    24 minutes and counting. It would be nice to finish at least second and ahead of the dreaded Squideyes.

    It would really be nice to come from behind and win the national title. That would really shut up a lot of people who are doubting Caels ability.

    Who is doubting Caels abilities?
    He has us in second place nationally, Big 12 champions in his first year.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    People were doubting Cael? Wow, I missed that.

    Re: Wrestling Updates

    Some people doubted the decision when he was hired. Just because you're good at something, doesn't mean you can coach worth a darn, so I think the skepticism was fair.

    I don't think winning the national championship is required to shut up the doubters though. I think most of them are believers already, regardless of the touney results.

    Paulsons, No. 2 Cyclones right on heels of No. 1 Minnesota at NCAA Championships
    Craig Sesker USA Wrestling
    03/16/2007

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – It seems like Iowa State’s Paulson twins have been around forever.

    That’s probably the sentiment of many of their opponents as Cyclone seniors Trent and Travis Paulson have pieced together superb collegiate careers. Both now are three-time All-Americans.

    But two career-long goals have eluded the Iowa State standouts.

    Winning individual and team titles at the NCAA Championships. Both those goals remained very much alive through Friday’s first session before 14,170 fans at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

    The Paulsons comprise half of ISU’s semifinalists as the No. 2 Cyclones remained very much in the title hunt. First-year coach Cael Sanderson’s crew was in second place with 62.5 points entering Friday night’s semifinals. Top-ranked Minnesota is in first with 66 points and four in the semis.

    “Travis and I always feed off each other and seeing him do well inspires me even more,” Trent Paulson said. “We’ve both worked really hard for this tournament. It would be awesome if we could both go out as champions and the team could go out as champions. That would be a perfect way to go out.”

    Minnesota and ISU each have three wrestlers alive in the wrestlebacks.

    Four-time defending national champion Oklahoma State also had a strong session by placing four in the semis. The No. 4 Cowboys sit in third place with 48.5 points.

    Leading the way for OSU is two-time NCAA champion Johny Hendricks, who beat Missouri’s Matt Pell 10-2 in the 165-pound quarterfinals. Hendricks has won 55 straight matches.

    “This is my last year and I’m wrestling balls to the wall,” Hendricks said. “I will do whatever I need to win. I want to dominate. I love the sport - I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t love it. I’m doing everything I can to help our team.”

    Top-seeded Trent Paulson (157) beat unseeded Josh Zupancic of Stanford 2-1 in the quarters while No. 4 seed Travis Paulson (165) stopped No. 5 seed Nick Baima of Northern Iowa 5-1.

    Trent Paulson will try to avenge a loss to Mike Poeta of Illinois in the semifinals. Poeta beat Paulson in the finals of the Midlands Championships. The No. 5 Poeta knocked off No. 4 C.P. Schlatter of Minnesota in the semifinals.

    “It will be a real exciting match with Poeta,” Trent Paulson said. “He is real offensive and I’m going to push my offense. I’ve just tried to stay calm and use my experience to my advantage in this tournament.”

    Fourth-seeded Travis Paulson will meet the top-seeded Hendricks in the semifinals. Fellow ISU senior Kurt Backes (197) also reached the semifinals as did Cyclone freshman Jake Varner (184).

    The Paulsons will be joined in the semifinals by Oklahoma State sophomore Brandon Mason (174). The Paulsons and Mason were teammates on state championship teams at Lewis Central High School in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

    Top-seeded Minnesota senior Cole Konrad (heavyweight) extended his winning streak to 74 straight after rolling to a 16-4 major decision over No. 9 seed Michael Spaid of Bloomsburg. Konrad is a returning NCAA champion.

    Top-seeded Minnesota sophomore Dustin Schlatter (149) extended his winning streak to 65 straight with a 6-3 win over unseeded Tyler Turner of Wisconsin in the quarters. Schlatter, a returning NCAA champion, is 77-1 in his career.

    Missouri’s top-seeded Ben Askren (174) continued to decimate the field after earning a fall in the quarterfinals over No. 9 Matthew Palmer of Columbia. The returning NCAA champion and reigning Hodge Trophy winner has won 85 straight matches.

    Returning NCAA champion and second-seeded Matt Valenti of Penn looked sharp at 133 pounds in a 4-0 quarterfinal win over No. 7 seed Mack Reiter of Minnesota.

    Rider junior Don Fisch continued his remarkable run at 141 after beating No. 4 seed Manuel Rivera of Minnesota 10-4 in the quarterfinals. The unseeded Fisch has now defeated No. 5 seed Dominick Moyer of Nebraska, No. 12 seed Cassio Pero of Illinois and the No. 4 Rivera in the tournament. Next up for Fisch is No. 1 seed Ryan Lang of Northwestern in Friday night’s semifinals.

    “I was unseeded coming in, so I really had nothing to lose,” Fisch said. “I think I’m as good as those guys, I just have to go out there and prove it. I take what they give me and try to capitalize on him.”

    Yeah, but letting another Gable get away would get someone murdered.

    I was refering to the article posted in the Register the other day basically saying that our friends to the East have a better coach. Atleast thats how I read the article. I don't think anyone in the Cyclone family ever doubted Cael.
