"What's Cooperman up to now? " Open first link in first post.

"Can you elaborate? "  I'm going to have to issue a trigger warning to the Cornellians, but long story short. Coop left LU directly for CU, top recruit Grey followed. Only 3 folks (Coop, Grey & Koll) will ever know what really happened, but Strobel canceled LU-CU series for 2 years in protest (disgust?).

Again, I'm a Coop fan. His two 3rd place finishes were rock solid. He could never get past Teyon Ware. Coop was solid in all 3 positions, but Ware was lightning quick.

If I recall one of the years he lost in first round and wrestled back for AA. But don't trust my memory.

What's Cooperman up to now?  Always been highly regarded as a coach, kind of lost track of him. 

Cooperman just opened up his own club in Mahwah, NJ.............CoopTrained.  Coaches include Cooperman, Austin Schafer (Oklahoma St), and Nick Gravina (Rutgers).

Glad to hear this.  Cooperman has spent a fair amount of time in Ithaca, first as an assistant coach, and then as a coach at the RTC.   I think Coop has had even more impact as a coach and mentor than as a competitor.

Yes.  I think within the next few years his club will be a national power-house.  His energy and passion (let alone his technical knowledge) is tough to match.
