    Crowd at first meet

    Good crowd for a Thursday night and the student section was great. Always enjoy the early part of the home season -- learning the new faces on the mat and in seats near us, although I enjoy learning some of those new faces more than others.

    A win is always good, but I think we have room for improvement and I'm looking forward to seeing the team get better this year.

    Re: Crowd at first meet

    It was a good win. There's a lot of room for improvement. I'll give them a pass on the first meet though. If the passiveness that was exhibited by a few of our guys isn't addressed before the Iowa meet, then it will be a debacle in Iowa City. Those guys push, push, push and I'm not sure our guys are apt to handle that in a hostile environment.

    Re: Crowd at first meet

    I'm relatively new to following wrestling, is it common for a team to forfeit the last match if they are hopelessly behind? It just seems like that would be similar to us forfeiting last years Texas game in the 4th quarter.

    The only thing I can figure is that their HWT must be dealing with some injuries and the coach decided not to risk it for a hopeless cause. I don't know, it just seemed unusual.

    I had read on the lineup sheet the day before that that would be a forfeit. I guess they must not have a HWT or at least he didn't make the trip because of an injury.

    On another note, I thought the MatCyd seats with the row of tables in front of the student section really looked good. I saw Al Nacin and Frank Santana there and I saw a name tag for Tim Krieger but after the meet started I didn't check to see if he was there. It's cool to have some of our past greats sitting in those seats.
    Also, it was fun to talk to cyclonefanatic Redrocker who has the best seats in the house.

    I'm sure Cael kept them conservative focusing on technique. Hopefully he has them ramp up the tenacity next.

    Re: Crowd at first meet

    Utah Valley doesn't have a heavyweight, and there's no way they were going to bump guys around to fill out a complete lineup.

    Re: Crowd at first meet

    It was a great match, and it was awesome for Jake to end it with a Pin. I thought that the line up was good, and it was the same as last year with the addition of Chris P. Did anyone else love the way he clapped at the opponent to hurry up? Good match and I look forward to the next home match.

    Always good to see Wes at all the sporting events with his camera. Does the lens on that thing weigh a 100 pounds, geez it is huge!

    Loved it! He showed enthusiasm and excitement, and those around us who saw it appreciated it.

    My bad, I forgot Jerome. I was hoping to see him really get after it. At the wrestle-off he was an animal. I think he is still going to be great, considering he is a Red Shirt Freshman.

    Quotes from Cael after the match

    From the Iowa State Daily:
    “They had some pretty good defense in there; we just needed to have a little more attitude and find more ways to score points,” said Sanderson, who is entering his third season as head coach. “That’s what we talked about, as a team, here. So these guys know what to do, we just gotta do it.”

    “We weren’t at our best tonight, you know,” Sanderson said. “It’s an early match, so I’m guessing that’s what the deal is, but it’s something that should pick up momentum as we move along here.”

    Re: Crowd at first meet

    The big problem I had with last night is that we're not aggressive enough at the lower weight classes. I'll probably elaborate more on Clone Chronicles sometime later today in the Wrestling Section...
