    I've been pushing for Jones from the start. I know people are concerned about his "loyalty" but this would be a job at/near the pinnacle of his profession. The USA Wrestling job is completely different from college coaching and it sounds to me like he's discovered it isn't what he thought it would be.

    I think JP has made his choice and he's simply giving everybody else an interview as a courtesy.

    I think JP is the only one who knows that answer and he's not talking.

    Ahh could be. If the School isn't doing all that well financially I would hate it if they are flying in unnecessary people on our dime then.

    Perhaps, but you also have discrimination issues if you don't interview qualifed applicants.

    I don't think so, if they've already interviewed Kevin Jackson. I want it to be fair too, legally and by doing it the right way. I just think that it would be a waste of money if he really is doing some interviews as a courtesy.

    Word is that he's also talking with ASU - his alma mater. What connection or loyalty would he have with ISU? I don't need someone who left Penn high and dry and has been with USA Wrestling what - a few months?

    No offense, but you've wanted everyone you've mentioned so far, and I've lost track how many names you have thrown out there.
