Greenlee and Brown to go ‘On the Mat’ this week

Former University of Northern Iowa NCAA runner-up Joel Greenlee and wrestling enthusiast Jim Brown will be radio show guests this week.

“On the Mat” is a presentation of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum and can be heard live on the Internet at or locally in Northeast Iowa each Wednesday from 5:00 – 6:00 PM Central time on AM 1650, The Fan. Feel free to e-mail with any questions or comments about the show.

Ohio University head wrestling coach Joel Greenlee will be inducted into the UNI Athletics Hall of Fame this Saturday, September 18. A native of Waverly, Iowa, Greenlee was a two-time All-American at heavyweight, placing 2nd at the NCAA tournament in 1989 and compiled a collegiate record of 127-16-4. He is beginning his 14th season leading the Ohio Bobcat wrestling program.

Jim Brown is one of the most passionate wrestling fans you’ll find. He writes a wrestling blog called “The View from Section GG” and last year started a successful program called “Tickets for Kids” which has provided hundreds of opportunities for young kids to attend college wrestling events.
