Badgers begin competition
The season is finally here-unofficially that is. This weekend the freshman will be going on their own to the Stevens Point Open. At this time it is undecided if all the freshman will redshirt, so they will compete at UWSP unattached. By NCAA rules, University coaches can attend and watch the competition but are not allowed to coach individuals that are redshirting at the time of the event. We will report back on the results next week and wisconsinwrestlingnetwork.com is planning on posting video of some of the matches.
Nazar and Connor will be competing in the Bill Farrell/NYAC International Tournament in New York City. Coach Ruschell will also be at the event and will helping the guys, along with the Titan Mercury Wrestling Club Coaches. The competition will take place on Saturday. The matches will be webcast on flowrestling.com but you will need to have the premium package to watch. Updates will be posted on the Wisconsin Wrestling Network Facebook page throughout the day.
WWCA Convention and recruiting
Coach Brandvold, Coach Hull and RTC athlete Camden Eppert will be heading up to the Wisconsin Wrestling Coaches Association Convention on Friday. Coach Hull and Camden will go from there to the Stevens Point Open. Coach Brandvold will leave from there to the JJ Classic in MN to do some final recruiting before the NCAA required “Dead Period” next week. Official signing begins on Wednesday. We are not allowed to comment on any prospective student athlete until after the individual has signed and been cleared through the Athletic Department. Based on past years, it will be early to mid-December before we clear everyone to make an official announcement of the recruiting class through the Sports Information Department.
Watch the Badgers this Season
The Badger – Iowa match will be broadcast live on January 15 on the Big Ten network. The rest of our Big Ten matches plus the UW-Whitewater match on November 12 (more on that match in next week’s TwB) will be broadcast online and can be purchased through the Big Ten Plus package at the link below. The athletic department is contractually limited and can’t broadcast other matches, which included even the team Red-White dual, online. You can purchase only the Badger matches or can get all the Big Ten wrestling matches.
Wisconsin Wrestling Apparel
The Badger Wrestling Club will have Wisconsin Wrestling Apparel available through the Wisconsinwrestlingnetwork.com website starting on Friday. There will be crew and hooded sweatshirts, polo shirt along with short sleeve and ¾ sleeve T-shirts. There is a limited supply of sizes in stock for all the shirts so don’t wait.
Throwback Thursday at WWN
Periodically on Thursdays on the wisconsinwrestlingnetwork.com website there will be written or video interviews with individuals that have impacted the sport of wrestling on and/or off the mat. Check out the first interview this Thursday with Badger NCAA Champion and current Director of Las Vegas Events, Pat Christenson. Very interesting read for me-I do get to see these in advance!
