    Tom Brands

    "I'd be a liar if I sat here and told you this isn't what I've worked my whole career for. There is no place I wanted to coach other than Iowa. I was late for some things as a kid, but I was never late for Iowa public television broadcasts of Iowa wrestling.?


    ?It wasn't a street-fighting contest, but it was a street-fighting mentality. And frankly, that's why the Brands brothers had a bad rap. Nobody could handle the level we competed at. Nobody -- except for the people that was on our side.?

    ?I can't express how happy I am that my former coach, Dan Gable, has decided to join my staff at Iowa. He's been with me every step of the way during my career and this will be no different. There's no one in the world who's better at working with wrestlers and I'm glad he's on board."

    "Just because you were Iowa and there were 20 years of domination and then there's a lull, they would still give you their best shot and love to kick you while you're down. But now we're back up to that position where they truly do hate your success. That may be a negative word, but it's true and we embrace it. And that hate, as passionate as it is against you, we'll take it because the people who are on our side are so passionately for you, it is deep, it is in the bone marrow of them, it's deep and we love it."

    "I'm not getting worked up about this. This isn't like a quarterback controversy, it's just different. At quarterback, you need a guy who can lead a team. At 133, we need a guy who can whip some tail."

    "You talk about steps and domination," Brands said. "We dominated maybe in score. But we need to widen the gap and not have so many close matches maybe."

    "We're a little bit sloppy and we've got work to do," he said. "There were some good things. I know one thing: I know Brent Metcalf is an expert and he still can get better. That's a good thing, and that's how he approaches every day. He gets better every day. He's an expert. You watch him out there and it's like (former Hawkeye Mark) Ironside, where everything's to the end. Everything he does is a means to the end, and that's to get the fall."


    "He quits, not because he wants to, but because he has to. He has no choice."


    "The challenge is the same every year. The battle is in-state. The battle is the Big 10 Conference. The battle is national. The battle is planet Earth. And if they find life out there, then the battle will be universal."

    First of all, the reception has been overwhelmingly positive. People are really excited for us to put a show back on the mat that's really entertaining. The tradition dictates that Iowa wrestling is about winning national championships, and that's what I am here to do.

    "You know what, you sound like a broken record saying it, but there is work to do. And that's a positive thing because we haven't leveled out, or topped out, and we never will."

    "This sport is like any other endeavor in life. You can always do better."

    "I spent most of my time wrestling looking up at the lights."-John McCain

    (I actually like McCain as a person, so this quote to me is humorous, not political).

    "It's endorphins, it's adrenaline, it's a natural drug that's in your body because of that roar [of the crowd]. If that makes you poop your pants, you're in the wrong sport, buddy."

    Said in reference to Morningstar and Keddy as freshmen.

    "The only thing that matters in wrestling are your teeth and your testicles. Anything else, keep wrestling, stop whining."

    Gary Dierks-my highschool wrestling coach after I busted my nose as my opponent and I shot on each other at the exact same time.

    I laughed and blood shot out my nose.
