    American University wrestling?

    I sent an email to the AD, Dr. Billy Walker, to ask him several questions myself and others had about the wrestling team. I was pleasantly surprised when he called me in less than 5 minutes. The first thing we talked about was dropping the program. He told me in no uncertain terms that topic of dropping the program was never even brought up by the president & he should have been more forceful in his email to make sure nobody got that impression. Other points he mentioned are that the season will DEFINITELY go on & there will be a national search for a head coach beginning ASAP. He also said he and others in the athletic dept. are giving Jason and Jeric all the support they can so that the season can go on with as few problems as possible and they are trying to reschedule with Navy (would have been this weekend I believe) in addition to their other matches they have. I really appreciated the phone call which he had no obligation to make. Dr. Walker, who wrestled at Air Force and does not know me from Adam, was concerned that people were thinking the program might be dropped. He did not say why Coach Moore is no longer there which I expected. As for all of us who are fans of Teague we will miss him and hope he succeds in his next job. I personally wish Coach was still there coaching & I really hate to see him go. But, if he can't be the coach, then we all are going to be rooting like crazy for a great hire. While I read here on this board where people were saying AU is no Ivy league school, that may be true. But it is WAY above the level of most colleges including what it takes to get in there, succeed while you are there and how graduates are perceived in the work force especially in politics, business and law just to name a few. I know my kid is getting a hell of a lot better education than he would have almost anywhere else. If I hear anything else I will let everybody know.

    Is Dake a Big Story?

    I am really surprised the Living the Dream medal fund doesn't get brought up more often. At the world championships that pays $50,000 for gold, regardless of if it is at 74 or 79 kg. I am sure that Kyle does well between his contract with Spartan Combat, Cornell, and various sponsorship opportunities (recently to also include pro card appearances), but the additional $100,000 over the last two years has certainly improved things for his family. the fund also pays $25,000 for silver and 15 for bronze. I am of the opinion that Kyle would have taken one if not both of JB's last two world team spots, but considering his career ledger against JB to date, it does not take a degree in advanced statistics to understand the motivation to be a near lock in 18 & 19 to finish in the money. The venture at 74 would have been a coin flip to make the team, and you can't medal if you're not in the bracket. The gold medals up at 79 are just as shiny. Legacy is important too, but Kyle has a chance to tackle that in Tokyo, where the medal fund increases to $250,000 for gold. This is a lot of words to say that the term "ducking" is overly critical. I am glad to see our medal fund working, as it was intended to keep our top guys wrestling, and maybe another consequence is that it spreads our talent out in a manner that maximizes our annual medal yield.

    IL vs WI vs tOSU tri meet

    Illinois has now beaten Ohio State, Michigan, Missouri, and Rutgers in the past 12 months (along with Wisconsin and Northwestern). I really, really appreciate Flo and all that they do for the sport, but if I could offer one criticism it would be their allegiance to pet programs and their complete disregard for others. Last year, I probably listened to at least a combined 4 hours of talk about Rutgers, 4+ hours of talk about Michigan, countless hours of talk about Ohio State, and not 4 minutes combined about Illinois, who has now beaten all three. Flo spent hours stroking Sammy Alvarez and never once mentioned Piotrowski who pinned him twice. Can Illinois finally get a little love?

    I think so. I feel like any top tier wrestler who can get into Princeton is choosing Princeton, Harvard, Cornell, or UVA. Maybe a couple others (Michigan, American, Brown?). Princeton is on the list for every single one of those. Attending Navy is insane. Your whole life revolves around the Navy. It takes someone who really wants to make a career in the Navy. There just aren’t that many high level recruits like that.

    Man how good is Brian Smith?

    Missouri isn’t exactly a long time top wrestling destination and yet Smith has them up near the top every season. Even with top coaches like Henson and Eierman leaving. Man, I really wanted him back at MSU once Minkel finally left. Not that he would have came back after a 5 minute conversation with anyone representing the dumpster fire that MSU’s Athletic Department currently is. Still, back on topic. They lose both Eiermans and haven’t missed a beat. Many thought the way the left showed some internal problems that could cause a serious drop off. Instead, Hart takes over 141 and is ranked 4th. On top of that, they should rather easily have all 10 qualify for NCAA’s. I just can’t imagine any coach doing more with what Missouri has to offer. I am truly very impressed!

    The Fall of Minnesota

    Against Iowa they started two true freshman, one redshirt freshman, four sophomores, a junior who had wrestled maybe ten matches in all his previous years combined due to surgeries (Allar), Gable who is a junior that didn’t redshirt, and a “senior” who has less than a full season of D1 experience. They could have almost this exact same lineup three years from now, I’m interested to see how they do then. I also think it’s funny that someone called them “Maryland level bad” a week after they beat Maryland 48-0 lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The wrestlers were told today in a zoom meeting. They were not told much else except they would be looking for a replacement but it obviously would not be immediate. Their practice time on the mat has been sporadic because of COVID outbreaks. I can say this though - He is one of the finest people I have ever met (my son absolutely loves wrestling for him) and I feel fortunate my son got to know him and wrestle for him. He has been instrumental in my son growing up as a man not just a wrestler. I hate we lost him and don't understand it at all.

