At one point I'd heard the NCAA was going to change the criteria for being a Div I school.
But it is/was required to have 14 teams; either 7 men's and 7 women's or 6 men's and 8 women's. There is also a requirement to have "X" number of teams each competitive season (Fall, Winter, Spring).
Bluestater is spot on. Wrestling people need to get involved with their schools. Attending duals, etc., helps, but we need to go beyond that. There are alumni associations, booster groups, or in Maryland's case I became very involved in our letter winners group; the M Club.
This provides access to ADs and significant people on campus. It helps personalizes us by connecting real people and alumni to our sport. In my case I was a member of the athletic council, which gave me an insight into the issues the athletic department faced, which helped us steer a course for wrestling that was connected to the political and fiscal realities Maryland faced.
We can sit on the sideline, complain about the lack of respect wrestling receives, tear down the coaches and athletes or, like Bluestater said, we can be proactive and become involved while our programs are still alive.
