    rumor from EUI.

    Anyone know about a meeting today in Iowa City between JP and DG/TB? Something to the effect of Gable coming to coach one season, then turning it over to Terry.

    No. Have not heard. If true, I may have that condition that they talk about in the viagra commercials, you know the one where you are supposed to seek medical attention?

    Haven't heard anything but I'm sure Gable will be talked to at least. He has always spoken with good respect for ISU even after coaching at Iowa.

    Re: rumor from EUI.

    i dont really know what if i would like this or not. I think if we got gable he would be great but the part i'm not sure of is Brands. I guess I don't know a lot about him other than what hes done wrestling wise. Is he anything like his brother?

    Gable/Brands are the only two that can compete with Brands in recruiting immediately, and are the only two that would not be a downgrade in recruiting overall. I mean, Cael has proven to be a better recruiter than JROB and John Smith lately.

    The one thing I hear about Brands is that he doesn't like the administrative part of being a HC.

    If either Brands were to become our coach I for one would not attend any meets. Might as well bring in Huggins for basketball and Holtz for football. We may win, but you might as well throw all semblances of sportsmanship out the window.

    Re: rumor from EUI.

    I always thought of Gable as an ambassador for wrestling in the state of Iowa rather than just hawkeye wrestling. I do not think it will happen, but Gable could single handedly save ISU wrestling for the short and long haul if he took over for 1-2 years.

    He would likely get all current recruits and returning wrestlers to stay to make a run at the championship next year and stop the long term bleeding and rebuilding that may be coming.

    I also think he would get to handpick Brands as our next head coach. I believe out of all options he will probably give our program the best chance to win.

    I think it could be an attractive offer for Gable to do so and I could certainly see why he would do it. It would be the single best thing for wrestling in the State of Iowa.

    Re: rumor from EUI.

    This would be absolutely huge, imo. Say what you will about their Hawk ties/sportsmanship/etc, but they are gonna hit Tom Brands hard. We need that.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: rumor from EUI.

    Honestly I'll take a wait and see approach but this would be great for ISU and wrestling in general. Part of me wishes it doesn’t happen, but part of me does. At least then I wont have to listen to ISU's fans jealously complain about Tom......

    I will say this though, Iowa's secret is the amzzzzing intensity Tom brings and his brother is the same way. For those that say they hate each other, I'm not sure that is as true as the fact that they have always been ridiculously competitive. Almost to the point that it was dangerous. An old high school friend, Billy Glenn, went to Iowa for a season before transferring to UNO. The Brands boys roomed together until they had to be separated. Billy roomed with one of them after the fact and he said their intensity and competitiveness was off the charts.

    If true this rivalry and wrestling as a result would be off the Hook.........Literally.
