Oregon State looking flat.
« on: January 03, 2021, 11:53:44 AM »
Watching the OSU vs NDSU dual meet and Oregon State is looking really flat.  I expected them to come out with a little bit more pop.  I wonder if this is a result of coaching changed or more likely I wonder what kind of restrictions OSU is operating under being that Oregon is fairly locked down right now.

It could be interesting to see if the states that are more "locked down" struggle this year.

I can't imagine a wrestler holding back to avoid constant close contact.  Both teams wrestlers coaches and staff were likely tested (should have been) tested on Thursday with results back on Friday prior to travel

I'm not talking about the OSU guys holding back.  I am more curious what kinds of regulations and requirements may have hindered their ability to prepare.  It could also just be that OSU wasn't as ready to compete as NDSU.

They should have had plenty of time in the room.  The NCAA recommends breaking down the team into small groups with separate practices.  Depending on the size of the weight class, it could 125's and 133's, 141's and 149's, etc. That will prevent an entire team getting quarantined.  In season team practices and competitions require PCR or antigen testing 3 times per week and within 3 days of any competition.

The wrestlers will only be comfortable if they have confidence the team and opponent have avoided non-team close contact.

Could Pendleton be coaching them to be patient with their shots?

Not as flat as they looked against Mizzou evidently.

At every weight, Mizzou had the higher ranked wrestler, by quite a bit.   I'm guessing Z totally decimated the team.  Heck Rock wouldn't send his boys there and took Hans out, so that says something.  Pendleton has his work cut out for him for sure.  Hopefully he can inspire locals to get on board and wrestle and root for them.  Z had a long slog of missed opportunities and outright apathy for the program.  Glad he's gone.
