    OU over West Virginia tonight on TV, announcer said more than once that the Sooners are undefeated in the conference. I guess they forgot about their little trip to Stillwater.

    OU's dual with Pitt this weekend is at Tuttle HS. I hope Plott wears a Cowboys shirt and sits in the front row.

    Kinda makes sense though - OU wrestling in a HS gym. In fairness, Tuttle probably should be the team that wrestles in McCasland.

    They don’t count that as a loss since they didn’t really show up.

    It's listed on SoonerSports as a loss. It's not forgotten.

    So Rosselli takes a page from Tom Ryan's playbook and schedules a dual at an in-state HS (a recruiting tactic).

    Then has free admission and arranges for food to be there.

    And loses.

    I mean that is bad. So, so bad. Losing at Tuttle to an average at best team is not good.

    It is why I have been saying our fans freaking out about the OURTC is dumb. You can have the best RTC in the world but if OU doesn't eventually show progress on the mat it doesn't matter.

    I have said this before and I will say it again. For the good of wrestling in the state of Oklahoma and in the nation OU has got to improve and we, as Cowboy fans, have to want them to succeed. Obviously I want to win every time we wrestle them but if they get to the point where they win occasionally that is a good thing. It means they have gotten better and at the same time we have to improve our wrestling to stay ahead. The enthusiasm is gone from Bedlam wrestling and we need it back. We do need to improve our RTC program with major bucks. We need big donors and small donors alike. I am in the latter category but my retirement pay could stand to contribute a reasonable amount say on a monthly basis.The first step is to work on a fund drive that will appeal to all donors, large and small and get it done!
    LETS GO POKES!!!

    For sure, which has been my point all along. Worry about the PSU, ASU, OSU and Iowa RTCs. Our fans freaking out about the OURTC has always been dumb. OU is a long, long way from competing with us on any level.

    we need to worry about running our own race, and not necessarily on OU. OU priorities isn't to make wrestling elite again unfortunately. Their priorities are football, which is king, mens basketball, baseball (funds to remodel the stadium as well as other accessories), mens golf has taken off for them, and gymnastics is a huge staple for them. A lot of my buddies consider OU wrestling as an afterthought along with their tennis program. OU has made some strides, but reality is OU wrestling is far away from being the top 5-10 team they once were and don't be heading that direction anytime soon.

    I watched the Ohio State dual last night and they toured their current facilities, and they may be close to most jr highs as far as locker rooms go. Unfortunately they also toured their new facility and it is an absolute game changer. 5 mats long, adjoining competition arena, lounge, locker room the works! It is a multi sport facility but they share it with volleyball, something that couldn’t be done In Stillwater. It’s hard to share facilities with equestrian.

    Apparently the Sooners are no longer using the tagline - "tOUgh Together".

    After watching the dual and having the food provided, a new tagline has been suggested for OU wrestling - "No sizzle and no steak".
