    Default Maryland crushes Carolina 41-0

    a beatdown if ever I saw one... and I'm expecting a knock on my door today from the Chancellor of UNC asking for my diploma back since I was at the match sporting a Maryland shirt...


    COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The seventh-ranked University of Maryland wrestling team avenged last season's regular season loss to North Carolina by opening conference play with a 41-0 victory over the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill, N.C., on Friday night.

    Maryland (6-1, 1-0 ACC) dominated from the beginning, winning all ten matches.

    "It feels good to win this way after they beat us last year," said head coach Kerry McCoy. "We're doing the right things and continuing to work hard to get better and put ourselves in the position we need to be in."

    On paper, the Terps looked to have the advantage in the early matches while the Tar Heels looked to hold an edge in the middle weights. Maryland opened by getting major decisions in each of the first two matches before No. 11 Alex Krom went to overtime to defeat Mike Rappo. Maryland held an 11-0 lead going into the matchup at 149 pounds, Jon Kohler widened the lead for Maryland by taking a 10-8 decision over No. 12 Nick Stabile. Kyle John followed that up at 157 with a major decision over No. 12 Thomas Scotton, putting Maryland completely in control.

    Josh Asper (165) and Corey Peltier (184) both got close wins, while No. 6 Mike Letts (174) earned an 18-3 technical fall over Thomas Ferguson.

    No. 3 Hudson Taylor recorded the 69th pin of his career, tying Jake Stork's school record. The senior from Pennington, N.J., is now 12-0 on the season, winning 10 of those matches by pin.

    Maryland is back in action on Sunday as a number of Terps travel to State College, Pa., to compete in the Penn State Open.

    I think you're probably going to be alright. Based on these results, I'd say the Chancellor doesn't care too much about wrestling.

    Based on what I saw, it seems some of the wrestlers don't care too much about wrestling.

    ^^^Does anyone on this site know why hwt Ziah Haddad has NOT been competing for the Tar Heels this season?

    ^^^On Dec 10th a good NC source told me Haddad is expected to be competing for the Tar Heels after the fall semester is over. That's good news.

    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    clearly you don't know me very well My blood is Carolina blue but I just can't completely get behind the wrestling program these days, other than the kids on the team that I know personally, and that I know are working hard. It's embarrassing to watch the guys that have no heart, and it's been extremely frustrating to watch Carolina fall so far so quickly... and besides, I don't even own any Carolina wrestling t-shirts
