    ISU gets a commitment from the #1 ranked heavyweight.

    Here's my only question. What's a Go-Hawk? How is that even a school mascot?



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Do their cheerleaders say "Let's go Go-Hawks!"?

    Re: ISU gets a commitment from the #1 ranked heavyweight.

    Having spent 4 of the most fun years of my life in Waverly, I often wondered that myself. The most logical (if you can call it that) explanation that I heard was that Waverly was half way between Minneapolis and Iowa City, so they took half of each school's nickname and came up with Go(phers)-Hawks.
    Don't know if that is accurate or not.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I had a friend in college from Waverly, and from what I understand you are pretty close. I was told that before Waverly and Shell Rock schools consolidated, one school was the gophers and the other was the hawks and they combined the two nicknames when they became a single school. So, same result, just a little different way of getting there.

    Not a huge fan of Wartburg either, if it makes much difference. :)

    Re: ISU gets a commitment from the #1 ranked heavyweight.

    not really ... I just knew Luther and Wartburg weren't big fans of each other.

    this has been a pretty useless exchange, but at least Wrestling gets to stay on the front page for a little while longer

    Do they still have any of the Ballwegs at WSR? They were doing really well a couple of years ago.

    If there is any left they are going to Iowa. I heard they recruited the oldest one to go to Iowa just so the younger and better ones would too.