    I’m still blaming it on Cael. He killed Minnesota’s dual advantage, convinced Mark Hall to renege on his commitment to the Gophers and probably sent in an undercover Xanax dealer to the dormitory.

    Olympics cancelled?

    I can answer to that as I’ve been involved with developing protocols for return to competition. And it does seem silly, but the reasoning is not at all “you’re not going to catch it during the match but you might with the handshakes”. It’s one of the first steps you take in planning these returns, where can we minimize contacts as much as possible? What are the contacts that have to happen in order for the competition to take place? What are the contacts that have no bearing on the competition? Again, it’s not about operating at either ends of the extreme. It’s about what can we do to mitigate the opportunity for the virus to spread. Handshakes, Jersey swaps, etc have no bearing on the competition, so eliminate those contacts, regardless of how silly they may seem. It’s part of a bigger picture.

    ASU wtf???

    There were no duals. It was a round robin tournament. Cohlton Schultz went 3-0 including beating the top ranked heavyweight in the Big 12 (Brian Andrews of Wyoming - who WrestleStat has ranked # 8 & The Open Mat has ranked # 10). He also beat Trussell of Utah Valley who WS has at # 28. Two of Schultz's 3 matches went into overtime. Chlebove lost two of his three matches - all three were wins (or losses) by decision. UVU/Wyoming/Arizona State Results for Arizona State 141 Julian Chlebove (1-2) placed 4th Round 1 - Chase Zollmann (Wyoming) 2-0 won by decision over Julian Chlebove (Arizona State) 1-2 (Dec 5-2) Round 2 - Julian Chlebove (Arizona State) 1-2 won by decision over Darren Green (Wyoming) 1-1 (Dec 7-4) Round 3 - Nicholas Rino (Utah Valley) 1-2 won by decision over Julian Chlebove (Arizona State) 1-2 (Dec 9-7) 285 Cohlton Schultz (3-0) placed 1st Round 1 - Cohlton Schultz (Arizona State) 3-0 won in tie breaker - 2 over Chase Trussell (Utah Valley) 3-4 (TB-2 2-1) Round 2 - Cohlton Schultz (Arizona State) 3-0 won by decision over Brian Andrews (Wyoming) 1-1 (Dec 4-2) Round 3 - Cohlton Schultz (Arizona State) 3-0 won in tie breaker - 1 over Brooks Baker (Wyoming) 1-2 (TB-1 6-2)

    The takedown stat is more a testament to how good Iowa is, especially on their feet. Nebraska (#6) has a pretty solid squad this year and they only scored 5 total takedowns against Iowa in a 31-6 loss last week. Most of these takedowns were by Labriola against Iowa's backup at 174. If Kemerer wrestles in that dual they beat the Huskers even worse than they beat MN last night.

    NJ Dan, it is already on the schedule. When announced I was puzzled by the redundancy of maintaining a UWW Senior World Championship in the fall of what has become an Olympic year. I now recognize the genius in the decision, regardless of whether the Tokyo Games are pulled off, as I feel a level of comfort knowing our champion wrestlers will be honored one way or the other.

    Rogan podcast with JB

    Anyone else find it ironic that the far left posters on here are trying to claim someone is playing the victim card?? As for the "silencing" part...you have got to be absolutely kidding yourself if you think the left isn't trying to, and has succeeded in some cases, to silence the conservative voices and thoughts. And typical hypocritic behavior to turn around and say someone is playing the "victim" card, or that it is "just capitalism", or "I wonder if it is something they said and not just that they are conservative?" I can't even begin to imagine what the outrage would have been like if it were a lefty politician that was banned for life on social media sites...by the way how many of those lefty politicians "incited violence" when people were attacking police stations and court houses and burning down cities...how many people died from those riots??? Funny...no outrage from you lefites then. And then to turn around and claim that there isn't conservative "silencing" going on from the liberal media and social media is totally a##$nine and quite frankly week. Why don't some of you do us all a favor and just be honest and say you agree with "silencing" ideas and thoughts you disagree with than to play the stupid game of attacking the people who call it out....freaking hypocrites! By the way...I think silencing of anyone is 10000% WRONG!!! I also think that rioting, no matter what the reason, is 10000% WRONG!!!

    They are having a season. Lack of practice time forced by protocols, admin, etc. has made it a bit of a crapshoot but seeing as how nobody is going to have a full schedule it may not be too bad. In other news there, Teague brought in a big recruiting class for next year and, before COVID, there was an announcement that former AU wrestler Alan Meltzer and his wife along with Jack Cassell were donating 10M for a new Center for Athletic Performance and Israel Studies Fellowship. This center would be where wrestling & volleyball practice and competition venues and the weight room are to be moved so things are looking up on that front as well. This came out at the end of 2019 and they had 2 more donations in Dec. 20 so heres hoping they break ground soon.. My kid is pretty close mouthed about everything but he has said he absolutely loves wrestling for Coach Moore. Hopefully they can have some semblance of a season and then next year everything will be back to normal.
