Here's a summary of the day's AP news headlines for our area, mostly Kansas.

Kansas May Face $42 Million Payout in Corporate Tax Dispute

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas may have to pay $42 million to a former Pizza Hut franchise operation owner over his challenge of a tax bill. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Gene Bicknell has battled the state since Kansas said he owed $42 million based on his 2006 sale of NPC International, which has hundreds of Pizza Hut franchises. The Kansas Court of Tax Appeals determined Bicknell was a Kansas resident and owed the money. Bicknell says he was living in Florida, but paid the $42 million and appealed. The Kansas Court of Appeals said recently the tax appeals court ignored state regulations, sending the case back to the tax appeals court. A $42-million state payout could affect the state's finances because the state's taken in about $42 million less in revenue than expected.

Kansas Governor Works on Program to Provide Mentors for Poor 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Governor Sam Brownback says his administration is working on developing a new program to provide volunteer mentors to poor Kansas residents receiving social services from the state. Brownback said Thursday that the discussions he's having with Department for Children and Families officials are inspired by successes seen with programs that provide mentors for adult prison inmates and juvenile offenders. The Republican governor had a Statehouse news conference to promote the mentoring programs and urge more Kansans to volunteer. His news conference was the last of four events across the state this week with retiring Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts to promote programs aimed at helping ex-offenders succeed after they're released from custody. Brownback said he has no timetable for unveiling details of a new mentoring program for the poor.

Man in Kansas Voter Fraud Case Says Charge Surprised Him 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — One of the three people Kansas's secretary of state has accused of voter fraud says he lives part time in two states and thought he could legally cast votes in both of them. The Wichita Eagle reports 64-year-old Lincoln Wilson is charged in a felony complaint Kris Kobach filed on Friday in Sherman County on the Colorado border. Kobach says Wilson perjured himself on voting forms and voted in 2010, 2012 and 2014 without being lawfully registered. Wilson acknowledged voting in both states but says he thought he was restricted to voting in only one county in each. Kobach also filed criminal charges against a Johnson County couple who are accused of voting in both Kansas and Arkansas in 2010. All three of the defendants are Republicans.

Topeka to Pay $10K for Sewage Release 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka officials say the city will pay a $10,000 fine for the accidental release of 3 million gallons of raw sewage into the Kansas River earlier this year. The $10,000 fine is part of a consent agreement reached between the city and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. The city says the money will come from the city's wastewater fund. The agreement also requires Topeka to implement an emergency notification plan. That plan would involve warning residents of Lawrence, Olathe and other cities downstream within 24 hours of finding a hazardous sewage release. Doug Gerber, deputy city manager, says the April 17 spill was caused by an internal power failure, which has since been addressed.

New Mental Health Triage Center Planned in Kansas City 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A new assessment and triage center is expected to open in eastern Kansas City next year to alleviate a shortage of treatment spaces for those suffering from mental illness and substance abuse. Attorney General Chris Koster announced Wednesday that the center will be funded largely by proceeds from the sale of two Kansas City-area hospitals by Ascension Health in February. As part of the sale, Ascension, a non-profit organization, agreed to set aside $20 million for charity care. Koster said negotiations between several parties led to an agreement that the $20 million will be spread over 10 years to fund the center. It is expected to open July 1, with 16 beds to stabilize, assess and triage people with behavioral health problems.

Kansas State Salina Campus Plans New Drone Flight Facility

SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas State University has partnered with Westar Energy to build one of the largest enclosed flight facilities for unmanned aircraft systems in the nation. The new facility at the Kansas State Salina campus, which is changing its name to Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus, will allow students to conduct flight training and research. It will also give industries an arena for company training. Kansas State Salina was among the first universities in the nation to offer a bachelor's degree in unmanned aircraft systems and has doubled enrollment in the program every year since it began in 2011. This fall the university added a second bachelor's degree in drone design and integration. Westar is interested in using drones for infrastructure inspections.

Kansas Poised to Be a Leader in Emerging Field of Drones 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas is trying to position itself as an industry leader in the emerging field of unmanned aerial system. The state is building on the framework already in place as an aviation manufacturing cluster and in its technology-driven agricultural sector. Major Kansas universities are doing cutting-edge research on drones and training the skilled workforce needed to support it. On Thursday, industry and business leaders gathered in Wichita for a UAS summit that marked the culmination of a series of workshops this year on the use of the technology. Joel Anderson, the development director at Kansas State University's office, says the industry is going to have a huge impact in Kansas.

Officials Identify Man Killed in Newton Apartment Fire

NEWTON, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 63-year-old man who died in an apartment fire in Newton. Newton police say Bruce Rempel died Tuesday night after a fire broke out in his apartment. According to Lt. Bryan Hall, police responded to a report of smoke in the apartment and were told there was a man inside. Police say they tried to rescue Rempel, but were pushed back by heavy smoke and flame when they opened his door. When fire crews arrived they found flames coming from a sixth-floor window and evacuated residents from the top three floors of the seven-story building. Two people were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. Newton Fire Chief Mark Willis says the fire was contained to Rempel's apartment, but other apartments sustained smoke and water damage.

The Salina Journal reports that Stephanie Pankratz was convicted Monday on 80 counts in connection with the facility, including 22 counts of failure to register, 19 counts of not meeting animal care requirements and three counts of owning prohibited wild, exotic, poisonous or vicious animals.

Kansas Officials Warn Drivers to Watch for Deer

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Officials are warning drivers to watch for deer on the Kansas highways this fall. The Wichita Eagle reports the state Department of Transportation and the Kansas Highway Patrol want drivers to know that car accidents involving deer become more prevalent in the fall. The agencies said in a release that 15 percent of vehicle crashes last year were deer-related, and Sedgwick County had the most, with 422 deer-vehicle crashes in 2014. Officials say if a deer jumps in front a car, it's best to keep driving and avoid swerving, even if it means hitting the deer. KDOT also says to avoid a collision with deer in the first place, reduce speed in or around wooded areas and be watchful at dusk and dawn when deer are more active.

2 Kansas Men Die in Colorado Plane Crash

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — The two people who died onboard a small plane that crashed in a field in Weld County, Colorado have been identified as leaders of a Kansas church. The Greeley Tribune reports the pilot has been identified as 35-year-old Jared Langston of Holyrood, Kansas and the passenger as 41-year-old Benjamin Bates, of Lyons, Kansas. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene around noon Tuesday after their Beechcraft 35 Bonanza went down near Greeley. Bates served as bishop of the Great Bend Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Langston was the Elders Quorum president and Young Men president, according to church officials. A spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board says investigators are examining the wreckage. The cause of the crash remains unknown.

Survey Again Suggests Rural Economic Slowdown in 10 States 

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A third consecutive overall index drop in a monthly rural bankers survey suggests an economic slowdown is ahead for rural parts of 10 Western and Plains states. The Rural Mainstreet Index sank to 44.4 this month from 49.0 in September and 50.0 in August. The overall index is computed from various economic category scores, and survey organizers say any score below 50 suggests that factor will decline. Creighton University economist Ernie Goss oversees the survey, and he says the overall index reflects "weakness stemming from lower agriculture and energy commodity prices and from downturns in manufacturing exports." Bankers from Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming were surveyed.

Kansas Man Sentenced for 3-Year-Old Girl's Death from Abuse

He also admitted that he had previously punched and slapped her several times. As part of the plea agreement, Khamchanh was sentenced to the maximum of 13 years and nine months.

Former Inmate Sues Jackson County over Shackles During Labor 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A former Jackson County (Missouri) inmate is suing the county for shackling her while she was pregnant and being transported halfway across the state the day she gave birth. Megon Riedel claims in the federal lawsuit filed Thursday she was 39 weeks pregnant in 2012 when Jackson County Detention Center employees put her in handcuffs and shackles and drove her to a Vandalia prison about 200 miles away. A county spokesman declined comment because the lawsuit is pending. According to the lawsuit filed with the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, Riedel was bleeding and vomiting during the trip. The lawsuit says when she arrived in Vandalia, a doctor examined her and sent her to a hospital, where she delivered a son. She's seeking unspecified damages for cruel and unusual punishment.

Short Time Shots: 11-06-19   

Cache   

Getting back into the flow of college wrestling season is always one of those things where you’re all fired up and excited and doing so many things, and then by April, you’re like totally spent. Only this year, April means the Olympic Trials! Yes, it’s the first week of November, it’s already snowed twice here in Minnesota and I might already be overdoing it here with Short Time Shots. But have no fear, it’s still pushing through the adversity that is week one of the college wrestling season. It’s too early to whine, I’m Jason Bryant.   

Dual Meets:

  • With Tommy Baranowski and Kevin Claunch from Bloodround on the call, Division II Davenport went into Alma College’s gym and beat the Division III Scots 25-20. Rock On. Tommy offered his referee-endorsing apologist viewpoint, while Claunch was spending so much time looking at wrestler’s feet. Ok, he’s a shoe guy, Promo Code Blood20, right guys?
  • The Danny Irwin era at West Liberty got off to a strong start as the Division II Hilltoppers won nine of 10 bouts to defeat the NAIA Golden Bears of West Virginia Tech 48-3. Fastest fall of the night came at 285 where Chase Logan of West Liberty picked up the win in 1:41.
  • The Nick Soto era at St. Andrews wasn’t as welcoming as Division II Belmont Abbey cruised past NAIA St. Andrews 43-6 in a matchup between North Carolina schools. Quick fall for Belmont Abbey was Chandler Echols’ 41-second fall at 174 pounds.
  • In a dual that actually involved two teams from the same Division, that being Division III, Ferrum beat Greensboro 30-6. Both of Ferrum’s returning All-Americans, Levi Englman and Mario Vasquez earned victories at 133 and 141 – respectively of course. Both schools are relatively new programs.
  • A fall at heavyweight by Bridgewater State’s Ryan Higgins was doubly impactful on Wednesday. Not only did his fall tie the team score at the end of the 10 bouts, it was the tie-breaking criteria as it was the dual’s only one and it lifted Bridgewater State past New England College 20-19. I watched most of that dual.
  • Nebraska Wesleyan spoiled the debut of the new Division III program at Fontbonne, that’s in St. Louis. The Prairie Wolves won 38-13 with All-American Eron Haynes, the newly minted American Rivers Conference Wrestler of the Week, picking up a fall in 86 seconds at 133 pounds.
  • In the NAIA, Graceland fell behind the brand new program at Central Methodist 12-0 after three weights, but would win the six of the next seven weights and come away with a 27-15 win in Fayette, Missouri.
  • In the NJCAA, Niagara Community College opened up with a 28-20 win over Mercyhurst North East. Niagara won three of the last four weights to pull out the win, highlighted by Adam Mateo’s fall at 184 pounds. Northwest Tech beat Otero 42-18.

  • Iowa Conf- Excuse me, American Rivers Conference action gets underway with Buena Vista traveling East to take on the top-ranked team in Division III – the Loras Duhawks. Yes, there’s another team in Iowa starting the year ranked No. 1.

In Wisconsin, UW-Oskhosh faces UW-Whitewater.
  • Other than Nebraska, the only other Division I action is in New York as No. 7 Wisconsin takes on Buffalo. Note: This isn’t every dual on the schedule, but a good sample of the better ones or more notable things going on.

FROM THE DWN:

  • Biggest news of the day came in the brunch hours as Flowrestling and MissouriWrestle both reported three-time Missouri All-American Jaydin Eierman has entered the NCAA transfer portal. Eierman, a native of Columbia – the one in Missouri – is taking an Olympic redshirt this year. This is another major shakeup with a second big name hitting the portal in a week. While behind the Flo Pro paywall, Flo’s Mark Bader had a Skype call with Eierman, who said he’s got a top choice, but didn’t say it on the video.
  • The Daily Herald in Utah reports that 2018 Final X runner-up Jason Chamberlain is making the switch from freestyle to Greco-Roman to challenge for a spot on the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team.

Dual Meets: 

