Re: Conference titles...

I agree, Branch does deserve a raise. Not going to get into the Burman thing but he hit a home run when he hired Branch. I have not seen the books but doubt that wrestling at Wyo. is a revenue producing sport although it could get there. In fact, outside of a very few schools, (Oklahoma State, Iowa,...

Conference titles...

With all the drama and bad news going on with Wyo athletics right now I thought some of you might be interested in some GOOD news. These guys aren't worried about who's hurt, who's been suspended etc. they are just out winning conference titles! http://www.gowyo.com/sports/m-wrestl/spec-rel/022314aa...

Re: NDSU V WYO

Big win for the Pokes against a very quality opponent. I have always been impressed with Coach Branch and his staff and this reinforces my beliefs. Boys were struggling a little earlier but looks like the ship has been righted and they are peaking at just the right time. This team is VERY young and ...

Re: It looks like Laramie population 50,000 is quite feasibl

I can only speak from my personal experience but some of you described my situation perfectly. After graduating from UW I would have loved to stay in WY. However there just weren't any jobs. The same held true for a majority of my friends. Some were WY natives and some were not, but ALL would have s...

My problem with college wrestling is its boring and I don't care.

Re: Big Win Last Night!!! Way to go Pokes!

As we predicted, Branch has them going in the right direction after the SDSU loss. Really proud of Pfeiffer. Undersized in all matches and out talented in most, he continues to out-heart a lot of opponents. Also some good work on top. Starting to pick up some pins and getting back points. Still expe...

Re: Wrestling Team Back on Track!

Definitely a great win. With a team this young, there is still going to be some inconsistencies but things are moving in the right direction. I agree that Branch will have them ready and get the most possible out of this team.

Lets hope we can get him. Wrestling is a sport where scholarship $ can be split so hopefully there is some money there for him.

Re: Tyler Cox returns home

OredIgger I agree completely. Pokes are young but that's no excuse. Some of the boys just haven't developed like expected and very inconsistent. I have a great deal of respect for Coach Branch and staff though. They will get things figured out and the ship in order.

Re: End of the Okie Blanchard Stadium Era

I would agree, it's tough seeing Okie leave, but like us all there is a time. I saw my first game there in the fall of 1970 (I think!) and played there several times in the late '70s. At that time it was a nice field and (seemed like) a large stadium. However the locker rooms for the visiting team w...

Re: Mark Branch Post Dual Interview

Wrestling fans can spin it all they want but at the end of the day, it's just wrestling. I wasn't saying you are spinning it, just that sometimes people say things like "They are ranked, and our best program we have to go watch them!".

Re: Mark Branch Post Dual Interview

I agree 100%. He came from a great program and wants to make UW a great program too. He is not using this university as a "stepping stone." UW, it's students and the whole state should be embracing this coach and program.

Re: With all the talk of joining the Big 12

Wrestling is now, and will be Wyo. strongest sport as far as national rankings. It would make sense for them to get in this conference that has such a strong tradition in wrestling. Wyo fans should be following this program and telling anyone that will listen about it.

Re: Fire Tom Burman

Not really sure if Burman is a good AD or not. He made a bad hire but corrected it with Shyatt. He hired Mark Branch who is as fine a wrestling coach as could possibly have been found. He has resurrected the wrestling program to a perennial Top 20 program, so that is definitely in his favor. One thi...
