    Names Emerging

    Most likely scenarios as of now:

    1. Bobby D returns to take the reigns for a few years with a "named" head coach in waiting as the top assistant. Several options are on the table for that assistant but the top choice is Joe Heskett.

    2. Zeke Jones. Zeke is a candidate at his alma mater ASU as well. Zeke also interviewed with Penn State.

    3. IF Jones goes to ASU, Kevin Jackson is a serious candidate for ISU.

    Just what I heard today. Take it or leave it. Believe me if you want. I don't care.

    I would be ok with any of those possible scenarios playing out.

    Those are certainly reasonable possibilities and none named Brands.... so they sound good.

    I wouldnt mind if any of those happened, but I'd rather #1. not happen. I think BD is a tad too old, and I would like someone super aggressive as some of our guys have been a tad passive recently.

    Out of the loop. Just curious, is Bobby still around Ames? What about Kevin?

    Kevin Jackson has been coaching at the OTC for a while now, Bobby Douglas was named 'wrestling administrator' here until this last season.

    Re: Names Emerging

    One thing I forgot is that scenario #1 could also play out but with Gibbons as the short term head coach. I would not be a big fan of this. Jim is a great individual but we are a top 5 wrestling program. We don't need to hire someone who has been selling investments for the past 15 years.

    Other names in the mix are Marty Morgan, Bono and Zalesky. They are back burner names for now, I think. Morgan would be interesting but I'm afraid he is J's eventual replacement. Bono would be a decent choice. The thought of Zalesky does not excite me.

    Of course, this is very fluid. What I heard today could be outdated news by now. Minds change and opinions with them in situations like this.

    A coach may reign over a program, but he will be taking the reins

    Re: Names Emerging

    Why the need to have Heskitt come in under Bobby for a few years, but that this Zeke fella or Jackson get the job right away?

    Experience.

    BTW..."Zeke fella"? Seriously?

    At any rate, the new flavors of the day are Terry Brands and Joe Heskett--without the "internship" of working under Bobby.

    I like how these things change, seemingly by the hour. My money is on Heskett today.

    Re: Names Emerging

    We might get to hear the "stop wasting time riding and let your guy up so you can take him down again you idiot" whistle once more from Bobby D.


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
