BTN Wrestling Report - Jan. 31, 2012

Following back-to-back losses to Ohio State and Penn State, the Iowa wrestling team rebounded with a 19-17 victory over Minnesota this past weekend. The win also helped Iowa’s 125-pound wrestler Matt McDonough nab Big Ten Wrestler of the Week honors. Kara Lentz recaps all of the action, and BTN analysts Tim Johnson and Jim Gibbons look ahead to the weekend’s upcoming matches between Michigan-Ohio State and Nebraska-Minnesota. Both events can be seen on BTN and BTN2Go.

I am compelled to provide feedback on the Big Ten Network’s airing of wrestling this season. I really enjoy watching the meets and listening to the analysis of Tim Johnson and Jim Gibbons. Especially that of Jim. Having wrestled in HS and college intramurals and now having boys in the sport, I’ve been around it to a fair degree. Jim provides a knowledgable and insightful coverage of each match that I am learning from and he does it in such a way that even those unfamiliar to the sport will become familiar. This is such a boon to the wrestling, I wish Tim and Jim could commentate on more of the meets as I am really appreciative of them.
