University of Northern Iowa Panthers Set to Stream Wrestle offs on TDR
Originally TDR was set to broadcast a regular room show at UNI this Saturday. Opportunity smiled and we now have the opportunity to present a live video stream of the UNI Wrestle-offs from the West Gym in Cedar Falls, Iowa. TDR starts at 9:06 AM CST for an hour pre-match show and then will continue through the wrestle offs. You can listen and watch by clicking on the live link on Takedownradio.com. That will take you to our partners at Livesportsvideo.com. We look forward to this first of the season event.
The University of Northern Iowa wrestling team will take to the mat for the first time in the 2009-10 season, hosting its annual inter-squad scrimmage. The wrestle-offs will begin Saturday,
