    Could you give us the truth of the matter? I’m honestly asking for clarification. How many coaches and which ones were asked and who was against it/for it?

    i've done so a million times on this board and i'm over it.

    i only keep allowing myself to be sucked back into this thread b/c i read obvious misconceptions (and a ton of bad takes).

    someone ban me! 

  2. let me ask this question (and i'm not being rhetorical)

    you guys think that the reason ncaa's is the most wild, well attended wrestling event on earth is not because it's the most exciting, but because it has the ncaa title attached to it?

    as in, if you had a national duals at the end of the year and slapped an ncaa title on to it, you honestly believe that the excitement, attendance, press, fanfare, and coverage would be equal to or greater than what we have now?

    For deciding the best individual per weight, it is the best possible format I could think of and probably the most fair. For deciding the team championship it is a convoluted system putting way to many things to chance.

    you're completely lying. 

    at the heart of the issue - for every single person that wants duals to determine the champion - is that fluke stuff can happen in duals and thus more 'surprises'.

    in bracketed individuals, a fluke can happen and that guy can still mitigate it by coming back for 3 or 5th or whatever.

    i'm done arguing about it. it's never gonna happen and for good reason. 

    i really look forward to the same thread popping up in 350ish days

    Difficult for an entirely different reason.  If Michigan State has a narrow lead over CSUB heading into the championship matches of an NCAA tournament, 90% of fans wouldn't independently know when the tournament is decided.  100% would know when the BB is decided.

    that's not true.

    1) you can look at the scoreboard

    2) it's 4 for a win + bonus. it's not difficult.

    I'll stop beating around the bush on this.

    The way we score our greatest event ... is freaking stupid.

    There's a reason I announce how many points each win is worth at the nationals. I shouldn't have to. It's our greatest event and that type of thing should be understood, just like how many points any scoring action is in  (almost) any other sport. 


    now do Worlds

    As to the general format, I would say, as somebody suggested above, the top 6-8 teams based on a ranking get in, similar to the current college football system.


    and you think that is going to be more attended and watched than the individual NCAA tournament? based on what data/information/assumptions?

    whose rankings? 

    didn't we already have something similar to this at a different time of year ?

    Haven't you said you wanted to have an official dual tournament but in December or something?


    I don't think you need more than 8 teams.  So it's 2 more matches.    Going off of a ranking would probably be sufficient.  

    Yes, i did. what was proposed in this thread is replacing the current ncaa tournament. which is 1) stupid and 2) will never happen
