    Not to brag but I made this call 6 months ago . Andrew is a great kid and his goal since 8th grade has been the Olympics . He feels Pritz will get him there . That being said -I think he is a prick for leaving Wiscy.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    So are you saying that a kid who committed to a program that lost many of the coaches he committed to is a prick for looking out for himself? I think he should be applauded and the coaches should be held responsible. If they would have all stayed, he probably would have too. In my eyes, he owes Wisconsin nothing. They lied to him when he was recruited, basically. Wisconsin nation should be mad at Pritz, not Howe.

    You always hate to see someone that has had the success of Howe not finish where he started, but everyone knows he is attached at the hip with Pritz. He is going to do what's best for his freestyle career. I am sure he will be enrolling wherever Pritzlaff lands next season, graduate, and then join that school's coaching staff and freestyle club.

    AH also received 4 free years of college and n the big 10 he will have to pay his own way his Sr. year. I never thought I would say a bad thing about AH but he signed a contract . A grown man lives up to his commitments.

    I totally agree with you, Russ. Character counts for everyone.

    I understand what you're saying. But if the only reason he went there was because he was lied to by coaches that he are told to look up to, then I don't see the problem. Why are the kids held to a higher standard than the coaches? That seems completely backwards. The NCAA does not punish a coach for leaving, but they do punish a kid. WTF?

    Andrew Howe is in his early 20's and has the rest of his life in front of him. He was promised he would have certain coaching if he signed on at Wisconsin. Now that coaching isn't there and no one is being held responsible for it. So, I don't blame him one bit for leaving. If his thoughts are the Olympics and have been since 8th grade, then let him pursue his dream. Again, Howe is an adult, but he wasn't when he signed on. He was lied to and IMO he shouldn't be held anymore responsible than the coaches. I hope his dreams come true. I would hate for them not to come true because a grown man lied to a 17 year old kid just to better his coaching career.

    Like, say, a coach making a commitment to step down and then reneging when a huge recruiting class comes in?

    I'm assuming that is a direct reference to someone, but I must have missed it. ??
