15,800 tickets sold so far. 16,000 would be a sellout for the annual State of Iowa championship.

This is great for the sport. I am surprised that this has never sold out before.

That was a shock. Makes me wonder if Reader was less than 100%

I picked M* to win, so I don't think i was too shocking.  Remember his match with Paulson?

I think it was like 15,955 and it was standing room only.  It was like trying to get tickets to a Michigan vs Ohio State football game.  Even the scalpers were like..."sorry we don't have any".

ny - I just got to see the match this weekend. DOn't know if anything was wrong with Reader but his face was flush and in the down position he was putting out sweat like there's no tomorrow. M* did a great job of riding him but I'd like to see a rematch of that one.

I would love to see a rematch of that one too.  M* just seems to capitalize in this dual meet.

Never underestimate the power that flows through Carver...I have watched some amazing upsets there.
