Brackastrology is back, and marginally better than ever! Nomad and Spey return to lend their expertise and predict all 33 qualifiers for the 2019 NCAA Wrestling Championships in Pittsburgh.

Will these predictions be accurate? Of course not, we are just now entering December, and Spey and Nomad can not literally predict the future, as much as they wish they could. So don't expect perfect accuracy. 

However, you may doubt their collective expertise. Heck, you can doubt the stars are fire, or that the sun moves. You can even doubt truth to be a liar, but please never doubt Nomad and Spey's objective, professional integrity in this endeavor. 

Below, please find our comically early 33 NCAA qualifiers at each weight class in addition to a sprinkling of bubble contenders.

For about a decade, the words “Penn State” and “underdog” didn’t belong in the same sentence — maybe not even the same page. Cael Sanderson’s squad brought the crown home to State College eight times since the inception of the last decade, with only Iowa (2010) and Ohio State (2015) disrupting their reign of terror.

Building a dynasty is a complex, laborious task centered around identifying talent and then maximizing that talent once it is in your system. We’ve already focused on what Penn State has in the pipeline with their current and future depth chart, so now it is time to review the areas of need for talent they will soon be identifying, assuming they haven't already.

It's way too early to be doing an all-conference team for the 2020-21 NCAA D1 season, but that won't stop me from publishing them anyway! Here is a way-too-early look at some of the best college wrestlers at each weight from each conference.

College recruiting is a fascinating industry and often it isn't so much about selling new prospects on your program but making sure the wrestlers already verbally committed actually sign their National Letter of Intent. With three wrestlers ranked in the top 31 of the class of 2021 currently verbally committed, I believe that is mainly what the Iowa Hawkeyes will be focusing on leading up to signing day.
