Thread: National Duals Moved to February

  1. #1

    Default National Duals Moved to February

    hokiesports.com :: Wrestling Schedule

    At least if Virginia Tech's schedule that they just released is accurate.

    Any of the usual suspects have anything more substantive on this?

    Leave it to a VA school to break the big news.

    Sadly no more info from me..

    This is the second straight year* that Virginia Tech has been the first school to release their schedule.

    *Lock Haven actually released theirs first, but has since pulled it.

    I think Boise State's Schedule for last year was just released Tuesday.

    February seems like a TERRIBLE time to do it, no? Would teams want to go thru that much of a grind that close to conferences?

    Zapp-I can't say this for certain, but I believe that this is something of a "transition" season. If I am not mistaken, starting with the 2012-2013 season, conference schedules will be required to be completed by the first weekend in February, and qualifying will be granted on a basis that is consistent with the way bids are granted to "team" NCAA Championships.

    PSU has released their schedule and National Duals is not on it. I expect a large outcry from some of you, since the world was ending last year when Iowa did not attend.

    I will reserve the right to express my disapointment with them since I did the same last year with Iowa, but it's not a huge deal to me. I know it is for some of you, so let's hear it.

    Herkey, I'm mostly with you. I'd like to see them there most years, but really, who cares? Iowa wrestles at PSU Sunday, January 22nd. Let's call that the national dual finals.

    All the best teams arent going to be there unless it is a recognized championship by the NCAA. I'm fine with that...However, I'd like to hear, SHP and all the rest of the guys get their panties in a bunch over PSU not going. People were quick to attack Brands and Iowa last year so I expect the same treatment for Cael and PSU.
