Conference AQ Allocations

Recommended Posts

Steals (Big 10)

 

133: Renteria (Nebraska) will steal a bid as he will finish Top 6 in a 7 AQ weight class

141: Diehl (Maryland) steals bid from Thorn (Minnesota)

141: Turk (Iowa) steals bid from Weaver (Indiana)

184: Krone (Minnesota) steals bid from Gravina (Rutgers)

Since most of those guys will still end up getting in anyway, what they really have stole was a potential spot from the rest of the at-large candidates. Those tickets are going faster than a Rolling Stones Farewell Tour (yeah pick any of the last 5 times they tried it).

Is there a list anywhere of everyone that has qualified thus far?

 

Who will need WCs that did not place in their conference tournament spots?

There was a thread that started a list of people who had the AQ stolen from them. Doesn't seem to be an updated list though.

I believe the EIWA just lost an AQ at 149 as Navy is going with Prince instead of Wilding (who was initially submitted and earned an AQ).

 

3 AQ's now instead of 4.

 

 

Edit:

Apparently, the NCAA changed their policy on AQ's.

 

So, Prince (Navy) replacing Wilding does NOT result in the EIWA losing an AQ.

 

EIWA stlll has 4 AQ's at 149.

 

Per the wrestlingreport.com site :

 

NCAA's Pre-Championships Manual:

 

"If a wrestler earns a Gold or Silver Standard label and does not compete in his conference or regional qualifying tournament, the qualifier position that was earned by this wrestler for his qualifying event will revert to the at-large pool, unless the wrestler who earned the qualifier position is replaced by a wrestler who also meets or exceeds the threshold levels for that respective weight class."

I managed to find my copy of the 2016-17 Pre-Champs Manual (forgot that downloaded it my iPad). The change actually took place last year.

Thanks.  I don't believe that the new policy was ever applied last year.
