Video Roundup: 2012 NCAA D1 Wrestling Championships


Hint: This guy does pretty well. Props: The Cornell Sun

Last night concluded the NCAA’s three day tournament for the 2012 D1 National Wrestling Championships in St. Louis, Missouri. Given the success that dominant wrestlers have had in mixed martial arts, it’s almost guaranteed you’ll be seeing a few of these guys in the cage at some point, so you might as well learn who last night’s big winners were. It’s MMA’s version of March Madness, without the annoying Hooter’s commercials (Unrelated, but why are you giving us that dejected look, Bellator?).

Perhaps the biggest winner from last night was Cornell’s Kyle Dake. The 157 pound Ivy League grappler became the first wrestler in NCAA history to win three national titles in three different weight classes, defeating Iowa’s Derek St. John, 4-1. Cornell would wind up finishing fourth in the team standings with 102.5 points, behind Iowa (107.5), Minnesota (117.5) and Penn State (142), who had already clinched the team title before last night’s finals.

Wow, this is an awesome article! Iowa represent! I'm really suprised Penn State pulled the overall win on us.

Was there last night. Taylor from Penn St. is going to be an Olympic Champ one day. Expect him to be a 3x NCAA champ by the time his career is winding down. Watch for the name Honeycut in MMA. He went to the same high school as Koschek and Maynard and is going to start training with Kos immediately.
