Programs can face unforeseen foes
« on: October 21, 2009, 11:36:58 PM »
Good story by Brian Jerzak, Intermat

What ever happened to UMD Wrestling?

I had no idea when I asked that simple question that the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldog wrestling program would become a part of my life for the next two years. I was interviewing Tom Youngblom, Mora head wrestling coach, for a story about the Mustang wrestling program that would appear in The Guillotine later that year. We were talking about his days as a wrestler and he mentioned he wrestled for UMD in college. I knew UMD at one time had a wrestling program and innocently asked Youngblom the question that started this crazy journey. 'What ever happened to the UMD wrestling program?' His response was the first of many instances where I knew I had to tell this story. Youngblom simply said, "Now THAT would make a good story."

There are people I would take a bullet for and others that I would like to put a bullet in.

thanks for sharing. I wonder what the oregon wrestling debacle will look like in a decade or two. Do you think Kearney worked that hard to save it?

I am not sure if Title IX is our primary opponent anymore.  I think the article shows how so many other factors are at play in the arena of sports politics.
