What the hell kind of wrestling room has (shudder) WINDOWS?????? How the hell is mold supposed to form where the walls meet if the wrestling room isn't dark/dank??

Clearly Ohio State has no respect for wrestling tradition.

Makes it easier to watch the guys wrestling.

Too soon?

What Tom Ryan has accomplished at Ohio State is remarkable. 

It is.  But if he keeps coming in 2nd what is his excuse?

 

He has a better facility than Penn State, better overall athletics.  In state talent is just as good (or maybe even better) than Pennsylvania.  Funding/support is there too.

I shouldn't even address this because I think most people here are informed enough to recognize the absurdity, but anyway:

Speaking to windows and mats, our team used to go to a tournament in a domed facility and between 11:00 and 1:00 you didn't want to get your back put to the  mat because they wer HOT!!! This was in a relatively cold area!

They might find out that those windows cause them more trouble than they anticipated!!!

If only there were some sort of futuristic technology that allowed one to somehow, through science, block light that might be coming through said windows.  

I'd say Musk could probably figure it out but he seems pretty preoccupied with Mars.

Yeah the whole in state talent is equal or "arguably" better than PA is laughable.

The facilities are overkill and send a poor message to AD's on the fence about wrestling.

A perennial runner up program.

Your posts are so ridiculous should you be banned from this forum?  The Internet gods are not happy!

Windows won't be a problem and are great....it's great to see daylight in a wrestling room....the Bahna Wrestling Facility in Ann Arbor has windows...tinted, high enough people can't look in (a distraction), high enough a wrestler isn't going to go thru one.  Here's a tour of the Bahna Wrestling Facility as it was almost at completion.  As it was getting built, Tom Ryan was already investigating the whole process of it's development/construction.  This facility was close to one of the first of it's kind.

This is a bit of an absurd question, but given Ohio State's amazing facilities and hotbed of in state talent....does Tom Ryan's seat ever got hot if he doesn't win a team title again in the next 5 years?

They probably dont have that facility without Tom Ryan.

You mean like low-e glass? ;-)

Current energy codes have come a long way to set limits on solar heat gain , I would expect (hope?) the architect of the facility will have looked into this!

If he keeps coming in second to Cael then who would they replace Ryan with that would beat Cael?  Coaches who can't beat Ryan and get second?

I don't think anyone truly thinks they are even, let alone ahead of Pennsylvania, but over the years they consistently have proven to be #2 with a few years here and there going above Pennsylvania.  This past season was the lowest I can remember from Ohio in quite some time.  Even then, they still tied for 3rd!

Bingo. Windows allow sunshine in. Sunshine is anathema to wrestlers: we wilt like maggots in direct sunlight. Plus sunlight doesn't allow mold to grow in the corners of the wrestling room, and in the lockers. Mold that gives us superior strength, intelligence, sexual potency, and most importantly, modesty.

Meh, it's all based on participation numbers. PA wrestling isn't magical.
