    Cael Confident

    I love how he was quoted as saying, "We are going to be there from now on, and everybody knows it." He's generally very humble in his press quotes, but this shows that quiet confidence he has. I love it.

    Re: Cael Confident

    It is the pride of a champion. He will not accept losing as any sort of alternative. He is being straight with his wrestlers, this way his athletes know what will be expected every year. I, for one, love that. Now if we can get the Cyclone fans, as a whole, to have those expectations of all of the programs, then we will be getting somewhere.

    I will be buying 2 season wrestling tickets next year. Usually would go to 3-4 matches every year anyway. I was never a wrestling fan, we did not have it at our high school. My wife is the big wrestling fan (from carroll) and got me into it. Now I LOVE IT!

    Recruit as many fans as you can! Wrestling is a sport that is in dire need of new fans. One of my biggest fears is that we'll have to cut wrestling out of the programs in high school/college because of a "lack of interest." However, once people understand it, they seem to have the same reaction you did; they LOVE IT!

    Re: Cael Confident

    Oh yeah, after a good exciting match, hell, I am tired for all the cheering and jumping up, and hanging off of my seat. It took me about a season of watching and asking my wife, "whats that point for" or "what is riding time". It was always alittle embarrasing when your wife has to explain a sport to you But I am pretty addicted to it, and I look forward to next season. I will also be attening the ISU Wrestling Golf Outing in June put on by the boosters, and showing my support. I will get the info if anyone else is interested.

    Re: Cael Confident

    Hell yes.I think that I will be buying season tickets as well.Being a wrestler in high school..i don't think there is anything more exciting than watching a match that comes down to the wire.Being down by 1 or 2 points with a minute to go and you are the only one that can do anything about it.Don't get me wrong, I like team sports but this is the only sport that you can't blaime anyone but yourself. I think that bringing Cael in, was one of the best moves that has happened for the school.I will also be taking part in the ISU Golf Outing.Anything that I can do to give money to the program..I will do.

    Are you my landlord? JK, but I"m with you. Wrestling really is the only "team" sport that is so individualized. Also, in order to win, you're forced to completely dominate your opponent physically. That's also attractive to watch.

    Re: Cael Confident

    The pride of a champion comment took me back to the Cyclone meets in the early 70's when the matches were over before they started.
    When the Cyclone wrestlers, dressed in their Cardinal robes, would all line up on the edge of the match across from the other squad, you could just sense the awe they had for the Iowa State team. Multiple national champions, almost all of the rest All-Americans, the Cyclones had earned the respect, and fear, of all who came to Hilton.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.