  • Most of the key action took place at the Northeast Duals, but before we get there, No. 15 Pittsburgh hosted Campbell in a dual where the Fighting Camels felt they had chance to pull the upset and potentially get ranked for the first time in school history. They’ll have to wait. The Panthers won eight of 10 bouts in a 28-6 win. There were notable individual matches, though as Pitt’s Micky Phillipi downed Noah Gonser 6-2 at 133, while freshman Cole Matthews pinned Josh Heil at 141 pounds. At 165, Pitt’s Jake Wentzel majored Quentin Perez, who was coming off a solid effort at the Southeast Open. Campbell did pick up one notable upset, as red hot Andrew Morgan beat Nino Bonaccorsi 11-8 at 184. Morgan fell behind early, but rallied with a second period reversal and set of four nearfall points to tie the match going into the third. He added an escape and another takedown to pull out the win. Demetrius Thomas of Pittsburgh topped Jere Heino 10-3 at 285. Wow, there was actually a lot more to that dual than the score indicates. 
  • Now, we get to the Northeast Duals and I’m going to start off with the highest ranked dual between any teams in the mix, and that was in Division II where No. 2 St. Cloud State spanked No. 1 Pitt-Johnstown 31-6. St. Cloud State’s Garrett Vos knocked off No. 1 Tyler Warner 11-6 at 133 pounds and fourth-ranked Devin Fitzpatrick beat No. 2 Devin Austin 3-1 in two of the Huskies’ biggest wins. UPJ did get one win of note, two-time Division II national champ Chris Eddins edged three-time All-American James Pleski 3-2 at 149 pounds. That’s likely a preview of your national finals at the weight. 
  • The only matchup with ranked teams in Division I saw No. 8 Arizona State beat No. 23 Virginia 27-12. The Sun Devils also rallied to beat Purdue 22-19 as car-rental eligible Tanner Hall earned a tech fall at heavyweight to give ASU the dual win. Virginia opened the day with a 49-0 win over LIU. No Jack Mueller today for the Cavaliers. Purdue beat Buffalo 32-8 and Utah Valley 30-12. Utah Valley beat Sacred Heart 40-3, while Sacred Heart beat LIU 26-12. Buffalo also beat LIU 37-3. This is going to be a long year for the newly minted Division I team at LIU. 
  • Elsewhere around the Journeyman mats, No. 12 TCNJ beat No. 14 Ithaca 23-9, St. Cloud State shut out Division III Johnson & Wales 43-0, UPJ beat American International 51-4, Johnson & Wales beat TCNJ 25-10, Ithaca beat fellow D3 Castleton 35-6, while TCNJ beat Castleton 30-12. St. Cloud State had a second shutout, beating American International 54-0. UPJ opened with a win over Ithaca 25-12, Johnson & Wales also beat American International 45-3 and Castleton did get one win, beating Alfred State 49-0. 
  • At North Penn High School in Pennsylvania, Drexel opened up its season 2-0 beating Division II West Liberty 32-9 and SIUE 18-15. Ebed Jarrell’s sudden victory win over Chase Deihl at 165 was a crucial win for the Dragons as was Bryan McLaughin’ major decision at 197 over Aric Bohn. SIUE edged West Liberty 17-15.
  • Out west, Cal Baptist, in its second year transitioning to Division I, shut out NAIA Life Pacific 51-0. 
  • In the land of cheese and Spotted Cow, UW-Parkside topped UW-Whitewater 32-19 to maintain possession of the Sake Bottle, a weird traveling trophy between the D2 and D3 schools. When I think Whitewater, or Kenosha, which is where Parkside is located, I think Japanese rice wine.  
  • In Division III, it’s weird to say No. 3 Wartburg, but No. 3 Wartburg won its 214th conference dual in a row, beating Nebraska Wesleyan 39-6. With seven bonus victories, the Knights dominated, but at 133, Nebraska Wesleyan All-American Eron Haynes got down early, then got up, then held on for a wild 23-17 win. In New England, it was New England College beating Plymouth State 35-13. The Pilgrims also beat New Hampshire’s club team 51-0. Southern Maine beat Bridgewater State 30-10, while Johnson & Wales, with a split squad, beat Bridgewater State 34-8 and Southern Maine 21-11. 
  • In the NAIA, Southeastern’s 52-0 win over Keiser wasn’t the most impressive thing about the dual. It was the first dual for Southeastern under new coach Brandon Jorge, it was the first dual in school history for the new program at Keiser, and it was the first varsity college dual in the state of Florida since 1986. Returning All-Americans Dylan Chatterton, Olson Delisca and Ethan Owen all had bonus victories on the day. 
  • On the women’s side, No. 4 Wayland Baptist picked off Colorado Mesa 29-18. All-Americans Nina Pham at 101 pounds, and Desiree Zavala at 136 pounds, picked up big victories in the dual. 

Tournaments: 

  • At the Bison Open in Fargo, Minnesota had five champs, while North Dakota State had four. Joe Russell once told me, the season starts when you have a hot dog at the Bison. I’d counter with a beer at The Turf - which is Turf reference No. 3 this week! At 141 pounds, Minnesota’s Mitch McKee picked up a 16-second fall in the finals. At 149, Brayton Lee of Minnesota beat teammate Jakob Bergeland 7-5, it’s notable since Bergeland beat South Dakota State’s Henry Pohlmeyer in the semifinals. 
  • Roger Williams won the Ned McGinley Invitational with 150 points and had two champs and three runners-up, while second place York (Pa.) finished with 115.5 points and two champs. Springfield was third with two champs and 104 points. 
  • Notable matches from the Mountaineer Invitational and Open, which had two brackets with those particular names - interesting. Oregon State’s Devan Turner topped App State’s Codi Russel at 133 pounds, Logan Parks of Central Michigan beat App State’s Matt Zovistoski 3-2 at 157, while Matt Stencel of CMU beat Cary Miller of App State 3-1 in sudden victory at heavyweight. 
  • Gannon won the Mount Union Invitational with 154 pounds, followed by Seton Hill at 113.5. Lake Erie was third with 100. 
  • At Oklahoma City University’s open, the story there is the first competition for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. They’ll host their first dual on November 24, but Saturday was their first official competition as a squad. At 133, Paul Bianchi, a transfer and past NCAA qualifier from North Dakota State, finished second, falling to Oklahoma State’s Reece Witcraft. The Trojans had three more placers - Jayden Carson at 125, Joe Bianchi at 141 and Jose Champagne at 157. As far as the tournament went, Oklahoma State won nine of the 10 weights. The other was a double by Oklahoma at heavyweight.  
  • On the women’s side, the Waldorf Open finished up in Forest City, Iowa. What’s also notable here is for the first time, two Iowa schools had women’s wrestling programs competing in the same event - Grand View and host Waldorf - while Augsburg, a Division III powerhouse on the men’s side, competed in its first event as a varsity women’s program. As far as the tournament goes, Jamestown crushed it, with five champions. Grand View had two, Augsburg had co-champs at 123. Waldorf also had a champ.

Notables on the Docket for November 10:

  • Northwestern is at Virginia Tech for the Mound on the Mat outdoor dual, Navy’s at Penn State, Illinois and Army West Point are at Chattanooga, Campbell’s at Ohio, Stanford opens up Ohio State’s new facility and there’s a crap ton of tournaments around the country, too many to list here, but there is the Journeymen Collegiate Classic in Troy, N.Y.

FROM THE DWN:

  • A school district in Pennsylvania is reversing its course after being challenged on a policy that prevented girls from competing in combat sports, like wrestling, against boys. Seventh-grader Katalyna Borreli loves wrestling and wanted to compete for her junior high team until she was told it was against the district’s policy. Read about how that policy got reversed via WFMZ. This has also been a prolific topic among Facebook groups.
  • Dan Lobdell, aka The Wrestling Nomad, looks at Jaydin Eierman’s impact on the Iowa lineup and the team race for the NCAA Division I Championships - in 2021. 
  • Trackwrestling’s Andy Hamilton gets a tour of the UW-La Crosse wrestling facility as coach Dave Malecek enters his 14th season at one of the top wrestling programs in the country. Also on Trackwrestling, Kyle Klingman lists the 79 Division I wrestling coaches and their alma maters. There’s some in there I bet you didn’t know.

Short Time Shots: 11-14-19   

Cache   

Someone, anyone, please tell me why Party in the U.S.A. is stuck in my head. I don’t own that song, but I believe the reason for this is the fact I live in a house with three females and one of them might actually own one of the NOW music CDs. I actually own NOW, when there wasn’t a volume. NOW, Volume 1, which is not its real name, had some rock on it. It also had some sappy late 90s R&B that I fell out of favor with once I discovered how badass Phil Anselmo and Pantera was. Walk on home, boy. This is Short Time Shots, your mostly daily look at the scores and news from the world of wrestling. I’m Jason Bryant. So far, this will be 14 straight episodes. There likely won’t be one on Friday night, since I’ll be covering the Gopher dual and putting out an episode of The Guillotine Grapevine. Maybe I’ll record it on Saturday morning for you guys as you make the last mow of the season, or in some cases, the first snow shovel of the year worth it. 

Dual Meets: 

  • Unranked Illinois, fresh off getting beat by Army West Point last weekend, rebounded with a 19-14 win over border rival and 13th ranked Missouri at Francis Howell High School in St. Louis on Thursday night. Missouri did have the services of All-American Grant Leeth at 141, but were without Dylan Wisman at 184. Illinois had key wins at 125 as Justin Cardani beat Dack Punke and then three in a row from 165-184 to take the lead heading into the dual’s final two weights. Freshman heavyweight Luke Luffman prevailed 9-7 over Rodrigo Diaz to give Illinois the upset.
  • Division II Colorado School of Mines shut down Northeastern Junior College 34-9. Also out in Colorado, Western Colorado beat Chadron State 28-13 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. 
  • Elmhurst beat the University of Chicago 33-19 as the Bluejays benefited from three Chicago forfeits. Maroons All-Americans Steve Bonsall and Ben Sarasin were both victorious. 
  • A couple of junior colleges picked up wins over Division III foes - Mercyhurst North East topped Pitt-Bradford 31-18, while Joliet Junior College beat MacMurray 36-18. Lincoln, which is in its first year as an NAIA member after transitioning from a two-year school to a four-year one, also beat MacMurray 34-18.
  • In Georgia, Brewton-Parker, with a hyphen, knocked off Truett McConnell, sans hyphen, 38-12. 
  • Nothing reported from CSU-Pueblo and Otero, Central Baptist and Oklahoma Wesleyan or the two duals out west in the California Community Colleges. 
  • Late Wednesday: Neosho County and head coach Nick Nothern knocked off rival Labette 26-16 in Chanute. That’s action in the NJCAA in case you were wondering. The Panthers swept six bouts between 149 and 197 to take the dual.

Notables on the Docket for November 15:

  • Super solid Friday night for wrestling: No. 3 Ohio State heads to Pittsburgh to take on the No. 15 Panthers, No. 4 Oklahoma State will have its first dual of the season as it heads to Philly to take on Drexel. No. 6 Minnesota hosts Rider at Williams Arena, I’ll be there for that one, as will BDI. No. 8 Arizona State opens its home slate against Division II Augustana (S.D.), No. 9 NC State hosts Old Dominion, which was ranked last week and fell out of the rankings despite not losing. Same thing happened to Wyoming. Binghamton faces South Dakota State in Sioux Falls, Bucknell heads to Northern Illinois, Division II Simon Fraser faces Oregon State in Tahoma, Washington and Rutgers heads to Fresno State where the Bulldogs are trying to break their own attendance record, looking for 10,000 fans in the SaveMart Center. 
  • Notable matches from other divisions include Ithaca traveling to Stevens Institute, Manchester at Wabash, more news on them in a second, Campbellsville and the first-year program at Arizona Christian facing Embry-Riddle - not at same time, that would be unfair and there’s a doubleheader with the men’s and women’s programs with Southern Oregon going to Portland to face Warner Pacific. Tournament-wise, the Roger Williams Invitational kicks off in Bristol, Rhode Island. 

FROM THE DWN:

  • Minnesota profiles senior Carson Brolsma with the now overused Q&A segment called Seven Minutes. The Open Mat actually started that, then Trackwrestling adopted it after TOM stopped doing it. And now we have it in Minnesota. It’s like every column in every wrestling magazine being called The Inside Trip - with apologies to Brando and B-Law with The Inside Trip podcast. End snarky note. 
  • The week will continue with posts from the early signing period. Some schools went all out on day one, while others are trickling out their early classes. While not directly linked in this section, Thursday’s releases are in the newsletter. 
  • We’ve got a new No. 1 in Division III wrestling, mainly because the rankings in the early season released by the Division III Coaches Association are on tournament points. Loras, the preseason No. 1, didn’t lose, but slid one spot to No. 2. This is why tournament rankings are absolute crap UNTIL the postseason. Next week’s rankings, as the release says, will be dual strength. I’d have just held off the team rankings this week, since there was plenty of movement in the individual rankings. Oh, that new No. 1, by the way, the Little Giants of Wabash. 
  • Missouri’s sports information office features alum and UFC fighter Tyron Woodley, while Penn State has an in-house feature on Creighton Edsell, an unlikely small town starter who came up with a win in last week’s dual against Navy. 
  • Flowrestling looks at Fresno State’s drive to break its attendance record and eclipse the 10,000-fan mark in their upcoming dual against Rutgers. 
  • The Predicament goes into the Where Are They Now with the Inside the Rivalry series. Well, where are they now and what are they all doing
  • Mason Beckman makes a guest appearance with a preview of the Bill Farrell Memorial on the Home Mat Advantage at 74kg. 
  • TheMat.com gives us the full U.S.-centric Bill Farrell preview as well. 
  • Flowrestling borrows Tim Hands of Five Point Move for their extensive Greco-Roman preview, not paywalled. 
  • Patch.com, a collection of like 1,200 hyperlocal news websites, features Penn State wrestling alum Rohan Murphy and his message to inmates at Suffolk County Correctional Facility. Rohan is an amazing dude. Born with no legs, he’s got a great message to share about perseverance. 
  • The Southern Illinoisan, yes, that is the actual name of the newspaper, featured Carbondale Community High School coach Dennis Ragan and his recent induction into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame via the Illinois chapter. If that name and location lead you to connect some dots - la la la la - then you’re right. It’s Alli’s dad. 
  • And the biggest Bud heavy advocate in wrestling, Willie Saylor, drops an interview on his MatScouts Rokfin channel that Blair Academy’s Travis Mastrogiovanni, the No. 4 recruit in the Class of 2021 is heading to Oklahoma State, where his brother Trevor has also committed.

Short Time Shots: Rider's John Hangey (11-15-19)   

Cache   

Sometimes you have to pivot. I had every intention of putting together another episode of The Guillotine Grapevine here on the Mat Talk Podcast Network, but sometimes things don’t go as planned, as you’re about to find out. This is Short Time Shots, a mostly daily look at the scores and more from the world of wrestling, I’m Jason Bryant. 

