Miklus' Moves Make Him Wrestler of the Week

Plenty of ranked guys matched up on the mats with many of them tasting defeat over the weekend. But the guy who made the loudest noise was Missouri redshirt freshman Willie Miklus. Miklus came from behind to record a huge 9-7 upset victory over No. 2 Jack Dechow of Old Dominion in overtime. The third period efforts from the young Tiger are what helped him earn the victory. In the final period Miklus gained an escape, gave up a takedown, managed to escape again before securing the match-tying takedown to send things into overtime. Dechow’s...

How Dave Schultz Saved Jeff Jordan's Big Ten Title

Weight cutting in the sport of wrestling is pretty much a given unless you are a heavyweight. It’s just a part of wrestling that makes our great sport tougher and more challenging. Some wrestlers are good weight cutters and others “suck” at it. I was one of those wrestlers that always made weight and usually cut a lot of weight. I had it down to a science, I thought. There was one time, however, in my college career that I would not have made weight but for the help of Dave Schultz. It was my senior year and I had just won the...

The early signing period for wrestling came to a close on Wednesday. By our count, over 300 wrestlers committed to DI programs. Like every recruiting cycle, wrangling a good class depends on a lot of factors: weight class need, money available, geography, etc., etc. Below we'll take a look at the Top 5 big winners in the Class of 2015 sweepstakes. But before we do that, let's note some other programs that impressed us with their recruiting ability thus far. Outside our Top 5, Purdue, South Dakota State, Princeton and Harvard all had very stron...

JR Big Board Notes Willie Saylor, Sr. Editor The Top Ten stands pat in personnel with only a couple minor changes in order. Yeah, I know Isaiah White took a loss. But his skill set displayed this offseason makes me even more convinced of his college potential (which is what the class rankings are all about). The rankings here are reflective of what I deem to be the order of value in recruiting. As such, they don’t always coincide with weight class rankings which are derived from a more objective, process-driven criteria. New #11 with Chad...

Team Rankings The Top 10 Blair edges OPRF and Sem in the first edition of the Asics Team Rankings. You can consider them in their own ‘tier’ as the front runners for the national title. All three rosters are built well enough that they can compete with each other in all types (deep and shallow tournaments and duals) of formats. But can’t Graham outscore Sem at Ironman? Of course. As in the case every year, format plays a big part in results. Graham has more ‘studs’ but Sem is more balanced. While Graham could (I d...

A Fortunate Layover with Dave Schultz

The greatest leaders have an ability to connect with people on an emotional level. Dave Schultz had a magnetic personality that drew people to him. His energy and carefree spirit had a way of infecting everyone around him. Schultzy could take a bad situation and turn it into an awesome memory. Such an event happened my senior year in college. We had just finished wrestling the Las Vegas Invitation and our nonstop flight from Vegas to Chicago got cancelled. We in turn had to fly from Vegas to Los Angeles and then had a four hour layover be...
