    Re: Kurt Backes to the dark side

    If we didn't offer backes, we have to expect him to be a true Cyclone and give his best to his employer. Good luck Kurt and I sincerely hope to see you that you get an opportunity to re-dedicate your skills to the Cyclones.

    Here is the entire quote:

    "Don't get me wrong; I've thought about it," Backes said of being on the other side of the Iowa-Iowa State rivalry. "I have total gratitude to Iowa State for giving me a free education and for Bobby Douglas bringing me out there and teaching me a wealth of knowledge of technique and wrestling, but right now I'm a Hawkeye. I'm 120-, 130-percent dedicated to Iowa, Iowa wrestling, the athletic department, the coaching staff and the 30 or 40 guys on the team to winning another title."

    Dangit. I was hoping he would only be 113% dedicated to Iowa...

    Re: Kurt Backes to the dark side

    Am I missing something? Was Backes offered a position at Iowa State and turned it down for Iowa, or did he take an opportunity because one didn't exist at ISU?

    Last I checked KJ can handle the upper weights pretty well, I didn't think we needed another upper weight coach on our staff.

    Re: Kurt Backes to the dark side

    My good friend sat next to his parents at Jason Knipp's this last weekend. They talked to them for a while about how Kurt wanted to get into coaching and that Jackson had turned him down after Kurt reached out multiple times to him. Finally, Kurt got a call from Iowa and wants to coach, so he took it. Obviously, if he wants to coach and his alma mater can't give him a job, and the #1 wrestling program in the country gets him a job, I think he has to take it. It just sucks we kept turning him down.

    Can you blame him? really? Your alma mater has a full staff, so get on with the defending national champs? C'mon.

    Re: Kurt Backes to the dark side

    Gotta go where the job is being offered to get some experience. Can't say I blame him. I am sure he would have taken a similar job at ISU if we offered it to him.
