UNI expected to join Big 12 for wrestling

Recommended Posts

Is the Big 12 going to start wrestling a true dual schedule?

 

2012 and 2013 are the only seasons the Big 12 has recognized a regular season dual champion.

 

Without a dual schedule Big 12 is just a regional national qualifying tournament.

The Big 12 has wrestled a "true dual schedule" pretty much every year except last year (the first season with 10 teams). The 2012 and 2013 seasons were double round-robin.

 

Given that it's only been two years with the current configuration (and the announcement came after schedules were already set for year one), I'd guess that there will be a full round-robin schedule coming in a couple of years -- unless there are too many affiliates added.

This is great news! I've long thought UNI deserved a slot in the Big 12. Good tradition, good team. They bring a lot to the Big 12 wrestling table.

 

They were the 2nd best team in the MAC, but don't get carried away.  They've finished in the top 10 at nationals once in the past 34 years.

 

 

(if this sounds like sour grapes, well it is.  I would have loved to see Mizzou get back in the B12)

SDSU dualed all 9 of the other conference teams in addition to Iowa, Minnesota and Virginia Tech last season.

 

Which is why they are getting solid recruits and getting Jacked for what is sure to be fun rise in college wrestling!

I don't think Mizzou should've ever left the Big 12. Damn shame that was.
