Mattin would not have changed the score any way, Foley has majored him twice at least in their multiple meetings and I believe Foley majored Mattin this year (not 100% sure it was this season though). Good win, MSU is the Rutgers Football of Wrestling.

01/06/2019 - 8:53am ASU 165 Josh Shields is…

ASU 165 Josh Shields is ranked #11 in the country, I assume that was the “more shocking” upset, however Massa still just has not been the same since the the 2017 CKLV invite. 

And for the love of God you don’t play wrestling. I’m not the grammar police, but in the Wrestling community saying “play Wrestling” or “players” etc is the equivalent of saying baseball players hit a touchdown. Just trying to help you out. You don’t play wrestling you wrestle, they are wrestlers not players. Thank you for the update, hopefully Lewan gets healthy and Pantaleo slides in at 149 going forward

*wrestler not player, you don’t play wrestling.

And I believe Ready was average, IIRC he has a victory over a top 20 opponent this year and without looking would bet he has a decent record but he definitely doesn’t stand out. Wrestling in the B1G is extremely competitive, even the open tournaments Michigan wrestled in usually have 2 or 3 nationally ranked wrestlers in each weight. Parris has without a doubt been the best heavyweight on the roster however high school wrestling is very different than college wrestling, and there is a learning curve. Parris also came in as a former high school 220 so there is always injury concern and weight that needs to be added to preform at 285

01/04/2019 - 9:00am Several Freshmen redshirt…

Several Freshmen redshirt part of the season to get acclimated to the college level. Spencer Lee (Iowa national champion at 125 and former #1 overall recruit) did the same last year.

12/29/2018 - 10:41pm Correct, Pantaleo and Paris…

Correct, Pantaleo and Paris made the semi-final tomorrow afternoon. Silva, Freeman and Davison need one more win to place. As for Micah, news probably hasn’t hit him yet but when it does I bet he has nightmares about Pantaleo’s blast double for weeks

12/29/2018 - 6:20pm Probably right but weight…

Probably right but weight change is not exactly front page news. If Pantaleo makes the midlands finals and downs Kolodzik that timingwill be good

12/29/2018 - 4:00pm Agreed, Malik Amine was the…

Agreed, Malik Amine was the obvious weak spot of this team. I have said before and will say again, Pantaleo at 149 is a NCAA champion contender. Hope to see him take on nationally ranked #1 Kolodzik in the midlands finals.

According to Sam Webb there were some racially charged comments at UGA and that might allow immediate playing time

11/24/2018 - 3:48pm Emotions are high right now…

Emotions are high right now and it’s no one person’s fault. But I’m going to single out Zach Gentry and highlight 3 plays that dicked us. 1. Dropped TD pass(obviously took 7points off the board) 2. Dropped pass for a first down on 3rd and long low pass, but tough shit it hit him square in the hands. Following play OSU blocks punt for TD. 3. Third major drop of the day. Next play OSU intercepts Patterson throwing the ball away. Again no one persons fault but Gentry stamped a lot of grief on this game. Now I’m going to keep drinking until I pass out and hide my internet connections so I don’t make a bigger fool of myself.

11/23/2018 - 9:40am MAC schools were only a few…

MAC schools were only a few of his options, he has interest from the Ivy League and as much as Michigan is a top tier education, so is the Ivy League. So he can get a world class education AND be an immediate major contributor. That’s much greener than he would have seen here. Now his Crystal Balls seem to be going towards Cincinnati for now and while it isn’t Michigan level of school or football, it’s still greener for him to play and get a good education.

11/22/2018 - 11:02pm Greener pastures is kind of…

Greener pastures is kind of a relative term there don’t you think? Greener pastures as in a better overall team...most likely not as Michigan sits at #4 in the country with the #1 defense in the country. However greener for the recruit is definitely possible with several options. Say he comes here and we net either Harrison or Karalaftis and believe me I firmly believe we get both but for arguments sake say we just get one. Currently Woods is listed as a DE, so he most likely sits behind Harrison/Karalaftis, Kwity Paye, Possibly Luigi Villain, and likely one or two other DE commits in his class. Some speculate he is going to grow into a DT which okay but he’s still most likely behind Mazi Smith and Hinton in his class, Dwumfour, Solomon, and probably a few others. He could go to a school like a MAC school and be an immediate major contributor. In that case he found a greener pasture getting more playing time than he’d likely see in his first few years at Michigan. 

