    How can a team win 15 of 30 bouts against the #1, #12 and #15 teams in the country and not get any votes for the top 20? Dual meet scores in wrestling are so unrepresentative of a team’s performance against the opposition. The Lehigh team has a lot of talent and if they can stay healthy should be in position to make some real noise come March.

    Shows the impossibility of accurately ranking teams in a sport that is at its base an individual one. I .find I look more at individual rankings

    Polls are nothing more than opinion. We will find out how good we really are in March. However, do not forget that we are 1-3 and the loss to Bucknell was highly damaging in the polls.

    Well Rich, the Northeast Duals have spoken. Lehigh goes 3-0 with wins over Central Michigan, Virginia and Columbia. Perhpas the polls will recognize this accomplishment.

    Great timing, just reading recap. :) Yeah,guess we’ll get a boost in ratings. To me most impressive item was performance of upper wgts. Heck, we may yet be a good dual squad.

    Now comes the moment of dread that seems to hang every year…and especially this year with such a young team—will the team be taking any academic hits? Wrestling is such a demanding sport requiring more mental toughness than the others imo. The grueling practices, cutting and maintaining weight and then also keeping mental focus on studies. Discipline. Hopefully a few of our wounded are back up in time for Cornell on 1/12.
