2016-2017 Wrestling
The wrestling schedule was released and it features a lot of home action with matches against Ohio State and Oklahoma State, as well as CSU for the first time in a number of years.

Graduated Baxter, DePalma, McGuire, Miller and Buckwater. That's a lot of NCAA qualifiers. We have some talent but they have to prove themselves this year. I was a little surprised by ninth but the lower third was not surprising. Finishing in the top 20 in the NCAA takes two good wrestlers. Winning the MAC needs more depth. Remember we only finished fourth last year.

RE: 2016-2017 Wrestling
In a nutshell:

0 seniors on the roster
Only 5 juniors return
No NCAA qualifiers return
Conel (197 NCAA qualifier) is not on the roster. According to Twitter, he's done with wrestling
19 freshman (true or RS)
7 sophomores

The composition of the roster is as such because Coach Moore was the primary recruiter and his last 2 recruiting classes (sophomores and juniors) were not particularly strong. Coach Hill brought in some serious talent but they are young. We will take our lumps this year due to the youth movement. Without the opportunity to wrestle right away, however, some of the recruits may have gone elsewhere. With our schedule, I hope they're fast learners!

Losing Conel really hurts. He looked like AA material based on his freshman performance.

Yes. Multiple AA material. He was ranked 10th before he quit.

Interesting development. Hopefully he gets back on the mat.

That's good news. If he gets into form it will make the season a bit more interesting. With the team projected to be weaker than it has been lately having a top individual will at least generate some interest.
