The only reason they went there is because of Brands. I remain skeptical of how good of a coach he is. But now with Dan Gable being his assistant I think he will be Head Coach in name only.
I disagree. Tom Brands is for real. Gable coached him and was able to not only turn him into a great wrestler, but taught him how to inspire others, er rather, squeeze every ounce of aggression and drive out of them.
Just as a side, we all know where the real wrestling mecca is, right?? For the record, that would be two states south to Okie State.
From my information, Brands was the reason that the really good wrestlers (all things being relative) chose VT. My nephew's best friend waited before committing to VT because of the questions and now he's headed to Iowa.
