We are so close I can almost taste the competition. Now, I do not want to actually taste it because it would be gamey and very lean, but I am wandering off the topic. The NCAA Division II Men’s Wrestling season officially starts for me on November 1st when the first whistle blows. This is going to be a great season for #D2Wrestle coverage from TheOpenMat and I hope you already are a TOM Prime member to get the truly in-depth looks that we offer. If you are not, that is great too as long as you follow along on the race for the 2019-20 championship trophy that will be presented in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Here is a not all-inclusive list of events that you may want to keep an eye on. There are inaugural duals for new Division II schools, invitationals, dual invitationals, regional rivalries, and of course the postseason. If you happen to be local for them, make sure that you get out and support your programs. These athletes and teams deserve as much attention as we can shine on them and you can be part of it. The list includes inaugural duals for new programs, big team match-ups, who will be at the biggest tournaments, and some possible milestones we could see.

A great resource for duals that are listed on team schedules currently (as of me writing this) is Wrestlestat’s site.
