I actually feel your pain buck. After tieing for the Big XII title OU manages 1 AA

But a plus for OU is that Woodley only lost to #5 Warner by one point (2-1). Think positive, Vise.

Iowa #1 seeds are tanking.  It looks like it is left to Spencer Lee to pull out a championship.  Apparently he is going last or something because I cannot find a result for him.

PSU on the other hand just about to get their 3rd champ.

They altered the line-up, Lee is last.  Don't know why since it will probably the least competitive.

What was your take on the tournament? I thought ESPN did a good job with the coverage. I had a TV next to my laptop so I could watch the TV broadcasts and bring up two ESPN+ streams, to get a page with the multiview of all eight mats, and another page with the individual bout I wanted to watch at the time. I also had a page with Trackwrestling so I could keep up with the scoring and brackets. I got a lot of enjoyment out of all three days of the action.

I had seen a few projections with OkState getting a 6th place team finish, and I was hoping they would do better. My only reason for pessimism was mspart's analysis of the Big 12 tournament, and his suggestion that OkState's wrestlers have trouble wrestling up to their seeds. I wanted to see how that worked out this time, and came up with the following:

          Seed    Finish
125     #21     DNP, lost to #12 and #19
133     #1      #2
149     #4      #4
157     #33     #8
165     #10     #4
174     #18     DNP, lost to #2 and #16
184     #11     #5
197     #4      #1
285     #29     DNP, lost to #4 and #9

The way I figure it, the only failure to wrestle up to seed was at 133. But Fix's 21.0 team points were a major contributor to the satisfaction I got from seeing OkState finish in 3rd place. I was also relieved that the only wrestler I heard about getting punished for bad language was not one of OkState's guys.

I hope everyone enjoyed watching the tournament as much as I did. I would be happy for anyone else to post a seeding performance chart like mine for their favorite team.

Ferrari's dad was on the screen for about 4 seconds during the match, and about 10 seconds afterward when Ferrari ran up into the stands and hugged him. Sorry, I didn't pay any attention to his attire. Maybe he'll show up at the medal ceremony and you can see him then.

You missed 4 PSU guys wrestling Oklahoma State style to win individual titles, support for Stanford wrestling, Ferrari bleeding again, Gable being way better than anybody else, and Spencer Lee revealing in the post match interview that he tore his ACL in the 2nd period vs. Mueller in the 2019 finals, and then dominated two seasons of NCAA wrestling and Sr. Nationals with a torn ACL. Then he tore his other ACL a couple weeks ago and claimed that he can now barely wrestle, but still outscored his opponents 58-8 on his way to another national title, and then saying he didn't say anything until now because "excuses are for wusses" and he didn't want to use it as an excuse if he happened to lose. Pretty stale wrestling overall though. Not really a single match I'd call exciting.

Not sure why Spencer feels he needs to talk like a Brands?  Sounds idiotic.

Ferrari bleeding again,


A dehydration bleed for sure.  Notice he didn't break a sweat, it wasn't because of an easy bout. He also said his walk around is 220-225 and will moving to heavyweight at some point. Good luck, better be prepared for Steveson to be around 3 more years.
