    2011-2012

    Any guesses on how the lineup will look this year? or the changes to the schedule with Nebraska out of the Big 12s? or is it still too early to tell.

    I think wrestling is going to a home and away schedule so we will have 6 conference meets now instead of 4 like previous years.

    Also the conference tournament is no longer an auto-qualifying tournament. I don't think that will have a big impact though. My understanding is that just means the conference isn't guaranteed at least one wrestler in each weight will get to go to nationals. Also previously individuals earned a "slot" for the conference based on their results for the year. For example, if 3 people earned slots at 174 pounds, the top 3 finishers in the conference tournament would go, even if they were not one of the people who earned it based on their season results. Now the people who earn the slot get it no matter how they do at the conference tournament. It basically takes out the ability to get hot in the tournament and make nationals even with a mediocre season.

    Somebody can jump in and correct me if I'm wrong about all this.

    1st part is right, champion is not an auto qualifer. But that last part is wrong. Still the same as in the past. If 3 get automatic bids at 174, the top 3 go no matter who they are.

    As far as the lineup
    125 - Finch
    133 - ?????
    141 - Goettl, Mayfield
    149 - Weatherman or Cozart
    157 - Moreno
    165 - Sorenson
    174 - Spangler
    184 - Ward, Shafer
    197 - Gadsen
    Hwt - Gibson

    Simonson is out part or all season because of knee surgery and Gadsen is out until the Iowa dual because of shoulder.
    At 133 - Schlosser is trying to get in because of grades, maybe Cash or another true frosh.

    Thanks for correcting me. It will be interesting to see how often we don't get an automatic qualifier at a weight.

    Re: 2011-2012

    Here is the possible Okie State lineup
    125-Jon Morrison
    133-Jordan Oliver
    141-Josh Kindig
    149-Jamal Parks
    157-Albert White/Steven Swan?
    165-Dallas Bailey
    174-Mike Benefiel
    184-Chris Perry
    197-Cayle Byers
    285-Alan "Z" Gelogaev

    That will be very tough and possible 10 auto qualifers there

    Maybe the kid from Hawaii can step in immediately at 133??? I know he's raw but his videos show a lot of talent and quickness, although he gets out of position quite often which he won't be able to do at this level.
