman(184) and sophomore Wyatt Koelling (197) hold No. 1 seeds heading into Friday.

  17. AMES, Iowa – Fifth-ranked Mizzou Wrestling closed its regular season with a 23-15 win over No. 11 Iowa State to finish the 2018-19 campaign with a 16-1 record. RS senior Daniel Lewis earned his 47th career pin in a Mizzou singlet, tied for the second-most in school history, trailing only two-time Hodge Trophy winner Ben Askren who had 91 in his career. Lewis wasn't the only Tiger to impress as RS senior John Erneste earned a technical fall over the nation's No. 8 wrestler and junior Jaydin Eierman also tallied a pin, his fifth straight and team-leading 14th this season. Mizzou finishes the regular season with just one loss, coming at the hands of No. 2 Oklahoma State in a 19-15 decision. Mizzou has won 36 of its last 37 duals. The Tigers finish the regular season with a 9-1 mark against ranked teams. "We were in a lot of adversity in that match with our freshmen - it was a frustrating day for them," Coach Brian Smith said. "Then our upperclassmen go out there - John Erneste beats a highly ranked kid and tech falls him, Eierman goes out and gets the fall and Daniel gets the fall. It's tough to lose dual meets when you've got three guys doing things like that. We need some of these younger guys step up for us. They will. They will be ready for the conference meet. This adversity will help them." The dual started at heavyweight as the two programs agreed to finish the dual at 197 pounds to honor former Mizzou wrestler Willie Miklus, who transferred to Iowa State this season to be closer to home as his father battles ALS. Freshman Zach Elam took the mat at heavyweight against Gannon Gremmel and the two were knotted at 3-3 following regulation. Elam nearly got a takedown as time expired in the first sudden victory period, but Gremmel had a hold of his foot. Gremmel then scored a takedown midway through the second sudden victory period, the seventh period of the bout, to earn a 5-3 win. The dual then flipped back over to 125 pounds as Dack Punke and nationally ranked Alex Mackall took the mat. Punke trailed 3-2 late in the third and tried to land a shot late, but it was fended off by Mackall, who won a 4-2 decision after racking up 1:21 of advantage time. In a top-10 matchup at 133, Erneste established his dominance over No. 8 Austin Gomez quickly in the first period. He scored a takedown with 39 seconds left in the first and wrapped up a cradle as time was expiring. He couldn't land the pin, but picked up a four-point nearfall to take a 6-0 lead into the second period. Erneste nearly pinned him again in the second, scoring another four-point nearfall. It was the exact same script in the third as he again nearly put Gomez on his back as a four-point nearfall wrapped up a 22-6 technical fall. In a top-15 matchup at 141, Eierman tallied his team-leading 14th pin of the season with seven seconds remaining in the second period. It was his fifth straight win, all coming by fall. At 149, freshman Brock Mauller was upset by No. 13 Jarrett Degen, 11-4. It was Mauller's second loss this season to Degen as his only two have come to the Cyclone 149-pounder. It snapped a 15-bout personal win streak for Mauller and pulled the dual score to 11-9 heading into intermission. At 157, true freshman Jarrett Jacques grinded out a 5-2 decision, scoring a pair of takedowns, including one at the buzzer in the third. That extended Mizzou's dual lead to 14-9 as he improved to 23-6 on the year. Connor Flynn made it two straight for Mizzou following the intermission, grinding out a 4-2 win at 165 to extend Mizzou's lead to 17-9. Lewis picked up his 47th career fall in just 2:03 at 174 pounds, extending the lead to 23-9. At 184, Dyaln Wisman came up on the wrong end of a 3-2 decision in a top-20 bout and Miklus earned a 4-0 win at 197 to close the dual.

