Rosselli to OU

Recommended Posts

Strike 1 for Lou

It's a strike agaisnt a guy for trying to hire a guy who is a native Oklahoman, a 4XAA, an NCAA Champ, a World Team member, and coached Maple and Brewer in recent years?

 

Considering they have no assistants and it's tough to make hires in September, it seem like a great move by Roselli.

Why would OU want a guy who is so clueless in recruiting? All I know is OU was a good program before Lightner came aboard. Get rid of the stink.

You blame the assistant who coached the only success the team had?  

 

But most importantly, who do you think Roselli is going to hire in September?  If Roselli is making this offer it is obviously with the current wrestlers in mind.  By making the offer it is either on Lightner instead of him when Lightner leaves, or it helps keep a few of the existing guys around until Roselli can have a chance to recruit in future years.  Either way it is the obvious choice to ask him to stick around for a year.  

 

And for Lightner, he collects a paycheck for a year since it is no easier for him to find a job in september than it is for Roselli to assemble a staff in september.

I agree and think the offer to hire is to keep some select kids around for the immediate future. The wrestlers had looked at Mike as the guy even when Cody was there. A little surprised Roselli would keep him from the standpoint of potential anemosity from the wrestlers. Kinda believe in the outta site outta mind theory.

Roselli needs an overhaul. There's not any redeemable talent in the room among the underclassmen-- save for Jeffries-- and the incoming freshmen haven't seen much of Cody/Lightner. Keeping Lightner is the wrong move.
