    Light weight coach

    Why not bring Eric Juergens in as light weight coach

    Re: Light weight coach

    Just an observation: I find it interesting how many 1st-time posters the wrestling program attracts.

    Talking about bringing in coaching for the light weights isn't along the same vein as a lot of those posts. We really do have an issue with our light weights that is due in large part to a lack of upperclassmen workout partners, but also possibly due to the fact that our coaches are concentrated in the upper weights. Yero is the sole lower weight guy and I am not sure how much he is on the mat with the wrestlers. If we had somebody like Bono on staff right now I think it would be a huge boon to the team.

    No offense to KJ, I wouldmjust likemto see him add a lightweight coach. Our stable was full this year in Iowa with nationally ranked light weight studs and we only got one of them

    Re: Light weight coach

    No offense to Yero he would make a good Ames high assistant coach. Not fair to the light weights who are training in the room without a coach. YW maybe a nice guy but way under qualified to be the head assistant at one of the richest historical wrestling program in the sport

    I am pretty sure we go the ones we wanted. Dakota Bauer has looked impressive this year, and Meeks was the cream of the crop. Larson should provide a good partner for Finch as well. I don't think KJ looked that seriously at Peters, Clark, or Laux.

    Meeks is a good one, but looking at crop this year we missed some good ones also. Peters, Hathaway,Laux, Carton, Ryan , Devos, Clark to name a few

    So will we be good in 2013-14 or in 2014-15 as our freshmen get older?

    Maybe they are looking for other fans? I really don't like wrestling, but then again I don't understand it.

    $$$, and of course the fact that other schools are recruiting the same kids.

    Iowa is still the 500 lb gorilla in the state, and they will get their pick of the best ones. Other fox 12 schools like minney and wisc, are working hard in Iowa as well. Add the fact that Schwab is an excellent recruiter, and he went all in money wise with kids the last two years, and it shouldn't be that big of a surprise that we "missed" on these kids.

    As far as coaching positions, I am assuming that changes will be a last resort kind of thing. Kind of like football coaches change coordinators when they are in trouble.

    Re: Light weight coach

    I have talked to one of the light weights over the summer and he said he would like to have a coach that got on the mat with them! You have Reader working out with the 165, 174, 184 and you can see how they are doing. I wrestled at ISU in the early 90s and having a coach that can push you is great. Its always good to have someone that was a national champ. If you have to get someone from the hawks go ahead. I like the Paulson's but they didn't have much for offence. We need a good lightweight coach!

    I totally agree. Especially with the lack of upperclassmen to beat on the freshmen not having a younger lightweight coach that can be on the mat every day is an increasingly glaring problem. Our light guys are lost on bottom and don't do a very good job at all of chain wrestling to get a takedown on their 3rd or 4th consecutive counter or shot. They are still wrestling like guys straight out of high school who are used to dominating their opponents and not having to do reshots or fight out from bottom.

    Why not Dylan Long again? Stud lightweight. Not sure if there's hard feelings because of Andrew Longs situation.

    P.S. I wrestled Long in high school and went toe to toe with him for 30 seconds. At least I didn't get pinned

    Re: Light weight coach

    We need to up grade the light weight coach, but why can't KJ help coach the 125-157 as every coach should be able to help every athlete.

    KJ has been telling everyone he can that he was in the corner of Henry Cejudo and Bill Zadick when they won their olympic and world titles. He forgets to mention that Terrry Brands was their coach and that is why Terry was introduced as their coach.

    Speaking of Terry Brands he figured out coach guys out all sizes. He coach Cejudo and Heavyweight Steve Mocco. Look at some of his projects at Iowa which include Luke Lofthouse and Ryan Morningstar.

    Lou Rosselli at ohio state is able to train guys of all sizes as he is Tervel Dlagnev coach.
    Mark Perry is able to coach his light weight guys look at freshman Jesse Delgado and Boris Novachkov. Why can't KJ figure out how to help his guys.

    We need an up grade at head coach worse then light weight coach
