With the 2015-16 season starting, Head Assistant Coach Brandon Eggum brings everyone back to the Coach’s Corner for another year of analysis and insights straight from the coaches.
In the first installment of this year’s Coach’s Corner series, Eggum reflects on the performance of Minnesota wrestlers at last weekend’s Warren Williamson/Daktronics Open, an event at which five Gophers reached the finals and three brought home titles — Tommy Thorn (141), Brett Pfarr (197) and Michael Kroells (285).
Eggum also looks ahead to the team’s regular season opener this Saturday, the Gopher Duals, and what lineup fans should expect to see from Minnesota at the event. The Gophers will welcome Virginia, South Dakota State and Grand Canyon to Williams Arena beginning at 3 p.m. for an evening of wrestling at the Barn.
Coach’s Corner is a weekly series that debuts every Wednesday. Fans can find the latest episodes on GopherSports.com and on the 2015-16 Gopher Wrestling playlist on YouTube.
