    Default No UNI Open?

    I tried to post this question over at "the other site," but I've never been able to post on there, so I'll try my luck here.

    After looking at UNI's schedule this year I noticed that there is no UNI open scheduled for this year. Does anyone know (a) if that is correct and (b) why no open?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure I'd be overly surprised, but not for the reason you might think. Timing is absolutely awful for the UNI Open this year. Usually, the UNI Open is held the day after the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational. This year, of course, some other wrestling event seems to be going on in the state of Iowa on the same day, I can't remember what it is, but for some reason I seem to be landing at Des Moines International Airport a couple of minutes before 10:00 that morning...can somebody please remind me?

    Besides the Iowa Iowa State dual could the cost of running that tournament have anything to do with it? All the universities in Iowa are trying to save money and especially UNI whos athletic department is mostly funded by the state.

    Not at all...Scott Casber is picking me up and taking me to Ames, and providing the lodging accomodations. The offer is greatly appreciated, however!
