Tomorrow, Capo, you will find out what stuff you are made of…

We have a league dual tomorrow, yet several of our wrestlers are out.  Some gaps in the lineup at all levels in key places.

It is in times like these that you find out just what you have down deep.  It is easy to wrestle with vigor when you feel good; quite another thing to push through discomfort and keep the eye when you are down.

In 1998, #1 nationally ranked Mitch Clark found himself undefeated going into the last dual of the season, facing a highly ranked wrestler from Illinois. With a heavy dose of the flu and vomiting profusely, Clark could have preserved his record and sat out of the meet, but he decided to wrestle anyway. He lost the match by one point. However, he recovered to win the Big Ten title over the same foe a week later, then won a national title soon after.

Tomorrow you will have a chance to do just that.  You guys that are hurtin,’ you will need to dig deep.  You guys that aren’t hurtin, more will be required of you than normal.


Time to tighten up.
