Just an amazing machine.  One of the greatest dynasties in college sports history.  And with the recruits coming in, there appears to be no end in sight.

Cael Sanderson certainly has put Penn State wrestling back on the map with an exclamation point.

In today's morning consolation rounds, at 133, Roman Bravo-Young finished 8th, but attained All-American status. At 141, Nick Lee finished 5th going out with a pin for the victory. Lee also attained All-American status.

Penn State also clinched the team title with Nolf, Nickal, Hall, Joseph and Cassar still to wrestle in tonight's championship matches.

Cassar is just flat out scary for a heavyweight.  He is so quick for a guy that weighs 245 pounds.  Completely dominated White in the final.

Cassar, Nolf and Nickal all win their matches. Nolf and Nickal finish as 3 time NCAA champions. Hall and Joseph were runners up in their classes.

With Nolf and Nickal graduating, it will be interesting to see who, of the returning wrestlers, wrestles at what weight next season.
