this subject has been beaten to death. if, by now, you don't know the plan, the camps of coaches and their agendas, and the horrible ramifications the plan would have had if it went through, i'm not gonna change your mind now. you either don't know the whole story or can't extrapolate what that format would have done and what it would have looked like.
thank god it died.
as for the 'many coaches' who disagreed with me, i could care less. if we could trust them to make the best decisions we wouldn't have the half-ass system we have now.
and why in the world - if national duals did exist - would the first semester look any different than it does now? you think psu wrestles facundo vs. sacred heart? you think iowa would have wrestled spencer vs isu? you think cohlton schultz wrestles kerkvliet with the match already locked?
the only possible change to the first semester it would have caused is teams scheduling less competitive duals early on.
