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
My son wrestles at Okie State and we know other kids that wrestle at tOSU and other D1 programs around the country. I agree that PSU's program is a juggernaut that is not getting sunk any time soon. Okie State has fallen behind PSU, tOSU and maybe even Iowa a bit (still consistenly better than Nebraska/... and Okie States win vs. Iowa was epic to watch in person!) .. I think this will start to get corrected once Okie State makes a capital investment in wrestling facilities. John Smith, the ledgendary head coach, is so old school that he has not been participating in the facilities arms race... but I believe that the Admin is going to force it on him.
