You and John need to study up on your college and Olympic sports history. Gable, while a very good college coach and certainly has won more NCAA D-I team titles than almost any other coach in the last 40 years, retired trailing a guy that coached part-time while teaching junior high school.
I'm not trying to take credit for a distant cousin, but did this other guy get the Hall of Fame building named after him? Gable at least created a dynasty as far as Iowans are concerned.
Don't look at me, I just work here.

Seriously, Gable coached at the University of Iowa, so much for knowing what you cousin does. The guy that is Iowa States all-time great coach was actually Gables coach.

So, if you are his cousin, I feel bad that you most likely never met your other cousin, what a shame that was.

BTW, If you meant the other coach that piled up the NCAA D-I titles, many consider him the father of his sport in college, coached the person most consider the greatest athlete in the world at his sport and has doubled the coach with the second most D-I titles at his University, that coach which was second should have picked up the slack, although many in this country consider him the greateast college coach and certainly the most influential college coach ever and strangely enough, he actualy coached this guy that doubled his NCAA D-I titles.

Far enough, even though you wanted to run me over with a bus just a few minutes ago on another thread.
