This week's edition of "On the Mat" will feature Mark Manning and Jim Makovsky.

"On the Mat" is a weekly wrestling radio program that airs every Wednesday night. This week's broadcast can be heard live from 6-7 p.m. Central Standard Time. The Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum in Waterloo, Iowa, hosts the show.

Manning is the current head wrestling coach at the University of Nebraska. This past weekend, the unseeded Cornhuskers placed second at the NWCA National Duals. It was only the second time in the history of the event that an unseeded team reached the finals of this event.

Prior to his tenure at Nebraska, Manning was the head coach at Northern Iowa from 1997 to 2000.

Makovsky is in his 15th season as the head wrestling coach at Minnesota State University. His Maverick squad won the Division II portion of the NWCA National Duals with a dramatic win over Nebraska-Omaha in the finals.

"On the Mat" can be heard live on the Internet at or locally in Northeast Iowa on 1650, The Fan. Feel free to e-mail with questions or comments about the show.
