  1. As of Sept 7: Joining Mizzou Wednesday are the following (national ranking is as of Sept. 2): No. 6 Keegan O'Toole – 165 Pounds – Hartland, Wis. No. 11 Rocky Elam – 197 Pounds – Kansas City, Mo. No. 45 Colton Hawks – 184 Pounds – Wentzville, Mo. No. 48 Josh Edmond – 141 Pounds – Detroit, Mich. No. 100 Trey Crawford – 133 Pounds - Kansas City, Mo. Ellis Pfleger – 157 Pounds - Grafton, Wis. Ethan Turner – 133 Pounds - Houston, Ohio As of Jan 28 COLUMBIA, Mo. – Mizzou Wrestling head coach Brian Smith has announced the signing of two-time NCAA qualifier and Missouri native Matt Schmitt (Platte City, Mo.), a graduate transfer 133-pounder from West Virginia. Schmitt, a former team captain for the Mountaineers, will have two years of eligibility remaining as he took a redshirt as a freshman and an Olympic redshirt this season. April 8 Looking good for 2020/2 and beyond! Thank you to Coach Brian Smith and his coaching staff!
  2. Maybe the current red shirt rules could be used as a guideline. Baseball season, as an example, was barely begun before being shut down. Give them a redshirt. Wrestling and basketball were done with the exception of the season championship. Those sports would not get a redshirt. Probably not a popular thought on this forum. Forget the virus issue for a moment. If a wrestler wrestled all season and was hurt just before championship weekend, would you give them a redshirt? All said, I was really looking forward to the NCAA's. My son and I had tickets.

    So does O'Tool redshirt as well? All these guys are still pretty young. Where does O-Tool fir into the lineup with Mocco, Jacques, etc.?
  4. The difference between this and a Catholic church issue is the age/maturity of the person being abused. Even if the wrestler doesn't brake an arm, why wouldn't they know it's wrong and stop it by any means necessary?
  5. From ESPN's web site... A former University of Michigan wrestler filed a lawsuit in federal court Wednesday alleging the school ignored warnings that former team doctor Robert Anderson was sexually abusing his patients. The anonymous plaintiff wrestled at Michigan from 1984 to 1989. According to the lawsuit, he first was violated by Anderson as a 17-year-old freshman, and Anderson continued to molest and grope him on a regular basis during the remainder of his time as a student-athlete. "One illustrative incident is when plaintiff scratched his arm while wrestling on the mat during a summer training session, and he was told by leadership to see Anderson about the bleeding," the lawsuit states. Much more in the article....

  6. Provide lots of encouragement his first year. My youngest son started at age 5 and had to wrestle in a 6-7 year old age group. Lost every match his first year but would come off mat as excited as he could be. That was awesome dad! Good memories in St Louis/Oakville.
  7. Anyone know if there are any colleges in Texas (especially DFW) that might start a wrestling program soon? (other than just a club based group)
  8. There will be in two months! Go Brock!
  9. Congrats to Brock on his big win against the #1 ranked wrestler at 149. Oh yeah, congrats also goes out to the Oklahoma State Cowboys who won the dual against Mizzou 26-6.
  10. Will Connor Brown be able to contribute? 141 maybe? Regarding O'Tool, where can he squeeze into the line-up? That part of the team is pretty solid.
  11. Rocky Elam, Zach's younger brother, was registered to wrestle at 197. Anyone have an idea why he didn't wrestle?
  12. Following the Clash too. Interested in how Leeth does today as well. Thanks
  13. Can Connor Flynn move back down to 165 from 174? He's getting beat by J Kent at 174 and we seem to be struggling with Peyton Mocco at 165.
