    How is RPI determined?

    This is why nearly all the Lock Haven wrestlers have 40+ matches in a season. The chances of getting a solid RPI rank are worse than getting your win percentage up to qualify a spot.

    Willie Saylor Seeding Idea on FRL Today

    I get what you're saying but how do you see that as not a problem? Perhaps bias isn't the correct word but there needs to be a third party or an adjustment. I think the politics of every coach reaching out to other coaches to make a deal or reason to have their guy hurts the sport.

    Willie Saylor Seeding Idea on FRL Today

    The main two issues of seeding/qualifying right now imo: Zero penalty for MFF's (whether they're genuine or ducking) The coaches ranking and ranking bias Fixing these two components may help the process and prevent abuse of the system. However, I believe the current length of the season creates further abuse of whatever system is in place. Coaches will always find loopholes.

    NCAA Pigtails

    I'm sure this has been brought up before but what is the point of 33 wrestlers qualifying with 2 into a pigtail? Seems like such an unnecessary thing with a very simple solution. But as we know the NCAA plays stupid games to win stupid prizes.

    Kolat to Maryland..Mike Grey to Hofstra

    Agree to disagree.

    Kolat to Maryland..Mike Grey to Hofstra

    Kolat is fundraising well, just got a brand new facility and his team is coming along. Why leave to go to an absolute trainwreck? Also the allure of a "Big Ten" program isn't as strong to some...

    Kolat has no reason to leave Campbell

    EWL No longer - All 7 teams to the MAC

    Compared to the 14 spots they gave the EWL this year? The size and strength of the EWL (especially with the collapse of Edinboro) is a shell of its former self. Additionally, good luck getting a wildcard in the EWL if it comes down to that. As a Lock Haven alum I think the move is a good thing.

    How Title IX Destroyed SEC College Wrestling

    True, the NCAA should just get rid of all money losing sports and create women's football. Problem solved.

    How Title IX Destroyed SEC College Wrestling

    Some of the posts in this thread show such a blatant lack of understanding how college athletics/universities work. It's a shame really.

    Is Flo Growing Wrestling?

    I agree, their social media aspect is arguably their worst handled and most important component of their organization right now. Hence the huge amount of PR they've had to conduct. I do not work at Flo obviously but if I did I would be putting in a plan of action to correct their ongoing issues. Or at the very least make adjustments to the current strategy.

    Is Flo Growing Wrestling?

    I don't think you can solely measure participation and the number of programs as "growing the sport" for Flo. There are so many factors that go into both of those figures that I don't think you can seriously blame Flo for a DI program getting dropped or added. I do however think that Flo has created a great deal of exposure for the sport as a whole and it is not easily measured. The fact that they have 13 current posts on this forum is evidence that people know what they're doing and how they're doing it as it relates to wrestling. I, for one, would have no other option for watching many foreign wrestling if not for Flo and I'm sure that will increase with their deal with UWW. P.S. I despise the frat culture brought on by Flo and do not agree with many of the things they decide to do but still. Just my 2 cents.

    Nick Suriano

    Topics like these are insufferable and discredit just how hard collegiate wrestling is. All of his losses to top competition and suddenly the sky is falling. Better hope Cenzo doesn't lose a match or people will call for Carl to step down.

    Tech-to-Pin option

    I think you'd end up seeing a lot more stall outs from lower classed wrestlers attempting to not give up the pin. I'm all for seeing more pins but I'd also not much of a fan of seeing a wrestler get mauled and demoralized simply for 1 extra team point.
