Goodale Thinks Iowa Doesn't Respect Rutgers

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.

WATCH LIVE HERE FRIDAY AT 8 PM EST

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.

Tune in to see how high the emotions runs this Friday at 8 PM Eastern time.

Which College "Won" Ironman?

132lbs Third place: Jordan Decatur, CVCA vs Dylan D'Emilio, Genoa

One of my favorite things to do after big tournaments like the Walsh Ironman is to look at results through the lens of college recruiting. While a number of Ironman placers have yet to make their college decision, many have committed already and a good deal have signed their National Letters of Intent.
