Remember the PSU era?

Recommended Posts

It seems like everyone on the psu roster who has the talent has competed in a more difficult tournament than anything offered collegiately. Midlands and scuffle are shells of what they used to be and some weights are downright awful. I would say penn state is out competing other teams atm

I recall when Minnesota would attend the Scuffle, of course PSU beat them pretty soundly every time but I lost track of how many times before they and Cornell quit showing up. 

Koll, B Smith and JRob decided to take their teams to a holiday dual tournament when Carl killed national duals.

I guess better than getting pounded by Penn State year in and year out. That had to be hard to take for those guys.

Ok, by many then. 

PSU fans pretty much. 

Although I do have to agree with the poster above that their guys are still probably seeing better competition that they would have under a "normal" schedule.  For just one example, who was Nick Lee going to see at the Scuffle, or anywhere else up to this point in the season, that is better competition than what he saw last week.

Cael is probably looking into ways to bypass the Big Ten tournament next.

According to some people it’s as simple as stepping on the mat that first round and then FF your way out to a solid NCAA seed.

Aaron Brooks wrestled two former NCAA finalists and Sammy Brooks at the OT qualifier.
Cassar and Nick Lee wrestled as noted above. PSU wrestling does not need to apologize for anything. 


Good point. Cael is probably ALSO working on revisions to the seeding mechanisms to take those freestyle results into account.

I don't think he is too worried about the seeds of Cassar, Lee or Brooks.

I will tell you what is funny, though. Brooks beats Weiler to break into the rankings at Flo at the lowly #25 spot, 19 places lower than Nelson Brands. Then his reward for beating Max Dean and some other guys at Oly Trials Qualifier is Flo kicks him out of their rankings entirely. Too funny.

Sammy Brooks.  Those are 2 pretty big wins, even in another style.  I'm not too worried about it, Brooks will take care of himself in conference and nationals.

Common sense should be a criteria for rankings. Its a joke to only go by results and not look at the bigger picture.
