TERRY from page 6
“But it’s hard to see that part of him
from the outside. He has a meanness to
him. But that translates into his willing
ness to beat people.”
That ability to beat people will help
Terry in the March NCAA
Championships, Neumann said.
In preparing for the tournament,
Terry said, he hopes he doesn’t have a
repeat of last year.
Terry went into last year’s tourna
ment as the No. 2 seed with a 20-2
record on die season. Hallway through
the semifinal match, Terry hurt his
shoulder, but managed to take third
place in the tournament.
“It happened at a really bad time in
the season,” Terry said. “I was disap
pointed but there was nothing I could
do about it I still have to sit out a lot I
wrestle when it feels good, and I’m still
working with it”
lerry has only wrestled in three
tournaments this season. But Neumann
said Terry’s injury has affected his atti
tude toward the season.
“I think if he’s honest with himself,
this is the first time he’s felt vulnerable,”
Terry’s perfect record has yet to put
him back in the No. 1 spot, where he
started out the season.
“He’s been discounted,” Neumann
said. “The wrestling media dropped
him from one to four just because he
was hurt and he had only wrestled in
two tournaments since last year.”
But Terry doesn’t act concerned.
‘To be honest with you, I don’t want
to prove anything to anybody,” Terry
said. “I just want to get through the rest
of the season without getting injured.”

they have an extra 7-pound cushion.
So instead of an 118-pounder coming
in at 130 pounds, he would come back
to school in the fall at 137 pounds
without the use of rubber suits and
saunas to cut water.
“It’s going to be harder,”
Neumann said. “It’s going to be hard
er because they don’t get to use the
plastics to cut the water. They are
going to haw to stay a lot more disci
plined during the offseason. They are
not going to be able to move up like
The NCAA also set a two-hour
time limit on weigh-ins earlier this
month, stopping a wrestler from
putting on weight after weighing in. In
previous years, weigh-ins were held
the night before a meet, allowing
wrestlers time to regain tire water they
had lost to make the weight limit
The final rule the NCAA imple
mented earlier this month was that
wrestlers can only compete in weight
classes in which they competed in on
or before Jan. 7.
The new rules were implemented
because of the deaths of three colle
giate wrestlers in November and
December last year.
“You can look at it like that was
the cause, bait let’s just do something
to make sure that we do something to
protect our athletes,” Oklahoma State
Coach John Smith said. “All these
new rules are going to do is force you
to educate your athletes. Athletes will
also have to educate themselves.
“Seven pounds, 1 thought that was
a lot, but it made sense to me.
Anything less and the change is not
good. The change is just good now.”
Neumann agreed that education
of athletes was the best way to elimi
nate weigfi£loss problems that have
happened to other athletes.
“Definitely the rule changes was a
knee-jerk reaction,” Neumann said.
“But the NCAA knew it needed to do
something to make it more healthy for
On Nov. 9, Billy Saylor of
Campbell (N.C.) University died
when trying to drop 6 pounds for a
match. Then Wisconsin-La Crosse
wrestler Joseph LaRosa died while
wearing a rubber suit and riding an
exercise bike, trying to shed 4 pounds.
In December, Michigan wrestler
Jeff Reese died of kidney failure and
heart malfunction while wearing a
rubber suit and riding a stationary
bike to lose weight.
Neumann said it was the
Michigan death, which occurred at a
big-name school in a big-name con
ference, that prompted the NCAA to
make the changes.
“The Michigan guy didn’t do any
thing that my guys haven’t done,”
However, the education for
wrestlers have already begun, said
NU senior Ryan Tobin.
The Huskers experienced the new
rules for the first time when they com
peted at the National Duals in Iowa
City, Iowa on Jan. 17 and 18.
“We didn’t wrestle as good as we
could, so we’re still figuring out
what’s the best way to do it,” Tobin
said. “Some of the guys are still get
ting a feel for it I’m still trying differ
ent things every week.
“But as far as the weight goes, the
7 pounds coming in the middle of the
season, you don’t see near the weight
cutting you did before.”
Tobin said he has tried different
training techniques, including train
ing at different weights and studying
his eating habits.
“It all affects you on how you can
compete,” Tobin said “I’m still trying
to figure out iny optimum weight that
I can compete die best that I can at the
One of the changes the Huskers
have implemented is moving their
pre-match warm-up back an hour to
help the wrestlers meet their weight
requirements, Neumann said.
But Smith said there needs to be
