    wrestlenewbie got a reaction from IU89 in Mason Parris wins Senior Nationals   
    Though the field was diluted due to Senior Nationals not being a qualifier for anything this year, Mason Parris goes 10-0, 9-4, 9-6. 7-0, 12-2. He absolutely manhandled Tanner Hall in the final.
     
    Even without the other top guys (Gwiazdowski, Steveson, Nelson, Kerkvliet) it was a very impressive win.

    Think of it as a realization by USA Wrestling that the best coaching available was at the collegiate level. If they wanted to raise USA's standing in international wrestling it had to start with the college campus. By establishing the RTC system and ensuring compliance with NCAA rules they could have the best of both worlds. There is no question it gives a recruiting advantage to the schools that have an RTC, but it also serves the greater goal of raising the international competitiveness of USA Wrestling. on balance, the latter has been more important than the former.

    Since the Olympics are going to end up getting cancelled too, I propose an August NCAA Olympics. Let everybody from winter and spring sports get back together for training camps at the beginning of July and hold a condensed Championships extravaganza from like August 7 to 21 before universities are back in session. Winter championships are basically already locked and loaded. Just figure out their locations and schedules. Spring sports could do all-in conference or qualifier events the first few days and championships the last few days.
     
    Put asterisks next to all the titles if people want since some athletes and coaches would have already moved on, but give them a once-in-a-lifetime replacement event anyway.

    wrestlenewbie got a reaction from FWwrestling1996 in NCAA's canceled   
    I feel like the scholarship issue is actually minor. The 9.9 limit is an artificial NCAA limit that could easily be raised to some other artificial limit. The coaches have been asking for that limit to be raised for years. As for affordability based on the ever growing size of school endowments I suspect that most schools could afford it. And if they choose not to offer more then the transfer portal is open.

    9th - 13 NCAA qualifiers ranks tied for ninth most by state with Iowa. Pennsylvania leads the pack with 48, followed by Ohio (31), Illinois (28), NJ (23), California (19), NY (17), Michigan (17) and Minnesota (16).  
    6th - Using the Flo rankings you can also come up with a projected number of points scored by state (assuming no bonus points). Here Indiana moves up to 6th with 91.5. Penn still leads the pack at 254 followed by Ohio (152), Illinois (139), NJ (104.5) and Minn (95.5).  
    3rd - But things get real interesting when you calculate projected points per wrestler. Now Indiana moves up to third on the list at 7.04. Indiana only trails West Virginia (13.5) and Arizona (9.8), but those two states have only 2 and 3 wrestlers qualified, respectively.  
    1st - If you limit the list to the 11 states with double digit wrestlers qualified Indiana leads by a decent margin:

    wrestlenewbie got a reaction from Disco in Where does Chad Red get seeded at NCAAs?   
    I heard that comment on FRL today too. The funniest part about that is they start by touting Nomad's bona fides on NCAA seeding. Brag about how he knows the seeding criteria better than anyone else in the media. Than they completely ignore the criteria that Nomad had just written up in an article that morning to say Red will probably be the 3 seed because that is where he is in their rankings. 
     
    By the criteria I think he is 6th, but there is a secondary process, that I am not at all clear on, that can lead to variation around the criteria. Piecing things together from different sources, it sounds like after the criteria seeding they then review for things that dont pass the sniff test. It also sounds like there is a max number of slots that a wrestler can be moved up or down from the initial criteria. 
     
    A lot of words to say, I dont really know anything.

    The match was a lot closer than the poll. Looked like Red had more of a plan than the last time they met. Just needs to work on getting up after a takedown against Lee.

    Couldn't sleep so I was checking out some old wrestling videos  readying for the Big Ten Tournament this weekend, and found these...  You may have seen these before, but I thought they were worth a look again.  The first is a news story by a Cincinnati station when Mason was 11.  The 2nd after he won his first State Championship.  The 3rd after he won Gold at the UWW World Championships in August.
