  1. He's going to fit in perfectly at Iowa. Just needs to add the 45lb knee brace!
  2. The Nike shoes Chamizo wore seen to have much better grip.
  3. No..Promote Midlands, Scuffle, CKLV, Conference Tournaments and NCAA Tournament. Also have a pre-season future bet on NCAA Tournament. I think there would plenty wrestling fans/bettors..More TV
  4. Best nickname in College Wrestling...Baby J aka Alfred Bannister[.
  5. I agree but there are 365 college basketball teams that guys need $ but you can bet on every one of their games. Don't have individual bets..Maybe just start with team futures and duals.
  6. Looks like the sports gambling wall has been torn down and most states will probably be taking action pretty soon. NJ has been fighting it for 10 years and they are ready to go. You should be able to place a legal bet in a week or 2. Can you imagine having action on PennState/Ohio State dual or any D1 Dual, Future bets on who will win tournaments (individual and team) or an over/under on a dual outcome. There would be tons of money wagered on NCAA Wrestling and it would bring great interest. On the other hand I understand people that will want to keep the sport amateur and have nothing to do with gambling.
  7. Top 5 paid coaches 1- Cael 2- Ryan 3- Smith 4- Brands 5- Goodale
  8. Seems like they took the high road in Desanto leaving. He was thrown off team before signing with Iowa, And no discussion on that,
  9. It will be interesting to see if he even wrestles on Saturday. I think he'll probably get drafted tonight in the 2nd or 3rd round of the NFL draft. He was his HS team captain.
  10. breaks down every school http://www.nj.com/rutgersfootball/index.ssf/2018/04/does_njs_premier_college_wrestling_team_make_money.html
  11. about all subjects. Talks about hosting Oklahoma State next season! https://www.thescarletspotlight.com/podcast/2018/4/16/the-program-builder-rutgers-wrestling-coach-scott-goodale
  12. I think that depends on the Staff Hahn can bring in. I'm sure he negotiated some good pay for assistants. Bring Louie Lazzari with him to help with fan base.
  13. Cooperman? Would love to see that.
  14. How did Indiana pull that off? They have a resignation and hire in the same day? Doesn't the Athletic Dept. have to open up the job legally? Like Michigan did?
  15. suprised he's looking to leave Cornell as the Associate Head Coach...Figured he would take over when Koll hung them up in 4 or 5 years or whenever he wants...Guess he wants to be a HC now and the longer he waits the tougher it might be...I'd like to see him land at West Virginia...I think it would be a great fit.
  16. Escobedo has very little experience as a Coach/Assistant at a bad program..Another Bad Move by Indiana Athletics. At least OPEN the Job up to some candidates that have actually had some experience. Was the Best Wrestler in Indiana History interviewed? He's an Associate HC and his Resume would run circles around Escobedo.
  17. Iowa staff just arrived in SE PA.
  18. Worst Program Builders right now that should move on. Might be good assistants but over their head on building Program 1- Chandler- MSU has so many other problems on athletic front they can care less about Wrestling and that is Obvious. Program is a Debacle and they hire Head asst. coach whos been there 20 years and a Huge part of their decline..What a Mess..MSU has lost to Eastern Michigan last 2 years..Fire Chandler and Hire EMU staff for an easy upgrade. Or a top HS Coach. 2- Goldman- Indiana is a very good Wrestling State that just keeps fading under Goldman. Enough is enough. Just diffucult to watch a B1G program wrestling in front of 50 people/probably less. Hire somebody that is dedicated to building fans and program in a great wrestling State. Duane might be the worst program Builder in History. 3- Papadotas- When Hofstra brought on Dennis Long Island Wrestling and Hofstra were Strong..it has gone down fast..He doesnt seem to have anything possitive going on the Island and surrounding area. He's been there for 4 full years and not 1 of his recruits has been close to even qualifying for NCAA Tournament. Hofstra and Long Island need to make a change.
  19. I think it's great some AD's are starting to hold Wrestling coaches accountable for the job they do ( Minus Indiana, Michigan State and couple other)...Having the right staff is everything for a Program..I still remember how bad the State University of New Jersey was in wrestling...They were so bad under previous coach they were slated to be cut...RU was wrestling in front of 50 fans that didn't need tickets...There were very few fans that followed Division 1 wrestling in NJ...RU decided to make a change and now Rutgers has 5,000 average paid attendance at meets and thousands of Division 1 Wrestling fans..It's all about the HC!...How many more fans in South Dakota follow D1 Wrestling now since Bono was coach.
  20. Curious as to how much Wisconsin offered him/signed him for..Davis was there 25 years and was only making 104g..I'm sure it has to be much higher then that for him to pack up and leave SDS..What did he make ad SDS?
  21. Great job by Nicky Gravy! Can't wait to see him on the podium next season. He's been close..Next season he'll get it done! https://www.onthebanks.com/2018/3/21/17144110/nick-gravina-earns-record-setting-fourth-all-academic-big-ten-recognition-rutgers-wrestling
