    cyclone wrestling is dead!!!!

    cyclone wrestling is ready for a funeral. cyclone wrestling is dead!!!!

    ottopalik was a successful coach when he started in 1933.
    dr. harold nichols came to iowa state in the early 1950's and produced several good teams.. dr nichols was from cresco ,iowa, which turns out some good wrestlers..
    dan gable wrestled for dr. nichols and was beaten his senior year in the national championships by a soph from washington state named larry owings when the wrestling tourney was held at northwestern university. dan went on to coach at the university of iowa and was a very successful coach...since harold nichols retired we had a good coach from iowa state named jim gibbons and jim's teams were very respectable. jim left because his pay was poor-30,000 per year..then we had a coach that was not very good from arizona and the team tanked. we were able to recruit a very good wrestler named cael sanderson who was the best wrestler in iowa state history and he coached iowa state for a couple of years and left to go to penn state for a better salary....yes a better salary!!!!!!!!
    since the leaving of cael,our wrestling program is a fraud once again.
    we have an excellent football coach.
    we have an excellent boy's basketball coach. we have one of the best ladys basketball coaches in billy fennelly.
    why don't we have a good wrestling team? a poor coach,maybe???? can't we hire a wrestling coach that will bring our wrestling program back to its former heights??

    should pollard be fired??
    i think the wrestling coach will see the road.
    how do we get back to the glory days of wrestling?
    whom should we hire?
    i would think that they would get dan gable back to iowa state as an assistant athletic director and let dan hire someone to shape up our wrestling program.

    what r the other fanatics view on our wrestling program??? should pollard be held responsible??? we could have kept cael if pollard would have paid him a decent salary? i think pollard should have his tenure reviewed!!!

    Seriously? We might as well fire Pollard for not bringing baseball back to with that logic

    I really hope you are joking about this. Wrestling is a niche sport amongst niche sports. Calling Pollard on the carpet for this would be ridiculous. In the grand scheme of things, ISU being good or terrible is nothing. It's a blip. Pollard has much bigger things to be concerned about. Things that actually matter.

    Re: cyclone wrestling is dead!!!!

    I don't think an AD will ever get fired, anywhere, simply because of how he handles the wrestling program. Remember, this is wrestling we are talking about, the majority of ISU fans don't even care relative to FB and BB.

    Seriously, I'm sure that JP cares about the state of the wrestling program as well. If this is the status of the program going forward we will certainly see a change. However, I doubt JP will pull the plug with a lot of talent waiting in the wings. He'll let Jackson prove that he can do it or can't.

    Pollard hit two home runs in a row for the two teams that bankroll the AD. This post(er) is ridiculous.

    I like this guy, his posts have a nice mix of crazy, just a smattering of actual facts, all while having the grammar and punctuation that make me think he browses the internet on a toaster.
