  1. So far just the bare day-to-day expenses of a college wrestling program. Often, when setting things up or bringing an old program back, there can be all kinds of additional strings attached, as Oregon found out: http://www.oregonlive.com/ducks/index.ssf/2015/10/goe_the_university_of_oregon_t.html
  2. Best case scenario might be as an associate head coach at a Div. I program where he runs practice, and the head job done by someone more temperamentally suited for it.
  3. http://mgoblue.com/news/2018/3/27/bormet-elevated-to-head-coach-of-michigan-wrestling.aspx
  4. Is he definitely looking to continue coaching?
  5. And yes, it looks like they are making a serious effort to build a Div. I program: https://ignite.usc.edu/project/1527
  6. Yes,I meant to say that all the schools listed once had programs except USC, which would be a brand new program. All the rest would be re-starting programs that had been active but later discontinued.
  7. With the exception of USC, I'd want to see these programs resurrected: Syracuse Boston LSU UCLA USC Washington Cal Berkeley Oregon Boise State Eastern Michigan
  8. That's pretty audacious If they've actually said that, given that one was left with the program. Maybe the place to start with getting wrestling back would be to follow a paper trail to find out what actually happened to it.
  9. Has he indicated anytime recently that he intends to retire soon?
  10. I'm sure Casey would make a great head coach, although it sounds like he's got a pretty good situation at Penn State. And the "Michigan Man" thing, while a consideration, is not necessarily an absolute.
  11. He was the assistant coach there in the late 90s under a schizophrenic regime. He probably knows it as well as anyone would.
  12. Maybe it got sucked into the gridiron: https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2018/03/20/eastern-michigan-university-budget-woes-prompt-cutting-4-sports-programs/440893002/ "A number of faculty and students have called for the university to drop out of Division I football — either completely dropping the program or moving down in division, which would decrease the cost. In recent years, Eastern Michigan, with about 21,000 students, has spent more than $27 million a year from the university's general fund on sports. Many of the issues with Eastern Michigan's spending have centered on football, which has had poor performance and low attendance for years."
  13. A real shame. It seems to me that tuitions at all schools keep going nowhere but up, and yet they still need to cut these programs?
  14. I suppose it's possible, although I'd think they'd want to redshirt his first year, especially being a small heavyweight. Coon was a truly rare exception by starting and excelling at HWT as a true freshman.
  15. A little insight into Sean's influence: Way back at the 2008 NCAAs, on the last day during the final consolation rounds, Northwestern's Dustin Fox, who was to wrestle JD Bergman for the heavyweight title that evening, walks over to the Michigan section, and in front of everybody, asks Sean for help on focusing for his task ahead that evening. Sean was not yet back on the coaching staff and it wasn't an overly technical request, but he (Fox) didn't even try to make it a private conversation, and it struck me how he had no doubt that one of his former coaches would be there to help him. It was therefore not too surprising to me that when they did the staff shakeup in 2010, they went after him. At the time, Sean was doing very well financially with Overtime, and having fun training high school, collegiate and world level competitors from all over, so my guess is that in addition to a very generous package, Joe probably told him that he would get the reins after a certain period. Similar to what Dale Bahr did to get Joe back to A2 from Indiana back in the 90s. I'm hoping he'll be around for a while to take the program yet further.
  16. Four Div. I All Americans were from the state of Indiana, but wrestle for different schools. Micic is one of them.
  17. Michigan (very tentative) 125: Mattin 133: Micic 141: Profaci/Freeman 149: Ma. Amine 157: Pantaleo 165: Massa 174: Mi Amine 184: Embree 197: Striggow/Davison HWT: Ready
  18. I know he's been running his academy pretty much since he left Oklahoma State. For a while it sounded like he was developing talent in a state not known for wrestling, although I haven't heard much about him recently. Insight?
  19. I was thinking the same thing when I saw the thread title! Rats! :) Seriously, it's great to see wrestling get more of a toehold in the Deep South. It's been so long of a drought.
  20. I really can't see how it could be anyone other than Sean. A proven coach who's helped bring the program up to its present level, bleeds maize and blue, and is practically at the helm already.
  21. A real cheap shot. Your handle says it all.
  22. The font on that uniform actually hasn't been used for the last few years.
  23. I think Cody, Cole and Cael were on ISU's team for at least one year back in the 90s.
  24. Adam's actually working on something for that: https://twitter.com/umichwrestling/status/962720698379657216
