    Wrestling preview

    I wrote a preview of this weekend's Iowa, Iowa State wrestling dual for the Iowa State Daily.

    Here are a couple of the key quotes:
    “The rivalry is huge. I like to think it’s the biggest non-football, non-basketball rivalry in college sports,” said ISU head coach Cael Sanderson. “So we take a lot of pride in that, and we’re excited for the opportunity. I think it steps it up about 10 notches that they’re ranked No. 1 and we’re ranked No. 2.”

    “The hostility is going to be 10 times the level I’m used to,” [Tyler] Clark said. “I’m going to be in a stadium full of boos, but it’s going to be fun because I’m going to go out in front of their home crowd and tear someone’s head off. So I’m pumped.”

    WRESTLING: State battle for No. 1

    I'd post the story on here, but then we wouldn't get the page view, which wouldn't help dwindling newspaper advertising profits (And its technically infringement).

    A couple large talking points not mentioned in my story, but addressed in sidebars:
    -Iowa's 197-pound starter Chad Beatty will not wrestle due to a knee injury
    -Iowa State's Mitch Mueller will wrestle after missing two meets due to illness. Cael said told me he is fine, but they were just being cautious since it is early in the season

    I think Clark needs to shut his mouth until you prove it on the mat. The last thing those nutjobs need over in Iowa City is bulletin board material and I can almost guarantee Brands makes sure everyone of them sees what he said.
