First posting for me since football season. I was unable to respond to the month old wrestling thread started by Pcasooner, so I started this to show where OU wrestling is.
After last season Coach Spates called it a career. He's still a huge fan and can be seen at Sooner's matches though. Our new coach is Mark Cody. Cody previously coached at American University, and took them all the way to 5th at NCAAs, while setting many school records. OU managed to procure Cody's services at coach, and OU's fans are very enthusiastic about him. He's a very positive coach and gets the best out of his wrestlers.
Jordan Esco already described how the Sooners fared at the conference championship, so I'll move on from there. OU's first year under Cody at the NCAAs they had 2 All Americans, including Kendrick Maple (3rd) and Nick Lester (8th). All Sooner wrestling fans are expecting big things from Coach Cody, and he will deliver. I'm making a not-so-bold prediction that Cody will have OU finishing in the top 5 every year within 5 years.
