    I agree with your point. However, as was mentioned, he has losses to Gray (#1 ranked in DII), #9 ranked Bonaccorsi, ranked Montalvo, and #1 recruit at 182 last year in Keckeisen. A nice win over #7 Assad. A pretty decent start to his career.

    I'm not anointing him as an AA next year as he will have to continue to put in the work, live the lifestyle, and prove it on the mat next year. That said, I'm glad he's a Cyclone!

    Really dissappointed with the result yesterday, not really much to add but we looked flat with exception of 125, 141, 157 and Hwt.

    What did you all think of Dressers post match interview?

    I'm not really a fan of Dresser calling those guys out publicly. I get that Dresser is frustrated, and what he is saying might be true. I just don't think it is productive, it reminds me of the KJ days when he would always throw guys under the bus. Even if what he is saying is true, if you're one of those guys, does that really motivate you to do better? If you're a recruit, do you want to come wrestle for that guy? I don't think the answer to either is yes.

    I'm fine with Dresser calling them out. Keep in mind that Dresser is also telling us what he's going to do differently..."micro managing" weight control, workouts, etc.

    I’m sure he has tried to get through to them privately and that has failed.

    We should see Degen on Friday. Good dual to come back to after almost 2 months, I'm sure he'll be a bit rusty. One thing about him, never have to worry about weight issues.

    This was my thought after he made the comment of "letting them do it their own way". Its a touchy move but when they wont listen, you have to go about motivating them in other ways. I dont think what he said was all that bad but some people see it as such.

    I agree Dressers comments were a bit bold. However, he’s been the national coach of the year, he’s been at this a long time, he’s in room with them and knows things we don’t and so many of these kids have so much potential that it’s a shame if it doesn’t get tapped into. It beats the coach speak or the “we just didn’t have it today” bs lines. He shoots it straight and you can’t ever fault him for not telling you what he thinks.

    I think you meant Land Shark, not Land Grant. I've not posted for months, and don't see now as a good time to break that pattern.

    Good grief - he's just giving his opinion - just as you and I can give ours.
    Life is too short to waste your time trying to be a message board control freak...

    I hope no recruit comes here thinking they can cut corners and not buy in. Buying in to be a decent wrestler vs being a National Champ is different and not everyone is willing to do it. Dresser is here to coach National Champions and AA not good wrestlers. Those are the type of recruits we need.

    When they got into a little shoving match at the edge of the mat and both wrestlers appeared to get a little pissed, I turned to my old man and said man that might be just what Sammy needs.

    I liked what I heard from Dresser post match. I have coached enough to know that every kid has a different motivational point. And a coach also needs to be able to address the team as a group. He sees more in that room than we do, and I trust that he is working one of many angles. I was coached (albeit not in college) by a coach that was trying to reach me personally. It was not until he called me out semi-publicly that he got through to me. Coaches need to take some of this on them selves, and it looks like they are. Wrestlers need to take it the rest of the way. But win or lose, I am the Alabama Cyclone.
