    Askrens and ISU

    A Hawkeye fan that I work with claims the Askrens originally wanted to go to ISU rather than Mizzou. Said that their Dad even had a Cyclone logo tatooed on his ankle when they said they were going there. Claimed that Bobby D. didn't show any interest in signing them. Can't believe he wouldn't have wanted these two studs. What's the real story on how they ended up in Columbia??

    Re: Askrens and ISU

    I found this in a chat at the Mizzou site. Don't know any more than that though.

    Javier, Madison, WIsconsin:
    Why did you pick Missouri over top ranked wrestling programs like Iowa, Minnesota or Oklahoma State, or your home state Wisconsin? If you could do it over, would you still do the same? Ben Askren: The very top echelon programs didn't really give me that much of a look because I wasn't that great in high school. I chose Missouri because I liked everything about it. I think I would have made the same choice if I had it to do over again.

    That is just the thing. He wasn't an entirely impressive prep wrestler, at least, not more so than the guys ISU was giving interest too at the time. The only real connection the Askens have to the state is they were born here. Ceder Rapids.
