7 Big Stories from the Week in College Wrestling (11/28/2022)

The first month of the wrestling season is basically over. I always say that it flies by when you're not actually going through practices, cutting weight, and fighting off injuries. The Thanksgiving holiday led to a minuscule schedule, but even so, we still found a way to bring you "7 Big Stories from the Week in College Wrestling." Actually, this let us touch on every single dual meet (there were only three).

Max Murin Shines

For decades, the Iowa Hawkeyes have had some of the most iconic figures in our sport don a black singlet. As of late, Spencer Lee definitely fits the bill. Not quite on the same level, but still memorable are teammates Austin DeSanto, Jaydin Eierman, Alex Marinelli, and Michael Kemerer. Each finished their career with at least three All-American honors. Often overlooked in such a star-studded lineup has been stalwart Max Murin. Murin has put together a respectable 58-23 record and has ended his season in the Round of 12 for the last three NCAA tournaments.

Even as he has been lost in the shuffle of some talented teams, Murin was front-and-center on Saturday. Anyone who broke down the Hawkeyes dual with #15 Penn probably pointed to #6 Murin's 149 lb match with #10 Doug Zapf as a toss-up that could end up deciding the entire dual. Without Lee, Brody Teske, and Real Woods, Penn had a chance to shock the Hawks.

For the last decade and a half, the Hawkeyes have under performed. There's 1 national champ out of the 5 you named and they all got extra years to get it done. That 1 champ would win 4 titles regardless of where he went. Teske and Woods are transfers late in their careers and, like Murin, won't win a national title because their opponents get better coaching.

Murin's won 71% of his matches. 75% is considered average, his results are below average.

@M SMART... not sure what you are smoking, but where do you get the dumb idea that a 75% win percentage is average? I think watching Iowa for the last 30 years has jaded your view of "average."

Yes, Mr. Smart---you are not wrong: its worth noting that without these transfers iowa would be struggling to even get a trophy this year---3 blood round finishes? kind of translates to "not able to get the job done" to most--and in last years blood round Milner decimated him

Winning 71% of your matches leads to a season ending in the Round of 12, which has happened to him every year. 7 out of 10 is considered average except in baseball. We have excellent weed available daily in AZ.
