Wrestling may be the toughest sport in the world. One-on-one raw intensity, unmatched by any team sport, makes freestyle wrestling competition not just one of the oldest, but also one of the toughest athletic events known to man. Strength, speed and smarts all help make a good wrestler. Good news for Dinos' fans: the University of Calgary has plenty of good wrestlers, both male and female.

The thought inside the head of every member of the Dinos: Redemption.

In a famed '80s movie, the secret of Michael J. Fox's success was to work hard and sleep with his aunt, but for the Dinos soccer teams, this weekend's playoffs require a different formula in order to succeed.

"More than any time in the past 17 years, we are ready," said men's Head Coach Andy Gibbs. "But if we don't get our attitude right from the first minute of the first game we won't succeed."

In their last regular season game, the Calgary Dinos won away from home, beating the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds in a muddy game that ended 33-13.

"I think we played a very solid game on both sides of the field," said Head Coach Tony Fasano.

"The defensive team is coming together and everybody did what they wanted to do. We're playing within our limits and we know what they are and we're starting to feel good about ourselves," said Assistant Coach Jerry Friesen.

There is a certain challenge that comes with beginning a new season. For Dinos men's and women's volleyball, the challenge was greater than merely the pressure of performing for points in the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union--it was the challenge of playing away from the safety of their own gymnasium.

In their home opener for the 2000/2001 season, the University of Calgary men's basketball team fell to the Brandon University Bobcats 90-84 and 90-88. Both games were extremely close and the Dinos made a jubilant effort to show off their new team and new coach, Dan Vanhooren. However the Bobcats, last year's Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union finalists, proved to be too much for the hosts. Both teams played good games with Brandon coming out on top each time.

It's funny; at first glance, Daniel Igali doesn't look very intimidating at all. Until one gets a closer look, his five-foot-eight frame doesn't seem very imposing, certainly not the image most athletes of his calibre portray. Even his ears don't surrender the fact that the man is a wrestler.
