Dueling Donors: Iowans Giving Big For New Facilities

Dueling Donors: Iowans Giving Big For New Facilities
The top NCAA Division I programs are in the midst of a facilities arms race, as teams with deep-pocketed donors are competing to build bigger and better wrestling rooms and amenities. 

The new facilities don't come cheap, and fundraising efforts are often part of multi-million-dollar, campus-wide campaigns. Flo's own Nomad recently recapped the escalating facility battles being waged across the collegiate landscape.

It appears that Iowa Hawkeyes fans did not want to be left out of the fun. Whether directly encouraged by Nomad's intrepid reporting or perhaps by rival Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan's tweet, Iowa booster Bob Nicolls announced that he was writing a $1 million check to the Hawkeyes program, as proudly relayed by Iowa assistant coach Ryan Morningstar in a tweet of his own. 

Nicolls' call to action to his fellow Iowa supporters is being answered, as the Hawkeye Wrestling Club is also trumpeting the success of its ongoing pledge drive. 

No details or building plans on the new Hawkeye wrestling facilities are available, making Nicolls' contributions to kickstart the project all the more impressive. 
We will be sure to keep everyone up to date when conceptual drawings are released.
