    Rumor also has it that Missouri will host the conference tournament/NCAA qualifier every year as part of the deal.

    This is great news for Mizzou. Should make for more qualifiers. at each weight class. Lock Haven, Rider and Clarion have been improving in recent years.

    Missouri has been one of the top 7 programs in college wrestling the past ten years and that is a huge achievement. I personally believe Brian Smith is one of the two or three best coaches in the country and that there are only a few things holding Mizzou back from competing for national titles year in and year out. The first thing is the lack of an RTC/ Huge donors for the program. Penn State and Ohio State are as successful as they are because of their RTC's and their ability to get donations essentially at will from an extremely affluent donor base. Mizzou has had good international success with J'den, Marable and Askren but were unable to pay those guys/ provide a good enough training environment for them to stick around. Establishing an RTC with a fulltime coach for Freestyle and Greco would go a long way. The 2nd thing is that the MAC Conference is not good right now. Losing UNI hurt it a lot and CMU is slumping hard. Mizzou just does not always get the opportunity to see the best teams. Coach Smith would love to wrestle Penn State, Iowa and Ohio State every year, but two of those three teams gain nothing by scheduling Missouri. Just more potential L's for nationals. I wish Mizzou could get affiliate membership in the Big 12 or even ACC. Putting camps in Georgia and Florida @ahmedgelsayed is an excellent idea and would help recruiting. I love the direction of the program presently and think that with guys like Punke, Smith, Johnson, Eierman, Leeth, Mauller, Jacques, Flynn, Marriott, Wisman, Koelling and Elam the future is in good hands. O'Toole is a huge signing and hopefully Mizzou can start to land more top ten p4p type talent. Smith will turn them into champions.

    Expanding wrestling camps to other states. How? Partnering with kids clubs and programs in states in the South, that do not have D-1 team to represent them. Wrestling in the South is seriously on the rise, states like Georgia and Alabama are starting to put out D1 talent, good talent too. Why not get ahead of the curve with that talent, and use "SEC ties"? That obviously takes money, but the really cool thing about camps are they generate money too :).

    I imagine our man Warren Haynes is referring to Zac Russell missing the first half of the season, hence the past tense.

    Surprising small number of upsets this weekend, despite all of the drama. Ian Parker of Iowa State had a great weekend knocking off 2 top 20 wrestlers. First was #16 Dom Demas of Oklahoma, then he followed that up on Sunday taking out #5 Kaid Brock of Oklahoma State. #62 Eric Barone of Illinois knocked off #7 Kaleb Young of Iowa in their dual, and #61 Evan Barczak beat #9 Justin McCoy of Virginia at the Appalachian Open. The last major upset that I'll mention is #27 Korbin Myers knocking off #10 Micky Phillippi. Phillippi is ranked as high as #2 in some other ranking services since he knocked off Fix, so this is a big upset.

    Could Staley be the darkhorse at state tournament?

    It's been requested a few times, but I finally got around to implementing it; National Tournament placements are now included on the school and wrestlers profile pages. Go to the schools or wrestlers profile page and look in the "Season Summaries" section. In the rank column, there will be a value at the end, in parenthesis, that shows their finish in the national tournament that year. For wrestlers, it goes thru R16. For schools, it goes thru ALL schools that earned at least 0.5 points, which is approximately the top 60. Here are some to look at: Penn State | https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/60/penn-state/profile Iowa | https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/34/iowa/profile Oklahoma State | https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/57/oklahoma-state/profile Ohio State | https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/55/ohio-state/profile Virginia Tech | https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/74/virginia-tech/profile

    Let me say that I am thrilled with where the program is at the moment. But just like everything else in life you always strive to be better. How can the program take the next step and be top 5 year in year out with legitimate shot at team trophy ever year? Besides the obvious "money" how are some outside of the box ways? Scheduling I think is a big one, top wrestlers always want to wrestle the best competition they can. What are other ideas?

    All really good points. The donor base is a huge issue. The university just started the campaign to grow the donor base from 7,700 to 18,039, which would honestly just take us to middle of the pack in the SEC. When i saw we were second to last in the SEC, it motivated me to donate and straight to the Tiger Wrestling Club. I agree about the MAC as well, it has taken a hit and folks who keep saying we just need to schedule out of conference tough opponents can be difficult to do so year in and year out. I for one would love to see them get affiliate membership into the ACC as I think they're starting to really get better top to bottom. Plus I live in NC and making it to away duals would be super easy and fun Mizzou is doing great right now because of what coach Smith has been able to do consistently with in-state talent. But the lack of RTC funding is going to be a problem with keeping those top tier in state kids as time goes on. I'm hopeful they can figure it out soon.

    I love Coach Clemsen's enthusiasm about the future. If you haven't given the last Trackwrestling MatChat podcast with him, he really believes and gets you to believe in the future of the program. He hints at it but obviously doesn't go into detail but 2020 recruiting class could be huge for us and he thinks if we keep recruiting the way we are, we're going to seriously contend for a title. He's got me in his camp for sure.

    It would be nice to see Brit Wilson and Daniel Lewis at 174! Lewis would be a huge favorite but the chance to see a couple Missouri kids would be great!

    Myers is listed as competing at the Roger Denker Open at CMU in Warrensburg this weekend according to Trackwrestling. Bohlken and Dias also listed . On a side note looks like Peyton Mocco has healed up as he is also listed. Regarding the Antlers that one time a few years ago is the one and only time that they have showed up unless someone else can remember different.
