Minnesota fundraiser dual this Sunday
Now's here's a winning idea: Buy a ticket to attend a college wrestling event, and know that 100% of your money will go directly to fund scholarships for wrestlers ... and help ensure the long-range success of the host program.
The University of Missouri and Oregon State have hosted events like this with great success. Now the University of Minnesota is hosting a scholarship fundraiser of its own, as the Golden Gophers welcome Big Ten rival Purdue to the Sports Pavilion on Sunday, January 31 at 2 p.m. Central. The dual meet will be broadcast on a tape delay on the Big Ten Network at 10:00 p.m. Central on Sunday.
At this dual meet -- dubbed the Gopher Wrestling Endowment Meet -- all ticket proceeds will go directly to the Minnesota Wrestling Scholarship fund.

Re: Minnesota fundraiser dual this Sunday
You can thank the AD a whole lot more than JR for that one. One responsibility of an AD is to produce a little cash for the university after there is enough revenue to meet the athletic budget. Allowing JR to boost the wrestling endowment with this revenue and purely a gift from the AD. Minny must have a good year at the football and bball gates to not have the cash diverted to the athletics treasury and supporting other non-revenue sports.
