  1. I heard he was transferring to Lindenwood College in St Charles Missouri.
  2. Agree with milbruem. Love the direction of the Mizzou program. How many teams can say they had three true freshman compete at Nationals; one AA (Brock), one an eyelash away from AA (Elam) and JJ showed growth with his performance all season. Wrestlers and coaches continue to improve the program every year! Congrats to the entire team and coaching staff.
  3. Thorough, well thought out analysis. Fun stuff. Can't wait for things to get rolling.
  4. Julia Child? Mickey Roony? Who'd a thunk!
  5. Maybe your rankings are different, but wasn't 133 lb Erneste (Mizzou) considered an upset when he tech falled Gomez (Iowa State)? I thought most rankings had Gomez ranked ahead of Erneste by a couple of spots.
  6. Brandon Slay. Great wrestler, smart guy and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Oh yeah, he's from Texas too!
  7. Had John pulled any of his starters, Okie State would have most likely lost the dual.
  8. Zach Elam showed today why he is such a strong candidate to screw up the HWT seedings at nationals. Elam took #2 ranked Derek White to OT. White won with an OT TD.
  9. Missouri 133 - John Erneste 141 - Jaydin Eierman 149 - Brock Mauller 174 - Daniel Lewis
  10. Rankings took some heat recently, like all ranking sites, for what various readers thought were inaccurate rankings. "Opinions" are always subject to criticism by someone, somewhere; makes sports talk fun and interesting hearing other views. I'm writing to suggest that, for the benefit of wrestling as a sport, the time and work put into the WrestleStat Rankings is valuable and , at least by me, very much appreciated. Thanks for the stats and all the hard work. Look forward to see the improvements you bring next year and the year after. Mizzou Fan! PS. Can't believe you don't have Mizzou ranked ahead of Penn State! Ha!
  11. Anyone have a clue about why Elam has wrestled poorly on several of his recent matches? Looked like a different wrestler compared to his first month and a half of the season.
  12. Was Peyton hurt bad enough to be done for the year or will he return? He's still got his redshirt for this season, right?
  13. Mizzou fans are pretty excited about their new HWT, Zach Elam. A true freshman doing really well. Just took 3rd at CKLV tournament.
  14. Proud of Mizzou's performance and look forward to seeing them improve over the remainder of the season.season. Questions/Comments: 1. The final team results can be misleading due to teams not being at full strength (e.g., Cornell). Mizzou finished ahead of Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska and Northern Iowa.Were these other teams short handed or was Mizzou's higher score a true reflection of team performance? 2. Colby Smith (125) had a really strong tournament beating two seeded wrestlers; did he forfeit to Piotrowski due to illness, injury, other? Anything that will keep him out of the lineup for any length of time? (4) Louie Hayes (Virginia) – W, 10-4 vs. (12) Sidney Flores (Air Force) – W, 11-4 3. Grant Leeth also forfeited his last match. Anything long term? 4. Loved the strong performance of Mizzou's youngest wrestlers; Jarrett Jacques, Zach Elam and Colby Smith. Brian Smith continues to recruit well and develop strong recruits into champions. 5. Any anticipated line up changes coming (eligibility, injury recovery, etc.) that will improve our line-up? Congrats to the entire Mizzou team and coaching staff!
  15. Anyone have any insights on the Mizzou starting lineup this year? Getting close!
  16. Just like Brian Smith, I wasn't counting Barlow. Haven't been able to count him since his freshman year.(as we all know. Wish Barlow all the best, but glad he's graduating.
  17. Congrats to the Mizzou wrestlers on a very good season. We lose Joey G to graduation, otherwise, everybody is back next year. Look forward to seeing how the strong recruiting class contributes. I understand the contract with the MAC expires this year and we can make a change. From watching the NCAA performance it appears getting some tougher "in-season" competition would be beneficial. Hoping for a move back to the Big 12 in the off season.
  18. Option #1: Transfer his coverage to Olympic figure skating. He's a little obnoxious for the NCAA tourn. Option #2: At a minimum, do a split screen so we can watch the wrestling. Very irritating to have important matches in progress and the camera is focused completely on Billy B. Oh yeah, and the person who bought 1,742 time slots to play the same Snickers commercial (every 5 minutes) telling us how to make butter needs to be tarred and feathered. Otherwise, absolutely amazing tournament!
  19. My son and I are driving up to Stillwater from Dallas. Coming to watch a great dual, but cheering for Mizzou to win all the way. Can't wait!
  20. pish, ... I'm guessing you are saying this without watching Lewis much this year. Just a guess. Lewis has looked very strong,...significantly improved over last year when he placed 6th. He'll be more competitive than you are thinking.
  21. Is he injured or can't win starting spot?
  22. I also noticed there's no Black and Gold meet on Mizzou's published schedule. The meet seems to have evolved into more of a team intro for fans than having much to do with determining who starts.
  23. OK, practice formally begins next week and the 2017/18 season starts in a month. Still a little early but here goes: 1. We had a good year last year. Some new wrestlers really came on strong at the end of the season. Still believe Brian Smith is one of the best coaches in the country. Coach Smith and his staff year after year develop their wrestlers into winners. 2. Is Barlow McGhee still expected to start at 125 this season? Maybe he was hurt last year, but he didn't perform anywhere near what he had shown in years past. Would love to have BM back if he's up to it. 3. Was Daniel Lewis cutting too much weight last year? He'd go into matches and dominate for two periods then appeared to run completely out of gas. I'm seeing projections that he'll wrestle at 174 this year. True? 4. Really excited to see Miklus at 197 this year. Hope he is, and remains, healthy. For someone as good as he is to be hurt and/or wrestling out of his normal weight class you really feel for the guy. Hopefully this is a big year for him. Does anyone know yet if he's getting an additional year of eligibility yet due to his injury? 5. Any other significant news for the Tigers,...good or not so good? Appreciate the feedback for a loyal fan living in Texas.
