Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.
One, two, Evans is coming for you...
I have to agree with Zapp on this. What if Cael ends up running the program into the ground in the next 5 years? I don't think he will in fact I see PSU as a title contender for the next couple of years at least, but for all we know he may just be a flash in the pan as a coach and never achieve anything again. With so many incredible wrestlers having come from PSU I would think that there would be some better choices.

There is deep competition just for the Iowa 125/126 pounder Rushmore. I have Terry Brands, Randy Lewis, Barry Davis, and Matt McDonough on the mountain with Jeff McGinness, Brad Penrith and Mike Mena being tough omissions, and Jody Strittmatter and Charlie Falck being noteworthy themselves.
I wouldn't even put Falck in the conversation. I'd put Whittmer on it before him and he only wrestled on varsity one year.
