University of Minnesota Coaches Corner – February 4, 2016

In this week’s episode of Coach’s Corner, Head Assistant Coach Brandon Eggum wraps up last weekend’s loss at Iowa and offers a preview of the lineup and the competition set for this weekend when the Gophers travel to Northwestern and Wisconsin.

Minnesota GophersBrett Pfarr and Tommy Thorn provided bright spots in a tough loss to the rival Hawkeyes last Friday. Pfarr knocked off then-No. 3 Nathan Burak to pick up his team-best eighth-ranked win of the season. The win was also Pfarr’s third over a top-five opponent this season.

Looking ahead to this weekend, Eggum discusses who he expects the Gophers to put on the mat at 125, 133 and 165 pounds, as well as sharing his thoughts on the opponents Minnesota will see during their weekend road trip.
