    Three years ago, Short Time host Jason Bryant (that’s me) did a #WrestlingShirtADay challenge with some wrestling fans. The end result was 366 days of different wrestling shirts to promote the sport. After the drop of wrestling at some wannabe school in Norfolk, Virginia, Jim Dutrow wanted to do more to draw awareness to our sport and the #WrestlingShirtADayInMay movement was born. Dutrow, a Virginia native and former college wrestler at some school in Harrisonburg that also dropped wrestling, launched the initiative as a way to recognize schools with wrestling and thank them for their support. The second year #WrestlingShirtADayInMay has seen over 150 wrestling fans showcase over 1,000 shirts and counting just 10 days into the month.

    This coming week, we’ll finally have the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for what will be the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Originally scheduled for Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center, Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas is now the host city. Texas last hosted the Trials in 2000 to then-record crowds. The pandemic will limit attendance, but we’ll still have three styles of wrestling looking to crown champions who will earn the right to represent the United States.    On this episode of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, I’ll look back at the previous six Olympic Trials I’ve worked - four in the U.S. and two in Canada - and talk about some of the memorable moments from them. It starts in 2004 in Indianapolis, then on to Las Vegas in 2008, then Iowa City in 2012 and 2016 and then north of the border in suburban Edmonton in 2015 and Niagara Falls in 2019.   Those dates don’t line up? I’ll explain some on-the-mat and off-the-mat schedules that make things unique in the U.S. and in Canada.

    There’s been a long time between the time I spoke with Cody Goodwin of The Des Moines Register for International Podcast Day. We’d just finished up with the Night of Conflict out in Sioux City, Iowa and were conversing about the state of wrestling coverage. Part of that wrestling coverage discussion is here on Episode 644 of Short Time where the 2019 NWMA National Wrestling Journalist of the Year talks about his foray into podcasting with In The Room, how he talked his bosses at the paper into starting one and how he’s used the medium to cover angles that don’t often get the space in the paper.  You can listen to In The Room wherever podcasts are found (or by clicking here). SHORT TIME SHOTS I went almost two and a half hours on Saturday night as what was supposed to be Burroughs-Taylor turned into Adeline-Tamyra. To be balanced, it would be Gray-Mensah-Stock, but that’s too many hyphens to write out cleanly. What did I go two and a half hours with? Watchin’ Wrestling. This was the idea when I built the Speakeasy and I want to thank Bryan Hazard, Tony Rotundo, Zach Bogle, J.P. Pearson, Dysen Gould, Earl Smith, Jeremy Lanthorn and Austin Early for joining in the discussion. We sat around, had some beverages (not Dysen) and watched the wrestling and talked about it. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do with this studio.    Burroughs and Taylor will face off on January 13 on Flowrestling as Taylor had some contact tracing that forced him to delay. Speaking of Burroughs, he was on The Joe Rogan Experience, which is a Spotify exclusive, for a while. I’m still trying to finish it because it was a long episode, but so far, we as a sport are better because we have such great ambassadors like Jordan Burroughs.    The NWCA released the new Top 25 today and Illinois and Michigan State entered the Top 25, giving the Big Ten 12 teams ranked in the Top 25 for the first time in history. Michigan State started out the year ranked at No. 21, but dropped out after a week. The Spartans popped back in and prior to the preseason ranking two weeks ago, the last time a wrestling team based in East Lansing was ranked on the college mats was 2009. Northern Colorado moved up to No. 23. Bear down. Also, checked the mail today and got some socks and a t-shirt from Dr. Joe Parisi, an administrator at Central Methodist University and former head wrestling coach at Lindenwood. Also in the mail was the sweatshirt I got from contributing to San Francisco State University. Hat tip to Jason Welch.

