Another one of the great dynasties of College wrestling Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma, but Penn St may be the best of them all any real wrestling fans will appreciate their system....I always felt that dynasties fail because the best wrestlers in the country eventually want to separate their achievements from the program....if Penn State does it right they will be on top for quite a few more years

As long as the wrestling team climate does not put winning championships over protecting children from predators they will be loved and feared.....Paterno was loved until Sandusky destroyed everything he built winning became more important to the staff and community than its community....and even after the team has been missed
