Eierman is a great wrestler, but I don’t see him winning a title this year. Unless he can learn to attack from his feet and stop relying on people to initiate the wrestling I don’t see him winning a title. He does not want to diversify his game which would undoubtably make him much more formidable. Someone like Pletcher, from OSU, which is a technician and has great scrambling ability as well will more times than not going to come out on top. They won’t take the bait and put themselves in a comprising position and if they do will have the ability to scramble well enough to reach a stalemate or out of bounds to keep from being scored upon. Eierman will still be an AA but I don’t think a champ unless he changes his approach. Always going to be 1, 2, or 3 guys that will be more sound which unfortunately is all it take to keep you from being a champ. Hope people, including Eierman if he reads the post on this website, see this not as sour grapes but a honest objective take. Although I do still think it was bullshit how he left the program!