    Afsoon Johnston and her remarkable, trailblazing path

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 6, 2021 64:01

    Afsoon Johnston, then known as Afsoon "Sue" Roshanzamir, was the first world medalist in women's wrestling back in 1989. Afsoon will talk about the book, Afsoon, written by Craig Sesker, that tells the story of how she and her family fled Iran in the early 1980s and landed in California. Her journey made her somewhat of an outcast in an era where tensions between the U.S. and Iran were high. She gravitated towards wrestling, a sport where girls were rare. Afsoon's breaks down the story of how the book came to be and discusses some of the turmoil she experienced growing up as a teen and as a wrestler. You can get the book at AfsoonWrestling.com SHORT TIME SHOTS Well, we’ve got Division I teams taking the mats all over the place and before I get corrected by my own correction, college wrestling has been ongoing since early November and that does include Division I. On November 14, The Citadel wrestled a home dual. The NAIA has been less prolific than normal, but they’ve had dual meets consistently. Now we have schedules for most of the 71 teams competing this year on the Division I mats. There’s a handful of Division II schools that aren’t competing - the schools in the PSAC, most notably. Division III has seen a number of conferences opt out, but the only all-sports conference where every school sponsors wrestling in Division III is the American Rivers Conference, formerly known as the Iowa Conference. We’ll see some Division III fire up this weekend. Speaking of Division III, Case Western Reserve head coach Danny Song stepped down from his post yesterday. Case is one of those schools that opted out of sports this winter. Before we get to the weekend’s action, we had a couple of matches in Division II on Tuesday. Coker topped Emmanuel 31-18 down in Franklin Springs, Georgia, while fifth-ranked McKendree shut out Kentucky Wesleyan 51-0 on the strength of five falls. Tyler Delaware picked up a 9-5 win at 133, he’s a transfer from some poorly ran Division I school in Norfolk, Virginia. The NWCA Division I Coaches Poll was released on Tuesday and for the first time since the Nixon administration, Northern Colorado is nationally ranked. The last time the Bears were ranked by the NWCA was when they were sixth heading into the postseason on March 5, 1969. The school wasn’t even known as Northern Colorado yet, it was still Colorado State College. The University of Northern Colorado’s name came to be in 1970. With five returning NCAA qualifiers the Bears topped Wyoming 24-19 over the weekend and with both teams receiving votes last week, that was all Troy Nickerson’s squad needed to jump in at No. 25. But wait, Northern Colorado wasn’t Division I until like 2008 or something right? True, but prior to the three divisional format, the NCAA championship was open and there were college and university divisions. Prior to 1963, there was only one NCAA championship. Schools like Northwestern would routinely dual teams like Wheaton and Elmhurst. The artist formerly known as Colorado State College lived atop the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. There’s a lot of history and wrestling tradition in Greeley and its nice to see what coach Nickerson has done to keep the kids home and put a ranked team on the mat for the first time in nearly 19,000 days. On the Network, new show releases from On the Mat with Austin Gomez and the #PackMentality Pop-Ins Podcast with Pat Popolizio. The latest shout out goes to new team member Brenner Flaten.

