    Sounds more like something that would come out of your pie hole. Not mine.

    Don't worry about it Spider. I usually ignore everything Jammer says. I'll get back to that philosophy right....Meow!

    Give Jammen some credit... that was genuinely witty without being excessively nasty.

    It's going to cheapen the team aspect of the national tournament and I'm against it. If they could figure out a way to make duals better without effing with Nationals I'd be all in.
    Completely agree. Don't take away the importance of the individual tournament by doing away with the team race. Add to the duals by making them a separate national champion, not the definitive national champion.

    The former is what my wife hears, and the latter is the internal conversation in my head.

    If she reads this, you are screwed, but not the other kind of screwed.

    I get that they want to raise the importance of duals but don't take away from the importance of the tournament in the process. Two champions; an NCAA Dual Meet champion and an NCAA Tournament champion. Why not?
