  1. Didn’t read the entire thread, but .... it seems to me that most folks on here don’t get or don’t want to understand or comprehend the “big picture”. A P5 West Coast Program that is gone. D1 Wrestling is in trouble. Period. Let’s have a NCAA Tourney with 20 Programs. Go ahead & laugh but we are headed there. If this continues, “apathy” will dominate the Wrestling landscape going forward as fewer relevant Universities/Colleges will offer the sport we love. Worried.....
  2. jdalu75 - I couldn’t agree more with your position. I won’t repeat your thoughts, although I am tempted. I am taking the same precaution. I am longing/eager/desperate to see NCAA Wrestling but it’s just not a priority considering the overall situation which is still very dire. Things got crazy here in Missouri this past Holiday weekend .... where I live at the “Lake of the Ozarks” (see CNN, Twitter, etc). I would be surprised to see any wrestling in 2020, but am hopeful we can get to a point of at least having a “partial” Season & 2021 NCAA Tourney.
  3. That was my first trip to NCAA’s. Mainly went to see Missouri HS kids Schatzman & TJ Hill. Both AA. I was hooked after that & have subsequently attended every NCAA except Albany.
  4. The rich get richer. Further divides the “haves” from the “have nots”. IMO, bad for D1 Wrestling.
  5. Agree. This is a terrible thing for D1 Wrestling. I am fearful that this is the first of several D1 Programs to be cut as a result of the “NCAA economic stress” resulting from this covid situation.
  6. I think many of us agree that the 16 week regular season needs to “mean more” than it currently does. The circumstances of this Season (cancelled Championships) highlites the obvious shortcoming IMO. Not exactly sure how we realistically make the Regular Season mean MORE (Dual Championship, etc.). I would like to see more meaningful discussion on this topic from our current leaders, high profile coaches, media/FLO, etc.
  7. Columbia is somewhat isolated from the population hubs (St. Louis, Kansas City, & Springfield). This really affects their ability to consistently produce higher attendance numbers. Not an excuse, just a reality of geography & population. I have season tickets every year but it’s a full day to attend a dual (200 mile round trip). I have friends that go with me to NCAA’s for the past 20 years, but they won’t attend a dual unless it’s an Okie St. type of opponent. The MAC affiliation is a big factor for attendance.
  8. I kind of speculated this may happen (on the Kolat to Navy thread). Not certain if staying within was a better option for Campbell than a National search ? Hoping Sentes can maintain the momentum of this improving Program.
  9. This is not jross algo. It is wrestlestat. Do you have a better, alternative algo that should be used for these fantasy “projections” ? If not, let’s just enjoy these considering we have no “real Tournament”.
  10. 100% echo these points. Well stated Schuteandscore.
  11. If it bores you, don’t read it. It is very interesting to many people, myself included. Not all of these threads are intended to satisfy you. Thank you jross & please continue.
  12. Agree. The Semi’s & R12 are my 2 favorite rounds (and are huge for Team Points). As they occur at the SAME time, there is no way to give these “simultaneous” matches the attention they deserve. Every year without fail, I finish watching the 3rd period of a great Semi match to find out that I just missed the end of an awesome R12 match. Irritating. Wish they could seperate these somehow, someway. Gimpeltf idea merits consideration IMO.
  13. Well done ! Looking forward to the other weight classes.
  14. Does Campbell stay within & promote Scotti Sentes (or) do they conduct a national search similar to what Oregon State is currently doing ? Assuming Kolat is leaving on good terms, his recommendations would likely carry significant weight.
  15. His replacement at Campbell ? Hoping that Program continues to be relevant.
  16. #23 Manchio & #25 Gutierrez to the R12. As improbable as this may seem, this stuff happens every NCAA Tourney.
  17. FWIW, my bracket picks are identical so far with the exception of #17 Schwarm who I picked to advance to R16.
  18. This will be very interesting, especially on the Consolation side as it won’t be completely “chalk“.
  19. One topic per weight. One round at a time, pause for some amount of time for comments/discussion, then proceed with next round/bout numbers per the bracket. You could try to finish one weight class per day or one weight class every 2-3 days. This could keep discussion going for some time. Just my thoughts.
  20. Wow, quite the breakdown. Well done. I didn’t see Alan Hart (Missouri) mentioned. He has wrestled well recently since presumably learning how to handle a tough cut to 133. I really thought he would be a great “Cinderella candidate” to make it to the R12 or even to the 7th place match. It’s all speculation at this point.
