Who is the FACE of each major program?

Recommended Posts

Picking a currently rostered wrestler as the face of the major programs:

For Iowa it is easy -- Mr. Spencer Lee

For Minnesota it is Gable Steveson

For Ohio State it is Kollin Moore.

For Rutgers it is Nick Suriano.

For OK St it is Daton Fix.

For Mizzou it is Jaydin Eireman.

For Michigan it is Alec Pantaleo.

For Wisconsin it is Evan Wick.

For Az State it is Zahid Valencia.

For Cornell it is Yianni D.

 

Did I get any of these wrong?

 

Who is it for Penn State?  Mark Hall?

Pantaleo graduated, so that one would be wrong.  Otherwise no objections based on your criteria.

I don't think it's a bad topic--I do think it would be more interesting if you don't limit it to the active roster. e.g. David Taylor being the face of Penn State. 

What you're essentially doing right now is just naming the best wrestler on every roster.

Fair enough.  What would be your list if you opened it up to any wrestler? 

 

I guess Dake would be for Cornell.  Ringer for OK State?

Cornell is interesting.  It's still Dake in my eyes, he's the golden child (and b2b world champ).  But Yianni is gaining on him quickly--being active on the roster helps.

Agree on Nebraska, definitely Burroughs.  

Mizzou is also interesting. It's either Askren or Cox but both have left the program.  Eierman is good but not transcendent, so really I would say that mantle is up for grabs right now.

Iowa... if we're excluding Dan Gable I think Spencer Lee qualifies.  He's not as big as Metcalf was when Metcalf was active but a lot of time has passed.

This.  Plus aren’t some of these guys not “on the roster” due to ORS?

I think all-time or even past 10 years or whatever would be a more interesting discussion.

Give Jimmy a few days and he’ll make that thread separate from this one.

You need to match a wrestler to the personality of the program. Penn State is aristocracy, who is the most self assured, almost arrogant wrestler? I would have said Vincenzo Joseph except he didn't win the championship this year. Iowa has a lot of resentment and a chip on the shoulder, that would be Austin Desanto.

Evan Wick is a work in progress, that does match Wisconsin.

For Rutgers you could pick just about any of the Jersey boys.

Et cetera.

I don’t think it will take long for Shane Griffith or real woods to be the face of Stanford

For Michigan:  Of all most recent athletes, Adam Coon.  For current rostered athletes, probably Myles Amine.
