Our #2 (for now) Iowa Hawkeyes are taking on the Purdue Boilermakers immediately following the Hawkeye basketball game, which you can read the preview for HERE. I blasted off a preview for this dual on Friday, which you can read HERE.
Although we won Friday night’s contest against Illinois 25-19 and pushed our overall record to a perfect 8-0, it was a far from perfect performance.
We split the matches 5-5, but won due to bonus point efforts from Spencer Lee, Max Murin, Patrick Kennedy, and Tony Cassioppi. In fact, we were tied going into the final match of the night with Big Cass. Everyone else was, well, blah. It was a boring and frustrating dual that unfortunately took place on fan appreciation night.
Tom Brands was less than impressed and you can view his frustration first hand in his post-dual presser below.
I encourage you to go back and read through the Illinois thread to get a firm grasp on where this squad is currently at... Thankfully Purdue isn’t a particularly solid team and this could be the ideal rebound matchup we need to get back on track.
