Dear Wrestling: All sports need to change to stay relevant and exciting!

Recommended Posts

All levels of wrestling need to constantly change and innovate to keep the sport exciting!


Look at the NFL rule changes in the last few years to make the game safer, produce more scoring, and shorten the length of games.

  • The NNFL owners want to even get rid of the extra point.

I think the NCAA Wrestling Rules Committee should put everything on the table for discussion, every year.  Change is good.


When wrestlers and coaches learn how to game the current system of rules change them.  It's in their nature to adapt to the set of rules presented them.  Want more scoring? Change the rules!!!


The lesson of professional sports on this topic is clear.

Football v. Baseball (Which sport has more rule changes in the past 10 years?)

Change just for the sake of change isn't always good. Look how bad international wrestling was with the 2 out of 3 periods, the ball grab and the bracket system. They went from something that worked in the 80s and 90s and then trashed it in a long series of failed experiments that still have not been cleaned up.