    Kicking off the Keep Fresno State Wrestling movement

    On October 16, California State University, Fresno announced it was dropping men’s tennis, women’s lacrosse, and for the second time in school history, men’s wrestling. After a decade-long quest to bring the sport back to campus in 2016, a new quest has been started by Keep Fresno State Wrestling. In conjunction with USA Wrestling, the National Wrestling Coaches Association and Flowrestling, the Keep Fresno State Wrestling group will kickoff its official efforts on Monday, December 21 at 6 p.m. Pacific with a panel of wrestling coaches, athletes, and alumni. That discussion will be streamed live on Flowrestling.org and also available via Zoom.  The panel will highlight and celebrate the strong history of Fresno State wrestling, not just with its on the mat successes, but the post-collegiate success and leadership of its alumni in the Central Valley and the state of California. Among those participating with local Fresno ties are former head coach Dennis DeLiddo, current Beat the Streets Los Angeles Executive Director Yero Washington, and wrestling World medalist, Olympian and UFC champion Daniel Cormier, who is the high school wrestling coach at Gilroy High School, two hours west of Fresno. Current Fresno State athletes are also expected to participate.  Also included in the discussion will be World and Olympic champions John Smith, the current head coach at Oklahoma State and Jordan Burroughs. The panel will be moderated by Hall of Fame wrestling broadcaster Jason Bryant.  “We feel this is a valuable opportunity for the wrestling community to be able to share in the development of what the alumni is doing to try to keep the program at Fresno State,” said Mike Moyer, Executive Director of the NWCA. “The Keep Fresno State Wrestling efforts are just ramping up and it’ll be important for the public to understand the goals and mission, fundraising and pledges to make sure we don’t lose another valuable institution in a state that has the highest participation of wrestlers in the country at the high school level.” The Keep Fresno State Wrestling effort wants to highlight the importance of wrestling in the Central Valley, the state of California and the entire sport as a whole. Wrestling is insanely popular in the Fresno area and the opportunity to tap into a successful pool of potential Fresno State students is high. The opportunities offered for wrestling from public institutions at the collegiate level greatly underserve the demand on sheer participation numbers alone.  “There is a lot at stake here with Fresno State announcing that for the second time, their program would be eliminated,” said Brendan Buckley, a Fresno State alum and the current Executive Director of Beat The Streets New York, a non-profit organization whose aim is to make a Lifelong Impact on New York City student-athletes through the benefits and skills acquired by participating in amateur wrestling.  “There is a strong legacy at play and one that has been the crown jewel for Fresno State Athletics. How many programs on Fresno State’s campus can claim 37 individual NCAA All-American honors, 15 Top 25 team finishes or a three-time NCAA champion and Olympic silver medalist?” said Buckley, speaking to the success of the program.  Of the 23 individuals who earned 37 All-American honors on the mats, 18 of them are Californians.  Keep Fresno State Wrestling wants to celebrate the success that wrestling has brought to those students who would have never come to the school if not for wrestling and the impact that legacy has had on thousands of students, athletes or otherwise, who came to Fresno State because they had a teacher, coach or mentor who gained those valuable life skills through wrestling and through it being offered at Fresno State.  Fresno State’s website lists one of its Pride Points with athletics as: “Our student-athletes are expected to do well in school and act as role-models on and off the field, and the University strives to support them in creating championship experiences. “ Every student should be important to a campus and there is a place for wrestling at Fresno State. It’s proven it can be done, Keep Fresno State Wrestling can match those same Pride Points the school celebrates on its website, there are generations of students who will populate the roster and do the Valley proud. Not providing the community an opportunity to represent itself and another “porchlight” for alumni, local taxpayers and potential degree-seeking coaches, teachers and mentors contradicts the mission of the school.  “The program is about much more than any of these impressive accolades. It is about the unique connection to its community, one that not only breeds champions at nearly 100 high schools in the CIF Central Section alone, but also one that was founded upon hard-work as one of the largest agricultural communities in the US,” said Buckley.  “Fresno State Wrestling is far too important for the aspiring student-athletes from these families that look to wrestling as a vehicle to help them achieve and access education and to continue learning the life skills that wrestling instills – skills that will lead them to success long after their days on the mat conclude. Fresno State’s administration should honor this legacy and support the community they call home,” he added.  Said Buckley: “Fresno State’s decision this past October to eliminate the wrestling program should be a sounding bell for every member of the wrestling community, whether you are associated with the Big 12, Pac-12, Big Ten, a Central Valley high school program or a youth program in any other state across the country. We are all connected and we are asking everyone to get involved to help preserve our great sport and to Keep Fresno State Wrestling.”

