    BIG OlE Contract Terms...$1 Million Signing Bonus

    Sad day for the last good guy sport that greed hasn't ruined, just passion for the sport dies today!

    Penn State Clips

    Note the rich guy that just ripped our heart out...dick!

    In no way is JP at fault look at the crazy insane money that was thrown at the top leader in the sport. They don't want the nuts from iowa, they want to have a classy kid named Cael.

    Moving forward if the team holds we are still in the title hunt!
    Go State!

    Mother of god that's a huge contract.

    I don't know how you can possibly say it was anything other than the money. That's insane money for a wrestling coach. The first year, it's at LEAST 6 times what Cael was pulling in before, and maybe more like 8-10 times.

    If this holds, I can understand him leaving (understand, but doesn't mean I like it) for PSU. Would be good to know there isn't something else driving Cael away from ISU.

    That's just repeating the same rumors found on this site. As others have posted, Cale told reporters in Ames today he's not getting "anywhere near" $500,000, and not all that much more than he did at ISU.

    If this turns out to be true, I guess you can't really blame him. Don't know why he claimed it wasn't much of a raise on TV, could have just admitted it.

    A signing bonus is not considered a salary. He could be making about the same salary, but with that signing bonus, oh boy!!!

    An extra 400 thou a year is nothing for a school with a decent football program. HEll, we pay that out to coaches every year that dont even work here anymore. We could swing it.

    Re: BIG OlE Contract Terms...$1 Million Signing Bonus

    really torn on this. hope it is true as it really makes cael leaving a lot easier to swallow. walking out of a room an instant $1 million richer is hard to pass up. On the other hand i hope it is not true or wrestling as we know it is done. The Lehighs of the world can forget about it, shut them down. Iowa, tOSU, and PSU can decide who wants to buy national titles more.
