  1. If they can play Football (And they have been playing this year) they should be able to do any Sport (I know Wrestling also has contact as part of the sport) if they play Football and cancel the other sport, it would look like they used football as a money grab as it along with basketball produce most of the revenue, if that happens it would give Football players more leverage in asking to be paid. For what it is worth Bethune Cookman which does NOT have a Wrestling team just recently it announced no sports until at least the beginning of the 21-22 school year in September 2021, will others follow? https://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/college-gridiron-365/os-sp-bethune-cookman-cancels-sports-20201027-rhuxld54bzbtbb2usied6raide-story.html
  2. This isn't fair, for every one female that would want to Wrestle in College, there is what? 100, 500, 1000 males (I have no idea, but the ratio would be overwhelming) Wrestling is all good it teaches Teamwork, Hard Work (Do any College Sport Teams work as hard as Wrestlers? I doubt it) Meritocracy (You get out of it, what you put into it, and if you work hard you will improve, (Wrestling is basically who works hardest improves the most) Goal setting, etc. Wrestling basically shows us the importance of the values we were all taught in school. Wrestling basically gives people a chance to participate regardless of size with some rare exceptions like too small though International has lower weights. The more spots not available will leave many with nothing to do, which is not good, what just concentrate on Academics? Party? EVERY COLLEGE SHOULD HAVE A WRESTLING TEAM.
  3. Or maybe multi Division Championship, example let the Winners of Division 2 and 3 get to wrestle in the Division 1 Championships, NAIA as well, but they are a different organization, so that is unlikely. A little off topic, but if the cuts are based on whether or not Football is played, would that mean the Programs WITHOUT Football teams are safe? If you don't have a Football team anyway obviously you wont lose money because Football is not played.
  4. Even if we lose a year or 2, almost everyone likes sports, so the Politicians (By way of taxpayers) will bail out the NCAA.

  6. I can't see it, some schools are having Classes ONLY Online as it is not safe, Imagine the Lawsuits if they have them play when at the SAME TIME they are saying it is not safe to go to class, much less Physical sports like Wrestling and Football, and knowing many Football Linemen have an underlying Condition (Obesity), also COVID is a Respiratory Virus which tend to be worse in Winter. Article on Football player who had it. https://www.crimsonquarry.com/2020/8/3/21353270/iu-freshman-brady-feeney-still-struggling-after-covid-19-diagnosis
  7. It appears it is based on. 1st = 16 2nd = 12 3rd = 10 4th = 9 5th = 7 So J. Smith = DNP 2-1-1 =44 points
  8. Looks like they give 16 points for a 1st, a lot of These Wrestlers wrestled when there was only 3 Years eligibility, 12 Wrestlers on this list won NCAA EVERY year they were eligible, Certainly some of the 11 that only had 3 years eligibility would have been 4 Time Champs if they had 4 Years, Uetake not winning NCAA if he had a 4th year would have been shocking, Most people who saw him say Uetake was the best. I know people are going to bring up Dan Gable losing to Larry Owings as anything can happen and it can but, but the chances of ALL Eleven Including Uetake ALL Losing if they had a 4th Year has to be very close to ZERO.
  9. Condensed Talent, Good For Fans, HORRIBLE for Participation, Maybe they can add Division 2 and 3 and NAIA and Just have one Division?
  10. He got into Stanford which is similar to the Ivy League academically, plus he is a high level athlete, My GUESS is he gets in.
  11. Princeton? has some good Wrestlers and is like Stanford Academically.
  12. My Friend Irleis "Cubanito" Perez knows Haugen , he went to Haugen's wedding, Perez had signed to fight then Champion Haugen for the Title, and then Bob Arum had Perez sign to face Pazienza in his first Defense (Contingent on Perez beating Haugen) Haugen's team decided to fight Pazienza and NOT Perez, Haugen's OWN TEAM said they wanted to fight Pazienza, because Pazienza was an easier fight for more Money, So Perez and Haugen NEVER FOUGHT, they were good friends, but Perez was upset (Which Haugen's team said they totally understand) They were interviewed together by Al Bernstein and Perez Called Haugen a Chicken Champion who was more interested in making money. That was the end of that friendship.