Moss is an intriguing figure who we will hear more from in the years ahead in both music and wrestling.   SHORT TIME SHOTS (it’s the scores and such, people) On the Grand View watch, the Vikings extended their win streak to 96 in a row with a 31-6 win over Morningside on Thursday. The NAIA also picked up a notable victory since the last time we met as Southeastern (Fla.)  upended The Citadel from Division I 22-14 in Charleston. Key wins registered by Coleman Bryant (no relation), Indiana transfer Blake Rypel and 197-pounder Trillyon Fils-Aim sealed the deal for the Fire! It was the first win over a Division I program in the short history of SEU wrestling. It’s just the second win over a D1 school in ANY sport, the other was a women’s volleyball win over Bethune-Cookman in 2013, that according to SEU SID Donnie Smith. The NWCA released the Preseason Division II Top 25 and to no one’s surprise, returning champion St. Cloud State sits atop the rankings, which uses tournament points, and I hate tournament points, but that’s none of my business. Nebraska-Kearney, Central Oklahoma, Lindenwood and McKendree round out the top five. The NJCAA also recognized women’s wrestling as an emerging sport on Friday, of the current schools that sponsor varsity wrestling, there are four NJCAA schools of the 89 women’s teams - there’s also a few junior colleges in the Northwest Conference that sponsor wrestling as well. Women’s wrestling will be up to 89 total schools when the first whistle blows in the 2021-22 season as Avila, an NAIA school in Kansas City announced it was adding men’s and women’s wrestling over the weekend. That will put the NAIA at 38 women’s teams and 73 men’s teams. Did you know the NAIA had 19 schools at the 2000 NAIA championships? Of those 19, only 11 of them remain in the NAIA. So think about the growth of scholarship-level wresting in the NAIA over the past 20 years. Bunch of news internationally, Bajrang won the Flo 8-Man Challenge, the Russian Federation kicked ass at the International World Cup and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rallied to be the Atlanta Falcons. Finally, Patrick Kelly passed along some sad news that longtime Britt-West Hancock wrestling coach Al DeLeon passed away on December 16. DeLeon was a two-time All-American for Minnesota State in 1961 and 1962 at 130 pounds. In 1962 DeLeon fell in the NCAA finals to Mickey Martin of Oklahoma Sate.   All that news and more … Daily Wrestling News, delivered every day, free.   As always, you can support this network, its shows and its projects at mattalkonline.com/jointheteam or rokfin.com/creator/mattalkonline and I’d like to thank you for spending your time with me, because you’ve always got time, for Short Time!     Support the Show and the Mat Talk Podcast Network Patreon | Rokfin The Short Time Time Wrestling Podcast is proudly supported by Compound Sportswear.

In the NAIA, Grand View broke one of college wrestling’s oldest records as the Vikings went 3-0 at the Winter Clash Duals at Missouri Valley to break the all-time dual meet win streak mark. The old record of 92 by SUNY-Delhi was set from 1979-1982. Grand View tied the record earlier this month. In the first dual of the day, Grand View topped ninth-ranked Marian (Ind.) to earn the 93rd in a row to take possession of the record. The Vikings then beat Cumberland University 31-16 and shut out Texas Wesleyan 49-0. I’ll have more breakdowns about Grand View on my Rokfin channel at rokfin.com/mattalkonline. We lost some valued members of the wrestling community over the past few days. Former San Francisco State head coach Lars Jensen passed away last week. Jensen kept the team alive on numerous occasions, but one of the most impressive performances of coaching came in 1997 when he led the Gators to the NCAA Division II wrestling national championship - all without scholarships. Jensen was a legend in the coaching world and a fantastic person. There’s more in the show notes. Read more. Earlier this year, I tracked down Pitt-Johnstown head coach Pat Pecora for a two-part series when he set the collegiate wrestling record for most dual meet wins as a head coach. One of the names he talked about during that interview was four-time All-American John Revesz. In the tradition that is UPJ wrestling, there are always those who come first and those who set the standard for a program - Revesz was it for UPJ - as he was he program’s first four-time All-American. He passed away on Friday due to complications brought on by COVID-19. He was 59. Read more. Finally, we lost an active competitor last week as Virginia Beach native and Johns Hopkins University wrestler Bradlee LaMontagne passed tragically in a boating accident. While I didn’t know Bradlee personally, there were connections not just to my home state and home area of Virginia, but Bradlee’s mom is a patron of the network. Bradlee’s uncles are longtime supporters of wrestling, including the Great Neck Wrestling Club, Cox High School and the former program at ODU. Bradlee picked Johns Hopkins, a Division III school in Baltimore because he wanted to change the world. From everything I knew about him, from high school coaches who coached against him, his college coach Keith Norris, and those in Virginia and specifically those who populate Shorebreak in Virginia Beach, he was a shining star. This kid was going to indeed back up the claim he was going to change the world. He didn’t know how to quit. Norris explained how he was the team captain and how everything he’d heard about him prior to coming to Hopkins exceeded his expectations. Three unique and dynamic people from our sport are gone. May they Rest In Peace and the impact they had on others never be forgotten.

    Glenn Withrow grew up wrestling in Kentucky. A state runner-up in high school, he quickly went into film and over the last several decades, he’s acted, written and produced a number of series’ and films. 

