    Wrestling podcaster Ryan Warner has one simple question for you

    Wrestling podcaster Ryan Warner has one simple question for you

    How did wrestling change your life? That’s exactly the question Ryan Warner wants to know and that’s exactly the theme of his podcast, Wrestling Changed My Life. Warner, an Illinois native, started up the podcast a couple years ago and has been prolific with his interviews and his conversational style of podcast. Digging into greats, documentary series on his own and with the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, Wrestling Changed My Life has been a fan favorite and it’s only getting better.

    LEADING OFF
    There is wrestling. This is more than likely a test of how much of a wrestling fan you’re going to make yourself. There is limited action around the country, but the men and women in the NAIA are competing. The NAIA released its first Women’s Coaches Poll of the season on Monday and Wayland Baptist comes in No. 1, ahead of Campbellsville, Grand View, Menlo and Life. Wayland just recently lost its head coach as Aaron Meister left to go back to his native Kansas to start the men’s and women’s program at Friends University in Wichita.

    Speaking of Life, coach Ashley Sword’s team was in action over the weekend and topped Indiana Tech and the University of the Cumberlands. Indiana Tech was wrestling its first ever women’s dual matches in school history. Life won 39-5 while the University of the Cumberlands edged Indiana tech 25-23.

    Life beat Brewton-Parker 42-4 on Monday night as well.
    On the men’s side of things, third-ranked Reinhardt opened up 2-0 after a trip to Florida, beating Keiser 55-0 and fifth-ranked Southeastern 24-19. Southeastern beat Keiser 49-6.

    Coleman Bryant of Southeastern knocked off Cole Tenety 3-1 in sudden victory at 174 pounds in a matchup of returning All-Americans. Former Indiana Hooser Blake Rypel has resurfaced on the college mats, he’s at Southeastern. He won his debut by fall at 184 for the Fire. Reinhardt did pick up powerful bonus victories from returning All-Americans Trent Leon, Nolan Saxton and Antonio Stewart  to power coach Jeff Bedard’s Eagles.

    In other action on Monday, Brewton-Parker College beat Central Baptist (Ark.) 53-3, while St. Andrews beat the Central Baptist 42-15. No official score from St. Andrews and Brewton-Parker, but I’m told it was 43-9 in favor of Brewton-Parker. Not the first time I’ve had to chase down the opposing team looking for a score from a wrestling event held at BPC, but I digress.
    Here’s what went down since the last time I gave a scoreboard update:
    Jamestown (N.D.) beat Northwestern (Iowa) 24-22.
    Arizona Christian beat Hastings 28-15
    No. 7 Indiana Tech beat Thomas More 26-21
    No. 4 Lindsey Wilson got a pair of big W’s, shutting out Missouri Baptist 55-0 and beating Williams Baptist 46-3. Williams Baptist beat Missouri Baptist 42-12 in the other dual there.

    Earlier in the week, Benedictine (Kan.) beat Central Methodist 27-18, while Ottawa (Kan.) beat Oklahoma Wesleyan 43-12.
    New coaching alert in Division II where Ohio State alum Colt Sponseller is now the new head coach at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio. Josh Hutchens stepped down back in September. … while NCAA qualifier Michael Blockhus will land at Minnesota after announcing he was leaving Northern Iowa a few days ago.

    IAwrestle's Tony Hager and the podcast tech within wrestling

    IAwrestle's Tony Hager and the podcast tech within wrestling

    Tony Hager, one of the guys behind IAWrestle, joins Short Time as part of International Podcast Day to talk about what he’s been doing with IAwrestle, Night of Conflict and his Rokfin-based Hager’s Happy Hour, which is a wrestling-centric show about pretty much anything. Well, beer and wrestling and everything else.

    Hager and Bryant talk about the genesis of the show idea, turn things around to talk about the importance of podcasting on the wrestling medium, as well as thing we all do to help one another promote the sport and developing the brands and content behind it.


    LEADING OFF
    Life University, ranked second in the NAIA to open the season welcomed first-year Montreat to the world of wrestling with a 49-(-1) dual win on Wednesday night. Yes, in case you haven’t been listening to the intro, we DO have college wrestling going on in places. Briar Cliff beat Northwestern - the one in Iowa 34-7. This is the time of year where I tell you that Northwestern College is in Orange City, Iowa but for some reason, they’re the Red Raiders. The Chargers of Briar Cliff won eight out of 10, highlighted by a first-period fall from Matthew Wilke at 285
     
    ROCKING WRESTLING FACT DROP
    In 1994, the NJCAA started awarding two national championships - one for scholarship-offering schools and another for non-scholarship schools. The team scores would be counted in the same division, but only divisions broken out based on the existing competition. In the first year, Harper College won the non-scholarship division, but actually scored more points than the scholarship division champion, Garden City. Harper outscored Garden City 115-108.75. It’s not the only time it’s happened. Again, Harper outscored Iowa Central in 2010, 137-116.

