    Hard to believe this team lost to ISU in a dual.(No Jesse D, didn't help there)

    I knew they'd be a tough dual team since they are pretty solid across the board, but never would have predicted such a result against Okey st. Kevin Dresser is seeing his hard work pay off as are the kids.

    I actually could not be happier for a team and a program. I just wish to hell it was Iowa who had shown up and been shown the door by TV. This would have been the their year to do it. Maybe Brands knew that?

    I'm sure what VT is doing is constantly on Tom Brands' mind. That's the impression he has given in all the interviews and stories I've heard with him.

    Brands leaves... takes talent.

    Flash forward past graduation- Iowa refuses to go to National Duals.. VTech in finals..

    As a novice fan, is VTech really headed in the right direction or is this a combination of fluke and a lighter field than previous years?

    I remember not so long ago when some folks claimed that Brands would destroy wrestling at V Tech by leaving, and by the Iowa homeboys following him. Looks like that rationale was misguided. Also looks like Brands isn't the only Iowa wrestling alum who knows how to coach.

    Congratulations to Coach Dresser for the fine performance of his team at National Duals.