On Episode 637 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Glenn and his wife Hallie Todd and their daughter Ivy Withrow, join the show to talk about the December 8 release of The Last Champion, a film they wrote and directed together with high school wrestling as the backdrop of this story about redemption. 

While the trio have a number of credits to their names, you might recognize Glenn from his role as Tim Shepard in The Outsiders, a book most of us read in middle school and Hallie as Jo McGuire from the Lizzy McGuire series and movie. 

As noted in my previous interview with Cole Hauser, I had a chance to work on the film with them and they’re some of the most accommodating and gracious people I’ve come across. 

The Last Champion is available for pre-order on iTunes and you can find it on Amazon Prime or Google Play on December 8. Info at thelastchampion.comIf you missed my interview with Cole Hauser, you can find at mattalkonline.com/hauser SHORT TIME SHOTS (it’s the scores and such, people)

The event, which starts at 3 p.m. at Top of the Podium in Sterling, will feature 18 bouts with a mix of high school boys, high school girls and one college all-star bout. Information can be found at VirginiaWrestling.com. Live streaming will be available on Trackwrestling.com. SHORT TIME SHOTSThe University of Tennessee at Chattanooga announced on Wednesday that the 2021 Southern Scuffle has been canceled. Full details can be found at GoMocs.com, but congratulations 2020, you’ve already screwed up the first two days of 2021. We know for certain that the Virginia Duals and Southern Scuffle are two tournaments that have been axed for the first part of 2021 and it goes without saying that the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational, which would take place this coming weekend, has also been sacked. The Midlands hasn’t made an official announcement, but the tournament staff has told me it’s not happening this season. Division II Lincoln Memorial, a start-up men’s and women’s program in the mountains of Tennessee announced Andy Bricker as its new Director of Wrestling. That’s a fancy name for saying dude who will oversee both programs and probably hire assistants that are really kind of head coaches for those specific teams.

    John Wright is a disgraced American wrestler who finds himself back in his hometown with a chance at redemption. Cole Hauser plays Wright as he returns to his hometown and finds himself back near a wrestling mat after years away.   On this episode of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Jason Bryant talks with Hauser about the role, the release and production of the film and how he approached taking on a role of a wrestler and wrestling coach for the film.  The film gets released digitally on Apple iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Prime on December 8.Find out more about the film at http://www.thelastchampion.com/SHORT TIME SHOTS (the scores and such)Typically Monday is a wasteland for college wrestling results, it’s one reason why when I coordinate the NWCA Division I Coaches Poll, the results go through the previous week’s results that end on Sunday. I tabulate the poll votes on Monday and then release on Tuesday. But this is no regular year. Monday saw a handful of results, including a tri-meet hosted by Thomas More against Lindsey Wilson and Rio Grande, which was making its collegiate wrestling debut. The first time out wasn’t super great for Rio Grande, coached by former Kansas Wesleyan head coach Jason Schweer. Lindsey Wilson ran through the Redstorm (one word) 57-0. The Blue Raiders also blanked Thomas More 48-0. Things weren’t much better for Rio Grande in their second dual of the day as they fell to Thomas More 57-0. 

Midway, a second-year program in the NAIA, picked up two wins on Wednesday night. The Eagles, who are located in Midway, Kentucky, topped Truett McConnell 27-14 and the first-year program at St. Thomas, the one in Florida, 32-21 in a tri-meet held at Truett McConnell. The other match saw Truett McConnell beat St. Thomas 38-15.

Division II Fairmont State has selected Colin Johnston as its second wrestling coach. Johnston, a Pennsylvania native and alum of West Virginia University, takes over for Chris Freije, who left to become an assistant coach at Lander University in South Carolina. Johnston was previously the head coach at Division III Pitt-Bradford. 

Anthony Jones Jr. was tabbed as the new associate head coach at Division III Olivet under head coach Brandon Brissette. Jones was an assistant at his alma mater of Michigan State prior and he’s got Division III coaching experience, helping start the program at Adrian under current MSU assistant Chris Williams, who served as the head coach at Adrian.

