Thread: Long to return to Penn State wrestling

    I think this discussion is based on error. I cannot imagine Cael would take Long back. I think it was reasonable to give a second chance/fresh start (I realize at ISU it was more than a second chance) to a guy that he had originally recruited and had some kind of a relationship with. He was given a short leash. He broke that leash. To take him back again now would have all kinds of bad ripple effects. No way in the world Cael would do that. I don't know what the origin of this rumor is, but I'm sure it's groundless.

    Has he had his trial in Centre County yet? I don't want to pry into the young man's personal life, but with all that has happened at PSU in the last year would they bring back someone charged with sex crimes? As a PSU fan, this story seems dubious. I doubt the athletic department would court the potential negative PR, unless there is more to that story than we learned from the papers. I certainly pull for the young man to get his act together, and would love to be able to see him wrestle at PSU or anywhere else, as he was one of the most exciting wrestlers in the country (his quarterfinal pin of Sentes in a match he was down was the turning point at nationals last year. Penn State took off from there.)

    This isn't your first exposure to ZZ is it?

    Three pages of responses to this? Come on people.

    I had the same thought. Zz has a history with making bizarre posts related to Sanderson.

    What's so bizarre about it? It'll probably happen. Cael's a forgive and forget type of guy.

    I don't understand it personally. They've got Megaludis and Gulibon to man the light weights, they have all the momentum and plenty of talent. I guess he could wrestle at 141, but is it really worth it? They're line up is nuts enough next year.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I hope this is just speculation. If someone is going to give Long a shot, it shouldn't be PSU. He had his chance there and blew it.

    However, he's still a fup and shouldnt be allowed on any team until he finishes a treatment program of some kind.
    So that might imply that she filed rape charges to save her marriage. This is a mess & a half.

PSU has shown it can win without a 133, 141 and essentially without a 197.
    And none of this is considering that some guys on the team & some parents of the wrestlers felt that after awhile that AL was not a good influence. I do not think he would be welcome back by his teammates.