Dual Meets: 

  • The biggest upset of the night and one of the bigger upsets in the past several years saw unranked Rider come into Williams Arena in Minneapolis and knock off No. 6 Minnesota 21-17. The key wins came from Jonathan Tropea at 125 pounds and Dean Sherry at 174 pounds. Sherry pinned All-American Devin Skatzka in one of the most exciting three minutes of wrestling. Instead of talking you through it, I talked with Rider coach John Hangey about the match and its impact on the Rider program. Rider’s Ryan Cloud won an absolutely not thrilling bout 1-0 at 285 over Bobby Steveson to lock up the win for the Broncs. (Hangey Interview)
  • In other Top 25 action, No. 3 Ohio State won six out of 10 at No. 15 Pittsburgh, but it was bonus points that blew the match open for coach Tom Ryan’s Buckeyes. Ohio State prevailed 23-12. Kollin Moore opened the dual with a major at 197, Chase Singletary scored a mild upset over Demetrius Thomas at heavyweight, Luke Pletcher, no, that’s not a typo, got a major at 141 pounds over Cole Matthews, while Sammy Sasso picked up a fall at 149 pounds. The Buckeyes return home to face No. 11 Virginia Tech on Sunday. 
  • In Philadelphia, No. 4 Oklahoma State won eight out of 10 bouts to open its dual season with a 30-6 win over Drexel. Cowboy 165-pounder Travis Wittlake knocked off Ebed Jarrell 5-1. John Smith also tied Bobby Douglas for fifth on the all-time collegiate dual wins list with his 427th victory. 
  • No. 8 Arizona State won its home opener 35-6 over Division II Augustana (S.D.). We’ll save the story of that dual for what’s in the Daily Wrestling Newsletter. 
  • No. 9 NC State always seems to get a fight from ODU and Friday was no different. The Wolfpack would prevail 22-11 after getting a huge fall at 197 pounds from Tyrie Houghton to go along with ranked wins by top-ranked Hayden Hidlay at 157 over Larry Early and Tariq Wilson’s 3-2 win over Sa’Derian Perry at 141. 
  • Elsewhere in Division I, Northern Illinois beat Bucknell 24-10, Binghamton beat South Dakota State 25-16, Oregon State beat Division II Simon Fraser 40-8 in Tahoma, Washington. I deliberately didn’t post this until Fresno State and Rutgers were finished. Rutgers won 23-13. Did Fresno State set their school’s attendance record? No, but they still drew a solid 3,500-plus.
  • Division II Coker beat NAIA St. Andrews 45-8.
  • In Division III No. 1 Wabash shut out Manchester 45-0, No. 15 Ithaca topped Stevens Institute 29-12, Williams beat Trinity 28-18, Lycoming beat Thiel 40-6 and smashed NJCAA Jamestown (N.Y.) 51-3. Thiel beat Jamestown 44-6.
  • In the NAIA, Concordia (Neb.) beat Northwestern (Iowa) 29-10 and Southern Oregon beat Warner Pacific 36-16. Campbellsville swept a quad at Embry-Riddle. The Tigers beat Arizona Christian 32-6, host Embry-Riddle 33-9 and Vanguard 43-3. So two wins over first-year teams. Play nice Franky James! 
  • In junior college action, Minnesota West beat Northland Tech 36-21. 
  • Late Thursday: Fresno City beat Bakersfield 42-6, while Modesto beat Skyline and West Hills. Central Baptist beat Oklahoma Wesleyan 24-22. 

Tournaments

  • In Bristol, Rhode Island, Johnson & Wales is out to an early Day 1 lead at the Roger Williams Invitational. Following the Wildcats are Castleton, TCNJ, NYU and host Roger Williams

International Wrestling

  • Day 1 of the Bill Farrell came and went as the most important aspect was athletes qualifying for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in April in State College. In Greco, five Americans won titles - Ryan Mango at 60kg, Alex Sancho at 67kg, Alan Vera at 87kg, G’Angelo Hancock at 97kg and Adam Coon at 130kg. Also qualifying was Sammy Jones at 60kg and Spencer Woods at 77kg.
  • In women’s freestyle competition at the Bill Farrell, Victoria Anthony beat Erin Golston to win gold at 50kg. Golston qualified for the Trials by being the highest placing American who wasn’t already qualified. Areana Villaescusa and Alex Glaude also qualified. Of note at 76kg, Erica Wiebe of Canada, the 2016 Olympic champion, beat 2014 world silver medalist Aline da Silva of Brazil 4-0 for gold. 
  • Women’s World Cup in Narita, Japan kicked off. The U.S. was wrestling Russia at the time this show was being recorded. Check UnitedWorldWrestling.org or TheMat.com for full results and @wrestling or @usawrestling on Twitter for live results.

Notables on the Docket for November 16:

  • There’s like nearly 100 duals or something tomorrow. I can’t possibly list them all. The biggest is No. 4 Oklahoma State at No. 10 Lehigh. 

FROM THE DWN:

  • Travis Johnson of Trackwrestling gets a look at Stanford looking to take its next step after its first Pac-12 title, a quick glimpse at Oklahoma State-Lehigh, a look at Northern Iowa’s Bryce Steiert, now up at 174 and a note about Josh Shields from Arizona State. 
  • InterMat’s Tim “T.R.” Foley starts out remembering Paul Wellstone before answering reader questions in his weekly Foley’s Friday Mailbag feature. 
  • Greg Moore of the Arizona Republic features Roman Rozell, a 34-year-old Army combat veteran who will be believed to be the oldest starter in Division I wrestling when he takes to the mat against Division II Augustana (S.D.). This story will be dated by the time you hear this, but it’s still worth the read. Rozell wrestled at 197 on Friday night, getting pinned in ASU’s only loss of the evening. But still. 
  • We’ve got an abundance of international stars competing at the Bill Farrell, so here’s a few to keep an eye on, courtesy of TheMat.com. 
  • Speaking of TheMat.com, Taylor Miller of USA Wrestling writes a pretty solid feature on Anthony Echemendia. Did you know he turned 19 in a detention center while trying to get to the United States? Good job T-Millz on that piece. 
  • The RUDIS Podcast, The Way, with Cary Kolat and Matt Dernlan go into college officiating. This … should be interesting. 
  • The Mid-American Conference released its November coaches rankings at GetSomeMaction.com. Missouri still No. 1, followed by Old Dominion, Lock Haven, Rider and Clarion. 
  • Cronkite News, a program produced by students at the amazing journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State, features Marlee Smith, the only woman on the wrestling team at Arizona State. Zeke Jones has women and combat vets on the roster. That’s dynamic.

Short Time Shots - January 5, 2018   

Cache   

So it’s been a few weeks since we downed a few shots, and no, I’m not talking about your double imperial homebrewed egg nog. I love craft beer, especially the stuff made up here by Minnesota’s finest, but come on -- no one needs a Russian Imperial triple-hopped barrel aged collaborative fest bier, unless that beer is FREE! I’m Jason Bryant, and this is Short Time Shots, a look back at the days happenings in college wrestling.

To me, the most important thing going on was the NWCA Multi-Divisional National Duals. The event featured 86 teams from five college divisions, over 50 ranked teams and an astounding 345 nationally ranked wrestlers. Basically, there’s currently 76 teams in Division I wrestling -- there were more teams in this event than there were in the nation’s most popular division.

Why? Because these ranked Division I duals won’t take that long to power through. By the way, Happy New Year.

No. 2 Ohio State squashed Maryland 44-3, but that’s not surprising. Nathan Tomasello made his much-anticipated season debut at 125 pounds and he didn’t spend that much time on the mat, registering a technical fall against Maryland’s Brandon Cray.

Third-ranked Oklahoma State scored bonus victories from heavyweight Derek White and 133-pounder Kaid Brock to get past fifth-ranked NC State 19-16 in the Tussle for the Troops, the first ever NCAA college dual meet to take place outside of North America. Why do I have to specify North America? Simon Fraser is an NCAA Division II school and they’re in Canada, so it wouldn’t be the first NCAA dual outside of the U.S. and it wouldn’t be the first Division I dual either, considering D1 teams have wrestled at Simon Fraser in the past.

Oh, yeah -- Kevin Jack beat Dean Heil with a late takedown in the third period. After winning over 50 in a row, Mean Dean has lost two straight. 141 is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Shout out to you Hanna Grisewood.

Seventh-ranked Iowa laid the wood to Michigan State, picking up six falls and coming away with a 49-6 victory. STOP BURYING THE LEDE! Spencer Lee made his Carver-Hawkeye debut and promptly decked another talented freshman, RayVon Foley in 46 seconds. Not to be confused with the 46 MINUTES I had to wait today for my Freaky NOT FAST Jimmy Johns lunch delivery. Anyway -- anyone remember that story about the Iowa college student that tried to bribe a police officer to get out of a ticket with some Jimmy John’s? I’d have taken it.

Michigan shut out Indiana 43-0. Things went about how you might expect there. South Dakota State, which sits at No. 15, the highest ranking in school history, beat Oregon State 30-15. Seth Gross, ANOTHER fall at 133 pounds. Seriously, if it weren’t for guys named Nolf and Retherford, Gross would be getting a lot more chatter.

General funkiness down in Chapel Hill as Wyoming went 4-0, beating No. 19 North Carolina, American, Duke and Army West Point. North Carolina has proven to be a nightmare when coordinating the Division I coaches poll. This is the same team that started the year ranked, lost 31-6 to Purdue, beat No. 8 Minnesota and then loses to Wyoming -- the same Wyoming team that split with Oklahoma State. Sure, no AC Headlee or Ethan Ramos for UNC. Dalton Macri had a really tough day up at 141 pounds for the Heels.

Now, time to roll! National Duals Time. Oh wait, one more thing.

I was going to mention this on Thursday night, but quite frankly, it was late and I had to take my inlaws to the airport at O’Dark Thirty.

Fresno State picked up its first win against a Division I opponent since reinstatement with a 29-13 victory over Cal Poly. Josh Hokit, welcome to the party. Right off the football field and in there with a fall. Attaboy coach Steiner.

While Thursday’s competition at the NWCA Multi-Divisional National Duals was fueled by upsets, traditional powers settled in on Friday where three championship streaks continued as the finals wrapped up at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Grand View collected its seventh straight NAIA National Duals championship, Clackamas won its fifth in a row in the NJCAA division, while St. Cloud State won its second straight title in Division II. Augsburg beat rival Wartburg to end the Knights’ seven-year win streak in Division III, while Campbellsville won its first title in the WCWA division.

Hosted by the NUWAY, the NWCA Multi-Divisional National Duals is presented by Applied Silver, InBody, Therawox and the United States Marine.

WCWA
The Lady Tigers of Campbellsville are the new queens of the National Duals. A down-to-the-wire finish gave coach Lee Miracle’s team the school’s first National Duals championship in any division with a 24-19 win over second-seeded McKendree.

It was truly a tale of two halves as McKendree jumped out to a 17-4 lead after winning the first five matches. The WCWA competes using international freestyle rules, allowing teams to score team points in a loss. Some lineup shifts by Campbellsville saw several wrestlers bump up two weights to maximize matchups including Grace Bullen, who went up to 143 from 130, and three-time WCWA champion Kayla Miracle, who went up to 155 from 136. Koral Sugiyama started Campbellsville’s roll of five straight wins with a fall over Brenda Reyna at 2:35 at 136.

Bullen and Miracle followed with fa fall and a technical fall. Bullen pinned McKendree’s Alexis Porter in a matchup of past Junior world bronze medalists. Miracle’s tech gave Campbellsville its first lead at 18-17 with two weights left.

Campbellsville’s Mariah Harris scored a 9-9 criteria over All-American Brandy Lowe at 170, putting the pressure on 191-pounders Kaitlyn Hill of Campbellsville and Destane Garrick of McKendree. Needed a shutout, a technical fall or a fall to win the dual for her team Garrick controlled the action early, but Hill hit a pair of four-point moves to pull out a 13-13 criteria victory and seal the win for Campbellsville.

Division II
St. Cloud State abruptly ended Seton Hill’s Cinderella run through the Division II bracket, smoking the Griffins 41-0 in the Division II final. The victory gave coach Steve Costanzo and the Huskies its 19th dual meet victory in a row and the program’s fourth Division II National Duals title. They also won titles in 2012 and 2013.

St. Cloud State was the only seeded team to place in the top four -- they finished the event 34-6 individually.

Division III
Wartburg’s seven-year run atop the National Duals in Division III came to an end at the hands of longtime rival Augsburg. The Auggies split 10 matches with the Knights, but falls by David Flynn at 141 pounds and Lucas Jeske at 165 pounds were vital in the 21-17 victory.

It was the 11th time the two teams have met in the Division III National Duals finals and the win on Friday gave Augsburg a 6-5 lead in the overall series when the teams meet in the championship final. Wartburg has 11 titles in the event, compared to the six won by Augsburg. Wartburg has reached the title match in all 17 years of the Multi-Divisional format.

Augsburg opened winning the first three bouts, highlighted by Flynn’s fall over Martine Sandoval. Wartburg would chip away at the lead after wins by All-Americans Cross Cannone and Logan Thomsen before top-ranked Jeske picked up a fall late in the second period to put Augsburg handily in the lead. Stephen Larson’s 6-4 win at 184 pounds clinched the win for coach Jim Moulsoff’s Auggies, who had to get past a scrappy Johnson & Wales team just to make the final.

Augsburg and Wartburg will reacquaint themselves in the annual Battle of the Burgs dual on February 1 in Waverly, Iowa. I will drive there. It will happen.

NAIA
Grand View won its seventh straight NAIA National Duals title on Friday, defeating sixth-seeded Williams Baptist 33-9. The seventh title in a row ties Wartburg’s all-division record that ended on Friday.

Williams Baptist briefly held a 6-3 lead after Nick Souder’s pin over Omeed Chamanzad at 133 pounds, but Grand View would win seven of the next eight bouts, including national champion Josh Wenger’s 7-2 win over All-American Tyler Fraley at 149 pounds. Fellow national champions Grant Henderson (165) and Evan Hansen (197) scored bonus victories before Dean Broghammer avenged last year’s NAIA semifinal loss to Williams Baptist’s Demetrius Thomas with a 3-2 decision at 285 pounds, sparked by Broghammer’s takedown late in the second period.

Grand View’s dual meet streak has been impressive. The Vikings have won 60 straight duals and 89 of 90 duals overall since the start of the 2011-12 season. The lone blemish was a loss on November 7, 2013 at Division I Iowa State. Now in the program’s 10th season, Grand View has lost just nine duals in school history.

NJCAA
Clackamas stopped Northeastern Oklahoma A&M 27-14 to earn the Cougars’ fifth straight NJCAA championship. It’s the third straight year Clackamas has defeated NEO in the junior college final.

The key for Josh Rhoden’s squad came with four straight wins between 149 and 174 pounds.
At 165, Clackamas’ Dayton Racer beat NEO’s Wyatt Jordan 10-4 in a matchup of returning national champions. Racer, last year’s champ at 157, trailed early and with the score tied at four with just over 30 seconds left, Racer scored a takedown and four nearfall points to pick up the victory.

Clackamas’ top-ranked Dylan Reel needed overtime to get past Devin Crawl at 174 pounds, while Gage Harrah is sure to break into the NJCAA rankings after his 48-second fall over Gus Boyd at 197 pounds.

