    I don't think the seats too hot just yet. A little warm maybe. He hasnt had a chance to get his guys in the lineup yet and Caels leaving really killed the program. I think they'll bounce back. I think he gets this year and the next to get the program moving in the right direction before the look for someone else.

    The ONLY thing KJ has struggled with is recruiting, really. He's really done a great job getting results out of his wrestlers, in my opinion.

    I agree Gold and he really hasn't done that bad at recruiting. He's just not getting the same guys that Cael got. Here's a list of some of the guys that KJ has recruited.

    Joey Cozart
    Mike England
    Ryak Finch
    Kyven Gadsen
    Matt Gibson
    Luke Goettl
    Mike Moreno
    Trent Weatherman
    Logan Molina
    Bo Schlosser
    Tyler Swope
    Tanner Weatherman
    John Meeks

    There's some good wrestlers in that group. Specifically Cozart, Finch, Gadsen, Morneo, Tr Weatherman, Schlosser, Swope and Meeks.

    No, since you post those names I guess he hasn't. You can't expect everyone to have Cael-esque recruiting classes. Heck, if high schooler's were as aware of Jackson's great wrestling resume as they are of Cael's, he would probably be getting even better recruits. Too bad KJ's results are about 10 years older than Cael's.

    The assistant that KJ hires will go a long way with giving him a boost in recruiting if he makes the right choice. While Yero Washington is a great help in the room, NOBODY has heard of him. If you could send Kurt Backes, Donny Pritzlaff, Travis or Trent, or Jon Reader into the living room of a high schooler they might just remember when some of those guys wrestled and think ISU is the place for them.

    Not trying to talk negatively about Yero or Voelker but the kids in high school now have no idea who they are. Their dad's probably remember that Volker was a 2Xer but who listens to their dad?

    And probably about to get older.

    Over on theopenmat, fulsaasfan says that his source is telling him that a deal to make Donny a coach at ISU is in the works and could be finalized this week!

    fulsaasfan used to be a very credible source on HR, but now works for hawkeyenation and no longer posts on HR but still has a very good rep for wrestling information.

    So he leaves Wiscy because he wants to be head coach. Goes to ISU, but he'll be waiting awhile(barring termination) for the ISU head job. Perhaps just happy to land an assistant job this late.
