    Is Cael Worth that $$? Should ISU have countered?

    No. Wrestling will never make that kind of money.

    JP made a smart move if that rumored contract is correct.

    Re: Is Cael Worth that $$? Should ISU have countered?

    In the blog, I point out Fennelly's value and worth...he makes $583,000 per year in base salary...and he pulls his own weight with 9700 fans per game. in 2008, ISU was 2nd in the sport of wrestling at just over 4000 per home meet...Cael's new deal, if its $500k per year, is more than ISU would generate in gate receipts for an entire home season.

    Re: Is Cael Worth that $$? Should ISU have countered?

    Throwing that kind of money at a wrestling coach is basically like seeing who has the biggest junk. It will never pay for itself but some booster somewhere really wants to be good at wrastlin' so he can brag to his buddies...

    If the rumored contract amount is true.....then no, Pollard was right in not trying to match it. No wrestling coach is worth that much, period.

    Re: Is Cael Worth that $$? Should ISU have countered?

    seriously? I thought you were going to have some facts. How sure are we about $500k? is this something you pulled from CF or themat.com?

    I like Cael a lot but no wrestling coach is worth that type of money being mentioned.

    Re: Is Cael Worth that $$? Should ISU have countered?

    Someone tell me why he would not be worth that much? Is he not a coach going for a National Championship every year like in all the other sports? I am sorry with the record that Cael had for Iowa State 3 big 12 championships (someone tell me when Iowa State had that before). If he would have been here a little bit longer a NAtional championship would have been here at Iowa State. I am sorry we let something real good go by.

    The return on investment would never be realized. Its as simple as that. He could win NCAA championships every year and still not pull in enough money to justify that salary.
