I wonder if Snyder will even return to college wrestling. If he medals in Rio, I doubt we see him in a Buckeye singlet again.

I see many people say this, but I've never seen a basis for this argument.  Maybe wishful thinking for some.  But Snyder has stated multiple times in interviews how much he values his college education, and how much he loves competing for the buckeyes individually and the team aspect of it.  I doubt we don't see him finish his career as a buckeye, even if he wins gold in Rio.

I think the statements stem from the prize money pair to Olympic medalists. If snyder accepts this (assuming he medals again) would he be eligible to wrestle ncaas anymore even? There's never been a clear assessment on this. It would be hard to walk away from 250k, though. That's worth quite a bit more than his scholarship, I'd be wiling to bet..

THis makes no sense whatsoever. He will want to become a head coach and must have a college degree.  Plus he only has to wrestle a few meets a year to get a full education paid for. Furthermore, there just aren't enough freestyle tournaments a year.  He can do Pan Ams, one a year in Russia, US Nationals, and maybe a couple more.  He trains full go freestyle right now anyway so he can put off the money in the short term, get his training paid for, as well as his education, wrestle and help his little brother, get to hobnob with Urban Meyer and the football team, and still train daily with Tervel and Rowlands and others.
