Iowa adds women's wrestling

First power 5 school to do so.  Should ignite others to follow suit.

I have not heard that term before - Power 5 school.  What does that mean?

One of the Power 5 conferences - the SEC, ACC, PAC 12, and the two Bigs (10 and 12) who either change their number or can't count.

The NCAA also allows the "Power 5" a bit more leeway to self rule. The NCAA lets the SEC, ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and Big 12 create their own rules — other conferences can adopt them, too, if they want — in certain areas to benefit college athletes.  Certain rules such as transfer eligibility rules, enforcement and scholarships limits, remain governed by both the Power 5 and the rest of Division I.
