D1 NCAA Qualifiers from Illinois

Had a lot of past IHSA wrestlers qualify for the big dance in 2 weeks. Congrats to these men!

125.
Louie Hayes-Virginia (Fr.)
Elijah Oliver-Indiana (Jr.)
Travis Piotrowski-Illinois (So.)
Michael McGee-Old Dominion (Fr.)
Gabe Townsell-Stanford (So.)

133.
Dylan Duncan-Illinois (Fr.)
Jason Renteria-Nebraska (Fr.)

141.
Josh Alber-Northern Iowa (Jr.)
Vince Turk-Iowa (So.)
Nic Gil-Navy (Jr.)

165.
Isaiah White-Nebraska (So.)
Nate Higgins-SIUE (So.)

174.
Joey Gunther-Iowa (So.)
CJ Brucki-Central Michigan (Sr.)

184.
Emery Parker-Illinois (Jr.)
Ricky Robertson-Wisconsin (Sr.)
Kayne McCallum-Eastern Michigan (Jr.)
Bryce Gorman-Northern Illinois (Jr.)
Kordell Norfleet-Arizona State (Fr.)

197.
Christian Brunner-Purdue (So.)
Patrick Brucki-Princeton (Fr.)
Nathan Traxler-Stanford (Fr.)

IHSA wrestlers with a legitimate shot at an AT LARGE bid:
Kyle Akins-Buffalo (Jr.)
Joe Ariola-Buffalo (Sr.)
Jordan Ellingwood-Central Michigan (Sr.)
AJ Jaffe-Harvard (So.)
Kyle Langenderfer-Illinois (Sr.)
Eric Schultz-Nebraska (Fr.)
Alex Madrigal-Old Dominion (So.)
Kenan Carter-Old Dominion (So.)

I think Akins, Ellingwood, Jaffe, and Schultz will get in. Madrigal had a very good season but went 0-2 at conference.

IMO Akins and Jaffe got hosed. They should be in the field this year. This was my reaction seeing Barlow McGhee getting an at large bid

Yea, there are some Mizzou fans that are shocked.
Norstrem getting a bid over Akins is more of a travesty. 11-14 record.

IMO Jaffe not making it baffles me? Also if they are looking at records the Illini wrestles such a tough schedule in the BIG 10.

Sad to see Kyle end like this and you have to give Brian Murphy credit as he got that All American and had a great shot to be a 2x if not for his career ending injury.

And whats up with Wisoconsin coaching?

I see they still have that idiotic 33 man field, and I have yet to ever hear an explanation for it. 32 makes sense. 40 might make sense. 48 might make sense. 33 makes no sense.

3+3=6
6 = team points for a pin.
ergo, 33 wrestlers
