    What does an "advisor" do?


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    This rumor has been out there since before the Iowa match this year.

    Re: ***RUMOR***

    Maybe he does not want the program to collapse.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: ***RUMOR***

    Heard it many times. Gable and KJ do not get along, so only way would be without KJ. One question that was once posed, but I don't remember seeing the answer is, Does Gable donate to the CWC or to the CAA? Last I could remember the answer was no. If he was so concerned, he would probably at least be donating.

    When Brands came on he was a major recruiter for IU. Dont know if this changed. He probably is trying to find a way to get Iowa back on top of Cael. He had Z fired for a 7th place finish and not winning a title in a few years. Cael looks to be in very good position for the next couple of years.

    Re: ***RUMOR***

    Gable cares about wrestling probably more than anyone else. He understands that Iowa State needs to be successful in order for college wrestling to be successful.

    Sorry, this can't be an official rumor thread until you start at least two more rumor threads.

    Re: ***RUMOR***

    So, it is an official rumor unconfirmed by a credible source? Hmm...

    Re: ***RUMOR***

    Have we reached the point now that we no longer need the word "official" in thread titles, as long as there is an equal number of *s on each side of the title?


    And if Gable wants to come in as an advisor and help rebuild this program, I'd be all for it. Wrestling is being cut across the country, and while Gable may be a big Hawk supporter he's an even bigger supporter of keeping wrestling alive at any school. If ISU falls too much further it would be easy for it to be first on the chopping block if a sport needs cut and it sounds like Gable wants to avoid that at all costs.
