  2. I listened to your last podcast on Vegas and was a little disappointed you guys don’t know the age groups that get to go to Fargo it’s cadet and juniors only and Ross needs to read the rule books on freestyle and Greco he makes it sound like it’s to hard to understand and at USA Nationals and Vegas you didn’t mention how the cadets any younger Iowa kids did , on USA wrestling web sight all the information on age groups for all divisions Uww events has different age groups than the USA wrestling events , I heard a lot I’m not sure , with a little studying of the rules you would be giving facts not guessing

    • It wasn’t Ross that made the comments, it was me. For someone who ONLY watches folkstyle, freestyle rules can be a little confusing. I also found the link to the age groups ( thanks for pointing that out. Again, for someone who doesn’t follow closely or is new to the sport, it can be very confusing.

      Thanks for listening!

  3. Will all 3 days of the state wrestling tournament be televised? I have Dish Network and was wondering where I would be able to find it on Dish

  5. I just purchased the $65 Season Pass, but cannot for the life of me, figure out how to get in? I know my password, and assumed my User Name was my email address? It just keeps telling me, I’ve entered invalid information? I know the PW is correct, but guess I’m not sure what to use for User Name…it never asked me to pick a user name? Please let me know how to access…Thx, Kris. My email….thanks what I thought would be User Name?

  8. I’m going to grin and bear it and purchase a Flo pass, but will Nic (or anyone else) be doing any kind of play by play or updated results for UNI this weekend at the Scuffle? Thanks.

  9. Hi
    Anyone gor any idea if its possible for a Norwegian wrestler to get a year of wrestling in Iowa as a exchange student?
    Asking on behalf of my son.
    He,s currently on the national cadet team in Greco Roman. And this selsom he finished 4th in the national champs.
    Aiming higher for the upcoming in february.
    Weighs 75kg
    Very comitted to wrestling and We borg think he would benefit from a year abroad.

  10. Need help: Our father, John Byers of Wyoming, Iowa passed away a few days ago. We are all befuddled trying to remember his awards…. We know he was inducted into the IHSAA Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1990 but are trying to figure out if he was also in the IHSAA Coaches and Officials Hall of Fame or if those two things are the same thing??? Someone please let us know. Thanks!

    • Hi there, some of the Ads on our website are not controlled by IAwrestle, but are based off of user viewing history. IAwrestle has not endorsed either candidate and does not plan to make any political comments other than to state that as a company we are neutral to all parties. This is a website for wrestling and that’s what we will stick to.


  11. Many of kids who are in preseason ranking list won’t likely even make the weight class they are ranked in these lists so don’t waste too much time concerning yourself with them.

  12. I’m shocked Tyler Van Houten, from Panorama didn’t break the rankings. He holds 2 falls over Caleb Simacek, a win over Dylan Shuck in regulation on off season, a win over Tyler Decker from East Buc, as well as a win over South East Valleys 145 pound state qualifier, his name escapes me at the moment. All on top of that he’s a district qualifier who placed higher that Simacek at districts.

    • There are kids ranked at weights they won’t ever be wrestling at either so wouldn’t put a lot of concern into these preseason rankings.

    • Looks like several rankings that concern me. I see Luke House from Sigourney is ranked at 126. Not a chance. I would rather have seen Tyler Strasser North Mahaska there. He does have 3 pins/MD over kids that beat House.

  13. Hey Tony. Us fans are all up in arms about the lack of stalling calls ruining the sport. How about an interview with Chuck Yagla. I saw him at the Ntioanl Duals so he is familiar with the fans’ displeasure.


    • Hi John. Cross Face usually airs Wednesday nights at 5:30 PM (Central). This week was an exception. If you follow our Twitter accoutnt, @IAWrestle, you can get updates there. If something comes up and we cancel that night’s show we usually put the notice out there.
