Look at Texas. Its my understanding that there are more high school wrestling teams in just the Houston area than in the entire state of Oklahoma. The University of Texas has what is probably the highest athletic budget in the nation.  If ever there was a university ripe for adding college wrestling it is UT.

But dont count on it.
