How will Iowa wrestlers fare in the upcoming Big Ten tournament? Do the Hawkeyes have a chance to win a conference title against the likes of Penn State and Ohio State, and how many individuals can they send to the NCAA championships in St. Louis?

Those topics, and more, are covered in this edition of the Pinning Combination podcast, hosted by K.J. Pilcher, with special guest J.R. Ogden. Other topics covered include the changing of the guard at Iowa State and how a new coaching staff might impact the Cyclones, plus a glance at UNI wrestling and the upcoming Division III wrestling championships.
