That’s pretty awesome! Great win on the road.
Great hire by Yow as well. This one looked great from the beginning.02/22/2016 at 11:11 PM #100011WufpackerParticipant
Sure wish they could get a do-over vs VT.02/22/2016 at 11:26 PM #100014

I truly don’t understand what’s going on when I watch the highlights. But I’m so happy to updated and know about Pack wins. So is this the end of the season? Or is there a tourney or something?

Winning at Iowa in wrestling is like winning at UCLA in basketball between ’65-’75. College wrestling was a lot of fun to watch when I was at State. We were ACC contenders, but never national powers. This team clearly has a shot at a NATTY this year.02/23/2016 at 9:31 AM #100022FergusWolfParticipant
Wow, I thought we were hard on our teams. I read the comments in the Iowa open thread.
So, they were #2 in the country and undefeated, and lost a close match to the #4 team in the country (it was closer than the final score indicated because of the default in GWiz’s match), and they are calling for their coaches head.
Different world, I guess.02/23/2016 at 10:19 AM #100023WufpackerParticipant
According to tweet sent out from wrestling team’s twitter feed last night, Pack is the first to ever defeat both Iowa and Okie State on the road in the same season. Makes sense as most don’t come away from either place with a W, let alone both.
Nicely done.02/23/2016 at 10:54 AM #100025redisgoodParticipant
Wow! Can these guys play basketball?02/23/2016 at 1:23 PM #100037gso packbackerParticipant
Thoroughly enjoyed “watching” the match last night via twitter updates since I wasn’t able to get the audio feed. A sweet ending regardless, but even more after the VT match. ACC and NCAA Tourneys coming up and hopefully this gives us a little extra confidence boost.02/23/2016 at 2:14 PM #100038
Wow, I thought we were hard on our teams
Coach Brands kept mentioning the “small” crowd, which was a little over 6,000 🙂 That crowd started leaving early.
All the pre-match articles and posts I read gave me the impression that Iowa thought they should be wrestling for the championship, and really didn’t give State much credit.
(it was closer than the final score indicated because of the default in GWiz’s match)
Gwiz was on a mission again, and he was up 10-1 at the time of the default. I think he would have scored at least a tech fall, and possibly pinned the guy.02/23/2016 at 3:35 PM #100040FergusWolfParticipant
^ Oh, I think it was a forgone conclusion that we were going to win as soon as GWiz got on the mat, but chances are the margin would have been smaller.02/23/2016 at 6:58 PM #100044
State is now ranked #2. Outstanding! VT is #3, and Iowa drops to #4.02/23/2016 at 7:18 PM #100046choppack1Participant
Wow!! I don’t believe in upsets in wrestling and track and field/ cross country. Great job by the team great hire by Yow. I don’t have a problem with paying a guy like this something equivalent to his quality.02/23/2016 at 7:31 PM #100047mak4dpakParticipant
A big win to start the week, now on to the BB game, may we dismantle the holes, in the PNC.02/25/2016 at 8:10 PM #100175
This is worth a share. 15,000 watching an online wrestling match is pretty impressive. I wish video of the Iowa match had been available via GoPack.

Sacco V is a selfless man that got this section rollin’ from the very start.
Thank you. Don’t let up.02/25/2016 at 10:02 PM #100179gso packbackerParticipant
Excellent point. Really appreciate the work Sacco put into the match previews. Really helped me out and was a great way of stay more “involved” in an incredible year for the team.
GoPack access has a nice video of Pop talking to the team at Iowa that I highly recommend. Gives you a good idea of his style and the kind of relationship he has with his team.02/27/2016 at 6:36 PM #100347McCallumParticipant
Methinks I might drive up from Georgia to watch a match.
Nice to see some winners in a school of losers.

The duals are all done. The ACC tourney is in Charlottesville, VA next Sunday, March 5. Then the NCAA tourney is Mar. 17-19.
