Cowboy's put 9 in the finals, lone exception being Rosholt who got pinned by Rutt. Dieringer, Howe, and Perry all with quick falls.

May  have had a ViceGrip head explosion as Lester got ridden out to lose 1-0 to Collica again.

Cowboy's finally see some action this year. There are a few potentially good matchups here.

Sooner redshirts Patterson and Rupp are there otherwise the finals may look like an OSU/Mizzou dual.

Oliver and Kindig in the same bracket, no Gelogaev.

Noticed a few Hawkeye reserves also in the brackets.

Brackets on trackwrestling.

College / Big XII?

So what is the deal with the Big XII for next season?  Are they still going to have just a four team conference tournament with W Va & Mizzou switching spots? None of the original three teams have released a schedule for this year, is there a change on the horizon?

Other Sports / Big XII to expand?
« on: January 31, 2012, 08:29:14 PM »
I’ve written a lot about Big 12 expansion over the past few weeks and I have to admit that something doesn’t smell right.

There is no doubt in my mind that Clemson and FSU are talking to the Big 12. I’ve been able to verify that discussions are talking place via independent sources. I just can’t fathom why 2 of the 3 premier football programs in the ACC would want out.

I had thought that the threat of the SEC reaching out to snag Virginia Tech and North Carolina State was the motivating factor in the talks, but I no longer believe that to be the case.

Yesterday I reached out to a friend who works for the SEC in Birmingham, Alabama and two acquaintances close to the VPI program and asked them about SEC expansion. Neither my SEC contact nor my friends at VPI thought much of the idea.

Apparently the SEC is happy at 14 and would only make the move to 16 if the schools involved would add significant value and/or academic prestige the SEC. My contact at the SEC does believe expansion isn’t finished and he believes the SEC will eventually get to 16, just not anytime soon.

My friend did confirm that the SEC wanted to expand into North Carolina but he also said that North Carolina State was a “constituent” of UNC and would require the permission of at least two members of UNC’s Board of Governors before they could make any more – and that’s not going to happen.

The news from VPI wasn’t much better. As I’ve previously written Frank Beamer is dead-set against the Hokies leaving the ACC. Virginia Tech AD Jim Weaver is reportedly at least willing to listen to an SEC offer but Hokie president Charles Steger is likely to take the Beamer’s advice over Weaver’s despite the money involved.

My take is that neither VPI nor NCST are going anywhere—and down goes my theory about SEC expansion pushing Clemson and FSU to the Big 12.

Yet I know Clemson and FSU are talking to the Big 12. Why?

The likely explanation is money. Last year Fox signed a $1.17 billion deal with the Big 12 that pays the current ten schools in the conference approximately $90 million a year through the 2024-25 season.

Combine that with the $60 million annual revenue the conference receives from ESPN for first-tier football rights and the newest contract puts the Big 12's television revenue on par with the Big 10 and SEC.

Yet the $150 million the Big 12 receives per year is based on a 10 member conference. What happens to those revenues if the Big 12 expanded to 12 or 14 by adding quality programs with both a national following and huge home television markets?

What happens is the television contract gets reworked. And the last time that happened the Big 12 more than quadrupled their television money despite losing both Nebraska and Colorado.

An anonymous source at WVU tells me that plans for a Big 12 Network are already being vetted and that ESPN has tentatively offered $850 million for the rights to a regional network – and that’s with only 10 teams.

Add FSU, Clemson, BYU and Louisville to the Big 12 and imagine the TV numbers.

Another factor that could be effecting Clemson and FSU’s desire to join the Big 12 is the level of competition. The Big 12—from top to bottom—may be equal with the SEC. If the Big 12 were to expand to 14 and add the four previously mentioned teams many believe it would supersede the SEC as the nation’s premier college football conference and push the dollars involved up for TV rights to astronomical heights.

