D1 NCAA Qualifiers from Illinois

Conference tournaments are finished and we can now see who actually qualified for the NCAA tournament and who is on the outside looking in hoping for an at large bid.

Automatic NCAA Qualifiers:
Travis Piotrowski-Illinois (125)
Dylan Duncan-Illinois (133)
Emery Parker-Illinois (184)
Elijah Oliver-Indiana (125)
Jacob Warner-Iowa (197)
Austin Gomez-Iowa State (133)
Dack Punke-Missouri (125)
Nic Gil-Navy (141)
Isaiah White-Nebraska (165)
Eric Schultz-Nebraska (197)
Austin O'Connor-North Carolina (149)
Josh Alber-Northern Iowa (141)
Michael McGhee-Old Dominion (125)
Larry Early-Old Dominion (157)
Patrick Brucki-Princeton (197)
Christian Brunner-Purdue (197)
Gabe Townsell-Stanford (125)
Nathan Traxler-Stanford (197)

Looking to receive an at large bid:
Peter Ogunsanya-Army (149)
Kyle Akins-Buffalo (125)
Eric Barone-Illinois (157)
Joey Gunther-Illinois (165)
Cameron Caffey-Michigan State (184)
Shayne Oster-Northwestern (149)
Tim Young-Old Dominion (197)
Louie Hayes-Virginia (133)
Jake Keating-Virginia (157)

I say we end up with 22 NCAA Qualifiers this season with Barone, Gunther, Caffey, and Oster receiving At-Large bids. Still think we end the season with 5 All-Americans in Brucki, Warner, O'Connor, White, and Parker.

Thanks for the info. I hope you're right. Piotrowski may make AA if he gets a good draw and the right matchups. You never know.

For all you psychos that keep sucking your kids down look and see about 1/3 of these kids are 197.

Hayes

Looks like Hayes went 0-2 at the ACC tourney. Looking at the Virginia site he was 31-8 at 125 last year and NCAA quarterfinalist. This year 18-11 at 133. Was it the bump up in weight that was the difference?

Huh?

Cutting weight (or not) and about 1/3 of qualifiers from IL being at 197 have as much to do with each other as headgear and deodorant.

If there were a bunch of qualifiers at 125 would that mean that most wrestlers weren’t cutting enough weight??

Yes, it's due to the bump up. He was forced up by 17-0 Jack Mueller coming down in weight to 125. He had wins this year over guys who qualified for nationals and was borderline top 10 at 125. 133 is also a much deeper, tougher weight.

He was a Twister for a lot longer than he lived in TN. I don't mind the pot shots at the successful teams. It comes with the territory and at times is amusing. On the other hand if you want any credibility at least do a little homework.
