    jp157 reacted to Lurker in How Much Money   
    Spent 20 years of my working career in wrestling, never competed past the junior college/junior international level, never made a lot of money at it.  But man, traveled the world, front row seats to the best action on the planet, tons and tons of friends, experiences, and memories.  Lots of stress and frustrations along the way, but wouldn't trade that 20 years for a lottery ticket.

    That was after injuries, though.  His freshman year he scored in bunches.  Then, he was hurt early into his 2nd season and pretty much wrestled injured the rest of his career.  Even injured, he had world class positioning and defense, so he kept winning off that, but his lateral movement and explosion suffered greatly!

    I really wish more had this attitude to development. Or at least minimized the emphasis on kids competitions.

    That's what I was thinking. Especially since he ended up retearing the surgically repaired one against Mueller anyways so it's not a stretch to imagine that he thinks it's not worth the bother, atleast maybe not until after next year? Idk. Im a big fan so I'll cheer him on no matter what he chooses to do, but, yeah, makes me nervous.

    To be clear it’s my observation not me justifying. I actually lean that way too believe it or not. Especially with my athletes. I’m just cynical and pragmatic when it comes to evaluating things. agree that he shouldn’t need to be babysat.
    Also, when you run a program for Hs kids you have to do the babysitting and teaching to one degree or another. The more successful college coaches deliberately go after kids they don’t need to babysit (for the most part, Hendricks being a clear exception) and in college+ they shouldn’t need to be. 
     
    That being said.. I do think a more.. organized and consistent approach than Lindlands would help LOL.
    A decent but not great athlete, who’s a constant headache, of mine asked if he could do well in college wrestling. When I was done laughing I explained to him no college coach would put up with him the way I did unless he magically won Fargo that summer.. it got me a week of good practice out of him

    Yeah I agree. 
    The allure would be relative proximity to home, and the fact its a Big Ten School. Outside of that idk if there would be any interest from him, or for him by the admin.

    Having read that article, I think John Reader would be a sneaky strong pick. He’s been coaching for a long time, was a killer in college at 174, and might be at the point of running his own program.

    I also think it’s dubious he’d be the best to handle the more.. I guess “straight laced” aspects of being a head coach. Not a diss. Just not his strengths

    jp157 got a reaction from Stl in Olympic Training Center Resident Athletes   
    According to some old timers, one of the reasons the RTCs gained popularity so quickly was because “allegedly”.. USA wrestling would have favorites and use the training at the OTC to scout for and give other advantages to their favorite. As well as providing more overseas opportunities.
     
    The only person I’ve seen out that in writing is Schalle.. but many people think he is.. “off” as a person. He is not the only one I’ve heard it from though. 
     
    Take that as you will. It’s a circumstance designed for the word allegedly

    How is Dake ahead of Sadulaev....?? I’m genuinely curious about this logic. I genuinely want to know if it’s anything more than fan boy ism. 
     
    If it’s because he finally beat Burroughs.. Jordan had only gotten bronze in last 2 world championships. And was at the age most pro athletes call off.. 32-33 years old. 
     
    That aside. I’d like to know how Dakes two non Olympic weight titles not only match but beat Sadulaev’s... FIVE senior golds.. one senior silver, and two cadet titles...
