Episode 434 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast approaches the situation at Division II Truman State University in Missouri with its Athletic Director Jerry Wollmering.
On May 2, the school announced it was going to cut wrestling and men's tennis as a cost-cutting measure to help combat cuts in funding school-wide. We'll ask Wollmering why the coaches of the respective teams weren't given the opportunity first to raise funds, what any potential timeline looks like and how this decision impacts students in Missouri and its conference mates within the Great Lakes Valley Conference.
Is TSU's cost-effective education to blame? Will there be a chance to reverse this decision? There's a lot of questions still yet to be answered, but here's where we start.
