    Russ, Tanner Hiatt is not a bum. You will see.

    I'm not saying he will be great this year. But I think he will aa before his career is over. Hiatt, not Welter.

    The second part. The sad part is that I've seen him work with little kids and he's actually a really great kid but he's just been in it too long too intensely I think. I think it's just possible he's cracked.

    Hmmm, taking it literally, I think we are all entitled to our talents. What we choose to do with our natural abilities is the big, 'unentitled', question.

    I have become more of a believer in the philosophy that you generally get what you deserve. In sport, I would exclude the cheaters, but otherwise I generally agree. In Grajales, I believe he is entitled to his natural abilities (which probably guarantees him a spot in the R12 every year without a ton of hard work). He is also entitled to my loathing for apparently being one of those guys.

    You allowed a mentally weak wrestler on your team?

    Va, I obviously didn't do enough research when drafting this guy. I liked how he wrestled against Frank the Tank so I took a chance. For some reason I thought he had AA written all over him this year. I am not a big fan of guys that quit so if he indeed quit he be gone. I have a better guy in Lester anyway but with Grajales wrestling in the CK I needed to start him. Mentally weak guys belong at PSU


    Oh by the way at the University of IA our guys compete on 1 leg and become AA's. See the STAR and Derek "The Champ" St. John

    Without bothering to look at who Michigan has at 141, why doesn't he go down to it now that Russell is gone? Watched the video and while the Hiatt kid looked to be a fairly big 149, Grajales doesn't look like he should be at this weight, just too small and the Hiatt kid was too strong for him. Imagine if he had to go against Dake or Metcalf in their 149 days? They would just smash him.

    If he's not going to pack on the muscle he needs to handle guys at this weight then he should be dropping down a class.