All this is just conjecture at this point. All I know for certain is that the Big 12 is now actively talking to only four teams – BYU, Louisville, Clemson & FSU.  It’s safe to assume that BYU and Louisville have offers in hand, although there are issues remaining to work out with BYU.

Really excited about this dual coming up Sunday Dec 4th. The Cowboy's have seen limited action so far while the Gophers have already been battle tested. Trying to do this with as little bias as possible but I know that is next to impossible for me, so this is coming from a Cowboy fans perspective.

125: Ladd Rupp beat Jon Morrison to take the starting job so far, after seeing Rupp lose to Iowa St's Finch, mostly because of his inability to get out from underneath, I think we'll see Morrison here. Morrison  beat Sanders  last year in the dual if I remember correctly but I don't think him nor Rupp will be able to beat Sanders this time out.

Sanders dec Morrison 3-0 Gophers

133: Interesting matchup here, don't remember last years result but this match could be a major factor to the dual score. Oliver didn't look like the exceptional wrestler that he is  in the All-Star match but looked dominant against his totally out-manned Cyclone opponent. Oliver really needs to score bonus points here but Thorn is very highly ranked, I'll give JO a 12-4 major decision.

Oliver maj Thorn 4-3 Cowboy's

141: Another interesting match, I know nothing about Dardanes but being ranked in the top 15 he can't be too bad. Kindig looked very good on the freestyle circuit this past summer, beating the Gopher's starting 149 pounder and looked great in his only match this season against Ia St.

Kindig dec Dardanes 7-3 Cowboy's

149: Jamal Parks is back for his senior season and has looked better than he ever has this year. Parks has had trouble getting out from bottom in the past but has worked very hard on improving in this position. Ness, if anything like his brother, will be  a beast on top, the key is will he be able to keep Parks off of his legs in the neutral position. Gopher fans are very high on Dylan Ness but I think the experience of Parks will be the difference maker in this match.

Parks dec Ness 10-3 Cowboy's

157: definitely a toss up match here. Albert White is coming back from injury and really hasn't wrestled much in OSU orange. Deitchler is finally wrestling for Minnesota after redshirt/Olympic ordeal/injury...This is a hard one to call since both have excellent credentials but not much mat time in their collegiate careers. I'll give it to the home team just because.

White dec Deitchler 13-3 Cowboy's

165: Dallas Bailey has zero offense from his feet. He does have the potential to throw from there but after being scouted that has been few and far between. These guys wrestled close last year if memory serves so I don't think we'll see any bonus points scored here.

Yohn dec Bailey 13-6 OSU

174: Chris McNeil is a senior that has seen limited time in his career. A good solid wrestler but nothing flashy. Will Storley be back for this dual? Know nothing about him but he is highly ranked. I would give him the advantage, based solely on his national ranking.

Storley dec McNeil 13-9 OSU or Mcneil dec Ortiz 16-6 OSU

184: Chris Perry has been a bit of a disappointment to me so far in his career. I know he was just a freshman last year but with his high school and freestyle credentials I guess I expected a little more. He doesn't look as soft as he did last year but his victory in the UCM Open Finals was underwhelming at best. Steinhaus beat Perry pretty good in last years dual but I expect a lot closer match this year, giving Steinhaus the victory here just on last years result though /i truly believe that Perry has the potental to win this match.

13-12 OSU

197: Is Byers as good as advertised? I guess we'll find out here. Winner of this match probably gets the #2 seed at NCAA's. I am going to give Yohn the win here, I haven't been that impressed with Byers in what little action I have seen from him this year.

15-13 Gophers

285: The legend of the Russian continues here as Gelogaev throws Nelson to his back and wins the dual for the good guys!!

19-15 Cowboy's!!!   8)

Don't know what kind of competition the Cowboy's will see here since Mizzou has a dual with Purdue today. OU is supposed to be sending a few backups/redshirts.

I guess this will be, in essence, an OSU ranking tournament.
