With the big weekend of wrestling combined with the weather that most of us in the Midwest are experiencing, I thought a media guide for all of the wrestling going on was in order. There is a lot of wrestling to keep us entertained. Tonight BTN will get the college wrestling weekend started off with Ohio State at Wisconsin at 8 PM. That should be a very good dual meet to watch.
Thomas Gilman of the Hawkeye Wrestling Club will be action Saturday morning at the Matteo Pellicone in Rome, Italy. The first round will begin at 4 AM CST. FloWrestling will have full coverage on their premium service. I will keep results updated on Facebook, Twitter, and HawkeyeReport.com under my thread: Gilman, Ragan, and Miracle to compete in Rome: RESULTS.
On Saturday, Iowa will be hosting Nebraska in a big dual meet at 8 PM. BTN will cover the meet live. Flo and BTN Plus will have the meet on their premium service. AM 800 KXIC will have the meet on iHeartRadio.com with Steven Grace and Mark Ironside. Iowa-Nebraska dual meets are always entertaining. Indiana is at Northwestern on BTN at 1:30.
Incoming Iowa Wrestling recruits are competing Friday and Saturday. All of the tournaments our recruits are competing in are covered by TrackWrestling. You can find the complete schedule for our recruits on my blog from yesterday: Iowa recruits in action: January 17-18.
Maryland at Michigan State will be on BTN Sunday at 2 PM.
As a wrestling fan, I am grateful for all of the media coverage that our sport of wrestling has now compared to the past. It does not matter where you live, you can see a lot of great wrestling around the country and even the world.
And just a reminder that Iowa will host Ohio State on Friday, January 24 and Penn State on Friday, January 31. Not that any of us Iowa Wrestling fans would forget.
Have a great weekend.
