    grappler6 got a reaction from flyingcement in Which programs need a coaching change?   
    The fun part is we get to find out!

    I also love how Gable is a non factor in discussing the state of MN’s staff and program. He succeeded at MN. Can also listen to the words of somebody much smarter than you or I.

    Based on people arguing about it in this thread and how fired up you are about it, clearly it is controversial.

    The staff that just coached an Olympic Champion that’s still in college? Also the same staff that has two of the top 5 overall recruits committed in the class of 2023? A young nucleus on the current team as well? I think MN is in a good spot.

    Eggum was in Gable's corner in Tokyo for all his matches, including the finals against Petriashvilli.  He went all the way over to Japan so that Gable could completely ignore him?

    Minnesota’s young nucleus(8 of this years projected starters have at least three years of eligibility left, 9 depending on who goes at 133.)

    125- Pat McKee 3 more years
    133-Troy Spratley top 20 recruit Class of 2022
    141-Aaron Nagao top 25 recruit-5 years
    149-Michael Blockhus 3 more years, Chittum top 2 recruit 2023
    157-Brayton Lee 3 more years
    165-Andrew Sparks 5 more years. When Lee pinned him Sparks had just tore his ligament in his knee.
    174-Jared Krattiger 3 more years
    184-Isaiah Salazar top 30 recruit 5 more years, split starts with Webster last year and had nice wins.
    197-Gavin Nelson top 5 recruit 2023, current starter Joles has 3 more years.
    285-Bennett Tabor top 25 recruit and #1 heavyweight recruit in class of 2021

    This doesn’t factor in Tagen Jamison, Vance Vombaur, Drew Roberts, Marco Polanco or Hunter Lyden who are all top 60ish recruits that will be fighting for lineups. Probably some others I am forgetting.

    Also have some other high profile recruits showing interest in class of 2022 and 2023.

    Also teams are evaluated on how they perform three days in March. Right or wrong we all know that. MN is a top ten program.

    They have 3 top 10 finishes in 5 tournaments under Eggum, so not sure where you get the idea they haven't come close to being top 10.  
    They were 7th this year.  They haven't topped that since 2014 (Jrob's 3rd to last team).

    Gable loves it at Minnesota and he has everything he needs to be successful right here at home.

    NLWC is a great program, but the transplants Gilman and Snyder achieved very high levels of success elsewhere as well prior to coming over.

    The moral of story is that the elite can find high levels of success at a handful or two of programs. NLWC isn’t necessarily the answer for everyone.
