    Default Is There A Team Race?

    I asked this on another forum with no answer. Are they having a team race this year? If so, then why all of the endless debate about the national duals being the new format to determine the team title?

    It looks like there should be a very competitive team race this year. If we are lucky it could come down to the 197 finals. but the National duals could be a lot of fun if done correctly. I think the National Duals should be done after the ncaa tourney and done at the home of the higher seed. Friday and Sunday for 2 weeks. Imagine how much money could be made with teams like Iowa getting 4 more home duals after all other wrestling is over.

    There will be a team race at the NCAA Tournament this year. Pre-season there was a movement to get it changed, but it did not pass.

    Is this a trick question? Were they actually considering not keeping team scores or am I misunderstading Ban's question?

    I think so. The proposal was to eliminate the team score and have the national duals the only team championship for the season.

    I'm one of the minority supporters of that idea, but it is apparently dead for now, as Zapp said.

    My understanding is that the proposal was tabled to try to get more consensus. I don't believe it's off the table but will be reconsidered at a later date. But also, the plan was to continue to have a team score at the March individual tournament--it just would no longer be the NCAA team championship. That is still being debated from what I hear.

    I think until everybody is on board, leave it like it is.

    I wouldn't have any probelm with having a dual champion and a tourney champion.

    It is a blend of rankings, some ranking service rank the schools on individual tourney points and others on dual strength. Really 2 type teams in some cases, maybe not the top 5 or so, 10-20 it is. Look at Oklahoma, a average dual team at best, but will do pretty good in the individual tourney standings with Brewer, Maple, Lesters and Graham.

    Just wait until next year when OU has all those guys back (minus Graham) PLUS Howe, Rutt & Patterson!!

    The proposal was to keep the team scores at the NCAA Tournament, but it wouldn't be an NCAA-sanctioned NCAA team championship, though it would still be one for the individuals. Basically, the official NCAA individual champs would be decided at the NCAA tournament as they always are, but the NCAA Team Champion would be decided by the National Duals. The team scores that would be kept at the NCAA tournament would essentially be an NWCA-type championship, like the Midlands or something.
