    Another Kick in the Nuts Coming?

    First the Chiz wins the National Title, now Cael Sanderson wins it. Is Harrison Barnes next?

    Re: Another Kick in the Nuts Coming?

    Cael bothers me, because of the state of our wrestling program right now.

    Gene and Barnes don't bother me at all. We're in a better place now in both football and basketball than we would have been had they stayed in Ames, in my opinion.

    Re: Another Kick in the Nuts Coming?

    Barnes can win one all he wants & I won't be upset, did anyone honestly expect the number one recruit in the country to sign with a 14 win team? I'll be happy for him, now Cael is a P.O.S. that pisses me off watching semis last night and seeing his ugly mug not supporting the cardinal and gold.

    Re: Another Kick in the Nuts Coming?

    I'd rather see Cael win it than Brands any day of the week.

    I'll always consider Cael a quitter though, since he quit on his school. We couldn't pay him what he wanted, or upgrade the facilities like he wanted, so he quit like a little whiny kid and went somewhere where the road would be easier for him.

    I never thought of Cael as a quitter before, until he quit on ISU. He wasn't willing to fight the hard fight, and instead took the easy path paved with gold. I guess he's getting his reward now though. He lifted Penn State to new heights, while destroying his alma mater in the process. Congrats to him.... I guess?

    Chizik is going to get what's coming to him IMO. I think in a few years Auburn will get the USC/Reggie Bush axe. And Chizik will look like a loser. I'm hoping anyway.

    I can see it now: McDermott leads Creighton to the title next year.

    You're right. They are way too streaky. Their comebacks in the ACC tourney were fun to watch, but you can't expect that kind of play every night. They might sniff the Elite 8, but I can't see them beating Ohio State.

    Now that would be hard to take!

    Isn't going to happen though. GMac is right where he needs to be... coaching at a mid-major where he isn't going up against the Kansas' and Texas' of the world night in and night out. He isn't cut out for that kind of competition.

    He will do well for Creighton IMO. But finishing near the top of the MVC conference is not that hard of a task.

    Re: Another Kick in the Nuts Coming?

    UNC is good enough to win it due to their streakiness - IMO. If they can find a way to get hot here, they can get on a roll. I think they only have two losses since Marshall took over as PG.

    Barnes won't win it until year two though. Thats when Chiz won it, Cael will win it, and NC will be stacked next year if everyone stays.

    Barnes to UNC was a blessing. It was just part of the wheels in motion. Embrace it.

    I think you are right.

    If Barnes comes to ISU, GMac is still here. GMac couldn't get us to the tourney with DG, Gilstrap, and Brackins running the court. How would he get us there with Barnes and nobody else? Barnes would not have had anyone else on the team to play with since everyone transferred out while GMac was here.

    I'd rather have our lineup we will have next year over a lineup consisting of Barnes and nobody else. And I'd much rather have Fred than GMac.

    Re: Another Kick in the Nuts Coming?

    Yeah, Cael and Penn State winning the national title would indeed be a "kick in the nuts."
    I remember Gable and Brands pooh-poohing Cael's statement that "he could win a national title easier at Penn State than ISU." They said he was wrong, and I agreed with them.
    Turns out Cael is having the last laugh.

    Re: Another Kick in the Nuts Coming?

    Think Brands and Gable are now wishing Cael had stayed at ISU where they could control him better? Cael wants to be a winner. ISU was good for that as a wrestler, but not the same as a coach. Until we come up with a billionaire alum, or at boat load of millionaire ones, who want to step up to the plate for good ol' ISU, we need to get used to it, and just work hard to make the most of what we got.
