Iowa wrestler Sammy Brooks hilariously credits mullet for Big Ten Championship

Iowa wrestler Sammy Brooks had a big weekend, winning the 184-pound Big Ten wrestling championship title on Saturday.

The secret to Brooks' success? His mullet.

The junior wrestler gave all the credit to his hair in a hilarious post-match interview with the Big Ten Network.

Check it out:

"You can't grow a great mullet in a day, you can't win a Big Ten title in a day." Wise words.

Brooks will next head to Madison Square Garden in New York for the NCAA Championships from March 17-19. The NCAA announces the tournament seeds on Wednesday.
