    Re: Central Michigan Dual

    At this point, I will be surprised if we see Downey on the mat this year. That's fine with me, as Pestano has put in the work and will have at least a puncher's chance at nationals. I have no basis...

    Re: CW talking ISU wrestling on Twitter

    It has become more apparent to me that KJ is not the right coach for ISU. But the AD shares a healthy responsibility for not not moving in to right the ship, and frankly, for undervaluing the...

    Re: Dane Pestano Article

    I wouldn't be too upset to see Pestano wrestle out the remainder of the season. Downey's question mark looms bigger with each passing day. Its nice that Dane is such a pleasant surprise.

    Re: Arizona State Dual

    Maybe its time to let Boston go to 133 and prepare for next year. 125 for him feels like a losing battle. I think Larson can be a qualifier, and maybe win 1 or 2.

    Re: Arizona State Dual

    Is Dante injured? If not, I would prefer that we place our chips there. For whatever reasons, Meeks has not risen to the next level. Moreover, he has not really shown any promise that he could. Dante...

    I want to agree with you, but at a certain point they are what they're records say they are. Concentration and consistency are part of the equation in athletics excellence. The program is not...

    Re: UNI Open

    So is Boston not wrestling at any weight, now? Related: anyone have any insight into our nutrition program? What is the process for overseeing weight management?

    Re: Cox vs Wellington

    Feel like it was mostly bad luck rather than malicious, but you cannot put a guy into the scorer's table. Clearly the Ohio guy was shaken and couldn't continue at the same level as before. Right call.

    Re: Recruiting ISU Football

    ISU did not "give" that game to Toledo. We did not have better coaching than them, nor did we have better talent. Now we have a new coach and hopefully both will change.

    Re: CKJ has got to go!

    Yes ... Iowa has maintained a much stronger overall commitment to wrestling than ISU. It involves coaching to be sure (and Iowa essentially has TWO top head coaches in the Brands), but equally so an...

    That's the thing about wrestling ... Earl's the only guy on the mat to make the call.

    Re: CKJ has got to go!

    It seems to me that the wrestling landscape began shifting about a decade or so ago when a few universities coughed up the dollars to change their status (tOSU, PSU and others to a lesser degree). In...

    Re: CKJ has got to go!

    This is probably right, but also a disturbing miscalculation on KJ's part. He may be remembering the tight duals of his own college days (which is also not good, as it seems Alger/Gable got inside...

    Re: Iowa Dual (2PM on Sunday)

    You're overstating things. Attitudes toward KJ have been mixed for years: some ardent supporters, most various states of lukewarm, and some resolutely negative. One difference is that the latter took...

    There has been plenty of criticism of Jackson here. People did dig in and defend him when the attacks shifted from critiques of performance to personal (and in some instances racist, imo) vendettas....

    Re: Early season expectations

    Fair point. I guess we're talking about two different notions of improvement: one is incremental and the other is transformative. I agree that many of our guys can get better. I just don't think we...

    Sure. And its almost certain that if we wait til next year, no one will be searching. ISU will have the pool all to itself, right?

    We are a middle of the pack team without much room for improvement. I see very few of our guys being in contention for AA come March. I wish this weren't the case. I think the staff is now developing...
