A rundown of the last weekend of activity highlights Episode 14 of the #PackMentality Pop-Ins podcast as host Brian Reinhardt is visited by head wrestling coach Pat Popolizio, heavyweight Michael Boykin and 197-pounder Michael Macchiavello.
Boykin was the hero on Friday night as the Pack beat No. 8 Virginia Tech 19-15 to claim the ACC regular season championship, ending the Hokies three-year run at the top of the dual meet season.
That triumph was met by a home loss in front of nearly 4,000 fans at Reynolds Coliseum, but even in losing eight of 10 bouts, Macchiavello was the big winner, picking off All-American and top-ranked (by some rankings services) Kollin Moore at 197 pounds. Pack fans should also listen closely for a special promo code for listeners of the show to save $5 on the Mat Talk Online Division I Preview Guide.
