    Goldman had enough time?

    It blows my mind that someone who wrestled for Gable in some of the pinnacle Iowa days could be so content with mediocrity. Especially given his own successes on the mat. I've heard rumblings that he essentially self sustains the program with donations. With the successes of soccer and swimming and the focus on basketball, Fred Glass really has no incentive to get him out of there. Seems like they are out of sight out of mind.

    Any good spots in Evansville Friday Night

    The Madisonians are probably out. West side feels more like home!

    Wrestlebacks Poll

    Unfortunately people with very limited wrestling knowledge make these decisions. They are happy with the final product (State Finals) because they know we will never not attend the state tournament based off of the current format. It's easier to keep it how it is, so why change it?

    Return of J Tsirt

    Only way he beats the Zain Train is counter offense, ride out, and getting away or not getting scored on while on bottom; he will not win off of his own attacks. Probably couldn't get off one legit set up offensive attack on Retherford.
  5. It would be cool if Non-D1 champs were still allowed to compete in the D1 tournament. I understand the reasoning for getting rid of that, but I would bet he (Lefever) would do well.

    Purdue Transformation

    You obviously didn't read the second half of that post. Once the schedule is set (prior to Ersland getting there) it is very difficult to change. Give the guy more than 6 months to put things into motion.

    Purdue Transformation

    You're right, numbers don't lie. L. Welch losing 3-1 to #1 Delgado Sabatello beating Zane Richards among others Welch Beating #2(at the time) James Green and #8 Dylan Alton You won't convince me that if there wasn't a change in staff that matches like these would be a regular occurrence.

    Purdue Transformation

    Don't worry about anything Powerline says. He's to Purdue and the Ersland era what Bronxbomber is to IU. (Not that I don't agree with the IU situation)
  10. It is easy to jump on the Walsh bandwagon because he has more pins this season than his first two years combined. I guarantee he has something to do with that; you'd have to be a dunce not to see the correlation. Did you ever watch Simmons wrestle? They look pretty similar from top. Also, who on IU's starting roster through the first four weights would he have had the opportunity to develop to be successful at the Big10 level? Roach and Duca maybe, but both of them were there well before him. Raley would have done big things had he made the grades(so the rumor goes, don't know how accurate that is). Give him time to develop his own recruits. Even Donny Pritzlaff had to have a couple years to develop his own recruits and really solidify the middle weights at Wisconsin, but he also had the luxury of coaching under a tremendous head coach.
  11. He was still in the room working with the wrestlers, while also coordinating events and home duals. Now we're just splitting hairs, though. My point was that he played a role in development and seems to win at whatever he does. Every guy needs time to translate that. Just out of curiosity, and this could be an entirely new thread, who are some guys that would be a good fit at IU or Purdue?
  12. Not until the recruiting classes he plays a big part in start to matriculate. That is all I'm saying is give him some time once Goldman is out of the way. I agree that something needs to change, I just think he is the biggest positive they have and hopefully he can steer them in the right direction.
  13. I'm not saying he is the sole reason for it, but it's no coincidence it happened while he was there. http://www.flowrestling.org/coverage/238998-Oregon-State-Wrestling-Summer-2011/video/500758-Northwest-Regional-Training-Center#.Ux35fvldUdo At around 2:10 he's talking about Hanke and Simmons.
  14. The guy is a proven winner, period. Give him a little more than two years as an assistant to translate that to the program. As director of wrestling operations at Oregon State he was instrumental in some of their greatest success in program history including, two Pac-12 titles(one was a now defunct Pac-10 championship) and a top 10 finish at the NCAA's, all of which was just in the 3 years he was there. You will never be able to convince me that Taylor Walsh would have led the nation in falls if it weren't for Simmons tutelage. As for recruiting, I doubt Jacob Danishek(4x OH State Champ) and Cole Weaver(3x MI State Champ) are going there for Goldman.
  15. I wouldn't clean house necessarily as I would promote Simmons. The guy has a proven track record. He's significantly improved the technique as a whole, especially on top. He has also drastically improved the recruiting classes which seems to always fall on the assistants for some reason(Mena, Dubuque). Goldman will probably leave when his son graduates anyway so "on the fence" IU fans are just biding their time.
