Thread: What Division 1 Programs would you bring back?

    Grips--I think you're right that Dave Schultz started at UCLA, although he got his fame at Oklahoma. Someone else may verify that for sure.

    In terms of teams that I would like to see come back, I'm thinking back to programs that were once highly ranked and dropped. Syracuse was already mentioned. Gene Mills was super fun to watch--I miss his style. UCLA as well had some great wrestlers, although I don't ever recall them being top 10 as a team. Also, this may be before some of your's time, but there were some good SEC schools in the past. Most SEC schools didn't have wrestling, but the few that did had some pretty good teams: Auburn, LSU, Tennessee and Kentucky. Each of those had national champs or highly ranked guys. Iowa State's Jackson started at LSU. Jimmy Carr wrestled at Kentucky. Clar Anderson wrestled for Auburn before going to Ok State. It would be great to have wrestling grow in the south and good college programs could help the struggling high school programs there. There are plenty of good athletes in the south. Football and basketball doesn't have to get all of them! My friends in the south can't believe that when I grew up we'd get more people to a wrestling meet than to a basketball game (State College, PA).

    I would go the route of big schools with little-to-no D1 representation:

    * Texas
    * Kansas
    * Colorado
    * Florida or FSU
    * Washington

    1. University of Oregon
    2. University of Washington
    3. Washington State University
    4. UCLA
    5. USC


    I would love to see the Pac 10 have more than 3 schools in the conference.

    If I could add some other schools that are not D1 I would add:
    1. Eastern Oregon Universtiy
    2. Eastern Washington University
    3. Chemeketa Community College

    I guess it is now, I know they won a national title right before their program was cut (NAIA I believe).
