    Long Pulls Stunner; Three Cyclones To NCAA Finals

    OMAHA, Neb. – For Iowa State’s wrestling team, Friday’s action at the NCAA Wrestling Championships was truly a roller coaster ride. The peak of the day’s up-and-down journey saw the Cyclone trio of Andrew Long (125 pounds), Jake Varner (197) and Dave Zabriskie (HWT) sweep into Saturday’s championship round. Their efforts propelled ISU into third place after the first two days of the competition. Iowa State has tallied 67 points. Iowa leads with 120 ˝ points. Cornell is second with 75 points.

    The valley of the day’s action was the loss of Nick Fanthorpe (133), Mitch Mueller (149) and Jon Reader (165) in narrow defeats in matches in which the winner earned All-America honors. Consequently, the Cyclones have no wrestlers in the consolation round.

    I am sure this information has been posted. What TV is there for tonight? I don't think I get ESPNU. Is it on anything else?

    The finals are broadcast on the regular ESPN. At least I have them listed here in Ames.

    Varner is a stud. Wish our other wrestlers could develop his sort of swagger.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    He's a special wrestler. Didn't develop that, he's had it. 4 time finalist. Lost his sophomore year in a ride out. He's just that good. I hope he, Dave, and Andrew get the hardware.

    Long has it as well as Z. Reader shows sparks of it, and that's when he's wrestling well. From what I've heard, it seems like Weatherman has the swagger as well, but I haven't seen anything to back that up.
