He was fairly low key about the match against ISU as he claims this year's Gopher squad is better than last year's national champions. He "wanted to wrestle ISU early to see what they had to improve on to get ready for the nationals." Matches that he was particularly interested in was 133, 157, and 184. He said HWT is the only weight the Gophers are weak at. When asked if ISU was the #2 team in the country, he said "they have some good kids. They have a number of sophmores coming back that are a year older so we'll see how they do." J did remind the Minnesota fans of who Cael was and what he accomplished as an undefeated wrestler.
