    WIN Preseason Rankings

    Tied for 27th with Boston U and Buffalo! Year 3 needs to bring some unexpected results for the Cyclone Wrestling team. It is unreal to live in Virginia and see Maryland, Tech and UVA all ranked ahead of my Cyclones. I don't think I ever read in the paper or see TV coverage of these wrestling programs and thought Tech and UVA were up and coming, not ahead of my Cyclones!

    We're still in the building phase, but I'll be surprised if we're that bad.

    I think we'll be in the top 15 by X-mas. We'll have a very young team. The talent is there for a top 10 team they just have to prove it on the mat.

    I hope you two are right. Because starts like 27th are a far cry from where we used to be.

    Re: WIN Preseason Rankings

    We do not get any love on potential from the ranking guys. Many have Sorenson behind Toal of Missouri and a few others the Sorenson beat last year. Iowa's unproven wrestlers get ranked higher because its Iowa. Iowa State has to prove it. I think Finch, Moreno, Sorenson, Spangler, Ward/Boaz Beard, Gadsen all have a good chance to AA. I won't rule out Gibson and Cozart/Weatherman either. Many did not have Reader AA last year, if they did it was 7-8th place. I knew how good he was. Virginia Tech might be a good dual, but don't think Maryland or Virginia would compete against the Cyclones this year. That's why we wrestle the matches. I would rather be the surprise than the disappointment.

    Re: WIN Preseason Rankings

    Yeah, we have a lot of unproven guys as well as Sorenson ranked behind people he beat. I think the rankings will change a lot once the season starts.

    Re: WIN Preseason Rankings

    Yep. He was at the Cyclone Wrestling Club tailgate against Iowa along with his good friend and high school classmate (from what I understand) Tyler Caldwell. He is enrolled at Iowa State and plans on wrestling. How's that for exciting news. 184 will have Jerome Ward, Boaz Beard, Cole Shafer and Phil Hawes battling for the starting spot.

    Wow, that's huge news. I thought he had the potential to be a 3 time AA before he left. What's his eligibility status?

    Re: WIN Preseason Rankings

    Redshirt Sophomore, I think. Not listed on roster yet. I think that is because this is in the process or just got done.
    Eligible immediately, from what I hear.

    Re: WIN Preseason Rankings

    I now feel good about all weights except 133/HW. If Gibson can show up, we may only have one give up class. I hope Beard stayed in shape, I think he is more talented than Shafer or Hawes, and has a much bigger tank than Ward.

    Re: WIN Preseason Rankings

    Interesting to still see Spangler listed at 165. It's been pretty much a given in most people's eyes that he would be at 174. If he's going to stay down and duke it out with Sorenson, that will be a battle, but it's going to leave us weaker than I expected at '74.

    Others worth noting....Mayfield at '41, Weatherman & Cozart both at '49, and Moreno at '57. All of these have been discussed, but it's good to see the "confirmation" here.

    I thought Ward would make the move to 197? He's listed there on the roster.

    Are you nuts? Reader's been perpetually ranked in the top 10 since he was a freshman and everyone expected him to content for, if not win, the national title.