  14. Dack Punke (125 pounds) finished the 2018-19 season with an 11-12 with a 6-3 record in tournaments and was an NCAA qualifier at 125 pounds. He will wrestle Virginia Tech's Joey Prata who last year finished his first full season with a 15-13 record and placed third at the ACC Championship. Mizzou has not named a wrestler for the 133-pound weight class for Saturday's dual. Virginia Tech will wrestle No. 14 Collin Gerardi. Alex Butler (141 pounds) posted a 14-6 record during his redshirt junior season he has a career record of 53-28 over the last three seasons. He will wrestle Mitch Moore who finished 18-9 and placed second at the ACC Championship. Brock Mauller (149 Pounds) opened his Tiger career with a 32-5 record and was 8-0 in conference. He became a MAC Champion and NCAA All-American (sixth place) after one of the finest true freshman seasons in program history. He will wrestle Brent Moore who in the 2017-2018 season was a ACC Champion at 141 pounds and went 1-2 at the NCAA Championships. Jarrett Jacques (157 pounds) finished his freshmen year with a 27-8 record and a perfect 9-0 record in conference duals. He will wrestle B.C. LaPrade who went 18-11 and 10-4 in duals and 1-2 in the NCAA Championships. Peyton Mocco (165 pounds) is a redshirt freshman who last year as a Tiger went 9-3. The other option for the Tigers at 165 pounds is Luke Fortuna who finished his redshirt junior season at 174 pounds with an 8-7 record and 2-0 in MAC competition. One of those two Tiger grapplers will wrestle David McFadden who went 24-4 overall and 5-0 in the ACC he finished fifth in the NCAA's. Connor Flynn (174 pounds) ended the season 21-9 with a perfect 7-0 record in MAC duals. He will wrestle Cody Hughes, who went 7-7 last year. Dylan Wisman (184 pounds) concluded his 2018-19 season with a 17-9 record and a perfect 4-0 in the MAC giving him his first MAC Title. He also was an NCAA qualifier. He will wrestle Hunter Bolen who redshirted last year and went 13-1 at open tournaments. Wyatt Koelling (197 pounds) ended the season with a 20-10 record and a perfect 7-0 record in the MAC. He was an alternate selection for the NCAA Championships and will look to improve that standing this year. He will wrestle Stanley Smeltzer who went 4-3 last year. Austin Meyers received a NCAA qualifier spot at the NCAA Championships in 2017. He will wrestle John Borst who went 12-10 last year and 0-2 in duals.
  15. Besides Mizzou, which colleges are competing in this tourn?
  16. Last high school season he was wrestling around 145. I was surprised to see him in the 160 or so weight class. Glad to see him do so well. He'll be a great addition to the Mizzou Tigers next season.
  17. Grades must be especially bad. Athletes can be ineligible because of grades and work themselves back in the starting lineup.
  18. So far though, no one has been able to confirm whether Connor is eligible to wrestle this season. The predominant opinion is that he's required to sit out this season since this is his second transfer.
  19. That'd be a shame. He was expected to have a starting role this year (subject to Connor Brown's availability). Don't know who would have won a wrestle off. Either way, excited to see this new Mizzou team compete. Coach Smith continues to build champions and recruit well.
  20. Still no one that knows anything about Malik Johnson? Is he till at Mizzou, or not?
  21. Apparently the decision Leeth will go 141 was made shortly after last season. He's come down to 141 in a very gradual manner; not overnight. He's surely lost some muscle but he'll still be a monster at 141 if he isn't suffering from the cut.
  22. Thanks PinFallRecruit. No picture was posted, so I scrolled right past it. Any idea if he's eligible to wrestle this year? Will he need to sit for a year? I've seen it speculated in both ways. Thanks
  23. Missouri has posted their 2019/2020 roster and it raises a few questions. 1. Malik Johnson a 4 time Missouri state champ from CBC, is not on the roster. He would have been a red shirt sophomore and was likely a starter at 133. What's up? Has he transferred? 2. Grant Leeth is listed at 141 which was expected. However, Jaydin Eierman is also listed at 141. I would have expected if Jaydin was taking an Olympic RS he would not be a registered student and therefore, not on Mizzou's roster. Is this just my misunderstanding or is Jaydin not taking his RS? 3. The rumor that Connor Brown was transferring to Mizzou was not substantiated by having his name on the roster. Any update on Connor's plans? Thanks for any help on this. Gary
