IU worked by Purdon't

Recommended Posts

As I said, they got worked Friday night in Bloomington by Illinois! Illinois forfeited a weight, and Indiana won a match by decision. That's two wins for the weekend, of home dual wrestling! By the way, Tony has the Boilermakers on the up swing. The boys are really getting after it this year. More Purdue fans in the place than Indiana Sunday, pitiful.

Unfortunately, there seem to be a few programs in the Big Ten that could use a shot in the arm. I don't know what the answer is. It could be different issues at different schools. However, I do think that if the AD of a particular school feels that the coach is too long in the tooth and the program has consistently under performed for a number of years, he/she should step up and create some change.

Iowa St. seems to have done this, so we'll see how that program looks a few years down the road.

Purdue is a fun team to watch this season. They have tons of solid talent and are mostly younger wrestlers. They won't make much noise at NCAAs this year, but in 2 years or so, they could have 3ish AAs. Top 10 in two years I think is a reasonable target for them. 

 

They also have a pretty fun style to watch.

No quit in them, dual started with HWT. And PU back up hammered Fletcher Miller for Indiana. Then it was off to the races for The boilers 125 Welch pinned Oliver. I can really see a good coaches influence taking hold of the program. Lets hope the elite Indiana HS wrestlers take some notice.

I have more or less defended Coach Goldman on here, but this year has done me in. I remember after Oliver's freshman year thinking he was going to be Indiana's next truly solid 125.  Instead he has, like so many others, digressed.  I truly is time for a new coaching staff and overhaul.

E mail The Indiana  president, McRobbie, if you would like a change.. He will respond and is very approachable. If you truly would like a change. I encourage all on here for the sake of a D1 and BIG wrestling program to do the same. Lets see if someone besides me sending messages will make a difference.

Thanks, and anyone else want to contribute, it would be very helpful to a D1 program and an elite University. I know  a lot of posters on here are thinking, why help a potential foe in the sport, but as a die hard wrestling fan, the competition in this sport is what makes it special. Not just one dominant team , but a lot of good programs to keep the wrestling world alive. Drop the president of Indiana University  McRobbie an e- mail, to get Indiana University back to respectability. Some one smarter than me could post his address.
