Iowa Hawkeye Wrestling is a preseason number One

Posted: Updated:

It has been five years since the Iowa Hawkeyes have won an NCAA Team Wrestling title. 

The Hawks are an early favorite to bring home hardware in 2015. 

The Hawks are a preseason number one, returning 7 NCAA qualifiers and 4 All-Americans from the 2014 team that placed fourth. 

What has changed for the Hawks according to head coach Tom Brands, not much.

"Getting back on top of the heap, I don't think you change a whole lot," says Brands. "I'm not one of these guys that's a proponent for shooting from the hip. I do know that we have to do some things differently as far as personnel and getting guys to do some things differently so they become more consistent. But you're asking me to go a completely different direction. That's not going to happen."

Iowa opens the season on November 15th at the Luther Open.
