We totally need to score the keystone classic this season.... check out the thread...  http://forum.theopenmat.com/index.php/topic,15886.0.html

I remember this conversation, and I will add this tournament. We still need a consensus as to whether we score every match wrestled for the whole season, as well.

I prefer all matches scored.

But I feel stronger about giving the Big XII champs and runners up SOME bonus... not as much as the BeeOneGee but something.

Bonus Issue: Though it does devalue wrestlers from the Big 12 I think the proposed 3 tiered system is best.  Every year you have to figure out how to make the post-season while also having guys who will score when they get there.  Its part of the challenge.  If we just wanted the best guys to always get the most points we may as well just score the NCAAs and that would be less fun.  I absolutely disagree with waiting until conference tournament time to determine the bonus.  We need to know the point sturcture during the draft to make informed choices.

Supplemental issue:  Pick up another guy without dropping for sure.  This is an easy choice to increase the fun.

Score all matches: I'd rather not, but its fine with me if we do.  Talk about trying to walk a line between having guys who score during the season and guys who will score in the play-offs. This would be all kinds of tough, but I'm not sure it would be fun.  I'll vote against it.

Bonus Issue: I vote no Change

Supplemental issue:  I vote to pick up one without dropping 

Score all matches: I'm torn on this one.  There're pros and cons with each.  I'll keep reading posts and see if someone can sway me to one side or the other.

Akin,

Should we put a sticky with a formal vote option and deadline?

 I'd be all in for adding the Buffalo Open .buffalo has several studs and their tournament should be quality .
You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.
