Ohio State’s Myles Martin wrestles Mitch Bowman in the dual-meet against Iowa on Jan. 21 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignThe No. 2 Ohio State wrestling team (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) was defeated by No. 5 Michigan (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) 19-17 on Friday for its first loss of the season. Ohio State finished the match with four wins in 10 matches against the undefeated Wolverines. Ohio State seniors Joey McKenna and Myles Martin, No. 2 and No. 1 at 141 pounds and 184 pounds respectively, remained undefeated after Friday’s match against Michigan, as McKenna and Martin both won by technical fall. McKenna defeated redshirt sophomore Kanen Storr, the No. 5 wrestler in the weight class, by technical fall 18-3. After Ohio State fell to a 7-0 deficit, McKenna brought the home crowd back to life, winning the team’s first match.“I had high expectations for myself going into the match. I knew I was wrestling the No. 5 guy, but I knew my team needed me,” McKenna said. “I tried getting the place riled up and we did, but coach Ryan said there is a lot of work to be done.” Martin won in dominate fashion 24-9 with a technical fall against Michigan redshirt freshman J.T. Correll. Martin said he is used to playing in front of a big home crowd and was trying to motivate the others. “For this match, it was more about the team, and I knew my kid wasn’t very good,” Martin said. “I was just trying to get the team going just because I have been here before.” Ohio State redshirt senior Micah Jordan, the No. 3 wrestler in the country at 149 pounds, won by major decision over Michigan redshirt senior Malik Amine 17-4. Jordan said winning as an individual is always something he strives for, but he wanted the team to win the duel. “Being able to win my match against [Michigan] is always awesome,” Jordan said. “I wish we beat them as a team, but that didn’t happen tonight.” Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan said Martin, Jordan and McKenna were impressive, but he needed more points from the rest of the team. “These three seniors scored 14 points for us, and we had two techs from two of our seniors, and a four-point major,” Ryan said. “These three guys lead us tonight and it would have been nice to get some help, but we didn’t get it.” Ohio State redshirt junior Kollin Moore, No. 2 wrestler in the country at 197, remained undefeated and won by decision 12-5 against Michigan redshirt junior Jackson Striggow. Moore’s victory gave Ohio State a 17-16 lead after nine of 10 bouts, which left Singletary, only needing a victory by decision, to win the duel in the final bout. “Kollin knew he had to pin the guy, so I think that when a student athlete goes out there and he knows he needs the pin sometimes you don’t focus on the little things you need to do,” Ryan said. “He knew it was a pin or Chase needed the win.” Ohio State redshirt freshman Chase Singletary, the No. 17 wrestler in the country, lost by a 6-3 decision to Michigan freshman heavyweight Mason Parris leaving Ohio State just short of a team victory. No. 2 Ohio State will take on Illinois at 9 p.m. on Friday in Champaign, Illinois. read more

Rummenigge explains why James will stay at Bayern

first_imgNow that the winter transfer deadline is closed, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge explained his reasoning behind James Rodriguez staying at Bayern.During the whole winter transfer window there were rumors that suggested James Rodriguez would certainly leave Bayern Munich, but chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge explained why the Bavarian club ultimately decided to keep the Colombian midfielder in the club.Throughout the season there have been several rumors of a disagreement between the player and manager Niko Kovac, who left him on the bench several times in all competitions and never really explained why.These actions were obviously regarded as a message for the player, the media believed that the Croatian boss didn’t want James on the squad and we all expected him to leave before January 31.But turns out we were all wrong, as neither the club nor the manager wanted James Rodriguez out of Bayern Munich and they all unanimously decided that the best option was for him to stay until the end of the season at least.But going a little bit further in this decision, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge explained that he never even entertained the idea of the Colombian player leaving the German club.🗣️ Rummenigge sobre @jamesdrodriguez: “Creo que todos queremos verle regularmente sobre el terreno de juego, pero eso depende del entrenador. Tengo que decir honestamente que realmente me gusta James”. pic.twitter.com/LagN2ffqCB— James Rodríguez Col (@jamesdrodrifans) January 31, 2019In fact, Rummenigge considers himself one of James’ biggest fans and he truly believes that the player has everything to become the club’s best player.During a football and business congress celebrated in the city of Dusseldorf, the Bayern Munich chairman was questioned about the club’s final decision to not let James Rodriguez leave despite the several offers from clubs like Juventus, Chelsea FC, Manchester United, and even Real Madrid.Rummenigge didn’t even flinch when he responded that the player will stay and the club simply doesn’t care about letting him leave, he also said one of the biggest truths in today’s football about James Rodriguez’s left foot.“James Rodriguez will remain as a Bayern Munich player, this is the best decision for both him and the club,” said the chairman via ESPN.“I have to recognize that I am one of his biggest fans. He is a great player and he may have the best left foot in the Bundesliga.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I really believe that we all wish to see James more often on the pitch, but that decision is for the manager to make. But I do have to be honest when I say that I love that player.”‘James tiene la mejor zurda de toda la Bundesliga’: RummeniggeEl dirigente del Bayern Múnich se declaró fan del colombiano y espera que juegue máshttps://t.co/5zmKIMiyFQ pic.twitter.com/U6j75jn0Vp— Futbolred.com (@futbolred) January 31, 2019After this statement, the media was eager to know what manager Niko Kovac would have to say about his chairman’s beliefs on James, this was a clear message directly from the board of directors and the Croatian boss needed to respond.Far from avoiding the topic as he was pressed about it earlier on Thursday, Kovac made a massive revelation about James Rodriguez’s discipline on the training grounds.“The thing with James Rodriguez is that my decision to not play hi is solely based on what I see on the pitch during practice.”“James is a truly great guy but only the players who practice better are the ones who play. We will play a game in the middle of next week, this will give every single player an opportunity to play and this obviously includes James Rodriguez.”Now that James has heard about the manager’s thoughts on his training efforts, this might be taken as a message that could motivate him to improve during practice and finally earn his spot on the starting eleven on a weekly basis.Rummenigge, sobre el futuro de James: “Lo digo abierta y honestamente, me gusta mucho, soy su fan, pero aún hay tiempo y tenemos que tomar la mejor decisión para él y para nosotros” pic.twitter.com/33lo68XuIB— Bayern Latino (@BayernLat) January 31, 2019What do you think about Bayern Munich’s decision to let James remain at the club until the end of the season?
