    Default Dear J. Robinson

    Thank you for your passion for the sport of wrestling and for being a champion of the U.S. Military. We appreciate your support and we know you have done a tremendous amount of the sport of wrestling.

    That being said, next time you allow a press release from the University Of Minnesota to go out letting people assume that you were bringing your team to the KB Open, we would appreciate a heads up if that decision should change. I have to ASSUME there were some people that went to the OPEN today assuming that a number of the starters would be there competing in the Elite Bracket.

    This is what the press release from the Gopher Website read:

    FOR RELEASE: NOV. 19, 2009
    THE KAUFMAN-BRAND
    The Golden Gophers continue their early season
    schedule of open meets, with the Kaufman-
    Brand Open this weekend. The meet
    begins at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21 and
    will include more than 500 wrestlers from Division
    I, Division II, Division III, NAIA and NJCAA
    schools competing in what has become the
    largest single-day wrestling tournament in the
    nation.
    THE RECORDS
    The Gophers are coming off a season where
    they posted a 15-8 overall record and a 5-3
    mark in the Big Ten. Minnesota was fifth place
    in the Big Ten in the regular season as well as
    fifth at the Big Ten Championships. At the
    NCAAChampionships the Gophers finished in
    14th.
    THE SERIES
    2009-10 will mark the fifth straight season that
    the Golden Gophers have been to the Kaufman-
    Brand Open, dating back to the 2005-06
    season.
    LAST MATCH-UP
    Last season at the Kaufman-Brand, Zach
    Sanders at 125, and Mike Thorn at 141, each
    won individual titles. In addition to their two
    champions, the Gophers also had runners up
    in Dustin Schlatter, Scott Glasser and Ben
    Berhow at 157, 165 and heavyweight respectively.
    FOLLOW ALONG
    Results from the 2009 Kaufman-Brand Open
    will be posted all day throughout the tournament.
    The Kaufman-Brand homepage can be
    accessed through www.omavs.com.


    Where it never says anywhere you were actually committing to bring anyone, the assumption that you can infer from the release was that you were.
    Thanks,

    The Fans.

    You'd think these coaches would have a little more consideration for the fantasy wrestling coaches out there.

    Or fans of their team..Imagine paying high dollar tickets to go see the Yankees and Jeter, A Rod, Sabaithia, Canoe, Posada, Rivera all don't play "just because" and you see AAA guys play. Be pretty pissed right? This isn't that different.

    This has nothing to do with Ness, though I admit that is a little disappointing. I think alot of peope enjoy watching him wrestle.

    As much as Gopher fans must be disappointed that Jayson was unable to get to the Kauffman Brand open, surely we can all be understanding that He may need a bit more preparation before he subjects himself to the gauntlet that was the KBO.

    Let's look at the potential matchups Ness would have had to endured to simply reach the finals:

    First up Jayson would have Jarrod Weins from HC. I'm not sure exactly what HC stands for, but I seem to recall a school with that abbreviation having a rich wrestling tradition.

    Should He find a way to best Jarrod, in all likelihood he would have Tyler Clark, the 2nd string 125 pounder from Iowa. Even though Tyler was up at 133 he is still formiddable since he barely lost to Charlie Falck last year who Ness barely majored. For obvious reasons this match is a toss up at best.

    In the unlikely event that Jayson bests Tyler he would in all likelihood have Kyle Hutter. Hutters resume speaks for itself, but just to get to the highlights last year Kyle was a CAA finalist, who was easily the 6th best wrestler on his team based on win totals. Not only is he one of the best credentialed CAA wrestlers, Kyle was also a member of the national honor Society. Can you say complete package?

    So in summation, I must agree with Jayson and Coach Robinsons decision to attend the Auggie open so that Jayson can ease slowly into his senior campaign and make a run at getting on the medal stand at Big 10!

    LETS GO JAYSON!