The title is Clackamas’ sixth overall. The Cougars previous won the NJCAA National Duals title in 2011.

Short Time Shots - January 18, 2018   

Cache   

There’s been a lot of talk about shifting weights this week and of course, on Thursday night, the action in Brookings, South Dakota did not disappoint as No. 15 South Dakota State beat No. 22 Wyoming 20-18 in Big 12 action.

Wait, the dual meet? What are you talking about? We’ll talk about all that and more on Short Time Shots, a look back at the day’s wrestling scores and more, I’m Hall of Fame broadcaster, announcer and writer Jason Bryant. Caution - NAME DROPPING AHEAD.

So by now most of you know Wyoming’s Bryce Meredith, the top-ranked 141-pounder by Flowrestling met up with South Dakota State’s Seth Gross, the top-ranked 133-pounder by everyone. What started as some Twitter talk quickly escalated into a match that caused wrestling historians, including myself, to pore through old results to find out the last time this happened.

So before we get into the history, Meredith, an NCAA runner-up two seasons ago, topped Gross, an NCAA runner-up last season 4-2, scoring midway through the third period to break a 1-1 tie. He tacked on a riding time point to make it 4-2, but when you look at what this was, it was much more than a 4-2 win.

Giving promotional credit where credit is due -- Flowrestling, which has the rights to stream all of South Dakota State’s home duals -- jumped all over this and rightly so. On Flowrestling Radio Live on Thursday morning, they brought on Jackrabbits coach Chris Bono to explain the situation and why he bought in. Bono, who also had the buy in from Wyoming coach Mark Branch, and Flo, played this one perfectly. It’s like catching lightning in a bottle -- build up, the right amount of hype and a great match to finish. We need more opportunities to showcase the individual matchups we have in dual meets like this. The only thing lost at the end of the dual was who won, considering Wyoming still had a chance to win the match in the last weight.

So, December 18, 1998 - Eric Guerrero handed Stephen Abas a 5-3 loss. What exactly was the situation there? Let me run to the stacks and tell you, from the pages of Amateur Wrestling News.

Abas was ranked 2nd in the country behind Oklahoma State Cowboy Teague Moore. So what we could have had was No. 1 vs. No. 2 at 125, but instead, we had No. 1 at 133 vs. No. 2 at 125. But would we? NO! You see, Teague wasn’t in the lineup that weekend for Oklahoma State and it would be future All-American Jeff Ragan getting the call. So does Stephen Abas go to work on a then-unheralded underclassmen or does he bump up and face another Californian. It went 5-3 in Guerrero’s favor.

Shifting our attention to Division II No. 10 Upper Iowa improved to 6-3 with a 30-7 win over MSU Moorhead, that in the Northern Sun Conference. At 174, Jordan Gundrum picked off eighth-ranked Adam Blees to highlight the Peacocks victory.

Wins by Isaac Lopez, Richard Bencomo and Tuli Laulu sealed the victory for coach Jason Ramstetter’s Adams State Grizzlies as they beat New Mexico Highlands 25-16.

Closer to home, Augustana -- University -- the one in South Dakota -- picked up a 27-9 Northern Sun victory over Southwest Minnesota State. Record another fall for Aero Amo at 184 pounds from Augustana. This guy has been around forever it seems.

Fresh off a championship at the Virginia Duals, King University returned to its winning ways with a 26-21 win over Coker in ECAC South action. It was a 5-5 split, and even without nationally ranked 133-pounder Dustin Kirk, the Tornado were just fine. Geography note, as offered by Julia Salata. If you’re catching a trucker out of Philly, he probably had a nice long toke, because you don’t head west through the Cumberland Gap to get to Johnson City, Tennessee. Don’t believe me? Google Map it.

Speaking of Moorhead, we’ll go to Division III, where top-ranked Augsburg headed West on I-94 and stopped just short of the North Dakota line, but they didn’t stop short of a win. The Auggies didn’t Fear the Ear, instead, they’d win the four of the first five matches via bonus and beat Concordia -- the one in Moorhead -- 36-6. On the mic out in Moorhead, PA announcer Brian Doucette.

No. 8 UW-Whitewater beat No. 12 UW-La Crosse 19-15. The big Warhawk win came at 125 pounds where Mike Tortorice knocked off super freshman Zach Villareal 8-0. At 197, returning national champion Jordan Newman iced the victory with a 7-4 win over Wesley Schultz.

Wabash jumped out to a big lead and cruised past Millikin 25-15. The Little Giants -- yes, we haven’t had too many Little Giants references this year -- had five of their six wins via bonus, including a fall at 157 from Kyle Hatch. Millikin also shut out MacMurray 48-0.

UW-Oshkosh topped MSOE -- that’s the Milwaukee School of Engineering 36-10. In addition to name-dropping the Concordia announcer, I’ll do the same for the Titans former announcer Casey Nelson, who like me, was an applicant for the Timberwolves gig a few months ago.

Up in the mitten (that’s Michigan in case you’re wondering), Olivet picked up five bonus victories including technical falls from Tyler Grimsley at 165 and Ryan Clark at 184 to beat Adrian 27-19. Big news also came out of Michigan this week as the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association announced it would be sponsoring men’s wrestling as a conference sport starting next year. That will put Olivet, Adrian, Alma and Trine -- which isn’t in Michigan, but it’s in the conference -- as the four schools with teams. The positive there? Well, since a conference sponsors the sport, the opportunity to add new programs within is greater, so let’s keep an eye out to see if Albion, Calvin, Hope, Kalamazoo and St. Mary’s are looking to start teams in the future.

Short Time Shots - January 21, 2018   

Cache   

There was one thing my wife asked me NOT to do on this episode of Short Time Shots -- and that's talk about the Minnesota Vikings. It's pretty hard when the three most important women in our life, my wife and my two young daughters Lucy and Ruby are decked out in purple and you see what happens when your five-year-old realizes what losing is, as she's wrapped up in a Vikings blanket my mom made her.

Sadly, the Vikings faithful are used to heartbreak. This is one reason I'm trying to at least salvage Ruby, the youngest to be a Bucs fan. You see, I grew up a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan. I still am a diehard, although most years since 2002, I can check out around week 10, knowing the playoffs are a pipe dream. When you're a Bucs fan, there are no expectations. The Super Bowl in 2002 is an outlier, a one-off. I can die a happy man knowing what was once the worst franchise in pro sports actually has a championship.

Eat that, Browns fans.

This isn't a show about football, It's Short Time Shots, a look back at the day's notable college wrestling scores and more. I'm your host Hall of Fame wrestling writer, broadcaster and announcer Jason Bryant and we've got some things to talk about today.

Did you know there were 63 dual meets on Sunday? 63? Yeah. All of their results available at mattalkonline.com's college wrestling scoreboard. It's the link at the top right of the page that says "SCOREBOARD!" Or just go to almanac.mattalkonline.com to check it out. The most comprehensive scoreboard in the nation is hosted here.

First off, the biggest dual of the day took place in Columbus, Ohio where second-ranked Ohio State topped fourth-ranked Iowa 22-12 in front of 15,117 fans at Value City Arena. The crowd rates 14th all-time in Division I dual meet attendance and it was the final "home" dual for Nathan Tomasello, Bo Jordan and Kyle Snyder. Two of the three didn't disappoint, that is if you're a Buckeye fan.

Iowa true freshman Spencer Lee's proficient top work was enough to get him past Tomasello 3-2 at 125 pounds. Lee's two escapes and a riding time point were enough to overcome Tomasello's third-period takedown. Brandon Sorensen beat Ke-Shawn Hayes at 149, Iowa's Michael Kemerer beat Micah Jordan at 157, Alex Marinelli returned home to Ohio to beat TeShan Campbell at 165, but then it was all Buckeyes. Bo Jordan, Myles Martin, Kollin Moore and Kyle Snyder swept the last four weights to keep Ohio State unbeaten. Questions circling about why Iowa, which needed a fall to win the dual, didn't sent out Sam Stoll at 285 and sent Steven Holloway out instead to take on the World and Olympic Champion. You guys can discuss that all you want. If you're a Hawkeye fan, you think one way. Most everyone else thinks another. It is what it is. I wanted to see where Sam Stoll was at. I guess we'll have to wait until the grind of the Big Ten tournament to find out.

In ranking order, top-ranked Penn State had little trouble staying unbeaten with a 47-3 plundering of Maryland. The Nittany Lions scored six falls, including five in a row -- take a guess where -- to improve to 9-0 on the year. Best match of the dual was at heavy where Nick Nevills beat Youssif Hemida 4-1 in an upset on paper, depending on which rankings you prefer.

Fifth-ranked Oklahoma State smashed Kent State 42-3, while seventh-ranked Lehigh got back on track with a 30-6 win over Army West Point. By the way, Army and Navy both wrestled on Sunday, while the government shutdown impacted the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and the Air Force Academy. So I asked Navy assistant Nate Engel why the Midshipmen and Black Knights wrestled today and he was explaining that the athletic departments are non-profits and aren't technically owned by the government. Air Force set their department up this way recently, but apparently don't have enough in their coffers to YET operate the way the other two major service academies do. Now, I don't have 100 percent confirmation on this -- but apparently neither does the House or the Senate. Too soon?

I was at the Maturi Pavilion on Sunday afternoon watching No. 8 Michigan beat the everloving crap out of Minnesota. Let's make this clear, the Gophers are NOT a bad team. Michigan just beat them everywhere. The Gophers' lone bright spot was Nick Wanzek, who beat Logan Massa 14-8 at 165 pounds. Other than that, the Wolverines just out-hustled and out-wrestled the Gophers to the tune of a 30-7 win. Stevan Micic packed Mitch McKee with a cradle at 133 pounds.

Virginia Tech went up to Pitt and beat the Panthers 31-10. Good win by B.C. "The Headache Powder" LaPrade at 157 pounds, he beat Taleb Rahmani. Yes, B.C. gets a bit of a push here on the show because the kid is from my home district.

South Dakota State's Connor Brown picked up a gigantic fall to start off the dual against Northern Iowa and the 15th-ranked Jackrabbits are sure to move up in the rankings after a 22-16 win over No. 11 Northern Iowa in front of over 1,200 fans in Frost Arena on Sunday. In case you're wondering, South Dakota State's highest Division I ranking all-time is 15, which is where they stand as of now.

Nebraska rallied past Rutgers 19-13 in Lincoln, while Rider stopped Edinboro's 24-match EWL winning streak with a 21-15 win over the Fighting Scots.

Elsewhere, Appalachian State improved to 3-0 in the SoCon with a 30-9 win over SIU Edwardsville, Oklahoma beat Northern Colorado 28-10 in front of nearly 5,000 fans at a Beauty and the Beast tandem match with gymnastics, Iowa State beat West Virginia 25-17. Sam Colbray FINALLY won a big match, beating Jake Smith at 197 pounds. Colbray has struggled mightily this season. Tip of the cap to Bloomsburg, which beat VMI and Sacred Heart at home on Sunday. Duke's Jacob Kasper picked up a fall at 285 pounds to give Duke a 23-22 win over Navy in Durham. Kasper's fall tied the score, but Duke won the dual on the second criteria, most number of six point victories -- and Kasper's fall was the difference maker at the end.

Campbell beat Gardner-Webb 31-7, Chattanooga topped The Citadel 38-7, Clarion blanked George Mason 48-0 and Old Dominion beat American 27-10.

Outside of Division I, Central Oklahoma beat Lindenwood 32-13, while Johnson & Wales went 4-0 to win the New England Duals. The Wildcats beat intra-state rival Roger Williams 20-15.

Top-ranked Augsburg beat UW-Eau Claire 34-3 in Minneapolis, so at least one team in the Twin Cities got a win on Sunday.

Ouch. Too soon?

Short Time Shots - January 25, 2018   

Cache   

So I'm a craft beer guy. I wasn't always a craft beer guy. It took me to move to Pennsylvania at age 25 to realize that there were good beers out there that weren't named Natural, Beast or Bud. But I also have a very diverse palate when it comes to the types of beers I drink. In my older age, I've learned to drink for flavor not to drink to figure out how many beers we can get for $20 at the local Farm Fresh or Food Lion -- yes, in Virginia, you could buy cheap swill at the grocery store.

Thankfully by the time I was actually 21, Yuengling Lager had made its way down to Virginia. You know what the difference between a pint of Lager in Pennsylvania and a pint of Lager in Virginia is? About four bucks.

Anyway, you're not here to hear me talk about my beer fridge - or maybe you are - but this is Short Time Shots, a look back at the day's scores and more in the world of college wrestling from January 25, 2018, I'm your media guide slinging, craft beer enjoying Hall of Fame wrestling announcer, writer and broadcaster Jason Bryant.

But before I get to the scores, I want to call out my buddies over at the Bloodround Podcast, which is pretty much the antithesis of anything you'll find on the Mat Talk Podcast Network. They're close to Bell's Brewing out there in Michigan. I picked up a six pack today of a limited seasonal they put out called Hopslam. I'm not by any means an IPA guy. I typically don't like drinking a pine cone. But I also like rarities, so I'll give it a shot.

The promotional video says … you know what. I'm just going to let you hear it in their own words …

I'm very afraid.

Now, FINALLY to wrestling, there were two Division I duals and both were in the Southern Conference. Appalachian State remained unbeaten in the SoCon with an 18-12 win over Campbell in a match that was rescheduled from some snow that hit the Southeast a week or so ago. Key victories there for the Mountaineers were by 174-pounder Forrest Przybysz who beat Andrew Morgan 13-11 and Codi Russell, who beat Nathan Boston in sudden victory at 133 pounds. Gavin Londoff's win at 149 over Zach Barnes was the match-clincher for JohnMark Bentley's squad.

VMI, which has been struggling quite a bit in recent memory, picked up its first win over The Citadel in 11 years. The Keydets picked up falls from Blake Hohman and Gage Levine to help push past the Bulldogs 24-21 in a battle of bonus points. Hohman and 133-pound winner Hunter Starner are from my home district, so shout out to Mike Faus' New Kent Trojans and Doug Roper's Tabb Tigers -- they helped a D1 team get a W tonight.

