Thread: 4-Time B1G Champs

  1. #1

    Default 4-Time B1G Champs

    Kellen Russell became the 11th four-time B1G Champ...Who was the last to do it (maybe Cole Konrad? Or did he lose 1 to Rowlands?)...During the broadcast they named 3, as they are current B1G coaches (Brands, Goldman, Heffernan)...Can anyone enlighten me on the rest? What a great accomplishment for Russell, considering that the conference has been loaded with great 141's the last few years (I think at one point last season the Top 5 ranked in the country were all B1G guys- Russell, Marion, Thorn, Kennedy, Alton), and that Russell didn't take a red-shirt until after his sophomore season.

    I seem to recall thinking that Ironside went to a JUCO before going to Iowa, am I crazy?

    Gantry yes you are crazy. Ironside obviously wrestled at Iowa like hootie posted.

    Russell is the first non-Iowa wrestler to do it since 1973. I agree that he's had to do it against some pretty tough competition, especially last year when you had Thorn, Kennedy and Alton added to the mix (which collectively I think is stronger than H Stieber, Dardanes and Sueflohn).

    I am more amazed that for 10 years Gable had a 4x B1G Champ always in the works if not more.

    For his first two titles the conference had the eventual National Champion (Jaggers) at the weight.
