(NCAA)   Can Penn State make it a four-peat (and eight of the last nine)? Or will some other college step up and strip the Nittany Lions of their mat superiority? It's the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships live from Pittsburgh at 7 PM ET on ESPN   (ncaa.com) divider line

Sorry to break this to you Subs but Penn St cliched the team title in the wrestle-backs. I'll be watching though.

As long as the rhythmic slapping stays on the mat.

I mean, it's tough to not pull for one of the BigTen state schools (MSU, OSU, and PSU are all in the Final Four).

That kid from Okie Stat should have been rung up for stalling way before now.

Man this kid from Rutgers is getting screwed

Penn St continues to dominate while their opponents flail their arms in frustration. So funny to watch year after year after year...

I can't wait to see Mehki Lewis smash Cenzo. That'll be the highlight of my day...

And I just bought a house two hours ago!

Why does wrestling create such dominance for specific programs? Oklahoma State, Iowa and now Penn State have each had decades as the top team.

Is it simply recruiting depth?

Look at the coaches of those teams. Pretty lofty names with remarkable wrestling careers themselves. Having one of the greatest American wrestlers in history showing up at your door and saying he can teach you to be great has a powerful pull.

Regarding your depth question, it matters greatly. Everyday in practice they are competing against NCAA champions and All American wrestlers. When you're wrestling #1 talent everyday it's only going to make you better.

Rutgers gets their 1st national champion in forever, and then picks up a 2nd one to boot!  Their coach picks up the tournament coach of the year award, a guy who was hired away from a HIGH SCHOOL and when the program started, he was hosting meets for tens of fans.  Now the program outdraws men's basketball and has kept NJ talent home.  NJ has a lot of wrestling talent and is proof that if Rutgers can just keep their kids from fleeing out of state, in any sport, they'll be a force to be reckoned with.  Sleeping giant indeed.

Wow, I had no idea there were so many wrestling fans on Fark, wish I would've found this thread yesterday.

Same here.  There is a pretty good facebook group called "wrestlers only" that had some good discussion going on during the tournament.
