Totally agree. There is little loyalty in the pros, and I understand what the wrestling coach was trying to convey, but a poor choice of words.
so when some powerhouse college in wrestling like Iowa, for example come calling for him to be their head coach.lets see if it still rings true.
No Excuses,'' 11 x National Campions anyday,anytime ,anywhere.
PSU is the powerhouse in wrestling. Two time defending NCAA champs.
Thanks, just putting it out there ,that he would also consider a change for what he would perceive a better situation. if presented. I thought IOWA was the Nat'l Powerhouse in wrestling are is that so yesteryear ?
You mean PSU is best at grown men cavorting about and playing grab-ass in in tight fitting nylons?
No. Just three years ago.
Division I Wrestling Championship History at NCAA.com
It’s kind of like saying Saban will get recruited away when a big time program like Notre Dame comes calling (alright, maybe not that bad). PSU is coached by Cael Sanderson, the only wrestler to go undefeated all 4 years in college. They’re back to back defending NCAA champs, and Taylor (So), Ruth (So), and Molinaro (Sr) finished 1-2-3 for the Dan Hodge Trophy. And they have Morgan MacIntosh coming up too who is the most dominant wrestler I think I’ve seen in HS in CA. From a wrestling perspective, PSU is the place to be right now.
Edit: How that qualifies Sanderson to be an expert on the NFL draft is another matter...

Even I knew that...and the only sport I love and watch is CFB, lol.
I do read though...
"Here are provided seats of meditative joy, where shall rise again the destined reign of Troy." Virgil
Thanks TLK that's what I thought,good looking out .so PSU is a johnny come lately to the ball.sort of like oREGON.
Um, no. As long as Cael is there they will be at the top. Dude was arguably the greatest college wrestler of all time, he has the undefeated record to prove it. Will do for PSU what Gable did for Iowa.
I thought Dan Gable went undefeated.
Didn't he flip the fuck out after that loss? Thought I saw a documentary or something about it.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
What about the Junkyard Dog ?
Wasn't he undefeated ?
Chief Jay Strongbow ?
Andre the Giant had to have been undefeated right ?
Yep, but it was his last collegiate match so he it wasn't really noticed as he took it out on international competition where wrestling is only popular to die-hards.
Lost to a U-dub guy I think, proving once again, the Pac owns the B1G when it counts
I thought that it was Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka off the top rope!
Ha ha- I was going to list him but couldn't remember how to spell his last name.
I'm going to be doing my best "Nature Boy" Ric Flair today if the Redd news goes as expected-"Wooooooooookoooooooo!"
Um, yes. "Johnny come lately" describes a program that has just recently joined the elite ranks ... like PSU the last couple of years. Oklahoma State is by-far the most dominant wrestling program in the nation, followed by Iowa.

After reading his wikipedia page, I'm REALLY surprised that he left the HC position at his alma mater (Iowa State) for PSU.
Please don't omit the great Abdullah the Butcher from that list of athletes.
I don't remember him. I remember the Iron Shiek with the Camel Clutch, though.
It was a no brainer so to speak... think of it as similar to Lane leaving Tenn for SC. The NE is stacked with top wrestling talent and selling PSU is way easier then trying to get kids out to Ames Iowa. Probably could have been successful at either place, when a legend walks into your living room, hard to say no.
LOL Emper- good pull.
He's about as far back as I can remember, along with "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes and Haystacks Calhoun.
