That was the popular opinion when he released the list

BSU had a first year head coach and not much recent success... far from home as well.
Princeton and Campbell are largely looked upon as up-and-coming programs, but with very different cultures. The Princeton coach is a relative unknown, one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. The Campbell coach is an icon of the sport (Cary Kolat) and is an intense dude (finished 2nd at NCAA as a frosh, tossed his trophy in the trash because he was so ashamed of it).

In any event, it sucks that a program got dropped. Wrestling has the lowest % of HS participants that go on to compete in college. Now another 30 or so opportunities are gone. The kid I referenced will have options, but some of the others who aren't blue-chippers are going to be in a bind.
