    Re: ISU Wouldn't Mind Seeing Full House At Carver-Hawkeye

    Hasn't Cale had Hilton set up so only half of the arena is used and the other half is curtained off? Is that for every meet?

    Yes, and yes (but I'm guessing an exception would be made if Iowa came to town and the crowd was expected to be huge).


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    Hilton (normally 14,300) is set up for 8,000 for wrestling. For the Iowa dual last year, it was changed to accommodate 9,000 -- actual attendance was 8,998.

    With the exception of Iowa duals, I can't remember the last time there were more than 5,000 at an event. MAYBE for Heskett and Cael's last home dual.

    The current setup makes perfect sense.

    Re: ISU Wouldn't Mind Seeing Full House At Carver-Hawkeye

    yeah, especially since this way more people get to be closer to the mat. With the mat down on one end of hilton (instead of the middle like the iowa dual 3 years ago) three sets of seats are right next to the mat, instead of two. Carver is a nice wrestling arena (and by that i mean the seat arrangement is nice...) since all the seats are essentially funnelled down to the mat

    Also, they would have a lot of mad season ticket holders if they moved the mat to the middle of Hilton for one meet unless they changed the seating for it.

    I believe Cael said he would rather have 8,000 people crammed into half of the arena than 11,000 spread out over the whole arena.

    I haven't had the chance to look - is there likely a live intermat radio feed?
