NDSU beats another school with half their starters out and it is held up as an example of how well the program is doing.

Not even close.

Bucky needs to retire and the school needs to hire North Dakota native Troy Steiner, currently the head assistant to Jim Zalesky at Oregon State.

Get Steiner and watch the program grow so they can be competitive with these better teams at full strength. The worst thing that could happen to NDSU wrestling is for Bucky's kid to take over the program. A disaster in the making.

Put Bucky out to pasture, promote him to an office or something, but get a new coach and watch the program improve. Steiner is the best fit but there are a host of excellent coaches ready to apply when the job is announced. So, Announce is soon, NDSU.
