Care to elaborate? lol sorry this is news to me.. Sad i know but i guess i havent really paid attention

Cael says he does be he doesn’t care about duals. To him they just get in the way of winning the grand prize in March. Suriano getting hurt against Oklahoma State was the nail in the coffin of the “National Duals Coffin.”

Dual meets, especially those not at home, have been deemed none important by a percentage of the top coaches.  

It’s funny that to actually see how strong a team is overall is to have a dual meet. Tournaments only tell you who has the most individuals that excel.

Clearly true, but most AD still basically go off AA totals when deciding if a coaches should get a raise or keep his job. And many recruits only want to know if their coach can get them to nationals.  Winning duals or even putting butts in seats at them still seems to be secondary to the national tournament.  Until something else helps measure the size of a coaches back pocket most will always look past everything in the season but what gets their guts the best path at the tournament.

Curious where/what do you base that off of?  Not what I've observed at Univ level.
