Welcome to episode one of TOM’s latest podcast “That One Match”. This will be a deep dive into all things related to Bubba Jenkins’ 2011 NCAA Final against David Taylor. That is the premise of the show. Just focusing on all of the important details of one singular match.
The two were briefly teammates after the arrival of Cael Sanderson as head coach at Penn State. Bubba talks about his time in the room with Taylor and the relationship with Cael. Jenkins goes through the match itself and some of the action leading up to the pin heard around the wrestling world. He also tells us how he almost ended up in the seats if it were up to his assistant coach Brian Stith.
For those that would prefer the video of the interview itself:
