NCAA Wrestling Championships (Day 1)

NCAA Wrestling starts their Championships today with action on EIGHT mats

As if the day was not busy enough with the NCAA Basketball Tournament kicking off (and women's swimming as well, where Mizzou is represented), but the NCAA Wrestling Championships start this morning at 11am (central) from Oklahoma City. ESPN has (once again) stepped up their coverage of the three-day event, and for the first time, there will be Day 1 coverage on ESPNU (as well as ESPN3). Both Session I and II will get at least three and a half hours of air apiece, making it a tremendous day to generate a blister on your remote thumb.

BST and I will do our best to keep things updated in this thread for today, and we will likely generate a new one tomorrow. From an action standpoint, today is all about positioning. You want to keep as many wrestlers out of the wrestlebacks as you can, since that is a GRUELING run tomorrow (when you can wrestle up to four times in wrestlebacks to stay alive). More on that as we go, but let's start you all off with a good set of links:
