Rutgers head coach Scott Goodale doesn't think "there's a whole heck of a lot of respect" for his Scarlet Knights program from the Iowa wrestlers and coaches ahead of their dual meet on Friday at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway, NJ.
In particular, Goodale took issue with, "their 165-pounder comparing Blair Academy's gym to our gym." But perhaps his best quote was directed at Hawkeyes coach Tom Brands:
We’re doing nice things, according to him. That’s like telling me my sister’s cute, I don’t wanna hear that.
Below is the full video from Rutgers, featuring his thoughts on his roster, the lack of respect, and the dual in general.
On Wednesday, news broke that Alex Marinelli would make his varsity debut in an Iowa singlet. The #3 overall recruit from the class of 2016, he basically brushed off the notion that the Rutgers crowd could intimidate him. Check out the full comments from Marinelli and Brands below.
