  1. You know, this was a nice topic about a good wrestler from an average wresting school.  I appreciate the insight about what he needs to do, and even how tough it will be.   So why do we have to go away from it and talk about how great PSU is?  This is a Hillger, Wisconsin, topic so give the guy this at least.

    I’m not going to explain the joke since you don’t even know that medical doctors are MDs and not PhDs.

    Ed.D- practitioners degree, content focused, often no dissertation/thesis required, many for profit online schools offer these degrees. Shaquille O’Neal has one.

    PhD- Doctor of Philosophy in *enter content area*, rigorous research AND content focused, requires dissertation that adds new and unique findings to the content area

    MD- Medical Doctor

    JD- Lawyer

    BTW my PhD is in Educational Research and Evaluation and my BS and two MS degrees are in education, so it must be just because I’m really cool, clown.

    I would be a little careful generalizing Ed,D programs as often, many, and certain people have them?   Most programs now have programs, even PhD programs, on line. Are there stats that show that most don't require thesis?  I have found the opposite. (maybe they were just good schools?)  Also, does Shaq have an education degree, and a masters in education?  Because most programs require that for an Ed.D?    Anyway, like many things I am sure there are great programs and not so great?

    I'll take'em all. We need all the fans we can get.

    I agree!  We all can be bad fans at some point, especially when it is someone close to you.  The worse fans are people who say they are big fans but, never go to matches, never watch matches, know nothing about local, state, or national wrestlers and so on.  And, even then, I would rather have them than haters....

    They don't have men's rowing, only women's.  The report said they couldn't cut any women's sports because of Title IX.  

    According to the report, based on the costs, soccer or baseball were the only other options.   They chose wrestling because it's not in Conference USA and there are less D1 teams.

    Sorry I have been out for a while but the problem I have is, when they went to conference USA I asked the AD about wrestling and he said "In no way will this effect wrestling."

    I'm as confused as anyone about this decision. Was Coach Martin informed about any of this in advance of the AD's statement? Was he given the opportunity to raise funds to maintain the program for the long term? Did the administration consider any sort of request or was the decision already made?

    I'm having trouble understanding how the OP started this thread with a question and that the wrestling community was seemingly caught off guard by this decision. It's not without precedent, but with communication the way it is today, I'm baffled by how this all took place so silently.

    I do not know details but I do know at least assistant coaches had no idea.  They need to pay for the new FB stadium some how?

    Steve Martin is an a-hole, but it's still a horrible decision. I will send an email tomorrow voicing my displeasure. 

    The AD's email is wselig@odu.edu for anyone interested. 

    Was there a large donation or some other reason they are building a $3,000,000 women's volleyball arena? 

    Be warned that he won't give a darn.  When they were switching to conference USA a few years back I was afraid they were going to drop wrestling.  So, I sent him an email asking about it and if we would be notified.  He did respond.  He was a jerk about it and told me it was none of my concern.  (I was a parent of a wrestler).  It was worse than you would expect and I can say here.  I responded to him that if I treated people the way he responded to me, I would lose my job.  He basically responded that he didn't care.  Just a warning.

    Yes.  But The season ending injury must happen in the first half of the season and you must have compete in less than a third of allowable contests. 

    It was impossible to qualify for the NCAA tournament and meet the requirements. 

    This was the idea behind spring sports getting it and winter sports not getting it.  


    Thank you,      How about strange times call for strange solutions?

  8. I am probably missing something as usual, but, why can't they at least allow last season to be a redshirt season if you have one available?  For example, I wrestled all year, I was a national qualifier, (so still wrestling), and the season was forced to stop.  Now I am allowed to say I will take this year as a redshirt year.  If you don't have one, well..... 

  9. Unfortunately I have seen this happen before.  I have also seen the flip side where they decided during the tournament not to wrestle back for a true spot.  The NCAA should have a rule that forces this, one way or the other.  Also, college coaches are terrible at talking to kids about these things.  I don't get why? 

  10. If it is not the NCAA tournament than you are NOT the NCAA champion.

    If anyone puts together a tournament "to see who is the best" that does not mean the winner is the best, or the national champion.  The best that day, maybe if all are there.  NCAA best, no. There is more to winning than just winning.  At the NCAA tournament, your coach plays a big part.  Things are paid for, school is excused, and helped with, food and work outs are monitored and discussed.  There just is a lot of other issues that come into play.
