    That's a VERY good hire. Cerebral, tough kid.

    With the exception of Finch at 125 ISU really struggled in their lightweights this past year. Even Finch didn't seem to wrestle up to his potential. Nickerson should be a great addition. He sure was one talented, gutsy wrestler, wrestling in a lot of pain at his final NCAA's.

    Troy should focus on starting his internship in Ortho and quit doing more damage to his shoulder.

    Is he planning to go to medical school? If so, coaching would be an interesting path in the process. A lot of wrestlers have gone on to be doctors, but I haven't heard of one doing coaching as an interim.

    I've always heard he wanted to be a surgeon .I seem to remember that he wanted to specialize in shoulders .GOBIGRED would know more than I.

    You've got to figure he's a little small to be a draw for McCauley, but the other light guys that they've pulled in absolutely.
