U.S. Congressman Jordan, OSU coach John Smith scheduled to go ‘On the Mat’



This week's edition of "On the Mat" will feature United States Congressman Jim Jordan and Oklahoma State head coach John Smith.

Jordan is a member of the Republican Party who serves as a U.S. Representative from the Fourth Congressional District of Ohio. He defeated Democrat Rick Siferd in the 2006 congressional elections to replace retiring representative Mike Oxley.

As a wrestler, Jordan competed for the University of Wisconsin and was an NCAA champion in 1985 & '86. His career college record was 156-28-1. A 1982 graduate of Graham High School in Ohio, Jordan won four individual state titles and compiled a high school record of 150-1.

Smith, who is the head wrestling coach at Oklahoma State University, recently led his team to a fifth place finish at the 2007 NCAA tournament. The Cowboys had won four consecutive NCAA championships prior their recent finish.

The winner of six consecutive World and Olympic championships in a row from 1987-1992, Smith is considered by many to be the greatest American wrestler of all time.

"On the Mat" is a weekly wrestling radio program that airs every Wednesday night. This week's broadcast can be heard live from 5-6 p.m. Central Standard Time. The Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum in Waterloo, Iowa, hosts the show.

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