Mark Cody steps down as coach at Oklahoma in College Wrestling Posted August 25, 2016 · Report reply 5 years IS enough time to right the ship. That depends on a lot of things, and Rob Koll and Cornell is not the correct argument to make. When Koll got to Cornell they didn't have what they have now. The Friedman Center, the Cornell JUCO pipeline, the money, the AAs, the wins. NOTHING. He built that from the ground up. Oklahoma had, before Cody showed up - a budget, a room, AAs (history), tradition, alumni, facilities, full scholarship and more importantly (as it pertains to the Rob Koll analogy), easy admissions AND fertile recruiting ground. Now, from what I know about Mark Cody, he is a GREAT MAN. Just one of the best people you could ever meet, and he genuinely cares about his athletes and how they do when the leave his program (trust me, that can't be said for every D1 coach). Oklahoma, as a state had a resurgence in its recruiting classes. When you have top 100 recruits signing up to be 3RD TEAM at OSU instead of being a presumptive day 1 starter at OU, yeah, you're not doing a good job. And he couldn't pull a Cael-at-ISU get out of state top recruits, it's a recipe for a program not doing a lot of winning.
