Always Aggressive Podcast | Season 2, Episode 18
Coach Tony Ersland joins Tanner Lipsett and Cory Palm to discuss the regular season finale, a 38-3 dual meet victory over in-state rival Indiana, a meet that saw the Boilermakers win nine of 10 bouts, including six bonus point victories. Coach Ersland talks about the lessons learned in the final dual of the year and the points of emphasis as the team prepares now for championship season.
On the heels of history, the Always Aggressive Podcast dives into Purdue wrestling’s outstanding win over archrival Indiana on Monday in Holloway Gymnasium. The Boilermakers won 38-3, taking 9-of-10 matches against the Hoosiers, extending their series win streak to 11 straight and posting the largest margin of victory by either side in the rivalry in 100 years.
Head coach Tony Ersland and co-hosts Cory Palm and Tanner Lipsett devote specific attention to the victories by senior Griffin Parriott and freshman Gerrit Nijenhuis, who both won by fall Monday and picked up signature victories on their respective resumes. Six of the Boilermakers’ nine wins came with bonus points, as Purdue finished the Big Ten dual season at 4-5 and will now begin preparation for the 2021 Big Ten Championships, scheduled for March 6-7 at Penn State.
The Purdue wrestling program has seen a pair of its members featured in the past week with feature stories produced on juniors Parker Filius and Jared Florell. The crew takes a look at some of the Boilermakers as more than just wrestlers, but takes a peek at them as individuals as they tell their respective stories.
A few short notes at the end of the show on the extension of the NCAA recruiting dead period, the Big Ten Championships and a special guest on next week’s show.
