Since that time, they have worked hard, have had the right attitude. This event is a good measure of this team for the rest of the year. This win is big for us. It gives us respectability. I think it helps our guys. It sends a message to our guys, about just how good they are, so they start believing it. " "The NCAA Championships is a different tournament. Iowa is the one to watch. Balance makes a big difference here at this event. They have the stars for the nationals. We are excitied about the nationals. We are looking forward to it." "The keys for us is that our guys were fighting. Even if we were losing, we were fighting hard. This sends a message When you wrestle us, it will be hard. We have 10 Spartans out there fighting. They will fight for each other. They will fight for themselves." Oklahoma State Head Coach John Smith: "It is hard to give up bonus points and expect to win. The pin at 165 took the steam out of us a little. Give credit to Minnesota. They wrestled hard. We didn't wrestle badly. We were complancent in some places. Every team at this touranment matches up with us well. We didn't have any easy victories. We have to scrap to win." "This gives us a lot of things to focus on. It shows us we have to prepare more to go hard for two days of competition. We are not yet in condition to go five or six straight tough matches."
