    And there's definitely something to say for investing in your campus experience. That's an important part of college. But the balance has been completely out of whack for a long time. I also think schools are overestimating the impact of their investment. Sure, the students love high tech dorms, but that's rarely a determining factor. It's more of an added bonus. Most students don't even live in the dorms after their freshman year anyway.
    I'd love to see these public institutions reinvest in their actual academic services. Better pay for faculty and staff. Stop leaning on grad students and adjuncts to teach so many courses. Offer better career services departments. If you want a high tech dorm, find a private donor. Otherwise, just make sure you're offering a safe place for these students to live in relative comfort, not luxury. They'll end up living in much worse conditions in off campus housing after a year anyway.

    People that are under the impression that things will go back to normal are going to be sorely mistaken.

    Also why the country has almost $2 trillion in student loan debt. School used to be affordable before their were ipads in the walls and stuff.

    Sorry for sounding like that.  I’m just tired of people whining about things like this or similar (last year seniors should get another redshirt year).  These kind of issues need to be seen in the big picture. They are minor and we should not expect big accommodations given the bigger issues. 
    Many are missing the big picture.

    Was watching a dual meet this past year and a caster mentioned that a black wrestler "looked fast" 5 seconds into action. It's the little things like that and once you realize it's a problem, you realize it is far more common than you think.

    How many freestyle matches have you watched that were too much like sumo? People get so amped up to see someone "shoot em off" the mat for a stall call so I don't think it would be any different for a point. If anything it would make it more exciting. The sumo thing is such a poor argument to me. 
    P.S. Sumo is lit.

    This is going to have a profound effect on this year. That decision alone is going to hurt and potentially kill programs and universities.

    I also understand that the university denied the request from the family to rename the school, University of Suriano. That probably was the proverbial “final nail in the coffin.”

    I'll be blunt...there isn't likely to be a wrestling season until there's a vaccine. Most likely, there won't be any sports until there's a vaccine, but if things are opened up on a sport-by-sport basis, wrestling is probably going to be the very last sport to be allowed, due to the nature of it and the relative lack of protective equipment.

    Athletics aren't even step 1. Getting the policies in place for students to come back to campus would be the first thing I would imagine universities are working on. 
    So many schools need their precious and ridiculously expensive room and board money.
