Corey, I cant believe that lost to W. Mich was as bad as the Michigan lost, thats crazy. I see they just signed a quarterback from southern Iowa thats suppose to be a stud, I think he has the state record in quite a few things. The best thing about college wrestling is most of those kids that wrestle for Iowa, ISU, and Minnesota I remember watching at State wrestling when they were in HS. Says something about this state when it comes to the sport of wrestling. I was there when LeClare and Borschel became four timers, was there when C.J. Ettleson and Mack Reiter did it too. When Morningstar was a junior he beat one of my best friends in the finals, that was a good match. Matt Fields is engaged and gonna marry a girl that I graduated with. That Ballweg, who wrestles behind Metcalf, his dad is my boss at work. I dont know if you have ever been to State wrestling but its awesome, not as good as when it was in the Barn but it is still pretty fun. They did an article in Sports Illustrated about high school wrestling in Iowa and I think it was a girl from Osage who put it best, 'If you want to rob the bank in Iowa, do it during State Wrestling.'
Ricochet-Jay, Brands is a pyscho but in my opinion he is more of a motivater than Zalesky. Zalesky was a great technian, but when he didn't want help from Gable, I didnt care much for him. Brands will put the program back where it was I think.
