Quotes and Comments from the Finals of the National Duals



Marty Morgan, assistant coach of the University of Minnesota, speaking on the loss of a Minnesota team point after a verbal exchange with the officiating crew "I made a mistake but I felt like our guy needed to be protected more. I almost went out to break the hold, our guys arm was in a bad position and the action wasn't going anywhere. There was a real need to protect the safety of our wrestler." Damian Hahn, 184 pound wrestler for Minnesota, speaking on his last second takedown and victory over #2 ranked Daniel Cormier who previously major decisioned him in their first meeting "At the first dual I didn't have a clear head.....I had just lost a childhood friend....my best friend.....who unexpectedly passed away. So this time with my mind clear I was able to go out and brawl for seven minutes and fight for the takedown till the very end." Daniel Cormier, OSU 184 pounder, on his upset loss to Damian Hahn "I just wrestled as hard as I could what happened, happened......I was aggressive and it went against me at the end, but I will keep after it....I'm disappointed." J. Robinson, Head Coach of Minnesota, on its championship performance at the National Duals "That's what we came here to do.....We're not where we need to be yet...but it feels good.....I think we have our team together now.....we need to improve the rest of the way. Mark Cody, assistant coach at the OSU on the Cowboys loss to Minnesota "It's disappointing....we're beat up a little right now....but we have to be able to win those close one. We still had a lot of guys show heart in even in defeat....Brown, Walker, Humml, and Cormier all wrestlerd real well." Leroy Vega, 125 pound All-American to heavyweight Garrett Lowney on who has to carry the tournament placard, which is about eight feet tall to the van "Hey freshman, you got to carry it."
