His blog was straight forward and blunt which I admire to a point. Sometimes a little tact will help.
ONe schools mediocroty (sp) that bothers me is the University of Northern Iowa. This is a once proud program that could compete on the national level. They have fallen way off the mat. I hate to say it but I believe a coaching change needs to be made there. Penrith has been around for a while now and he just doesnt produce contenders. One AA every couple of years is a far cry from what that program once was. With it being placed right in the center of wrestlings heartland you would think that there would be more success from that program if it had a better leader. I realize they have won the west regional something like 25 times in a row but big deal. It's the west regional. I also know that they cannot pick the regional they are in but the regional is not the goal. A national title should be the goal and they don't even begin to come close anymore. I would love to see UNI be better. I love that school and even went there for a year. The direction of that program since Manning left saddens me.
Off my soap box.
