NCAA proposal would radically alter championships structure

Recommended Posts

This does absolutely nothing to the individual championship. About the only difference is, when you open up TrackWrestling on Thursday morning, Air Force will not automatically be atop the team standings with zero points. Instead, teams will have points already earned. Advancement points will still presumably be scored the same way, same with placement and bonus points, and same with penalty points for acting like a donkey.

It seems to me that almost any way we change this all up will lead to an eternal set of arguments about how we weight the duals versus the tournament. There are so many injuries in wrestling that teams may have no chance to win it all if key wrestlers are injured during the regular season. I have always liked the format where everyone knows it is all about preparation, qualification and then performance at a specific time where it all matters most. In duals, if a wrestler loses the team gets no points. In the NCAA Tournament, that wrestler can wrestle back to 3rd and score in the 15-20 point range, depending on bonus points. I believe this is more indicative of the total team performance. Maybe I am old school but this is what I believe.
