Don’t think I’ll be using that AirPod/Backpack Studio connection
in the future, especially in the garage. My wife took slight
exception to the note about the noise, but after nine and a half
years of marriage, I still like to poke a little fun. I’m Jason
Bryant, and this is Short Time Shots, a mostly daily look at the
scores and more from around the world of wrestling. Anyone else
hate Comcast? Not going down that rabbit hole.
- No Division I action, but enough to chat about to make you want
to order a 20-piece Chicken McNugget meal at 3:29 a.m. and ask them
to put every sauce in the bag! Wait, sorry, flashbacks. And yes, I
knew that in 2005, McDonalds on Columbia Avenue in Lancaster, PA
started serving breakfast at 3:30 a.m. There’s only one way to
discover that - the hard way.m
- I’ll start in D3, where third-ranked Wartburg
remembered its fallen three-time national champion Kenny
“Kennfucios” Anderson on Wednesday and then pounded Simpson
(Iowa) 47-3. Kris Rumph, the guy who beat Iowa’s Gavin
Teasdale over the weekend, yeah, he won by fall at 133. The win ran
Wartburg’s win streak in the American Rivers Conference is now
- St. Cloud State, which should be ranked
No. 1 when the next Division II rankings come out, extended its win
streak to 52 in a row and its conference dual win streak to 69 in a
row after shutting out Southwest Minnesota State
42-0 at Halenbeck Hall in St. Cloud. Top-ranked James Barzowski
topped Nathan Moore 10-3 at 157 pounds.
- Shippensburg knocked off Division III
Waynesburg 35-12. The Red Raiders notched three
falls, with the fastest coming from DeAndre Reed at 149 in 1:02.
Northern State beat its Division III opponent,
Concordia-Moorhead, 24-15 just across the Red
River in Moorhead, Minnesota. Billy Holtan, son of longtime Mat
Talk Podcast Network patron Bill Holton, picked up a major decision
at 165 pounds in the Wolves’ winning effort. Going back to PA,
Kutztown defeated Millersville
24-13. Moving south, Division II Belmont Abbey
beat NAIA Bluefield 34-11 and
Coker beat Truett McConnell
- Division III Scranton won six bouts to knock
off Division II East Stroudsburg 24-15 to win a
Dundie. Don’t know what that is? That’s what she said. In keeping
it D3, UW-La Crosse beat UW-Eau
Claire 25-12 and UW-Whitewater beat
UW-Platteville 27-12. Castleton
beat Norwich 31-17 in New England. In the NAIA,
Wayland Baptist beat Central
Christian 45-12, Briar Cliff beat
Northwestern (Iowa) 24-16. Lourdes beat Division
III Defiance 29-14. I really should come up with
more puns with Defiance.
- On the women’s side, Oklahoma City beat
Texas Wesleyan 41-7 with Cierra Foster picking up
a fall at 143 pounds in just 20 seconds.

Community Fund where over 91 percent of all money goes directly to
research doctors and other cancer related projects.
TakeDown Cancer is an all volunteer group with no paid salaries.

Notables on the Docket for November 20:
- Pretty solid schedule across the board on November 20. In
Division I, Missouri hosts Division II Central Missouri and NAIA
Missouri Valley, while a pair of teams from out west head east.
Oregon State heads to George Mason, while Air Force will face
Hofstra. In Division II, a pair of newer programs will hook up as
Urbana will face Bellarmine. In D3, we’ve got Manchester heading to
Adrian, an all-Iowa tilt as Central faces Coe, while up in
Wisconsin, UW-Stevens Point will face UW-Oshkosh.
- A pretty solid slate of duals in the NAIA, with Corban facing
Simpson and Southern Oregon in a tri-meet, while Life Pacific will
host Arizona Christian. Vanguard will also be in the house facing
Arizona Christian. That’s a tri with three teams in the west all
started in the past two years. Warner Pacific is at Montana
State-Northern, Central Methodist heads to Iowa for a men’s and
women’s double dip with Grand View. Grand View trying to extend its
win streak to 79. The Vikings currently hold the second longest win
streak in college wrestling history. If the math is right, the Vi
kings won’t break the record of 92 this season. Doane is at
Midland, Benedictine is at St. Mary and who knows what the heck is
going on at Lindenwood-Belleville. Last I’d heard was the school
was going to consolidate its sports with Lindewood’s main campus in
Missouri. The women’s roster and coaching staff hasn’t been
updated, yet the women are supposed to face MacMurray, while the
men are allegedly facing off with Calumet College of St.
- Keeping with the women’s schedule, Limestone heads to King,
Adrian is at Tiffin, Simpson is also up at Southern Oregon with the
men and Midland heads west to face Colorado Mesa.
- Wyatt Henson, the son of Sammie Henson and a 2021 Iowa commit,
was reportedly ruled ineligible for the postseason by the WPIAL,
which is essentially the athletic association for Western PA.
Henson started out at Waynesburg Central while his dad was the head
coach a short distance away in Morgantown, West Virginia at WVU.
IAwrestle posted about it, while PA Power is following
- Craig Sesker follows up on the story Trackwrestling posted
yesterday, in which he believes freestyle should replace folkstyle.
He writes this on The Predicament.
- Earlier this week, I posted about Anthony Ashnault and Nick
Suriano of Rutgers getting the nod to attend the
White House as NCAA Collegiate Champions Day. TheMat.com’s Gary
Abbott confirms Penn State’s team championship as well as
individual titlists Yianni Diakomihalis of Cornell, Drew Foster of
Northern Iowa and Mekhi Lewis of Virginia Tech will also be in
attendance. Penn State will be represented by Jason Nolf, Bo
Nickal, Nick Nevills and Mason Manville along with Senior Associate
AD Rick Kaluza. I say again, I don’t care about your politics.
- Everyone’s favorite podcasting wrestling teenagers, Sam Herring
and Jude Swisher, have added
Mason Beckman to the Home Mat Advantage team. Lucky for
Beckman, he can still pass as 15.
- Lots of conference awards being named, and again, they’re in
the newsletter, but not all here. One that will be here today is
from the South Atlantic Conference Carolinas, which is a hybrid
collection of wrestling schools in those two conferences. Mount
Olive, a first year program led by past Purdue All-American Jake
had its first award winner as Hayden Waddell was honored as the
Wrestler of the Week after winning the Star City Classic last
- Flowrestling is looking ahead to Iowa-Iowa State by looking
back at the
history of the series, giving us
six reasons to watch AND trying to piss off Hawkeye fans by
giving you the way
Iowa State can win the dual.
- After hearing about Quant Wrestling on yesterday’s On The Mat,
Trackwrestling drops a statistical breakdown by
Quant Wrestling that breaks down various scoring attacks and
analytics from the 2019 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.
Stat nerds should love it.
