    Default IU's B1G record since 1991

    W--L--T

    47-118-2

    If you do NOT believe me go to the IU home page and click on Archives and do the math yourself . What other school in what other sport would tolerate a 22 year winning % of 29% ? No one !
    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.

    Would it make you feel any better to know that Penn State has gone 90-196 in the Big Ten since 1995 (Jerry Dunn took over that year)?
    That's a pretty 31%. Obviously their pre-season cupcake games improve the overall record, but wrestling doesn't schedule total mismatches to the level that basketball does, so I think the conference record is a good reflection of how awful PSU has been.

    If I could take out 2 years, I think their conference record drops to like 19%.

    Bruce Parkhill, who coached before Dunn, won 41% of his conference games. Amazingly, he looks quite good!

    Indiana will be fine next year,they have had to put kids in spots that they should not have been in due to injuries this year. Wisconsin was in bad shape last year and came back this year some. None of their kids that are starters are graduating. They will get the wrestlers weights together preseason and have a much more well rounded team. The big ten teams are very tough and very young, and will be strong for years. Indiana has some nice talent there now ,but needs to get them in the weights that are most productive. When you have injuries and holes the team has a tough time coming together.With 2 starters getting season ending injuries in the first dual they scrambled to put a team on the mat and the difficulties soon followed. The new coaches have the team headed in the right direction.

    Crewdad--I've read a lot about a pattern of IU wrestlers over the years having to wrestle below their ideal weights. Would you say that this year some are doing so just because of the injuries? The first 3 or 4 weights have guys wrestling at lower weights than they used to (or were projected to wrestle at the beginning of the year).

    Jerry Dunn lasted 8 years.
    Ed DeChellis left after 6. Rumor has it he was looking for more support, saw he wasn't going to get it, and left for a smaller/lesser program while he could (no offense to the naval academy) .
    Pat Chambers is in his second year, and is currently 0-11 in the B10. I forgot to include this year's stats. That brings us to 90-297. Barring a miracle, Penn State will run the table in the conference this season, adding 8 more losses, getting us to 90-305 (29.5% winning percentage).
