We dont have very many returning and lost some good guys last year. Its gonna take a little bit to get back to the top again.
It is legit that we aren't ranked high right now. We graduated a lot of talent last year. If we are still 25th at the end of the season, then I'll be worried.
are national duals based on last year's results or
do we have to "earn our way in"?
5 of the top ten from the Big Ten. That sounds like a tough league right there.
We graduated a lot and kicked our 125 off the team. This is legit.
We have to earn it.
Some schools in there that I've never heard of:
I didn't know there were two schools in Iowa.
How many schools in Div I actually wrestle anymore?
Is that the lowest ISU has been ranked in forever?
Wow.... that stings. I know we're going to be a really young team and we graduated a lot last year... but wow.
I thought during all the conference realignment talks everyone on this board was saying that Boise State didn't have anything other than the football team. According to this, it seems they also wrestle pretty well.
I would love to see ISU wrestle some of those teams like American and I am guessing would crush them. Didn't ISU crush Cornell last year? Even with a lot of seniors gone, ISU could stay with them.