In Division II, St. Cloud State improved to 15-0 and extended its win streak to 24 in a row with a 42-3 win over Northern State. The jaw-dropper was at 157 where Tanner Olson, who was just 2-3 on the season coming in, beat No. 1-ranked Larry Bomstad of St. Cloud State 3-1. To try to put that in perspective -- it's like a guy from say, Cleveland State beating Bryce Meredith or something like that. No, Bomstad isn't a national champion, but he's been an All-American. So tip of the cap to the Wolves' Tanner Olsen. You know what, this isn't intentional, but Olsen … is from Wyoming.

Keeping with the Northern Sun, Augustana - the one in South Dakota - upended Minnesota State 17-13, while Upper Iowa topped Southwest Minnesota State 25-13. Out west in Division II, Colorado School of Mines, yes, we've been over this, they're the Orediggers, well, they beat New Mexico Highlands 22-18. That action taking place in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. Also out there, Cal Baptist topped Colorado Mesa 36-9. This is the last year Cal Baptist is eligible to compete in Division II. The school announced it was moving to Division I last year.

In Division III, fifth-ranked Loras tied a school record with its 16th dual meet win of the season. The Duhawks are 16-0 and topped Cornell College 27-9. Things weren't all sunshine and Tony Ramos for Loras as second-ranked Jimmy Davis was upended by Cornell's Phillip Opelt at 149 pounds. Both are returning All-Americans, but Opelt scored two and two late to pick up the win.

Oneonta State beat King's College - that's KING'S with an apostrophe and an S, not King, 49-3. King's College is on just its second coach in school history. Previous coach Ned McGinley stepped down after last season after coaching at the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania school for nearly 50 years.

Gettysburg beat McDaniel 30-7 in Centennial Conference action. Tip of the cap to Andy Vogel, who also runs D3wrestle.com.

In the NAIA, Southeastern beat Campbellsville 21-18 in a Mid-South Conference matchup, while Wayland Baptist beat Missouri Baptist and I'm going to assume they also beat Bacone, but since neither school had reported their scores by MIDNIGHT, I can't really report the men's side of things. Wayland Baptist's women DID officially beat both Missouri Baptist and Bacone in a double triple event in Muskogee. It was two tri meets held simultaneously in men's and women's wrestling.

One JUCO score to pass along, North Idaho topped Division II Simon Fraser 31-15.

Short Time Shots - February 8, 2018   

Cache   

Elmo from Vision Quest once said, it ain't the six minutes, it's what happens in that six minutes. So with that in mind, here comes the most cram-packed six minutes of wrestling news, although, I typically don't care about how long or short this show is, this is Short Time Shots, a look back at the day's wrestling scores and more. I'm your host, Jason Bryant and I was too young to be an extra in Vision Quest.

So the Vision Quest theme has been a constant this week. On Day 302 and 303 of #WrestlingShirtADay, I rocked shirts from RedBubble.com with Thompson High and Hoover High wrestling teams. Louden Swain, as many of you know, represented Thompson, while Brian Shute was a Hoover guy. Of note, his name was Gary Shute in the book. I still recommend reading the book if you get a chance. It won't ruin it for you, but you wrestling people out there might actually relate to it more so than the Hollywood depiction where sometimes fictionalization is more engaging to a viewer.

What isn't fiction is the bit of wrestling history that unfolded on Thursday night in the Southern Conference. Davidson has been one of Division I's doormats pretty much forever. It's rare the Wildcats even win a conference dual, and most of the time when they did, it was against VMI or Campbell. But with Campbell improving, that's likely a thing of the past. One thing the Wildcats program had NEVER done -- beat The Citadel -- that is, until Thursday night when Davidson ended a 54-match winless streak against the Bulldogs in a 25-15 win, the first SoCon win of the season for Andy Lausier's squad. Davidson's wrestling program started in 1920 and the earliest results we can find were from the 1962 season. I'm not saying this to kick The Citadel when they're down, it has been a rough year in Charleston, but Davidson doesn't win duals like this -- until now.

Wins at 125 and 141 helped Davidson pull away late with Michael McClelland's first career victory, a tech fall at 125, and Dustin Runzo picking up the W at 141 to close things out. McClelland was 0-16 on the season coming into the dual.

Also down tobacco road, Duke used technical falls in the last two matches of the dual to get past Appalachian State 25-17. Technical falls by Mitch Finesilver and 157 and Zach Finesilver at 165 gave the Blue Devils the win.

Harvard beat Brown 21-12 in what was dubbed the downtown showdown in downtown Providence. The other half of that showdown saw Division III's fourth-ranked team, Johnson & Wales, beat in-state rival Roger Williams 28-12. Lonnie Morris and the crew with great promotion there.

Keeping it in Division III for a bit, No. 18 Centenary beat Delaware Valley 33-14 and Centenary head coach John Garriques earned his 100th career victory as the Cyclones head coach. He's done a fine job there in Hackettstown, New Jersey.

In a battle of two of our nation's smaller service academies, a win by Victor Raigoza at heavyweight was enough to give the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy a 19-16 upset victory over No. 22 Coast Guard on Thursday. The Mariners, YES, MARINERS, trailed 16-10 before Raigoza's winning decision was set up by Blake Bunce's fall at 197 pounds.

Late heroics were also needed as No. 24 Central College survived a scare in the Iowa Conference from Simpson. The Dutch, yes, Dutch, trust me on this one, got the match-winner from top-ranked 125-pounder C.J. Pestano. The All-American earned a technical fall in the dual's final bout to close things out.

Another notable from Division III was No. 12 North Central won the CCIW - that's the Collegiate Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin - championship on Thursday, outdistancing second-place Millikin 125.5-114.5. The Cardinals won two individual titles and had four runners-up.

Heading back over to Division II, No. 1 St. Cloud State remained unbeaten, improving to 18-0 and winning the program's 27th straight dual. The Huskies wrap up their Northern Sun schedule on February 15 against Augustana -- the one in South Dakota.

And file this under things that can only happen in college sports - Indiana Tech beat Lourdes University of Ohio 30-15 in the NAIA. This was a conference dual. Not super strange since the schools are two hours apart. The thing is, they're both affiliate members of the SOONER Athletic Conference. Like Oklahoma. To get from Lourdes to conference foe Wayland Baptist down in Plainview, Texas? Nearly 1,300 miles.

I should be used to it with my alma mater in the same conference as UTEP, which is 2,000 miles away from Norfolk. You'll need a couple hundred episodes of Short Time Shots to make that drive.

Short Time Shots - February 11, 2018   

Cache   

This is Short Time Shots, a look back at the day's college wrestling scores and more from February 11, 2018. I'm your host, Hall of Fame wrestling writer, broadcaster and announcer Jason Bryant … and I'm holding off on the jokes until later because Ohio University Austin Reese is sitting in an Ohio hospital right now after a gigantic scare.

So Austin Reese is a redshirt junior on the Bobcats wrestling team. The 174-pounder from Urbana was leading Old Dominion's Seldon Wright 7-0 in the second period of Sunday's dual ESPN's stream cut away from the action -- and never returned.

While there's been no official word other than "health complication" regarding what happened with Reese, a glimpse of the action before the expect restart showed Reese flat on the mat, facedown and being quickly tended to by Ohio athletic trainers.

I'd assume EMT's quickly arrived as Reese had to be resuscitated on the mat. Anything other than that is hearsay and I want to respect the privacy of Reese and his family, but I also want to pass along our thoughts, well wishes, and if you're a person of faith, our prayers.

According to Ohio head coach Joel Greenlee, Reese is currently hospitalized, but he's awake, talking and stable. This could have ended in a way no one wants to consider. Let's keep him and all of Ohio U in your thoughts this week and beyond. As for the match, the rest of the dual was canceled. Who won? Who cares. That's not important.

Now to the wrestling …

No. 2 Ohio State got back to its winning ways with an 18-15 win over No. 4 Michigan on Sunday. Wait, winning ways Two unbeaten Buckeyes are no longer unbeaten. The biggest win, no pun intended, came at 285 pounds where Michigan's Adam Coon stopped Ohio State's Kyle Snyder 3-1. The record-crowd of 8,303 loved it as Coon handed Snyder, a two-time NCAA heavyweight champion and of course, two-time World champion and 2016 Olympic champion, his first collegiate defeat since the NCAA finals in 2015. Wrestling Twitter nearly broke, while some people felt the need to puff out chests over a loss. This sets the stage beautifully for March, does it not?

Coon's bearhug throw in the second period was the decisive score. Another Ohio State unbeaten fell as Michigan's Stevan Micic avenged an early-season loss to Luke Pletcher and after giving up the first takedown, Micic bulldozed Pletcher the rest of the bout and picked up the 11-5 decision. Myles Amine upended Bo Jordan with a late takedown at 174. This was just a fun dual all over the place. Myles Martin beat Domenic Abounader at 184. Just good stuff.

Fifth-ranked Oklahoma State won the Bedlam matchup with Oklahoma for the 15th time in 16 tries. The Cowboys saw Dean Heil walk off the mat in Gallagher-Iba Arena for the final time with a 16-6 major decision win over Sooner Mike Longo. Nick Piccininni topped Oklahoma's Christian Moody 8-2 at 125 in the dual's only matchup of ranked opponents -- depending on the poll. Ok, we'll give you Chandler Rogers' 8-2 win over Dawaylon Barnes, too.

No. 8 Arizona State finished the Pac-12 dual slate unbeaten for the first time in 12 years after the Sun Devils beat Cal Poly 38-9.

With both teams hit by the injury and flu bug, No. 9 Virginia Tech took the Commonwealth Clash over rival Virginia 22-18. In matches of note, Ryan Blees beat Sam Krivus in sudden victory at 149, Virginia's Fred Green topped Solomon Chishko 6-4 at 157, Hokie true freshman Hunter Bolen continues to improve as he beat Will Schany 5-4 at 174. Hokie hammers David McFadden, Zack Zavatsky and Jared Haught all did as expected.

No. 12 South Dakota State set a school record by winning its 13th straight dual with a 24-9 win over West Virginia. Ah yes, college sports, where regional conference rivalries between schools in South Dakota and West Virginia are prevalent. Of note, David Kocer won his 100th match as a Jackrabbit.

Kent State knocked off No. 16 Central Michigan 21-13 in what's become the norm - an unpredictable Mid-American Conference -- at least outside of Missouri. Keys there were Stephen Suglio's fall over Matt Stencel at 285 pounds and the Chippewas wrestling without highly-ranked Mason Smith at 141. Casey Sparkman also picked up a nice win for Kent State over Colin Heffernan at 157.

No. 20 Wisconsin upended No. 14 Illinois on the road. This whole swath of teams in the Big Ten from No. 5 to No. 11 position in the Big Ten has been a crap shoot in terms of who's going to win from week to week. Isaiah Martinez of Illinois majored Evan Wick at 165 pounds in a battle of ranked foes. An upset win by Johnny Jimenez at 125 and a fall by Cole Martin at 149 were the difference-makers for the Badgers. Badger, Badger, Badger, Badger, Mushroom, Mushroom.

Ryan Diehl pinned Tommy Thorn at 141 pounds, but No. 21 Minnesota survived an ugly dual with Maryland beating the Terps 26-22 in College Park.

Shout out to coach Heath Eslinger at Chattanooga, who won his 100th match as a head coach in the Mocs' 37-5 win over Gardner-Webb.

Elsewhere in Division I, Drexel beat American 25-16 with 133-pounder Austin DeSanto of Drexel rallying to top Josh Terao 12-10 in sudden victory.

In Division II, Notre Dame College improved to 11-1, sweeping three matches at the Lombardi Duals in St. Louis. The Falcons beat McKendree 24-11, host Maryville 30-10 and Indianapolis 40-6.

In Division III, the top upset came from Middletown, Connecticut where Wesleyan topped No. 16 Brockport 27-16 en route to a 3-0 day in a quad they hosted. Other Cardinals victories were a 47-9 win over Division II American International and a 43-9 win over Norwich.

Short Time Shots - November 8, 2018   

Cache   

Two things are notable today - first off, because of the generosity and sheer awesomeness of the Patreon contributors to the Mat Talk Podcast Network, I’m talking into my brand new Shure SM7B. Yes, it’s the microphone you see on a lot of these podcasts, including Joe Rogan, but I’ve had my eye on it since ever since, to quote my friend Cliff Fretwell. The other important thing is a happy birthday to my mom Jeanette back in Poquoson, Virginia. When I started this Mat Talk Online enterprise while I was a freshman in college, I probably spent more time updating high school wrestling scores than I did going to class.

I’m Jason Bryant and this is Short Time Shots, a look back at the night’s college wrestling scores and more.

Wait. There is no PROBABLY in that statement. In my college years, while working at a newspaper, running a website, announcing tournaments on the weekends, there were two other choices, beer and books. It took me far too long to understand the importance that your GPA SHOULD be higher than your BAC. But we were all young and stupid once and my mom, she put up with it, supporting what was then a hobby and now it’s a sustainable career. Don’t think for a second I’m not aware of what that means.

Speaking of my tenure in college, I guess there’s a third big thing. It’s been 5,201 days since I completed my last class, Communications Research Methods II at Old Dominion University. Today, I paid off the last bit of my student loans. 14 years and I’m no longer sitting with student loan dept. To my credit, there was a good chunk of that seven years I was in college that I paid my own way.

But you’re not here to listen to me wax poetic about my glory days, especially since my next birthday is the big 4-0.

As Gantry on TheMat Forum said earlier, today the only D1 game in town was Northern Illinois and North Dakota State. And if you’re a NIU fan, you could have done what Gantry did and check out after the first five weights. No. 22 North Dakota State stomped Northern Illinois 35-4 as the BiZon won nine out of 10 matches and closed things out with falls by Cordell Eaton and Brandon Metz.

There was some notable news further west within the great state of North Dakota as the University of Mary, the MARAUDERS, had a packed house in Bismarck as they topped Minot State 31-12. Talk about an environment that Adam Aho is growing out there. Just check Twitter for UMary wrestling and you’ll see it yourself. Wild stuff. Even though both schools are part of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference, this was a non-conference matchup.

