    Maybe a change of location is what he needs to get his **** together. Wish he was still a Cyclone, but wish him the best if he chose to leave. Who knows if he thinks Jackson will even let him back on the team.

    No surprise, the demise of ISU wrestling continues.

    Might as well left Bobby running the ship.

    Until Jackson proves me wrong, I tend to agree. We seem to be heading in the wrong direction.

    Re: Rumors out of Happy Valley....

    I wouldn't sound the death knell for ISU wrestling just yet, it isn't like we imploded last year with Jackson at the helm. We haven't seen yet how he develops guys (since his background is working with guys who are already elite and pushing them to another level) and recruits, so it is to early to know for sure, but the only black mark I'd give Jackson so far is how disapointing Weatherman has been so far this season.

    Long got kicked off the team because he couldn't put down the bottle, not because of problems with the coaching.

    Fixed it for you. I hope he never comes back to Ames.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Why would we allow him to go to PSU? He can go anywhere but Iowa it Penn St imo.

    I still think it is funny reading about all the people still mad at Cael. Really? Get over it! He gave his heart and soul to Iowa State for almost a decade wrestling and coaching here. People who thought he was going to be ISU's version of JoPa are mentally challenged!

    This isn't on Jackson. This is on Long. Jackson has pushed a more aggressive style and locked up some nice recruits. It is far too early to declare this program a sinking ship. I always forget how much I can't stand the fringe ISU wrestling fan. They look in from the outside, rarely knowing anything about the team outside what they see in the Iowa-ISU meet, and then proceed to trash the program and its coaches. Sounds a lot like Iowa football fans.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Being that he was kicked off the team, I doubt they had much choice as to where he could go. From what I understand, he was no longer on scholarship.

    This. With all of the seniors we had last year it was inevitable that we were going to have a down year. With the limited scholarships it is impossible to have a deep bench and have all americans ready to step in right away. The defections have hurt even more, but there are young guys in the room that just need some time.

    I don't hold quite as much hostility against him, but Bobby got forced out to prevent Cael from being another Gable (though in Gables defense we didn't offer him the job, which is why going to Iowa isn't held against him) and just a few years later Cael not only pulls up and leaves but tries to take people with him. Add in Cyler last year and we would have had a lot more team points at nationals.

    I wouldn't boo him if he came back though, he left to build his own program in a wrestling rich area rather than continue the legacy at Iowa State. The only thing I don't like is that he allowed them to push out Bobby Douglas knowing his heart wasn't with the Cyclones for the long term.
