Do you know more to the story Shaggy?

While it doesnít sound good, the article didnít say anything about cutting athletics.

Didnít they just add football?

Yes, none of the information in the article sounds good. But why in the world would a university drop a program that is national runner-up? Seems to me that program is probably helping the university.

To those asking about why would they do that based on their performance, former D2 powerhouse Nebraska Omaha cut their program coming off a national title. It wouldn't be unheard of.

I don't know much more than the article. I do know that the president of WJU could not answer the student body if they would be honoring their scholarships for next year.

Adding football did not seem like a great idea!

It does seem odd to add football when this financial crisis clearly wasn't sneaking up on them. There will be a lot of good wrestlers looking for new homes if this happens...

Wow...admittedly I don't follow everything outside D1, but I hadn't heard that about Nebraska Omaha. That truly sucks for that program & this would suck equally as much for a growing program at WJU! What a shame!

Youíd hate to see a program like this go under. Theyíve got a lot of Ohio boys on roster.

I've been told a number of their wrestlers are already in the NCAA transfer portal.

I was told by someone who works at WJU (not in athletics) that this (as in a big financial issue) was going to happen... 2 years ago.

Its crazy in general, but especially for the wrestling program. They didnt even max out at regionals, or nationals and came in 2nd- they've definitely got more in the tank and could challenge for a title in the coming years.

I was told be a wju wrestler and his father that all athletic programs are over after this year,basically the whole wrestling team went in the transfer portal.There last worry is sports there trying not to shut the doors.Is a shame if you committed there and now try to go somewhere else but all of the scholarship money is gone.

I have a very reliable source who told me there will be no cuts to athletic programs.

They kept athletics, but removed/ended quite a few academic programs/departments. I am guessing we will still see many wrestlers at WJU transfer out.

It sure would be tough to continue an athletic opportunity in College not knowing what the next year may bring.
If I was an athlete there and knew I wanted to continue at the highest level I could, I'm pretty certain I'd be looking to go somewhere else.

sounds like the

school is in some serious trouble and even considered just closing. I feel like this is the writing on the wall for many other colleges in the next couple of decades. Over spending and only counting on government funding to keep them afloat.

My son was on a visit at West Liberty last week. They just lost their coach and he was told by members of the team that the WJU coach was deciding between West Lib and Fairmount.

I'm shocked by this. I hope Warner lands on his feet. Any rumor mill on that front? Also, any word on the coach?

I'm guessing if the WJU coach lands at West Liberty.....Warner will be wrestling for West Liberty next season.

I'd love to see him go to a smaller D1 school to see how he would stack up, but a lateral move is probably the right call for him.

Bull crap. Heís a legit DI AA candidate. Easily top 15. Iím not sure where he goes but it needs to be a place that allows him to challenge for a title.
