  1. There are only so many big ten jobs out there and the fact this is an east coast one (proximity to NJ, NY, OH. PA) makes it even more intriguing.    They are likely going to get a very good coach based on what I’m hearing.    It’ll be fun to watch the program develop with anyone of the finalists who are in the mix 

  2. I think Kolat already declined to move forward with the interview process .  Beyond that,  there seems to be a ton of rumors and conflicting information out there.   Ive heard  Espo interviewed  from a few people & also that he didn’t apply from some other good sources    I heard Scott Moore declined and more recently that he’s still in limbo, waiting to hear back. I’ve heard about many who had phone interviews but not a lot about coaches who made it to campus    There are several coaches who I know may be interested but don’t want it  to get out that they are so are being intentionally deceptive (which I totally understand)   I think I know who’s most likely but could be wrong so won’t put it out there and see it somehow work against UMD   Nothing would surprise me at this point 


  3. If UMD could ever keep the top kids home then they’d really have a chance to flourish. The state of Maryland is probably just a little above average overall but they have produced some real elite kids over the past decade. You’re right, Mchenry is more than likely goto PSU as well. UMD landed Bannister who has had an up and down career and Llopez who never set a foot on campus. The last one before that was asper who was a stud but he graduated from HS over 10 years ago. Beyond that, no In-state studs have stayed in state. It’s frustrating as a fan.

  4. Terps are hurting on the recruiting trail more than anything else. There's obviously more to the story than that but if you can't recruit at the same level as your peers, it's going to be darn hard to compete against them. They've lost momentum from the good run they has 7-10 yrs ago There are so many new & ambitious coaches these days, that the competitive landscape is greater than ever. The state of Maryland is starting to produce some elite kids and McCoy needs to figure out how to keep some home. He needs a kid like Brooks to sign on and hope others follow. Personality wise he's more laid back so it's hard to compete against some of the coaches who have big personalities and are to some degree full of ****

  5. Jason- your analysis is correct. I'd imagine a press release will go out in the next week or so. Obviously the current administration wants to do this as quietly as possible. The AD wants to use wrestling's money and give it to teams that can win a conference championship. The AD failes to acknowledge that Anderson has had 2 division 2 national champions (jj Jackson & Kareef Robertson) in the past ten years plus a D2 ncaa runner up last year (Sean turner). I'd think national champion is more prestigious than conference champ but what do I know.

  6. D2 Anderson University (South Carolina) to drop wrestling. The AD told the team last night. I hope the wrestling community can express their disappointment with this decision by emailing the AD and President. The AD told the team he wanted to focus on conference championships and wrestling is not in a conference. It's a typical lame excuse. The AD at Anderson, Billy D'Andrea was the assistant AD at Clemson when they dropped the program there so there is history with this guy.
