  1. Damnit I'll get a $5k cash loan from every payday loan store in the midwest to help out the team.
  2. I have very high confidence that Cassioppi will AA for Iowa, time will tell how high. I don't think a top 4 or 5 finish is unrealistic. He has the tools to beat most at the weight, but definitely takes risks and sometimes unnecessarily puts himself in precarious situations that cost him a match or two.
  3. Missouri (Brian Smith) and Cornell (Rob Koll) are 2 that always seem to consistently develop somebody usually in that 30-100 range coming out of high school into AA caliber/Title contenders.
  4. Iowa 125: Spencer Lee 133: Austin DeSanto 141: Max Murin/Jason Renteria 149: Pat Lugo 157: Kaleb Young/Nelson Brands 165: Alex Marinelli 174: Michael Kemerer 184: Cash Wilcke 197: Jacob Warner 285: Anthony Cassioppi
  5. Starter - Max Murin - 141 - Iowa Backup - Cash Wilcke - 184 - Iowa
  6. List of guys who have AA'd or made R12 in their careers + other impactful newcomers that will presumably be competing at 133 this season: Gross (R12-2-1) Micic (4-2) Suriano (X-2) Fix/Piccinnini (4-R12) Pletcher (R16-4) DeSanto (R12) Wilson (3) Lizak (R16-2-4) Parker (R24-8-7) Bridges (8) Mueller (6-R12) Erneste (DNQ-NQ-R12) Lantry (NQ-R12-R16) Arujau/Tucker (NQ) Gomez RBY Weight could be 15-16 deep with really quality guys.
  7. Penn St. will be lucky to get 2nd. Iowa is going to run over them this year and the foreseeable future.
  8. Iowa has a good shot to challenge for the team title in 2020, I don’t think Lee would want to RS for that. Maybe an abbreviated schedule like Snyder in 2016.
  9. 2019 Lee DeSanto (JRent RS) Turk/Murin/Happel Lugo 2020 Lee Renteria Turk/Murin/Happel (DeSanto RS) Lugo 2021 Lee Renteria DeSanto/Happel Murin/Happel
  10. Jack Davis just committed to Penn St.
  11. I added Josh Terao to the list, but Eggum stated that Lizak-McKee-Thorn would all be moving up a weight class (hence Lizak listed instead of McKee), and Alber was a 141 lber last year - haven't heard anything about him going down.
  12. Looking at the guys rumored to be moving up, and the returners at 133.. shaping up to be a monster weight class. (Results are just from this past season) Seth Gross (Champ @ 133) Stevan Micic (2nd @ 133) Nick Suriano (2nd @ 125) Daton Fix/Nick Piccinnini/Kaid Brock (Piccinnini R12 @ 125 - Brock 5th @ 133 - Fix Incoming RS FR) Ethan Lizak (4th @ 125) Luke Pletcher (4th @ 133) Tariq Wilson (3rd @ 133) Montorie Bridges (8th @ 133) Scotty Parker (7th @ 133) Austin DeSanto (R12 @ 133) John Erneste (R12 @ 133) Jack Mueller (R12 @ 133) Josh Terao (12 seed @ 133) Roman Bravo-Young (Incoming TR FR) Austin Gomez (Incoming RS FR) Vitali Arujau (Incoming GS FR) Any other notable names that belong on that list? The depth resembles 125 or 165 from 2018.
  13. Other guys granted releases and considering transfer options: Devin Skatzka Justin Oliver Mason Smith Sean Russell Connor Schram Sa'Derian Perry
  14. Iowas Multi Time Champs Royce Alger - 2 Ed Banach - 3 Lou Banach - 2 Terry Brands - 2 Tom Brands - 3 Chris Campbell - 2 Barry Davis - 3 Mark Ironside - 2 Eric Juergens - 2 Marty Kistler - 2 Randy Lewis - 2 Terry McCann - 2 Matt McDonough - 2 Jeff McGinnis - 2 Lincoln McIlravy - 3 Brent Metcalf - 2 Mark Perry - 2 Joe Scarpello - 2 Joe Williams - 3 T.J. Williams - 2 Chuck Yagla - 2 Jim Zalesky - 3 83 Total NCAA titles won by Iowa wrestlers. 50 of them won by the above list of multi time champs.
  15. I definitely agree. Any smaller school, or Non-Traditional wrestling power need look no further than SDSU and Bono to figure out how to elevate their program and excitement around it. Very impressive what he has done there in a short amount of time.
