  1. Are there enough high school girls programs/wrestlers to facilitate all Power 5 schools to offer wrestling? Or is that a question that is not wanted/warranted/allowed to be asked?
  2. Right - which is why I asked if WySem wrestled last year. I wasn't sure if they were a team that would be lumped into the "didn't wrestling last year" group. The WEBSITE I checked, didn't have the updated schedule. Moreover, the results on the HOMEPAGE only went to 2020. And to extend it further, if they didn't wrestle last year, are they wrestling this year? But it looks like they are. Thanks for the schedule. Best of luck Knights!
  3. Did they participate last year? Also, I didn't see an updated schedule on their website.
  4. Is Wyoming Seminary fielding a wrestling team this year?

  6. "They're going to need a new coach." - American University
  7. DaFuq? I thought I saw this once in an ancient Indian Sanskrit text.
  8. I think one other aspect to the decline of the Ohio RTC (aside from the departure of Rosselli) is the lack of recruitment for the RTC. This could be attributed to hubris but I digress. When the RTC started, it attracted Bunch, Dlagnev, and a couple other "heavy hitters". Those, along with Humphrey, Bergman, and Rowlands, made a solid squad. That group was most likely pivotal in attracting Stieber, Martin, and Snyder and possibly McKenna & Cox. But when Rosselli left, and all of that first wave hung up their shoes, it left a void. And that void will not attract high-end talent. I mentioned hubris because I sometimes get the sense that Tom Ryan is flabbergasted that someone would ask the RTC to recruit talent. I've heard answers like "Why would we need to go after anyone else - we have the best here at Ohio State!"
  9. Are you saying that the link I provided will not update with changes?? That's awful if that is the case. I find Track Wrestling interface frustrating. but if it updates with each change, I guess it'll have to do.
  10. Even though I realize that most of us have memorized all 10 weight classes, here is the link: https://www.ncaa.com/_flysystem/public-s3/files/2021_ncaa_d1_brackets2.pdf
  11. Not a heat map. I am disappoint.
  12. A few early upsets. Time will tell if it was an on/off match. Wonder if the irregular season will lend itself to these types of results across the D-I landscape.
  13. Develpong talent has less to do with where a team finishes in March and more to do with a kid improving during his time at a university. In recent memory, for Ohio State, Micah Jordan (and Bo Jordan* for that matter) could not get out from the bottom on a consistent basis. This was true for him in his freshmen year as well as his senior year. That is what is meant by not developing talent. I do believe Micah Jordan was a 2x (maybe 3x) AA. That has nothing to do with the fact that he failed to develop from the bottom position. I'm sure there are others, but that is my most recent memory. *It is my understanding that Bo Jordan has a foot issue that limited him severely as far as movements from the bottom position, to include driving off his foot in neutral.
  14. Maybe instead of poaching from other schools (and at the same time crying about similar things happening across the nation) try developing the talent within the room. It is my understanding that Traub is a favorite among fans. Although that won't keep you in the line-up, he did have a good year last year. I'm baffled that Ohio State would bring in someone else.
  15. I never would have spotted Cunningham.
  16. Now why would I do that? :Facepalm: Not sure how I missed that link when I posted. Hmmm...
  17. I would truly like to hear/read the justification for this. As of right now, I’m totally at a loss as to how or why this is a well-thought plan.
  18. I have zero issue in letting his COVID contraction play out before flying off the handle. I think too many are quick to claim they are right rather than search for what is right. And still, if I’m right, I probably won’t fly off the handle.
  19. I think Spencer Lee can still win 125lbs, with or without the Ivy League competition.
  20. I'm 80% confident that the NCAA tournament will occur. I think each team is doing everything they possibly can to minimize exposure to the virus and in the event of a case being found, is taking all the right steps to minimize its effect on other individuals. Because of that, I can see 34 participants per weight class come late March.