Emmanuel, which is in its first year as a full member of Division II, knocked off Ouachita Baptist 25-22. Two forfeits and a fall at 165 were enough for the Lions to get past the Tigers, oh my!

Dad jokes.

A lot of inter-divisional matches on Thursday as Division II Ashland improved to 5-0 after dominating NAIA Lourdes 43-6. Returning Division II national champion Bret Romanzak got his championship ring and picked up a technical fall at 165 pounds.

Going back to the Dakotas, Northern State, which is in SOUTH Dakota, topped Division III Concordia-Moorhead, which is in Minnesota, across the river from Fargo and the Bison Turf 23-14. Wins by Kolton Roth and Caden Moore down the stretch helped give the Wolves the W.

Colorado Mesa beat Cloud County Community College 36-12, while Colorado School of Mines beat Northeastern Junior College 32-6. That’s a pair of Colorado Division II schools with wins over junior colleges, in case you’re counting at home.

Earlier, we mentioned Lions and Tigers, well, to complete the whole circle of cheesiness, West Virginia Tech, the GOLDEN BEARS, beat Bluefield College 31-24. Bluefield is in its second year as a program, but this was the first official dual in program history.

Out in Kansas, Benedictine beat St. Mary 27-18. The Ravens earned three wins by fall, nevermore. In the NAIA, sixth-ranked Menlo beat Southern Oregon 27-15, while the Menlo women beat Southern Oregon 40-4.

Also in the NJCAA, No. 20 North Idaho knocked off No. 22 Iowa Western 30-19. This was close until falls at 197 and 285 by Hunter Gregerson and Connor Sullivan gave the Cardinals the win over the Reivers. YES, Reivers. What the heck is a Reiver? A river pirate. Google. North Idaho also upended No. 6 Iowa Central 20-19. Talk about burying the lede.

There’s always some things you can’t quite believe when we talk about some of the smaller divisions. From the NJCAA-NAIA battle, which in case you’re wondering, those duals COUNT for the junior colleges, but they don’t count for the NAIA schools - yeah, NAIA rule about non-four year schools not counting for official records - well, NAIA Oklahoma Wesleyan, which started its program last year, but didn’t really get it off the ground until this year, won five of the six contested matches against Labette on Thursday. Those five wins were all bonus, four by fall and one by technical fall. Well, Labette picked up a fall and four forfeits. So do the math - A fall and four forfeits is 30 points. Four falls and a technical fall is 29 points. Ouch. Oklahoma Wesleyan won’t have a problem with numbers in the future, but that’s a tough way to lose.

Neosho, by the way, beat both teams. Props Nick Nothern.

No report as of “press time” on the Simpson-Lassen dual out in California and Life Pacific’s first ever home dual against Mt. San Antonio.

That’s all for now, and as always, you can be like the good folks who help this network each and every month by contributing to the Mat Talk Podcast Network at mattalkonline.com/jointheteam.

Short Time Shots - November 11, 2018   

Cache   

SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!

(I made this part up on the fly)

This is Short Time Shots, a comically unfunny wrestling podcast aimed at giving you, the wrestling fan, everything you need to know about the day’s happenings in college wrestling. I’m your host Jason Bryant, and here’s something about me, November 11 marks the 10-year anniversary of my first ever podcast.

That was called Wrestling 411 with my co-host Kyle Klingman. I’ll actually break that historic show down later this month as Kyle and I talk about that doomed but life-changing project and its impact on wrestling, whether you remember it or not.

Speaking of things people wouldn’t rather remember - and I’m talking about our friends in Kent, Ohio.

No. 1 Penn State won its 46th dual in a row as the Nittany Lions blasted Kent State 52-3 at sold-out Rec Hall. After dropping the first match at 125 pounds, Penn State reeled off nine straight bonus victories, including six falls in a row, to trounce the Golden Flashes, who wrestled without returning All-American Kyle Conel at 197 pounds.

The debut of Roman Bravo-Young was sound as the true freshman from Arizona registered his first collegiate fall over Tim Rooney at 133. Just two days earlier, Rooney lost a tough one to Iowa’s Austin DeSanto in a dual at Kent State. What impressed me the most about Bravo-Young was his top work. He good. We use that F-word a lot around Penn State - Fun. Love them or hate them, Penn State is freaking fun to watch - probably not that fun to wrestle, though.

No. 5 Michigan opened up its dual season with a 32-12 win over rival Central Michigan up in Mount Pleasant, a result leaving Bloodround’s Kevin Claunch torn to his core. Big Wolverine bonus wins were registered by Stevan Micic at 133, Kanen Storr at 141, Malik Amine at 149, Logan Massa at 165 and Myles Amine at 174. We did NOT see Mason Parris at heavyweight, as an FYI.

No football-like comebacks for ODU on the wrestling mats on Sunday. A day after its football team rallied from a 28-0 deficit to beat North Texas, ODU’s wrestling team fell behind 18-0 … and it got worse as No. 7 Missouri continued its dominance over the Monarchs as the Tigers rolled into the Ted Constant Convocation Center and topped ODU 40-3 in an early-season MAC contest.

The match which saw the most eyes came at 141 pounds where a pair of All-Americans tangled. It was Missouri’s Jaydin Eierman who came away with the W, pinning Eastern Michigan transfer Sa’Derian Perry in 5:05. Missouri also picked up bonus wins at 125, 133, 165, 174 and 197 pounds to roll.

At the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, a big crowd saw No. 11 Arizona State top No. 19 South Dakota State 30-9 in the dual meet coaching debut for Damion Hahn of SDSU. Nothing really unexpected here. The dual’s two returning NCAA champions, Seth Gross of South Dakota State and Zahid Valencia of Arizona State both scored falls for their respective teams. The bout that was probably of the most interest in terms of a potential toss up went Arizona State’s way at 149 pounds where Josh Maruca topped Henry Pohlmeyer 5-3. ASU All-Americans Ryan Millhof and Josh Shields won big as well.

No. 24 North Carolina opened up its season with a 23-10 over Chattanooga. The Mocs jumped out to an early 10-0 lead after the first three weights, highlighted by Chris Debien’s 10-5 win over A.C. Headlee at 141. After that, it was all Tar Heels as Coleman Scott’s squad swept the last seven bouts.

Buffalo went 3-0 in sweeping a quad hosted by Bucknell on Sunday. The Bulls topped VMI 34-5, Cleveland State 34-6 and host Bucknell 25-12. It wasn’t smooth sailing the entire time for coach John Stutzman’s team as Bucknell did steal a few bouts. At 125 pounds, Geo Barzona knocked off Buffalo’s Kyle Akins 5-4, while Bucknell 157-pounder Zach Hartman upended Alex Smythe, who was trending upwards in the eyes of many after his rapid improvement.

VMI’s Neal Richards went 3-0 in his three bouts at 174 pounds.

In the Big 12, Fresno State cruised by Northern Colorado 34-4 before they headed south down I-25 and were greeted by an Air Force team that wasn’t going to let them do the Colorado D1 double. Air Force beat Fresno State 19-15 with the swing victory coming in overtime at 174 where Air Force’s Randy Meneweather beat the Bulldogs’ Ricky Padilla 3-1 in sudden victory.

Iowa State opened up its dual slate with a 37-3 win over SIU Edwardsville. Impressive performances turned in by Austin Gomez at 133 as he earned a first-period technical fall. Ian Parker and Marcus Coleman added falls for the Cyclones at 141 and 174 pounds.

In Division II, No. 6 Pitt-Johnstown topped No. 5 Wheeling Jesuit 19-15 in Wheeling. Fifth-ranked Levi Niebauer picked up a major decision at 197 pounds the put the bout out of reach and gave coach Pat Pecora his 583rd dual meet victory. Yes, he’s in his 43rd year at the helm.

Central Oklahoma gave up the first and last wins of the dual and thumped NAIA Oklahoma City 34-6. Oklahoma City head coach Sam Hazewinkel, the dual threat World and Olympic teamer spent the last two seasons prior as an assistant coach at Central Oklahoma.

In Division III, Muhlenberg won the Electric City Duals at Scranton going 4-0. The MULES beat host Scranton, Keystone, Lackawanna and the club team from Temple. No idea whether or not there were any Man in the High Castle references at the event. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Watch Season 3 on Amazon Prime.

Going back to New York as the round-robin style Journeymen Collegiate Classic took place a day after the Northeast Duals.

Some of the top results saw Lehigh’s Nick Farro knock off Oklahoma’s Christian Moody 3-2 at 125 pounds. Lehigh’s Brandon Paetzell beat Wyoming All-American Montorie Bridges in pool competition, then fell to Purdue’s Ben Thornton 5-1 in the final at that particular weight class pairing.

Oklahoma’s Dom Demas had a solid outing at 141 pounds, beating Lock Haven’s Kyle Shoop, Wyoming’s Sam Turner and Purdue’s Nate Limmex. Not too shabby, especially as he got the fall over Limmex at 1:38.

NC State’s Justin Oliver topped Davion Jeffries of Oklahoma 7-2 in the A-Bracket final at 149 pounds. Army West Point’s Luke Weiland emerged at 157’s A bracket. Weiland topped Oklahoma’s Justin Thomas 9-0 in the final. Thomas defeated Appalachian State’s Matt Zovitoski and Utah Valley’s Grant LaMont in his side of the pool.

Lock Haven All-American Chance Marsteller beat Wyoming’s Branson Ashworth 7-4 in the A-bracket final at 165 pounds. Lehigh’s Jordan Kutler beat Purdue’s Dylan Lydy 3-1 at 174.

NC State’s Nick Reenan’s return to folkstyle wrestling was successful one. He topped Lehigh’s Ryan Preisch 5-1 in the top bracket final at 184 pounds. Army West Point’s Rocco Caywood had a win over Lehigh’s Chris Weiler in the pool competition before knocking off NC State’s Malik McDonald 4-2 to claim the title at 197 pounds. Lehigh’s Jake Jakobsen won the B bracket at the weight and 197 is shaping up to be real interesting at Lehigh already this year.

Lehigh heavyweight Jordan Wood topped Utah Valley’s Tate Orndorff 6-0 in the final at 285 pounds. Orndorff had a solid 6-5 win over Lock Haven’s Thomas Haines in pool competition.

At the Jonathan Kaloust Bearcat Open up in Binghamton where the Bearcats program is celebrating its 50th wrestling anniversary, Cornell was strong to quite strong.

At 133, Chaz Tucker beat Vitali Arujau 7-5 in an all-Big Red Final. At 157, Josh Humphreys of Lehigh came away with three falls, a tech and a major on his way to the title. Two of those wins were over NCAA qualifiers Hunter Ladnier of Harvard and Mike D’Angelo, wrestling unattached for Princeton.

Brown’s Jonathan Viruet majored George Mason’s Colston DiBlasi 11-0 in the finals at 165 pounds.

NC State’s Trent Hidlay knocked off All-American Brandon Womack of Cornell in the second round, then beat Penn State’s Mason Manville in the semifinals en route to the title at 174 pounds. Pretty good starting weekend for the true freshman.

Other notable winners were Brown’s Christian LaFragola at 197 and George Mason’s Matt Voss at 285.

At the Ohio Intercollegiate Open, the Ohio State Buckeyes pretty much dominated the field. Well, there isn’t too much pretty much, it was dominating. There were a lot of OSU wrestle-offs in the finals. Rather than go through all of them, here’s the notables.

Micah Jordan topped teammate Sammy Sasso 9-7 in the final at 149 pounds.

Ke-Shawn Hayes won at 157, topping Elijah Cleary 6-5. Cleary upended Michigan’s Will Lewan 3-1 in sudden victory in the semifinals. People notice since Lewan topped teammate Alec Pantaelo last week at the Michigan State Open.

Ethan Smith topped teammate TeShan Campbell 8-5 in the finals at 174. More Ohio State stuff happened with titles at 184 with Gavin Hoffman winning, Chase Singletary won at 285. Singletary defeated Mason Parris of Michigan in the semis and beat D2 All-American Kam Teacher of Notre Dame College.

Short Time Shots - November 17, 2017   

Cache   

Finally, wrestling has COME BACK TO FRESNO. With apologies to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, that’s the top story for Friday, November 17. This is SHORT TIME SHOTS, I’m Hall of Fame announcer, broadcaster and writer Jason Bryant

What isn’t a top story -- I actually owned the original version of NBA Jam with Charles Barkley on the Phoenix Suns instead of THUNDER Dan Majerle. But he coaches Grand Canyon and they cut wrestling, so screw them.

While the score wasn’t super important, the fact we had wrestling at the SaveMart Center in Fresno, California for the first time in almost 11 years, that’s the deal. Sure, 14th-ranked Illinois piled up bonus points and Isaiah Martinez won his 100th collegiate match, but we saw a school President, Joseph Castro, man up and say “This area cares about wrestling and we’re bringing back our team.” Donkey like former AD Thomas Boeh might have put the team on ice for a while, but coach Troy Steiner and his crew are going to build a winner in the Central Valley    That didn’t happen on Friday though. Two big wins were registered by the Bulldogs, whom I represented today with #WrestlingShirtADay. Kristian Olivas topped Eric Barone at 149 and Greg Gaxiola knocked off Kyle Langenderfer. I just want to play some Nerfherder after saying Langenderfer. Santa has a Mullet -- look it up, it’s a song by Nerfherder.

Oh, I-Mar improved to 100-2 all-time. He’s good.

Top-ranked Penn State is probably the best road draw attendance-wise in the country. The Nittany Lions saw over 3,000 witness their 40-2 blitzkrieg of Binghamton on Friday night. Seven of the Penn State wins came via bonus points with Jason Nolf and Zain Retherford each earning falls, while Bo Nickel fell to third in the Penn State individual Hodge standings merely capturing a major decision. The one Penn State loss? You guessed it, 125.

