On Episode 9 of the World Wrestling Resource Podcast, we talk with Dubuque head coach Jon McGovern about the NWCA Multi-Divisional National Duals. The event brings the best teams in the country from Division II, Division III, NAIA, NJCAA and the WCWA in a dual-meet advancement format. Coach McGovern talks a little about his team's performance, but explains how the event is helpful and impactful for all the teams competing, not just for championship preparation, but for different looks due to the large disparity in geography when it comes to the landscape of Division III wrestling.
Our second segment features Iowa associate head coach Terry Brands and while the Hawkeyes are coming off a sound 30-7 win over Oklahoma State, we'll bounce topics off coach Brands like the mindset that goes into picking a starter when you have a couple of talented wrestlers in a weight class, when or when not to redshirt a wrestler, the performance of Hawkeye Mike Kelly and a look towards the Freestyle World Cup coming up in April in Los Angeles as United World Wrestling recently released the pairings.
