    Cody Garcia was a four-time NCAA Division II All-American and two-time champion at powerhouse Nebraska-Omaha under coach Mike Denney. Garcia, the son of a coach himself, started his career at his alma mater after finishing up with his eligibility in 2009. Most in wrestling know what happened in Omaha at the end of the 2011 season, but Garcia moved on to coach at two NAIA schools in Kansas. His first stop would be Bethany before spending the last seven years leading the Wildcats of Baker University in Baldwin City, Kansas.Garcia returns to Division II as the 10th coach at Central Missouri, the same place where his father Mike won an NCAA Division II title in 1982. On Episode 705 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, I talk with Garcia about his path through Omaha, wrestling for Coach Denney at “the other place,” and his return to Division II. Garcia also touches on going into the UNO Hall of Fame despite the school no longer fielding its championship wrestling program and the emotion involving the experience as well as the dynamic of the coaching tree of his college coach impacting the landscape of Division II wrestling in Missouri.

    Sometimes we get an opportunity to put new gear to use and try to come up with new features to bring another perspective to coverage and content. Episode 698 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast is just that. With some new wireless devices used to record audio, I hit record on Augsburg co-head coach Tony Valek during the annual Battle of the Burgs dual on January 27 in Minneapolis. What this episode highlights is Valek's coaching style just as the meet begins, during the competition and how he gets athletes ready during the moments before competing, during injury time and some interactions with the staff as they go through a heated dual meet. Set to background music, this can be consumed as a passive listening experience or listened closely to see how certain coaches are in mat side situations. Will there be more of these? That's dependent on the feedback. We have two so far - both coming from Battle of the Burgs. Eric Keller, Wartburg head coach, will be released soon.

    Zach Bogle started a current events wrestling outlet called Stalemates in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. With no wrestling, what else did wrestling people get to do to try to stay busy? It was like an extended offseason. Enter Bogle and Stalemates, which summed up the “Twitter tea” with weekly episodes, guests, goofy memes and a general breath of fresh air the wrestling world needed. Stalemates also ushered in another wrestling card concept, with a lot of former wrestlers and weekend warriors mixing things up in the Stalemates Street League. The second iteration will be coming October 29 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines. Fans can subscribe to Stalemates via Patreon (patreon.com/stalemates) to watch for $3.99.

After the drop of wrestling at some wannabe school in Norfolk, Virginia, Jim Dutrow wanted to do more to draw awareness to our sport and the #WrestlingShirtADayInMay movement was born. Dutrow, a Virginia native and former college wrestler at some school in Harrisonburg that also dropped wrestling, launched the initiative as a way to recognize schools with wrestling and thank them for their support. The second year #WrestlingShirtADayInMay has seen over 150 wrestling fans showcase over 1,000 shirts and counting just 10 days into the month.
