    Big Towel has been running this country for decades, and those in the know are too afraid to speak about it.  TODAY I TAKE A STAND!!

    He refused to sell out his wrestlers to save his own behind and he was one of the biggest title IX opponents. I'll always be a J Rob fan.

    I am sure he is a great guy but I would be more worried about the loss of Russell than excited about his hire. National coach for 2 cycles and we sucked the entire time. Iowa State got progressively worse each year he was the head coach. Maybe some guys are more suited to be assistant coaches. Hopefully this is the case but his track record really isn't that impressive.

    You're third sentence is the absolute truth.  I spent little over decade in k-12, most as an AD.  Remember a volleyball coach I hired at beginning, he asked if I was to say what is the one biggest obstacle to building something great......without hesitation I said parents.  You can't do it without them, but they can easily be the biggest roadblock, especially in today's environment.

    In my opinion KJ is simply not the big-picture CEO type that is required to run a national program at a high level. That's very different than being an assistant to one of the best CEO's in college wrestling in Sean Bormet though. I think he will excel in this role and be an absolute beast for them on the recruiting trail.

    Tough to give him the credit for that success when the Regional Training Centers got funded and kept most of those athletes training on campuses. Hard to deny the impact of the Regional Training Centers influence.
    At one time not long ago there was talk of Cox being our p4p best, unseating Kyle Snyder and being the only person on the planet with a chance to beat Sadulaev. Do you think there is a possible argument that Cox has not gotten better?

    wpialchamp reacted to mspart in I want Cox vs Sadulaev   
    Agreed.  Sadulaev would not be much troubled by Cox I don' think.  I think Cox would have trouble with Snyder, Mohamadian, and the rest of the top competitors in 97kg.  I have not been on the Cox is the greatest  train yet.  He has to do more than whine and be angry.  His wins at the trials were not that stellar over Moore.  Moore did not score, but Cox did not tech either.  If he was the greatest, he would have teched Moore without trouble. 
    We'll see when and if he decides to go 97 before 2024 olympic trials.

    Intriguing match of course, but I have Sadulaev comfortably, similar to his latest match with Snyder.  The Tank at this stage is the p4p, and until this match happens, it's all just wishing and dreaming.  That is, he'll also have to get by Snyder first, and, in a best of 3, it will be exceedingly difficult for Cox.

    I am an academic. The content of your comment leads me to believe that you must also travel in similar circles. Here's a riddle for you. What similar attributes do data and a prisoner share? The answer? Both will tell you exactly what you want to hear if you torture either of them long enough.

    About the same odds as Iowa becoming the top academic program in the country and dropping wrestling.  Pick one, ya can't have both.  :(
