    The Hawkeye Report is having a hard time accepting that their projected starter lost to a mid-ranked high school kid.

    Rumor has it, Tom and Terry Brands had to wrestle off for a spot once.  They settled it in the womb though.  Terry won and kicked Tom out and forced him to move up a weight class.

    MNRodent got a reaction from Idaho in Anticipate Lineups for 21-22   
    They weren't wrestle-offs.  Just practice matches with no ref, scoring, or out of bounds marks, and one running clock for everyone.
    Roberts, I believe wrestled Blockhus first and I think Theo Cha second.  He looked solid.

    Well Dan didn’t have the grades for medical school, was too small to for professional wrestling and mixed martial arts didn’t exist.

    MNRodent got a reaction from HurricaneWrestling2 in Which programs need a coaching change?   
    The Gophers were 7-2 last year with only losses to Neb. and Iowa and were around #7-10 all year in most of the rankings.  Eggum's first recruiting class since being named head coach (Steveson, Lee, McKee, etc.) are just hitting their stride.  Since then recruiting has been solid (except for maybe 2019), and most needs have been addressed.  Also, an outstanding practice facility has been built and an RTC has been developed with a full time coach.  Things are looking up in Gopher-land!

    Are Feldman and Carroll doomed to be tweeners in college?  Last I heard Carroll was planning on being 197 and Feldman a Hwt.  Carroll said in an interview recently that he was 5' 10-3/4" tall.  As much as these two have already filled out, I can't see them getting a lot taller.

    The vaccine is as safe as aspirin and it'll help keep this global pandemic from becoming even worse than it already is.
    People freaked out about the 12 US Military that died in Kabul today (understandably, and god rest their souls.) Yet - today - 13 people died from COVID - just in Minnesota. It's shameful that we don't do our best to prevent these deaths.
    To try our best - vaccination is a how we get there.
    To not try our best is shameful.

    Minnesota’s young nucleus(8 of this years projected starters have at least three years of eligibility left, 9 depending on who goes at 133.)

    125- Pat McKee 3 more years
    133-Troy Spratley top 20 recruit Class of 2022
    141-Aaron Nagao top 25 recruit-5 years
    149-Michael Blockhus 3 more years, Chittum top 2 recruit 2023
    157-Brayton Lee 3 more years
    165-Andrew Sparks 5 more years. When Lee pinned him Sparks had just tore his ligament in his knee.
    174-Jared Krattiger 3 more years
    184-Isaiah Salazar top 30 recruit 5 more years, split starts with Webster last year and had nice wins.
    197-Gavin Nelson top 5 recruit 2023, current starter Joles has 3 more years.
    285-Bennett Tabor top 25 recruit and #1 heavyweight recruit in class of 2021

    This doesn’t factor in Tagen Jamison, Vance Vombaur, Drew Roberts, Marco Polanco or Hunter Lyden who are all top 60ish recruits that will be fighting for lineups. Probably some others I am forgetting.

    Also have some other high profile recruits showing interest in class of 2022 and 2023.

    Also teams are evaluated on how they perform three days in March. Right or wrong we all know that. MN is a top ten program.

    Don't you know that if a hometown wrestler doesn't sign with the hometown team then the hometown team didn't recruit him? I read it on the internet. 
    Besides....why would you NOT want to wrestle here...

    MNRodent got a reaction from WresFan89 in Minnesota Recruiting Class   
    "Old school" and "Finesse" are kind of subjective terms and can mean different things to different people.  What I have noticed in the coaching and recruiting is a preference towards the "short offense".  By "short offense" I mean lots of hand fighting, head snapping, shots from in close, front heads, drags, and re-shots.  This has really been noticable since after the 2015 class :(  and makes sense because Eggum and Becker both wrestled this way.  I would put Lee, Steveson, McKee, Gliva, Kattiger, Sparks, Salazar, Carlson, Blockhus, Bergeland, Nelson, Chittum, Spratley, Jamison, Tabor, Lyden, Roberts, and others in this category.

    Historically great classes Minnesota has had were 2003 and 2008. 2003 class was slaughtered by injuries Schlatter, KISH, Reiter and had Koz transfer. 2008 class was a complete bust with Mason and Disney transferring, Deitchler being injured and Geiger failing out. Good recruiting numbers mean little if health isn’t maintained and you don’t get guys who fit the program culture. Historically we have done well with guys who were big into the weigh room who weren’t necessarily top 10 recruits such as Steinhaus, Nelson, Schiller, Pike, Volkmann, Lewis, Hartung, Davids and Eggum

    Everyone should go aggressively after PSU commits, to take Cael’s eye off the ball of stealing other teams commits.
