    When was the last time Michigan challenged for a national title in football?

    Agreed that IU needs a change at the head coaching position. Same thing happened at MSU, but Minkel left under his own terms stating that Chandler would take over for him, rather bringing in new blood. Hinkel left Purdue and they put out a search and got Ersland. Still finished 12th this year in the Big 10s.
     
    If Goldman was to leave/be removed, who would you get....
     
    Mark Cody
    Damion Hahn
    Donny Pritzlaff
    Andrew Howe
    Casey Cunningham
     
    Unless, as an AD, I could land one of these individuals, I would hesitate to remove Goldman.

    This is why you don't poke the bear.  White Collar Willie does his homework and backs up his rankings with facts and results.  You would have better luck questioning CP's rankings where there are more holes than a brick of swiss cheese.

    Synon has a nice body of work from before college and was very underrated in high school.  He was always overshadowed in weight classes featuring kids like Eddie Klimara (OK State 125), Danny Sabatello (Purdue 133), and Mech Spraggins (ASU 141).  He DNP'd at state as a Junior losing the the 3rd and 4th placers and took 3rd place at state senior year losing to Spraggins in the Championship bracket and then beating him in the 3rd/4th place match.  Synon had quite a few accolades in Freestyle and Greco as well.  I really like his upside going forward at Missouri.  There is something to be said about a kid who has always been very close to standing on that top step of the podium but not yet achieved it.  Those kids stay hungry and motivated in my opinion longer than the kid who has won a ton of titles.  They still have something to prove.
     
    An interesting side note: Spraggins is the only person this season who has scored a takedown on Logan Stieber.  Those who haven't seen him wrestle throughout his career don't see his patented "lull them to sleep and then BOOM blast double" coming.  Spraggins used that strategy to defeat his opponent in the Team USA vs IL All Star dual after his senior year.  I think it was Mitch Bengston (NDSU) he beat in that dual 8-5 scoring 3 or 4 takedowns.  One of the most explosive athletes I've personally ever witnessed step foot on a wrestling mat.
