Episode 12 of The Guillotine Grapevine rocks some historic talk as Apple Valley's Mark Hall made history winning his sixth individual state championship to go along with six team championships.

Before we get to Hall, we caught up with St. Michael-Albertville's Mitchell McKee after he won his third championship, stepping on the mat a few weights after his brother Patrick claimed the crown at 106 pounds. Following McKee, we talked with New Prague's Griffin Parriott, who wowed the XCel Energy Center crowd with a 10-second fall in the state championship in AA.

Then we get to Hall, who answered questions from loads of TV stations and newspapers. He talked about the goals he had coming in to beat Destin McCauley's five individual titles and six team titles as well as wrestling with his future college coach Cael Sanderson in attendance.

We also got a few minutes with Sanderson and he gave his impressions about the quality and atmosphere at the Minnesota State Championships.

Episode 11 of The Guillotine Grapevine features one of the top wrestling journalists in the country, Ben Pherson from the Rochester Post-Bulletin.

Ben talks about how he gets the right stories to tell in the paper and how he's taken his passion for wrestling and worked it into his day-to-day job at the paper. Ben's got an interesting backstory, but the Minnesota State Championships have been a big part of it throughout his career.

With newspapers constantly downsizing and sacrificing coverage for more national, cookie-cutter types of content, Ben's providing the local and state community with great features and coverage. We sit and chat with Ben, get off topic at times, but have some fun.

Minnesota native Ned Shuck is currently the head coach at Division III UW-Whitewater and coach Shuck talks about the reasons he comes back to recruit now that he's closer to home.

On Episode 9 of the Guillotine Grapevine, the focus comes back to Minnesota wrestling and what makes it great at the Division III level. Jeff Swenson, current Athletics Director at Augsburg and the architect for 10 of the 12 Auggie national championships joins the program.

Swenson talks about his two separate runs as the program's head coach, what he learned from coaching high school at Rosemount prior to coming back to the program as well as a number of things that Minnesota has offered to help make the program one of the crown jewels of college wrestling.

We'll also visit with UW-La Crosse head coach Dave Malecek as he talks about why he recruits the state of Minnesota. There are numerous Minnesota natives throughout the Eagles lineup. We'll also catch up with former Auggie Donny Wichmann, who was in attendance as the school honored the 1991 National Championship team, the first wrestling title won by the school. Wichmann was an assistant coach on that team.

Then we'll, as usual, make fun of Chad Johnson's mustache with NCAA Division III champion Donny Longendyke.
