In this episode of the 3 Up, 3 Down podcast, hosts Troy Banning and Ross Thede talk plenty of Iowa and Iowa State athletics. In segment one, Iowa State's wrestling program is the subject, as the hiring of the new staff is dissected. Segment No. 2 is all about Iowa football and its perceived weak schedule. What can the Hawkeyes do to bolster their national profile? Is keeping Iowa State on the schedule a good move? And in segment three, Michael McBride's upcoming UFC fight is discussed, as are the Times Republican basketball players of the year.
