Not to be a downer, but let's wait and see how they finish at NCAA's.

Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

Wise words.


I was there. Other than Terry @ 149, James @ 174 and even though he lost Smith @ 165, this was NOT a very inspired team.  Seth Veron got pinned but is just a Frosh and has potential, his brother on the other hand got beat by a clearly intferior wrestler.

This current undefeatd streak is a rult of 2 things.
#1 The dismal condition of the OK Aggies
#2 Lack of any real competition in dual opponents

As soon as the conference schedule kicks in losses will add up quickly.
I STILL believe this team is the Big XII cellar dweller and there isnt one kid I can look at and have much confidence that he'll AA this year.

This IS a very young team, but Jack just doesnt have a good record of turning avg wrestlers into good ones. And the good one's hes had recently (Ware, Hazewinkle, Flaggert) just didnt improve much from Frosh to Senior year.

They SAY the attitude is better this year.  Lets see where it is in late Feb & early March.
