Thread: National Duals Regionals

  1. #1

    Default National Duals Regionals

    Anyone know how many teams are at each regional? Is it 4 or 8? Anyone know when the brackets are supposed to come out?

    Seemed like there were six when they had announced who was in which region...I assume they will seed it somehow? Should be some interesting match ups in each round I'm sure.

    Does anyone know if any of National Duals are going to be televised? I don't see anything on B1G Network or Direct TV listings. I may start getting the shakes if I can't watch NCAA wrestling (B1G Network has been loaded lately) and ..... gasp.....have to start watching NCAA basketball!

    Seems to me they had a perfect chance to make it 16 or 32 and they kind of blew it. Why make a team have a bye? Thats a huge advantage to the team with the bye.

    I agree Gof. They really screwed the pooch on this one. Lots of things that weren't thought out very well. Hopefully they will learn and make better choices next year.

    Next year just start inviting teams #1-16 at the Christmas Break. Give them an incentive to come to the tournament, officially weight the tournament in the Director's Cup standings for college. If a team begs out of it, invite #17 and so on and so on until you get 16. Then just do it all on one weekend. Its only four matches in two days, they wrestle more than that at Vegas, Midlands, SS etc.