    Cam Tessari was one of the top high school wrestlers in the country. On a team with high school superstars Logan and Hunter Stieber and Chris Phillips, the "Monroeville Four" were destined for college greatness. Phillips never wrestled in college, while the Stiebers and Tessari went to Ohio State. All were All-Americans with Logan winning four NCAA Division I wrestling championships. Tessari placed as a freshman, then his off the mat issues sent him down a destructive path. A second chance wasted, then a final one with Lindsey Wilson College. Drew Tewell wrote the screenplay of a movie about Cam's life as he rebounded to win an NAIA national championship his senior year. Drew and Cam join the Short Time Wrestling Podcast to talk about the screenplay and the true life choices and consequences.Check things out at CamTessariMovie.com 
LEADING OFF
There was a tweet from Adam Nelson, a former college basketball coach who talked about today NOT being the start of college basketball season because the NAIA and small colleges have been playing for quite a while. That’s true with wrestling and I’m going to continue to belabor the point that if you’re a wrestling fan, let’s branch out and be a wrestling fan. There’s a lot of teams that don’t get any love, but they’re out there competing. Some might even be within a reasonable drive when we get back to normal or some might have a kid who’s from your hometown. I’ve had kids from my hometown compete in D1, D2, D3 the NAIA, NJCAA through the NCWA. Following those kids helped me keep up with the York College’s of the world, the Labette’s.

That being said, onto Tuesday’s college wrestling scores, because YES, there IS college wrestling going on.
Of course, if you’ve listened to this show enough, you know that top-ranked Grand View is approaching history. Scratch that, they’ve tied history as Tuesday night, the Vikings blanked Benedictine (Kan.) 55-0 for its 92nd straight dual win, tying the all-time college record with SUNY-Delhi from 1979-1982. Grand View sets out to break the record on December 10 at Baker. 

Grand View picked up seven falls in the win, the fastest coming in 20 seconds from 125-pounder Matthew Jordan. 
Briar Cliff 44, Dakota Wesleyan 6
Chris Paulsen and Caleb “Tornado” Shanks each picked up falls for Joe Privetere’s Chargers. Yes, THAT Joe Privetere. 

Hastings 39, Midland 15
This one was nutty with all 10 bouts scoring bonus points, including six falls. Unfortunately for Midland, Hastings picked up four of those falls and a forfeit. 

Northwestern (Iowa) 30, William Penn 27
This one came down to heavyweight as Northwestern College, the one in Iowa, got a fall from Chris Van Der Brink in the first period to give the Red Raiders, from Orange City, the Great Plains Athletic Conference victory over the Statesmen. All that news and more …

ROCKING WRESTLING FACT DROP - WIN AND GET OUTWhile it’s not the only time it’s happened, it was surely the first. Garden City Community College tied with Lassen for the team championship at the 1995 NJCAA national championships. The program was cut soon thereafter. Of course, the only other instance with this happening in all of college wrestling came when Trev Alberts, AD at Nebraska-Omaha, told his wrestling program there were being dropped the night they won a third straight NCAA Division II championship.

Warner, an Illinois native, started up the podcast a couple years ago and has been prolific with his interviews and his conversational style of podcast. Digging into greats, documentary series on his own and with the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, Wrestling Changed My Life has been a fan favorite and it’s only getting better.

LEADING OFF
There is wrestling. This is more than likely a test of how much of a wrestling fan you’re going to make yourself. There is limited action around the country, but the men and women in the NAIA are competing. The NAIA released its first Women’s Coaches Poll of the season on Monday and Wayland Baptist comes in No. 1, ahead of Campbellsville, Grand View, Menlo and Life. Wayland just recently lost its head coach as Aaron Meister left to go back to his native Kansas to start the men’s and women’s program at Friends University in Wichita. 

Speaking of Life, coach Ashley Sword’s team was in action over the weekend and topped Indiana Tech and the University of the Cumberlands. Indiana Tech was wrestling its first ever women’s dual matches in school history. Life won 39-5 while the University of the Cumberlands edged Indiana tech 25-23. 

Life beat Brewton-Parker 42-4 on Monday night as well. 
On the men’s side of things, third-ranked Reinhardt opened up 2-0 after a trip to Florida, beating Keiser 55-0 and fifth-ranked Southeastern 24-19. Southeastern beat Keiser 49-6.

