    This can only mean that Mauller has the easiest path to the finals of any 4 seed this season.  I like it.

    Highlights everything blatantly wrong with current challenge rules. NCAA is borderline incompetent with some of their rule implementations

    NCAA seeds:
    Lugo
    O'Connor
    Mauller
    Sasso
    Kolodzik
    Lewallen
    Sasso gets the highest seed of any non champ. I suppose many Iowa fans will hope Sasso stays ahead of Mauller, but Mizzou has made a living getting high seeds due to conference champ status. Anyone see it differently?

    Tbar is on that “leaderboard”. That tells me all I need to know about the flawed metric being used.

    Wow, Mocco got jobbed big time in his semifinal.  Down 4-3 with 30 sec left, he gets neutral on the edge, but immediately locks up a cradle.  Ref signals 2 td prematurely, and Mocco rolls him over 2 seconds later as time runs out the ref has counted 2 backs.  SIUE challenges the td call and wins, so they erase his escape, td, and backs and he has to start down with 19 sec remaining still down by 1.  He gives up 2 garbage backs at the last second when desperate.  If the ref had simply waited until Mocco rolled the cradle through, Mocco would have won 7-4.  Horrible.

    At 133, Allan Hart from Mizzou has the dominant top game to run up the score quickly against a higher seed and bust a bracket.
    At 174, Connor Flynn is a senior and I could see him  pull an upset.  He beat Mekhi Lewis last year.
    At 184, Dylan Wisman just gave Valencia his toughest match of the year and is a senior.  I could see him upsetting a high seed.
    At 197, Wyatt Koelling just beat Norfleet, who someone predicted would finish top 4, so he can be a tough out as well.

    tigerfan got a reaction from Show_Me in If Iowa does become the second team....   
    In 2009 I believe, no team had more than 1 champ or more than 5 AA's, and only 2 teams had both: Iowa and Mizzou.  Iowa won it, and Mizzou took 7th.  Bonus points, as we all know, are significant.  IIRC, Iowa benefited from a couple of MFF on the backside that year.  When the champs are determined in large measure by whether or not their opponent actually shows up, something about the scoring system needs improvement, imho.

    tigerfan got a reaction from Show_Me in Now imagine THAT determining the team champion   
    The only people who can possibly still be convinced that the NCAA tournament is a better way to determine the team champion are obviously hardcore PSU fans.  I'm not biased against either Iowa or PSU, I think they are both equally worthless, but that dual was epic. Casual/non-fans everywhere (like my girlfriend) can appreciate a contest like that and get excited about the matches/results, and be done in 2 hours.  There is no comparison to NCAA's and their indecipherable scoring that often results in virtually no drama during the finals on Sat night.  
    RBY was responsible for over 1/3 or PSU's points, so the argument that stars should be able to earn a disproportionate amount of points (like at NCAA's) is moot. It happens in duals too.
    Impressive and gutty performances by outmatched wrestlers (149/157) are completely discounted at NCAA's, but are another source of excitement in duals for those teams.
    I was actually really invested in the HWT match, which is almost unheard of at NCAA's.  They had to switch the order of the finals to counteract that effect, which is an admission in itself.
    Look at the reactions of the wrestlers themselves.  To those who think wrestling is primarily an individual sport, why do wrestlers at this level get that excited during duals? You see teammates sitting in the stands eating, resting, etc. for 40-60% of their teammates matches at NCAA's.  There are 3-4 dozen different teams where recruits can reasonable expect to win a national title for themselves, yet they often cite team chemistry, "fit", family atmosphere, etc. as the difference makers in their decisions.  Teams MATTER to these guys, and to fans, and pretty much exclusively matter to casual/non-fans.
    I refuse to accept that the horse is dead.  Never quit.

    Simply remove the team champion farcical aspect from the Individual Tournament and determine THE team champion in a dual format.
    No, you don't have to award the other divisions additional crowns either.