11/18/2018 - 10:44pm Well, Colorado just fired…

Well, Colorado just fired their coach, USC looks to do the same, Oregon already looks full at WR. Things seem to be lining up for Michigan, Washington is still a major threat and most expect he ends up at USC  but I think this is more a 3 horse race. He’d have to build new relationships with new coaches at Colorado, and presumably USC.

Lehigh was ranked #6 btw so this is quite the victory

11/11/2018 - 11:58am Even if Brohm doesn’t leave…

Even if Brohm doesn’t leave Purdue this year, as far as Karalaftis is concerned, how long before he does? Florida St is a tire fire for the second season in a row, hard to imagine them being good next year, USC looks awful this year and may fire their coach by years end. There will always be greener pastures (compared to Purdue) calling Brohm offering a big contract, better recruiting pool, etc. This bodes well for us. Iin my opinion, seems like the table is being set to swoop in and take both Karalaftis and Zach Harrison

Brice Marich has now followed suit

10/28/2018 - 11:09pm Honestly we may have seen…

Honestly we may have seen wrestle off #2 and 3 meaning Pantaleo won the non public wrestle off, Lewan winning today evened it up and then Pantaleo took the rubber match. That is a common practice however there’s no real way of telling

Also with a second wrestle off is Pantaleo vs. Lewan

Apparently there was a second 149 wrestle off between Amine and Lamantia of which Amine wins 2-1

Parris secures a 11-2 major decision and caps the Maize and Blue inter squad scrimmage. Lots of excitement for this team!

Granted I did expect Embree to dominate the bout, I feel like he has All American potential after watching this match. Especially with Nickal moving up to 197

Embree with a 15-0 first period tech fall, that was thoroughly impressive.

10/28/2018 - 2:50pm Lewan with a big time…

Lewan with a big time shocker taking out Pantaleo 2-1 after Pantaleo had to use injury time. Impressive that a true Freshman just took out a returning 5th year senior All American. Maybe now Pantaleo would consider dropping to 149 more seriously

Amine wins a close match with a 3-1 decision

Mattin leads 5-0 (with a locked in riding time point). I am quite impressed with Mattin through this bout, he really is backing up his #12 ranking. I did not give Mattin enough credit it seems. 

10/28/2018 - 12:38pm You’re very welcome! Thank…

You’re very welcome! Thank you for reading. I expect Bormet to do very well as Head Coach, with Cameron Amine committed already and Facundo a local product that hopefully remains home it looks like Bormet will have a lot to work with going forward. Another top 5 finish is likely this year, too 3 if some new faces produce.

10/28/2018 - 12:34pm A bit of bad news 141 is now…

A bit of bad news 141 is now a bout between Storr and Mars rather than Silva so I expect Storr to thoroughly dominate. Looks like the plan may be to redshirt Silva this year and go into next year with a line up that looks something like McHenry(125), Micic(133), Silva(141), Storr(149). The 174 bout is off as well, while I understand that one a little more (Amine is the unquestioned starter and is getting ready for a college wrestling classic held in Denver in early/mid November) it still would have been nice to see him compete. That is all the updates so far and was released via the Michigan Twitter handle a half hour ago

10/28/2018 - 10:23am Thank you for reading, I…

Thank you for reading, I have wanted to write one of these for years. Looking at Pantaleo, he looks like a full 157 and I think he looks much happier at a higher weight. I doubt he could drop the weight at this point.