Coleman Bryant of Southeastern knocked off Cole Tenety 3-1 in sudden victory at 174 pounds in a matchup of returning All-Americans. Former Indiana Hooser Blake Rypel has resurfaced on the college mats, he’s at Southeastern. He won his debut by fall at 184 for the Fire. Reinhardt did pick up powerful bonus victories from returning All-Americans Trent Leon, Nolan Saxton and Antonio Stewart to power coach Jeff Bedard’s Eagles.

In other action on Monday, Brewton-Parker College beat Central Baptist (Ark.) 53-3, while St. Andrews beat the Central Baptist 42-15. No official score from St. Andrews and Brewton-Parker, but I’m told it was 43-9 in favor of Brewton-Parker. Not the first time I’ve had to chase down the opposing team looking for a score from a wrestling event held at BPC, but I digress. 
Here’s what went down since the last time I gave a scoreboard update:
Jamestown (N.D.) beat Northwestern (Iowa) 24-22. 
Arizona Christian beat Hastings 28-15
No. 7 Indiana Tech beat Thomas More 26-21
No. 4 Lindsey Wilson got a pair of big W’s, shutting out Missouri Baptist 55-0 and beating Williams Baptist 46-3. Williams Baptist beat Missouri Baptist 42-12 in the other dual there.

Earlier in the week, Benedictine (Kan.) beat Central Methodist 27-18, while Ottawa (Kan.) beat Oklahoma Wesleyan 43-12. New coaching alert in Division II where Ohio State alum Colt Sponseller is now the new head coach at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio. Josh Hutchens stepped down back in September. … while NCAA qualifier Michael Blockhus will land at Minnesota after announcing he was leaving Northern Iowa a few days ago.

Hager and Bryant talk about the genesis of the show idea, turn things around to talk about the importance of podcasting on the wrestling medium, as well as thing we all do to help one another promote the sport and developing the brands and content behind it. LEADING OFF Life University, ranked second in the NAIA to open the season welcomed first-year Montreat to the world of wrestling with a 49-(-1) dual win on Wednesday night. Yes, in case you haven’t been listening to the intro, we DO have college wrestling going on in places. Briar Cliff beat Northwestern - the one in Iowa 34-7. This is the time of year where I tell you that Northwestern College is in Orange City, Iowa but for some reason, they’re the Red Raiders. The Chargers of Briar Cliff won eight out of 10, highlighted by a first-period fall from Matthew Wilke at 285   ROCKING WRESTLING FACT DROP In 1994, the NJCAA started awarding two national championships - one for scholarship-offering schools and another for non-scholarship schools. The team scores would be counted in the same division, but only divisions broken out based on the existing competition. In the first year, Harper College won the non-scholarship division, but actually scored more points than the scholarship division champion, Garden City. Harper outscored Garden City 115-108.75. It’s not the only time it’s happened. Again, Harper outscored Iowa Central in 2010, 137-116.

He’s been a key person behind the bid process for the NCAA championships for Las Vegas in all sports. He was also instrumental in the 2008 Olympic Trials and 2015 World Championships coming to Las Vegas. As a wrestler, Christenson won the 1976 NCAA Division I championship at 167 pounds as an unseeded senior for the University of Wisconsin. He’s got long relationships in the sport and he’s using that to springboard a new podcast series supported by the the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and USA Wrestling called Etched in Stone, a podcast that’s aimed at telling compelling and interesting stories about the 179 Distinguished Members of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

Again, those results on Flo. WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW College wrestling is actually going on some places around the country. Adrian College hosted an invitational over the weekend, which it won. It also hosted a women’s open. Host Adrian won the men’s invitational and had three champs, while Indiana Tech had three and Thomas More two. On the women’s side, Adrian and Indiana Tech had four champs each with UW-Stevens Point also picking up one gold. The Citadel became the first Division I school to take to the mats this season, beating St. Thomas of Florida 54-0 in their opener. The Bobcats are a first-year NAIA program in Miami Gardens, Florida. Other scores over the weekend saw Concordia (Neb.) beat Dakota Wesleyan 34-6 and Brewton-Parker edge first-year Montreat 25-21.
