Interesting had to look it up Temple cuts their program the same year they have a NCAA champ. Looks like they returned in 2014 and are still going.

Look at several of the hwt champs from that era and note the schools that dropped. Can include Oregon State as they dropped for that summer and reinstated

Temple wrestling didn't return, they started a student club in 2014.  They only have 7 Men's varsity sports and Wrestling isn't one of them, unfortunately.

Temple also had a finalist in 1981.  Unseeded Tony Mantella lost in the final to the 8 seed Tom Martucci from TCNJ/Trenton State in a thoroughly busted bracket at 190lbs.  TCNJ still has wrestling and they are D3 as they were in 1981.  Is Martucci the only D3 wrestler to win D1 NCAAs?

My bad I should have read the article instead of the headline. Nice post Jersey more of these should be done kinda cool to dig into a little information at a time.
