    UMD - Coach Announced - CLEMSEN

    If Alex wasn't (until today) the best assistant coach in the country, he was certainly up there. Remember, coaching isn't just about recruiting wrestlers, but also about development of those wrestlers, and other administrative matters. Alex is darned good at that, and he certainly learned from the best of them (and Alex was more accomplished as a wrestler than his boss was...Brian's best result was losing in the blood round as a senior, Alex finished fourth in his senior year).

    Who will Maryland hire?

    Nope, sorry. Your crystal ball suggested that Alex Clemson would be the next head coach, it turned out to be Alex Clemsen. I assume the former is a reference to the mascot for an orange and purple team in upstate South Carolina that doesn't sponsor wrestling.

    HA! Also, there's no such thing as Title XI (eleven) within Public Law 92-318. There are, however, three separate title IX's (nine) within that statute. One refers to Graduate Programs, one to Ethnic Heritage Programs, and the third, the one you're referring to, refers to the Prohibition of Sex Discrimination.

    Ask these people if Fencing is an NCAA-sanctioned sport or not: https://www.ncaa.com/news/fencing/article/2019-03-21/ncaa-fencing-championships-columbia-leads-wire-wire-takes-home

    If being a wrestling coach was all about being recognizable to recruits, then Brian Smith (just to use a wrestling example, coincidentally Alex Clemsen's current boss) would've been a complete and total flop in Columbia. C'mon man, you can do better than that...

    And how much does Rutgers pay their fencing coach again?

    Not me. IMO, Clemsen is LOOOOONG overdue for a head coaching job.

    Why I think Penn State is about to decline

    I think he worded things the way he did purposely. The Jeff Byers mentioned was put on leave from Middlebury College, which is a seven-plus-hour drive from Penn State. Hurricane, well played!

    Harry Lester placed on leave at St. V-M...

    Of note: non-wrestling people have probably heard of that school due to its most famous alumnus, a certain Mr. L. James.

    Santoro leaving Lehigh for Maryland would just seem weird...

    LIU (formerly LIU Post) to EIWA

    Normally yes, but this is a special case, because LIU Post is merging into an active Division I athletic department (LIU Brooklyn). As a result, they do not have a probationary period in this case, and will be eligible for the EIWA and NCAA Championships immediately. That said, there is very little chance that LIU will have any qualifiers next year. They had one D-2 qualifier this past year, and he's graduating.

    Pat Smith? Kyle Dake? Logan Stieber? (I assume that Cael would consider Penn State to Maryland a very much downward move)

    Toughest High School tournament

    Is Wisconsin's toughest tournament still the Cheesehead?

    Maryland's first year in the Big Ten, they got beat 24-9 by Duke (at Grapple in the Garden). Duke's 1-4 record that year in the ACC was good for solo last in the conference, and Duke's lone win was a one-point win over NC State. Not sure Maryland would've escaped the cellar of the ACC after Sheptock and Boley graduated in 2014, their last year in the ACC.

    I seriously hope mods lock this thread before my considerable restraint expires and I get myself banned...

    Good luck with Mason trying to get a promotion if he does do anything about it, and opposing coaches could make his current position untenable. (by, say, refusing to schedule duals with his current institution, for one example)

    Welcome to life, man. Do us a favor and google Abar Rouse, and tell me if you think that problem is limited to wrestling.

    Colby Smith?

    If only the institution Smith originally committed to hadn't reneged on him (by dropping their program).

    Doing the most with the least

    Well, they did have one top 100 recruit, but he's now at (ironically) Missouri. (Grant Leeth was originally at Duke)

    Y Slavikouski

    Gimp: Do NEPSAC (the New England region of National Preps) and National Preps have different rules then? Because when I was in HS (at a NEPSAC school), you could be 19 before the school year started, but not 20 before the school year started.

    Non-wrestlers needed

    Non-wrestlers needed

    I never wrestled, and was never around wrestling growing up...my high school started wrestling the year after I graduated (and has since dropped it), my college dropped the sport a couple of years before I made it there, so I was never around it. Ran into it by accident channel-surfing one night and was instantly hooked. Ironically, my dad wrestled for Franklin & Marshall when he was in college, but he passed away while I was in HS, so I never got to share the sport with him. Funny story: the AD at Cornell (current NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships Committee member Andy Noel) was my dad's workout partner.
