    Go Get Terry Brands...

    I am not thrilled with the idea of hiring Bono as ISU's new wrestling coach. I think he has done little to prove himself at Chattanooga. You can blame that on the school that he was at, but look at the wrestlers that Tom Brands was able to recruit at Virginia Tech. Good coaches are able to get good recruits, no matter where they are coaching.

    I think Pollard should go after Terry Brands. And based on what I've heard about the relationship between Terry and Tom Brands, I think Terry would at least listen to what Pollard has to say. Not only would Brands bring more intensity into the ISU wrestling room, but it would be great for wrestling to have twin brothers each leading the other's biggest rival, not to mention two of the top programs in the nation.

    What about the relationship between the two brothers?

    I'd at least give him a call. He may work for $50 a year just for the chance to kick his brother's ***.

    Terry Brands was rumored to have been approached by Penn State and turned them away. Why would he come here?

    He "turned them away" for the same reason Koll did. Because their number one choice accepted.

    That's not the timeline I get; Koll and Brands were in conversations with Penn State prior to Sanderson. I understand Koll was the number one choice.

    If I read you correctly, then, why would Koll come to ISU after turning down Penn State?

    I know you didn't bring Koll's name up. Other people have, however.

    I did bring Koll's name up. You make sense, but for god's sake, THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN is that Koll (or anyone else) says "no thank you, but I appreciate the interest."

    You could be right, but what has Terry Brands done to warrant being ISU's coach -- other than he and his brother, who just happens to coach at Iowa -- can't get along?

    I thought ISU went this route when Bobby Douglas was hired from ASU. Douglas knocked off Gable's teams once or twice and everyone thought he would be the savior of ISU wrestling.

    I don't want to bring in a coach whose primary goal is "just to beat" Iowa. I want to bring in a coach who wants to beat everyone.
