    I heard he felt it was time.  
    Some might say better late than never. 
    Bad jokes aside, this is going to be a good thing for Michigan, long term.  KJ is a great coach who is linked to some heavy success.

    Mendez posted a pic of the two of them and congratulations.  Mendez has said RTC and olympic aspirations are big to him.  Mendez has spent a decent amount of time with KJ.  Michigan has a three time world and olympic champ, six time world and olympic champ on staff, three Olympians and junior world champ on the roster.  Two of those athletes are from northern indiana.
    This move has to elevate them in the Mendez sweepstakes.

    Great hire, and out of nowhere seemingly.  He's a very strong coach on an individual basis, has great rapport with the current cadet crop. 
    I would have thought he might look for another head coaching opportunity, didn't envision him being on the block for something like this.

    Was the Morgan State coach the guy who used to wear the jacket or vest made out of tiger or leopard skin?
    I saw him coaching at a tournament in the late 70’s, and had to look twice to make sure I was really seeing that!
    There was some history/tradition associated with the jacket. 
    He wore it well and was “styling” for sure!

    Marcus,
    You do the sport no favors when you spout off incorrect stats and figures as if they are gospel. I provided you the exact information you SHOULD be talking about when beating the Title IX drum. I want you to voice your opinion, but I also want you to do it from an educated stance - I disproved two of your claims in two minutes. Others can do the same when you bring that argument to the table.
    I'm glad being educated on an issue and having the factual information to back it up is considered "fancy." 
    It seems you have a rounding error somewhere.

    How do you goat-o-phize about the relative goatness of Fadz, Saitiev, and Sad? I want to say that Sad is a tank and a god of pressure and position. But, Fadz was too, no? Dude could turn shallow single into a 5-point back arch. I want to say that Saitiev is quicksilver fluid. But, doesn't Sad's cartwheel from the whizzer show an equally deep arsenal and isn't it equally slick?

    In my opinion KJ is simply not the big-picture CEO type that is required to run a national program at a high level. That's very different than being an assistant to one of the best CEO's in college wrestling in Sean Bormet though. I think he will excel in this role and be an absolute beast for them on the recruiting trail.

    Minus the one weigh-in issue, seems like this move just helps bolster Michigans recruitment of wrestlers that are also aspiring to wrestle internationally.

    Great interview.  The quote at the end should be on a poster or something.   "It's not easy, but it's also not impossible."

    JB is rare among wrestlers in that he thinks, A LOT, about everything.  What's more, is he's willing to talk about it and let people know what he's thinking about.  In doing so, there were a few years there where from the outside it didn't seem like he was all-in, with talk of what's next, should he hang it up, can he still be the best, etc.  
    Listening to him today, I don't get that sense at all, which might worry me a little bit if I was Kyle Dake.  Granted, by the time those trials roll around JB will be nearly 36 and Dake will just be hitting cadet eligibility.

    A lot of successful wrestlers comport themselves quite well.  Narcissistic is way overused, and misunderstood, these days.
    However, there is no question Henson’s track record allows one to question not only his loyalty but whether he has the capacity to work well with others.

    Probably because he lacks loyalty to the highest degree, he has had 9 stops. Only a couple years at each. Most wrestlers at the very top of the mountain have the same quality, narcissistic

    About 3 years ago, I started talking up Jordan Burroughs, not just as a great wrestler, but a great ambassador for our sport.  He has grown so much on many levels, in wrestling, technically, training wise, strategy wise and more.  But he has also grown so much behind a microphone, breaking down, not only his wrestling, but his day to day plans and his family life.  What a great role model, great human being .....very special!!!  Congratulations on #6, and #9 total World and Olympic Medals.  Not sure he'd want to pursue this....it would still take a while, but American Bruce Baumgartner holds the World Record for most World/Olympic medals with 13....just dangling it out there....lol.  Bruce has 5 Gold, 5 Silver and 3 Bronze.  Perhap my favorite interview with Jordan is "Coffee with Jordan Burroughs" from Flo......great example of what I'm talking about....https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6250629-coffee-with-jordan-burroughs
