Gophers Inner Circle: Gophers Final Preparations

| No TrackBacks

The Golden Gopher wrestling team is all set for the 2012 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. Minnesota had one last team practice before wrestling gets underway from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo., tomorrow morning. 330 student-athletes will be competing this week.

It was announced this afternoon that tickets for this week's three-day event have been sold out. More than 110,000 fans are expected to attend over the course of the week.

Head coach J Robinson and company are excited for the week and have a strong feeling about their upcoming performance for the week.

"We have to be consistent this week and score bonus points," Robinson said. "We lost to Penn State at the Big Ten Championships by 15 points and those points came from bonus points in the final round. We have to be very consistent for these next three days and with how consistent we wrestle, will impact where we finish on Saturday."

Action gets underway tomorrow at 11 a.m. with Session I. All sessions will be broadcasted on ESPN. A portion of matches through session V will be streamed. A full schedule can be found below.
