Always Aggressive Podcast | Season 2, Episode 20
Coach Tony Ersland joins hosts Tanner Lipsett and Cory Palm to discuss the results from the 2021 Big Ten Championships, who performed well and what the team still needs to work on as eight Boilermakers get ready for next week's NCAA Championships in St. Louis.
The 2021 Big Ten Wrestling Championships are in the books and the Boilermakers have eight individuals qualified for the national tournament. Purdue head coach Tony Ersland, Cory Palm and Tanner Lipsett take a look back at the Boilermakers' performance over the weekend and what lies ahead at NCAA's.
The Boilermakers placed eight individuals at the Big Ten Championships for the second straight year and finished in the top-six for the second straight season as well, scoring 76.0 points. Senior Devin Schroder reached the finals for the second year in a row, wrestling five places ahead of his No. 7 seed with a runner-up showing. Purdue saw three individuals place fifth, one take six and three others place seventh.
Ersland goes through each guys’ performance and looks ahead at the opportunity that awaits the group in St. Louis at the Enterprise Center. Seedings and brackets for the NCAA Championships will be announced Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET at NCAA.com, and the show will return Monday with a look at the Boilermakers’ seeds and path to the championship at each weight.
