With over 80 million people watching, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made sure to give a little shot out to the folks in Stillwater during the first Presidential debate on Monday night, at least that’s what Oklahoma State wrestler Tanner Allen thought.

Sometimes, it’s the little things that make you laugh. This was definitely one of them. Ironically, OSU mega booster T. Boone Pickens tried to hold a fundraiser for Trump in the spring, before it hit a snag.
Since then, T. Boone has publicly stated these are the, “strangest two candidates I’ve ever seen.” Hard to argue that one.
Maybe, this was Trump’s way to try and get a big donation from Pickens with only a few weeks left in the election?!
Although, as HCS’ Cameron Brock points out, maybe Trump is a Tech or Washington State fan, as he did once introduce the roster when Mike Leach was in Lubbock!

Either way, well done, Mr. Allen!
