    Gotta disagree with you on this Brother Wiltz. I think he is a very serious candidate and I can't imagine that he would not be under serious consideration from the PSU administration. Seeing how he built his remarkable camp/clinic business from scratch, you know that he has the abiity to take a vision and bring it to sucesssful reality. Add this to his previous experience as an assistant coach at Ohio St. and Penn St., his strong ties to the State College Community and his connections with the best wrestler in the nation (the list of wrestlers working with him in his clinics is like a who's who of NCAA champions in the past 20 years) and I think he is pretty clearly PSU's best hope for returning to consistent glory. He was one of three finalist candidates the last go around. I hope PSU doesn't blow it this time.

    As tough as it is on the wrestlers, it's gotta be really tough on the assistants like Anspach who are running the day-to-day operations yet pretty much have no clue if the new coach will retain them.

    Unfortunately, lots of rumors today that Koll interviewed for the job in the past few days. Hope it's not true. The possibility of losing him and Cooperman (who I think went to Rutgers) is painful to us Cornell fans.

    You should be safe. Word is Koll declined the offer and is staying at Cornell, presumably with a salary that matches whatever PSU was going to offer him.

    Chertow definitely would be a great recruiter. He's personable, runs a great business (which coaching should be) and has the ability to draw from a deep talent pool for assistants that he has coached. I think he'd be a solid choice. I'd think he would be one of, if not the best recruiters out there. (Though, I could see some NCAA rules violations by being too proactive trying to get recruits!)

    Think what you want. Many factors out went into my statement. While I think Ken is a good guy(don't know him personally, I half expect a Birthday and Christmas card from him. Hell, he sends me more E-mail then my parents) I think there are much better choices out there. Flynn and Koll should be the top two and McCoy and Hughes should be the next two.

    1. the guy hasn't coached at a college in 20 years

    2. He has never been a head coach at a College (maybe not even a HS)

    3. He left a coaching position at PSU during the middle of the season.

    4. What he's making from his camps and TV stuff be matched at PSU?

    5. Throwing his name in the ring only futher bolsters his self-promotion

    1. the guy hasn't coached at a college in 20 years

    Yeah, but he does have 20 years worth of wrestling resources, including many elite young prospects.

    2. He has never been a head coach at a College (maybe not even a HS)

    He has, however, successfully managed a company, and running a wrestling team should be run like a business.

    3. He left a coaching position at PSU during the middle of the season.

    No defense there... lol.

    4. What he's making from his camps and TV stuff be matched at PSU?

    He is no different than J Robinson in this respect. He will still have his camps- and they would likely grow as a result of his position.

    5. Throwing his name in the ring only futher bolsters his self-promotion

    Yes, sure, but not as much as being the coach.

    Do I think he get the gig? No idea... I'd take your word for it before I made my own guess. Do I think he is qualified? Probably.. and he might even steal some good recruits from the Hawks.

    Penn State operates the wrestling camps. His summer stipend will be no where near his take from his camps.

    NCAA also controls coaching contact at wrestling camps to the extent I beleive there is control over how many and when they can be operated. He won't be able to grow the number and besides, PSU will control the revenue from anything he does outside of PSU paycheck. It's basically no different than the control over PSU faculty income. If a PSU researcher strikes a hit and is able to license a discovery, the university is going to take somewhere around 60% of the revenue from the venture. The "intellectual property" policy streches will beyond the mat.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I don't think that is true. "Cael Sanderson Iowa State Wrestling Camps" operate separate from ISU and it even says it on their site.

    J Robinson's camps are huge, operates probably close to the same size as Chertow's camps, and is owned by J, so I don't see why they would be able to limit Chertow's camps. He may not be able to walk around with PSU enrollment forms, but the NCAA would have a tough time restricting his business (I think)
