That's an interesting thought. I compared Coach Gundy's 15 year career to the 15 years prior to him being named head coach.

Bedlam statistics from 2005 to 2019:
Record: 2-13
Winning percentage: 13.3%
Average point differential: 11.73 points in favor of Oklahoma

Bedlam statistics from 1990 to 2004:
Record: 5-9-1
Winning percentage: 35.7%
Average point differential: 7.6 points in favor of Oklahoma

The point differential margin in the bedlam game has widened under Coach Gundy in comparison to recent history. That probably has more to do with Oklahoma though. Stoops & Riley elevated their program back to an elite level.
The years 1995-2002 were a statistical anamoly that you would have to go back to the 1920's/1930's to beat. The previous 15 years had only 1 victory (76) and you would have to go back to 65/66 and then another twenty years to get more. Only 5 wins and 3 ties in the 60 years from 1934-1994.

Our key to victory in that game is apparently OU hiring another Blake/Schnellenberger.

Ou barely fields a team these days and still we lost to them recently...btw, we are Penn States bitch and have been for a long time now in a sport we should win NCAA titles in at least every few years. When did we win the last one? I hope that changes, but switching coaches isn’t the answer in wrestling either.

This inconvenient truth hurts the argument of those who simply want to trash HCMG

Serious question: Is there anything aside from NCAA violations or criminal activity that would cause you to not support coach Gundy?
Serious answer: Yes. Actual lack of success by the team and coaches. Not the Sunday morning whining you can read on the internet, real lack of success. This crying and gnashing of teeth over losing to ou is just more of the same old 1-game season stuff that osu fans used to claim, beat ou and the season is a success. Well, that ain't the case anymore, and 14 straight seasons over .500 is pretty darned successful, no matter how much YOU dislike it.

For the last 8 or 9 years everybody has been Pemn States bitch in wrestling. No one has dominated like they have since Iowa in the late 20th century. What Cael Sanderson has done there is simply amazing. We could use a new facility for Wrestling.

1. Define "success".
2. If your definition of "success" is related to our historical performance instead of our current circumstances, then you're already hopeless.

We are the 2nd winningest program in the Big 12 in the last decade.
Conference records:
UO 73-16
OSU 58-31

They have 15 more wins than us, but you guys want him fired because we don't beat UO enough.

We have gotten over the hurdle if being a winning program. Beating UO and/or winning more conference ships is the next hurdle. With Gundy out recruiting as soon as he could Sunday, I have no doubt that he is working to be able to get us over that next hurdle.

So, if we don't hate Gundy, we're hopelessly lost? Got it.

Not making a bowl a few years in a row would do it...but that's not likely with the way we have preformed in the past decade.
