  1. Iowa has 6, Ed Banach, Tom Brands, Barry Davis, Lincoln McIlvary, Joe Williams, & Jim Zalesky.
  2. Well, it SEEMS as this info came only from steelfrog. In other works he made it up.
  3. But 3 day weigh-ins are very recent, when there are 8 AAs so a semi-finalist is automatically an AA. Even if he missed weight I think he would just forfeit out to 6th place.
  4. That does not change anything. There were still ONLY 200 wrestlers that made the finals in the 2000s. The fact that some of them also made the finals in the 1990s or 2010s does not change that fact.
  5. Basic Math 101. There are 20 wrestlers in the finals each year times 10 years means there are only 200 total finalists in any 10 year period so how can 225 different wrestlers make it to the finals in the 2000s?
  6. What Pinnum said, which IMHO is pretty obvious. Penn State benefits greatly from the NLWC, as does Iowa from the HWC, Cornell from Finger Lakes and so on. It also greatly benefits USA Wrestling and all USA wrestling fans as it allows college wrestlers to continue to compete post college and still make a decent living.
  7. Good point. Q just popped into my head without thinking about it.
  8. I'm sure there are others but right off the bat Quentin Wright finished 6th as a true frosh at 174, then redshirted and finished 1,2 at 184 before winning a 2nd title at 197 as a senior.
  9. Dan Hodge was never taken down in college. Bill Koll was only taken down once. There are probably others, but it is certainly rare.
  10. But Yianni should be on this list. Tied with Spencer Lee.
  11. Sold out last year at Minnesota where the arena holds over 14K.
  12. Well, college wrestling programs are not flush with donors as every school operates in the red. You are right that the donors are mostly the same people. Not sure why that would create a conflict. The RTCs also raise money thru camps, clinics, etc.
  13. Track has 19 individual events plus 2 relays and Cross Country needs 7 scoring runners and men's T&F/XC gets a total of 12.6 ships, so me thinks you are WAY off base with that one. Obviously, FB, and BB (both men's and women's) get way more ships than they really need.
  14. The NLWC is fully funded by donations, etc. and receives no money from USA Wrestling of the USA government so this entire thread is moot.
