    The most amusing thing about this is all the people that think Max Askren will beat Cael. I am sorry, that is just not happening. Cael will have trouble at the international level, but will walk through the competition at nationals.

    I agree, unfortunately. I'd love to see Reader take him out, but I just don't see anybody stacking up with him. Herbert would probably be the only one I could see doing it. It sucks, as the last think Cael needs is more recruiting ammo, plus, he'll give all the credit to the facilities and support at PSU.

    I recently read "The Silent Gladiators" which is about the 04 Olympic team, and Cael struggled to even make the team (which I didn't know before), and it went down to the wire between him and Fullhart. I wouldn't be shocked to see him lose this year, especially with him getting up there in age.

    Yeah IIRC I think Fullhart beat Cael the first time they faced off but then Cael had the edge. I remember thinking Cael probably wasn't going to get the gold in 2004 but would do so in 2008 after he had more international experience and seasoning.

    Interesting that he is doing this for the first time in many years. Makes you wonder if he's doing this for recruiting purposes, or just really wants to compete again?

    I'd never heard of this until your post. How was it?

    Re: Confirmed - Cael to wrestle in WTT

    Does anyone think there's anything in his mind about London next summer? Could he possibly want to go for another Olympic run?

    People are forgetting about him. He wants to see his name out there again because he is an attention whore.

    I liked it, but it was kinda dry and full of grammar/punctuation errors. However, the author ended up sending it out to all the HS wrestling coaches in Iowa to try and stimulate sales when it first came out.

    I'd give it a read if you're into finding out behind the scenes stuff for wrestling in the olympics.

    Also, apparently in 04 Cael had said after losing to Fullhart the first time that he wasn't sure why he was wrestling anymore.

    Pretty sure that he told his wrestlers that if they won the NC that he'd compete in the WTT, but sure go ahead and hold a grudge.

    So Gene Chizik leaves and you love him more than ever. Cael Sanderson leaves and he breaks your heart?

    Prior to the 2004 team trials, the only loss to Fullhart was when Cael was a redshirt wrestling unattached in a tournament around '95-'96...... while Fullhart was already a full-time mat-rat.

    Cael won 2 of 3 during the trials in '04.

    184: Cael Sanderson, Ames, Iowa, beat Lee Fullhart, Colorado Springs, winning 3-1; losing 2-2 in OT (9:00) on tie-breaking criteria, and winning 4-1.

    It's been said on more than one occasion that Cael won a freestyle gold wrestling folkstyle. He was far from a finished international product when he "retired" from competition. As far as wrestling goes, he not that old. By international standards, he was young when he won his gold and he's put very little wear and tear on his body in the last 6-7 years.

    As '78 said, this is most likely to draw more attention to Cael and his beloved PSU program, but I wouldn't be the least bit suprised to see him try to push it through to London. He'll let Cody run the program and see how far he can take it.
