itunes-insert-adThe Grapple on the Gridiron is set to have some great fall weather in Iowa on November 14. We've talked with Tom Brands, now we'll get the other perspective from Oklahoma State head coach John Smith on Episode 218 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast.

Coach Smith, who's seen and done just about everything there is to do in wrestling, jumped at the chance to wrestle Iowa in an outdoor dual at Kinnick Stadium. Smith breaks down the process from his side of things and we get his take on how he's preparing the Cowboy wrestling program for this historic dual.

Coach Smith also goes over some of the lineup questions concerning the recent open results at 133 and 157 pounds and whether or not he'll pull the trigger and send Kaid Brock and Joe Smith into the lineup.

With Joe, a freshman and the coach's son, competing and potentially being in a position to be the best guy at the weight, coach Smith talks about what it's finally like to be coaching his own son in the Cowboy wrestling room.

We'll also revisit the discussion on Smith's side of the relationship with Tom Brands and also find out how good Alex Dieringer is compared to some of the great all-time Cowboys.
