I wonder if Mike Zadick or Brent Metcalf throw their hat in the ring for SDSU. Both have the wrestling credentials. And I know Mike has had a ton of assistant coaching experience.
Brent has less coaching experience, and Brent is only a volunteer with the Cyclones, and no doubt he would improve his financial circumstances by taking a job with the Jack Rabbits.

Metcalf and Zadick are well paid by Cyclone RTC and Iowa State.

Agree. The non-Big 10 Teams need to stay relevant for the long-term health of D1 Wrestling. Moves like this hurt.

I agree with you completely about non-Big Ten teams, that is extremely important for the health of the sport.  But I don't think this automatically is bad.  The administration at SDSU is supportive of wrestling and Bono had it on the rise.  And he left on a peak year.  If they make a good hire there's no reason they can't keep the ball rolling.  And with Bono laying a solid foundation they should be able to attract quality applicants.

At the time Bono was hired, Tony Ersland and Troy Steiner were applicants that were passed over. And that was to take over a program completely lacking D1 talent. This team has a returning national champion and 3 other underclassmen qualifiers. They have 2 top 40ish kids signed to NLI’s. And they have an AD strongly committed to the sport of wrestling.

Getting quality applicants is not going to be a problem.

the 2 top 40 NLI mean nothing. They won’t go if they were wanting bono. We have seen this issue a couple times haven’t we?

D1 is dead. It’s only big 10.

Although I see part of your point, I think Gross, Yianna D, Zahid and Macchiavello showed that isnt entirely true.

Ohio and PA have the best HS wrestlers, so it’s not surprising they are the two best teams. Other than them, everyone in the B10 is beatable.

true. It’s a big drop off after the top 3 or so college teams.

Not to mention, NC State was on the podium and only didn’t outright beat Michigan (#4 big ten) because of 2 team point deductions.

Missouri with two more wins (Lavallee, Erneste) could’ve even pushed Michigan down further.

Oklahoma State will also be right in the mix next year, possibly with 10 ranked guys just like last season, when they ended with 8 AAs

Wyoming is on the rise, as is SDSU

There was an all ACC final for the first time

VT outperformed expectations and have solid recruits

Cornell overperformed and have 5 AAs on the team next season, 3 of whom are freshman this year. They also have arujao coming in. Cornell can realistically have 6 AAs and 3 title contenders next year.

My posts in general as of late have been more negative and condescending— not really my style. I’ll try to be more optimistic and positive going forward.

That's an interesting name outside of the obvious choices. Not much success so far where he is, but that is not an easy job by any means.
