Every coach, wrestler, manager, parent or sibling associated with the sport knew McCool. We don’t know the name of the team yet, nor do we know how much money he’ll actually be earning. I have covered wrestling for the Register since 1984.
The first three games are the traditional warmups. While not forgetting last year’s anomaly at Arkansas State, the Aggies should be 3-0 going into their second three games.

The big surprise of the 2007 season is the rapid decent of the Iowa State basketball into second position. This is really turning into a banner year for the Cyclones and opens up the possibility of two perfect seasons going 1-2 in the final rankings. This is a school from the powerhouse Big 12 that has achieved the impossible by losing to both Kent State and Northern Iowa in consecutive weeks. The best hope for Iowa State rests on September 22 with a game against Toledo. Most schools that find their way into the Futility Rankings are heavily focused on basketball. Iowa State is focused simply on losing.
This time, our series takes us to Ames, Iowa, home of the Cyclones. It may not sound like much, but Ames has plenty to offer the football fans of America.
