    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    So they'll boost the salaries of the field hockey and women's lacrosse coaches too, as well as any others that need to be bumped? Schools are having a hard time right now meeting their budgets because of the economy.

    College coaching at the Div I level isn't as much about demonstrating technique these days as it is being a CEO of the program and overseeing compliance, budget, recruiting, fundraising, etc., There can be a pretty steep learning curve because of the unique challenges these days.

    How does Flynn not get an interview?? I think of the coaches mentioned, he is the best of the bunch.

    I know exactly who you are talking about. Wrestling doesn't exist in a vacuum in an athletic department. They (name almost any school) can't jack up the wrestling coaching salary without having other coaches demanding the same and, with gender equity in place, the department will have to meet those demands. Thus the wrestling boosters might well have to ante up for other sport's coaching salaries and the reason we could only go to a certain level last year while battling Lehigh. And Lehigh is a different situation from most state universitiies.

    This may seem an amusing exercise for most of you, but I don't want the kids on Maryland's team to go through what the did last year. The is a very real economic reality that exists. I was talking with someone who has a lot of insight into this particular case and they also feel that the contract buyout will be a significant obstacle.

    he quit in the middle of the season to pursue developing his own camps full-time.

    Employers have a long memory. He's toast...need not apply.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    No need to get so defensive. Who says I'm even talking about Maryland?

    It won't be Chertow. I think Mccoy & Flynn are leading the pack. I also think they'd be dumb not to atleast invite Terry Brands for an interview.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.
