Would be catastrophic for the sport if that happened. Really we need them to get better. The popularity of the sport of growing a lot in Texas and Kansas, as well as sustained growth in Oklahoma... OU being good gives kids in these states an attractive option close to home. If they see the opportunity, they will take it seriously and continue to get even better. Plus those guys go home and coach or start academies.
It's important that they're a top 10 program. They won't pass us... So it would be nice to see them at least be better than Northern Colorado.
In all fairness, some high schools produce a better product. 0u is simply pathetic right now. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoy the annual bedlam wrestling beatdown but when there is no threat of them winning one or two matches, It sure isn't very exciting. I think they need to move on from the Rosselli experiment and hire a different coach who is fully invested in rebuilding the program to it's former status.
That was one hell of a match, thought they might steal it from him with the challenge late though. Loved how he said in the after match interview, that it was due to practicing in the “greatest wrestling room in the world at OSU” that helped him persevere and come out the winner.
