    Well, it’s not just that. It is also other balcony level issues.

    But Harris couldn’t recall what those issues are.

    For an interview with a wrestling blog.

    About one of the most-storied buildings under his watch.
    Real top guy running this thing.

    We're lucky to have him.

        The Fraud that is David Harris

        Schwab does amazing considering he's given no support.

          Just to follow up on that - I think it would absolutely shock some people at how little support the wrestling squad gets from the athletic department. Even discounting all the fundraising that Schwab and his staff do, and how they ask for very little of it back in return.

          Maybe not people on this fine, high quality website. But just the general public.

            This seems to be a theme. See Farley finding funding for the team room and practice field himself.

                  Former Panther All-Conference defensive player Jamar Thompson, now an assistant athletic director whose primary responsibility is raising money for the athletic department, led the fundraising effort for the team room, with the majority of the money coming from other former Panther players.

                    Baloney. He gets funds to the program like I've not seen in 25 years, and I've yet to not see him at a post-season tournament. What more do you expeck?

                    Now, shall we talk about the "support" from the ADs during the Penrith years?

                    Which winning percentage is better: 65% or 61%?

                      I know, for a fact, that the wrestling program has raised more money than they've gotten back for certain projects.

                      Not to mention the debacle that was the wrestling room renovation and how that was handled (I know, different administration).

                      And I'm not sure who you're talking about when you say, "I've yet to not see him." I assume you mean Harris?

                      Now that Michelle is back, communication efforts are much better/accurate again. And there's no excuse to have to hire the coach's wife to run the teams social when your SID quits. As has been discussed in other threads, there's a lot more the university can do to increase fan interaction.

                        Being that the gym felt like a sardine can again last night-I'm one of the few THRILLED to see rasslin move to the McLeod and have advocated for it for years-I can't help but wonder that if the decision was made before the season to move rasslin to the McLeod, then why wasn't it just done for the entire season this year?

                        Once again, could have sold a lot more tickets than just 600-700.

                          Good for you. Hope you bring 7,000+ of your friends to get a sell out.

                          The Iowa State dual will be 4000ish, about what they had for Okie State a couple years ago. The Wisconsin dual will be....not good.

                            No, sir! That's exactly the idea. NOT bring 7,000 sos that I can have plenty of elbow room and don't have to get there an hour before to get MY seat.

                            The idea of a sellout, although a glamorous thought, is folly, given both venues. If you can only get 2,200 into the West Gym WHY NOT rassle in a venue that surpasses that, which we will do nearly every dual, at this pernt. School makes more money and I'm happy. A win-win for all parties!

                              So are they fixing the west gym problems, or is it not going to be “home” in the future?

                                “They” as in David Harris and his administration will not be fixing anything, as they have neither the ambition or ability to actually do their job to fundraise and solve problems.

                                They will stay silent, hope nobody notices that they have done literally nothing, and simply allow the building to be decommissioned.
