Mizzou wins MAC Wrestling Tournament, Missouri State wins Men's Swimming & Diving Championship.

Went to the MAC home page -  When I saw the headlines I at first thought I musta made a typo in the Google search box...................

Missouri edged Northern Iowa with Old Dominion third in the MAC wrestling tournament. Ohio was the top actual MAC member in fourth place. Cody Walters and Jeremy Johnson won Individual titles for the Bobcats.

The program is moving up, which is good news, but OHIO was  picked to win the conference so a 4th place finish has to be disappointing.

The new MAC is a totally different animal than the old one. Missouri and Northen Iowa have fielded top 25 teams for years and Old Dominion has risen as of late. On paper if the old MAC were still in tact OU would have likely won the title this year. One thing the new entries have done is put more pressure on the rest of the league to keep up or get left behind.
 
OU has stepped up in recruiting and performance and finishing strong in the league tournament behind Missouri who is ranked 9th in this weeks poll and Northern Iowa ranked 10th in the nation is commendable.The Bobcats who are ranked 24th now are 4 spots higher than Old Dominion at 28 who finished ahead of them in the MAC. 

Match results drive the rankings for the most part but part of where you get ranked is because of expectations of individuals to place in the NCAA championships. ODU beat OU in a dual match and finished ahead of them in the conference tournament but OU is ranked ahead of them going into the nationals. Most voters see OU with 2 returning All Americans and 2 more potential All Americans and give them a better shot at team placement than Old Dominion. If the Bobcats were fortunate enough to place 4 at nationals they would likely finish near the top 10.

The NCAA selection commitee picked Bobcat 149 pounder Tywan Claxton as a wild card entry into the NCAA championships next weekend. He will join automatic qualifiers Spartak Chino 157, Harrison Hightower 165, Cody Walters 174, Phil Wellington 197 and Jeremy Johnson 285 at nationals in Oklahoma City. This represents the most championship qualifiers ever under current coach Joel Greenlee.

question: is wildcard entry in wrestling like an at-large bid in basketball? I was always a basketball guy but my son seems to be a wrestling type so I must learn these things.

The only real difference between basketball and wrestling national qualifiers is in basketball you technically only have one automatic qualifier per conference which is the tournament champion. All the rest are selected even though you pretty much know going in that each conference will get X amount of selectees.

In wrestling each conference knows how many guaranteed qualifiers there will be overall and in each weight class. Then after the league tournaments are finished and the AQs are set a commitee meets to select the last 40 individuals to fill in the 33 man brackets in the 10 weight classes. OU had 5 automatic qualifiers that were guaranteed by their tournament placement and their 6th was a selection commitee pick.

The MAC had the 3rd most AQs with 41 behind only the BIG with 74 and the EIWA with 47. The MAC also got 2 additional qualifiers from the commitee selections to total 43.

Ohio wrestlers went 2-4 in the first round today with the wins by the biggest wrestlers. Jeremy Johnson (285) won 4-1 and Phil Wellington (197) won 6-5. Cody Walters (174) lost in the first tiebreaker, 9-6. Tywan Claxton (149) gave a good match to the No. 4 seed and lost 3-1. The other two matches were not as close, one a pin and the other an 11-0 major decision.

Johnson beat the guy from Michigan to assure a national place, his second straight year as an All-American and his 142nd career victory to become first in school history. He lost the following match last night and was to wrestle for seventh this morning. I haven't heard how that went.

Yesterday Mizzu won the NCWA National Duals over #1 Iowa.

The announers made it a point to say that Mizzu wrestles out of the MAC.

The MAC does seem to be a stayover conference for major programs who are in conferences that do not sponsor certain sports. If Mizzou wins the NCAA title this year I guess we can claim them over the SEC?
