    I love the Mike put himself out there and didn't hold back. Had a slightly different feel than the Bubba J videos!

    The lack of the Hennessy bottle in the background probably contributed to that one...

    I've always liked Thorn, and I'm not surprised to see some good criticism come out of this guy. Can't disagree with any of it.
    Does anyone here think we should start a letter writing campaign like Mike suggests?

    I think a remember something on Flo a couple of years ago about coaches on the hot seat that drew some attention.

    Mike has some good idea's, but his idea of sending letters to the administration could definately backfire. What happens if you send 500 letters a week to the administration that doesnt support wrestling. Why won't they just say F*ck it!? Were dropping it. We've been out of compliance with title IX for a while now and we need to get back on top of it. Were done with wrestling.?

    If wrestling were a money maker like football and basketball were, every school would fire the coach after a couple of years if they werent improving.

    In a case like Minkel up at MSU, Mikes right. There's no way in hell that guy should have a job anymore. MSU is not going to ever drop the sport. I think you have to have it to be part of the b10. So if youre gonna have it at a large B10 school, you might as well try to win a title once in a while. Many, many people would love to have that job.


    Yoces, I can see some similarites between this video and Bubba's. Mike wanted to do this in the sun so we couldnt see his eye's, much in the same way that Bubba wore sunglasses while inside.