  18. I was hoping for Mizzou, but had my doubts. Wish the best for him at Cornell.
  19. COLUMBIA, Mo. – Fifth-ranked Mizzou Wrestling will look to start a new dual winning streak as it is set to face No. 11 Iowa State in a dual between top-15 teams this Sunday (Feb. 24) at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa. The dual will begin at 5 p.m. (CT) and air live on Cyclones.tv. The dual will be Mizzou's regular season finale. Mizzou (15-1, 7-0 MAC) is coming off a 19-15 defeat at the hands of No. 2 Oklahoma State after the Cowboys won six of 10 bouts in front of a record crowd at the Hearnes Center last Saturday. Winning duals last time out for Mizzou were No. 3 Jaydin Eierman at 141, No. 5 Brock Mauller at 149, No. 13 Jarrett Jacques at 157 and No. 2 Daniel Lewis at 174. The dual loss snapped a 35-dual win streak for the Tigers, which dated back to 2016-17. The streak fell just two dual wins shy of the school record. Mizzou and Iowa State's all-time series goes way back to 1926-27, and the two teams have met 52 times over the years, but not since Mizzou left the Big 12 Conference after the 2011-12 season. Mizzou defeated Iowa State that year twice, 24-12 and 31-10, and took first at the Big 12 Championships later that season. Iowa State leads the all-time series, 44-8. However, since Brian Smith took over the program, Mizzou is 7-9 against Iowa State and has won the last three meetings. Among Mizzou's projected starters for Sunday, several grapplers have impressive streaks in tow. Eierman, ranked third at 141 pounds, comes into Sunday's dual having pinned his last four opponents, including No. 13 Kaid Brock of Oklahoma State last time out. He has 13 pins on the season, just three shy of moving into Mizzou's all-time top-10 in falls for a season. At 149 pounds, Mauller may be having the most impressive season among any of the nation's true freshman. He is 25-1 on the year and has a personal winning streak of 15 matches. Since moving into the starting dual lineup on Dec. 16, Mauller is a perfect 12-0 in dual action. His last loss came against Jarrett Degan of Iowa State at the Lindenwood Open. The two will square off again Sunday. Degan is No. 13 in this week's WIN Magazine rankings. Mauller's 25 wins are the most by a Mizzou true freshman since three-time national champion J'den Cox won 38 in 2013-14. Mauller is one of just two true freshman nationally to rank in the top five at any of the 10 weight classes. Eierman and Mauller aren't the only two Mizzou wrestlers carrying impressive streaks into Sunday's dual. Senior 174-pounder Lewis has won 12 in a row with seven pins, a technical fall and a major decision on his resume during that span. In his last two bouts, he has dominated a pair of top-10 opponents, including a pin of defending national champion Zahid Valencia (Arizona State) on the road and a 7-0 win over No. 6 Joe Smith (Oklahoma State). Lewis now has 110 wins in his career, just 12 back of Mizzou's all-time top-10. Of his 110 wins, 79 have scored bonus points, including 46 career pins, third-most in school history. His next pun will tie him with J.P. Reese for second all-time at Mizzou, trailing only Ben Askren (91). When Mizzou takes the mat at 197 pounds with Wyatt Koelling Sunday, he will do so against a familiar face in RS senior Willie Miklus, who of course was a three-time All-American for Mizzou from 2013-14 through 2017-18. He transferred to Iowa State to be closer to home for his final season of eligibility this year. Iowa State will send six ranked wrestler to the mat Sunday while Mizzou is ranked at nine of the 10 weight classes. In fall, there will be five top-20 matchups Sunday. Below is the projected lineups for both teams: 125 Pounds – Dack Punke (9-7) vs. No. 16 Alex Mackall (20-8) 133 Pounds – #10 John Erneste (14-4) vs. No. 8 Austin Gomez (17-3) 141 Pounds – #3 Jaydin Eierman (19-3) vs. No. 12 Ian Parker (21-3) 149 Pounds – #7 Brock Mauller (25-1) vs. No. 13 Jarrett Degen (22-4) 157 Pounds – #13 Jarrett Jacques (22-6) vs. Chase Straw (16-9) 165 Pounds – #13 Connor Flynn (16-6) vs. Logan Schumacher (15-9) 174 Pounds – #2 Daniel Lewis (20-1) vs. Marcus Coleman (24-8) 184 Pounds – #16 Dylan Wisman (13-6) vs. No. 17 Sam Colbray (21-5) 197 Pounds – #16 Wyatt Koelling (17-8) vs. No. 5 Willie Miklus (17-2) 285 Pounds – #19 Zach Elam (19-6) vs. Gannon Gremmel (21-9)
  20. I saw that. Cefalo was obviously there for the sole purpose of improving his Winning Pct. So why wrestle Teske (which is a potential loss) when instead you can wrestle Nguyen (which is almost certainly a win). lol. In a similar interesting situation at that Open..... Wyatt Sheets (OSU), who was obviously there to acquire an RPI, mff's matches to both Knutson & Hubbard (both losing records) so he can Inj Def to Stotts (winning record) in the 5th place match. As this was a "Last Chance Open", I have no problems with Coaches trying to game the system to position their wrestlers to acquire an AQ for their Quaifiers. I do however have a problem with Coaches like the Ohio U. Coach doing what he did in the Buffalo dual.
