    LHU125 got a reaction from DocBZ in RTC's and the NCAA   
    I've heard rumors that the NCAA would possibly be looking into complete separation of RTC's on college campuses. Apparently the solution to this would be to have completely separate buildings (i.e. DT's M2, Steiber's wrestling academy) or just out right purchasing a building.
    I'm curious if other sports have a similar operation to wrestling's RTC's and what are the realistic possibilities that the NCAA pulls the plug on them?

    Here's a story on the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club and its subsequent impact on Penn State. It's also significantly more well endowed than a lot of other top RTCs in the country.

    21-year-old woman grew up always knowing women's wrestling was a thing. Loves the sport. Dedicates her life to it. 
    60-year-old men won't support them because they're the reason college programs died before they were born. Oh the logic.

    Comparing NFHS #'s in 2017-18 to NCAA Participation #'s in the same year for girls. This only includes NCAA schools, not schools from other divisions. With the NCAA not tracking women's wrestling, my women's college wrestling estimate will run high, approximating 30 athletes per school of the 17 NCAA schools that have wrestling programs prior to next season. The women's NCAA wrestling #'s are the only thing here that are have not officially been tracked.

    There will be 27 NCAA schools with varsity wrestling programs competing or scheduled to compete at the start of the 2020-21 season. We're adding women's programs at the NCAA level at a pretty good clip. In the last three years, 31 new women's teams have been added or announced to be added. Of those, 18 are at NCAA schools. 
    As it relates to tracked HS girls participation (from the NFHS), here's how girls wrestling has grown at the HS level in the past decade. 

    2009: 6,025
    2010: 6,134
    2011: 7,351
    2012: 8,235
    2013: 8,727
    2014: 9,904
    2015: 11,496
    2016: 13,496
    2017: 14,587
    2018: 16,542
    With now 18 states sanctioning or ready to sanction girls wrestling, this number will only go upward.

    The fact that you named national champs at each body type, that should tell you that there isn't a "best" body type.

    After the AWL and Real Pro Wrestling it seems that a lot of people want the same thing but why can't they come together for it? First match is slated for July 7th, 2019.

    Comments like this are why fans/wrestlers/alumni get upset. Why should a great coach not be at a smaller program? Believe it or not but coaches do have families and outside factors that influence their decisions. It isn't just solely on a paycheck and "fixing" a down program.
