    Des Moines Register has ISU with 10 NCAA Qualifiers...can someone give me a more reliable source?

    I don't understand why you have a problem with the sources given. I read them as saying 10 are going, too.

    Are you telling me that 38 out of 50 entries make it to NCAA's? That's 76%.

    Yeah, but it's not like some guy is throwing a dart at board with qualifying numbers on it. The Big 12 earns those 38 spots at NCAAs.

    This is true. They rarely go 2 and out. You putting ten through is certainly going to make it a tougher road for Iowa. I am afraid Minny MAY put 10 through but won't be able to wrestle two of them. I think Minny proved what they were made of yesterday.

    Today could be a different story but I finally saw what this team was capable yesterday for the first time all year. Kish showed some guts battling through back injuries to qualify for Nationals before having to bow out. Not sure what happened to C.P. but the hammy/knee doesn't sound good.

    Hopefully Kish's back will continue to improve, and while a dislocated shoulder is nothing to sneeze at, if they got it back in with no lasting damage, it hopefully won't be a factor.

    As far as CP, we saw with DS what a hammy can do. From what I read on the Guillotine, I think he would have been able to go if he absolutely had to (like NCAAs), and holding him out was just the smart thing to do.

    The good thing going for them, is that CP and Kish will have only wrestled 2 and 3 matches, respectively, in the past month leading up to NCAAs.

    I know that's a lot of hoping, but like I said, if ISU can't win it, the Gophers better.
