  1. Additionally, as an example, what happens to BTN scheduling when BTN has to make room (which they will have to) for USC/UCLA men's and women's basketball. That's a minimum of 60 home games per year during the winter season. Likely, this will push some linear duals to digital platforms. 

    Further, while it will positively impact the budgets for Big Ten schools as a whole, it will greatly decrease the revenue at a lot of other schools, e.g. Oregon State. Given Title IX requirements, the first sports that will be in jeopardy would be men's Olympic sports.

    It would be nice next time to have the RTCs stick to their own squads and get closer to weight with weigh ins at the right time.  Add in NLWC, HWC and UPenn as well.


    Great event, duals are awesome and seeing matches with team implications was so exciting.  The freestyle rules and time per match and per dual made this a much much better fan product than folkstyle. 

    It also seemed like bricks, reviews and the dreaded YOLO end of match bricks were seldom used, if that was intentional in any way = more please!

    There's definitely room for improvement for us. The event was a test and there will likely be some adjustments next year (e.g. # of teams, weigh-ins both days, roster makeup, etc...). The goal for the first year was to see if the concept worked for wrestlers, coaches and fans.

    You're really going to make me deep dive The Wrestling Room aren't you?  Pretty compelling screenshot of his contract that says otherwise there.

    Not sure what to tell you. Every other athlete has seen Bajrang's signed agreement to confirm that it matches theirs (outside of the $750 stipend).

    Is this confirmed or?

    Wouldn't be very fair for one squad to bring 5 86kg guys when another brings 4 65kg guys.

    I can confirm that nobody has submitted lineups like that. Most are a top guy per weight and then 4 guys that can be rotated in strategically or if there are question marks on someone on the roster (e.g. maybe are coming back from an injury).
