Where was Dan Gable on the broadcasts?

Recommended Posts

Have only seen a few matches online and after the tournament was over last night.

 

Did not hear any of the announcing include Dan Gable.

 

He's one of the most knowledgeable and understandable announcers of wrestling around. Pretty much the Godfather of College wrestling. Was he on any of the ESPN broadcasts?

 

If not, why not?

He's not as relevant as he used to be. He doesn't coach anymore, his wrestling glory days ended over 40 years ago, and he hasn't coached in about 20. Plus, Iowa isn't a juggernaut anymore, which reduces the attraction of interviewing a Hawkeye great (technically a CYCLONE great :D ).

He was there speaking for a little bit. I heard him take a swing at the fun rubric Penn State preaches for what that's worth lol

 

What was said?  Hard to argue with the results or the focus on being positive,  but the repeated fun/god answers certainly stood out.
