The Grapple on the Gridiron is coming to Kinnick Stadium on November 14 in Iowa City. On Episode 217 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Iowa coach Tom Brands talks about how excited he is for this dual and what his team has to do to prepare.
Brands, fresh off Iowa's media day last Thursday, also talks about the goals for this team this season and the keys to replacing a guy like Bobby Telford at heavyweight and what it will take for Nathan Burak to reach the top of the podium.
Brands will also explain what the mentality is for past Hawkeyes Tony Ramos and Brent Metcalf to get ready to try to make the 2016 Olympic team.
Brands also discusses his long relationship with Oklahoma State head coach John Smith and how the two have been able to co-exist, even when playing basketball. Yes, basketball.
