  1. My favorite Win Win line: "Did he just wink?"
  2. I know. Like I said, it's not in writing yet. I heard this a few days ago from a coach who sits on one of the NCAA committees.
  3. About the 4-match minimum -- this isn't in writing yet, but what I've heard is that the four bouts must be against Div I opponents, but they do not have to be at tournament weight. Bouts at the conference tournament count towards the 4-match minimum. Here's the weird thing -- only the conference champion is an automatic qualifier to NCAAs, meaning that if the champ has fewer than four bouts he still qualifies. If a wrestler finishes at any of the other pre-allocated spots for a conference and doesn't have the four bouts, he doesn't qualify for NCAAs.
  4. Hofstra, Lehigh, and Navy have posted their schedules.
  5. "Nazareth under the snow" isn't taken. Yet.
  6. Imagine if Wade Schalles was just some footnote from the past, a college division legend .... Today, he would be!
  7. Looks like F&M is out; also an EIWA member. https://www.godiplomats.com/general/2020-21/releases/20201210hh13ii
  8. In the particular case of Hamilton, any transmission would have taken place before he tested positive. He won the race two weeks ago and had symptoms the next day when he tested positive. He didn't rejoin the team until a few days ago, after negative tests. Said today's was the most tiring race of his career; there was doubt he would be able to complete it at the start. F1 races last less than two hours, unlike some of NASCAR's marathons.
  9. Formula One racing completed its 2020 season today. F1 races all over the world, the drivers and teams come from multiple countries. The season start was delayed several months, some drivers and team members missed events (including 7-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, who missed last week's race and was confined to bed for a week; he drove today and finished third), and it was a weird season: no races outside of Europe and the Middle East, 17 races in just 23 weeks, went to tracks they normally don't see, everyone on pit road wore masks all race long. But they got the season in. It can be done as long as you accept the fact that it won't look normal and you take precautions.
  10. Some will get to March. I fully expect that there will be a few outbreaks that will keep some teams, or even some conferences, home. I fully expected that MLB would have to shut down when a couple of teams missed a ton of games early on. They made it. NCAA Wrestling will make it too, though it may not be pretty.
  11. Posted recently on the NCAA website. The championship manual goes into greater detail and can be found here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/ncaaorg/championships/sports/wrestling/d1/men/2020-21D1MWR_PreChampionshipsManual.pdf Note: They don't post stuff like this when they're not planning on a season. 2020-21 NCAA DIVISION I WRESTLING PRE-ALLOCATION FORMULA 1. Scenario #1 (100% of traditional brackets). 330 wrestlers (33 wrestlers per weight class). • Pre-allocations. The champion at each weight class for all conference tournaments. (1) 10 x 7 = 70 (21% of field) (2) Historical data to pre-allocate 220 (66% of field) other spots across the conferences. (3) Committee uses selection criteria to select 40 at-large (13% of field). • Brackets need to be balanced so allocations will need to be by weight class. 2. Scenario #2 (Approximately 75% of traditional brackets). 240 wrestlers (24 wrestlers per weight class). • Pre-Allocations. The champion at each weight class for all conference tournaments. (1) 10 x 7 = 70 (29% of field). (2) Historical data to pre-allocate 130 (54% of field) other spots across the conferences. (3) Committee use selection criteria to select 40 (17% of field) at-large. • Brackets need to be balanced so allocations will need to be by weight class. 3. Scenario #3 (Approximately 50% of traditional brackets). 160 wrestlers (16 wrestlers per weight class). • Pre-Allocations. The champion at each weight class for all conference tournaments. (1) 10 x 7 = 70 (45% of field). (2) Historical data to pre-allocate 50 (30% of field) other spots across the conferences. (3) Committee uses selection criteria to select 40 at-large (25% of field). • Brackets need to be balanced so allocations will need to be by weight class.

  13. Conference SIDs? Some football teams are managing, though there are some setbacks. Denver had to play a sub wide receiver at QB today; they got throttled but the game was played. I thought for sure MLB would have to shut down after a couple of teams had entire weeks wiped out, but they managed. Despite the extra year proposed by the NCAA, I don't think many athletes can put their lives on hold for an additional year. I think there's a big push to get the year in somehow for those who are able to compete. I think there's a better than even chance we see an NCAA tournament, although we may lose teams and even a conference or two.