No. 6 Minnesota headed west to Brookings and beat No. 16 South Dakota State in front 3,063 fans at Frost Arena. The highlight there was at 133 pounds where No. 1 Seth Gross topped No. 6 Mitch McKee 9-4. South Dakota State did score a modest upset at 157 pounds where Luke Zilverberg beat 10th-ranked Jake Short 5-2.

No. 8 Iowa swept the Iowa City Duals. In other news, water is wet.  

Zack Zavatsky needed overtime to get past Bryce Carr at 184 pounds in the top bout of the night as No. 9  Virginia Tech beat host Chattanooga 28-7. Little homer note, B.C. LaPrade picked up his first career dual meet victory. He’s from New Kent, which is right up the road from where I grew up and he’s named after a headache power for a reason.

Even without a couple of its regular starters, 10th-ranked Lehigh flew past No. 24 Edinboro 27-14. Scott Parker continued his torrid start, pinning nationally ranked Korbin Myers at 5:33 to spark the Mountain Hawks victory. Also of note for Lehigh, Gordon Wolf earned a 16-8 major decision over Austin Matthews at 165.

On paper, Cornell didn’t look that strong. On the mat, No. 19 Cornell said we’re Ivy Leaguers, whatever that means. The Big Red won seven of 10 and got three falls en route to a 30-10 pasting of No. 13 Northern Iowa. Chaz Tucker set the tone with a fall over Jack Wagner to start the dual at 133, while Jon Jay Chavez and Ben Darmstadt also picked up pins. 184-pound freshman Max Dean, the younger brother of four-time All-American Gabe, announced his presence Nuke Laloosh style -- with authority -- beating All-American Drew Foster 9-7. Also in the dual, UNI’s Taylor Lujan beat All-American Brandon Womack 5-3. Oh, and that freshman, Yianni Diakomihalis, he beat Josh Alber 5-2.

Two-time All-American Bryce Meredith topped super freshman Chad Red 11-5 at 141, but that was the only read bright spot for the Cowboys as the Huskers won seven out of 10 to cruise. Nebraska’s Tyler Berger outlasted Archie Colgan 5-4 at 157, while Nebraska’s Isaiah White, last year’s Division II champion at Notre Dame College, topped Branson Ashworth 7-5. 

Ryan Solomon’s major decision at heavyweight rallied No. 25 Pittsburgh past CSU Bakersfieid. Things weren’t so hot for the Panthers otherwise, as No. 18 Wisconsin declawed Pitt 26-6. Yes, cliché puns!

Elsewhere, Virginia topped Gardner-Webb 30-11. The Wahoos picked up falls from Louie Hayes at 125 and Andrew Atkinson at 165.

In Division II, No. 6 Pitt-Johnstown topped PSAC rival Kutztown 24-10. Five of the six ranked Mountain Cat wrestlers picked up victories, including a technical fall at 174 pounds from 2016 D2 champion Tyler Reinhart. Kutztown’s Ryan Appleby, ranked fifth, did knock off 11th-ranked D.J. Sims 5-3 at heavyweight.

In the NAIA, fifth-ranked Providence welcomed a new member to the family as head coach Caleb Schaeffer and his wife Annie welcomed Kamden Kendrick to the world. He’s already able to take dad down. The school, formerly known as Great Falls, gave Coach Schaeffer a nice “it’s a boy” gift, beating Warner Pacific 34-11. Sixth-ranked University of the Cumberlands -- they’re coached by Chris Fleeger -- the Patriots beat Indiana Tech 31-13. No. 11 Southern Oregon also beat Eastern Oregon in a directional battle in the Cascade Conference. 

And of note in the junior college ranks, Western Wyoming topped Northwest College 30-15. What’s notable about a junior college dual between teams most of you have probably never heard of? Well, Uzbekistan native Nodir Safarov, who’s ranked in the WORLD, is wrestling at 133 pounds for Northwest College. He had a fall in 26 seconds. 

BOOM SHAKA LAKKA.

Short Time Shots - November 17, 2018   

Cache   

If you recently listened to the episode of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast where Kyle Klingman and I talked about our experiences 10 years ago with the Wrestling 411 project, you’ll know that year, I totaled my car and had to buy a new one.

Well, it’s almost fitting that we put a bow on that year in an episode and my trusty 2008 Chevy Trailblazer finally got retired. My wife and I said the last time we got the car out of the shop - which happened to be in Iowa City prior to the World Cup - that this was the last repair. Anything else, and we’d get a new car.

Sure enough, the driver’s side window went on the blink and with winter the way it is, that was the final straw. And no, we are NOT minivan folk. So rather than sit and watch wrestling on Saturday, I listened to ODU close out Foreman Field with a football victory and watched updates on Twitter - I’m Jason Bryant and this is Short Time Shots, an update for you, the wrestling fan, on the pertinent happenings in and around college wrestling for November 17.

This day was actually pretty loaded when you look at it. There were 84 dual meets and over a dozen tournaments across all divisions - and that’s also exactly what this program covers - all divisions. If you do the math, there’s approximately 450 varsity college wrestling teams in this country. Division I accounts for 75 of those and it goes to 77 next year. That’s 17 percent of college wrestling. This show talks about that 17 percent and as much as the other 83 percent as possible.

So enough with the car buying and the statistical pleasantries, let’s get to the upsets!

Why are we starting with upsets? Because there were two of them on Saturday, the first seeing No. 24 North Carolina head to the valley of the sun and knock off No. 8 Arizona State in Tempe.

The Tar Heels benefitted from a major decision at 141 pounds by Jaime Hernandez and a fall from Devin Kane at 174 and a rare brother vs. brother matchup at 285 pounds. In case you’re wondering, returning national champion Zahid Valenica of Arizona State bumped up to 184 and beat All-American Chip Ness 9-6. That bump opened the door open for Kane to pin Jacen Petersen in the third period. With Carolina leading 16-15, Cory Daniel bested his younger brother Brady Daniel 12-3 to cement the upset for Coleman Scott’s squad.

The other big upset on the day saw unranked Pitt pick up falls from Micky Phillipi and Taleb Rahmani as the Panthers from Pittsburgh knocked off the 14th-ranked Panthers of Northern Iowa 21-19. UNI led 19-15 heading into the final two bouts, but a pair of transfers - Kellan Stout and Demetrius Thomas - both picked up six-point decisions to give Keith Gavin his biggest win of his coaching career. Thomas, an NAIA national champion as a freshman and a runner-up a year ago, beat UNI’s Carter Isley 9-3 to make it a final.

In Brookings, South Dakota, over 1,800 people were a bit let down as Seth Gross didn’t weigh-in, denying the much anticipated Gross vs. Daton Fix match from happening. The dual, however, wasn’t even much of a consideration as No. 4 Oklahoma State smashed host South Dakota State 45-6. The only Cowboy loss was an injury default at 149 pounds by Boo Lewallen.

No. 8 NC State won three duals at the Wolfpack Duals, topping Davidson 47-6 and then picking up wins over Division II UNC Pembroke 40-0 and NAIA Reinhardt 35-6. The rest of the Pack gets to the mats on Sunday at the Wolfpack Wrestling Club Open in Raleigh.

Trailing 15-14 with just one bout to go, No. 9 Cornell needed All-American Max Dean to deliver a victory. He did that, but did it with some flare as Dean pinned Jackson Moomau in the first period to lift the Big Red past visiting West Virginia 20-15. West Virginia jumped out to a 9-0 lead after picking up wins at 197, 285 and 125. Noah Adams had the duals’ most notable win, a 13-7 win over nationally ranked Ben Honis of Cornell. We also saw Vito Arujau wrestling at 133 and Chaz Tucker up at 141 for the Big Red. Hrmmmm.

No. 21 Utah Valley swept a trio of duals as the Wolverines improved to 5-1 with wins over Northern Illinois, Clarion and Harper College. What was one of the most interesting, and perhaps unusual things of this quad at Northern Illinois was the three matches lost by Harper College, which is a junior college in Illinois, were by identical 44-3 scores - and it wasn’t the same winner. Hrm.

There were a ton of duals in the world of Division III with Roanoke, Virginia hosting the Southeast Duals. Mount Union, which was fresh off its big win over Baldwin Wallace this week, went 4-0 with a 32-15 win over Messiah, a 33-14 win over Lycoming and a pair of shutouts, 54-0 over Huntingdon and 51-0 over Penn College. Wilkes also went 4-0, beating Averett 27-12, Bluefield 51-0, Greensboro 33-10 and Otterbein 30-21.

Central College - they’re the Dutch and coached by a guy named Van Kley - fitting I know - went out to Muhlenberg in Pennsylvania and won five duals to come away with the title at the Scotty Woods Duals. Central beat host Muhlenberg 36-6, Washington & Jefferson 42-11 and Keystone 54-3 as well as two shutout wins over a pair of junior colleges.

Olivet swept the Comet Duals, going 4-0 with wins over Manchester, Millikin, Cornell College and Mt. St. Joseph. Individually, Manchester’s JaVon Phillips was most impressive, pinning all four of his opponents on the day at 157 pounds.

Up in New England, Matt Oney picked up his first win as the new head coach at WPI as the Engineers, yeah, go figure a Polytechnic school would be called the Engineers, beat Castleton 31-19. What was most notable though at the WPI duals was No. 14 Roger Williams picking off No. 24 Stevens Tech 24-18. Anthony Malfitano’s pin at 197 pounds was the back-breaker, giving the Hawks the win.

We did have some tournament action to tackle with the Navy Classic taking place in Annapolis. Michigan State had two champions and nine placewinners overall to capture the team title with 126 points. Indiana was second with 95.5, followed by Navy and Old Dominion.

Six different teams had champions, as Michigan State was led by individual champions RayVon Foley at 125 pounds and Cameron Caffey at 184. Foley beat Ohio’s Shakur Laney 7-4, while Caffey beat Old Dominion’s Antonio Agee 12-6. Navy had two champs - Casey Cobb at 133 and Nicholas Gil at 141. Gil beat All-American Sa’Derian Perry 7-6.

Other champions were Josh Heil of Campbell at 149, Larry Early of ODU at 157, Jonathan Viruet of Brown at 165, Andrew Morgan of Campbell at 174, Jake Kleimola of Indiana at 197 and Zack Parker of Ohio at 285.

Host Springfield won the Doug Parker Invitational, placing seven and outdistancing second-place Centenary 111.5 to 102.5. Nine different teams had champions with Springfield’s Ryan Peters at 141 and heavyweight Joe Fusco picking up titles for the Pride.

Some notables from the opens around the country:

At Lindenwood
Ohio State’s Malik Heinselman edged Iowa State’s Alex Mackall 11-10 to take top honors at 125 pounds. Iowa State’s Austin Gomez reportedly stormed back from a big deficit to claim a 15-13 win over Danny Swan of Division II Lindenwood in the finals at 133. Iowa’s Vince Turk beat Iowa State’s Ian Parker 6-5 at 141. Iowa’s Nelson Brands won at 165, beating former Hawkeye Joey Gunther in the semifinals on his way to the title. NAIA national champion Lucas Lovvorn of Baker won the title at 174. Among his notable wins was a 5-4 win over Iowa State’s Marcus Coleman in the semifinals. Illinois’ Emery Parker and Iowa State’s Willie Miklus won titles at 184 and 197, respectively, while Iowa freshman Anthony Cassioppi had three falls and a major on his way to a heavyweight crown.

Also of note, Oklahoma State freshman Travis Wittlake won five matches to claim gold at 174 pounds in the freshman/sophomore division …

Short Time Shots - November 26, 2017   

Cache   

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday - The Monsters of Mash, the Crushers of Crash coming to Civic Auditorium. FANS, meet the Nitro Girls. KIDS, meet SpongeBob SquarePants. You’ll see the five-story car-crunching monster CAR ZILLA not to mention monkey-driven, rocket-powered JET CARS! $5 buys a seat, but you’ll only need the edge -- plus ticket, title, license and service charge.

Yes, I’ve done that a time or two. My friend Nate calls that “Twinkie announcer voice,” it’s basically when I go so over the top like a monster truck commercial combined with my penchant for just announcing everything I do. One of my college roommates told me once that he knew I’d be good at broadcasting, because he said I narrated everything I did. “Looking for my shoes, my keys are over there.” Jeff Palmer, miss you man.

As for me, I’m Jason Bryant, your monster-truck talking, podcast-producing Hall of Fame jack of all trades and this is Short Time Shots, a look back at the happenings in college wrestling for November 26, 2017.

While I focus mostly on the college side of things here on this particular version of Short Time, Richie Lewis, the 732 Savage, goes out to Poland and he’ll bring a U23 World Championship back to New Jersey. He picked up the gold at 70kg in a day that finally saw the U.S. win some medals. Joey McKenna and Ty Walz also came home with bronze medals. McKenna, as most, if not all of you know, is at Ohio State, while Walz Is on staff at Virginia Tech.

NOW, to the duals. That’s duals with an A, not with an E, as someone asked on Facebook just the other day.

We start in Fargo where third-ranked Oklahoma State mauled North Dakota State 40-3. The Cowboys saw two-time NCAA champion Dean Heil win his 100th career match with a tech fall over Nico Colunga at 141 pounds. Six Cowboys scored bonus points, including a fall from Kaid Brock at 133 and Keegan Moore at 184. Andrew Marsden picked up a first-period technical fall at 197 pounds. Oklahoma State improved to 3-0, 1-0 in the Big 12 while North Dakota State fell to 0-3.

Fourth-ranked Missouri survived a scare in Charlottesville as the Tigers needed a win from heavyweight Austin Myers to pick up the 18-15 win over Virginia. Missouri wrestled without All-Americans Jaydin Eierman, who didn’t make the trip and Willie Miklus, who dinged up his knee in Saturday’s pin over Virginia Tech’s Jared Haught. Of note, Louie Hayes knocked off Barlow McGhee 4-1 at 125 and Jack Mueller has shown zero problems moving up to a new weight class. The Texas native topped Missouri’s John Erneste 9-2 at 133. Both teams won five, but it was bonus points from Joey LaVallee, Daniel Lewis and Canten Marriott that allowed the Tigers to survive their trip through the Commonwealth.