  21. Ohio U. this past Sunday. In a dual vs MAC opponent Buffalo, they don't wrestle 4 of their potential NCAA Qualifiers: Laney at 125 Guillen at 133 Carson at 157 Yinger at 165 All in an attempt to AVOID taking losses which would impact their MAC Seeding. It should be noted that Buffalo wrestled their entire lineup. Hoping Ohio performs poorly at MAC Qualifier.
  22. COLUMBIA, Mo. – In front of a program-record crowd of 4,721 at the Hearnes Center, fifth-ranked Mizzou Wrestling dropped a hard-fought, 19-15, decision against former Big 12 rival, No. 2 Oklahoma State Saturday (Feb. 16). The loss snapped Mizzou's 35-dual winning streak, which dated back to the 2016-17 season. It feel just two duals shy of the all-time program record winning streak of 37 duals. The historic dual began with recognizing Tiger Style seniors John Ereneste, Daniel Lewis and Nick Nasenbury, each of whom have helped propel the Tigers as one of the nation's most successful programs throughout the last four years. After dropping the first two bouts, the Tigers found the momentum after redshirt junior Jaydin Eierman earned his 13th fall of the season, taking down No. 13 Kaid Brock and cutting the Pokes' lead to 7-6 through three bouts. He needed just 3:48 to tally his team-leading 13th pin. At 149 pounds, true freshman Brock Maullercontinued his dominant initial campaign (25-1) by upsetting No. 5 Kaden Gfeller in a 9-4 decision, giving Mizzou a 9-7 lead, its first of the afternoon. His 25 wins rank second all-time amongst true freshman in the program, only behind Mizzou legend J'den Cox, who had 38. Columbia native Jarrett Jacques extended Mizzou's lead to 12-7 in the 157-pound, as he outlasted Wyatt Sheets and continued to prove his worth as a true freshman under head coach Brian Smith, earning his 22nd win of the campaign. At 174, reigning MAC Wrestler of the Week Lewis was riding an 11-match winning streak heading into Saturday's dual, one week removed from pinning the defending national champion Zahid Valencia at Arizona State. He comfortably found his way to a 7-0 decision over No. 6 Joe Smith, keeping Mizzou's lead at five heading into the final three bouts. Coming up short in the 184 and 197, the Cowboys regained a one-point lead on Mizzou heading into a top-25 heavyweight showdown between No. 16 Zach Elam and No. 2 Derek White. A perfect culmination to a very even dual from start to finish, White and Elam went into a sudden victory period where the Pokes emerged victorious with a takedown just 31 seconds into the frame, ending Missouri's 35 match winning streak. Match Notes: Mizzou Wrestling's last loss on Senior Day was to Oklahoma State in 2009 when the Tigers fell to the Cowboys 24-9. The Tigers' all-time record against the Cowboys is 7-42-1 and are 2-3 in the last five meetings against the former Big Eight rival. Coach Smith is 7-18-1 against OSU. Jaydin Eierman pinned No. 13 Kaid Brock to improve to 13 total falls this season. He is three falls away from beating his own season high and breaking into the top-10 Mizzou falls in a season. Brock Mauller improves to 25-1 on the season. This is the most single-season wins for a true freshman at Mizzou since J'den Cox, who tallied 38 wins in the 2013-14 season. This match broke the Mizzou Wrestling all-time attendance record with 4,721 fans in attendance. The previous record was 2,772.

The dual will be at 5 p.m. in Ames, Iowa.
  23. My best guess..... 125: Punke has already shirted. It will be him or Severado. R12 may be a stretch. 133: Colby Smith, Malik Johnson, & Alan Hart to compete for the spot. Solid, but a drop-off from Erneste. Malik with the highest upside. 141: With McKenna gone, Eierman’s best chance to be a a Finalist. Title contender. 149: Mauller 157: Leeth (with Jacques taking his RS). 165: Flynn or RS Frosh Mocco 174: Marriott or Kent or Flynn 184: Wisman or Marriott 197: Koelling 285: Elam Another very solid dual team. About the same (scoring) Tournament Team.
  24. Great question as Joe will have very FEW matches at 165, the only matches considered for Seeding. His NCAA Seed would solely be based on how he fared at Big 12's vs Ashworth, Romero, & Steiert (all likely Top 12 Seeds).
