Our presence on the national stage would go up, but who cares if the majority of our schools are weak. Because then we really didnít strengthen our state, just 10 kids who transferred. It seems that a large number of transfers would weaken surrounding teams and because of an artificial super power school that was created and not developed.
Programs should take kids that attend their school and teach them wrestling and make them better people and competitors. Developing these characteristics is the job of the school coach. Then when they reach a more competitive level send them to some higher level club practices. Coaches are not going to want to do this if every time they send a kid he comes back thinking of transferring. This is a shame because high level clubs are necessary for success at the highest level.
I would look at the number of successful and competitive school teams in our state as a measurement of the strength of Oregon wrestling. Not how 10 stud transfers do back east.
