    That would be a great coaching call. It's ballsy...and sends a clear message to the team. In Cael we trust.

    Erwin's Win at 184 Propels Nittany Lions to Win Over Rutgers at Sprawl and Brawl Duals
    http://www.gopsusports.com/sports/m-...112209aaa.html

    BINGHAMTON, N.Y.; November 22, 2009 - The Penn State Nittany Lion wrestling team, ranked No. 19 in the NWCA Coaches Poll, won the battle of bonus points and got a key win from senior David Erwin (Urbana, Ohio) at 184 to down Rutgers 18-17 in its opening match-up in the 2009 Sprawl and Brawl Duals in Binghamton, N.Y. Each team won five bouts, but Erwin's debut at 184 via major decision was the deciding factor for Penn State.

    184: Senior David Erwin (Urbana, Ohio) made his season debut at 184 for Penn State, battling RU's Jesse Boyden. Erwin got the bout's first takedown, using a high double to work his way around Boyden and take an early 2-0 lead. He then cradled the Knight for three near fall points and a 5-0 lead. He reset and began working for another turn. Erwin picked up two more near fall points but Boyden worked his way through for a reversal, cutting Erwin's lead to 7-2 with :20 left in a furious opening period. Boyden managed to ride Erwin out to close out the period. Leading 7-2, Erwin chose down to start the middle period. Boyden put together a solid ride until Erwin escaped to an 8-2 lead with :45 left. Boyden also got called for a first stall warning. Erwin led 8-2 after two periods and Boyden chose neutral to start the third stanza. Erwin used a high single to get another takedown and up his lead to 10-2 with 1:35 left. Erwin then began looking for another chance to turn Boyden over for back points. Erwin built up a minute-plus in riding time and continued to press Boyden, looking for a chance to turn him. While Erwin could not turn the Knight, the ride out and bonus point gave Penn State a critical 11-2 major and put Penn State up 18-11.


    I would have to agree with you Salto. I didn't want to give up on him either especially as a 5th year senior but it looks like 174 may have been a real tough weight for him to make based upon the first few weeks performance. I hope he keeps it going.
