    Oh, and, Grand View has a better team than we do and would beat us with both of our full lineups. Don't kid yourself. It's sad...but true.
    Two things:

    1.) didn't we already prove we were better than Grandview by beating them.
    2.) is cytopea neiclone reincyberated (was trying to do a play on the whole reincarnated thing but failed miserably. Reincarnated just sounded completely inaccurate because of the whole inter webs thing.)? Just sounds exactly like him.

    Maybe neicyfan and/or the cheese are just starting over being less grating and being less of an *******. But it is a little weird that somebody who says they have only lurked for a while has full opinions about people like the cheese who haven't posted directly in a couple years, and post that people like neicyfan and the cheese actually provide anything other to the forum than being ********. And most of all say that their enthusiasm for the program is at an all time low, but this is also the time when they are so un-enthusiastic that they decided to start posting about it.

    But yeah, same opinions, same posting style, different approach.

    Say what you will about me. I could care less. I have no idea who either of those two guys are. I just tend to agree with things they say. You can try to focus on why I decided to start participating or you can acknowledge that my opinion also counts and we can have a discussion about it. I don't call you out for being an apologist when you blindly support something that is failing, so try to return the favor when I give my opinion. TIA.

    There is a divided line in the room (you can figure out that line). Just sit back watch and learn. In time we will see who is credible and who is not. The bottom line is we all want the same thing. #Success

    One last thing. You can discredit the GV thing. But If we wrestled them right now they would beat us. If Ryak wrestles in the Nov dual we lose! I am not a GV fan and certainly not a Finch fan... But I am tired of GV getting kids we should be getting. Grandview is legit and we are not!

    Yeah, that makes sense also. You could be a new prima donna who doesn't want to wait his turn and doesn't want to be corrected about anything. You may have inside information, but you may not necessarily be a reliable source because of your own immaturity and issues. Theoretically.

    Re: ***Minnesota Preview/Results***

    I try don't to worry to much about the motives of people posting. I have come to realize who has concerns with the program, who just hates KJ and who supports KJ. I like discussing wrestling and more importantly Iowa State wrestling. It is getting so hard to have a discussion because of the motives and individual accusations. I respond to the people that provide a reason to respond to and read but ignore the others.

    The only thing I ask is don't personally rundown individual wrestlers. Not saying individual performances can't be critiqued. It is tournament time and the last thing the team needs is to read a bunch of negative reports. I hope they don't read the message board, but know that some do. The team needs a positive mental attitude at this point in the season and I will not post anything negative during this tournament run. Good Luck guys, it is a whole new season for you!

    It seems like a lot is up for grabs this year in the NCAA tournament. This is a great year to finish on the uptick.

    Time will tell who the intelligent people are on this forum.... Mark my words "our program is in trouble"! I want nothing but the best for these kids... But they are kids and the room in built around negativity!

    Sad really... You will see when we have 1 - All-American this season. ONE!

    Sorry guys I will float in and out just to laugh at some of your ridiculous jabber....

    Re: ***Minnesota Preview/Results***

    1. KJ is not going any where Pollard is scared of him. Don't know why heard it from a creditable source.
    2. Don't know who we'd hire. I don't feel there is anyone that has separated themselves. Needs to be splashy though.
    3. MN's Coaches get paid roughly the same as ours do with the results of the meet one staff is not meeting expectations.
    4. Women in Cornell love T.N.
    5. PSU staff has had just as long to establish their program as ISU has with new coaches. And KJ was a year behind at this point is not a relevant excuse.

    Just some things to ponder I was thinking about after the match.

    I thought this thread had died but glad to see it's back going... could you please answer my previous question now that I know you have looked at the forum topic again?

    Edit: Now i'm really confused... are you on the team or not? cause the first time I read it you were an upcoming wrestler now you are referring to them as kids so that seems like you are just a fan?...idk I just want some answers

    I think that's a question that a lot of people are asking and there really is no great answer. There some good coaches out there but not many are going to be able and immediately turn the program around as fast as some are wanting to. You can't compare Minnesota's staff to ours. And how in the world are you going to try and compare PSUs progress compared to ours. The recruits that Cael had follow him to Penn State, compared to where that left ISU is not even close. And if u think KJ is on the same level as Cael as a recruiter u better think again.
