Thread: Results in Conf Tourneys vs NCAA's

    Default Results in Conf Tourneys vs NCAA's

    I was looking through some results of last year's tournaments (conference and NCAA's) and was surprised by some of the results. I counted 3 NCAA champs that didn't win their conference tournaments: Dake, Amuchastegui, Rey. Also this year's #1 ranked LeBlanc didn't win his conferrence tournament last year either. Even UVU's Kjar who came in #4 at the NCAA's at 125, only came in 3rd in the WAC. These noted results were far from exhaustive.

    One of my past favorite's was Molinaro as a FR placing 8th at the B1G's and needing a wildcard to get into the NCAA's and then coming in 8th.

    What significant disparities have you noted between conference results and NCAA results--especially low conference placings and then winning the NCAA's.

    AMU always wrestles better at Nats than any other time. Covington beat him like a drum then AMU reaches the finals. Look at his career -same thing every year.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Yes, all 3 guys mentioned were runners-up in conference before winning at NCAA's. I was surprised at how badly Bennet beat Amu in the Pac 10's. I sure am looking forward to seeing a Ruth vs Amu final. Hope we get it!

    Quentin Wright appears to have a gear that he can turn on at NCAA's but his opponents know that now I think. I do NOT think he repeats however. Someone will rise up and meet his intensity. It may be someone people don't expect...an opponent that has faced him a number of times perhaps?

    I could be wrong here, but I think J Jaggers finished 3rd in the Big Ten tournament both years he won the NCAA.

    I see where this is going...

    Actually I wasn't thinking Steinhaus.
