As much as I’m not a fan, Franklin is the only one over 5 mil a year that has “earned” it.  Day should be in the 5 mil a year category sooner than later one would think and it will be earned.

I too was at that 64-13 debacle.  I however drank it out of my memory about mid way through the 2nd quarter.  I came out of my blackout at a fraternity party with many hot coeds.  The hosts were good guys regardless of the score of that shit show.  I talked a little shit before the game and they only gave it back to me a little as I think they felt bad for us.  The same guys came to Columbus two years later ranked #4 and went home feeling about the same as we did in 94, even though it wasn’t as bad of a beating.

Hicks and Miller will probably both see offers by mid summer.  Bama is all over Hicks.  I wonder if he’s any relation to Jordan Hicks who went to Texas a few years back?

Riding time is accumulated by the time being in control of your opponent while they are on the mat.  It increments for each wrestler as they are in the “top” position.  If at the end of the match one wrestler has accumulated more than one minute of riding time they are awarded an extra point, only one point at the end of the match.  Example would be a guy taking the other wrestler down and controlling him for 1:25.  Say the second period that wrestler chooses to start on the bottom, the time begins to count down until it builds positive for that wrestler.  If the match ends with either wrestler with plus one minute or more they get a point.

Not Andy but some teams, Iowa and PSU included, sit their top guys to protect them.  If the match could be close and not hamper the overall team score it’s a regular occurrence.  Then come NCAA or B1G tourney time that wrestler can’t be dinged because they didn’t get beat.  Same goes for medically forfeiting.  DeSanto from Iowa took a medical forfeit just as he was locked up in a cradle against PSU’s Roman Bravo Young.  He could have been injured I suppose but it just looked like he was about to get stuck so he cried out so the refs would stop the match.

Sure not in the Stone Age with Mick!  Keeping the staff mostly together is one of the things that has impressed me the most about Day.  We have a very good mix of age and experience to go along with younger maybe more energetic guys that kill it on the recruiting trail.  Then you add back one of the most energized, high intensity assistant coaches in my lifetime and BOOM!  This team should be in the mix for the playoffs every season.

I mentioned this on Twitter but this Maryland squad was pretty terrible.  My understanding is their coach is new and they have a very young team but they gave up in most matches.  Maryland could benefit from recruiting some of the top states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa) guys who aren’t going to the OSU, PSU, and Iowa’s of the wrestling world.
