IOWA CITY– For the second year in a row, the Hawkeye wrestling team won the Big Ten tournament championship at University Park, Pennsylvania.
One hundred and forty-one points, two champions and nine will go to the NCAA championships in two weeks.
I’ll look at the good, the bad and the ugly of Iowa’s 33rd Big Ten title.
The good or great would have to be Brent Metcalf. Three pins, including one in the championship match, a major decision, being voted the Outstanding Wrestler for the second straight year, 33-0 for the year, 65 straight victories… and he’s only a junior.
