    Update on Qualifier next year

    This was posted on Okla State website after their banquet by oberebo

    Just back from the banquet. It was great for the wrestlers. John Morrison won the most improved wrestler award. Jordan won most valuable wrestler and John introduced all of the wrestlers,starters and backups and said good words about all. J.Carl emceed the banquet and did a great job. Big news which John only alluded to at the end of the banquet was that in addition to the Big 12 tournament next year we will be part of a 16 team qualifier next year which will include most of the teams in the pac10 and western Athletic conference including Arizona State, Boise State,Wyoming, north and south Dakota state, Utah Valley and several others. This is great news in my opinion. I think the details are still being worked out but John said he wanted this qualifier to have as its first host, Oklahoma State University so we will get to see a 16 team tournament in Stillwater next year.

    Yes and not on the same weekend. 16 team tourney would be a 2 day tourney and Big 12 tourney would be scheduled a different weekend.

    Re: Update on Qualifier next year

    Posted by ISU Chip on Cyclone Report

    16 would actually be everyone in those three leagues.

    Pac-12 (6): Arizona St, Boise, Cal Poly, CS Bakersfield, Oregon St, Stanford
    WWC (6): Air Force, NDSU, N. Colorado, SDSU, Utah Valley, Wyoming
    Big 12 (4): Iowa State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, West Virginia

    That's a full two-day event. Much more worthwhile than the abomination that happened this year.

    Using 2013 numbers, there would be 56 auto bids for such an event:
    125 - 6
    133 - 5
    141 - 4
    149 - 7
    157 - 6
    165 - 5
    174 - 6
    184 - 6
    197 - 5
    HWT - 6

    Re: Update on Qualifier next year

    I definitely think it is the direction that we need to go and the Big 12 can keep to itself and not have part members in certain sports

    Re: Update on Qualifier next year

    this could be interesting. WV is the only school East of the Mississippi, so they might not like the travel costs.

    But this sets up like the Semifinals/Bowl Games for BCS Football.

    I would not mind seeing a good sized tournament like this at a set location each year (Salt Lake City, Denver, etc). Having like 4 big qualifying tournaments could lead to more exposure for the sport, which makes people more money.


    Kinda sets up like high school wrestling too. Have a conference tournament one weekend and then have districts later. Might see a couple familiar teams but also teams you wouldn't normally wrestle.

    Re: Update on Qualifier next year

    This will be a great event to get experience wrestling teams we don't often compete against.
