Flo has their "early rankings" for next season.  Only Zargo ranked for Badgers (#20).

Regarding Portal--Noted only 4-5 transfer portal individuals left that are ranked. But still alot of transfers available.

Bono has done well with transfers into the program in the past but now much movement yet.  Believe Badgers are sitting at 3 transferred out, 1 in.  That can not make administration happy.

Surprised to see Felix & Mikey on that list
No reference of entering the portal on either one's social media

Sometimes you need a program to bottom out before it can rise again. :)

BadgerOne I hope you are joking.  This team aint rising any time soon.  Need a new coach, a new wrestling fieldhouse, and NIL money.  It's likely none of the three will be happening any time soon.

Can anyone guess how many scholarships WI might be working with currently?  It has to be significant correct?  I would hope so.  This is one of the many worries at the moment.  Based on the current roster, there should be some significant offers in play, yet still the trajectory isn't improving.  I would expect full offers to Cam Amine and Terrell Barraclough (165 is clear need correct).  Andrew Alirez at 141 as well.  Yes I know these names are not realistic without a large NIL deal.  Additionally I hate to say it, but I'm guessing WI has to outbid the next best offer too, just to have a shot with anyone.

I think you misinterpreted my message.  Mediocrity can be an obstacle to progress.  If the Badgers have a bad enough year, it may force changes and Bono is likely gone.  If they stay mediocre, Bono might be collecting checks for a long long time

BadgerOne - my apologies, I did totally misinterpret your message.  I do believe things really bottom out this year and it is going to be very ugly.  I'm not sure the administration cares either way to be honest - Bono is good at collecting a check and he is terrible at recruiting and developing..........he's nothing more than a "hype" man and a good used car salesman.  Problem is his salary is much  much higher than any used car salesman.......

rjchev141 - Cam Amine or Andrew Alirez??????  Unfortuantely I have a better chance of winning Powerball than the Badgers landing one of those two guys.........:)

Yes that was meant to be the point.  Those immediate title or AA contenders are out of reach for WI.  I would go a step further and say top 20 guys seem to be out of reach as well.  WI is a tough sell at the moment.

Then again, who knows, maybe it is worse than I think and WI doesn't even have scholarship money to offer?

Yes and apparently Carter Storacci is moving up to 197 lbs.  Stephen Buchanan can't catch a break.
