    Quick Reactions from the 2023 CKLV Invitational

    Much was made about how difficult and deep this tournament was. Without hyperbole, it’s accurate to say it was the best regular-season collegiate tournament since perhaps the 2014 Southern Scuffle. I discussed this with the FloWrestling personnel and we came up with the 2014 tournament as the best comparison.  That tournament featured the teams that would end up finishing top-three at the NCAA Tournament that same season. Penn State, Minnesota, and Oklahoma State. That tournament may have had more top-end star power; with three eventual NCAA champions; however, this field was likely deeper. 

    An example of this is the 184 lb weight class that had four All-Americans miss the podium. 

    Iowa State won the tournament and finished with seven medalists (1 champion and 2 runner’s-up).
