    Question Cael Win Magazine Interview

    Cael stated in a Win Magazine interview " It was clear to me that the ISU administration and some of the more public alumni weren't convinced I was the right guy for the job."

    It is hard for me to believe that any one could come to this conclusion with the rise in attendance at home meets,conference championships and high finishes at the national tournament while he was the head coach.

    I think he just wanted to coach at Penn State because of the high population and talent in the area.

    By "more public alumni", I'm assuming he means the bigger donors. And while when you've got a team contending for national titles, you would like to believe that donors would just be throwing money at the program. Doesn't mean it always happens, though.

    I'm not saying he didn't get much from those donors, because I don't know. But lacking that kind of support is a pretty big deal, IMO.

    When you compare alumni support at Iowa State vs Penn State, Iowa, Ohio State and others, Iowa State only has a small %age of the support these other programs have. Also KJ has been alot more vocal about getting support for the Cyclone Wrestling club and I think it is helping. Cael has a lot quieter personality that doesn't get you passionate about the program (especially the fringe fan).

    Re: Cael Win Magazine Interview

    He's justifying his departure and trying to make it look like something besides what it actually was...him being sick of playing 2nd fiddle to Brands and Iowa in-state. The facilities and pockets that PSU could offer were 2nd to none and he jumped at the chance to make his own footprint there. I don't understand why he doesn't have the sack to admit it and quit picking 2 year old scabs.

    Re: Cael Win Magazine Interview

    im going to say that is a bunch of cra p... no way people wanted him fired, and if they did, they should be gone. He only won 2 BIG 12 titles... Totally not the right guy. Come on Cael.

    I think when he mentions "more public alumni" , he's talking about the money that will be thrown at him to make Penn State a wrestling power. Look at the support he has at Penn State after 2 years. He's God out there. The fan support is huge and he can get whatever upgrades he wants and alumni will come up with the money. We don't have that, but I think KJ is much more passionate with the fans.

    They're not. Iowa spent a lot of money last year, and was really just building depth in this class. We had a little more money, but did much that same thing. Not a lot of impact wrestlers in our class. Next years class will be the deal breaker. If we struggle there, KJ is going to have to start finding rabbits in his hat.

    I am convinced that the biggest problems for ISU wrestling are:

    1. The Big Ten Network. That network regularly broadcasts wrestling matches on national TV.
    2. The declining number of Big 12 wrestling teams.
    3. The lack of a wrestling only training center.
    4. Gable's departure years ago.
    5. Cael's more recent departure.
    6. Money at ISU versus the big Big Ten schools.
