EIWA Tournament

They lost by 18 in Laramie. Ever wonder why Wyoming wrestles a lot better and home than on the road? Wyoming lost to Fresno who lost to Bakersfield who, which isn't fully funded by the way, lost to Wyoming. With the exception of the Big Ten and a few random teams everybody in the country is pretty much on par.

I can answer that.  It's because the gale force wind and bitter cold puts their opponents in a catatonic state of shock.  If duals were held in summer, Wyoming wouldn't win a match.

The EIWA is horrible. Half the teams wouldn't be in the USA top 25 for High Schools. The fan support is nowhere. Sacred Heart  would have a hard time placing in the PA middle school tournament. Hofstra is fully funded and just pathetic from where they were years ago. Franklin and Marshall and Harvard can combine their teams and probably wouldn't score more then 10 team points. Army and Navy are at a all-time low. Tournament stinks! 

Keep talking like this and we will have more dropped programs. No reason to keep them around if we have great fans like you. Support D1 wrestling.

Folks, let's ignore the clearly one over the top negative take and focus on the wrestling at hand.   Don't let said discussion dominate this thread.  

I'm very curious to see how much energy Araju has after his second weighin this am.

Kolodzik loses, showed no urgency there.  Not sure what's up with him, but he isn't the same guy right now.

He had 35 seconds to get a takedown, but seemed like he was not trying to get one. Weird.

The EIWA is down as a conference this year when compared to years past when it was a bit more talent-laden.  But let's be serious.  I don't think there are many physical education majors in the Ivy League or at Army, Navy, Lehigh, Bucknell, etc.  Also, which schools in the EIWA can give athletic scholarships for wrestling other than Lehigh?  If so, how many scholarships do they even award?  

The EIWA will never be the Big 10 for academic reasons and financial reasons.  

Academics? Half the schools in EIWA are nowhere near some Big 10 schools

Hofstra might have the worst Athletic Department in America...Couple years ago they dropped a pretty good football program...Now it looks like they might want to drop Wrestling...They were a top 20 team in a great area for Wrestling not too long ago...They hire Dennis P and the Program has just nosedived (zero fan base and zero production)...Hofstra can be good but they have probably the 2nd worst Head Coach in USA (McCoy 1st )..15th place in EIWA (Dennis will probably be happy they outscored Sacred Heart)..Someone needs to stop this debacle before they are dropped!
