    Would be a great move if we could keep our other kids(post grad wrestlers, and recruits) in the program.

    Re: Rumor going around in StL

    Probably not going to be released immediately if true unless JP flew back from Louisville last night/this morning.

    Why would anyone think this would happen in the middle of the NCAA tournament?

    Re: Rumor going around in StL

    Heskett was a great wrestler at ISU and has done a great job as coach at Army. The only part that disappoints me is that I'm guessing Army wrestlers can't just up and leave to follow their coach to a new destination. I want to pull the old Brands/Cael special!

    Exactly and we all know JP is in Louisville with the basketball team. Pretty sure this is a group blowing smoke.

    Why does JP have to be in town in order for there to be a factual rumor? There are other employees of the AD here along with a lot of insiders.

    I'm not sure it matters where Pollard is this weekend as no on is predicting when an announcement will be made.

    I'm not so sure that this move would be a good one....

    I don't think KJ is in real trouble until next year.

    Re: Rumor going around in StL

    I think KJ took over a horrible situation from Cael. Cale basically screwed Iowa State. I don't think the guy has been givin enough of a chance. he is finally getting some recruits to help out the team


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Rumor going around in StL

    I am interested who people think is going to come coach an underfunded program with subpar facilities that wouldn't even give them time to get established. Changes certainly need to be made. But hiring a new coach isn't going suddenly fix everything. Not giving Jackson another year would hurt the program far more than people think. Do you really want to lose another years worth of recruits?

    Underfunded? Maybe compared to an Iowa or Penn State but not compared to most of the rest of the country.

    I'm torn on KJ. You only pull the plug on a coach after 2 years if you have zero or no confidence in him. Are we at that point? I have to say, his inability to get his team ready for the post season may have gotten him to that point for me. But yes, I would sacrifice a year's worth of recruits if it is determined KJ is not the right guy for the job.