No. 12 Arizona State won the last five to pull away from No. 16 South Dakota State 25-13 in Tempe. The Jackrabbits led 13-7 halfway through, but wins by Josh Maruca, Josh Shields, Anthony and Zahid Valencia clinched the win, while Kordell Norfleet’s win over Brady Ayers at 184 in the dual’s final bout was the icing on the cake. Zeke Jones likes cake. I know this. I worked with Mr. Larry for three years. It takes him forever to order it, and usually he gets his assistant to do it for him.

No. 22 Rider ended up with a split on its jaunt to Iowa. After getting hammered in Carver-Hawkeye on Friday night, coach John Hangey picked up his first win as the head coach of the Broncs with a 22-15 win over Iowa State in a dual held ON A STAGE at Stephens Auditorium. Kevin Dresser brought the whole theater thing out to Ames. Only real surprise there came at 133 pounds where Anthony Cefolo pinned Iowa State’s Ian Parker in the first period. Cefolo was beaten on Friday night by unheralded Phillip Laux 5-1. From the Cyclone perspective, freshman Kanen Storr had a solid 11-6 win over Tyson Dippery at 141.

That’s all for the ranked stuff, but down tobacco road, North Carolina stopped Appalachian State 30-6. Dalton Macri made his first appearance at 125 pounds for the Heels and picked up a 12-3 major decision in the process. Best individual result there was All-American Ethan Ramos’ 12-2 major decision at 174 pounds over Forrest Przybysz (that’s Pribish, if you’re reading this).

Binghamton swept the Hoosier Duals at Indiana, beating Eastern Michigan 28-13, Division II Indianapolis 35-7 and host Indiana 29-6. Binghamton, which just got beat 40-2 by Penn State, won eight out of 10 weights on the road, against a Big Ten team. The Bearcats’ Joe Nelson had a 9-7 win over NCAA qualifier Elijah Oliver, who continues to struggle here in the early going.

And remember folks, from now until December 6, all current team members of the Mat Talk Podcast Network and all NEW patrons will be entered into a drawing to win a $150 prize pack from Compound Team Wear and my man Cliff Fretwell.

Short Time Shots - December 3, 2017   

Cache   

Another Sunday of wrestling is in the books and a completed garage project is now off my to-do list. It’s Short Time Shots, a look at the day’s top wrestling scores and more, I’m your host Jason Bryant, and today, we’re going to teach poodles how to fly.

Just a limited schedule in Division I, but we had a dandy at sold-out PPL Center in Allentown as No. 1 Penn State rallied to beat No. 5 Lehigh 23-19. The Mountain Hawks took advantage of PSU’s lightweight situation as Darian Cruz and Scotty Parker got Lehigh out to a 12-0 lead with back-to-back falls. No, we didn’t see Corey Keener for Penn State. Luke Karam extended the lead to 15-0 after a slight 2-0 upset over Jered Cortez. After that, the Penn State buzzsaw would get fired up, but the big five was only four on Sunday as Vincenzo Joseph was also out of action at 165. Zain Retherford and Jason Nolf did Retherford-Nolf kinds of things, while Mark Hall edged Jordan Kutler and Bo Nickal got past Ryan Preisch by matching 3-2 scores.

Anthony Cassar and Nick Nevills closed the door on the upset bid with two decisions. Nevills scored an escape and rode out Jordan Wood to earn a 2-0 win and lock up Penn State’s 35th straight dual win. The dual drew 9,896 fans, almost doubling Lehigh’s all-time record of just over 5,000 set against Penn State last year.

Next, we discover Secrets of the Universe where today we’re going to learn how to make plutonium from common household items.

In Spearfish, South Dakota, 17th-ranked South Dakota State swept the Dakota Showcase, as expected. The Jackrabbits picked up big wins over Division II Augustana -- the one in South Dakota obviously -- and Northern State as well as one over NAIA Dakota Wesleyan. This event had previously been held in Sioux Falls at the Pentagon -- yes, there’s an arena with such name, not a giant military office building. Chris Bono’s squad now 3-2 on the year.

Frank Beasley may have found the marble in the oatmeal and he gets to drink from the fire hose as his George Mason Patriots picked up a 32-10 win over Sacred Heart on Sunday. The win is Beasley’s first as a head coach. As an ODU alum, you know the best thing I can say about George Mason University? At least they’re not VCU.

This part of the program brought to you by Spatula City.

On Long Island, Penn went 3-0 at the Hofstra Duals, beating host Hofstra 34-8, The Citadel 35-10 and edging Campbell 16-15. The math tells you it’s a 5-5 split so the bonus point that made the difference came at 197 pounds from Frank Mattiace. Hofstra beat The Citadel 43-6 and Campbell beat Hofstra 30-9.

The only other major dual meet event was down in South Cackalacky was Newberry hosted the Newberry Duals. St. Cloud State, the No. 1 team in Division II, went 4-0 and picked up 17 victories by fall. NAIA Life was solid, beating Emmanuel 42-3 and first-year Queens 41-10 before falling to Division II Limestone 23-9. Host Newberry did pick up one seriously big win as Jordan Simpson beat past national champion Brett Velasquez of St. Cloud State at 125 pounds.

Tournament-wise, it was T. Boone Slim Pickens except for Oklahoma State, which won eight titles at the Bob Smith Fort Hays State Open. By the way, I’ve met Bob Smith. Helluva guy. Seriously. Quality dude all around. Oh, the tournament. Boo Lewallaen beat Geo Martinez -- again -- at 149 pounds. They’re both Cowboys. Nebraska freshman Mikey Labriola topped Jacobe Smith of Oklahoma State 7-6 at 174.

At the MSU Moorhead Dragon Open, the only real notable was at heavyweight and it’s only notable to most because these guys were hammers in high school. North Dakota State’s Brandon Metz pinned South Dakota State’s Kevin Vough in the finals of the Red Division.

At the Colorado Mesa Open, mostly Division II guys out there, but Utah Valley’s Tate Orndorff did earn a fall in 16 seconds, the fastest of the tournament.

Be sure to check out the trailer for Conan the Librarian, that’s all I’ve got for now, remember, we’ve got it all on UHF, I’m Jason Bryant.

Short Time Shots - December 8, 2017   

Cache   

Friday night and I’ve gotta catch a flight to New York in a few hours. By the time you hear this, I’ll be snoozing away hoping a drink cart doesn’t slam into my knee or elbow. I’m Hall of Fame wrestling writer, broadcaster and announcer Jason Bryant, and this is Short Time Shots, a look back at the day’s scores and more from the world of wrestling.

Before we get into the dual meet action, there’s a pretty good little tournament going on in California, the California Community College state championships. Fresno City leads after the first day of competition with eight wrestlers reaching the semifinals and leading second-place Mt. San Antonio College 98.5 to 80.5. Cerritos is a distant third with 54.5.

All those results are at trackwrestling.com and check out John Sachs’ tech-fall.com for photos from the event. Count the tattoos, you’ll be there a while.

Rutgers fans showed up in force, setting a school-record for attendance with 6,754 fans at the RAC, but key wins by Alex Marinelli at 165 and Joey Gunther at 174 lifted seventh-ranked Iowa to a 23-15 win over upset-minded Rutgers on Friday.

Iowa won its 23rd straight conference road dual and improved to 4-0 all-time against the Scarlet Knights. Rutgers jumped out to a 12-0 lead after wins by Nick Suriano, Scott Delvechhio and Mike Van Brill, but then the strength of Iowa’s middle weights shone through, including Marinelli’s first dual meet victory coming against U23 World Champion Richie Lewis, who went up a weight from his expected competition weight of 157 pounds. Gunther fell behind early but a third-period takedown in the final minute plus riding time was the difference as he snatched away a victory from Joe Grello.5-4. Nick Gravina gave Rutgers it’s last lead of the bout with a win over Mitch Bowman at 184 before Cashtag Wilke and Sam Stoll closed the door on Rutgers’ upset hopes. Stoll finished off Razohnn Gross in 2:40 to end it.

Nate Rotert’s major decision at 197 pounds and Alex Macki’s 7-5 win at 285 pounds broke a 16-16 tie and lifted No. 16 South Dakota State past No. 18 Central Michigan 23-16 in Brookings. South Dakota State’s Seth Gross continued to put up big numbers, earning a 16-2 major decision at 133 pounds, while 174-pounder David Kocher notched a convincing 10-5 win over C.J. Brucki in one of the dual’s key swing bouts. South Dakota State improved to 4-2.

Navy dropped the first two bouts to Drexel, but stormed back to win seven of the next eight to power the Midshipmen to a 22-13 win over previously unbeaten Drexel. The Austin DeSanto watch is in full effect though, but he ONLY scored 13 points in a 13-6 win at 133. Solid wins checked in for Navy’s Nick Gil at 141 and Jadaen Bernstein at 174. By the way, Army-Navy football this weekend -- who you got?

Michigan State went on the road and got past Buffalo of the MAC 17-16 on criteria three. True freshman RayVon Foley notched the biggest individual victory for the Spartans, an 8-6 victory in sudden victory over NCAA qualifier Kyle Akins at 125 pounds. Two major decisions were also key as Michigan State did lose a team point during the course of the dual. Overall, it was total match points that gave the Spartans the W.

Fresno State put 3,700 fans in the seats on Friday night, but CSU Bakersfield won eight of the 10 matches as the Central Valley wrestling rivalry was rekindled.

Sacred Heart won its first dual of the John Clark era, topping undermanned American International, a Division II school, 50-6. Eastern Michigan beat Cleveland State 29-13.

In Division II, 10th-ranked Ashland topped West Liberty 24-13. Back to back falls in the middle by Bret Romanzak and Christian Price gave the Eagles some breathing room and wins by Tristen Wirich and Luke Cramer finished the dual off. Coker beat Emmanuel 21-11 in an ECAC matchup. Coker won the last four weight classes to earn the win over the Lions, who are actually searching for a head coach at the moment.

Top-ranked Warburg, at least top-ranked for now, beat Cornell College 45-3. Eight of the nine victories were by bonus including falls by Bennen Doebel, Mike Ross and All-American Lance Evans.

Sixth-ranked Messiah cruised past in-state rival Gettysburg 38-3. This one always stings for Gettysburg head coach Andy Vogel, who wrestled at Messiah. Yeah, the Falcons are pretty good typically.

Mustache power was apparently the key for Heidelberg to knock off John Carroll 22-16 in Division III. Heidelberg, which if you may remember from the first editions of Short Time, is the STUDENT PRINCES. Wins by Patrick Brown, Tyler Hammack and Christan Climer at the upper weights gave Heidelberg 13 key points and the come-from-behind victory. Hammack earned the dual’s only fall in 92 seconds.

No. 17 UW-La Crosse thumped Luther 34-4. Keep an eye on La Crosse 125-pounder Zach Villareal. He’s off to a real solid start . 14-0 with 11 bonus victories and eight falls. Illinois kid, contender.

Mixing things up between divisions, we saw Division II Limestone get past a scrappy Southeastern University squad 21-16. Northwest Kansas Tech from the NJCAA upended NAIA Concordia of Nebraska 23-21. Cloud County won its first dual in program history with a 40-18 win over NAIA Central Christian.

Also in the junior college ranks, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M swept Labette and Northwest College in a tri-meet on Friday night. The Karstetter brothers had a good night, going 4-0 as they combined for four bonus victories -- two techs, a major and a fall. NEO topped Labette 51-6, while they topped Northwest 47-4. The lone win for Northwest? Yup, Nodir Safarav, the Uzbek import.

Senior Sendoff: NCAA Division I Championship Seniors   

Cache   

The Senior Sendoff for the senior All-Americans in NCAA Division I for 2020. This tradition started with Todd Hibbs and has been carried on throughout college wrestling national championships, most noticeably at the Division I championships. It’s been present at D1, D2, D3 and the NAIA over the years, but this year, the three NCAA divisional championships and the NAIA women’s invitational didn’t get the chance to see its seniors compete for medals.

The Senior Sendoff is the work of the PA announcers from those championships - Jason Bryant, Bryan Hazard, Dort Mayabb, Brian Zins, John Peterson, Kat Balch and Sandy Stevens.

 

Today, Division I.

Short Time Wrestling Podcast: Episode 606 - June 7, 2020


          

Short Time Shots - November 15, 2017   

Cache   

Hey wrestling fans, it’s a Short Time wrestling minute giving you a quick breakdown of the happenings on the mats from November 15, 2017. I’m Jason Bryant and I like the movie Better off Dead.

This was the format that originally started Short Time, but now I’m bringing it back. Maybe not every single day, but each morning when I can, I’m going to rock out some notable things you should be paying attention to in college wrestling. Or just wrestling in general.

First, we start with the Ladies as second-ranked Campbellsville saw its senior night be a success as the Tigers knocked off the University of the Cumberlands 31-12. The Tigers are now 10-0 on the season.

A few notables in Division III, first in a Keystone State battle, Elizabethtown upended #14 York College of Pennsylvania 22-19. The match came down to heavyweight where Erik Ekstein’s takedown with 19 seconds to go broke a 1-1 tie and gave him and the E-Town Blue Jays the win. A big E-Town victory came at 149 pounds where Joe Ghione topped All-American Gregory Warner 7-4.

Also in Division III, Joe Norton’s North Central Cardinals knocked off #18 Augustana College 24-15, spoiling the debut of new Vikings head coach Tony Willaert. Also, this is the Augustana in Illinois. The one in South Dakota is now Augustana UNIVERSITY. They both … are still the Vikings.

A pair of top-ranked teams also cruised. Keeping it in Division III, Warburg won its 198th Iowa Conference Dual in a row in beating the Storm of Simpson 38-10. McKendree, #1 in Division II, pounded NAIA Missouri Baptist 42-6.

And speaking of the NAIA, Grand View is ranked #1 for the 40th straight week. Yes, 4-0.

Penn State Behrend, a brand new Division III program in Erie, dropped its opener 23-21 to Thiel College on Wednesday.

And the annual outdoor dual between Division II Belmont Abbey and NAIA St. Andrews went the way of Belmont Abbey 33-12 on Wednesday afternoon. The Crusaders won seven out of 10 to cruise … get it … to the win.
