With so much going on, the culmination of the 2010-2011 NCAA Wrestling season has arrived, to be completely overshadowed by other season-ending tournaments. The Mizzou Tigers are sending a team-record NINE grapplers to the City of Brotherly Love (with only Nick Gregoris at 157 not making the trip). Strangely, with the deepest group of wrestlers from a numbers standpoint, not much is thought of the Tigers' chances of finishing highly in the team competitiion, which is likely to be a great battle between Iowa, Cornell and Penn State. Nevertheless, the Tigers have some exciting people in the mix who are capable of some great finishes, and I will do my best (and invite others) to keep our community up to date on their progress.
