    Great news for the sport. Hopefully they can sustain this long-term.

    Great news. Wonder if Bobby played a part. I think he's still at ISU but I can't remember what he's doing. Anybody know?

    Re: Arizona State reinstates wrestling

    In the local paper the ASU head coach mentioned all the support ASU Wrestling has received from other D1 programs. Apparently the coaches from other schools were lobbying for ASU instead of trying to recruit their wrestlers. I can't imagine this happening in basketball.

    looks like the gazette is late to the story here
    Arizona State move a worrisome blow to wrestling | GazetteOnline.com - Cedar Rapids, Iowa City

    good for a laugh that they report about it the day after it is reinstated.

    I'm going to call out Madclone here. Where's your no one will support the sport if Iowa wins it argument?

    Re: Arizona State reinstates wrestling

    Interesting...ample financial backing from baseball supporters was not enough to save baseball at ISU...

    Interesting. On a side note, ASU was selling t-shirts at their pool today with "Save ASU Swimming" on them. We'll see if they have the same luck.

    Nice illogical argument. What does Iowa's winning the NCAA have to do with saving ASU's program?? It was a function of boosters in the state that carried the day . . .not frickin Iowa. Geeeez.

    Re: Arizona State reinstates wrestling

    A big article in the Arizona Repbulic yesterday that Jerry Colangelo (former Suns and D-Backs owner) was uncovered to be a big reason for the reinstatement of wrestling at ASU. He's told the school that he'll make sure the sport is funded.
