As a neutral observer, I see Cael has got his guys wrestling at full tilt, believing in themselves, and IMPROVING after every match. Can't say the same for Iowa right now, but this is a down year. In case anyone needed to be reminded, this happens to all teams eventually.
This thread stinks of sour grapes and "great coaches are made from winning titles" machismo---these are gasps for air by a few veteran posters who are feeling the sting of the end of an era of "domination" (at least for now) and maybe are also having trouble adjusting to relatively newer posters who have a lot to say and happen to be contributing quite a bit. Now, nobody likes to see a downturn in their team's performance but IMO you have to give full props (without underhanded, b.s. sniping) when a program like PSU gets its shit together and competes hard, "double" recruiting class or not. At the same time, PSU fans better enjoy this crop of athletes they have now while they have got them, because it seems obvious (at least to me) that this group is just going to smash the hell out of everyone for the next few years and then things may (or may not) get leaner. This is a rare class of guys.
I read just about every thread on here, post rarely, and almost always keep my posting about the wrestling only, but I felt the need to point out some surprising and stupid stuff going on here.
