  1. Using either InterMat's or Flo's rankings, the Big Ten has the #1 ranked guys at 9 of the 10 weights. They also have the three or four top-ranked teams (depending on which ranking system you use). Only 184 has the top-ranked guy outside of the Big Ten (Valencia). At 133, the top 4 are from the Big Ten. At 141, the top 6 are from the Big Ten. At 149, 165, and 174 the top 2 are from the Big Ten. At 285, the top 3 are from the Big Ten. Has one conference ever won 9 or 10 NCAA individual titles (weights) in the same year? Or 10 or 10? Flo recently predicted that the Big Ten could get almost 50 of the 80 All American Honors. They also estimated that the Big Ten could get as many as 95 qualifiers to the NCAA tournaments (9 1/2 slots per weight). How dominant is the Big Ten this year relative to other years? And relative to other conferences in the past? How likely is it that they win 9 of 10 weights this year?
  2. I'm curious how Lee vs. Retherford goes. They might meet up at Olympic Trials if Lee manages to get past Yianni, which should be interesting. Yianni is crazy good with scrambles but Lee is now a force to be reckoned with. And he neutralized Eierman's scrambling when they met at the US Open.
  3. Some results in Cuba. Interesting that Reece Humphrey is competing https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2020/February/15/Tomasello-Pantaleo-Humphrey-and-Cox-to-compete-for-gold-at-Cerro-Pelado
  4. Thanks for the mature and enlightening high school/fraternity reply
  5. What's up with the curvature in Kemmerer's back? Is that unusual? Or just a physical condition? I've wondered for a long time.
  6. Maybe their "Jesus-trained" 165 pounder can heal that arm with a miracle.
  7. They never seem to. But, thankfully, they have to go on the road for NCAAs where they can't count on home cookin' with regard to refs and stall calls or close calls
  8. On the one hand, Penn State has big holes in the lineup. On the other hand, they have 5 guys who could possibly make the finals: RBY, Lee, Joseph, Hall, and Brooks.
  9. Their events schedule does not list it. Here is a link to the UWW website for the event. I scanned it quickly but didn't see anything about coverage: https://unitedworldwrestling.org/event/pan-american-og-qualifier?tab=schedule Here is a link to Track Wrestling's site for the event. Again, I didn't see coverage information. https://www.trackwrestling.com/opentournaments/MainFrame.jsp?newSession=false&TIM=1581729702076&pageName= Hopefully, someone will have coverage ... and folks out there will keep us posted
  10. USA Wrestling has released the list of 14 wrestlers that will be sent to Ottawa, Canada for the Pan American Olympic Qualifier. There are no real surprises on this list based on the criteria of who could be selected. David Taylor will be wrestling in his first match since last year's Beat the Streets, and he will be joined by 2019 world teamers Daton Fix, Zain Retherford, and Nick Gwiazdowski. On the women's freestyle side, the four representatives were the winners from last week's wrestle-off, plus Kayla Miracle at 62kg. In Greco-Roman the 2019 world teamers at those same Olympic weights will be responsible with trying to qualify the weight for Tokyo. The qualifying procedures are the same across all three styles: the athletes must finish top two and make the finals to qualify America at that weight for the Games. There will be no true second. PAN-AMERICAN OLYMPIC QUALIFIER at Ottawa, Canada (March 13-15, 2020) Men’s freestyle roster 57kg: Daton Fix (Titan Mercury WC/Cowboy RTC)) 65kg: Zain Retherford (Nittany Lion WC) 86kg: David Taylor (Nittany Lion WC) 125kg: Nick Gwiazdowski (Titan Mercury WC/Wolfpack WC) Women’s freestyle roster 50kg: Sarah Hildebrandt (New York AC/USOPTC) 53kg: Jacarra Winchester (Titan Mercury WC/USOPTC) 57kg: Helen Maroulis (Sunkist Kids) 62kg: Kayla Miracle (Sunkist Kids/Hawkeye WC) Greco-Roman roster 60kg: Ildar Hafizov (Army WCAP) 67kg: Ellis Coleman (Army WCAP) 77kg: Pat Smith (Minnesota Storm) 87kg: Joe Rau (Wildcat WC) 97kg: G’Angelo Hancock (Sunkist Kids) 130kg: Adam Coon (New York AC/Cliff Keen WC) Schedule (Eastern Standard Time) Friday, March 13 10:30 a.m. – Qualification rounds and repechage (GR 60-67-77-87-97-130 kg) 5 p.m. – Finals (GR 60-67-77-87-97-130 kg) Saturday, March 14 10:30 a.m. – Qualification rounds and repechage (WFS 50-53-57-62-68-76 kg) 5 p.m. – Finals (WFS 50-53-57-62-68-76 kg) Sunday, March 15 10:30 a.m. – Qualification rounds and repechage (MFS 57-65-74-86-97-125 kg) 5 p.m. – Finals (MFS 57-65-74-86-97-125 kg)
  11. The information on this event is pretty sparse and USA wrestling is helping out much.
  12. Here's the video if you want the answer in Cox's own words: https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2020/February/11/Two-time-World-champ-and-Olympic-medalist-Jden-Cox-announces-weight-class-for-2020-Olympic-year
