    No Wrestling on the Front Page during the B1G Tournament?

    Jon--How can there be no story on the B1G wrestling tournament? You have a couple stories on the Basketball team and another on the Football press conference from last week. Showing nothing of an Iowa team that is actually battling for a B1G Title.

    Wow, clever. Football > basketball too. Neither statement matters one bit, so what is your point? Anyone that does not think Iowa wrestling is popular does not follow the sport, clearly.

    That's 1,600 views, not 16,000. And that's about 20% of what the BB game thread had. How many of those views do you think are from the same, small group of guys refreshing the page?

    That would explain why there are only 11 different people commenting in that thread viewed 1,600 times.

    Yeah Ghost, no one cares about a sport that actually competes for B1G and National titles every year.

    The 11 people commenting are those giving the "play by play" for those that can not follow the coverage on the radio.

    What makes you think I have a problem? He asked why there was no wrestling on the front page, and I told him.

    Oh snap...

    really ghost? the OP is just asking Jon to cover a sport that Jon has claimed is an important part of the U of I. he's also pointing out that the front page hasn't changed much in over a week, not that b-ball is less important than wrestling.

    oh snap...
