  1. They've gotta get rid of Goldman. If nothing else just make the strangler the head coach and let him bring in a decent staff.

Just six years ago, the two Boilermaker coaches were wrestling in the Big Ten tournament themselves. The 2014-15 season brought a great deal of change to the Purdue wrestling program, namely the hiring of new head coach Tony Ersland. He had spent the previous eight years as an assista
  7. Robinson won 5-3 over the smallish Ray Gordon. Understandably, he looked a little gassed but, the athleticism was impressive. He can knock out and go behind faster than half the guys in the lineup.

  9. http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2015/January/22/Coach-Tony-Ersland-looking-to-make-big-impact-at-Purdue First-year head coach Tony Ersland is looking to build a top-level program at Purdue. Purdue University photos. Tony Ersland believes it can be done at Purdue. Spend a few minutes talking with the dynamic and motivated first-year Boilermakers wrestling coach and you will walk away convinced he is right. “Our expectations are extremely high,” the 40-year-old Ersland said. “We don’t want to just get one or two guys on the podium at the national tournament – we want hammers
  10. looks small, slow and frustrated. Got manhandled by Sammy Brooks bad. He doesn't look to be progressing well. He's still crafty for a bigger guy but has major trouble finishing. I thought he'd be way further along with Borschel in the room.
  11. Yep 100% correct. You can't win consistently against top guys being defensively lazy. He get's caught flat-footed and everyone can just get in on him.
  12. Sabatello trying to rip Malone's face off, at the end of the period, for no other reason than meanness, made me happy.

  14. Lost a tough match to Josh Demas 3-2 early in the season. Beat Jarret Jensen and a game Brandon Zeerip. He's doing great IMO but at this point I'd say AA is a stretch. He's lost to #11 Lavallee and #14 Cody Pack already this year. That low AA territory is jammed with guys like Realbuto, Dylan Alton, Mitch Minotti, Isaiah Martinez etc. But!!! (I forgot to add this) the win over Green shows he can put it together against anyone.
  15. Right. Look at Illinois. They've transformed that program into a roughneck outfit. It's not an apples to apples comparison in terms of where they're at talent and recruiting wise. They're a top 10-15 team right now. But the style they wrestle has changed over the last few years. Those guys GO HARD. They're in shape, and they're mean and nasty. If you let up, they're gonna put it on you. They're tough and the world of college wrestling respects that.
  16. I've said it here a lot, but I'll say it again; put together an aggressive program that wrestles hard and mean, goes out to fight for every point and every position with heart, and people in this state will get behind it big time. You don't need to win the Big10. You need to go out and get in a street fight for it and they'll love you. I get the feeling Ersland is fully aware of this and is trying to create a brand.
  17. 36-3. The IU twitter gave play by play in the Walsh match only. The rest were just one sad result after another. https://twitter.com/iuwrestling1
  18. No way Walsh wins an NCAA title. He just got by Morse this time 4-2. I don't think he can beat Sulzer, Dieringer, Jordan, Moore and maybe not even Massa or Palacio. He get's caught flat footed all the time. Guys just get in on him at will. Yes he wrestles well from there. Yes he's been successful with his counter wrestling. But the probability of grinding through an NCAA tournament when everyone can easily get past your head/hands IMO is very low.
  19. I'd go so far as to say that IU being this bad damages the recruitment of our kids nationwide. IU factors in to how wrestling in Indiana is perceived.

Wrestling in Holloway Gymnasium for the first time this season, the Boilermakers toppled Indiana Tech, 39-6, and upset No. 18 Northern Iowa, 21-15.

The Boilermakers (1-0, 0-0 B1G) received bonus points at 133, 141, 149 and 197. "There were a lot of good things, I really like that we took the fight to them to start," Ersland said. "I think we need to do a better job of closing
