NCAA Wrestling Championships

Escobedo takes 3rd at NCAAs

·

Angel Escobedo will go down as one of the greatest wrestlers in IU history. The senior wanted nothing more than to establish that with a second national title to cap off his IU career. Unfortunately for Escobedo, that was not in the cards at the NCAA Championships in Omaha, Neb., last weekend.

Grapplers hit NCAA Championship mats

The IU wrestling team will come into the NCAA Championships on March 18 in Omaha, Neb. As the No. 1 seed at 125 pounds, senior Angel Escobedo will attempt to repeat his run that landed him a national title two years ago. With a record-breaking third Big Ten title and perfect 33-0 record under his belt, Escobedo is once again the favorite to win.

Angel Escobedo wins 3rd-straight Big Ten title

·

The Big Ten Championships did not go the way the Hoosiers envisioned this weekend in Ann Arbor, Mich. An eighth-place finish was an improvement from last year’s ninth-place result, but it was not the strong finish to the season many had predicted.

IU tries to end a 67-year drought at Big Tens

·

Forty-seven nationally ranked wrestlers, eight teams in the top 25, and 21 out of the last 30 National Championship teams are just a few reasons why the Big Ten is the best wrestling conference in the country.

Hoosiers gain key victories

·

Angel Escobedo is lucky that his family and friends were not late for Senior Night at University Gym. Donning white shirts with a winged letter “A,” Escobedo’s entourage did not get to see him on the mat for long.

IU seniors to grapple at University Gym mats for final time Friday

Friday night will be the last time the Hoosier faithful will see Angel Escobedo get the Hoosiers off to an early lead at 125 pounds, the last time they will see Matt Coughlin compete in a grind-it-out match at 149 pounds, the last time fans can get on their feet for a Trevor Perry pin at 175 pounds, and the last time they will get a chance to witness Nate Everhart secure a Hoosier victory at heavyweight.

IU splits matches against Big Ten foes

·

IU coach Duane Goldman has repeatedly stressed the need for upset victories in Big Ten play.   On Friday night, Goldman got exactly what he was asking for, in dramatic fashion.

Grapplers’ grueling workout regimen paying off

·

As the wrestlers shuffle along their practice room’s mat-covered floor, IU coach Duane Goldman barks out orders. “Keep your head up,” he implores them. “Touch the ground.” Assistant coach Joe Dubuque, who wrestled for Goldman for two national championships at IU, works with team members, bending low at the knee, lifting his head and showing them proper technique. “Gotta get better today,” he shouts.

Everhart hopes to end career as nation's best

·

When senior Nate Everhart arrived on the IU campus his freshman year, he was far from the physical beast he is today. Weighing below 200 pounds, Everhart was not intimidating many wrestlers with his size.   The Tinsley, Ill., native received offers to play baseball at Iowa and Missouri but decided wrestling at a Big Ten school and getting a Big Ten education was the right path. IU coach Duane Goldman knew that he was getting a guy with brains and brawn.

Two-time wrestling champ Dubuque mentors Escobedo

·

When Angel Escobedo was a redshirt freshman, he watched Joe Dubuque win the second of his back-to-back National Championships at 125 pounds.   Dubuque might not have realized it, but he was setting the bar for Escobedo’s future with IU wrestling.
