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.

I am going to ask this question for the 20+ time:  Is the UTC Wrestling program fully funded (9.9) with wrestling scholarships?  I always get the “I don’t know or I think so but I am not sure”

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.

How many of the people on the forum would have the answer and could be 100% sure the answer they give is correct (meaning they have seen the numbers for themselves)?  Have to believe that is a very very small percentage and I doubt they would be inclined to share.

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.
