It is just about Halloween, which means it is also just about mid November. Gopher Wrestling fans I think you know what I am talking about....it is just about time for the 2011-12 season begin!
On November 12, Minnesota will take part in the annual Bison Open. Following that I am sure most of you who follow Gopher Wrestling know the first couple of matches. The Gophers will head to the east coast to take on Cornell and Penn State in their first weekend of action. Friday November 18 the Gophers will take on the Big Red at 5:30 p.m. CST, from Ithaca, N.Y. Two days later Minnesota will travel to take on the defending NCAA National Champions Penn State University. The match will be LIVE on the Big Ten Network at 11 a.m. CST.
In preparation of the season Head Coach J Robinson, who now enters his 26th season talked with Scott Casber of Takedown Wrestling about the upcoming season, what is right with the sport and the direction it is taking, team members and much more. The interview is about an hour long, so as Mr. Casber said on his website takedownradio.com grab a cup of coffee or a coke and sit back and listen to this great piece featuring Head Coach J Robinson.
