    No offense Russ, but do you really think Coach Smith would tell you: "Oh yeah max has a partially strained ACL, it's barely pieced together and we are just hoping to keep it strong til NCAAs."

    Coaches keep stuff like that under wraps BIG TIME.

    Other coaches have told me the exact nature of their wrestlers injuries -Who the hell am I ?? No one -so what if they tell me -I keep that stuff to myself and even if I didn't people would just think I was another crackpot posting on themat.

    Difference of opinion between different coaches. Id keep that stuff under wraps as much as possible if I were a d1 coach.

    Fine line...they also have to make sure they are trying to build a fan base so I think its good that they communicate something, they just don't have to hand you the x-rays.

    Shifflet was pretty damn direct and just said, "Patrovich is out for the year!!!" It was exclamation points and everything.

    Well if a kid is out for the year whats the big deal about disclosing then? Obviously that's when they are less private.

    The secrecy comes often when a kid is going to compete that season and you want to keep the kid protected and the injured part secret. I'm surprised that this is coming as a surprise.

    I'm surprised he was forthcoming about which duals Max would be wrestling in. Brian must really be pulling for you to win your fantasy league. If there's anything else he can do to make that happen for you, just let me know and I'll see what I can do as well.

    Well the weird thing is just how tight lipped in general they are about EVERYTHING...its really not sport friendly.

    Oh, please. Coaches are more open and communicative than they've ever been. Email, facebook, Twitter. Do you think Dan Gable would have told you anything? It's all part of strategy. We have absolutely zero right to know about a kid's health. Not to mention that it's a gray area with HIPAA, and if I were one of these kid's parents, I'd be just fine with them keeping information close to the vest.
