    FOUR CYCLONES EARN AUTOMATIC BIDS TO NCAA WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIP

    AMES, Iowa Four Iowa State wrestlers have earned automatic berths to the NCAA Championship through the first session of the Big 12 Wrestling Championships Saturday at Hilton Coliseum. Cyclone 174-pounder Jon Reader improved his record to 33-0 with a 14-6 major decision over Jeff James of Oklahoma. At 197-pounds, third-seeded Jerome Ward of Iowa State beat second-seeded Andy Johnson of Nebraska, 3-1 to also advance to the finals.
    After the first session, Oklahoma State is the team leader with 61 points, followed by Oklahoma (59.5), Missouri (54), Nebraska (40.5) and Iowa State with 27 points. Iowa State 184-pounder Cole Shafter and heavyweight Kyle Simonson finished fourth and earned automatic qualifying berths for the NCAA meet March 17-19 in Philadelphia, Pa.
    Finals begin at 7 p.m.

    Certainly losing Sorenson to the elbow injury hurts us, but it's still alarming to "clinch" last place in a conference meet that we're hosting.
    I hope JP is looking into things with wrestling. We're a proud program, and this should not be happening.

    Well nationals are in Pennsylvania, so JP should be able to thank Cael and all he has done for and to the program in person.

    Looking into what exactly? The team has far outperformed pre-season expectations, and most of the guys on the team wrestled at or above their seeding today. We avenged a lot of losses from earlier in the season this morning.

    The only guy on the team that underperformed today was Drioun.

    Without Cael, Reader wouldn't be here. Then where would we be?

    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I thought there were 5 auto bids at 165. Shouldn't we have gotten Spangler in based on that? I am somewhat confused. Also, I would be surprised if Sorenson doesn't receive an at-large bid if he is healthy.

    Its more the problem if Cael had stayed, you would also have guys like Dan Taylor and Andrew Long on the team, and that would be a huge boost.

    We had 4 guys wrestle above their seeds 4 wrestle to their seed and only 2 below. What needs to be looked at? We just don't have the bodies this year. KJ needs 2 more years. I think he has done very well with what he has to work with. If you have a clue about the team you know what kind of tallent he has red shirting and have higher expectations when he gets a squad of his guys in.

    Sorenson didn't compete today so he can't go to the NCAAs. Also, since he couldn't compete, the B12 only has 4 automatic qualifiers.

    Brackets only indicate that there are only four automatic qualifiers from the 165 bracket...

    Nothing to brag about. Reader is legit, of course. The rest are just going to natls to fill out a bracket. No chance to do anything. Jackson is on the hot seat.

    Apparently with Sorenson out his auto qualifier was lost. Which sucks because that bracket was loaded, and I am not sure if Spangler has had enough matches for the committee to think he deserves a wild card berth.

    Editing: Also, since Sorenson's absence is going to cost us a lot of team points in Philly. So for everyone who just looks at the scores and then starts posts about how the sky is falling... we just lost a likely All American due to injury. This will prevent us from scoring in the top ten this year. We know this, and it won't be a "giant disappointment and how could ISU not be in the top three and KJ should be fired" event.

    Reader and Ward will score us points, and Shafer/Simonson will likely win a match or two, but one of our big guns is hurt.

    You don't think Ward is competitive? Do you even follow wrestling?

    Jackson is about as far from the hot seat as possible. This team has overperformed, and as the results show, he had them ready to go today.

    Drioun underperformed. One guy out of 10.
