    That was a pretty quick way for them to raise some money for their wrestling club.

    They no doubt do!

    My bro is plugged into these things and he says their poorly run and funded wrestling club is no longer a dirty little secret. It is now front and center as a problem. Sounds like they have gotten things moving in the right direction in a hurry.

    Thank goodness for the Coach Dresser so we will not fall further behind--just the opposite!!!

    For that kind of money I would have rather paid to see him take the stand during the Meyer trial.

    Jeez, I guess he was right. Iowa lured Mark Perry away from the #1 assistant job at Illinois to coach the Hawkeye Wrestling Club. Fun times are ahead in college wrestling.

    I think they were feeling the heat a little bit after PSU's dominance at NCAAs again this year, tOSU's coming facility upgrades,plus our coaching changes and recommitment to wrestling. We've started a bit of an arms race.

    I've always liked Mark Perry, and having him around their program will be beneficial no doubt. I do think it is a little weird he is the HWC head coach, as he didn't wrestle freestyle at all post-college, although he was very good when he did wrestle freestyle in HS and College.

    I thought the same thing about Perry and coaching FRECO. I wouldn't think he is the best option for coaching the club. I'm sure they are thinking the benefits for Hawkeye wrestling will far outweigh any shortcomings in coaching FRECO.

    He may not have wrestled it much himself (post grad) but he's been coaching freestyle for nearly 10 years with success. It isn't any more weird than hiring a guy who's never coached before and paying him big money to run our club program. And that's not a knock on Metcalf--I'm very, very pleased with that decision and hire.

    I think the Dresser hire and rise in financial commitment at ISU was as big of a catalyst to the changes in Iowa City than any other factor.
