A Season on the Mat
by Nolan Zavoral
Chronicles the dramatic 1996-97 season of the Iowa Hawkeyes, in which Gable led his team – far from his most talented – to the national title. Go behind the scenes, into the stifling heat of the Iowa wrestling room where young men sacrifice everything they have just to be part of the Hawkeye program. Gable dealt with speculation this would be the last season he would coach the Hawkeyes and a midseason hip replacement operation while aiming toward a NCAA championship in Cedar Falls, right next to Waterloo, where he had spent his youth.
