  1. Great topic!

    I really like Lachlan McNeil. 

    at Tech, with Andonian moving up, i'm told Henson at 149 out of the gate is in play. 

    I wouldn't be surprised if one of Cardenas or Garvin goes right away for Stanford at 157.

    Ali Herrera at 165 at Oklahoma.

    Luka Wick - Cal Poly.

    But i'll tell ya who my most interesting guy is - Silas Allred at 197 for Nebraska. He's really tough. pinned Bastida this year. kinda caught him, and bastida gassed. but Allred is (to me) still really interesting

    Downward spiral to what?  To trophy team. They may well be the third best team.  They are well short of champion, which is their standard.

    you said 'downward spiral' in previous post.

    3rd, when your standard is 1st, isnt a downward spiral to me.

    but to be clear, i'm not just talking about your comment. there is a oft repeated narrative that OKST has gone belly up, which i just don't see as the case.

    Of course.  Berge as well.  It would have been a little strange if Cael just showed up in Hungary on his own and volunteered his services.  

    It's still the only time I've seen Cael travel internationally for an age-level event, and the timing was.... interesting.  To say the least.  

    sorry to mess up a great conspiracy, but Cael has been on several non-senior trips.

    Again, why do you keep wanting to compare it to the current tournament?  Most of us are suggesting to have it in addition to the current tournament, changing nothing about the current tournament except for removing the team score.  That would barely reduce the “fanfare” if at all.

    And National Duals never decided the official team champion.  
     

    i asked this earlier in the thread but...

    so you think a national duals format w/ a ncaa title slapped to it would make it wildly popular?

    second point (and maybe this is why i appear to be a prick and dismiss some things)

    A duals tournament for the NCAA title and an individual tournament a week or two later

    is never ever ever gonna happen.

    nor should it.

    don't suggest it. don't use it as an assumption or a starting point.

    it 100% is not going to happen.

    i'm not saying that because i don't want it to. i'm saying b/c it's not feasible (for a myriad of reasons).

    so i think anyone here proposing to have both needs to start with the 'when' question.

    i assume that you know my stance - i'm all for national duals at the right time.

    I don't see why we cannot have both.  Even if we were to want to change/shorten the official season to starting in January, we could get a lot of wrestling in.

    Take the conference champions then however many wildcards, based off a format similar to the current individual at-large selections, so we get to 8.  2 day tournament, seeded - again using similar formula to what we do for individuals.  Day 1 is first round and semifinals.  Day 3 is finals televized live on ESPN.

    Conferences.  2 weeks later Individuals.  2 weeks later Team.  Or team then individuals.

    because wrestling leadership is stupid and won't do the sensible thing and have a season that has any semblance of sense. 

    both National Duals and the individual NCAA tournament are never going to work during the same semester. nor should anyone try to force it upon them.

    The gap is already HUGE between the haves & have nots.  Can’t see how holding a dual format would make the “competitive balance” any worse than it already is.

    because proponents of duals are hoping for fluke and happenstance with once in a blue moon upsets. the same reason they vouch for it is the same reason it's an inferior arbiter or 'best'
