You have $30 and 10 of Iowa's best ever wrestlers to choose - Go.

(BUMP to the front page. I was planning something similar, but I don't think my version would have ended up much different from Rambler's, so we'll just roll with it... I did add a graphic, tho. -- Ross)

Basketball is nice, but let's do the same idea with wrestling.

EDIT: Someone in the original basketball thread had the same idea five days ago, but I didn't bother to read the thread before posting this in my wrestling excitement, so my apologies for ripping you off, sir!

I do not have fancy graphics, but wrestling isn't a fancy sport anyway.

Quick note: I didn't include Steve Mocco because he didn't finish his career at Iowa.

The Rules: 1) You must spend no more than $30 in picking your ten wrestlers. 2) You may slide wrestlers up one weight class or down one weight class, but no more than one. 3) You may not pick Dan Gable, who would cost $30 anyway, no matter how understandably tempting it is to do so.
