Mocs Wrestling Disappoints

14 Years since our last All American


Our 4 qualifiers this year went a combined 1-8. 


UTC wrestling at least used to win the SoCon more than any other team. We haven't won a title there in 7 years. 


Are we the joke of NCAA wrestling?

If you are going to bash an entire program at least get your facts correct.  It has not been 22 years since the last AA.

The topic itself bears a bigger discussion than I can give time to now but I would not say that they are the joke of NCAA wrestling.  I believe there are some other programs doing worse... that said I am sure that the coaching staff has expectations and a plan to improve.  I think the standard that UTC should be targeting from a support, recruiting, and developing is winning the SoCon but gaps to close there for sure.

My man John Mark Bentley with a All American. Back to Back for Millner. 3 kids from NC won there 1st round match for App St. I’m hoping JM will get more involved in recruiting TN. What kills these small schools is the number of scholarships they get to divide up.

By no one answering the question with regards to the University of Tennessee @ Chattanooga wrestling program having the full allotment of 9.9 wrestling scholarships I am going to assume that the program is not close to being fully funded.

I don’t believe App St is fully funded which makes it hard on the smaller programs.

I think UTC is headed in the right direction.  It's difficult to compete with the bigger programs on so many levels, but if St. Peters can do it in Basketball, UTC can do it in wrestling.  I'm sure the mindset of the coaches is to perform, evaluate, refine, perform, evaluate, refine over and over until they put out a program that everyone on Coach T can be proud of.

    • A problem could be issues between the Ayers' and the USJ administrator. He may not care as much as the coaches like. The Ayers' daughter is a star softball player. They will want to move to a program that has a strong softball program in addition to a strong basketball program.
    • I didn’t exactly ask the exact results of his matches.  I wanted to know the path he is on and @durdon explained it very well.  Not sure how my original post made you so upset.  I was an AA for Rutgers sometime within the last 5-10 years.  I choose not to reveal my identity because I am afraid you angry southerners might take this too far.  I apologize to anyone I offended but I was just trying to keep track of the past good TN wrestlers and help inform people what Jersey wrestling is really like, and yes Jersey is not the best place to live.  Which is why I moved to TN.  While we are on this topic what happened with the 2 baylor kids at wyoming?
    • They have trucks lined along the fence beside the home stands. When the team gets ready to run out the trucks rev up. The y do it throughout the game as well.
