    crossface21 got a reaction from lost in Stanford Not Cutting Sports   
    I'm glad it's not getting cut, but what a bunch of pricks. The program has been gutted-no coach, wrestlers are gone, gonna have to start from scratch. Then in a few years when they are still trying to build it back up they'll cut it again and cite lack of competitiveness as the reason.

    There are 2 schools in West Bend, East and West. East is the superior team.  The previous head coach was a good coach and his son was the 132 state champ this past season. They have a new head coach this coming season. They wrestle in the North Shore Conference which has a couple of good teams(Slinger, Port Washington, WBE, Nicolet on the rise), but they have some very high level individual talent in the conference as well. In the past 4-5 years the conference has boasted D1 recruits such as Parker Keckiesen(Nicolet) and Dajun Johnson(Whitefish Bay) both to Northern Iowa, Beau Breske(Hartford) a few years back went to Nebraska and then Wisconsin. Currently, they have a couple that may get some D1 offers,  many other wrestlers that will be getting looks for D2 and D3 as well. The improvement of the conference in the last 10-15 years is significant because of realignment and the proliferation of wrestling schools. It's right in the backyard of Askren Wrestling Academy and Ringers which both produce lots of state placers and champs.

    I'm not going to hijack this thread and make it about P.E., but as an Elementary Physical Education teacher(not gym teacher) I can tell you it's much more than just rolling out a ball and blowing a whistle when it's time for the class to leave. May not seem like a a lot of work because we do get to play a lot of games, so I guess some might be jealous that we get to run around outside or in a big gymnasium and play games while others are stuck in a room teaching math? But there's lot more that go into it than just playing games. That's not what it is from the beginning of class till the end. There are different models of teaching P.E. and to each his own. But I can say being at the elementary level there is a lot of motor skill development being taught, lots of mechanics, evaluations of students that may need OT or PT, etc. In addition, it's a great class for teaching teamwork, sportsmanship, problem solving, etc. As for the PE teacher that just comes up with activities and then wrangles them up, that's the exact kind of PE teacher that gives us a bad rap. 
    And I think the chances of their being HS or college wrestling this year are less than 10%.

    UW-La Crosse in Division 3 announced a suspension in all travel last night about 10:30, including all spring break competitions and the NCAA Championships for wrestling in Iowa and Track and Field in Virginia. Pretty big outcry and protests this morning. Early this afternoon they let up on the travel ban and allowed the teams to travel. UWL has 5 wrestling in Cedar Rapids this weekend.

    LOL David is a friend of mine and he isn't giving up his olympic dream to come coach Wisconsin.  That being said if he was in the running he would be my #1 choice.

    That being said here are your choices:
    Bormet(although unlikely to leave MI as he will assume the head job soon)
    Bono(Psyched for the opportunity would do a great job)
    Schwab
    Snyder(Would fit in well in Madison)
    Hahn
    Pritzlaff
    Luke Becker
    Me 

    Cunningham and Kolat not very interested.
