Yes, I feel the same way. These guys have been grinding for 10-15 years to be the best. Wrestling is like few other sports - just you and the other guy. Everything is measured and under a microscope. They put their heart and soul into this and, while on the edge of a Natty, got it taken away. Best of luck to them - we really enjoyed watching them.

I wonder if weight class has any effect on decision. As a former wrestler. you know certain weight classes just have more competition. Not taking away from Lee, a great wrestler, I don’t think there are as many college kids who can wrestle at the lowest weight classes. True HW (over 225) tends to be like that too. Just more at the middle to about 195. With the bulk of wrestlers in the middle weights, the competition is tougher just by pure numbers. Although Lee probably would have still won his class up a class or 2. He is that good. JMHO

I think the issue was closing down the recruiting before he had public verbal or more. My understanding is that he told some other recruits that we had our guys and there was no room for them. Once the silent commits reneged, he had no where to go. But I still don’t know if it was his fault. But, as always, we don’t know the real facts. We do know that he missed on top guys for a couple of years.

I don’t know what they’re doing but they seem to have a very loyal team and players that really enjoy playing in their system. Say what you will, they got something working for them and it must be a family attitude there too. I’m guessing they tend to get a lot of very religious guys. And there is that supplement (drug) thing too.

I think most top recruits would prefer the OSU approach, but do they have enough time to do this with 100 or so recruits to get the best 25 recruits? Is there a group that gets invited in on this basis and others that don’t make the cut for this treatment? Anyway, Coach Day’s approach seems to work fine. Obviously, the Clemson approach is working too.

Good match, some tough loses. Tough environment with Iowa wrestling the equal to Kentucky BB. Our lighter weights looked weak on their feet giving up easy tds. Our inexperience was clear. Iowa will be strong again next year with almost everyone back and we will lose our two #1s. I think the task for this team will be the 3,4 and 5 place at nationals. A 3rd would be a great finish. Need Sasso and Jordan to continue upward.

This team was totally lost tonight, sleepwalking thru the game. Coach needed to get some energy in the game the last 10 minutes. Players didn’t play and coach H didn’t coach. They better get it together quick or this will be another disappointing season.

So so disappointed. The targeting call changed the entire game. The overturned fumble hurt. But the Bucks had issues all night. FGs instead of TDS , no long balls all night ( where were our long routes?), a few dropped passes, O line didn’t dominate, injury to JK, no adjustments for C QB runs , poor open field tackling, and some questionable play call (including few quick hits over middle to slow rush). We played our worse game of the year and were in until the end. But another year of  missing the championship. Why do we have one of the best programs With great records but feel like we under achieve for our talent - now in 4 of the last 6 seasons. I will always love the bucks but it hurts.
