Attendance I understand. But I don't know why are facilities would be lacking. I really don't know what "facilities" means when it comes to wrestling. Not trying to be a smart ***, but I wrestled in high school and the facilities were 4 walls and a mat. Now before anyone dog piles me I know major college is a long way from high school but I would think facilities would be largely the weight room they share with football, which is pretty impressive. If there is anything lacking for the program I would hope we have enough old timer alumni wrestling fans who would raise hell.
The other aspect is just room to work. Not as big a factor as recruiting IMO. If you're wrestling a live match in practice and bumping into other guys constantly it makes it awkward and tougher to wrestle matches in practice that are comparative to your regular matches. If you're in a live go and scrambling, which is a good real world practice, then bump into 2 HWT's that if they fall on you will probably break your leg you're probably going to stop in fear of your life and they'll also probably stop to avoid killing you. That's not good to have that issue because you need to wrestle out that stuff in practice to be able to do it in real matches. The room at OSU is small and that really is an issue there.
