I don't the big 12 should be worth as much as the big 10.

Good, because it wouldn't be.  Big 10 wrestlers will wrestle more matches to earn the bonus.  Thus the point totals will be greater in the big 10.

Another thing to consider:

Think about Big 12 125 this year
Alan Waters
Jon Morrison
Ryak Finch
Jarrod Patterson

That's your bracket, don't know about the order but a VERY good wrestler will go 0-2 in their conference.  That simply wouldn't happen in any other conference.  I don't think 125 is the only example in the big 12 where this will happen.

This fact alone makes drafting Big 12 wrestlers an EXTREME risk.  You're very good wrestler could go 0-2 while some sub-par kid in the East Regional who was pinned by the 4th place big 12er gets 3 pins en route to a title over nobodies.

Drafting or not drafting wrestlers shouldn't come down to choosing who has the easier conference, rather the better wrestlers.  I would had to see someone qualify and waste a playoff spot by drafting mediocre wrestlers from horrible conferences. 

I think those of you against the bonus for big 12 aren't thinking of it with the quite perspective.

The equal bonus doesn't suggest that one conference is equal to the other.  Certainly the Big 10 will have more AA's and probably NC's this year.  The equal bonus makes up for the lack of matches that a wrestler has and makes drafting a big 12 wrestler not an extreme liability.

I was looking at 125 and really is there anyone that McD is NOT capable of pinning?  I don't think he's ever stuck Sanders, but he's scored back on him a few times.

I would say there's nobody he couldn't bonus, not going to say he could pin every d1 wrestler at 125.

I would like to open up the discussion on the supplemental draft. I would like to have an extra add with no drop. Basically adding one number to our existing roster for the rest of the season. What say all of you?

Also I think the bonus should stay the same for Big 12 champions...they are missing out on the opportunity to pick up regular points that the big ten champs will due to the number of matches they actually wrestle.
.

The fact that they don't have thay many matches is the exact reason I think they should not have the same bonus. Why should a guy that wrestles two matches to win conference get the same bonus as someone who wrestles a grinder like the Big 10? The bonus to me is because you won a tough tournament, not too make up for lack of matches in the tournament. If that was the logic for the bonus, than the Big 10 would have less bonus than the other conference tournaments.
By the same token why should someone who wins the East Regional or So Con get the same as Big 12?  They very rarely have guys even ranked, much less competition between ranked wrestlers.

Big 12 is competitive at all weights every season.  It's still a very hard conference to win(Probably the 3rd toughest)

Last year they only had 5, so what's really different?  There were lots of conference champs who only wrestled 2 matches, so for most scenarios it's the exact same amount of matches.

One thing to consider about the Big 12:  Yes, it is a 4 team conference and doesn't match the rigor of the Big 10 or EIWA.  However, the points that will be awarded will be so minuscule and make drafting Big 12 guys an even larger liability.  Big 12 teams typically have limited schedules as it is.  Only wrestling 2 matches at Conference is a distinct disadvantage given the typical quality of opponent.  SoCon or East Regional scrubs get more matches against inferior competition, yet are awarded more handsomely?  This doesn't seem logical to me.

in the NAIA to have a tournament count as a "qualifier" for a spot at Nationals (or at least for it to use to count) you had to finish in the top percent of the attached wrestlers there given a certain number of teams.  so I'm fine with counting a guys win a tournament IF there are a certain number of schools there with attached wrestlers from DI or a certain number of guys ranked in the top 20??? or so in his bracket.  all wins over DI opponets should count regardless of where/when they happen

What constitutes D1?  Anybody on a D1 roster?  Normally the 3rd or 4th stringers get sent to the crappy opens.  I don't think getting wins over Cleveland State's 3rd string guys is really in the spirit of competition.

Just playing devils advocate.

When is the tentative start date for the draft?  Lots of active legal dates to iron out...

We need to post the rules so that we may vote on potential rule changes....just sayin'....I'm not sure how I feel about scoring every single match.....need to noodle on it.

Why should people who don't pay attention to scheduling be rewarded is my only question?  When people learn to draft worse wrestlers with cake schedules the league turns into something completely different. 

Does being a champ give me any more weight?

This board seems so dead
Why would the person who just quit the league come over and create a thread about inactivity when that is the very reason they are no longer in the league anymore?
