    And what other college wrestling event, save the NCAA finals, will have 20 wrestlers ranked in the top 11 wrestling on the same day at the same time?

    It's like people don't care unless every match is a #1 vs. #2.

    Right, because people want to see the best. It's just human nature.

    The best is nice, but interesting match ups are nice as well.

    Guys with exciting styles, old high school rivals, new exciting freshmen.

    None of which describes gillespie/levalley, etc.

    They can't force guys to come.

    Fact is in a weight class like 149 other than any match between the top 3 guys there really aren't a lot of flashy match ups that can be made.

    Probably National Duals, probably Vegas. Maybe Midlands and Scuffle. The last couple years the Iowa/ISU duals may have been close to this.

    on one mat, in one dual. there have never been 10 #1 vs #2 matchups. I don't think we have the depth as a fanbase to be so fickle

    just like some will only come watch our sport when Iowa comes to town but blow off a match with north Dakota state.

    Welcome to the real world.

    Just because I don't watch the Pittsburgh Pirates or the Kansas City Royals doesn't mean I'm not a baseball fan. Just because I don't watch NBA developmental league or MLS doesn't mean i'm not a basketball or soccer fan. I like to see ALL sports at their highest level as do most.

    Apples and Oranges. Wrestling doesn't live in a real world, we live in some god-awful bubble where things like "good for the sport" circulate as an excuse to do anything.

    We're different. Wrestling fans complain about .... you know what, I'm not going there. I've gotten on too many rants where fickle fans have gotten under my skin so much, it's become detrimental to my mission of getting people to support all levels of wrestling.

    There are two chances to watch one session with 20 ranked wrestlers on one mat -- one is attended by 18,000 people, the other "isn't good enough" to care.

    There's one other event that has this concentration of collegiate talent. So it's the NCAA's or nothing. I'm becoming more jaded every day.
