With the 53rd Ken Kraft Midlands set to kick off on December 29, Episode 232 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast visits with Denny McCabe, one of the original champions from the first event back in 1963.

McCabe won what was then known as the Western Suburban YMCA Open in La Grange, Ill., at 190 pounds. One of four champions from Southern Illinois University (Carbondale), it ended up being the highlight of his collegiate career as injuries kept him from postseason competition.
McCabe, who still remains active in the wrestling discussions to this day as "Denny" on TheMat.com forums, goes back in time to talk about the Chicagoland wrestling scene back then and how cool it was to have a holiday event so close for home.

McCabe also breaks down his international career in the Armed Forces and working with his college teammate, World and Olympic Team member Larry Kristoff.

With the Olympics coming up, there's also a special deal going on from Rocket Languages, one of the fastest ways to learn a foreign language. With the Olympics in Rio, it's a perfect time to get your Portuguese on to prepare. Or maybe you want to go the Spanish route, or the even more mysterious Russian.

Just in time for Christmas, Episode 231 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast brings the return of Chael Sonnen. The always verbose Sonnen had an itch to talk about the U.S. Nationals and a couple of topics in wrestling and we're going to scratch it, just in time to hit the egg nog.

An All-American at Oregon and an MMA fighter and now TV and podcast personality covering combat sports, Sonnen is still a giant wrestling fan and helps spread the word of the sport on his show, You're Welcome, available at podcastone.com.

We'll talk about some of the performances in Vegas, the marketing of women's wrestling and some thoughts about Mark Schultz's latest appearance on Chael's show.

With the Olympics coming up, there's also a special deal going on from Rocket Languages, one of the fastest ways to learn a foreign language.

The dual meet season leads to a lot of results where A beats B, B beats C, C beats D and D beats A. That's really nothing new in wrestling, but on Episode 230 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, we'll talk with Lehigh head wrestling coach Pat Santoro as the Mountain Hawks are fresh off a 30-7 win over No. 8 Oklahoma in Norman.

Coach Santoro is in his eighth year as the head coach at Lehigh. He explains his journey to Lehigh, which was "home" despite wrestling collegiately at Pittsburgh. Santoro explains the tradition of Lehigh wrestling and what this year's team has to do to be in a position to bring home a team trophy come March.

We'll also briefly touch on the passing of Iowa high school wrestlers Austin Roberts. The Spencer H.S. wrestle collapsed at a weekend tournament and passed away shortly thereafter. For information on how you can help the family, check out the GoFundMe.com page here.

Coach Pacheco was a product of the California Community College system before moving on to Idaho State, where he as a Division I qualifier in 1978 and 1979. He's been coaching at Sac City since 1983 and has put dozens and dozens of wrestlers on college mats at the Division I, II, III and NAIA levels.

We go back north of the border and visit with Canadian heavyweight Korey Jarvis on Episode 228 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast. Yes, our obsession with our wrestling neighbors to the north continues with Jarvis' story in trying to find time to chase his Olympic dream.

A native of Elliot Lake, Ontario (we had to look it up, too), Jarvis explained his rocky wrestling road to the Univesity of Guelph and then his time as a welder. Yes, Jarvis is a welder by trade and balances work, training and a family, all while finding various ways to financially support the dream.

Jarvis breaks down his typical week and compares and contrasts how his life is in relation to his American contemporaries.

Can you believe Nahshon Garrett wasn't even going to head to college? No, he wasn't planning on not wrestling, he didn't really have plans to go to college at all. On Episode 227 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Garrett talks about his development in wrestling and what ultimately led him to believe he could perform in Division I wrestling.

A native of Chico, Calif., Garrett keeps a pretty even kiel and balances wrestling with time off the mat helping out at church. He's now up at 133 pounds and is loving the sport again after essentially hating every second of it last season as the cut down to 125 started to take its toll.

Garrett breaks down how fun coach Rob Koll can be, what it was like watching Kyle Dake on his journey to college wrestling greatness and simply, how to treat people.

He also talks a little bit about that win over returning NCAA champion Cody Brewer.

Yeah, we weren't going to leave that out.

We head North of the Border for Episode 226 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast where we'll chat with Vang Ioannides and Tamara Medwidsky about the Canadian Wrestling Team Trials that were held in Strathcona County in Alberta.

Having never covered a true Canadian wrestling event, this was on my wrestling bucket list and the staff and Wrestling Canada Lutte were great in their hospitality and giving me some access I wasn't expecting upon my arrival into Alberta.

Ioannides is the Associate AD at the University of Alberta while Medwidsky is the Executive Director of Wrestling Canada Lutte and both answer some questions we in the states might have about how they do things "up there."

Tremendous performances all around and big thanks to Andy Ross from the Alberta Amateur Wrestling Association and 49Northwrestling.com for all his help and knowledge from the event.

Episode 225 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast visits with Tommy Rowlands, a four-time All-American at Ohio State University and a 2007 U.S. World Teamer in men's freestyle.

Rowlands has been doing various things in and around wrestling since he got out of coaching, but his two most recent happenings involve the new wrestling apparel company, The Rudis, and his new podcast with 2008 Olympian and current OneFC champion Ben Askren.

The podcast, the T-Row and Funky Show (Subscribe on iTunes) gives an athlete's take on the topics in wrestling and while it's only three episodes in, will also interview people on those topics as well.

Rowlands is also a partner in The Rudis, the apparel line that's featured the Dave Schultz t-shirts that have become prevalent around the wrestling community.

Rowlands will also look back at one of the more painful moments in his career, the injury default that sent him to sixth place at the 2003 NCAA Division I Championships and he'll discuss his rivalry with Steve Mocco.

We also take some time at the beginning of the show to remember the late Allen Brown, one of the main sources of info at WrestlingReport.com. Allen was a good friend and his passing is a real loss for the wrestling community.

Episode 224 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast ventures outside of wrestling to identify how a small, grassroots organization has blossomed to over 400 member leagues in 18 countries. That organization is the Women's Flat Track Derby Association.

Yes, it's roller derby.

Why on earth would anyone try to compare the non-P.C. world of women's roller derby to college an international wrestling? It's simple -- they get fans. Earlier this month, I went down to St. Paul and checked out the WFTDA International Championships at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium. This place is no stranger to wrestling, having previously hosted World Team Trials in Greco-Roman.

Roller derby, even with its rough-around-the-edges skaters, has been a steady draw around the country. In 2009, I attended a bout between the Minnesota Roller Girls and a team from North Carolina. Four thousand people attended. A day later, the University of Minnesota hosted a home dual. Roller derby outdrew the Gophers. If you go to cities where college wrestling has a presence, I don't doubt you'll find derby leagues close that do better in attendance than college wrestling programs, and all without the benefit of athletic department backing.

Mia Culprit and Mary Lou Wretched (no, not their real names) offer some insight from a governing body perspective and a league perspective. Mia Culprit works for the WFTDA, while Mary Lou Wretched works on the marketing arm in Kansas City.

What can we learn from roller derby? Let's find out.
