    Default Cal Poly keeping boris and DesRoches OUT of Midlands ??

    SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Cal Poly will send a small group of wrestlers to compete in the 49th Annual Ken Kraft Midlands Championships on Thursday and Friday at Welsh-Ryan Arena on the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill.

    Head coach Brendan Buckley will take with him six wrestlers, including Ryan Smith at 197 pounds and Atticus Disney (pictured at right) at 285 pounds, but will keep a pair of No. 3 nationally ranked wrestlers, Boris Novachkov, ranked No. 3 at 141 pounds by WIN Magazine, Amateur Wrestling News and WrestlingReport.com, and Ryan DesRoches, the No. 3-ranked wrestler at 174 pounds by WIN Magazine, InterMat and WrestlingReport.com, home for the rest of the holidays.

    That makes that 174 bracket just that much more shallow.

    Shame we won't get the Marion/Novachkov match though.

    No reason as to why? Budgetary? Want to keep their rankings high? Injury?

    I hate it when coaches pull this crap for no apparent reason.

    Because Brendan Buckley has chosen to be my arch-nemesis. Game on, sir. Game on.

    That's all I can think of...I think they should get dinged for it unless they can prove injury or budgetary hardship.

    Both guys have just competed in 2 straight very tough tournaments in their own right. Desroches won both and Novachkov won one while losing to Mangrum and Russell, both top 5, in the other. So...yeah.
