    Our sport will continue to decline until it appeals to typical sport fans.

    I won't claim to be a top ten historian but I've had friendships and working relationships with several who are. Dellinger, sayenga, Hammond probably top the list. Bryant and diehl are pretty close. A little rubbed off on me. 
    I do see a mistake in saying cowboys that I didn't notice at first. To me it was pretty obvious we were talking sooners the whole time given the names involved.

    And once again, someone doesn't understand how this works. It's strictly objective. All by the numbers. Team points for placement. No adjustments, no opinions. If you don't like it, make your own list.

    not sure exactly what you mean, but I know many people who learned more from sports than school

    Colleges should only have sports that are supported by private donations and revenue. Or perhaps no sports at all.
    It’s absurd that colleges force students to borrow money in order to pay into athletic budgets that exist to provide other students with fun.  It’s also absurd that taxpayers are similarly forced to subsidize others’ fun. 
    At the end of the day, school should be about kids obtaining job skills, and not about forcing students and taxpayers to pay for others’ fun. 
    I thought Americans hated redistributing wealth like that.

    the student loan crisis is in part due to a degree in something that doesn't pay, translate etc... 
    think of all the degrees issued by the high cost liberal arts schools, 
    and govt subsidizing the loans means the cost goes up and up and up

    I think the educational advantages of athletics are overrated.

    I could see it going to two divisions, like Ice Hockey etc. I guess D2 teams could choose to go either way

    One of the issues is that many are realizing that college is a waste of time and money.

    Fully agree will be a big issue with non-scholarship/D3 guys.  The technical proficiency and mat time required - to even wrestle at an avg D3 school - takes a huge hit when you miss an entire season.  Soccer, football, baseball, basketball etc etc players don’t regress to the extent a wrestler does by missing an entire year.  Probably similar with swimming, gymnastics and a few others.  Kids at D3 level just say no mas.  I mean at least in hs there are rivalry matches and u can be halfway cool on the wrestling team, most of that is irrelevant at D3 schools.  Could be off base though who knows

    Can you blame them? For most that aren't on a full-ride you're still spending thousands of dollars each year at a university. Now, perhaps more than ever, guys are being forced into looking at the bigger picture of their post-athletic careers. Regardless of where you stand on it, Covid is forcing a lot of people to look in the mirror.

    Our championship needs a catchy name - something other than "Nationals" or "NCAAs".  Frozen Four, Final Four, and World Series are definitive monikers for their respective sports.
