BY STEVEN COHEN
Last weekend the fifth-ranked Iowa wrestling team
defeated Oklahoma State and defending national
champion Arizona State to make things confusing
again in the college wrestling world.
Iowa, winners of nine of the past 11 national titles,
may be back on top of the rankings again.
Just two weeks ago, Sports Illustrated had it all
figured out. SI did a feature on the Cowboy-Sun Devil
matchup and proclaimed those two teams the
frontrunners for the national championship. ASU, by
virtue of its 20-15 victory over the Cowboys, was
ranked No.-1.
ASU then took its top-ranking into Iowa City
Sunday night but were unable to escape with it intact.
ASU lost to the Hawkeyes, 20-14. The night before,
No.2 Oklahoma State ventured into Carver-Hawkeye
Arena only to lose, 26-10.
Where does this leave fourth-ranked Michigan? The
Wolverines lost to the Cowboys, 21-15, Penn State,
21-14, and defeated Iowa 23-17, at the Great American
Duals Classic in January.
"I think Iowa should be ranked No.1 and Michigan
would have to be ranked very, very close behind
Iowa," ASU Coach Bobby Douglas said. "I'm taking
into consideration that Iowa was not as strong against
Michigan as they were against us."
When Michigan defeated Iowa, the Hawkeyes were
without 167-pounder John Heffernan, whose success
against Michigan's Mike Amine is crucial to Iowa's
Big Ten hopes. Heffernan is ranked No.2 while Amine

is No.5. Iowa was also hurt by 142-pounder Eric
Pierson's injury default against Larry Gotcher.
Though he gave Iowa credit for its victories last
weekend, Michigan coach Dale Bahr was hardly
daunted by the results.
"It just means the race gets tighter," Bahr said. "The
Big Tens (March 4 and 5) will be a dogfight."
The national championship picture is even muddier.
"I think (Iowa's victories) just showed that there are
a number of teams, six or seven, that could win the
national championship," John Fritz, assistant coach
of third-ranked Penn State, said.
Iowa assistant coach Mark Johnson concurred.
"I don't think that there is one team that will
dominate. I see Michigan as being right in there.
Having seniors (5) always helps. They have as good a
chance as anyone," Johnson said.
"We're really excited about our chances," said Iowa
assistant coach Mark Johnson. "We still have some
concerns, at 142, 50 and 58. But with five redshirt
freshmen we really have the makings of a great team."
Michigan has faced every team in the top five
except Arizona State. Douglas analyzed the matchup.
He feels that ASU would be favored at
118,142,150,177, and 190 pounds. He gives the
Wolverines the edge at 134,158,167, and heavyweight.
126 pounds is a tossup, he said.
Douglas is anxiously anticipating the national
championships, March 16-18, in Oklahoma City.
"Tell everyone we're looking to ambush the Big Ten
and BigEight in Oklahoma."
