    How 'bout our wrestlers?

    Basketball's the money maker, and that's what gets most of the attention. But our wrestlers are very quickly putting together one of the better seasons in recent memory. After a slow start to the season, they've taken first at Midlands, third at the national duals, losing to the eventual champs in the semifinals, and now sit at 3-0 in conference after completing a weekend sweep of #8 Oklahoma (27-9) and #4 Oklahoma State (21-12). The win over Oklahoma State being their second win over the Cowboys this year. They still have a very difficult dual left against Missouri, but this team looks strong and poised to make a move.

    The Mizzou dual will be tough but they're setting themselves up to be in a good position to get a lot of guys to Nationals if they wrestle well at the conference meet. I'm anxious to see what they can do over the rest of the season.

    Re: How 'bout our wrestlers?

    I think the most exciting thing is we are starting 6 freshman. To have the kind of success they're having as a team is incredible. We will lose 3 All-Americans next season but could be even better next season. The way they are wrestling now, we have a shot at pulling out a national championship. We will need a couple upsets but it is not completely out of the question. All of the freshman are ranked in the top 20 and are improving at a steady pace. Cael has something special and will get ISU wrestling back on top sometime in the next 2 or 3 seasons.
