    Maybe he should reevaluate his methods, old way isn't working.

    Rather than listing why Bono should not be the next ISU wrestling coach, perhaps someone can come up with an argument for why he should be the next coach. What has he done at Chattanooga, or what traits does he possess, that would lead you to believe that he would be successful as ISU's coach?

    I don't know anything about Bono, why do some folks dislike him as a candidate?

    -> very successful career as an athete
    -> one of the Cyclone family
    -> coaching experiance
    -> would probably come cheap
    -> wants the job badly, it appears

    ok, your turn. why not?

    I have not seen anything besides his being a Cyclone really. Great coaches get results no matter where they coach. ISU is a premier job, you don't just give it away.

    Only former Clones I could consider are Gable and Jackson.

    all dumb reasons to hire someone for one of the top wrestling jobs in the land.
    I want:
    proven success as a coach
    good recruiter
    ready to go head to head against Iowa
    singular focus on the team (not their individual wrestling career still)

    and I don't care that:
    this is their dream job
    that they are part of the "cyclone family"
    what school they wrestled for
    how good of a wrestler they were if they are a great coach

    True, but not very relevant as to coaching ability.
    -> one of the Cyclone family
    I think we should focus on finding the best coach available, rather than being concerned with whether that person has ISU ties.
    -> coaching experiance
    Coaching experience is a separate issue from coaching success.
    -> would probably come cheap
    True.
    -> wants the job badly, it appears
    True. Almost too badly. It appears that he is trying to get out of Chattanooga before his record there spoils his chances at any "major" college program.

    ok, your turn. why not?

    My primary concerns are:

    1. Lack of success, and lack of recruiting, at Chatanooga. You can blame this on the name of the school, but look at the wrestlers that Brands was able to recruit to Virginia Tech, another school with no wrestling tradition. Great coaches are able to recruit great athletes, no matter what school they are coaching at. ISU deserves a great coach and recruiter, and needs a great coach and recruiter to continue to compete with the best in the nation.

    2. He seems to be more concerned with his personal wrestling career than his team's success. I was embarassed for the guy when he was at the Midlands out there wrestling with 20 year olds. He proved that he still has the ability, but the question is why does he still feel the need to compete personally at age 35? Shouldn't he be more concerned with coaching his team and trying to make his team successful?

    Didn't Gable wrestle Midlands into his 30s?

    Not sure, he very well may have, but his team was also racking up NCAA championships at that time. In 2009, Bono's 3rd year as coach, Chatanooga finished 52nd at the NCAA's. All I'm saying is that Bono needs to work first on improving his team. His personal glory should take a back seat to his team's needs.

    And someone with an attack mentality. When I wrestled, I would have likely been someone to fit into Brands system.. ******* and all. I was cocky, and I was mean. We need someone like that, but someone who is not a classless idiot like I was or brands is.

    Re: Blog on ISU's Contact with Gable

    After UI hosed up its search for a replacement for Hayden Fry, even though he was a university employee, Gable was very outspoken about how come they didn't go after Bobby Stoops - who almost any outside observer would consider the most qualified.

    Circumstances are obviously different. Stoops had another job on the line, for one thing. But if Gable is the best person for the position, I hope Pollard treats him with the proper respect and goes after him, and doesn't **** around.

    By your criteria we wouldn't have hired Sanderson in the first place and he worked out well for the brief time he was coach.

    That said, I hope we get someone with experience. This team is built to win a national title now.
