ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Iowa wrestling coach Tom Brands wasn't in a reflecting type of mood late Thursday night.
Brands wasn't in a sour mood. No, Brands was sending a subtle message to his Hawkeye wrestling team that had six wrestlers advances to the quarterfinals and all nine of its qualifiers still alive after a solid first day at the NCAA Division I wrestling championships at the Scottrade Center.
Iowa sits in fourth place with 24.5 points, one behind Oklahoma State, 1.5 behind Ohio State and just six behind defending champion Penn State.
