Our wrestlers have the ability to compete on the national stage (tournament right now). How can you say that someone like Weatherman is not good? He upset two people just to get to the quarter finals. Or Moreno for that matter, beating a kid that had beat him earlier in the year and showing up this morning and dominating his opponent.
Gadson had a mental mistake yesterday but I dont care about that because of the amount of the emotional turmoil he must have going on, my god I would not ever WISH anyone let alone myself be in that place.
Max Mayfield STOLE a spot at the big 12 tournament just to MAKE it to the NCAA. To me that shows heart, and spirit and I am proud to cheer him on.
Has Luke wrestled up to standards this year? No, he hasnt and I am sure he would be the first to admit but for you to deem him "not good" is ridiculous. All he does is go out and try, why would you wish to tear these KIDS down who are choosing to wrestle for us?
Has KJ improved our situation, maybe, maybe not it is still to be determined but I would say that we are wrestling SURPRISINGLY well right now and have been for over the last month. A month ago if I had asked how many people we would have down at Nationals, I am sure 90% of this board would have been happy with 5. I am proud of the kids for battling, I am proud of KJ for showing us that he doesnt give a damn what the public think and actually just worries about getting his wrestlers ready to roll.
Have I enjoyed the last few years of Iowa State wrestling, Yes and No, but the amount of factors that go into that are a lot. In the end, we are good. I believe in our program and that we are SLOWLY turning the corner. Instant success does not happen but our kids show heart and I am proud of them. Your negativity is stupid, your attitude is terrible, and I for one do not enjoy reading this crap. We are supposed to support KIDS and you wish to tear them down. Congratulations.
Okay... let me clarify, yes there might have been a few good matches at the tournament for some of our wrestlers, but as a whole its crazy to think we have no more wrestlers on the championship side of the bracket. Were isu, were known for being really good at wrestling, were known for being in the hunt for the team title. We haven't been anywhere close to being in the hunt over the past few years and haven't been close to having someone compete for a title. For me, that's just crazy.. just drives me absolutely crazy
