In addition, Askren also gets Kolat’s thoughts on the Iowa State controversy as well as what is different about this generation’s wrestlers vs previous generations. Then Askren talks to NJRTC Head Coach Reece Humphrey about the turnaround at Princeton and Rutgers as well as how the NJRTC is able to flourish.
