The cure for that Thanksgiving hangover will come on November 29 as Madison Square Garden in New York City will host its fourth Grapple at the Garden event. On Episode 223 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, we'll visit again with the Director of Sports Events for MSG, Dylan Wanagiel to talk about this year's event.

With 22 colleges in attendance and a number of local youth and high school athletes on the docket, the Grapple at the Garden is becoming a true showcase of college wrestling set with the World's Most Famous Arena as its backdrop.

Wanagiel will talk about all the logistics that go into staging an event at one of the world's busiest venues and how MSG has worked through those logistics to put on a tremendous early-season event and he'll also break down some of the things that will go into the 2016 NCAA Division I Championships at MSG.

There's also an "Easter Egg" in this episode, see if you can find it.

Episode 222 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast heads on the road, about 45 minutes east of the Twin Cities for a dual between the Air Force Academy and Division III UW-La Crosse. Why is this noteworthy? We've got some familial battles ongoing with the Malecek family.

Air Force won the dual 29-3, but for Air Force heavyweight Marcus Malecek, it was an opportunity to wrestle in his high school gym and compete in a dual against his uncle Dave, the head coach of UW-La Crosse.

We'll talk with Marcus, Dave and Dennis Malecek and Air Force head coach Sam Barber about the experience.

Wrestling fans who follow the world of mixed martial arts should know the name Charlie Brenneman. Known as "The Spaniard," Brenneman had a number of fights in the Ultimate Fighting Championships and has also held titles in various regional promotions.

On Episode 221 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Brenneman will talk about his new book, Driven: My Unlikely Journey from Classroom to Cage and break down the reasons behind he got into fighting and the reasons why he felt his story was compelling enough to write a book about it.

Brenneman just missed All-American honors his senior year at Lock Haven and went into teaching Spanish in his hometown. Then the first crack at television came with the reality competition series called Pros vs. Joes.

Brenneman will break down the experience and explain why that kickstarted his push into MMA. It's a fun conversation with The Spaniard.

American novelist John Irving has penned 14 books.

Two of his most famous are The Cider House Rules and The World According to Garp. In 1996, Irving wrote a memoir called The Imaginary Girlfriend, which outlines much of his wrestling and writing career as well as his foray into coaching and officiating.

On Episode 220 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Irving recalls his time growing up wrestling in New England, at the University of Pittsburgh and well after his career in college ended. Irving is currently on tour speaking about his new book Avenue of Mysteries, which is available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

I got an opportunity to sit down and have a conversation with Irving over breakfast to talk about the roles wrestling has played in his life, his inclusion in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame as an Outstanding American and how wrestling makes its way into his writing. It's a great opportunity to hear from one of our great advocates.

One of the most amazing spectacles in college wrestling history came and went in front of an NCAA-record 42,287 fans at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City as No. 4 Iowa knocked off No. 1 Oklahoma State 18-16 on Saturday, November 14.

On Episode 219 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast captures some sounds from Kinnick as well as the post-match press conferences with Tom Brands and John Smith. We'll also get some comments from Iowa 125-pounder Thomas Gilman and then get some insight on the development of the event from Iowa Director of Wrestling Operations Luke Eustice.

The Grapple on the Gridiron is set to have some great fall weather in Iowa on November 14. We've talked with Tom Brands, now we'll get the other perspective from Oklahoma State head coach John Smith on Episode 218 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast.

Coach Smith, who's seen and done just about everything there is to do in wrestling, jumped at the chance to wrestle Iowa in an outdoor dual at Kinnick Stadium. Smith breaks down the process from his side of things and we get his take on how he's preparing the Cowboy wrestling program for this historic dual.

Coach Smith also goes over some of the lineup questions concerning the recent open results at 133 and 157 pounds and whether or not he'll pull the trigger and send Kaid Brock and Joe Smith into the lineup.

With Joe, a freshman and the coach's son, competing and potentially being in a position to be the best guy at the weight, coach Smith talks about what it's finally like to be coaching his own son in the Cowboy wrestling room.

We'll also revisit the discussion on Smith's side of the relationship with Tom Brands and also find out how good Alex Dieringer is compared to some of the great all-time Cowboys.

Are you pumped for this?!

The Grapple on the Gridiron is coming to Kinnick Stadium on November 14 in Iowa City. On Episode 217 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Iowa coach Tom Brands talks about how excited he is for this dual and what his team has to do to prepare.

Brands, fresh off Iowa's media day last Thursday, also talks about the goals for this team this season and the keys to replacing a guy like Bobby Telford at heavyweight and what it will take for Nathan Burak to reach the top of the podium.

Brands will also explain what the mentality is for past Hawkeyes Tony Ramos and Brent Metcalf to get ready to try to make the 2016 Olympic team.
Brands also discusses his long relationship with Oklahoma State head coach John Smith and how the two have been able to co-exist, even when playing basketball. Yes, basketball.
