    MAC adds 3!!

    Some years ago an Iowa State 150 pounder (Mike Pickford?) o-fered at the Big 8s. He went to NCAAs and lost his first bout. He placed 3rd.

    Husker- I didn't know you were into SM.
  4. Obviously 1 and 2 would be exclusive but why 3? It's possible for both to pay or either one or neither. They aren't the same organization. I will try to clarify some of this for everyone. Hopefully it makes sense.In the round of 16, the away would all be responsible for funding their travel to the site they were assigned too.The home team would incur all costs to host the event. The host would keep any and all revenue generated from the event.The home team could provide a revenue share back to the away school to help offset their travel.The NWCA had agreed to cover up to 10K from each of the away schools (if the host could not provide a revenue share to cover this), to help offset their travel cost.Hopefully that makes some sense.PT Thanks, Pat.
  5. So, here's where we are now: [*:252x3bss]You indicate its your belief that the NCAA is picking up the expenses (either directly or indirectly). [*:252x3bss]The NCAA, however, has stated that the participating schools will incur the expenses. [*:252x3bss]And, in a third iteration, Koll's email said the NWCA would cover up to $10,000 of travel expenses. Taken at face value, all three of the above statements are mutually exclusive. And, while I'm not prone to conspiracy theories, such contradictions give one pause in accepting that everything is on the up-and-up with regard to the proposal. Obviously 1 and 2 would be exclusive but why 3? It's possible for both to pay or either one or neither. They aren't the same organization.

    Cael's Top-10 Reasons for saying NO!

    That's where Cael comes in to the argument. Whatever. But that's a different argument.

    Cael's Top-10 Reasons for saying NO!

    Except, Ocho, you're saying it's not the best way to determine who's 6th best as opposed to the best. Whenever people bring up that argument, it never seems to be about the number 1 team.
  8. Before SHP blows a gasket (just kidding), he previously pointed out to me that Golf DOES have individual championships the first three days of the event and then team championships the next three. I believe it's an 8 team bracket with match play. I don't think that changes your main point too much though.

    What the Dual Proposal is really about

    Simple really. Went to college. Email only used 8 letters. "Tirapelle" has 9. That's what they gave me -- tirapell. Then you're probably old enough to remember the 8+3 character filenames in DOS as well. I'm old enough to remember decks of cards.

    What the Dual Proposal is really about

    But my main question wasn't answered Tirapell- why did you drop the 'e'?

    ND to ACC

    Of course, there were deep pockets that did endow the program some years ago.

    What the Dual Proposal is really about

    I honestly could not disagree with you more, and I can't imagine anyone who's been in both situations wouldn't either. Tirapell (Why lose the e btw?), you are talking about the excitement for those of you on the inside of that meet. The wrestlers, coaches and local fans. I think the other poster is talking about how we, the general fans might feel. Especially given the likelihood of a rematch in DI.

    Letter from NWCA President Rob Koll

    Has NC State's budget shrunk significantly this year? They managed to find a way to partake in 16 duals last year. Why would they need to increase the budget to decrease the number of duals by 25%? Not to speak for her but only 10 of those appeared to be prior to last year's deadline. Got the feeling that the deadline might be slightly earlier under the newer proposal so they would have to add duals earlier and then still wrestle during the time frame of the event.

    Cael's Top-10 Reasons for saying NO!

    Do we need this particular thing so bad we'll spank those not doing what we want? If it was really that good we'd have more consensus. I think the answer's out there somewhere (and possibly not far from the current proposals) but threats don't make it better.

    How many programs are fully funded?

    That is how most schools get their funding levels increased but some schools do just give scholarships to their athletes without an endowment supporting it. These funds often come from the general athletic budget, student fees, or athletic revenues (for schools with football and/or basketball TV deals). Though, even those with fully funded school support often have endowments. For instance, Penn State's wrestling endowment contributed $220,908 to the wrestling program last year. Also, while offering the maximum 9.9 scholarships, Penn State had 12 wrestlers receiving athletic scholarships which came to a total cost of $376,907. I wasn't suggesting that the endowment was alumni generated. I didn't really know what term to use but was simply saying they set aside a dollar amount available.

    How many programs are fully funded?

    Didn't read all posts well today- was out most of the day- so hopefully not repeating. I may be missing something but are people thinking that schools fund scholarships and not endow a certain amount of money to be used for scholarships? The schools set aside a certain fund of money based on success of fund raising. Some schools divide that by the in-state to see how many scholarships are available. They can use that money for out of state but it delivers fewer scholarships.

    Worst forum argument about duals proposal

    Golf actually does, as does tennis (which is a sport you didn't mention). I stand corrected on golf. They go for 6 days. 3 days for individual and then 3 more for team match play. Wish we could do it that way somehow. I didn't mention tennis because I had a suspicion they might do something like that.

    Worst forum argument about duals proposal

    You do realize that the NCAA has in its manual a definition of Team vs Individual sports. In the 2012-2013 Div I manual rule 17.02.12 .1 and .2- (guys this is mostly for SHP even though he probably has the references memorized) pages 210-211. Wrestling is listed as an individual sport along with Track and Field, Golf and Swimming and Diving among several others. Are you saying that those sports should determine their championships by duals?

    Vote Passed 39-36

    Does that mean Koll was for it? Didn't speak to him since they made some adjustments.
  21. gimpeltf

    Vote Passed 39-36

    I wonder how the committee will react to the vote. 39-36 isn't exactly a ringing endorsement from the coaches. This is a far cry from the announced 'unanimous' straw poll earlier. Maybe somebody heard them say anonymous like the Coach on Cheers.

    NCAAs Des Moines= sucks!

    You didn't spell there correctly. (sorry five)

    Worst forum argument about duals proposal

    The main thing that shot this down earlier to my knowledge was that this would only have a chance in D I. The D 2/3 kids/coaches more often do other sports in the spring. It would affect the officials also, if they do other sports.
