    Fan Support Unchecked at ISU Wrestling Kickoff Dinner

    AMES, Iowa – More than 300 Iowa State wrestling supporters came out to see the new Cyclone coaching staff and wrestling team Thursday night at the Cyclone Wrestling Club’s fourth-annual Preseason Kickoff Dinner at the 7-Flags Event Center in Clive, Iowa. The dinner and auction were made possible through the generosity of all-time Cyclone wrestling great Frank Santana and the backing of the CWC.
    Head coach Kevin Jackson and assistant coaches Chris Bono and Yero Washington and ISU wrestling team were on hand to greet fans and help fuel the excitement that is building for the 2009-10 season.
    Jackson saw the night as the opening spark needed outstanding wrestling season.
    “This season is going to be special,” Jackson said. “It is going to happen with hard work and smart work. Our guys are giving their all right now for one goal. We are going to get after it and have fun. We’re here for one reason and one reason only. That is to win the national championship.”

    I bet we see a much more aggressive style than in recent past.

    Anyone see the new Wrestling posters. They show the seniors and all the great wrestlers of the past. They left one person off the poster, guess who.

    Wow, I saw a low-res version of the poster, but it got past me that they left Sanderson out of it.

    I can see why, but at the same time he IS the best collegiate wrestler of all time. Seems silly to have a poster bragging about "tradition" and not including the only undefeated, 4-time national champ, regardless of what happened with his coaching career.

    Is Gable in the poster?

    I'd have to agree. I haven't seen it (could someone post a pic or link?), but if true that seems really shallow for Iowa State.

    If you want to go with that theme - put Cael in there. Maybe they could have avoided that theme altogether for a couple years.

    Don't like the idea of leaving him off the poster. He has done just as much for the image of the University as any other athlete we have ever had, maybe more. He went where the money and a novel challenge is, doesn't affect the great years he gave to the school while a student-athlete.

    Re: Fan Support Unchecked at ISU Wrestling Kickoff Dinner

    I was at the tailgate tour stop in Cedar Rapids last spring...and I came away very excited after speaking with Coach Jackson! One thought I had after visiting with him and listening to him address those in attendance...Coach Jackson won't back down from any challenge! None! He specifically mentioned the challenge that is located just to the east of Iowa State! He was great!

    kinda like the Yankees not having any pics of Joe Torre around new Yankee Stadium. I haven't seen it either, but how can you not have the greatest collegiate wrestler of all-time not in there.

    Re: Fan Support Unchecked at ISU Wrestling Kickoff Dinner

    I have to agree with the decision, leave him off. Transitions like this need to be clean in the short run. In no way shoul Cael be associated with ISU wrestling for the next few years. Eventually they will work him back in, but for now this has to be about the people taking this program forward.

    its petty, ISU needs to act like the grown up. seperate Cael "ISUs best wrester" from the Cael "who just broke up with us"

    the only reason I can possibly see is if Cael somehow has rights to his likeness and would not allow it.

    It's not petty in any way, shape, or form. It's a basic organizational behavior issue. When you have a change in leadership you make it a clean cut. It's best for the organization. You can't have thoughts/images/other residual of the former leader hanging around. The only people making it personal are the ones upset about it.
