This week, TOM got a chance to sit down with Northern Colorado head coach Troy Nickerson and talk about his up-and-coming program. The Bears head into the 2020-21 season with six returning national qualifiers, two of which were true freshmen that were a part of the Bears top-ten recruiting class in 2019. Also, Troy talks about his heavyweight (don’t call him Most Improved again), the man with the glorious mullet, Dalton Robertson. This week Northern Colorado was all over ESPN as UNC-alum Justin Gaethje is set to headline UFC 249. Nickerson talks about the publicity Justin has brought the program and him being a Bear for life. We also found out that Troy nearly got to wrestle one of his childhood favorites when he entered the Last Chance Qualifier, on a whim. #BearDown because the #Hibernation IsOver in Greeley, Colorado with this imposing squad that Nickerson leads.