10/20/2018 - 6:14pm Can’t  see for sure because…

Can’t  see for sure because it’s behind a VIP wall but it looks as though Michigan picked up a Crystal Ball for Zach Harrison from some guy named Sean Scherer. Michigan jumped to 6% for Harrison in the CB. Didn’t think it was thread worthy but def comment worthy

Sean Bormet was a coach on the cadet world team. He’s young, well liked and intense. Program is in good hands going forward

08/13/2018 - 9:45pm Without seeing the film, I…

Without seeing the film, I highly doubt it is a slant corner. Slants being three steps up and breaking in at an angle and corners breaking sharply at an angle opposite a slant would not make any sense. There is a “Sluggo” meaning slant and go which would be a 3 step forward, 3step at an angle in, and then breaking down the field. There is also a “Post-Corner route in which the receiver runs 7-10yds vertical breaks towards the goal post for 3 steps and then to the back corner of the end zone. I played all four years of high school ball and did grad work at Akron U (not exactly football blue blood I understand) but I have never come across a “slant-corner” I guess it could just be a terminology difference, but a corner break after a slant break would literally either run your receiver square into the defender, force a complete stop and start making it too long of a route, or round the receiver’s route so much that it would not be effective. Being that this was Zach Gentry (6’7” above 240) I highly doubt they have him attempt that. Post-Corner is more likely due to Zach being a TE and matching up mostly with Safety/LB types and a Post-Corner is known as a safety killer. Just my 2 cents.

This may be the least excited post of its kind that I have ever read.

Based on his celebration when he downed (I believe heinselmen, an OSU signee) he is Kurt “Money Dance” McHenry. He was #2 on Flowrestling celebrations list

03/27/2018 - 11:52pm With Kellen Russel on staff

With Kellen Russel on staff he has some NJ pull being a Blair Academy alum. Though you do make a good point, Jersey always has some good wrestlers. I’m keeping an eye on the Mastrogiavani brothers currently on the Blair team and Bergen Catholic was #1 in the nation for some time this year. I still would love to crack into that St. Paris Graham wrestling room, seems Wisconsin and OSU have the inside tracks there.

Hmmm they couldn’t find a kicker...Guess they were looking for Volunteers

03/04/2018 - 9:34pm He was the one forcing all

He was the one forcing all the action, and Snyder didn’t take a forward step until 1 min into the 2nd period, probably should have been hit with stalling at least twice. And all the action for 7minutes was hand fighting, which coon out did Snyder nearly every time contact was made, then Snyder would run.

03/04/2018 - 12:27am Duals are different.

Duals are different. Technically there is a rule that a random weight class is drawn from a deck of cards (I believe) that is why different duals start at different weights. Being that this is a tournament they can do a “marquee match” where they will end with what coaches vote as the top match, being that that it is most likely at heavyweight anyways they will most likely just go small to big and start at 125.

02/27/2018 - 11:50pm Kind of a “Cool Story Bro”

Kind of a “Cool Story Bro” but Ole Miss OC was in the school I coach at and said their QB situation was “a bit of an interesting situation” I choked back basically all my reactions to come back with “what do you mean by ‘interesting’” the look on his face was priceless.

02/12/2018 - 8:06am Based on your own given

Based on your own given source Ohio nearly doubled the production of Michigan at last years NCAA Tournament and led all states, so thanks for proving my point I guess? But to drive it home, you’re right...Michigan High School Wrestling totally has equivalents to St. Paris Graham, St. Eds, Elyria, Massillon Perry. Oh wait, they don’t. I hate Ohio St, as much as the next guy on here but Ohio High School sports are impressively talented and deep with wrestling at or near the best sport in the state Michigan can’t match that. Pennsylvania could hardly match it and they won by one point in their dual with 4 NCAA Champions in the line up and a monumental upset at 197.

02/12/2018 - 7:42am Snyder competes at about 230,

Snyder competes at about 230, Coon is a full Heavyweight which puts him at about 290 (weight class is 285 but it is well known that Coon cuts a bit of weight)

02/11/2018 - 10:02pm Ohio High School Wrestling is

Ohio High School Wrestling is light years ahead of Michigan High School Wrestling. Plain and simple
