    Re: Harold Nichols open

    This is so typical of our wrestling program. It sounds like we will have some top notch wrestlers here on Saturday, but who would know?? If Minnesota is bringing their starters, that is worth the effort to attend right there. We are finally getting somewhere on the mat, and a nice improvement in recruiting this year, but the website and marketing remain same old same old. Someone needs a kick in the pants to increase efforts build on the momentum on the mat and move the program to a higher level of attention.

    Re: Harold Nichols open

    Teams don't have to announce who and if they are coming until the very end. West Virginia is staying for the Open and I assume UNI will bring some guys.

    Hell, there will be guys changing weight classes after weigh-in. Such is the life of an early-season open tournament.

    Re: Harold Nichols open

    My point is that we are hosting a decent tournament, which will include some good college wrestlers, and I have seen no promotion or publicity about it. Darn shame for a school with this history in wrestling and for a program trying to get back to national status.

    All of those teams can be clicked on and you can see the wrestlers.

    It has nothing to do with ISU's history, promotion, or marketing.

    This is an event -- like so many other early-season open tournaments -- where you literally don't know who's all going to be competing until they actually show up on Saturday morning to weigh in.

    David Thorn of Minnesota is out, but sounds like rest of Minnesota starters will be here.

    Re: Harold Nichols open

    Still, the main point is that it is a big event for which we have heard nothing.

    The Harold Nichols Open is not a big event.

    Re: Harold Nichols open

    Whenever top-ranked NCAA athletes compete, I consider it a big event. It may not be the national championship for men's basketball, but it is an event that is big enough to merit some promotion. Which again, is the main point.

    You know, because there may be almost 10 All-Americans in the entire field. Go to hell, Southern Scuffle. The Harold Nichols Open is where the big boys play.