    Launching the Etched in Stone podcast series with NCAA champion and show architect Pat Christenson

    Launching the Etched in Stone podcast series with NCAA champion and show architect Pat Christenson

    Pat Christenson has spent the last 19 years as the President of Las Vegas Events, which has helped bring major sporting events and such to Las Vegas. He’s been a key person behind the bid process for the NCAA championships for Las Vegas in all sports. He was also instrumental in the 2008 Olympic Trials and 2015 World Championships coming to Las Vegas.
    As a wrestler, Christenson won the 1976 NCAA Division I championship at 167 pounds as an unseeded senior for the University of Wisconsin. He’s got long relationships in the sport and he’s using that to springboard a new podcast series supported by the the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and USA Wrestling called Etched in Stone, a podcast that’s aimed at telling compelling and interesting stories about the 179 Distinguished Members of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. That podcast launches on November 17.
    Christenson talks about the project and the idea behind it, who’s involved and why Mark Churella is the lead-off series in the first season.
    Listen to Etched in Stone on your favorite podcatcher starting November 17.

    LEADING OFF
    What you know already is USA Wrestling held the U23 and UWW Junior Nationals in Omaha this past weekend. All the results are on FloArena, all the recaps you can find on TheMat.com or via my daily wrestling newsletter at mattalkonline.com/news. Jordan Burroughs beat Zahid Valencia, highlighting a seven-bout card on Flowrestling on Saturday. Word already circulating that David Taylor and Mr. Burroughs will meet at some point in December. Again, those results on Flo.

    WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW
    College wrestling is actually going on some places around the country. Adrian College hosted an invitational over the weekend, which it won. It also hosted a women’s open.

    Host Adrian won the men’s invitational and had three champs, while Indiana Tech had three and Thomas More two. On the women’s side, Adrian and Indiana Tech had four champs each with UW-Stevens Point also picking up one gold.

    The Citadel became the first Division I school to take to the mats this season, beating St. Thomas of Florida 54-0 in their opener. The Bobcats are a first-year NAIA program in Miami Gardens, Florida. Other scores over the weekend saw Concordia (Neb.) beat Dakota Wesleyan 34-6 and Brewton-Parker edge first-year Montreat 25-21. Those both in the NAIA.

    For the college scores, I’d recommend you go to trackwrestling.com and click “Seasons” and click the appropriate year and division of your choice for quick access to the matches we do have this season.

    That isn’t a complete list, but guess what, since we’ve got this section at the beginning of the show, that’ll be where Short Time Shots kinda sits ahead of these interviews, so you get your news here, your reviews here, your previews and interviews on the back half!

    Exploring the world of Fantasy College Wrestling

    Exploring the world of Fantasy College Wrestling

    Fantasy wrestling has become a thing. Tony and Todd aim to bring the wrestling fans who host their own leagues information on the top scorers and favorable schedules as well as talking some general wrestling news while they're at it. It's for all your major decisions. 

    ALSO
    The 2021 Virginia Duals have been canceled. I’ll breakdown a bit of information as to what led to it. Don’t yet have a presser about it, but it’ll be out when I get a chance to write it. I also talk about Friday The 13th movies, #WillieTrials and how to get your wrestling news each morning.
    OUTSTANDING
    Reggie Wilson became the first wrestler in NJCAA history to win multiple outstanding wrestler awards. Representing Triton at 167 pounds, Wilson garnered the award in 1983 and followed it up with another outstanding performance, winning the 177-pound title in 1984, beating Joe Rigous of Bucks County in the finals.

    QCA Wrestle's Rob Hill talks more than just Quad Cities wrestling

    QCA Wrestle's Rob Hill talks more than just Quad Cities wrestling

    Rob Hill and Jay Zeimet are the hosts of the QCA Wrestle Podcast. Rob and Jay both grew up in Iowa and wrestled through high school.  Now, both have kids heavily involved in the sport. While they are both veterans in talking about wrestling, this is the first podcast either has been involved in. The QCA Wrestle Podcast predominantly consists of interviews of figures in the wrestling community, where we get to know our guests, dissect their careers, and provide our audience with actionable advice on how to succeed, in wrestling and in life. 

    ALSO
    Opening topics touch on the anniversary or birthday of sorts for Short Time, how and why you should subscribe to Mat Talk Online’s DAILY WRESTLING NEWS, a new home to Chris Basford’s Division II wrestling rankings and of course, #WillieTrials
     
    SPEAKING OF RULON
    2000 Olympic champion Rulon Gardner finished third at the 1990 NJCAA Championships at 275 pounds for what was then known as Ricks College. The school, which is now known as BYU-Idaho, dropped all sports in 2002. Gardner would win the title in 1991.

    Hitting record on your wrestling conversation with Bloodround's Tommy Baranoski

    Hitting record on your wrestling conversation with Bloodround's Tommy Baranoski

    One half of the pair behind the Michigan-based, alcohol-induced Bloodround Wrestling Podcast. Tommy Baranoski spent most of his wrestling career trying to come from behind the shadow of his sister's wrestling credentials. Now Baranoski has done fine in the year of our Lord Gable in podcasting. In all seriousness, Baranoski and co-host Kevin Claunch have taken the discussions we have as fans at bars at the NCAAs annually to the podcast form and they’ve done it for over 300 episodes, a milestone often not seen in podcasting, especially with guys who spend half their shows inebriated talking about the greatest sport in the world.

    Also: I chime in on the news of the day, mainly how we’re all paying attention to a little trial going on in the Travis County 261st district down in Texas.
