    The Clones have turned the corner

    What a great effort tonight with a solid win over UNI. They're not a great team, but they are a good team, and we won handily. Our heavier weights are awesome. Although the lighter weights are not having quite as much success, they are showing great improvement. They will be rewarded soon.

    Great job guys.

    Sorry all. I'm all thumbs after a great evening of wrestling. And I don't know how to remove one of these threads.

    Just commented there seems to be slow improvement happening which is a huge positive. Still a ways to go, but definitely nice to see the guys getting better.

    Re: The Clones have turned the corner

    if gibson had wrestled against ou we'd be sitting at 8-3 which wouldn't be bad considering our first 2 outings of the season. gotta wonder where we'd be if we had mccauley and spangler. at worst 9-2 and our 2 losses would have been closer i would think...

    Re: The Clones have turned the corner

    If we had McCauley and Spangler we'd be a top ten team. That would be two possible NCAA finalists in the lineup. Moreno has done a great job but he isn't at Spangler's level yet.

    149 would go from unranked to top five.

    165 would go from being mid-teens ranked to top five.

    Amazing isn't it. The attitude seems to be so different. The guys are aggressive and in shape. I love it when I see a Cyclone pick up his opponent and move him to the center of the mat. That is confidence and that is style. I love it!!

    Re: The Clones have turned the corner

    Beard and Gibson seem to be shaking off their bad starts to the year but I'm still waiting for Finch and Goettl to at least get back to what they showed last year.

    Finch, Meeks, and Goettl should all go 2-0 next weekend though. Hopefully that'll give them some confidence going into Big XIIs. Does anybody know when they will release the qualifier slots?

    Re: The Clones have turned the corner

    I can't remember when I posted it but it wasnt too long ago that TnT said the guys were going to turn the corner just needed to have a little patience. I'm glad I heard it from those two because I was starting to get frustrated, but it didn't fail. Huge improvement by all guys. Aggressive attitudes, winning attitudes, keeping each other focused. We aren't anywhere close to where we use to be. Steady improvement, now just need to make one last corner and get back to being contenders for champions and for a top 3 finish.
