Earl just posted some great numbers looking at the past 10 years of NCAA wrestling. A lot to take in, so I thought I would distill it a bit into what that looks like on average.

So in a typical year:

- PSU has 3 champs
- tOSU, Cornell, and Okie St all crown a champ
- 2 champs are wearing either Iowa, Mizzou, Illinois or Minny singlets
- 2 champs come from the field (with NC State the leader with one every 3 years)

- 5 of the champs are #1 seeds
- 9 of the champs are seeded top 3
- 6 of the champs come from the B1G
- 1 champ will have transferred from another school
- 2 of the champs will hail from PA, 2 more will come from OH or NJ

- PSU has 4 finalists
- tOSU, Iowa, Cornell, and Okie State combined put 6 guys in the finals
- The other half of the finalists come from the field

- PSU has 6 AAs
- Iowa has 5 or 6 AAs
- Okie St has 5 AAs
- tOSU & Cornell have 4 or 5 AAs

- the B1G has as many AAs as the next four conferences combined
- one out of every 6 AAs calls PA their home state
- despite the popularity of wrestling internationally, there will only be 1 wrestler that AAs who was not born in the US. And he won't be a champ.

one of the more interesting stats that I found is the fact that since 2010 PSU and Iowa have pretty much the same number of AA's. PSU has 70 and Iowa has 69.... However, PSU has 46 that have reached the finals with 32 winning and Iowa has 23 with only 8 titles. That's coaching!
