It was Mediapolis and Debbie Coates that ended Manilla's dreams of a state championship for a second straight year last season, winning in a quarter-final round contest.

"No team — other than three from the Big Eight — has ever won back to-back titles'," Kurdelmeier recounted before leaving for the 46th annual collegiate championships that run through Saturday in Tucson, Ariz. "In fact, other than Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Iowa State, no team has ever won more than one championship. So there is a challenge." Iowa went into the three-day meet Thursday as shaky favorite. "I don't like it, but there's no way that we can avoid that favorite tag," said Kurdelmeier, whose team won by 25 points a year ago in what was"considered a mild surprise. The 1976 Iowa team was the one that was suppose to bring Iowa its first national championship. The Hawkeyes, many observers say, arrived a year earlier. "Last year we got about every break possible by winning all the close decisions and it paid off in points," recalled Kurdelmeier. "To"win a national title you've got to be lucky and that holds for us this time around too." Cross-state rival Iowa State, Big Eight Conference powers . Oklahoma — the only team to defeat Iowa in a dual meet — Lehigh, Cal Poly, Oregon State, Penn State and Big Ten runnerup Minnesota are expected to be Iowa's chief challengers. Kurdelmeier said the key to Iowa's chances will be in the seedings, avoidance of any major upsets plus strong showings by what he calls his "M squad" — Keith Mourlam, Mike McDonough and Mike McGivern. Iowa probably will have to land two wrestlers in the finals to grab the team championship. The Hawkeyes along with Iowa State and Oklahoma qualified their entire 10-man teams. Defending national champion Chuck Yagja (150) and two-time Big Ten champion Chris Campbell (177) are, .expected to be top seeded. •, J* Is Your Business Property Underinsured? • Fred J.
