Minneapolis was awarded the 2020 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships on Tuesday. Episode 28 of The Guillotine Grapevine will get an immediate Minnesota-themed reaction about the championships coming to U.S. Bank Stadium in March of 2020.
We’ll see what went into the bid process with Senior Associate Athletic Director at the University of Minnesota Tom McGinnis, the reaction from head wrestling coach Brandon Eggum, the “what to do’s” with Gopher alum and Minneapolis resident Mack Reiter and we’ll get a fan perspective from longtime wrestling supporter Mike Busch of Mike Busch State Farm in Rochester.
Episode 24 of The Guillotine Grapevine talks with Gopher alums Mack Reiter and Jayson Ness as they look back on the 2007 Minnesota wrestling team that captured the NCAA Division I Championship.
It was bittersweet for Reiter, who failed to place that season. Ness finished fifth as a freshman. Both outlined what made that team of various personalities a cohesive unit. Wrestlers from all over the country populated the lineup with one goal in mind.
We’ll then wrap up with some recent high school milestones!
