On this episode of the RUDIS Wrestling Podcast, Matt Dernlan talks with NCAA Champion and 3x All American Max Askren about the factors behind Iowa’s rise to #1 in the NCAA team race for 2020. The two focus on the importance of the culture that has been established at Iowa that has allowed them to remain a top contender for the last several years and discuss what factors have fallen into place for this season making the team race Iowa’s to lose. Along with focusing on the Hawkeyes’ culture specifically they also discuss whether or not Jaydin Eierman will be pulled out of redshirt in light of the decision with Abe Assad, how certain teams have managed to remain strong at specific weights throughout the years regardless of overall team strength, along with the still looming threat of Penn State’s long track record of pulling everything together come March.
