    Re: Taylor and Macchiaroli Released

    If these are the only two significant losses from the coaching change, I'll be pretty happy. I don't like that Eric keeps wavering. If he and the rest of the freshmen class stay, we'll survive this.

    Re: Taylor and Macchiaroli Released

    Why are guys wanting out of their LOIs. It is not like ISU hired the HS wrestling coach from Valley. ISU is still a great place to wrestle and KJ is a big name in the wrestling world, just not Cael big.

    I think you answered your own question.

    Couldn't it be argued that KJ is bigger than Cael big, in regards to College Wrestling - his entire body of work?

    Not at all. How many people do you know that actually heard of KJ prior to him getting hired at ISU. Then think about all the people you know, even people that no nothing about wrestling, that know who Cael is....

    To the common man, there are only two names in wrestling. Dan Gable and Cael Sanderson. Period. That's it.

    These guys aren't the common man though... they're future college wrestlers!

    I'm just putting it like this. While Jackson is probably going to be a good coach, he isn't the name recognition that Cael is. Those two guys ONLY came to ISU because of Cael. Now that Cael is gone, they don't want to be here.

    Most athletes commit to the coach, not the school (even though it should be the other way around). We just have to accept it and live with it...

    Re: Taylor and Macchiaroli Released

    "“We made a commitment to Cael Sanderson and we made a commitment to Iowa State,” Ronnie Beard said Thursday. “It would be unfair, wouldn’t be right, to ask for a release and not show the respect due the athletic director, to the university and to the new coach. We’re going to meet (Jackson), we’re going to look him in the eye. We’ve talked to him, he sounds great; we want to do the right thing.”

    I like this guy!

    Re: Taylor and Macchiaroli Released

    Bael Sanderson didn't make Iowa State wrestling. He is a name, an icon to most young kids because of what he accomplished here and there's nothing wrong with that. Iowa State wrestling will ALWAYS be an elite whether we have a coach that appeard on a Wheaties box or not. I think that most kids understand that and want to be part of Cyclone wrestling tradition, more so than who the coach is necessary.

    Where did you read that quote from Ronnie? I think Jackson was planning on meeting with Boaz today or this weekend wasn't he?

    I think you could make that argument for international wrestling but not for collegiate. Kevin is in the international wrestling hall of fame and Cael isn't.
