A Real National Dual Champion?
As news breaks out of Fort Launderdale, FL and the National Wrestling Coaches Asscosiation (NWCA) about the new proposal to make the national duals a true NCAA national championship, emotions are probably mixed. We are actually rather excited about this. As we have often pointed out here at TOM, we believe if you continue to do what you have always done, you will continue to get what you have always got.
