I'm Mike Riordan, staff writer for Intermat and Bloody Elbow, SB Nation's combat sports specialists. I'm going to be running a good bit of coverage on the NCAA wrestling tournament on Bloody Elbow and I'm going to give you a link to the story stream here.
I invite and encourage the Hawkeye faithful to come and join the discussion, hell, I wouldn't mind if you come and take it over, like you undoubtedly will in Des Moines, with your calls for stalling and screams of twoooooooooo when the criteria for a takedown is miles away from being established.
I'm making this fanpost because I believe Iowa fans care about the sport, and because I, like the rest of wrestling, need Iowa fans because you will boost the number of page views.
The coverage so far includes a podcast I made with T.R. Foley, another article about wrestlers converting to MMA, and tomorrow it should include another podcast I'm making with Luke Thomas, along with a full blown preview.
Enjoy it now, because I don't want to be around any of you on Saturday after, you know, the whole team score thing.
