  1. Lord, I hope Jesse stays in state, and goes to One of the two programs on the up. For either, it would be ground breaking.the next rung in the ladder to keep our elite here.
  2. Stanford has decided to put the axe to 10 sports, wrestling is one.
  3. I do use the wrestlestat site, and that is kind of my point. Why doesn't Purdue on their University site have this info , or IU's site? It surely would be more accurate right? Most reports ,that come out about Indiana basketball, on the main stream sports sites are directly taken from IU press releases. Meaning I had the information first hand before ESPN. I do and a lot of others here look at Indiana and Purdue's universities sites more often than wrestlestat. I just think it would generate more interest if this stuff was included.
  4. I don’t use the social media sites at all, Facebook. Twitter and do on. But, Do I need to use all the avenues?To stay up on the latest goings on with the instate D1 schools? Recruiting, who’s redshirting, who’s injured, who’s wrestling at what weight this year? All the stuff that keeps people interested in the teams. Seems like the university releases are old news and vague to me.Maybe the coaches need to have a student assistant keep us up on the inside of what is happening with PU and IU, for the university releases. I am interested in the depth chart of the weight classes, who’s moving up or down in class, I know a lot about the athletes on the football and basketball rosters, not so much of the wrestlers.
  5. Nice to see this for a change, in the program. I would consider this progress for the coaches. To be able to have options is a sign that more kids are taking an interest in Indiana. Hope this happens with all the weights.
  6. I have to agree , it is an advantage for a lot of the programs. Fair? Well only if the coaches don’t take advantage of the situation. But no rules broken, to say it is cheating. I have to say these so called Olympic training programs Could be responsible for the elevated success in world freestyle and Greco.
  7. The virus will be the go to reason to drop many non revenue athletes programs. Wrestling as one.
  8. Jury is still out on all of these questions, till we hear from NCAA powers to be.
  9. I don’t follow MMA, but I know it’s popular with wrestling fans and wrestlers. If the ones in the know says he is a good fit, then there must be something to it. Big question, does Mr. Lydy have interest in continuing in contact sports.
  10. Hmmm........,may be our next POTUS! Wow , very thoughtful presentation, for lack of a better word. You will never see an unemployment line, that’s for sure.
  11. Agreed, Fantasy is the key word here. but what else is there to do?
  12. Yes this was a good year for the Boilers, no doubt,and I remember Indiana had a team, about 20 or so years ago, that was decent at the NCAA. But we all saw what happened to Indiana. Jury is out for the boilers for now. I'm not on here to Dis what is happening with the two schools, I go to all of Indianas matches and stay up with Purdue , but a part of me thinks there isn't enough time for it to happen with the given history of wrestling at these schools.hopefully they prove me wrong.
  13. Can Purdue or Indiana be a top five NCAA wrestling program, not only in the next few years , but ever? Right now the cards are stacked against them. All the elite HS guys are not giving the in state schools a sniff. The two coaches of the in state schools are good, but do they have the aura to bring in the top recruits in the country to elevate their respective programs to the top ten or top five. I think the best programs get good help from their respective athletics director, to be able to keep them in the top of the NCAA. I don’t need to name the schools, but do you think it’s possible here?
  14. I agree, and I think they all dream about AA status. It’s the big prize for most of not the main one.
  15. The point is , as I stated in the college section of this forum, a wrestler has to learn and feel out the guy he’s wrestling in a match.sometimes when he knows he will face a wrestler multiple times in a season.Its not a good thing to show all of your cards when the stakes aren’t as high. Sometimes you win those and sometimes you don’t have the opportunity to. Especially when the two are even ,in talent and abilities. And going undefeated in a season is a goal but so few ever achieve, as is winning a national championship. So yes you are exactly right, the matches would have gone differently if they knew AA status was on the line. Not a fair plan for anyone involved. Although is see your pain for all the wrestlers.
