    why no wrestling posters available at the game yesterday?

    i am a little put off by the fact that i went to every home football game, and attended yesterdays game in Hilton, and i have yet to see our athletics dept handing out this years wrestling poster. the people working the booths yesterday gave me a magnet and said that's all they have-which i know is false from having read some threads on here.

    we have the #2 team in the country, and we don't embrace and promote them as a university? i don't get it.

    i realize it was a basketball game i was attending, but there were gymnastics posters available-why not our wrestlers???

    can anyone help me out? i live 3 hrs away so it's not like i can just go to campus and get one on monday either.

    Maybe they were out of them wherever it was you looked?

    This! It gets so old! Maybe they were out of posters. I know they don't get them in till after football sason so getting one at a football game would have been impossible, and every basketball game I've been to they have had posters out. If you need one you can send a letter or email to the marketing department and they will send you one for free.

    If they ran out then check the Jacobsen building next time. They always seem to have posters for all sports there.

    That's not a new motto.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    I would love to see us push wrestling more. It would be good for school pride.

    The wrestlers signed my poster at the Baylor FB game. I remember Long, Varner, Z, are Sorenson were there.

    Not sure why but I am certain Gmac had something to do with it. One more thing for the complainers to add to their list.....

    Just a reminder to stay on topic. Like I said, we should take pride in our wrestling team.

    From a business perspective, I understand not putting money into a sport that doesn't make a profit.

    Re: why no wrestling posters available at the game yesterday?

    wish i knew how to multiquote.

    1st off, maybe it is ******** but so what? why wouldn't we promote the sports program that has more tradition than all others combined at ISU

    2nd, if they don't come out until after football, how did melvin get his signed at homecoming??

    3rd-they weren't out-i asked-they didn't have any out. they also had no idea where i could get one.

    4th-thanks for the input cykid and thanks for asking for support lindency-i will check it out next time in ames

    5th-as for wasting money, what costs are involved in taking already printed posters and setting them on a table for people to take? i would assume they get printed by the thousands to lower cost so there has to be some SOMEWHERE? also, why did they have the gymnastics poster because i am willing to bet it loses more money then wrestling.

    If they ran out of posters already, why print more when the season is half over? That costs money.

    Multiquote: The little button next to the reply button on each post. Hit that on each post you want to quote, then hit either Quote or Reply and it'll list everything.

    Again, if they printed a bunch off, and they're already out, why print more?

    Good question. They have tons of wrestling posters, as there were stacks of them available at the Illinois dual. Sounds like they were too lazy, or didn't think to get them out.
