Lets just take 125 this year for example, Pac 12 gets 1 allocation at NCAA's, Big 12 top 4 go, big 10 top 8 go.
I don't know the full list for each conference at every weight but my point is I think it will be hard to pull a top notch assistant away from the bigger conferences just like it is hard to pull the good wrestlers because they have a better chance of going to NCAA's as individuals and teams by going or staying at the bigger conferences.
Yes i know it is possible in the Pac 12 to win the conference and go to NCAA's and a good coach should be able to get his team to that point but I do believe the kids and coaches look at the Pac 12 as a weak conference and a coach knows that makes it hard to recruit the best. At no fault of Oregon State I think this is a hard sale to a good coach. More so now then in years past.
