    Purdue Wrestling

    I don't think we have scene the best Cashe' Quiroga for several years due to injury or illness. In saying that I do believe we will see him very soon and I do believe he is the best person for what ever weight he chooses to go. If he isn't rest assured Purdue will be well represented at that weight because of Cashe' pushing that individual. No disrespect to the other individuals (they are tough for sure) but my money is on Cashe' money, as I said either way they are going to be tough.
