  1. They said Assad missed weight by .1 and that Storr was a skin issue. Michigan was already light on depth with their redshirts, and have been hammered by injuries. 149, 165 and 184 were all second or third string guys today. Tough season. Supposedly Embree will be back soon and obviously Storr. Fingers crossed for Silva. Not sure what the latest is on him.
  2. That Track screenshot means he's not yet certified. Bormet talked about Silva after the Black Knight Invite today, said he's focusing on academics at the moment. https://www.flowrestling.org/events/6562225-2019-black-knight-invite/videos?playing=6602959
  3. Perhaps the ability to pull HS recruits to secondary to coaching freestyle to their current and postgrad wrestlers. I’d think elite HS freestylers will know his name. I saw somewhere McHenry commented on it.
  4. Peoples’ trouble with this is that Ashnault did return his freshman year to wrestle the National Collegiate Open. So, the injury was not in fact season ending. That should have disqualified him from the medical hardship. Unless they’re looking at something different or they’re making subjective decisions. Because objectively he doesn’t fit the criteria for a sixth year. The NCAA needs to be more transparent when granting these apparent exceptions to its own rules.
  5. We all understand that you were trying to be sarcastic and funny. You just weren't.
  6. The guy dislocated his elbow in his last match at Big Tens to end his college career. Let's crack jokes about something else.
  7. Michigan's attendance suffers pretty badly when they go head-to-head with home hockey games. The athletic department closes down the lot that serves both facilities for hockey big wigs, so there's nowhere to park. So, when it's 10 degrees outside, a lot of folks just stay home and watch it online. The Wisconsin dual was similar. Others are not. You asked for a reason.... that's the reason. I wouldn't put that on the coaching staff.
  8. What's the story on Ashnault? I saw on the Rutgers board that he had surgery this summer and will "possibly" be able to wrestle this season. Seems like that should be a bigger topic.
  9. Micic didn't get the Big Ten waiver because Pariano was fired, he got it for the same reason that Pariano was fired.
  10. Silva's two future workout partners, Drew Mattin and Ben Freeman, just won out in Fargo. That's a pretty good lightweight haul Michigan has coming in.
  11. Very exciting prospect for Michigan fans. Looking forward to following him this season. Any chance he and RBY would face each other?
  12. If he does this, ie steps on the mat and defaults, does the conference keep his AQ at 125?
  13. We're calling kids busts in December of their freshman year? Tough crowd.
  14. He's going to sit behind Coon next year anyway, so they might as well use him this year instead of wasting another year for him. That seems like it would be in his best interest.
  15. I don't believe the Olympic redshirt has anything to do with this. That's simply the explanation for what he's doing this season. With the waiver, he's able to compete immediately but isn't - because he's using an Olympic redshirt. I'm guessing the Big Ten's decision to give Micic the waiver is based on the same reason that Northwestern decided to fire Pariano (and the same reason Micic wanted to transfer out in the first place).
