They call him Cael...

Recommended Posts

Tom, John, Terry, Bill, Brian, etc....   pretty common names so you use their last.  Sanderson is common so you go with Cael.  You might be overthinking it.

 

When Cael gets a little older, they'll refer to him as CSan like JRob.  But he hasn't earned it yet.

It's mostly this, but if Penn State's head coach wasn't the greatest college wrestler of all time who won an Olympic gold then he would probably be referred to by his last name.  Cael associates him with the competing legend he was, it's not a slight.  Silly post, I feel silly responding.

He has more championships than JRob.

Cael is no longer that rare a name. In fact I had to ask a friend what the words "Cael at basketball practice" meant on facebook.

Of course, I have never met anyone, who saw Uetake compete, say Cael was the greatest college wrestler ever.

they still called him cael when he was at Iowa city and was a fairly pedestrian head coach.

 

Three conference titles, three top five NCAA finishes and an average of five all Americans a year in his three years at Iowa State ...  many coaches would gladly give up their last names and possibly a testicle or two if they could be that kind of pedestrian.

Posts mention Brands, Dresser, Flynn, Ryan, Smith. But when the coach from Penn State is mentioned, they call him Cael.

 

Very interesting...

And Cael is easier to type than Sanderson

 

If autocorrect doesn't make ti Carl.....

His last name does contain three syllables.  Might as well simplify.
