I-mar can hold his head high after these 3 matches with one of the greatest freestyle wrestlers the USA has produced. He fought Burroughs toe to toe and looked like he belonged on that stage. He'll...

It would be poetic for I-Mar to beat Burroughs, the man who kept Poeta from 2 NCAA titles.

I-mar's style just seems to baffle Nolf. Nolf can't get his offense going at all. He should probably take lessons from Vincenzo Joseph, who had I-mar's number with that inside trip.

No question there was something going on with him last year. Whatever it was, I hope it's in the past. He has too much talent to wrestle as poorly as he did. Same with Mike Carr. He was not...

Based upon the results of the freestyle tournament, it looks more and more like your lineup is more realistic than mine. Don't have the established star power that we have had in the past, but it's...

Good analysis overall, Chief. Given the gaping hole at 285, I don't believe Heffernan will have the luxury of redshirting Luffman. Besides 285, someone will have to step up big at 149, 174,184 and...

I hope you are right about things being better with the present staff. In my opinion, they will rise and fall on the shoulders of Poeta and the influence of the IRTC.

He's not a troll just because he is pointing out what has been obvious to most of us, that Illinois has had great difficulty keeping its top in-state talent. There has to be a reason for...

Now that the "excitement" is over, does anyone want to take a shot at the line up for this coming year?

My thoughts are (assuming no redshirts or some moving up in weight):
