We spoke with Coach Jackson Wednesday morning, the day before the opening of the 2010 NCAA Div. I Wrestling Championships, which takes place Thursday, March 18, to Saturday, March 20, at the Qwest Center Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska. He discussed the prospects for his team to win a national title at this event, as well as what he expects from Iowa State's top seeds, Jake Varner at 197 pounds and David Zabriskie at heavyweight. We also discussed what he expects from the rest of his team, and how they might fare at this tournament. And he explained why he, along with many others, views the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships as "the best wrestling tournament in the world."
We also spoke with Melvina Lathan, the chairwoman of the New York State Athletic Commission, Tuesday afternoon at Madison Square Garden at the news conference for the May 15 Amir Khan-Paulie Malignaggi fight. Our subject was not boxing, but the likelihood of New York State finally legalizing and sanctioning mixed martial arts after 13 years of an unjust law banning it. She confirmed for us that measures legalizing and sanctioning mixed martial arts are included in the proposed 2010-2011 budget, and discussed the timetable for when we may actually have sanctioned mixed martial arts events in New York after that budget is eventually adopted by the State Legislature.
