Blue - I had a conversation today with a Chicago resident about this exact topic. He was a classmate of Tom and Terry Brands at Iowa and overheard (eavesdropped?) a conversation between my favorite bartender and me about the tournament. He didn't even know that Iowa had won!
I told him that it is probable that Northwestern will have a strong team next year and that he ought to get out and see them and that Iowa City is close enough that he could get to meets. I also gave him the urls of The Wrestling Talk and HawkeyeNation.
Anyway, I understand what you're saying about the Tribune and the Sun-Times devoting so much time to the Cubs, Bears, Bulls and Blackhawks and comparing that to us having Andy Hamilton and J R Ogden. Okay - we have an advantage. But, why accept that?
I happen to "know" someone who writes a great blog about wrestling and the martial arts from the female viewpoint. That's exactly the kind of thing we all need to be doing. If wrestling - especially the college version - is going to gain in popularity, we don't have the luxury of waiting for someone else to do it for us.
