    Default A tree of greatness

    Is wrestling greatness rooted in Stillwater, Iowa City, Ames, Norman - or could it be Cedar Falls?

    This week's blog.

    Thanks for yet another excellent installment, Jim.

    Your latest blog -- and the one from Jason Bryant -- inspired me to weigh in:

    The SanFran Bay Area has been really good but declined recently

    ideamark, that blog was amazing. Was it by the same author who made this thread?

    A sharp-eyed reader emailed me a correction and an addition. Dave McCuskey coached at least TEN members of the Hall of Fame, one of whom was LeRoy Alitz , the longtime coach at the US Military Academy. Among his wrestlers at Army - the Cadets' only NCAA champion, Mike Natvig, and General Norman Schwarzkopf. My apologies for the inaccuracies.

    BTW - I have been informed by Athletic Director, Troy Dannen, that the 1950 Iowa State Teachers College champions will be inducted this fall into the UNI athletic hall of fame as a team.
