On Thursday afternoon Iowa State Wrestling tweeted out its list of planned opponents for the upcoming season. While a few details are missing (exact dates and locations), it’s enough to know the competition will be leveled up compared to last season. Iowa State Wrestling was 4th in the nation in average attendance last season despite a lackluster home schedule. There will without a doubt be better meets in Hilton Coliseum this year, so scoop up those season tickets when they become available. If 1) the home schedule plays out how I think it will and 2) the quality of wrestling continues to improve how I think it will, it would be no surprise to see Iowa State break into the top 3 in the nation in attendance — right where it should be.
