Episode 3 of the Guillotine Grapevine heads up to Halenbeck Hall in St. Cloud as we visit with St. Cloud State head wrestling coach Steve Costanzo.
Costanzo guided the Huskies to the school’s first national championship last season at the NCAA Division II Wrestling Championships. Prior to coming to St. Cloud State, Costanzo guided Dana College to the NAIA championship.
Costanzo finds familiar faces in the way as he looks to earn back-to-back titles. They include his college coach, Mike Denney at Maryville and Nebraska-Kearney head coach Marc Bauer, also a Nebraska-Omaha alum. Continue reading
Episode 2 of the Guillotine Grapevine heads to the Bierman Athletic Building on the campus of the University of Minnesota as we talk with Minnesota head wrestling coach J Robinson and assistant coach Brandon Eggum.
Robinson briefly talks about his contract extension that will keep him coaching the Gophers at least through the 2019 season. There’s also a short debate on who’s mustache actually rules Minnesota — Robinson’s or the one worn by two-time World medalist Andy Bisek. Continue reading
The first official episode of the Guillotine Grapevine takes us to two local campuses in the Twin Cities as we visit Augsburg College to meet with three-time Greco-Roman World Team member Jordan Holm to get a little bit of insight into the Minnesota Training Center and the performances of Storm athletes at the 2015 World Championships in Las Vegas.
Holm breaks down his own performance and identifies what he has to do to put himself in a position to make the Olympic Team in 2016 and win a medal. He also breaks down the performances of Andy Bisek and Bebeto Yewah, both Storm wrestlers who participated in the World Championships.
We then move across the river to the University of Minnesota and talk with four-time All-American Dylan Ness, who will be continuing his career on the senior level in Greco-Roman with the Storm. Ness breaks down what he had to do to separate himself from the comparisons to his older brother Jayson and why he’s picking Greco-Roman over freestyle.
Welcome to the introductory episode of The Guillotine Grapevine, The Podcast for the Land of 10,000 Wrestlers.
