If you don't want to read all that the basis of it is...

Wadley states Brian Ferentz called him a “dumb mother fucker” while on his way to take an exam.

Wadley also states Kirk Ferentz gave him note cards on what to say in press conferences. He also states he turned to alcohol to cope with the constant put downs by the coaching staff. He also states Kirk Ferentz threatened to take away his meal card. Kirk followed through on this and Wadley had to call his mom to get a Domino’s pizza.

Wadley states Brian Ferentz wanted someone on the OLine to injure Reggie Spearman because he hated him and wished he wasn’t there.

Dont think it's just 1 player tho. You guys had that highly rated olineman who "retired" and now is walking on at Nebraska. There appears to be some issues.

I’m not surprised your weak minded ass has that response.

Yeah, I’m not OK with coaches strangling high school athletes.

Anyone who’s cool with that is a fucking dipshit.

I knew I was wrong as it was happening...

I don't look back on what the coach did as anything but helpful because the other side of that coin was support that still is there today. I think it's ok to be harsh when necessary when it's paired with good intentions and kindness when that is needed. I think most wrestling coaches will physically beat the shit out of their team every afternoon, but offer just as many hugs and assurance if that's appropriate.

It wouldn't be appropriate today, and I wouldn't want to see it done to my son, but I'm fine with him being coached hard when it's needed to build him a tougher character. I wouldn't bitch if a coach called him simple jack for doing something stupid.

The point being...I've had really tough coaches who said pretty rough things, and none of it had anything to do with race. I know people who have wrestled D1, including Iowa and some of the shit that happened to one of them would have all of these babies in a tantrum for life.

I've had bosses that were absolute mother ****ers, including one that ended in punches because he wouldn't stop calling me a one who sucks the penis. Disrespectful. An asshole every single day. It wasn't about race.

That's my point I guess. Maybe these coaches are absolute pricks. Maybe they think certain players need to be humbled or coached hard to motivate them...maybe they're bad people, I don't know....but I'd be shocked if there weren't plenty of players treated exactly the same way who look back and realize they were better players because of it, and are more successful afterwards because hard men held the, to high standards.

I just don't believe ,out of these things have anything to do with race.


I should point out that I have coached little league and youth wrestling, and I take a very positive approach with kids. I always tell them to have fun and try hard and point out something good for anything I correct.

I wish I had some of your kids. I forget the assholes fast. Talking to another teacher in the district. He remembered the names of all the ones I had this year. 4 years later.

I am worried about the future.
