    Reading this article from WIN, they quoted Brands saying they are sending 22 wrestlers to Midlands, and 141, and 184 will be closer to settled after that.

    22 wrestlers! Most of I've heard of for Iowa was 17, the last two seasons I believe. Originally, I thought they capped it at 15 wrestlers per school. Has that cap been removed for Midlands? I'd love to see more individual participants from each of the schools.

    Here's what we have for team participants for Midlands:

    I'd like to see Moody at Midlands if he's healthy. He's better at Freestyle, but he just seems like a cool dude.

    I must say that I really like Cashman’s attitude. I think it’s great to see a guy embrace his role when he’s “not the guy” and view the opportunity ahead of him that in reality will be here before we know it.

    It seems most years Iowa has a number of guys nursing injuries or not 100% that miss Midlands. Good to see them fill out the brackets like this. ( 4 at 197!) Should be a lot of Iowa v Iowa matchups. Should be a good one.

    Excited as always for Midlands. But, not exactly blown away by the participating teams this year.

    I don't know if we would see Lee at Midlands with the qualifier being a week before. It'd be a lot cooler if he was there tho...

    With your profile pic I would expect “it would be a lot cooler” thrown in there. . One of my favorite movies. Ha

    I hope Lee qualifies quickly so he wrestles a full NCAA schedule.

    Lee’s never won a Midlands Championship correct? I bet it’s on his bucket list, however far down it may be.

    Come to think of it, he’s never won a Big Ten title either. He still has a lot to accomplish in his wrestling career .

    He’s competed in six college tournaments and only won two. Not impressed.

    He did win the UNI Open for his college debut before they pulled his shirt.

    honestly due to the fact IOWA has been for many years the only thing keeping the midlands tournament alive should be allowed as many participants they deem necessary.

    Quite a test for Cassioppi. #3 Stencel, #6 Hilger, #7 Heino, # 15 Lufkin, #16 Q. Miller, #20 Isley. Using wrestlestat rankings.

    Most days I don’t know what I had for breakfast that morning, as for Midlands, I’m just going off what the OP listed and hoping it’s so.

    Wins when it matters most. And when you consider he's wrestled most of his college career with a tweaked knee and won 2 NCAA titles I'd reconsider the unimpressed analogy. JMO

    Scuffle has been crap the past couple years and I think PSU is not even going this year. A few teams have been doing the South Beach Duals.

    Ahhhh you little snowflake you! I see what you did there. Be wise of you to not suggest any oranges ‘round these parts...I don’t care much about midlands beyond the individual matchups between hawks and how they help sort lineup questions. Nice little early tournament to sort things out a bit. Nothing less, nothing more. I think it would be more beneficial if the competition was stiff with figuring things out, personally.

    Lost big to Heino and Stencel last years Midlands. Would like to see a rematch vs one or both. Guessing it will be a lot better this time.

    My bad then. I didnt think someone with the street cred and legend status of him was serious but sometimes sarcasm on this board is taken seriously unlike the football board. I'll own it. Go Hawks.

    Focus people. Lee can come back to Midlands as a post grad. No need to hurry for that coveted title. Hell, Spencer if you are reading I will even corner you
