Why any kid from Iowa would choose Virg Tech to wrestle is beyond me. I was stunned to see Zalesky leave Iowa after his release. Hell, the guy coached 3 NCAA championship teams in 11 years, but that is not good enough for Iowa.
Incidentally, Iowa is going to be in real competition with Iowa State now that Cael Sanderson is the new head coach--my prediction heard here first.
The only reason they went there is because of Brands. I remain skeptical of how good of a coach he is. But now with Dan Gable being his assistant I think he will be Head Coach in name only.
It may be first on FR, but I think this has been common knowledge in the wrestling world for a while. What a quick coaching maelstrom took place there with everyone panicking to get who they wanted. ISU was NOT going to lose Cael to Iowa (I don't know how realistic that scenario was, but it got things moving).
