"Throw me."

That's what Iowa wrestling coach Terry Brands told Cory Clark after the latter beat South Dakota State's Seth Gross 4-3 for the 133-pound national championship on Saturday.

Clark obliged.

"I freaked out," Clark told reporters. "I didn't know what to do; [I was] kind of out of it out there. [Brands] said, 'Throw me.' I go, 'No.' He goes, 'Throw me.' I said, 'All right.' I grabbed him and threw him. So that's what happened.

"I don't know if he wants you—he probably wants it to seem like I tossed him for some reason. I didn't want to throw him; he wanted [to be] thrown. He was fired up."

Upon video review, Brands definitely called for the takedown:

Here's Clark joking about the peculiar celebration:
