    Hawks -- enjoy these years.

    I say the Hawks lucked out. They got to combine 2 schools' recruits into 1 awesome team. I'd say maybe I'm slightly jealous. <- (closest I could come to a jealous smiley)

    But whatever. We're still amazing with such a young team. Let's fill it out with a few more amazing recruits!


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    I never wrestled in school, nor watched a match of wrestling before the ISU-UI meet earlier this year. Sanderson is what makes me watch, I think he will extend his legacy here much beyond what it already is and it will be fun to watch.

    Re: Hawks -- enjoy these years.

    Anyone think I could have worked in the word "amazing" a couple more times?

    They need Va Tech to wrestle for them, and past Cyclone greats to coach them.

    i would much rather that dan gable no longer have any association with us. watching the finals of midlands last night, when they were interviewing him, he kept referring to iowa as we, and was constantly coaching the iowa wrestler during his match-much the same as he did when he was an "announcer" on iptv. i used to idolize him when i was a kid, now i think he is a classless piece of ****

    I wish ISU could get some reliable backups. If any of our guys would get hurt we would be in a big hole. Knock on wood that everybody stays healthy.

    Re: Hawks -- enjoy these years.

    So ISU uses no transfers in their starting lineup and almost one-half of Iowa's starters are transfers. The question is, can Brands equal this type of recruiting when he is not combining recruits from two different universities? How did Iowa do with signings in November, and how do people on this board feel about his ability to recruit in the future?

    he recruited all of those guys to virginia tech-not a well known wrestling institution, and they all transferred to iowa when he left because they wanted to be coached by him. i would say the guy is a phenomenal recruiter. kids want to be coached by him if for nothing more then the attitude.

    Considering the kids that transferred were Brands' recruits, yes, he can get that talent.

    Re: Hawks -- enjoy these years.

    He will continue to get great recruits. To get guys from Iowa to go go to Virginia to wrestle when they have 3 good instate schools to go to, that is impressive. I only see Iowa getting better in the future.

    Re: Hawks -- enjoy these years.

    I see Iowa State only getting better in the future too. I get the feeling that some are willing to hand the title to Iowa after the Midlands showing. I think Minnesota and Iowa State will having something to say about that before this season is over. Cael and J will have them just as ready as the Headbutter will.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    I noticed that too. We won Midlands last year and didn't win the title. In March, that win means squat.
