Bloody Elbow's 'dirty dozen' preseason ranking of the nation's top twelve college wrestling programs continues with number 9, the Oklahoma State Cowboys. I'm not quite sure what to make of Oklahoma State's wrestling team this year. The most decorated program in wrestling history enters the 2014-2015 season with more questions than answers.

Bloody Elbow continues its 'dirty dozen' preseason ranking of the nation's to NCAA wrestling teams. In today's edition, the number 10 Nebraska Cornhuskers. This past off season the University of Nebraska wrestling team and head coach Mark Manning suffered a major setback with the departure of ace assistant coach Tony Ersland, who became the head coach at Purdue.

Same as it ever was? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continues to reshuffle its welterweight rankings in the wake of recent events like UFC Fight Night 54, where Rory MacDonald slept Tarec Saffiedine on FOX Sports 1. Unfortunately, the highlight-reel win (watch it) didn't do much to improve his standing. But UFC 181 will take care of that. Until then, we have to sort things out in this rapidly-changing division.
