    Default NCAA Finals starting at 174lb?

    I heard from a friend that the finals will start at 174lb so that the (potential) Dake-Taylor rematch will be the last match.
    Innovative thinking by the officials if this is true.

    Just hope it doesn't come crashing down on their heads, woo Monk and Yates for the 165 title!

    I have to admit, I don't really like the idea. It kind of belittles the others - wrestling isn't usually about that.

    I hae never been to the finals (amye next year!) but I have heard most people don't stay for all the finals and it is fairly cleared out by the time the Heavies wrestle.
    This should keep everybody in their seats to the end.

    This is the kind of decision that I wish they would have made after the finals were set, if they're going to decide to change the starting weight (and I'm a big fan of starting at 125 for all meets) then decide after the field is set which weight is the "marquee" weight after you know who's going to represent the weights. Besides the Dake vs Taylor match may not be all that exciting they've scored what a grand total of 10 points between the two of them in the past two matches?
