Where are the results from the first day on wrestling in the Big Ten Wrestling Championship.
It would be nice to not have to go to a different site to see the results as they happen or at least at the end of the day. Your coverage is poor at best there is none.

Thanks Mike Bullerman

I do not know if this is a right place to post, my and I am positive every other wrestling fan in the country, how apsolutely aughful your announcers are. This is an embarasement for the sport and so sad for the athletes and their fans. BIG TEN should be embarrased.

Thank you Big Ten Network for showing the finals live on Sunday, March 10, 2013. For wrestling fans, it was a treat to see the most under appreciated sport take a daytime slot. Also, it was a first-class production from start to finish. Thanks again. Now on to the NCAA Tournament.
