Investigation is over, yet nothing is happening. Heard the wrestlers are filing a suit, because they have basically lost 6 months of their career when it comes to training and direction.

This has been talked about a bit on "InterMat wrestling ".

They had a thread in their college forum discussing it.

Radio silence from O.U. , since the coaches were placed on Administrative Leave.

There's speculation O.U. has come to a decision, but nothing has been made public.

The wrestlers are not happy.

According to the posts on Intermat, none of the wrestlers have had any access to their coaches since day one.

What's gong on has to be an issue , especially for incoming freshmen.

Also ,keeping everyone in the dark may push kids into the portal.

Would have thought the A.D. would have made some kind of statement by now.
I mean this goes back to the middle of March.

There's a July 13,2023 The Post article about President Gonzalez's
July 12,2023 "Round Table" , to discus her goals and priorities.

Based on her comments quoted in the article, including being a "student -first President" , I would think that resolving the issues with the wrestling program, including the fact that the Student Athletes on the team have been been kept in limbo since March, would be a priority.

Sent her an email.
See what kind of response I get.

Still no announcement on the decision? This is crazy, I'm hearing nothing on campus.

To date I haven't gotten a response from the new President or from the A.D.

The Post article saying the wresting team's coaching staff was placed
on Administrative Leave was published on March 17,2023.

Since then, nothing.

Even if O.U. doesn't want to "go public" its obscene that, apparently, no one
has had the contacted any of the team members.

As of today (8/31/23) O.U has yet to issue a public statement on the wrestling
program.

Ohiobobcats.com does have an 8/29/23 piece saying saying 4 Ohio wrestlers have made Inter Mat Wrestlers Preseason Rankings.

Inter Mat Wrestling's preseason rankings list the top 35 in each weight class.

That's a positive.

Guess that's as "official" an announcement as the Athletic Department intends to
make.

The Roster should let people figure out who the portal.
Same with which coaches are back.
