Episode 10 was a lot of fun to record. Here are some of the things we couldn't grab on the spot or wished to expand on. 

- Michigan State in the 2013-2014 season went 1-7 in the Big Ten dual season before finishing 12th at the tournament. The dual scores were: 30-7, 41-0, 35-3, 26-6, 29-6, 42-3, and 39-6 before they beat Indiana 18-16. So Maryland will probably fare better than that. 

- Minnesota defeated Iowa last season 19-15. If Gilman beats Brancale by decision the score would have been 18-13 for Iowa. That 9 point swing was the dual, but you can say a bunch of "what if's". Sam Brancale in front of a sold out crowd at Carver Hawkeye went in there and pinned the #3 ranked guy in the country. That's an awesome moment. 

- Nick Simmons was 211-0 in high school in Williamston, Michigan. He had 178 pins in high school. According to the MHSAA rule book he is tied for the consecutive pins record with Jon Reader with 54 listing Simmons' junior year so maybe they didn't carry over multiple seasons (or I am an idiot). 

- The special wrestle-off at Big Ten's for 9th place at 285 included Adam Coon (Michigan) defeating Chris Lopez (Illinois) and Collin Jensen (Nebraska). The match we were trying to recall was indeed Jensen vs Alex White (Purdue) in which Jensen won 3-1. It was awful. 

- Dalton Henderson (VMI) won the freshman/sophomore division at the Hokie Open and not the Wolfpack Open. I was trying to speak and read at the same time which is way too much for me. My initial research of the Hokie Open was right, but then saw Wolfpack out of the corner of my eye. Juan Adams at 285 took 6th and Shabaka Johns at 165 took 5th (losing his only match to formerly ranked Austin Trott (Gardner-Webb). 

- Max Huntley (Michigan) injury defaulted against Sonny Yohn (Minnesota) on January 27th, 2012. I could not find video, but I did easily find video of the Rashad Evans headkick KO of Sean Salmon!
