He also didn't enter as a freshman for NCAA related reasons, not the amount of school he had completed.
It isn't the low placement that bothers me as much as the things that have gone on for the last 6 years. Very little wrestling above seed, especially in comparison to other teams. Atrocious Rounds of 12. Lack of toughness, lack of discipline etc. That is what bothers me.
I'm guessing next year's lineup is:
125: Brian Crutchmer
133: Jon Morrison
141: Jordan Oliver
149: Josh Kindig (God let us have the money to get a decent transfer here so he can redshirt)
157: Alex Dierenger
165: Dallas Bailey
174: Chris Perry
184: Chris Chionuma
197: Blake Rosholt
285: Alan Gelogaev
Can't see Morrison or Rupp staying down next year, and it sounded incredibly likely at nationals that Oliver was going up, I'm skeptical of Chionuma being effective at 184, but he weighs 195 now, hopefully Rosholt stays, hopefully Gelogaev gets his extra year. I think Morrison and Oliver coming in and getting to focus on just wrestling will be really good. I hope Bailey decides to focus on wrestling not drinking this summer.
