    Re: WOW!!!! Wrestling Travesty!!

    WTH!!!! That is BS

    but it is only a magazine right?


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: WOW!!!! Wrestling Travesty!!

    Just to make sure my facts are right.

    We beat them head to head.
    We beat them at the Big XII meet
    We finished ahead of them at nationals

    Correct?

    If so, this is a perfectly logical decision guys...

    I don't know wrestling but if the guy took a horrible program and turned it into something. That is a little harder than taking a National Power (Iowa State) and making us second in the country. I would vote for Cael. It does sound like that coach did a great job though. Either way. Cael don't care so I don't.

    Alright that's way too much objectiveness for this message board. Let's all run over to knownothing's house with pitchforks and torches.

    Knownothing has it right. Yes, ISU outperformed MU this year, but what if GC took the Cyclones to the Big 12 Championship game this year and lost to Texas (or Oklahoma or whomever). Wouldn't we all be screaming that he should be coach of the year? Cael is a great coach. We will see multiple national championships during his tenure. Just give the guy some credit, MU was nothing until he showed up.

    Re: WOW!!!! Wrestling Travesty!!

    W.I.N. magazine usually has different rankings than the USA Today/ NWCA poll and the AWN poll.

    W.I.N. is always just a little different, from what I've noticed the past few years. So what does a "different" magazine do? They pick a different coach.

    Sorry about that everyone. I went into this objective message board typer thing. It will never happen again. To reply to the original poster. No way Cael doesn't win this award. It's a travisty.

    Re: WOW!!!! Wrestling Travesty!!

    Another way to look at this. Let someone else have an award. It's like giving superman an award everytime he rescues someone. Sure he deserved an award but let Jimmy Olson get an award for a picture he took. The little guy at missouri can hold Cael jock strap if he wants.

    Re: WOW!!!! Wrestling Travesty!!

    Wasn't Cael chosen as National COTY? I thought he was, but maybe I'm mistaken.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I am interviewing Mike Finn of W.I.N. Magazine today on my show, and will ask him about that. We'll also talk recruiting and the upcoming World Trials, and the biggest challenges facing both Iowa State and Iowa next year.
