Notes from today's (11-26-12) Kevin Jackson press converence
--- Looked tired and flat yesterday. Coach takes responsibility for that. No time to hang head with a trip to the University of Iowa this week.
--- Coach still believes the team will be better this year.
--- Road trip to Iowa on Saturday. 7:30 start time at Carver Hawkeye Arena.
--- On John Meeks. "He's a winner. He's a champion. I don't worry about John at all." A win on Saturday would show him where he is at regarding his ability to compete for national honors.
--- The team is excited for Saturday. Says there is a heightened sense of preparation for the upcoming dual.
--- On Michael Moreno at 165...."His overall commitment to wrestling" is a big reason for recent success. "He just has more confidence. He believes in himself and it is showing in practice."
--- On Ryak Finch at 125...Not wrestling his best. Conversations being held behind closed doors to get him back on track.
--- Says team was mad and angry after Sunday's effort. Team knows they are better than how they performed. Team learned some things about themselves. Had a team meeting after loss that "wasn't a friendly conversation."

Thanks for the coverage Chris!!!
"I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''
