Bedlam! Oklahoma @ Oklahoma St., Sunday Feb. 11, 2018
« on: December 10, 2015, 08:35:36 PM »
    Ready for Bedlam?    On Sunday, Feb. 11th, 2018, Oklahoma visited Oklahoma State for an in-state showdown.   



This happened to be the only dual between these two teams in wrestling this season, as they branched out to include additional schools such as California's recently reinstated Fresno State team on their schedules.   Any thoughts?    8)



For Oklahoma State's take on the situation:  http://okstate.com/news/2018/2/11/wrestling-cowboys-overwhelm-sooners-in-bedlam-31-6.aspx

For the University of Oklahoma's:   http://www.soonersports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=31000&ATCLID=211699843

As for 2017's Bedlam:

As for December 2016's Bedlam:

Oklahoma St. @ Oklahoma, Friday Dec. 2nd, 2016:



Most of the December '16 Bedlam showdown's matches were decided by a mere decision.   Reportedly thousands of fans showed up, too.   

Here's Oklahoma's perspective:

http://www.soonersports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=750308&SPID=127240&DB_LANG=C&DB_OEM_ID=31000&ATCLID=211336420&KEY=

Here's Oklahoma State's:

http://www.okstate.com/news/2016/12/2/wrestling-cowboys-overwhelm-sooners-in-first-bedlam-battle.aspx

Anyhow, to reiterate, the next Bedlam showdown takes place in Stillwater, OK on Sunday, Feb. 12th, 2017 @ 2p.m...   

   Do you know why  they call it Bedlam?    Well, Bedlam's the nickname of a hospital that's located in London, the United Kingdom which specializes in the treatment of insanity.   ;)  For more on how the name found its way to Oklahoma:

If only some of that NCAA D1 wrestling could somehow trickle down into and re-emerge within Texas:



Texas has has several Big 12 conference members (U.T., TCU, Texas Tech & Baylor) but presently no NCAA D1 wrestling teams...



Here's a national (interactive) map of existing NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA wrestling teams:

Doesn't Texas appear to be underserviced, considering how it has hundreds of guys' (and hundreds of gals') high school wrestling teams?

By the way, the Big 12's fairly new head honcho has strong wrestling credentials:

Anyhow here are the latest dual meet team rankings:

Any predictions?    8)

prediction:  pokes run away with it, again...but score will be marginally closer.  2nd prediction:  we will have more college (not club) wrestling in TX within 5 years.

 Nearly 7,000 fans turned out to watch the 2016 Bedlam rematch:

Not to be outdone though, Penn State hosted Ohio State and more than doubled that fan turnout during the  same weekend:

Anyhow as for the emergence of more (nonclub) college wrestling teams here in Texas during the next five years, wouldn't that be terrific?

What's poised to change in Texas, in your view?    Dozens of new NAIA, NJCAA or NCAA college wrestling programs have sprung up elsewhere since October of 2015, but none in Texas (yet):

As you know, Oklahoma has a new coaching staff:

When (if ever) might you predict that the Sooners could probably win their first Bedlam showdown under this new crew's direction?

Bedlam!  Oklahoma @ Oklahoma St., Sunday Feb. 11, 2018



There will reportedly only be one Bedlam in wrestling during the 2017-2018 season, while the U. of Oklahoma expands its list of conference opponents:

It's a very great initiative to support wrestling at colleges. We at https://essayontime.com.au/homework-help-in-australia support it too. Let students develop their wrestling skills. We have to be open for this.
