    If you're curious OU fans are about as much to blame for the fall of their wrestling program as anyone.

    That's the thing though. Historically OU is a very good wrestling program and currently they put a lot of money into it comparative to other wrestling programs. Also have a well respected coach. They still can't recruit for crap right now. Any chance it's cause their fans mock it? I'd guess that...

    If you want to frame it as just the final, which was moved over to ESPN2 from the year prior which was on ESPN that's accurate that ratings dropped,, but if you tack on the rest of the weekend they do 8,000,000+ in a 3 day tournament which is massively higher than what the gymnastic NCAA...

    Cowboys at the Wrestling US Open

    He has a buy into the finals of the trials, but would still have to wrestle there to make the team.

    Cowboys at the Wrestling US Open

    Here's the WTT Qualification rules for Juniors and Seniors. I hate that they make the process as complicated as it is. Hard for casual fans to follow. http://content.themat.com/forms/2018-MFS-WTT.pdf http://content.themat.com/forms/2018JuniorWTT-MFS.pdf

    Cowboys at the Wrestling US Open

    Here's sort of a synopsis of where OSU is right now with this, and honestly the World Team qualification procedures sorta confused me at first, so I hope how I explain this all makes sense for you all. Fix, Dieringer, and Schafer are all in the Senior level finals. Fix and Schafer have World...

    2018 NCAA Wrestling Championships

    I just wonder what kind of cash they had to pay Flynn to leave Edinboro? Had to have been a lot to get him to leave a school he'd been at for 20 years? Good to see they're committed to wrestling. They're definitely putting some cash into it. They built a brand new room up there a few years ago.

    Just throwing it out there. Holder says something pretty similar here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=7c0Jp3BNc-0

    NCAA Tournament

    I'm not sure how the conference distributes the finances, I.E. Does every team in the conference get the same amount? Did some math on how I understand the payouts to work though and if the Big 12 can win 2 of the 3 games today and tomorrow, then send one to the final, the conference will make...

    NCAA Tournament

    I know a lot of people like to rip the Big 12, but they're picking up around $5 million per team that made the Sweet 16. $20 Million total and $2 million per school, much more per school than any other conference. Could make even more if they keep winning and even got some money from Texas, TCU...

    2018 NCAA Wrestling Championships

    Within maybe 2 months of hiring Perry and Caldwell they flipped 2 of the top recruits in the country. One that was committed to PSU and one to Minnesota. John may not be the young blood you’re talking about with the energy to get out and recruit, but he is the wrestling celebrity you’re...

    2018 NCAA Wrestling Championships

    PFB is down. Otherwise I'd link my write up on it, but they are working on raising money for a new one. Supposed to be where the practice field was. No idea on timelines, funding, etc... Personal opinion on Holder is he does a good job, but when it comes to wrestling I think he's looked at it...
