    ISU Athletics /Wrestling

    I posted this in another thread:

    How do you motivate these kids to wrestle? They wrestle so conservative and show no emotion. If losing and getting embarrassed doesn't motivate you, I question what kind of competitor you are. Nothing in life is just handed to you…you got to fight for championships and ISU doesn’t have that mentality.
    Very disappointed…It seems like ISU athletics overall is content with sub par performances at best. Being the laughing stock of sports in the state doesn’t settle well with me.

    Re: ISU Athletics /Wrestling

    Good question. You would think being physical starts in the wrestling room. CS has been saying the team needs to be my physical and aggressive for 2 years now. The other part is the makeup of the wrestlers.

    Re: ISU Athletics /Wrestling

    Have you seen the Iowa basketball program?

    Give Cael a chance, I think he's going to take the program in a really good direction. Football's rebuilding but with Rhoads, his hires, and some really good recruiting pipelines down south football looks to be in good hands.

    Re: ISU Athletics /Wrestling

    If I hear someone say time will take of everything is crazy. Tell that to my old man who hasn't seen to many great moments in ISU history over the last 55 years. Hasn't the fans of ISU waited long enough?

    These threads tend that way. He's seen a few, and sometimes they all look the same.

    I'm not saying that you were going for the fire Cael thread, but this trend crosses all three major men's sports.

    Look at Iowa football and wrestling. They find a way to win when everything is stacked against them.

    I've seen posts the last day or so saying he should be fired. People think Pollard needs to be fired. People think Coach Mac needs to be fired.... So I'm just being consistent with the rest of the board.

    If your not on the firing bandwagon then your getting left behind.

    Plus... Sarcasm pirate was used in this and the other thread.

    Go back and look at the threads regarding Big 10 football. That conference wasn't that impressive.

    Well anyone who says fire the coach doesn't think about things logically.

    And with that, I would say "Welcome to the Internet."

    They still find a way to get to a big bowl and win. ISU can play an easy schedule and we still can't find a way to win 1 game in the conf.

    We had a breakdown on the defensive end. I think the breakdown was our defense.
    Nobody would have gone with that defense.
